Summer 2015 Anime Watching List

Time does fly. Summer 2015 is here! I still have tons of anime to catch up, but I have checked the upcoming anime list to see if there is anything interesting as well. Excluding the Spring 2015 leftovers, here are the anime series I am going to watch.
  1. Charlotte. Despite been avoiding school themes, I am always looking forward to see the latest P.A. Works’ anime. Considering the similarity of elements involved in this anime (school, supernatural, a group of friends), I hope it will be much more enjoyable than Glasslip, though. Glasslip was quite a fail, although Jonathan did help to keep me entertained.
  2. Aoharu x Kikanjuu. Probably will involve a lot of bishounens. Apparently it has something to do with survival games and… ero manga? I hope that it will not be yet another cheesy series that only serves eye candies for bishounen-loving audience though. And more about survival games than ero manga. 
  3. Chaos Dragon: Sekiryuu Senyaku. The base of this anime sounds interesting, which is a story created by 5 notable figures in anime industry including Gen Urobuchi and Narita Ryohgo. Will the anime be interesting as well? I would give this a try. 
  4. Durarara!!x2 Ten. Definitely a must watch. I am curious to see what happened to Izaya. Anyway, the seika-hen arc of the manga is going to be published in Indonesia.
  5. Gangsta. Finally, a seinen story to watch this season! I have pretty high expectation from this series, let’s see whether it will live up to the expectation or not.
  6. God Eater. I am always skeptical on anime that are adapted from games. I hope I can still get what will going on in this anime, though, despite that I have not played the game yet. Anyway, I joked on how Zapp from Kekkai Sensen will appear in this series after I watched the trailer, as there is one character that looks like him a lot. I heard Zapp’s voice as well, though I am not sure whether it came from that Zapp-lookalike character or not. Someone on twitter said that it did?
  7. Working!!! I intend to watch the previous seasons before starting to watch this one. 
  8. Hetalia: The World Twinkle. I did not notice that the new season of Hetalia is coming! I kind of disappointed that Hetalia: The Beautiful World was only 20 episodes long. Though I enjoyed the latest season, I admit I did not enjoy it as much as the first season. Besides the hilarious parody, I enjoy this series because I recalled a lot of things I learned at university in this anime (I studied International Relations).
  9. Arslan Senki. One of the leftovers from the previous season that I still watch. Up to this day, I have not watched its classic OVA as intended.
  10. Ore Monogatari!! Another leftover from the previous season. I usually watch this with my boyfriend every weekend. I really like this kind of shoujo romance with uncommon male protagonist. I have been avoiding shoujo anime these past years (I read Kamisama Hajimemashita and Ookami Shoujo to Kuro Ouji but skipped the anime), but I cannot miss this one. 
As seen from the list above, there is 10 series I am going to watch this season. This may be the smallest number of anime I’m watching in the past 1-2 years. Which is not bad, actually, because that also means I have more time to catch up everything else. I still have to catch up some anime from the previous season

What are you looking forward to watch this season?


  1. Wootttt i LOVE aoharu x kikanjuu and it's only been 2 episodes. And so far i'm also enjoying Gangsta. The mc is deaf and I have never seen anything like that before. I really like arslan senki as well! There is a lot of political talks and strategies and moral discussion - it's pretty thought-provoking overall but i still think fullmetal alchemist is THE best xD

    1. I've already gotten Aoharu x Kikanjuu on my catch up folder, but haven't watched it yet. I'm so looking forward to catch up a lot of anime in the upcoming Eid holidays. And yeah, Gangsta's Nicolas is so cool!! My boyfriend kept recommending me Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood, but I haven't managed to watch that yet. It's in my to-watch list though xD I feel dying, waiting for God Eater's delayed premiere (and Kekkai Sensen's delayed finale).
