The Spring 2016 Anime Preview Guide



Welcome to Anime News Network's Spring 2016 Preview Guide! Here's how it goes: our team of critics write up their impressions instantly and they get posted as they go along. Each critic will cover as many shows as they can handle, resulting in alternate takes on most every show. Check back a couple of times every day during the guide and you're likely to see something new!

The guide is now organized by show. As our critics write up each new premiere, their name will be added to the roster beneath the show's title. Check back every day for multiple takes on every series!

This is an ongoing guide. Throughout the next week or two we'll be updating as often as possible with new perspectives on new episodes from each of our team of critics. New reviews will be posted as soon as they're written.

Please remember that this is a preview guide. It is designed to give you a taste of the first episode of a show with a preliminary opinion and a few thoughts on whether or not the show has potential. These are not intended to be blanket judgments of these series as a whole. All reviews use the same ratings scale: 1-5, with 1 being the lowest. Shows that are available streaming online will be indicated as such with links.

The newest reviews will always appear at the TOP of each show's page, so if you're wondering what's new, just click the show name and the latest preview will pop right up. Scroll down to see earlier previews. New shows will be added to the top of the Preview Guide hub page here. We have a total of six writers contributing this time; not every writer will write up every show, but you'll be able to see who's done what beneath each show's title.

Click on the survey at the top of each show's page to vote for your personal score and see how other people scored the show!
