Summer 2016 Preview!

Summer is in the air, and it’s a time of change. Or at least it is for some people. You know what’s not changing? Anime, and the previewing thereof. We’ve got some big-name shows returning with sequels, including the cooking battle mega-hit Shokugeki no Souma, the sword-and-horses warfare of Arslan Senki, and the by-now-traditional new season of Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya. Not to be left out, several popular properties are getting their first shot at adaptation, including the breathlessly awaited drama orange, a science trip back to high school with ReLife, the next big Key visual novel adaptation in Rewrite, and not one but two DANGANRONPA series. A few popular authors are getting anime for their newer works, including a healing/diving anime from the ARIA author, Amanchu!, and the next offering from One-Punch Man’s author in Mob Psycho 100. Sports anime fans will be especially pleased with Battery and DAYS on the docket, and though original series are thin on the ground this summer, at least the Prohibition-era thriller 91Days and the new era of school idols in Love Live! Sunshine!! are looking promising. No, that’s not sweat you’re dripping with, it’s anticipation for these new anime. This is Random Curiosity’s Summer 2016 Preview.

07/05: Added over 30 new promotional videos!

Re: Zero Kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu – 13

「自称騎士ナツキ・スバル」 (Jishou Kishi Natsuki Subaru)
“Self-Proclaimed Knight Natsuki Subaru”

I’ve defended Subaru quite a bit over the past few months when viewers would bash him for being annoying or self-centered… but this episode takes the icing on the cake.

Macross Δ – 13

「激情 ダイビング」 (Gekijo Daibingu)
“Passionate Diving”

Nothing like an epic battle to give a climactic end to what should be Δ’s first half.

Bungou Stray Dogs – 11, 12

「其の一 彼女に向かない/職業 其の二 有頂天探偵社 / たえまなく過去へ押し戻されながら」 (Sono Ichi: Kanojo ni Mukanai Shokugyou / Sono Ni: Uchouten Tanteisha / Taemanaku Kako e Oshimodosare nagara)
“First, an Unsuitable Profession for Her / Second, an Ecstatic Detective Agency” / “Borne Back Ceaselessly into the Past”

Apologies for the delay on Bungou Stray Dogs! I know this post is incredibly late but there’s still a second cour coming this fall! And I really hope it takes advantage of the fact that it spent the last two episodes of this season introducing new gangs and characters.

Kiznaiver – 12 (END)

「世界中にキズナシステムが広がって」 (Sekaijuu ni Kizuna System ga Hirogatte)
“If The Kizna System Spread Throughout The World”

Narratively inconsistent. Thematically consistent.

Hai-Furi – 12 (END)

「ラストバトルでピンチ!」 (Rasuto Batoru de Pinchi! )

Koutetsujou no Kabaneri – 11

「燃える命」 (Semejougu Jakusha)
“Burning Life”

There’s plenty of evil to go around here, but the question is who is the most evil of all? The mindless kabane, the corrupt Shogun, or the vengeful liberator?
