2017 Winter Simulcasts

Well, the Winter 2017 season has started. Looks like this should be a great season. Lots of fun shows. Here's a list of new shows:

https://myanimelist.net/anime/season/2017/winter

I'm watching:

KonoSuba: Season 2 - I loved the first season. It was one of my favorite shows in 2016. I can't wait to see more.

Little Witch Academia (TV) - I've been looking forward to this for years. The two OVAs were awesome.

Gabriel DropOut - The first episode was hilarious. Doga Kobo is becoming my favorite studio. You'll enjoy this if you like their other shows (Love Lab, Monthly Girls Nozaki-kun, Yuru Yuri, GJ Club, Himouto, New Game, etc).

Masamune-kun's Revenge - The first episode was very good. It should be a fun rom/com series.

Interviews With Monster Girls - Another show with a great first episode. I'm interested to see where they go.

Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid - I love the manga, so I'm looking forward to the series.

Urara Meirocho - Looks like a fun show.

What are you watching this season?

Re: 2017 Winter Simulcasts

Seems like I'm watching three anime shows that is related to road cycling -

Minami Kamakura High School Girls Cycling Club
Yowamushi Pedal New Generation - Love this series.
Long Riders! - through they started before Winter, it's great biking series. It's almost related to my experience with road cycling that I started 2 years ago. One part in 2nd episode that got me laughing -

Ami was struggling on climb and she was wondering how long she have to climb up. Her ride mate, Hinako telling her that the climb "will be over in no time." But it turned out much longer climb.

Ami arrived where Hinako and Yayoi were waiting. She parked her folding bike and took helmet off and then brisk walk up to Hinako.

Ami: Hinako, that was terrible! This hill isn't "over in no time"! You lied!
Hinako: Oh, come on. This is nothing comparing to a mountain pass. That's not a fair comparison. But you made it. Way to go.

I'm trying to find other new series to watch...

Re: 2017 Winter Simulcasts

I'll eventually watch Little Witch Academia. I've made a promise to catch up on my vast back catalog of unwatched anime BDs before watching new stuff.

Re: 2017 Winter Simulcasts

Speaking of Amazon, are people planning to sign up for Amazon's forthcoming $5 per month anime service?

I might've had it not required $99 a year Amazon Prime to be able to get....
I have no other need in Prime as I don't buy on Amazon often enough to warrant it, and thus I'm not looking to pay $160 a year just for the few titles Amazon gets exclusives to.

Re: 2017 Winter Simulcasts

I am undecided at the moment. I actually dropped crunchyroll recently as I simply couldn't find the time to watch everything.

Holy crap, this show is hilarious. I couldn't stop laughing during this week's episode. So far it's the best comedy show of the season.

I don't see enough exclusive content to justify the cost. It would be nice if they got more anime movies. The other streaming services don't carry too many of those.

Ah this explains why there's no Crunchyroll app on Amazon fire tv.
