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
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.
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!!
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.
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.
