New Anime for 2016

The new year is rolling in and with it comes new anime shows for the season. I’m sure most of you are curious what new shows there are to keep an eye out for this year. I’m going to mention a few here today that you will not want to miss!

First off, Digimon Tri. This actually came out recently in four episodes but will have more coming out this March. Join Taichi and the rest of the original gang three years after the events that unfolded in season two of Digimon Adventures. All the teens are in high school now trying to make decisions on what they will do for their futures. It had been a while since the DigiWorld had closed off from theirs, making no way for them to see their Digimon partners anymore. Suddenly, strange occurrences started around the town, causing electronic devices to malfunction. There is even a sighting of a Kuwagamon! It is up to the team to figure out what is going on.

Next in the line up we have Ao No Kanata No Four Rhythm. This looks to be an interesting anime. It takes place in the southern islands of Japan. This is in a future setting, where people have invented anti-graviton shoes that let people fly in the skies. These are no original shoes powered by feathers or engines. They work off of a person’s own body strength. With this invention a new sport was formed called the “Flying Circus”. *pokes my arm muscle* Yeah I’m not sure I would make the cut. The main character had an interest in the sport mentioned above, but was defeated and left the sport. It was only through training a new transfer student to fly that his passion for the sport returned.

Another interesting looking anime is titled ” Divine Gate”. It is a world where the Divine Gate has opened and now the living world, the heavens, and the underworld became connected. It has caused all kinds of chaos through the world. The World Council is formed to restore the order. Peace is restored and the Divine Gate becomes a thing of the past and just a legend. However, the World Council gathers up boys and girls that they see fit to reach the Divine Gate. The council has their own goals and objectives in reaching the gate. It is said those who reach the gate can remake the world. So what will happen when they reach the door?

Last one I’ll mention is Fairy Tail Zero. This is based in the past story of Mavis Verilion, the very first Guild Master of Fairy Tail. Back then, Mavis Vermilion was just a servant on Sirius Island. She served a guild master and his daughter, Zera. When the guild came under attack, Mavis pulled Zera from the wreckage into the forest. Seven years went by, and the powerful wizards arrived on the island, seeking a powerful jade gemstone. What happens next? You will just have to watch and find out!
