Hello there! Long time no see, or… read. Hope you’re enjoying your summer so far! For me it’s been okay I guess. The exams haven’t all gone perfectly well, meaning I’ll have to try again this fall in Season 2 of “suffering with university exams”. But at least one thing is certain – whatever happens, I won’t be repeating this year of university.
To not go into too many details here, I now have a period where I can put my mind off these things. And I’m using this time to improve my video editing skills, as I really want to pursue that area, especially motion graphics. This also led me to do a lot of thinking on the future of this blog. But for the very near future, things are likely to stay the same.
One last thing before getting into the actual thing this post is about, check out my new video. It’s kind of the result of those attempts to improve my video editing skills. I’m proud of the way this looks.
Sooo, the actual post. Summer 2019 season of anime. I’m checking out this anime season more than 2 weeks later than I usually would. It’s because of being busy with other things but also because I simply couldn’t stop watching Chihayafuru. Now when I finished it, can we just jump onto the Fall 2019 season already now so I can watch season 3?
I guess I have no other choice then but to go through the stuff I’m most likely to watch in this Summer 2019 anime season.
Dumbbell Nan Kilo Moteru? (MAL link)
An anime about working out sure sounds like an unusual concept to me. And I would like to check it out, especially since it has cute girls too. Also, in a Croatian anime group (yes, those actually exist), I’ve seen a screenshot from this anime where they actually mentioned Croatia. A reference to my own (terrible) country in an anime? I’m curious!

What mainly got me interested in this was the PV. I love the intense vibe it has given me. I don’t really have much experience with space anime, but I hope it won’t end up as regrettable as the last anime I watched that involved space and teens… (Darling in the Franxx).

I’m not gonna lie, the main reason I’m gonna check this out is the hype surrounding it in the community. But watching how the characters will restore a world full of statues does sound interesting.
Araburu Kisetsu no Otome-domo yo (MAL link)
The PV for this did look kind of promising but I wasn’t sure if I actually wanted to watch it. Until I saw it being compared to Sora Yori mo Tooi Basho. That’s how easy I am. Just write that it’s a good match with one of my all time favorite anime and chances are I will watch it.
Enen no Shouboutai (MAL link)
It certainly helps that this anime already has a good looking waifu circulating around anime twitter. But it doesn’t seem like that will be the only good thing about this anime. Firefighters fighting against more things than just fire…
Nakanohito Genome [Jikkyouchuu] (MAL link)
This is likely going to be… trash xD. But the pink haired character looks cute. And that strange llama character reminded me of the giraffe from Revue Starlight. Not that these are even good reasons to start an anime, but who knows, it may be an enjoyable watch.
Machikado Mazoku (MAL link)
This is simply… so cute that I can’t help but watch it. Also reading the synopsis, I kind of got reminded of Gabriel Dropout, which is a good thing.
And these would be my picks for Summer 2019! Am I missing out on something great? Please let me know your thoughts and what you are watching! I’ve seen many people say this is one of the best seasons in a while, and I hope that proves to be the case!
