    There's a few I've seen earlier seasons for and am excited about

    • Overlord (season 3)
      • Interesting take on the isekai videogame flavor, where a player (seemingly the only player) is trapped in a fantasy MMORPG world as an incredibly powerful character and guild leader after the server shutdown. Pretty good action, interesting cast of characters, some humor. I really enjoyed the first two seasons and am looking forward to seeing more of the mystery unfold.
    • Attack on Titan / "Shingeki no Kyojin" (season 3)
      • Humans are on the brink of extinction, tormented by enormous and varied humanoid giants ("titans"). Fighting back, unraveling the mystery of where they came from and how to defeat them. Great action, lots of plot twists, very well animated. Been keeping up with this one and trying to avoid spoilers from friends who read the manga.

    As for totally new, these seem interesting

    • Hanebado!
      • Sports anime for highschool badminton. I loved Hakyuu! (highschool volleyball) and Days(highschool soccer), and am hoping this will be similar. The studio for this, Liden Films, also handled Sword Art Online and Killing Bites, so at least the action animation should be good.
    • Banana Fish
      • Some sort of present-day police mystery tied to the Vietnam War. Love a good investigative mystery and the promo image looks intriguing. The animation studio, MAPPA, has put out a number of great series, so I have high hopes.

      MAPPA is always an interesting studio to watch. They've got quite the repertoire.

    I'm curious to see the rest of FLCL Alternative, I think the first episode was pretty great and I liked what we've seen from Progressive so far.

      What did you think of FLCL? How much is the current series like it? The original didn't really resonate with me, so I've been on the fence for the new stuff.

        It's very much in the same vein as the first FLCL, but a little less over-the-top experimental with it's animation. It's a comfy sequel if you liked FLCL and Alternative seems like it's actually trying to do things slightly differently but if the first wasn't your cup of tea I wouldn't go in expecting to be blown away.

    Planet With: It's written by Satoshi Mizukami, what else is there to say. Grand Blue: Everyone's favorite drinking DIVING manga is getting animated!

      The name Satoshi Mizukami doesn't ring a bell, what else has he produced?

    Besides ongoing stuff like BnHA? My first thought was to scan through the studios for my favorites, which gave me:
    Banana Fish - MAPPA - A mafia drama, apparently.

    And then I looked for stuff I'd read:
    Chio-chan no Tsuugakuro - Diomedea - An otaku girl with a hyperactive imagination walks to school.

    Next I looked for movies that I knew were coming out:
    BnHA The Movie: Futari no Hero
    K: Seven Stories Movie 1 - R:B - Blaze
    K: Seven Stories Movie 2 - Side:Blue - Tenrou no Gotoku
    K: Seven Stories Movie 3 - Side:Green - Uwagaki Sekai
    Non Non Biyori Movie: Vacation

    And finally we have an anime whose PV made me just a bit curious:
    Happy Sugar Life

    I'll probably watch Overlord S3, but it might not happen this season as I have yet to see S2 and I have some older series I'm in the middle of. (I don't watch a lot of seasonal stuff.)
