2014 Summer Anime Season Preview

If 2014 Spring is a season of Sports (just right before World Cup too, talk about excellent timing), then 2014 Summer is a season of high-profile sequels. I don't normally preview sequels but the titles of this particular season are making so much noise that foregoing them would certainly undermine the comprehensiveness of the preview. We just don't normally get this level of concentration of hotly anticipated sequels. The rest of schedule doesn't look too shabby either, especially considering the not-too-impressive history of summer seasons; for one thing, we have Watanabe helming a new show at Mappa, you can't really go wrong with that. One last thing before I move on to the real stuff, I left out some shows that have no merits besides pandering. Trash is trash, I've already spent too much time in past seasons ragging on them, so the new plan is to not bother at all.
