Weekly Shounen Jump
Now that the winter preview has been released … four weeks ago—read this post if you’re wondering why the schedule is only coming out now—it’s time to tell you what we’re blogging this season. This is Random Curiosity’s Winter 2016 blogging schedule.
As always, this is a tentative overview of our plans for the new season … is what I would usually say, but it’s different this time. With 2-3 episodes under our belts, we’ve got a good idea of what each show entails, and 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.
However, that doesn’t mean this list is absolutely final. Any show that hasn’t had two episodes—this season, that’s Ajin—is still up in the air, and if anything else changes, we’ll modify our plans accordingly.
In show news, Heavy Object fans, you’re in luck! Though the series has lost its luster for me, Takkun decided to take up the banner, so he’ll continue covering Frolaytia’s heavy ob—I mean, that crazy sci-fi battle show. As for everyone else, I’m pleased with both the series we’re covering, and how many are good this season—and also slightly annoyed. I wanted to watch less anime this season. Guh. Life is hard.
In staff news, with the monthly impressions coming to an end (sorry fans, read the last two monthlies for our reasons), Cherrie is back to blogging weekly. Jig is also getting into the swing of things and picking up a second show. Everything else is business as usual for now, though you might see a wild Zephyr reappear next season, and Zanibas is hoping to return before the end of the year, real life priorities willing. Let’s all hope the RL gods are kind to him, and us.
That’s it for now. If there are any changes in the schedule, this post will be updated accordingly. Thank you again for your continued support, and let’s have a good season of gushing about anime together. Huzzah!
- 1/25: The animation may be wack, but the story more than makes up for it; Guardian Enzo will be covering Ajin!
