Summer 2019 – Upcoming Anime

Hi guys! With the Summer season fast approaching, I thought I’d compile the usual list of upcoming anime. There will be no leftover or returning shows in the list and as always, this is not a list of shows that I’m watching. Rather, it’s a list of shows that are coming out. As always, all the synopsis are from Livechart.

Araburu Kisetsu no Otome-domo yo coverAraburu Kisetsu no Otome-domo yo.

The girls in a high school literature club do a little icebreaker to get to know each other: answering the question, “What’s one thing you want to do before you die?” One of the girls blurts out, “Sex.” Little do they know, the whirlwind unleashed by that word pushes each of these girls, with different backgrounds and personalities, onto their own clumsy, funny, painful, and emotional paths toward adulthood.

They’re treated like heroes and tasked with the duty of saving the human race from utter extinction. But what should have been any otaku’s wet dream quickly turns into Hajime’s nightmare. While the rest of his class are blessed with godlike powers, Hajime’s job, Synergist, only has a single transmutation skill.

The detectives who stand up to these heinous crimes are in the San Teresa City Police. When the detective Kei Matoba and the alternate-world knight Tirana — two individuals who differ in gender, personality, and even world of origin — meet, an incident erupts. Two worlds. Two justices. From this, the curtain rises on a buddy police action story!

The team is about to get a very unique addition: Shinra, a boy who possesses the unique power to run at the speed of a rocket, leaving behind the famous “devil’s footprints” (and destroying his shoes in the process). Can the Fire Force discover the source of this strange phenomenon and put a stop to it? Or will the city burn to ashes first?

  1. Most curious about Kanata no Astra. The story sounds intesting, and it’s the director of School Live, White Album 2 and Hakumei to Mikochi, all of which I liked a lot.

    Araburu Kisetsu no Otome-domo yo could be great. I liked most anime where Masahiro Ando and Mari Okada worked together at least a little, and Hanasaku Iroha was downright great. The story is pure Okada (the manga’s story is hers to begin with), and that can be both good and bad, since she can drop down too deep into the well of melodrama, but when she doesn’t it can be downright great, and I don’t want to miss the chance.

    And then there’s Dr. Stone: the concept is great, and I’m curious how that works out in a Shounen Jump show. Also the colours on the promo art are very pretty. I hope there isn’t too much 3D CGI in the environment.

    I’ll try most of it, as usual, but those are the shows that I’m most interested in.
