Planet With: A new Mecha show (No further details)

Zoids Wild: Based on the long running toyline from Takara Tomy.

Like my title said for this summer preview, it is a mixed bag. One hand, I am really looking forward to see High Score Girl which I read the manga and there are a lot of tributes and Easter eggs based on video games in general. Provided that the show is able to get the licences from game companies to do them although the manga did got the licence to show all these games.

Yuragi-sou no Yuuna-san is another show that I am looking forward to but seeing how Toloveru was butchered when it first aired, I am really worried about this show. Given that based on the manga, the male lead is not a pushover and win the hearts of female demons and human girls alike, making it awesome.

The rest of the series as usual, I will watch it based on the first three episodes rule. Furthermore, ongoing shows like Gegege no Kitarou, Gundam Build Divers, Golden Kamuy and Juushinki Pandora are pretty good in my opinion. Until then, see you in July for the new shows!
