Highly Anticipated Action Anime in Summer 2017 Lineup

Fate Apocrypha anime
An intense and action-packed summer awaits for every anime fans out there. We may have some few but definitely an astounding list of action anime to look forward this summer 2017 lineup. Aside from the leftover action anime from spring which are Boku no Hero Academia, Shingeki no Bahamut, and Re:Creators; it is noteworthy to re-introduce the universe of Saiyuki to both new and old anime viewers. This is a precious gem that will ignite some fire once again after a long slumber for over a decade. In addition, people think so highly of Fate/Apocrypha which simply happens to be a parallel story line of the infamous Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works, one of the best animation that we had seen in the recent years. We also had Katsugeki: Touken Ranbu which will bring some fiery swordsmanship and animation in our plate.

But that’s not going to stop him from enrolling in one of the world’s most prestigious hero academies. Now, the only thing standing between him and his first class is the academy’s formidable entrance exam—nothing a little private tutoring from the world’s mightiest hero can’t solve.
