Welcome to our Summer 2016 review schedule! Last year, we checked out 25 shows, sticking with 19 of them to completion. It was a pretty good season, featuring gems like Prison School, Gakkou Gurashi, Ore Monogatari!!, Charlotte, Shokugeki no Souma, and OverLord.
But this Summer has its fair share of strong offerings—including what Preston considers one of the most powerful episodes she’s ever seen.
This year we’re sticking with around fifteen shows from a field of ~25, while Kuromukuro’s second cour is on hiatus until further notice, and ReLIFE is all done. Those shows, and the day we’ll usually review them, are listed below.
A reminder, the schedule below is an ideal that we strive to achieve. Time constraints, media availability, vacations, and other factors will sometimes result in our straying from that ideal, but hopefully infrequently.
Shows marked with an asterisk (*) are those that we are still evaluating. Check marks (✔) are author’s top picks.
