Now that every show has had 2-3 episodes to prove itself, it’s time to tell you what we’ll be blogging this season. This is Random Curiosity’s Spring 2016 blogging schedule.

As always, this is a tentative overview of our plans for the new season … is what I used to say, but with 2-3 episodes under our belts we’re pretty confident in our picks. Will some of them blow up in our faces? Probably. But this is what we’re going with.

Big Order – 01

「オーダー!目覚めろ、悪の力! BIG destruction」 (OoDaa! Mesameru, Warunori! BIG destruction)
“Order! Awaken, Evil Powers! Big Destruction”

What if… you could have any wish granted? What would you wish for?

Tonkatsu DJ Agetarou – 01

「昼も夜もアゲてやる!」 (Hiru mo Yoru mo Agete Yaru!)

Here’s a story about two things which are equally part of the Shibuya experience.

Wagamama High Spec – 01

「1」

And, lo, did he look upon the face of anime, and wept with the sorrow.

Sansha Sanyou – 01

「パンの耳ですわ」 (Pan’nomimidesu wa)
“These Are Bread Crusts”

Cute. Fun. Cheery. Everything you’d expect and a dash more.

Tanaka-kun wa Itsumo Kedaruge – 01

「田中くんと太田くん」 (Tanaka-kun to Ohta-kun)
“Tanaka-kun and Ohta-kun”

The search for perfection never ends.

Kyoukai no RINNE 2 – 01

「黒猫 朧」 (Kuro Neko Oboro)
“Black Cat Oboro

Kyoukai no RINNE is back, meaning another comedy worth your time is added to an already packed spring season.

Kiznaiver – 01

「一目あつたその日から一絆の花咲くこともある」 (Hitome Atsuta Sonohi Kara Ichi Kizuna no Hana Saku Koto mo Aru)
“Sometimes, a Bond Can Bloom from the First Day Eye Contact is Made”

Strongest potential I’ve yet seen for a seriously powerful show.

Hai-Furi – 01

「初航海でピンチ!」 (Hatsu Kōkai de Pinchi! )
“In a Pinch on Our Maiden Voyage!”

My best guess for Hai-Furi is Girls und Panzer, on the high seas, and even more dangerous.

Kuromukuro – 01

「鬼の降る空」 (Oni no Furu Sora)
“A Demon Falls from the Sky”

Kuromukuro‘s debut episode makes a convincing case for its worth thanks to spectacular visuals and a slow, digestible pace.

Flying Witch – 01

「6年振りの不思議」 (Rokunenfuri no Fushigi)
“Mystery After Six Years”

TL;DR If you’re looking for a fun and funny slice-of-life that feels a little like Kiki’s Delivery Service mashed together with a little bit of Nichijou, there’s no going wrong with Flying Witch!

12-Sai. Chicchana Mune no Tokimeki – 01

「キス・キライ・スキ」 (Kisu ・ Kirai ・ Suki)
“Kiss ・ Hate ・ Kiss”

And now it’s time for something that’s likely to go horribly underwatched, even though it was one of the better premieres of an already impressive spring season. If you like good old fashion shojo romance, then 12-sai is the anime for you.

Shounen Maid – 01

「 はたらかざる者食うべからず」 (Hatarakazaru Mono Kuubekarazu)
“Those Who Do Not Work Shall Not Eat”

Shounen Maid is a series that will surprise a lot of people – if they give it the chance.

Sakamoto Desu ga? – 01

「1年2組 坂本君/ビー・クワイエット」 (1-Nen 2-kumi Sakamoto-kun/Bī Kuwaietto)
“Class 1-2′s Sakamoto-kun”

I think it’s fair to say Sakamoto desu ga? is not going for photorealism or complex character drama. It’s just trying to be hilarious, and it accomplishes it much of the time.
