16 Best MMOs: The Ultimate List (2020)

Orcs, magic, and space adventures with hundreds of our closest friends.

fall anime 2016With magical girl death games, rugby anime, reverse harems, and highly anticipated continuations, the Fall 2016 anime lineup is not too far away. Although we are nearly halfway through the amazing summer anime season, it’s time to get hyped for the fall anime lineup and announcements for 2016’s last cour.

This list includes all anime series — there are 43 upcoming shows — categorized by hype levels. These are the categories:

  • Will Watch/High Hype: These are anime that anyone would want to at least try the first episode. Excitement/fan support is already there and/or the series is already established/shows promise.  The manga/light novel/game/novel is rated high or it is an anime that shows very high potential for fans. These will be high priority and the anime fans will most likely watch first and/or weekly.
  • Interested/ Medium Hype: The show sounds/looks interesting, and it would be worth trying out a few episodes. These can either be original/new anime we don’t know much about or sequels of past shows that may not have been widely watched but still show promise. However, they may not be the first in your mind to watch when the new season comes out, depending on your preference. 
  • Indifferent/ Low Hype: It doesn’t look like anything new or that exciting, but we could still give it a shot. These series will be a lower priority than fan favorites, but may surprise you. 
  • Pass/No Hype: We will probably not give the series a try due to tropes, characters, or overall disinterestedness. It might be geared way too young or just be too out there.

NOTE: These levels are not solely based on personal preference, but fan support, popularity, and promise. Some may be higher for fans of particular anime as well. Also, this list only includes full-length anime series and NO movies, ovas, or specials.
