Synopsis: Four guys work in a japanese tea shop
Should I Watch this: From the trailer it looks like a rather fun and light-hearted slice of life comedy, focusing on guys working in a tea shop. Another show this season to relax and chill out to.

Should I Watch this: From the trailer and promotional material this looks like a fantasy sci-fi action, based on a light novel, that has characters fight monsters with unique types of magic. The trailer promises some interesting magic mechanics. One for those who like action.
Shiyan Pin Jiating – Frankenstein Family
Japanese Air Date: 9th April 2018

Synopsis: A scientist couple are arrested after it is discovered they have been performing illegal genetic modifications on five of their children. The youngest child is the only one not to be modified, and must take care of his family in their absence.
Should I Watch this: At first glance the series seems a bit like Monster Musume, but with a family of children. Although this seems like a more serious depiction of monster children, rather than being ecchi and comedic it. It looks like it'll be a slice of life style show with monster people, and it's definitely an interesting looking one.

Should I Watch this: The series promises a lot of action. The animation studio is Polygon Pictures, who made the Knights of Sidonia anime as well as various other CG based anime, which promises to give the show a distinctive look, if nothign else.

Should I Watch this: This is one of the shows I am most looking forward to. I loved the original series and really enjoyed the visual novels of both Steins;Gate and Steins;Gate 0. A fascinating sci-fi series, with a fun cast of characters and some intense moments. Definitely one to watch!
