Seasonal Anime Dropping Party: Spring 2017

My quadriannual ritual where I give new anime the three-scene rule.

FRAME ARMS GIRL
Apparently it's a card game anime or something.
DROPPED

SHINGEKI NO KYOJIN S2
The OP sucks, and the OP is the only reason to watch this.
DROPPED

GRANBLUE FANTASY
Lots of lights and sounds. A girly friendship or something. I don't care.
DROPPED


DANMACHI GAIDEN
The point of a side-story that doesn't focus on the OPMC isn't to deliver us the same thing but female.
MAYBE

EROMANGA-SENSEI
Not actually about eromanga, it's apparently Denpa Onna or something like that.
PICKED UP

ROOM MATE
It's all dudes. Is this gay? They act like there's a girl around. You. You, the viewer, are the girl. It's in first person.
DROPPED

GRIMOIRE OF ZERO
There has never been a good story based on Magical Racism Is Bad.
DROPPED

TSUGUMOMO
Magical girlfriend shonen action with Kana Asumi in the lead and a little effort in the fight scenes. I can dig it.
PICKED UP

BOKU NO HERO ACADEMIA
Probably the least creative adaptation I have ever seen.
PICKED UP

RENAI BOKUN
"Oh look at me, all the other anime do this but we're going to point out it's cliche and then do it."
DROPPED

SEIKAISURU KADO
A beautiful story about a bureaucrat using his drive, talent, and networking skills to save a factory, tragically cut short by the intrusion of a sci-fi plot.
ON NOTICE

SAGRADA RESET
Groundhog Day plot - awesome. Everyone is a boring person -
DROPPED

RE-CREATORS
Victims of Japanese authors' callous overuse of violence and dystopia break into the real world (or is it? really makes ya think) to exact vengeance on their creators. High production values. Rushed plot. Can the studio that brought us Aldnoah Zero take a complex idea with deep implications to a satisfactory end?
lolno but it's pretty to watch.
PICKED UP

TSUKI GA KIREI
Apparently some kind of school romance?
MAYBE

SAKURA QUEST
I tend to bet on PA Works but I'm not in the mood right now.
MAYBE

FANTASISTA STELLA
Some kind of hot-blooded soccer anime? Everyone in it cares about it a lot though.

DROPPED

SHUUMATSU NANI SHITEMASU KA? ISOGASHII DESU KA? SUKUTTE MORATTE II DESU KA?
In the beginning there was a context-free action scene with sad music. Then there was a delightful rooftop chase. Then there was a montage.
DROPPED

GIN NO GUARDIAN
>chinese
DROPPED

OUSHITSU KYOUSHI HAINE
Gay.
DROPPED

FUKUMENKI NOISE
There's a school band it looks like?
MAYBE

SHINGEKI NO BAHAMUT: VIRGIN SOUL
I loved the first one but I never finished it.
MAYBE

AKASHIC RECORD
So there's a magic school, right? And some magic schoolgirls showing off their archetypes, skip ahead, there is a man, being magically abused, for an imagined slight
DROPPED

CLOCKWORK PLANET
Why should I care about any of these people
Starting stories with action scenes should be BANNED for our own good
DROPPED

SIN: NANATSU NO TAIZAI
No knights, no fights, no giantess, not what I ordered.
DROPPED

HINAKO NOTE
Not nearly enough CGDCT this season.
PICKED UP but if this goes Hanayamata with the drama it will cease to be picked up

KABUKIBU
Better not be gay.
MAYBE

WARAU SALESMAN
Retro animation, acts like it's clever?
MAYBE
 
TWIN ANGEL BREAK
Looks like Futari wa Precure. Does J.C. Staff do that kind of thing? I like the VAs I guess. 
MAYBE
 
MACHIAVELLISM
Sort of a Dragons Rioting thing?
MAYBE

ALICE TO ZOUROKU
Full-length episodes are long. Old man protecting super girl plot, good camera work.
MAYBE

BANCHOU OTOME
A short with a reverse trap banchou. All right.
MAYBE
