17 Upcoming Anime Series to Look Forward to in 2017
6. Code Geass: Lelouch of the Resurrection (Season 3) – TBA 2017
If I remember my Code Geass right, and it has been awhile since I watched it, it seemed like a pretty neat little ending. However, this third season will take place several years after the second season and advance the story further. While many fans wait almost vibrating with excitement, others sit with bated breath.
The major worry that many fans have is about the writer, who is returning for the third season, but hasn’t exactly thrived with his other works like Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress and Valvrave the Liberator. They worry is that he has lost his touch and might tarnish an otherwise epic series.
7. Seven Deadly Sins Season 2 – TBA 2017
Technically, Seven Deadly Sins has a brief sequel in 2016 called “Signs of the Holy War,” but it was only four episodes. The titled “Seven Deadly Sins 2,” promises to be a bit more substantial as it continues on with the manga, which is currently on hiatus.
8. FLCL Season 2 – Late 2017
Oh, yes. This bad boy is coming in 2017 too, supposedly. This time it’s not a short OVA that barely makes sense, but a TV series with an unconfirmed episode count.
This sequel takes place “many years” after the events of the previous FLCL, but the war between Medical Mechanica and Fraternity rages on. Instead of starring Naota, this series will star an apathetic girl named Hidomi who ends up with a new teacher, the veritably insane Haruko who has finally returned to Earth.
9. Yuna Yuki is a Hero Season 2 – March (?) 2017
If you need a magical girl fix in 2017, you’ll get it via YuYuYu. Unfortunately, the actual sequel is confirmed to be only six episodes, but they are also releasing a prequel that will also be six episodes. It is unknown if they will release these together in a Danganronpa 3 Past-Future arc affair, but it seems likely since it metes out to a typical 12 episodes.
