Summer 2016’s Ten Most Anticipated Anime, Ranked

Barbecues. Pool parties. Fireworks. Family road trips. New anime.

Summer is coming.

As the spring 2016 season comes in for a landing (feels like it just started, man), anticipation is building on both sides of the Pacific for the summer 2016 anime lineup, which is packed with sequels, original series and even a reboot or two for good measure.

But what series are Japanese fans most anticipating? Pollsters Charapedia had the good sense to ask ‘em.

10. Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope’s Peak Academy


8. Handa-kun

7. The Seven Deadly Sins: Signs of holy war

6. D. Gray-man Hallow

5. Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya 3rei!

4. Heroic Legend of Arslan: Dust Storm Dance

3. Saiki Kusuo no Psi-nan

2. Shokugeki no Soma: The Second Plate (Food Wars season 2)

1. Love Live! Sunshine!!

Okay guys: how’s this list? What’s missing? Personally, I am shocked – shocked – by the exclusion of the Puzzles and Dragons anime. For shame.
