Also called as Index III, it’s the 3rd season of A Certain Magical Index series although, the franchise had several spin-off in these past few years that somehow alleviate the fans craving for the series. However, with the main title returning, one can expect for a heavy dosage of comedy, reverberating actions between mages, espers, scientist, and other entities specializing in the arts of magic.

Studio Gonzo is also back this year with a new anime based on a popular game “Conception: Ore no Kodomo o Undekure!” while Kyoto Animation is giving us a delightful gift with its new sports anime “Tsurune: Kazemai Koukou Kyuudoubu“. On the other hand, an original anime shall be presented onto us P.A. Works this time titled “Irozuku Sekai no Ashita kara” which I personally believe to be a dark horse next season due to its rather cliche but interesting plot.
