Their mission is still the same: kill their alien teacher who blew up the moon and threatens to do the same to planet earth.

If you haven’t watched it yet, you still have time to get into the show just in time for the second season.

School stories are always fun to watch, but some of you might be looking for something with more action and fighting scenes. I have just the right show for you: Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash.
It’s an adventure stories that is set in the fantastic world of Grimgar. Our hero finds himself thrown into this universe without any recollection of his past life or how he got there. He is not the only one; everyone around him only seems to be able to remember their own names as well. Together they embark on an adventure that is unlike anything they have experienced before. How will their story end?

Akagami no Shirayuki-hime 2nd Season (Snow White with the Red Hair 2nd season)
For those of you that don’t know, this anime is set in a fictive kingdom called Tanbarun and revolves around Shirayuki, a red-haired girl working at a herb shop. She is a kind-hearted girl that doesn’t want any trouble, but when she gets noticed by prince Raji who wants her as his concubine, she has to leave everything behind and flee from home. On her journey, she meets prince Zen of the neighboring country and together they try to overcome their obstacles.
The second season continues their story right where it left off, so fans of the series certainly won’t be disappointed!

Next up is a recommendation we have specially picked for fans of Oyatsu: Dagashi Kashi is a new anime that revolves around everyday life in a candy store.
We have already introduced you to the world of Dagashi some time ago on this blog, but now you can also experience it in anime form. Shikada Kokonotsu is a guy who dreams of becoming a famous manga artist. However, his dad wants him to take over the family business and run a rural candy store once he retires. On top of that, a famous sweets company is interested in the skills of his father, but he will only leave if Kokonotsu agrees to abandon his dream. How will he decide?
Genres: Comedy, Shounen
Last but not least we have a highly anticipated show for all fans of the dark and unknown.
Manga author Satoru Fujinuma has a special ability: he can travel back in time to prevent crimes and deaths from happening. It is his duty to make things right so that no innocent lives are lost. But his already challenging life takes one more turn when he gets framed for a crime he didn’t commit. He gets sent back in time once again and finds himself in grade school, months before one of his classmates went missing. Can he prevent one more terrible incident?
Genres: Psychological, Seinen, Supernatural
This sums up our sneak peek into the new anime season. Of course, there are a lot more shows to come that will certainly be able to get a huge fanbase in next to no time. I am optimistic for the state of anime in 2016 and cannot wait to watch all the new shows out there.
