Are you gonna watch Charlotte?
1 – Charlotte
Genre: School and Super Power
Anime Summary: Amidst all the norms and casualness of his student life, Yuu Otosaka unexpectedly gains a peculiar power; he is suddenly able to possess people and control their movements. Surprisingly, the power he manifests is half-baked - he can only possess people within his sight and do so for ONLY FIVE SECONDS!!! But even though his unexpected power has its inconvenient limitations, he uses it to its utmost limit for his own gain. Climb the school ladder, transfer to a high-class school, gain the trust of the most popular girl in school - all of which he does with his power’s aid.
One day, he gets cornered by Nao Tomori, a girl who also has a unique half-baked power. She along with a few others coerces Yuu Otosaka to transfer to their school and reveals their vital undertaking. Thereafter, destiny starts to move for the power-holders.
Why it's a Must-Watch: Before things get too intense, I would like let you know that Charlotte was made by the same people who are behind the well-known and celebrated anime series, Angel Beats and Clannad. With that said, I just couldn’t help but expect this one to be grand and as good as the two. Like you know, Angel Beats and Clannad are super popular “feels” roller coasters! With that much info, one can assume that there’s greatness with this title called Charlotte. Well, if not and everything fails, Charlotte isn’t really bad at all. Its premise is interesting and it just raises a flag that says it’s gonna be great. Let’s just wait and see!
Are you gonna watch Dragon Ball Super?
2 - Dragon Ball Super
Genre: Action, Adventure, Comedy, Fantasy, Martial Arts, Shounen, and Super Power

Far away, a world is half-destroyed by the strongest creature of the universe - the god of destruction, Beerus. Simultaneously with all the peace going around on Earth and the ventures of Beerus in far away galaxy, Supreme Kai perceives the disturbance and omen of what destruction is yet to come.

Well, if you’ve watched Dragon Ball or are familiar with it, then you’d know that this new series of it is the real deal! Entitled “Dragon Ball Super”, it just feels that it’s really gonna be super!

Are you gonna watch Gangsta?
3 - Gangsta.
Genre: Action, Drama, and Seinen
Anime Summary: In a city as messy as pandemonium and as putrid as dirt, everything just seem to find its new lows every single day. Petty thieves and robbers roam around, mafia members and gangsters threaten each other, whores are widespread and cops are as corrupt as ever! But even though all kinds of bad elements linger around, there’s only as much bad stuff they can commit for everything has limitations.
Now enter - the Handymen! Nick and Worick are the two members of handymen, and they’re a duo to be feared! If there’s something to be done no matter how outrageous or low, they’ll do it! And as for the dirty jobs, their skills know no bounds. They one day are given a job by a cop they know, and unknown to them - it’s a job that will soon lead to the realization that there exist a job that’s more than they could handle.
Why it's a Must-Watch: Seinen, seinen, seinen! Yes, Gangsta is legitimately a seinen anime show! Did you not just read the summary?! Based on that, you’d know that this one’s not for the immature and amateur anime watchers. Gangsta is gruesomely good, and I kinda sense that it’s gonna be more intense as it goes on. Maybe most of its parts are rated MATURE but, it’s really something seinen fans shouldn’t miss. And besides, most Japanese Animations are in one way or another, rated MATURE in their own ways. Gangsta just steps its game higher than the rest. And for you to know what I’m saying, just watch it! Its first episode does give off vibes that there’s a lot more intensity into it!

Are you gonna watch God Eater?
4 - God Eater
Genre: Action, Demons, Fantasy, Military, and Supernatural
Anime Summary: Most of the world is a mess and a wasteland in the year 2071. Obnoxious creatures known as Aragami roam the land freely and lay waste wherever they go. Their origin is a mystery and their very existence is a threat!
Fortunately for humanity, an organization known as Fenrir exists! Fenrir’s goal is to obliterate each and every Aragami in the world with their weapons called “God Arcs” and the wielders called “God Eaters.”
With the God Arcs made from the very cells of the Aragami, they shall get a taste of their own medicine by the hands of the God Eaters. Trials and hardships await though because they are not as easy as they might seem - they did lay most of the world in ruins. And so, the fight for the survival of humanity commences!
Why it's a Must-Watch: Well, to start off - God Eater is a new show based on a game for the PSP. I don’t know why, but there’s a serious hype going around about it potentially being one of the best anime this season. And so, based on the first episode - it didn’t disappoint! Most of the things around it are fantastic! Some elements needs a little bit of getting-used-to but overall, it’s great! I can’t say much about what’s going to happen, but I believe that there’s surely something about the hype that says that this is going to be a show that’s just begging to be watched! At this moment, God Eater’s potential is overwhelming!
