What Will I Watch? Summer 2017 Anime Season

The Summer 2017 Anime Season is coming just beyond the horizon, and I thought it would be fun to make this list to inform you on what series I am most looking forward to watching. As for now these are the only series that I will be watching from this upcoming anime season, however I will consider watching a few others considering how well it is received by others. This list includes: 18if, Dive!!!, In Another World with My Smartphone, Love & Lies, Musashino, Princess Principle, and RoboMasters. I will also be watching a bunch of other Spring 2017 anime season leftovers, in which I will be mentioning in this list as well. If you by the off chance that you feel as if I have missed something, then feel free to mention it in the comments down below.

Be sure to check back in a few weeks when I (hopefully) release my first impressions post on the Summer Season.

Note: This list will be updated as more information is released on each series.
