This escalates further as he has to protect Miu and himself from other students known as Returners who has psychic powers.

Sword Art Online: Kazuto enter a virtual MMORPG called Sword Arts Online. But there is no escape in this world and there are only two ways to get out-One is to finish the game, the second is getting a game over but you will die in the real world!

Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon Season 2: The continuation of one of the thickest light novels in Japan and the large amount of characters rivalling the Twelve Kingdoms story. The first season left me puzzled with too many back stories untold and few character development, hopefully this season will resolved everything.

Dog Days Season 2: Shinku and his childhood friend Becky returned to Biscotti and meet old friends and rivals. But this time Leonmitchelle of Galette summoned her own champion who happened to be Shinku's cousin and rival-Nanami!

Dakara Boku wa, H ga Dekinai: Kaga Ryosuke is a sexually charged person and met a girl named Lisarah Restor who happened to be Death. She is looking for the "Singular Man" in the human world and need Ryosuke's ecchi spirit as a source of energy for Lisarah on Earth.

Joshiraku: From the author of Sayonara, Zetsubou Sensei come a story of a group of female rakugo performers who discuss random subjects which usually resulted in telling a different subject at the end.
Oda Nobuna no Yabou: Another time traveling story from the Sengoku Era. This time is about Sagara Yoshiharu who landed in the Sengoku Era and meeting Nobuna, the female version of Nobunaga. She ordered Sagara to take over her deceased follower, Kinoshita Tokichiro in this world.

Binbou Gami Ga: Sakura is a girl who has everything-Beauty, Brains and Health as she is filled with "Happiness energy"  but unknowingly at the cost of another people's happiness. This caused an unbalance to the happiness energy in the world and the Binboi Gami (Poverty God) Momji has come to return the energy back to it's original places.

Kokoro Connect: A strange phenomena caused the five members of the culture club to switch bodies with each other and with hilarious results.

Yuri Yuri: The second season about a group of girls who has yuri affections to each others.

Arve Puzzle: In the future, humans are able to transfer their mind to the cyber world leaving their bodies in the real world. But an accident caused the system to overload and their minds are trapped in the cyber world. Remu's sister is trapped too and he is determined to rescue her...

This season is slightly smaller with four shows that are sequels, two shows that are adapted from adult games and quite a number of shows that has got to do with alternative dimensions.

So what is my pick for this season? Dog Days season 2 is a confirm yes after first season's touching finale that I did. Mu Luv Alternative is a show that many fans of the game are anticipating however given this series' track records, they have a habit of having very dark and brutal moments.

Campione, Hagane Yuusha no Estetica and Sword Art Online sounds interesting with its' basic story plot. Hopefully it can deliver the goods when it comes. Dakara Boku wa, H ga Dekinai has a similar plot to High School DxD with a guy who is a pervert meeting a red hair demon (again!). Expect fan service to be hitting the roof like High School DxD!

The rest of the shows will be the "watch three episodes and decide" rules. Until then, see you in July for the new shows!
