New year, new anime season. Show list of MAL is here. Stuff that I'll be checking out. Citrus: I followed the manga for a while and I periodically forget it exists, I still quite like it. So I'll be giving this a try. Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card-hen: I always liked the CCS anime and manga when I was younger, one of the few series where I actually possess the physical volumes. That said, the very premise seems to be basically the same thing again, Sakura capturing Cards because something happened to them, whereas I would have liked the higher level stuff to be explored. Who knows, maybe it will do that or do something interesting with the characters. Gonna check it out at least. Ito Junji Collection: I quite like his stuff. For those who aren't familiar with him, here is an interesting video by Super Eyepatch Wolf talking about the way it can be unnerving and rather scary. Not sure if the horror will translate to the anime format but no reason not to check it out. Think the first episode is even out on crunchyroll. Kokkoku: This looks kinda interesting, first time I am hearing about this but dunno, it also sounds like it could be bad. Depends on the execution, really, so gonna check it out at least. Violet Evergarden: This is the anime I have been eagerly expecting for a year or so now, ever since I saw those gorgeous gifs and later trailers. The animation is outright breathtaking and I love the character design. The story synopsis seems interesting as well, so I'm definitely going to give this one a try and hope it's as good as it looks. The trailers made it seem more romance oriented than I had been led to believe but maybe that's just trailer stuff, so not sure. The one thing is that it's done by Kyoto Animation which isn't bad but the fact that it will be on Netflix kinda is as it will not be released outside Japan before spring 2018. Why Netflix outside Japan always has to wait a few months at best and about a year at worst before giving us access I don't understand but it is what it is. Then again, Netflix says new episode is coming out January 11th, so not sure at this point. Kakegurui still hasn't been released there so no clue. Would be weird if Violet Evergarden were to be released before that. Well, we'll see, I guess. That's it for me at this point, maybe something that sounds shitty will catch my interest by being better than the summary indicated.
