Spring has dawned upon us once again and in this new season, we welcome the students from Yuuei Koukou (雄英高校) as they combat bad guys while finishing their homework in Boku no Hero Academia 2 . As for a certain individual, Kurogo Kurusu, his journey begins after school hours when he recruits members to his newly formed Kabuki club in Kabukibu! Not falling behind the bandwagon are the veterans who are making a comeback from Natsume Yuujinchou, Kyoukai no Rinne, Shingeki no Kyoujin, Berserk, Uchoten Kazoku, and the gang from Kekkai Sensen .
Here’s a glimpse of what will we be watching this spring:
Stars: Nobunaga Shimazaki, Yuichiro Umehara, Kengo Kawanishi
Date Airing: 6 April 2017
Summary: Kabukibu! tells the story of a boy named Kurogo Kurusu(CV:Taichi Ichikawa), who is crazy about kabuki. His school does not have an official kabuki club so he sought out members who would want to join him and form the club.
Why would I watch this? One person’s enthusiasm can easily rub off to another. I guess, Kabukibu is another retelling of a series with a “you can do anything when you set your mind to” setting. Nothing was spared from making this light novel into an anime when the producers sought the help of CLAMP to do the anime’s main character designs. Let’s just hope that the series will be able to pull through and that Kurogo Kurusu can round up a few members to his club and start performing kabuki.

Atom: The Beginning
Stars: Yuichi Nakamura, Takuma Terashima , Sakurai Takahiro
Date Airing: 15 April 2017
Summary: Dr Tenma(CV:Yuichi Nakamura) is a genius robot scientist. He envisioned robots to be in the image of god. Dr Hiroshi Ochanomizu (CV:Takuma Terashima), the other genius robot scientist, believes otherwise. Will the two scientist ever reach into an agreement? Will the robot, A106(CV:Satsuki Yukino), that they jointly created justify their will and ideals? This is a series about the early years of Dr Umataro Tenma and Dr Hiroshi Ochanomizu and serves as a precursor to the series, Mighty Atom.
Why would I watch this? This is not the story about Mighty Atom, the character we grew up loving. This is a story of his creator, Dr Tenma and of his colleague, Dr Ochanomizu. Both are distinguished gentlemen in their field and both have different attitude and approach on how robots should be. It gives us a glimpse on their life before the creation of Mighty Atom. What led Dr Tenma and Dr Ochanomizu to eventually create Mighty Atom, we hope this series will tell us.
