Winter 2017 Anime Preview:

It's basically December, which means we're just one month away from the new anime season.  What is there to look forward to this time around, in the bright new dawn of 2017?

Immortal Shows:

One Piece
Pretty Cure
Dragon Ball

Sequels to known good works:

Rewrite 2nd Season
Konosuba 2
Tales of Zestiria the X 2nd cour

Series that are at least worth checking out:

Demi-chan wa Kataritai
Gabriel Dropout
Granblue Fantasy the Animation
Hand Shakers
Kemono Friends
Kobayashi-san Chi no Maidragon
Kuzu no Honkai
Little Witch Academia
Masamune-kun no Revenge
Minami Kamakura Koukou Joshi Jitensha-bu
Piace:  Watashi no Italian
Schoolgirl Strikers
Urara Meirochou
Youjou Senki
One Room

If even one new show works out that will be as large a viewing schedule as the current fall lineup.  Then again, all nine shows currently airing are great anime, whereas Konosuba and Chaos;Child are only good anime, so we could easily see a large dip in overall quality from this fall to next winter.  That's okay, 2016 was an exceptionally good year in anime, we shouldn't be expecting 2017 to match it.  So long as 2017 provides something of worth each season, it will have done enough to keep the industry rolling.
