This Summer is looking like the weakest season for ecchi in over a decade, and there’s a chance the upcoming Fall season could be even worse.
This season has potentially no full length episode blue-ribbon ecchi series, but an unprecedented number of short form ones.
This marks the 5th anniversary of my first season preview post, and in that time a clear trend has emerged: studios don’t like releasing ecchi series in Winter time.
Senran Kagura saves us from an otherwise bland Fall 2018 season.
Yuragi-sou no Yuuna-san figures to be the crown jewel of 2018, and there are plenty of other interesting shows as well.
Despite being a very strong anime season overall, there isn’t a lot going on ecchi-wise this Spring. DxD Hero should do more than enough to make up for that, and hopefully Cutie Honey comes through as well.
This is looking like yet another season we have to endure rather than enjoy, though at least it’s a solid improvement over Fall 2017.
It’s another quiet season, though one show has the potential to be among the year’s best for ecchi.
The Summer 2017 season seems to have a wider range of outcomes than per usual.
Last winter was the weakest fanservice season in over a decade, but this upcoming Winter season has found a way to be even worse.
