I am pretty sure that many of you are anticipating Attack on Titans Season 2 as the show to watch this Spring however for me personally, I am not that hyped after reading what was going on the manga recently. Some might even agreed that after the battle with the Female Titan, the story took a left turn with the battle focusing on other human factions rather than the Titans.

Of course, there are other shows to look out for like My Hero Academia, Berserk Season 2 (which I know many people dislike the art style from the first season), Atom the beginning which I have read the manga and it is pretty interesting to see young Tenma and Ochanomizu who are once good friends and the creation of A106 which will eventually led to Astro Boy.

Of course, the rest of the shows as usual I will watch the first three episodes before deciding whether to carry on or not. What are the shows you are hyping for? Until then, see you in April for the new season!
