Summer 2016 Anime Season Preview [TV Shorts]

The first episode of this was superb. The banana is an adorable cat, what more could we ask for? – Jordan

Bananya looks positively insane or charming whichever way you want to look at it. I’ll probably give it a watch seeing us it won’t take up to much of my time. – Nick

The Highschool Life of a Fudanshi

Jul 5, 2016 | EMT² | Manga | Comedy, School, Shoujo, Slice of Life

This sounded like it was crazy enough to be a good laugh; the first episode proved that theory. The best part? He’s not even interested in men that way. – Jordan

I’m probably not the target audience for this show but it seems interesting enough that I might try out an episode or two. – Nick

Onara Gorou
Fart Gorou

Jul 3, 2016 | ILCA | Original | Comedy

Onara Gorou actually does seem to sit on the insane scale a little too firmly and I really want it to be picked up by a streaming service – I need to know what the hell is going in here! – Nick

The first episode was decent. I don’t tend to drop shorts, so I’ll stick with it. – Jordan

Ozmafia has some really nice animation and that’s about all I can say until I give it a try. – Nick

This is an interesting one. Shorts over the week which are then compiled into a standard episode. I’ll give it a try when a full week’s shorts have aired. – Jordan

I remember trying the manga of Saiki when it was starting been published in Weekly Shonen Jump and I didn’t get on with it. I’ll be waiting to see how well received it is before I make any decisions about jumping in. – Nick
