This time there weren't any series that I was familiar with in advance, I chose all of these just based on which animation style and storyline caught my interest. At this point they all seem very promising and I don't think I need to drop any series out this season!

Hahah okay don't even ask :DD I have no idea why I started watching this, to be honest... I just saw the trailer and thought wtf, this sounds so dumb that I want to see it. But there actually seems to be potential in the series, the characters and setting seem funny :) I think it's quite unique as well, haven't ever heard of a similar series and it's refreshing to see something different for chance. The few upcoming episodes will probably tell what will become of this series, but I'm optimistic!
Current progress: 3/12
People often think that I only like cute things, but I'm actually a big fan of action stuff as well! I wanted to watch this series, since I thought it might be similar to Black Lagoon, another series (that I like) with "gangsters" and a lot of action XD They do have some similar elements and before doing some research I could've sworn that the creators of Gangsta had something to do with Black Lagoon as well, but it seems they're not connected at all.
The "story" has focused more on introducing and getting to know the characters so far, so I don't know what direction this series will go to, but I can say for sure that I've loved the three episodes that I've watched!

I'm not familiar with the game this is based on, so the world and characters are brand new to me (I've only bumped into figures of the main female character :D). I'm not that impressed yet and the first episode seemed a bit boring to me, but I'll still watch a few more episodes to see how it goes. Though I have to say that I loved one character, the fierce instructor lady Tsubaki Amamiya who is voiced by Tanaka Atsuko (Bayonetta, Motoko in Ghost in the Shell, Caster in Fate/Stay Night), basically the most gorgeous strong female voice there is ;3; ♥♥ If the series turns out to be boring overall, I might keep watching just because of her lol :'D
Akagami no Shirayuki-hime
Current progress: 2/??
Snow White with red hair? Sounds interesting enough XD Though the setting looks a bit like a typical clichéd anime love story in progress. I don't have an opinion on the characters yet, somehow they don't really stand out, neither positively nor negatively... I'm not overly excited about the series, but interested enough to keep watching for now :3
The iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls 2nd Season
Current progress: 0/12
Well, I've seen the first season and liked it, so naturally I want to see the second season as well XD This type of series are something that I watch mainly for the cute characters and positive attitude, not with any hard expectations. The first episode will be aired on next Saturday and I'm looking forward to it!
To sum up, I think Prison School and Gangsta are the series I'm most excited about in this bunch!
If you're watching some of these or any other of the summer animes, please do let me know your thoughts on them :)
