What I am looking for this winter? Happiness Charge Precure is a confirmed Yes! Silver Spoon which I enjoyed the first season is on my list. Maken Ki is my guilty pleasure since I am following the manga. Robot Girls Z was funny in their episode zero promo and Sailormoon which I hope they will give some trailer before the end of the year. The rest of the shows will be the same-Watch the first three episodes then decide. Until then, see you in the new season!
