Previously I shared my "anime menu" for spring 2016. Once again, I recommend checking out Anichart to see which series are currently airing and which are going to air later, in case you're looking for some anime to watch~
Feel free to share your own favorites from this season too! ^3^
Love Live! Sunshine!!
Current Progress: 5/??
Being a big fan of Love Live and the original characters, I had a bit mixed feelings about this new series with different characters... But I have to say that I've enjoyed the episodes a lot! The characters have slowly started growing on me (my favorite girls at the moment are Dia and Kanan :3) and I'm looking forward to seeing how their journey goes. It's adorable how there are many mentions to μ's, like posters on the walls, clips of their performances, etc.
B-PROJECT: Kodou Ambitious
Current Progress: 4/12
I like idol anime, so naturally this series got added to my watchlist right away. I watched the first few episodes and thought that "oh, this is really similar to Uta no Prince-sama", but after doing some research I found out that the both series are actually from the same creators! So that explains the similarity XD The series has been fun so far and I'm a bit sad that it's going to be only 12 episodes... I could imagine this being quite popular in Japan, so hopefully there'll be at least a second season ;3;
Btw, my favorite characters are Goushi, Tatsuhiro and Tomohisa~ ♥
Show By Rock!! Short!!
Current Progress: 2/12
Having watched the Show By Rock series, I obviously was interested in seeing these short episodes as well. There doesn't seem to be any plot, they're just random events of the characters' lives. A second season of Show By Rock is going to start airing this autumn, so excited about that >3<
Current Progress: 3/??
Cats in bananas has to be one of the silliest things ever X'D These are short 3-minute episodes and probably directed more at kids, but I find the series fun to watch and also a great way to learn some Japanese!
Danganronpa 3: The End of Kibougamine Gakuen
Current Progress: 3/12 (Mirai-hen) & 3/12 (Zetsubou-hen)
I really enjoyed the anime adaption of the first game and was curious about this new series as well, it's apparently not based on any of the games and a completely original new story! I try not to bond with any of the characters, since they are dying one by one and it's be hard for me if I find favorites and they die XD
The anime is split into two Arcs; Mirai-hen is a sequel to the Danganronpa 2 game, while Zetsubou-hen tells the background story of some of the characters. They're meant to be watched side by side (episode 1 of Mirai-hen, then episode 1 of Zetsubou-hen, then episode 2 of Mirai-hen, and so on).
