This season may very well be the season to entice ladies to watch anime. After all, who wouldn’t be charmed by the anthropomorphic handsome guys of the month in “Tsukiuta”? And who wouldn’t want to be saved by the gallant fighters in Scared Rider XechS and magical school boys in “Binan Koukou Chikyuu Boueibu Love! Love!”? And how about being cheered on by the guys in Cheer Danshi, and be serenaded by the guys in B-PROJECT: Kodou＊Ambitious. Of course, we’re not forgetting about the guys who will also share some kick-ass action once Mob Psycho 100 , Taboo Tatoo , Qualidea Code, and 91 Days premiere. Finally, how can we forget about the highly anticipated anime this season, the premiere of Love Live! Sunshine!! on 2 Jul 2016.
Well, this season is also the season where we will see more of Hanae Natsuki who is set to appear again on Shokugeki no Soma: Ni no Sara as Takumi Aldini , and in Arslan Senki: Fuujin Ranbu as Elam. He will also be in D.GrayMan Hallow (Lavi), B-PROJECT: Kodou＊Ambitious(Yuuta Ashuu), and Saiki Kusuo no Ψ Nan(Reita Toritsuka). Let’s not forget that Hanae will also be having his anisong debut when he sings the theme song for Saiki Kusuo no Ψ Nan.
To give you a taste of summer, we bring you the shows that we are anticipating to watch:
Date Airing: 9 Jul 2016
Stars: Takuchi Eguya, Takashi Kondou, Daisuke Ono, Yuichi Nakamura, Takahiro Sakurai, Kenjirou Tsuda
As they say no one is above the law, but that’s not the case in the Lawless district. This district is ruled by the iron-clad families of the mafia. Avilio(CV:Takashi Kondou), who once had a brushed with the mafia, went into exile when his family was killed. Now, Avilio is plotting his revenge and tries to infiltrate the powerful Vanetti family to get close to its leader, Nero (CV:Takuchi Eguya). He will use any means and ways to get down to the truth of what happened to his family.
Why would I watch this: If you are looking for some mafia and gangster type of drama, then this is the series for you. Set in the 1920s, this series will take us back to the Roaring Twenties – back to that time of lawlessness and the time where most of the people bear arms to kill each other. This is a fight of survival.
Watch this if you like : Gangsta. , Katekyo Hitman Reborn ( if you’ll looked it as an M18 version), Bungou Stray Dogs ( well, if this doesn’t sound like the Port Mafia..) , The Godfather, The Sopranos

Fukigen na Mononokean
Date Airing: 28 Jun 2016
Stars: Yuki Kaji, Tomoaki Maeno, Junichi Suwabe
What would you do if you have a persistent youkai stuck to you? Do you go to the doctor and let him examine you? Do you go to your priest and have him exorcise it? That’s not the case for Ashiya (CV:Yuki Kaji), he was caught in a most unfortunate event of having a youkai stuck on him on his first day of school. He had to spend his first week of new school term in the school’s infirmary. Tough luck! Well, lucky for him, there is a specialized tea house that helps poor hapless fella like Ashiya to get rid of the youkai. Welcome to the “Mononokean”, your one stop shop to youkai exorcism!
Why would I watch this : What could go wrong with a morose owner like Abeno (CV:Tomoaki Maeno) managing the “Mononokean” ? He’s the only one in town who can guide the youkai to the next world, yet you have to bear with his sullen, ill-tempered nature. Good luck to the youkai and good luck to the people who are engaging his service!

Saiki Kusuo no Ψ Nan
Date Airing: 4 Jul 2016
Stars: Daisuke Ono, Hiroshi Kamiya, Nobunaga Shimazaki
Summary: Kusuo Saiki (CV:Hiroshi Kamiya) is a psychic. When he was a child, he once caught the attention of everyone when he managed to win in every janken match. It was traumatic for him that he swore not to use his powers again. Kusou Saiki is now a high school sophomore. With all the hijinks around him, can he still not resist and use his powers in the name of some harmless, teenage fun.
Why would I watch this: This series is a surefire way to tickle your funny bones with all the wacky characters that Kusou meets along the way. There’s never a dull moment in the life of Kusuo who only just wanted to graduate high school peacefully. Who says life in high school ain’t that fun? Well, not with Kusou and his seemingly convenient supernatural powers! Can’t wait to watch more from this series!
