Spring is almost over, and the summer season is about to begin! After taking a look at the new anime coming into Summer 2017, we now continue our look into the upcoming season with the returning anime, sequels, spin-offs, or reboots. Unlike our New Anime picks, we all agreed for our picks for the returning anime. We only picked five, but then again, we must admit that our five picks are really obvious choices. Our picks are:
Synopsis: Part of the Monogatari series’ final season, the anime comes into summer with plenty of hype. It continues the story of Koyomi Araragi and the girls around him.
Synopsis: The setting is a parallel world to Fate/stay night where the Greater Grail mysteriously disappeared from Fuyuki after the Third Holy Grail War. After many years of silence, around the same time as the Fifth Holy Grail War would have happened, the Yggdmillennia, a family of magi, openly declares their secession from the Mage’s Association, and that they are in possession of the Grail. The Association dispatches fifty magi to retrieve it, and all but one are instantly slaughtered by a mysterious Servant. The one remaining manages to activate the reserve system of the Greater Grail, allowing for the summoning of fourteen Servants in total.
In the city of Trifas, two factions will fight for the control of the sacred relic, each of them possessing their own team of seven Servants : the Black Faction whose members are part of Yggdmillennia, protecting the Grail, and the Red Faction whose members were sent by the Mage’s Association, trying to take the Grail back. For an event of this scale, the Grail itself summons its own Servant, the holy Ruler, to oversee the conflict.
This marks the start of the Great Holy Grail War.
Synopsis: The story picks up from where the first season went off, and continues the story about an anime about making video games, focusing on Aoba and her coworkers at Eagle Jump.
Synopsis: Not to be confused with Touken Ranbu Hanamaru, and is actually by ufotable.
The year is 1863 as the tumultuous samurai era is coming to an end, Japan is split between the pro-shogunate and anti-shogunate factions. The fate of the world is threatened as an army of historical revisionists are sent from the future to alter the course of history. In order to bring these forces down and protect the real history, two sword warriors, spirits who are swords brought to life by Saniwa (sage), rush to Edo. The polite and thoughtful Horikawa Kunihiro and the short tempered yet skillful Izuminokami Kanesada, who served the same master, confront the invading army along with a lively gang of other warriors including Mutsunokami Yoshiyuki, Yagen Toushirou, Tombokiri, and Tsurumaru Kuninaga.
As the fate of history lies in these hero’s hands, what meets the blade is yet to be uncovered…
Hell Girl: Yoi no Togi
Synopsis: The story of Ai Enma, the legendary Hell Girl, continues into its fourth season, as she and her minions continue their mission of enacting vengeance for people who used the Hell Correspondence.
