Winter Anime Recommendations 2017

February 3, 2017

I can’t believe it’s already twenty seventeen. New Year, new season, new anime series to look up to and I am back for my personal picks this winter season! It’s been awhile since I posted a recommendation post. Anyhow, just a disclaimer, not a critic, my aim is to give out my honest review with the chosen anime I followed. There are actually a lot of good titles this season. However, I need to prioritize and this list is what I came up with.

1.  Ao no Exorcist: Kyoto Fujouou Hen


Genre:  Action, Demons, Supernatural, Fantasy, Shounen

My ReviewThoughts: The second season as well of one of my favorite shounen anime out there, the plot is just awesome because our main hero is half demon half human, not only an ordinary demon but a son of Satan.

The first season was released six years ago (I feel so old again) so this is also the perfect time to get to know this series. You can watch from season 1, episode one to 15 and watch the season 2  right away, swear! The manga is still ongoing up to this date.

2. Fuuka

Synopsis: Yuu, a transfer student, is a shy young man. He can’t take his hands of his smartphone, because he’s always checking Twitter! Fuuka, a girl who goes at her own pace and is a bit all over the place but still draws people to her, doesn’t have a mobile phone. Koyuki, Yuu’s childhood friend and a popular singer, reconnects with Yuu on Twitter. A love that starts because there’s signal, and a love that starts because there’s no signal. In the middle of summer, a love triangle begins!!

Genres: Music, Drama, Romance, Ecchi, School, Shounen
My Reviews/Thoughts: If you want some romance and harem feels this one is pasok sa banga! But if youa re the type who really dislikes love triangle then this is not for you. The music and the art is promising, plus I haven’t read the manga yet so I’m looking forward on what ship will sail :))
3. Gabriel Drop Out
 Synopsis:  Chief Angel has come to Earth! However, she became so used to the life on Earth that she skips school and keeps playing online games, thus into self-destruction. It’s a school comedy that Gabriel turns into a lazy angel!
Genres:Comedy, Supernatural, School, Shounen
 My Reviews/Thoughts: Now, if we have Ao no Exorcist second season which involves demons, this one is a funny series in which Gabriel a very diligent angel on mission here on Earth was distracted because of video games. I swear, this is a LOL anime, we have a Gabriel in us!
4. Kuzu no Honkai

Synopsis:  To the outside world, Hanabi Yasuraoka and Mugi Awaya are the perfect couple. But in reality, they just share the same secret pain: they are both in love with other people they cannot be with.

Hanabi has loved her childhood friend and neighbor Narumi Kanai for as long as she can remember, so she is elated to discover that he is her new homeroom teacher. However, Narumi is soon noticed by the music teacher, Akane Minagawa, and a relationship begins to blossom between them, much to Hanabi’s dismay.

Mugi was tutored by Akane in middle school, and has been in love with her since then. Through a chance meeting in the hallway, he encounters Hanabi. As these two lonely souls spend more time together, they decide to use each other as a substitute for the one they truly love, sharing physical intimacy with one another in order to stave off their loneliness.

 Genres: Drama, Romance, School, Seinen
My Reviews/Thoughts: Kurot sa puso, puno ng hugot anime. Warning, smut and very R18 for me, not for the faint hearted, there’s Yuri and love scenes, it’s not really suitable for kids and some scened are really heavy. Infairness with the animation, thumbs up!
5. Masamune-kun no Revenge

Synopsis: As a child, Masamune Makabe once suffered greatly at the hands of a wealthy and beautiful girl named Aki Adagaki, who nicknamed him “Piggy” due to his chubby appearance. Seeking revenge against his tormentor, Masamune works hard to improve himself and returns as an incredibly handsome, albeit narcissistic, high school student. When he encounters Aki once again, he is prepared to exact vengeance.

With the aid of the rich girl’s maid, Yoshino Koiwai, Masamune slowly begins to build his relationship with Aki, intending to break her heart when the time is right. However, as his friendship with Aki begins to grow, Masamune starts to question the objectives of his devious plans, and if bringing them to fruition is what his heart truly desires.

 Genres: Harem, Comedy, Romance, School, Shounen
 My Reviews/Thoughts: When this series is not yet an aired this used to be my funny pill, the manga is just hilarious. Well, the  anime is awesome as well but I highly recommend to read the manga. It’s the “you’ve hurted I will revenge you” cheness, but there’s still a hint of harem so yeah.

So, that’s it for now. I might add soon if I have the time to watch the other titles. If you have to recommend an anime this season that is not on my list, what is it and why? Feel free to use the comment section below 🙂
