Late Night Summer 2017 Series

Of the 50-plus anime series that air each season, so-called late night shows, which typically air well past midnight, are a special breed: because they’re on so late, far from the eyes of youngsters, they typically feature more of the sex, violence and pure weirdness that has made anime famous around the world as “not kids’ stuff.”

The summer 2017 season just wrapped up, and ranking site Goo has polled its readers about their favorite late night anime of said season.
