Spring Anime Recommendation 2017

Top picks from Spring this year. These anime aired last March 2017 to May 2017. Sort of like the second quarter of the year, I love Spring line up as well though normie life has been very busy on this season but still manage to see awesome series. 

1. Boku no Hero Academia 2nd Season /  僕のヒーローアカデミア 第二期 


Genre: Action, Shounen, Comedy, School

SummaryIzuku has dreamt of being a hero all his life—a lofty goal for anyone, but especially challenging for a kid with no superpowers. That’s right, in a world where eighty percent of the population has some kind of super-powered “quirk,” Izuku was unlucky enough to be born completely normal. But that’s not going to stop him from enrolling in one of the world’s most prestigious hero academies. Now, the only thing standing between him and his first class is the academy’s formidable entrance exam—nothing a little private tutoring from the world’s mightiest hero can’t solve.

My Reviews/Thoughts: Those who do not like this series is welcome to leave this page, nah, just joking. Glad that the season two aired. Everyone is so happy. 

2.  Shingeki no Kyojin Season 2 / 進撃の巨人 Season 2


Genre: Action, Drama, Fantasy, Shounen, Super Power


SummaryEren Jaeger swore to wipe out every last Titan, but in a battle for his life he wound up becoming the thing he hates most. With his new powers, he fights for humanity’s freedom facing the monsters that threaten his home. After a bittersweet victory against the Female Titan, Eren finds no time to rest—a horde of Titans is approaching Wall Rose and the battle for humanity continues!

My Review/Thoughts: Glad Eren and the gang is back on this time. I was so into the series that I re-read the manga again. Always keep me out of my wits.

My Review/Thoughts: This anime got me hooked on the first episode. I like how it was presented and transition for me is smooth.

4. Boruto: Naruto Next Generations


Genre: Action, Adventure, Martial Arts, Shounen, Supernatural

Summary: The Hidden Leaf Village has entered an era of peace and modernity. Tall buildings line the streets, giant screens flash with images, and the Thunder Rail runs through the village, connecting each district together. Though it's still a ninja village, the number of civilians has increased and the life of the shinobi is beginning to change. 

Boruto Uzumaki, son of Seventh Hokage Naruto Uzumaki, has enrolled in the Ninja Academy to learn the ways of the ninja. The other students are ready to dismiss him as "just the son of the Hokage,” but Boruto’s heart and character blow all their assumptions away. 
As a series of mysterious events begins to unfold, it’s up to Boruto and his new friends to handle them. Like a gale-force wind, Boruto makes his own way into everyone's hearts; his story is about to begin!

My Review/Thoughts: Imagine my happiness when it was announced about Boruto, as of right now, every episode is getting interesting, people might keep on comparing it to Boruto's Dad original series but Boruto has a unique touch. 

5. Eromanga-sensei / エロマンガ先生


Genre: Comedy, Drama, Romance

Summary: The "new sibling romantic comedy" revolves around Masamune Izumi, a light novel author in high school. Masamune's little sister is Sagiri, a shut-in girl who hasn't left her room for an entire year. She even forces her brother to make and bring her meals when she stomps the floor. Masamune wants his sister to leave her room because the two of them are each other's, only family.
Masamune's novel illustrator, pen name "Eromanga", draws extremely perverted drawings, and is very reliable. Masamune had never met his illustrator and figured he was just a disgusting, perverted otaku. However, the truth is revealed… that his "Eromanga-sensei" is his own younger sister! To add to the chaos that erupts between the siblings, a beautiful, female, best-selling shoujo manga creator becomes their rival!

My Review/Thoughts: One of my most unforgettable this season because the opening song is so lit! And I love Sagiri to bits. 

6. Fukumenkei Noise / 覆面系ノイズ

My Review/Thoughts: I have a love-hate relationship with this series especially when I was reading the manga. I hate third wheels or any love triangle. It just hurts so much but watching the anime is worth it. 

7. Kenka Banchou Otome: Girl Beats Boys / 喧嘩番長 乙女 -GIRL BEATS BOYS-


Genre: Romance, Shoujo 

Summary: Orphan heroine Hinako Nakayama suddenly reunites with her twin brother Hikaru, who asks her to take his place at Shishiku Academy, a private boys school infamous for its rough-and-tumble student body.

How will Hinako deal with a school full of handsome boys who let their fists do the talking rather than talk about their feelings?

My Review/Thoughts: I follow this short-form series because it's shoujo but the heroine is as bad ass as the heroes, my type of MC. 

8. Natsume Yuujinchou Roku / 夏目友人帳 陸


Genre: Drama, Fantasy, Shoujo, Slice of life, Supernatural

SummaryPrecious days with kind friends. A beautiful yet fleeting story about people and spirits.

Natsume continues to find ways to protect the precious days where he tries to find which path to follow through his connections with spirits and those involved with them and being helped out by friends who share the same feelings.

My Review/thoughts: One of my favorite anime of all time is Natsume Yuujichou. It's relaxing and tear-jerking at the same time. I love everything about it, from the story, flashback, how was it presented both the anime and manga, that's why my heart is just so full of love for Natsume when it got another season. 

9. Sagrada Reset / サクラダリセット

As members of the school's Service Club, Kei and Misora spend most of their time fulfilling clients' requests, all the while working together to undo the pains of the past.

My Review/Thoughts: I don't like the series at first, it was confusing but after every episode, it keeps getting better. I was just so curious at first because I can't find any source where to read it but, yeah, I just settled with the anime series.

My Reviews/Thoughts: WARNING! HARD SMUT / JUST A HAIR AWAY FROM HENTAI, joke, if you watch the uncensored that is. It was fun to watch, like duh, kids, leave this page if you think you are innocent but this series was a good short-form to watch if you like to find a smuttish series with love scenes and a concrete plot. 

11. Tsuki ga Kirei / 月がきれい


Genre: Romance, School 

Summary: It’s the third year of middle school. Kotaro, a bookish boy aspiring to become a novelist, and Akane, a track girl who loves to run, meet in the same class together for the first time. They’re put in charge of the equipment for the sports festival, and slowly grow closer via LINE. How does Kotaro deal with his growing feelings for her? 

Meanwhile, Takumi has been in love with Akane since the first year, and Akane’s friend, Chinatsu, becomes interested in Kotaro. 

A refreshing story of young love set in Kawagoe.

My Review/Thoughts: Definitely my silver bullet this season, the type of series you want to watch all over again, the type where you want to watch it if you feel so fucked up with your single life #ForeveAlone. I love how the characters and story is a bit straightforward and the animation is so lit!
