After taking a look at the new anime we’re most excited about next season, we now take a look at Fall 2017’s returnees. In other words, this latest SGCafe List will take a look at the new seasons and spin-offs coming up this October. And since there are a lot of new returning anime (and boy there are a lot of them!), we’ve decided to name 11 since we really can’t make up our minds. We did leave out a few huge titles for the list, but it’s mostly to make room for some new sequels or spin-offs you may not have even heard about. So Love Livers and [email protected] fans, sorry in advance. And without further ado, here are our picks:

Blood Blockade Battlefront & Beyond

We loved the first season, and we pretty much missed Libra. Expect plenty of action as Klaus and the rest of Libra defend Salen’s Lot from its evil denizens.

Food Wars: Shokugeki No Soma San no Sara

Come on, Shokugeki no Soma is coming in with a ton of hype, and everyone knows it. The only the we can add is just prepare to become hungry every episode.

March Comes in Like a Lion Season 2

The life and struggles of Rei Kiriyama continues in this critically acclaimed series, so prepare for plenty of drama, and lots of Shogi… and CATS!

Himouto! Umaru-chan R

She’s Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack! The ever-“himouto” little sister herself, Umaru Douma, is back to bring trouble to her long-suffering older brother. Oh, and her friends are returning too.


Is there any reason not to watch this sixth season of 4th-wall breaking madness known as Gintama?

Mr. Osomatsu 2

This one promises even more sibling mayhem, as well as plenty of laughs. Expect the sextuplets to once again tickle your funny bones like they did for the first season.

UQ Holder!: Mahou Sensei Negima! 2

If you loved the original Mahou Sensei Negima anime, or even its remake, then you might love this one too. TBut this time, it won’t focus on Negi Springfield, but on Evangeline Athanasia Katherine McDowell’s student, Touta Konoe.

Hoozuki’s Coolheadedness Season 2

Looks like we’re not going to run out of comedies next season, because the denizens of hell are also going to make us laugh out loud. We couldn’t stop laughing with the original one, and we’re certainly looking forward to laugh out loud even more with this one.

Infini-T Force

Think of this as the Avengers or Justice League for anime from Tatsunoko Productions. This crossover anime will feature classic anime heroes from Tekkaman, Casshern, Gatchaman, and Hurricane Polymar, so it’s really worth checking out.

Wake Up, Girls! Shin Shou

While we purposely didn’t include Love Live! Sunshine!! S2 and The [email protected] Side-M, we thought Wake Up Girls should be included in our list. Forever living in the shadows of the other two “Big 3 idol anime” members, it’s safe to say the members of WUG may be able to pull off an upset this season.

Ancient Magus’s Bride

The anime comes as a continuation to the previously-released OVAs, so it definitely counts as a sequel. And yes, we loved those OVAs and want more too!

So there you have it, our picks for the anime sequels and spin-offs to watch out for this Fall 2017. Anyway, did you guys agree with our picks? What anime did you guys think would stand out next season?
