Spring 2017 Preview!

Every three months we hear comments about how each season is filled with more sequels, and about the lack of originality and how anime is just going downhill. Well it’s about time that anime comes back in full force with something for everyone, which it is as we welcome back spring! Spring has traditionally been known as a good season for anime, and this year is no exception. We’re not just getting any ol’ sequels, but sequels to the best anime from 2013: Shingeki no Kyojin and Uchouten Kazoku! Along with these chart-toppers are several classics like Naruto sequel Boruto and Natsume Yuujin-chou. And it doesn’t end there. We also welcome back recent favorites like Boku no Hero Academia and Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata, as well as new adaptations from Kabukibu! and Clockwork Planet. There’s no denying it, I’m super hyped up for this season, and you probably are as well, so let’s just see jump straight into the preview.
