Random Curiosity

Fall 2017 Preview!

With the temperature dropping (finally), it can only mean one thing: it’s time for the fall season of anime! And when a new season starts, it can only mean one thing: it’s time for Random Curiosity’s Fall 2017 Preview! The preview that tries its best to find the gems of the season while giving you ample information to make an informed decision on what to spend your valuable time on. This season is chock full of sequels as well as your typical fare of 4-komas, romances, idol shows, and romcoms. And if you thought I was joking about sequels (or continuations, I don’t discriminate), we have Love Live! Sunshine!! Season 2, 3-gatsu no Lion 2nd Season, Osomatsu-san 2, and Himouto! Umaru-chan R just to name a few. Alongside all of those we also have an adaptation of a prequel (and sequel) to the popular “hero” show Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuusha de Aru, an adorable slice-of-life that combines anime-tropes with maid cafes in Blend S, a painfully accurate description of a point in time most if not all online gamers experience in Netojuu no Susume, and last but not least the return of our guilty pleasure cooking show Shokugeki no Souma: San no Sara. Overall, not too shabby of a season, even if it is a little heavy on the sequels.
