Fall is one of the best times of the year, and not just because of the pleasant and mild weather. With it comes the new season of anime. Looking through the upcoming anime listing, there is some nice variety. Naturally, the season is bringing plenty of fanservice focused anime, the prominent one seeming to be Keijo!!!!!!!! I personally will probably not watch it, but here are the anime I will be checking out. My 5 recommended anime coming this fall!
Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru
My main draw to this anime is the fantasy/sci-fi premise that it presents. The plot description is not overly clear, but it seems to involve time travel and stopping the antagonists from changing history. I like the character designs, and seeing as how one of my main draws to try a show involves the animation and an interesting plot premise, there is a strong chance I’ll stick with this anime.
Udon no Kuni no Kiniro Kemari
I was immediately intrigued by the premise of this anime, which will be a slice of life anime. It revolves around the main character quitting his job to take care of a young boy whose secret is discovered by the protagonist. The other draw of the show for me is that it appears to have a rural setting, something somewhat uncommon in anime. I just hope this slice of life turns out better than Sweetness and Lightning from this past season for me.
Next up is another slice of life, though I am much more familiar with this series. The Working series of anime is a really easy and fun watch, so if you have not seen any yet, I recommend you check out the first season. Nonetheless, this new Working anime is set in a different restaurant with different characters than the original. It’s up in the air whether I like this one better or not.
Fune wo Amu
Another anime with an interesting premise, this time apparently about composing a dictionary. I am a huge word nerd, loving writing in my free time. So the premise of immediately appealed to me, though it sounds like an anime that could easily be very boring or niche.
While most of the anime on this list are here because of a “unique” premise, Nanbaka is the exception. It looks colorful and fun. While it maybe looks reminiscent of Prison School, I am sure this anime will be very different. Easily the wild card anime of the season.
In conclusion, the Fall 2016 anime season possesses an interesting line up. What anime are you interested in seeing this coming season? Be sure to comment below!
