Summer 2016 Anime Preview 2.0:

Random Curiosity has its summer preview up (just in time), so now's a good time to take cognizance of the coming new gifts Japan has seen fit to provide the world:

First we have 8 continuing series:

Macross Delta 
Kyoukai no Rinne S2
Dragon Ball Super
Mahoutskai Pretty Cure  
Naruto Shippuden  
Re:  Zero Kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu  
Jojo's Bizarre Adventure - Diamond is Unbreakable 

Then we have sequels to known good shows:

Love Live! Sunshine
Tales of Zestiria the X
Fate/Kaleid Liner Prisma Illya 3rei

And new adaptions of known good sources:

New Game

Then there's promising new series:


And series that just maybe might be good so it's worth checking out the first episode:

Amamma to Inazuma
Taboo Tattoo
Mahou Shoujo? Naria Girls
Regalia: The Three Sacred Stars
Kono Bijutsubu ni wa Mondai ga Aru!
Nejimaki Seirei Senki:  Tenkyou no Alderamin
91 Days
Time Travel Shoujo - Mari Waka to 8-nin to Kagakusha-tachi -
Qualidea Code
Ange Vierge

Plus ova's and movies that will be coming out this summer stateside:

To Love-ru Darkness
Boruto - Naruto the Movie
Fairy Tail:  Mavis vs. Natsu
Durarara Ketsu
Kizumonogatari movie 1
Akatsuki no Yona
Dimension W

So a guaranteed floor of 16 hits, plus potential for 14 more shows, plus 9 movies or ova's to spice things up along the way.  It's also likely One Piece will return from filler sometime in here and add yet another show to the mix.  That's a pretty strong summer season.  Even with all this great anime being produced, my anime wishlist still has a 100 shows I wish they'd be doing instead, but since the whole world doesn't revolve around me I suppose this is the best I can expect.

Two new entries to my anime wishlist are the continuation of Sailor Moon Crystal and a remake of Rewrite that this time actually follows the source.  Before Rewrite even airs I'm already wishing for a new and better Rewrite.  I doubt I'll ever get my way on Rewrite (though Kanon was actually remade after the first one fell flat), but hopefully my wish for Sailor Moon Crystal will come true, sooner or later.
