New Anime – May 2016

Hello hello,

This is a new section that I am adding to the blog and I would love to know your thoughts about it. I don’t know about you but the anime ‘seasons’ use to confuse me a little. Mainly because my Spring starts with September and not with March. Other than that, the sites that do the seasonal release dates (they are awesome) they give a massive list of anime with basic information of what is coming. I myself like to take things in bit by bit and as such have taken their long lists and broken it down to give monthly posts of the anime being released each month.
