BEM

I couldn’t find English subs, so here’s Spanish subs lol

These demons/infernal are 1st generation however 2nd and 3rd generations are able to control the fire. Shinra is nicknamed the “Devil’ footprint” because he can ignite his foot by will; he joins the brigade and uncovers the secrets of his family’s death from a mysterious fire 12 years ago.

Wasteful Days of Highschool Girl

Tanaka is bored and starts giving out nicknames to her classmates. Sakuchi is a nerd so she is nicknamed “ota”; Saginomiya is nicknamed “Robo” because she has an expressionless face. In retaliation, they nicknamed her “Baka”. A cute comedic anime about friends in Highschool pretty much!

A bunch of girls in a Highschool literature club (only Monika (ʘ‿ʘ) ) gather around for a little ice breaker. They go around and ask the question “What’s the one thing you want to do before dying?”, and one girl just says “Sex”. It’s basically a coming of age story lol.

Try Knights

Riku Haruma loves Rugby and used to play it, but quit because of his physique. While entering highschool he notices his peers playing some hardcore rugby, and starts watching. He sees Akira Kariya playing as well, and without thinking gives him advice while he is running. That moment rekindled the fire inside of him and made him realize that he loves Rugby too much to quit.

I have no idea how rugby works, and I doubt this anime will teach me anything. Can’t wait for the dramatic representation of rugby though; maybe a dark past? Who knows!

Air Date: July 31

Genre: Sports, School, Drama, Shoujo

Studio: Gonzo

It’s time to say goodbye to spring 2019 and hello to a new promising season of anime! I definitely learned a huge lesson last season: DO NOT and I mean DO NOT pick up too many anime to watch in one season because it’s hard af to keep up!

The summer 2019 charts are looking quite promising, so I decided to handpick the ones I thought seem to be the best and recommend them. This list will have a lot of titles, but seriously don’t make my mistake and try to watch them all (ಥ﹏ಥ) .
