I didn't know that. Ghost Hunt was pretty decent.

yup

and both ghost hunt and twelve kingdoms have books not covered in the anime. I think shiki was mostly covered though.,

Man...so many seasons are ending with huge loose ends and are completely open-ended. It's really bizarre. That being said, I think without a doubt Hinamatsuri is my favorite show of the season. I really hope we get another season. I think Megalobox is my distant second. A whole bunch are tied for 3rd.

 

Rest are follow-on seasons. Of the follow-ons, I think MHA is the most improved. Went from what felt like a lame cookie-cutter show, to something with substance. FMP is probably my next favorite follow-on season with Card Captor Sakura being right behind. Black Clover is finally starting to have some depth to it and is becoming something I look forward to watching.

 

July comes soon with some big new seasons of Overlord and AoT! Other upcoming shows look like garbage on a quick scan, but curious if anyone knows of something else worth watching during the summer months?

A few series while I wait for the current season to finish (I don't start a series until it's done airing, BNHA being the current exception):

 

Girls' Last Tour - Excellent! It's tragic yet still somehow a sol series. I'm too afraid to turn to the manga to read the rest of the story... I heard it gets increasingly grim ;_;
Masamune-kun no Revenge - An ok watch. The main characters have some personality flaws that make them hard to like. I look forward to the second season airing in July.
Sakura Quest - Pretty good. Good setting, ok cast, decent character progression. Not the most interesting of stories, but worth a watch if you want something laid back.
Soul Eater Not - This could have been good given the greatness of Soul Eater's setting, but this is barely passable. Not much story, little to no character progression, and unnecessary fan service. Skip this and just rewatch the original Soul Eater.

I have 2 episodes of Hinamatsuri left. I'm going to finish it up tonight probably. 

 

This seasons favs are:

 

Golden Kamuy - I love the time setting. Post Russo - Japanese war set in Hokido with native Japanese Ainu people. It really throws you into the setting and culture of the Ainu. I love these time piece shows. I wasn't a big fan of the art. Kinda plain and lazy for a gritty story. I did appreciate the humor. Asiripa is the best. I'm all for strong young female leads. It's awesome that she's Sugimotot's anchor and without her he would have been dead several times already.

 

Megalobox, Food Porn, Yowapeda, SAO GGO, Gundam Build Drivers, and Lupin Part 5 have all been a joy to watch.

 

So I'm relying on you guys to give me good recommendations for the Summer season. Don't let me down,

Glad someone else enjoyed this. I agree, it was a little slow at times and not  the most exciting story. But it's charming and a good laid back chill show.  The mayor is my favorite character. Just a ruff and gruff softy. All bark, no bait.

I caught up to the Boku no Hero anime and manga.

 

Now I have to wait. :(

Yep, this season's wrapping up this week. I think tonight will be my wrap up night with Golden Kamuy, Hinamatsuri,  MHA. and Yowapeda if I can get through all four.

 

I think Food Wars wrapped up this season last Sunday so I'm done with that.

 

I think Crossing Time finished. I was waiting till it to get done with then binge everything in a night. I mean each episode is only like 3 minutes long. Didn't make much sense to watch it week to week. I could finish the entire season in 30-40 minutes.

I've never seen Madoka, so that reference is lost on me :( I did see the last episode of the GGO spin-off tho, have to say I really enjoyed that show! Nothing amazing, but very enjoyable. Worthy of a side-story!

Watched Pop Team Epic Episode 1.

 

Ummmm .... well the video game references were funny. Everything else was too random and forced that I decided to turn it off during "Round 2".  It felt like I was watching a lazy version of Excel Saga mixed with everything I hated in Shin Chan.

What should I be watching this season CAG?

 

I will be returning too: AoT, Overlord, Gintama, One Piece, Persona 5, Black Clover, MHA & Stiens Gate and I will definitely check out the Kaiji spin-off and new FLCL

 

Besides that I'm unfamiliar with all the new shows.

I'm in the same boat and would welcome any suggestions.

Is Hanebado that badminton anime we saw a preview of awhile back, or is it a different one?

Cells at Work sounds interesting, and High Score Girl being set in 1991 and initially involving SFII is enough for me to give it an episode or two.

Oh those, which can I throw away due to dubious plot/T&A focus? :P

Yes, it is the Badminton anime.

Some Isekais can work. Knights and Magic is pretty good.

Of the upcoming Isekais, Arifureta, Tate no Yuusha, and Slime-san are my most looked forward to. Also, Overlord is technically an Isekai

Then my list is definitely Overlord, MHA, Hanebado, and Cells at Work. Other shows to be decided upon later.

The badminton anime reminds me of Saki for some reason. Less loli, and more boobs though.

Oh god, yeah that was horrible. I'm really stoked for Overlord. Not happy that it's short on episodes again.

Years ago I'd say an anime about badminton sounds lame. But I gave cycling, volleyball and ping pong a chance and they're all awesome. No reason why this can't be as fun.

 

A lot of those sounds interesting. I'll be coming back to these pages for reference once summer hits week 2.

I never did watch the ballroom dancing one. But male figure skating was a good one I left out.

Really missing out on the ballroom dancing one...I recommended that to a buddy of mine recently.
