The Fall 2017 Anime Preview Guide

by The Anime News Network Editorial Team,


Welcome to Anime News Network's Fall 2017 Preview Guide! Here's how it goes: our team of critics write up their impressions instantly, to be posted here as they go along. Each critic will cover as many shows as they can handle, giving you alternate takes on most every show.

The guide is ongoing, organized by series and updated multiple times a day. Throughout the next week or two, we'll be updating as often as possible with new perspectives on new episodes from our team of critics. New reviews will be posted as soon as they're written, with each critic's name being added to the roster beneath the show's title. Check back a couple of times every day during the guide, and you're likely to see new shows pop up with multiple takes to enjoy!

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!
