This week for Anime Sunday I’m looking forward to so many new things in this upcoming season! Find out what’s my Most Anticipated Spring 2016 Anime!

Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu: This is a light novel series that I’ve heard is really good and I hear that this should be a 2 cour, which if true will be amazing and I know for a fact that the first episode will be an hour long. So this is definitely the top of my list of the season, but the rest of my list should be just as interesting. Hopefully!

Boku no Hero Academia: I wrote about this series back in 2014 and I commented that it was only a matter of time before this series got an Anime adaptation. I wasn’t wrong! Hopefully it lives up to the Manga, because it’s pretty freaking epic.  This is pretty close to ReZero for my personal expectations and I’m hoping that this is a good adaptation, especially since the author was once one of Oda’s assistants.

Netoge no Yome wa Onnanoko ja Nai to Omotta?: This is another Light Novel adaptation, and hopefully it’ll be as good as ReZero, but if not I’m not going to be as disappointed. It’ll be more comedic so I’m not as thrilled about this, but I’ve heard good things about this series too, so I’ll give it a shot.

Gundam Unicorn: The Movie series recut and redone for TV, it’ll include a bit of new footage and new music by Aimer. So I’m really looking forward to this series, if only for the musical scores.

Kiznaiver: This is made by the studio that brought us classics like Gurren Lagann and Kill la Kill. I don’t generally like their stuff, but their animation has always been top notch so I’ll give this series a shot, hopefully it’ll be a bit more serious and less slapstick.

Sousei no Onmyouji: Another Manga adaptation, this is one of my lesser anticipated series, but I’m still hoping it’ll turn out good.

Honorable Mentions: I’ll watch at least one episode of the following series for sure, but I make no promises on whether I’ll bother with even posting about them.

Endride: I’ve not heard much about it, but the synopsis from the chart I used to help make this post was interesting.

Hundred: Another Light Novel Adaptation, this looks to be one of those magicial academy series that seem to get stuck on the rom-com route way too often. If it goes the way of Rakudai I’ll be thrilled and probably singing it’s praises by the end of the season, but I doubt that.

Sakamoto Desu Ga?: Apparently the Manga this will be adapted from is hilarious, but it’s being animated by Studio Deen and if you’re a frequent reader of this column you’ll know that I hate that studio with a passion. Still I’ll give it a shot, but I’m not expecting much from a studio that could make the most gorgeous person in the world look like a pile of dung.
