Berserk of 2016 is the winner for me. New Game! is a nice game creation SOL.
 
1. Mob Psycho 100 モブサイコ100  [Bones] (Finished 12/12)
Tags: Super Power Action, Comedy, Supernatural
Eighth-grader Shigeo "Mob" Kageyama has tapped into his inner wellspring of psychic prowess at a young age. But the power quickly proves to be a liability when he realizes the potential danger in his skills. Choosing to suppress his power, Mob's only present use for his ability is to impress his longtime crush, Tsubomi, who soon grows bored of the same tricks.
In order to effectuate control on his skills, Mob enlists himself under the wing of Arataka Reigen, a con artist claiming to be a psychic, who exploits Mob's powers for pocket change. Now, exorcising evil spirits on command has become a part of Mob's daily, monotonous life. However, the psychic energy he exerts is barely the tip of the iceberg; if his vast potential and unrestrained emotions run berserk, a cataclysmic event that would render him completely unrecognizable will be triggered. The progression toward Mob's explosion is rising and attempting to stop it is futile.
Dropped earlier and only finished it now because heard how funny and action-packed it is. And it does not look like that to me. Action segments are typical for shounens, and humor is not really good and very situational and weird. Can't get to like it and will definitely skip further seasons.

3. ReLIFE  [TMS Entertainment] (Finished 13/13)
Tags: School Drama, Romance
Dismissed as a hopeless loser by those around him, 27-year-old Arata Kaizaki bounces around from one job to another after quitting his first company. His unremarkable existence takes a sharp turn when he meets Ryou Yoake, a member of the ReLife Research Institute, who offers Arata the opportunity to change his life for the better with the help of a mysterious pill. Taking it without a second thought, Arata awakens the next day to find that his appearance has reverted to that of a 17-year-old.
Arata soon learns that he is now the subject of a unique experiment and must attend high school as a transfer student for one year. Though he initially believes it will be a cinch due to his superior life experience, Arata is proven horribly wrong on his first day: he flunks all his tests, is completely out of shape, and can't keep up with the new school policies that have cropped up in the last 10 years. Furthermore, Ryou has been assigned to observe him, bringing Arata endless annoyance. ReLIFE follows Arata's struggle to adjust to his hectic new lifestyle and avoid repeating his past mistakes, all while slowly discovering more about his fellow classmates.
It starts well, but moves monotonously in the same dull manner on and on. So everything depends on whether you get to like characters, and I did not.

4. Orange オレンジ [Telecom Animation Film] (Finished 13/13)
Tags: Shoujo Love Polygon, School, Time Travel Drama, Romance, Sci-Fi
Naho Takamiya's first day of her sophomore year of high school is off to an uneasy start. After waking up late, she receives a strange letter addressed to her. However, the letter is from herself—10 years in the future! At first, Naho is skeptical of the note; yet, after witnessing several events described to take place, she realizes the letter really is from her 26-year-old self.
The note details that Naho's future life is filled with regrets, and she hopes that her younger self can correct the mistakes that were made in the past. The letter also warns her to keep a close eye on the new transfer student, Kakeru Naruse. Naho must be especially careful in making decisions involving him, as Kakeru is not around in the future. With the letter as her guide, Naho now has the power to protect Kakeru before she comes to regret it once more.
Lots of puppy romance and naivete. Pretentious and fake, very similar to ReLIFE in that.  
Overall Rating: 6/10
 
5. 91 Days  [Shuka] (Finished 1/12)
Tags: Historical, Organized Crime Action, Drama
As a child living in the town of Lawless, Angelo Lagusa has witnessed a tragedy: his parents and younger brother have been mercilessly slaughtered by the Vanetti mafia family. Losing everything he holds dear, he leaves both his name and hometown behind, adopting the new identity of Avilio Bruno.
Seven years later, Avilio finally has his chance for revenge when he receives a mysterious letter prompting him to return to Lawless. Obliging, he soon encounters the Vanetti don's son, Nero, and seeks to befriend him using the skills he has quietly honed for years.
Set during the Prohibition era, 91 Days tells the story of Avilio's dark, bloodstained path to vengeance, as he slowly ends each of the men involved in the killing of his family.
Good mafia setting, but I've seen a lot of these, so I'm not impressed easily. Characters play their roles, but lack distinctive personality. There's not enough engagement.

Sequel.

7. New Game!  [Doga Kobo] (Finished 12/12)
Tags: Adult Cast, CGDCT, Otaku Culture, Workplace Comedy
Since childhood, Aoba Suzukaze has loved the Fairies Story game series, particularly the character designs. So when she graduates from high school, it is no surprise that she applies to work at Eagle Jump, the company responsible for making her favorite video game. On her first day, she is excited to learn that she will be working on a new installment to the series: Fairies Story 3—and even more so under Kou Yagami, the lead character designer.
In their department are people who share the same passion for games. There is Yun Iijima, whose specialty is designing monsters; the shy Hifumi Takimoto, who prefers to communicate through instant messaging; Hajime Shinoda, an animation team member with an impressive figurine collection; Rin Tooyama, the orderly art director; Shizuku Hazuki, the game director who brings her cat to work; and Umiko Ahagon, the short-tempered head programmer.
New Game! follows Aoba and the others on their adventure through the ups and downs of game making, from making the perfect character design to fixing all the errors that will inevitably accumulate in the process.
It's a nice anime about developing a professional game, so it fits me quite ok. Even though there's no story, characters are quite good, on par with Shirobako, so game can be enjoyed, at least I finished it back then, so can't deny it a masterpiece.  
Overall Rating: 7/10
 
8. Berserk Berserk (2016) ベルセルク [Millepensee, GEMBA] (Finished 1/12)
Tags: Seinen Gore, Military Action, Adventure, Drama, Fantasy, Horror
Now branded for death and destined to be hunted by demons until the day he dies, Guts embarks on a journey to defy such a gruesome fate, as waves of beasts relentlessly pursue him. Steeling his resolve, he takes up the monstrous blade Dragonslayer and vows to exact vengeance on the one responsible, hunting down the very man he once looked up to and considered a friend.

As the ragtag group slowly comes together after having decided to join Guts in his quest, they will face incredible danger unlike anything they have ever experienced before.
Can't say I detest drawing. For me arcs following Golden Age are just weaker, yet it never stopped being enjoyable for me.

9. Danganronpa 3: The End of Kibougamine Gakuen - Mirai-hen Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak High School - Future Arc ダンガンロンパ3 -The End of 希望ヶ峰学園- 未来編 [Lerche] (Finished 1/12)

10. Tales of Zestiria the Cross Tales of Zestiria the X テイルズ オブ ゼスティリア ザ クロス [ufotable] (Finished 12/12)
Tags: Action, Adventure, Fantasy 
The Celestial Records speak of the existence of the "Seraphim," a race of divine beings who give blessings to humanity and are offered prayers by them in return. Those who are anointed with the ability to interact with these spirits are known as "Shepherds." Hailed as heroes for their prompt appearances in times of crisis, while also being feared for their power, the Shepherds are imprinted in common folklore along with the Seraphim.
Sorey is a young human who has spent his entire life living in harmony alongside the Seraphim in the village of Elysia. Fascinated by the myths of the Celestial Records, he explores some nearby ruins with Mikleo—his childhood Seraphim companion—hoping to enlighten himself about the Seraphims' history with mankind.
Unfortunately, they become trapped in the depths of the historical site during their investigation. While searching for an exit, they come across a mysterious girl who desperately seeks the help of a Shepherd to save the world, which is on the brink of being consumed by darkness. Despite Mikleo's warning about making contact with other humans, Sorey decides to help the stranger, which unknowingly leads him closer to the dream of peaceful coexistence between man and Seraphim.
Found it very mundane and slow and boring.

11. Nejimaki Seirei Senki: Tenkyou no Alderamin Alderamin on the Sky ねじ巻き精霊戦記 天鏡のアルデラミン [Madhouse] (Finished 13/13)
Tags: Military Action, Adventure, Fantasy
Ikta Solork is a carefree young man who only wants two things in life: a woman on his arm and a place to nap. Unfortunately, his peaceful life is destroyed when war breaks out between the Katjvarna Empire and the neighboring Republic of Kioka. Ikta and his childhood friend, Yatorishino Igsem, join the army as military officers, where they meet the infantryman Matthew Tetojirichi, the sniper Torway Remion, and the medic Haroma Becker on a boat heading for the military exam site.
However, after a rogue storm sinks their vessel, the five of them end up in enemy territory near a military outpost. There, they discover that the heir to the Katjvarnan throne, Princess Chamille Kitora Katjvanmaninik, has been taken hostage. The five are able to rescue her, and as a reward, each one of them is granted the title of Imperial Knight—one of the highest honors a soldier can receive. It seems that Ikta will have to put his dream of tranquility on hold, as he must now become the hero he never wanted to be.
Watched it before and could never understand what it appeals to. It's average in everything but maybe battles. It's not realistic and not immersive, which results in just a dull story.

12. Amaama to Inazuma Sweetness & Lightning 甘々と稲妻 [TMS Entertainment] (Finished 3/12)
Tags: Seinen Childcare, Iyashikei Gourmet, Slice of Life
Since the death of his wife, Kouhei Inuzuka has been caring for his young daughter Tsumugi to the best of his abilities. However, with his lack of culinary knowledge and his busy job as a teacher, he is left relying on ready-made meals from convenience stores to feed the little girl. Frustrated at his own incapability to provide a fresh, nutritious meal for his daughter, Kouhei takes up an offer from his student, Kotori Iida, to come have dinner at her family's restaurant. But on their very first visit, the father and daughter discover that the restaurant is often closed due to Kotori's mother being away for work and that Kotori often eats alone. After much pleading from his pupil, Kouhei decides to continue to go to the restaurant with Tsumugi to cook and share delicious homemade food with Kotori.
Amaama to Inazuma follows the heartwarming story of a caring father trying his hardest to make his adorable little daughter happy, while exploring the meanings and values behind cooking, family, and the warm meals at home that are often taken for granted.
Childcare SOL is nice, but each episode is devoted to the different gourmet theme, and I can't enjoy that without more distinctive story like in Souma.  
Overall Rating: 6/10
 
13. Kono Bijutsu-bu ni wa Mondai ga Aru! This Art Club Has a Problem! この美術部には問題がある! [feel.] (Finished 3/12)
Tags: Seinen School, Visual Arts Comedy, Romance
Mizuki Usami is a passionate member of her school's art club, but the club has a problem—Usami is the only member who takes her craft seriously! The lazy club president constantly sleeps through activities and Collette hasn't regularly attended club activities in quite some time. Uchimaki Subaru, despite being an exceptional artist who could win an award if he tried, is obsessed with drawing the perfect 2D wife.
Light-hearted and comedic in tone, Kono Bijutsubu ni wa Mondai ga Aru! follows Usami as she struggles to do art club-like activities, often obstructed by her motley crew of good-for-nothings and her distracting crush on Subaru.
Without serious realistic characters it's yet another culture club romcom, only enjoyable if you have not seen too many of them yet.  
Overall Rating: 6/10
 
14. Handa-kun はんだくん [Diomedéa] (Finished 3/12)
 
Tags: Shounen School, Visual Arts Comedy
Hated by everyone around him, Sei Handa goes about his high school life regarded as an outcast—or at least that is what he believes. In reality, Handa is the most popular student on campus, revered by all for his incomparable calligraphy skills, good looks, and cool personality. However, due to an endless series of misunderstandings, Handa perceives the worship he receives from his legions of fans as bullying, leading the school's idol to shut himself off from the rest of his classmates.
But distancing himself from his peers does not deter them from adoring him; in fact, his attempts at drawing attention away from himself often end up unintentionally converting even the most skeptical of students into believers. Fashion models, shut-in delinquents, obsessive fangirls, and more—none can stand against the brilliance that is Sei Handa.
Variation of Sakamoto Desu Ga nonsense comedy. Watchable, but it's too silly for me to care.  
Overall Rating: 6/10
 
15. Masou Gakuen HxH Hybrid x Heart Magias Academy Ataraxia 魔装学園H×H [Production IMS] (Finished 3/12)
Tags: Harem, School Action, Comedy, Fantasy, Romance, Sci-Fi, Ecchi 
Hida Kizuna possesses the HHG (Heart Hybrid Gear) ability, but it is not strong enough to make him particularly important. His older sister calls him to transfer to a strategic defense school, where many of the students (many of which are large-breasted girls) use their HHG abilities to fight invaders from another world while wearing extremely skimpy pilot outfits. Kizuna's fighting ability doesn't measure up, but his sister has another plan—apparently having erotic experiences with Kizuna will allow the girls to replenish their energy or power-up. It looks like his new school life is going to be full of embarrassment.
Typical ecchi harem with fighting, as banal as possible.  
Overall Rating: 5/10
 
16. Taboo Tattoo タブー・タトゥー [J.C.Staff] (Finished 3/12)
Tags: Seinen Martial Arts, Super Power Action, Supernatural
Seigi, a martial arts trained middle schooler, often feels driven to protect the weaker people around him. One day, he defends a homeless man against some punks, and the man gives him a strange tattoo on his palm in return. The tattoo is a secret weapon produced in the arms race between America and the Serinistan Kingdom.
Seigi finds himself in over his head when a powerful girl, using the same secret weapon, violently pursues him in order to retrieve it. His skill at martial arts may not be enough to keep him alive, but will he be able to learn how to trigger the power of his tattoo in time?
Just senseless fighting action without anything decent to .

17. Servamp SERVAMP(サーヴァンプ) [Brain's Base, Platinum Vision] (Finished 12/12)
Tags: Josei Vampire Action, Fantasy
Mahiru Shirota firmly believes that simple is best and troublesome things should be avoided at all costs. It is troublesome to do nothing and regret it later—and this ideology has led the 15-year-old to pick up a stray cat on his way home from school. As he affectionately names the feline Kuro, little does he know that this chance meeting will spark an extraordinary change in his everyday life.
One day, Mahiru returns home to find something quite strange: a mysterious young man he has never seen before. His subsequent panic results in the uninvited guest being exposed to sunlight and—much to Mahiru's shock—transforming into Kuro! Upon revealing himself as a mere lazy shut-in vampire, Kuro promises to leave once night falls. However, one disaster after another leads to Mahiru accidentally forming a contract with his new freeloader, dragging him into a life-threatening battle of supernatural servants and bloodthirsty beings that is anything but simple.
Empty story with poor characters and presentation.

18. Rewrite リライト [8bit] (Finished 13/13)
Tags: School Action, Comedy, Romance, Supernatural
Kazamatsuri, a modern, well-developed city renowned for its burgeoning greenery and rich Japanese culture, is home to Kotarou Tennouji, a high schooler least privy to the place's shared values. Content to fill his pockets with frivolity, the proud and nosey boy whiles away his time pestering the self-proclaimed delinquent Haruhiko, and indulging in his amorous feelings toward the oddball Kotori.
Equipped with the superhuman ability to permanently rewrite any part of his body to multiply his strength or speed, Kotarou is naturally drawn to the supernatural. One special meeting with the lone member and president of the Occult Research Club, the "Witch" Akane Senri, leads to Kotarou reviving the Occult Club by recruiting Kotori and three other members: the clumsy transfer student Chihaya, the strict class representative Lucia, and the unassuming Shizuru. As Kotarou unveils hidden secrets of each member of the Occult Club through their shared adventures, he will inevitably encounter a fate that only he might be able to rewrite.
I finished anime in the past just because VN is totally unbearable. And Rewrite is horrible in every possible way. It's a difficult task to make the world worse by creating something, and Rewrite manages to get this achievement.

Tags: Super Power Action, Supernatural

As he investigates the cemetery in search for clues, he is attacked by a tomb raider using the false identity of Zhang Xilin's granddaughter.

As various factions clash to seize the mysterious power Zhang Chulan is said to have inherited from his grandfather, the young man must learn how to choose his allies if he wants to survive in this dangerous world of outcasts.
First big Chinese anime with global targeting. A decent action that fails to get anywhere after initial stage setting.  
Overall Rating: 6/10
 
20. Qualidea Code クオリディア・コード [A-1 Pictures] (Finished 3/12)
Tags: Super Power Action, Fantasy, Sci-Fi
On a quiet and peaceful day, the skies split open and extradimensional beings, designated as the Unknown, launch a swift and brutal attack against humanity. To protect the future of the country, all of Japan's children are cryogenically frozen until the end of the war to keep them out of harm's way.
Several years pass, and humanity has established a foothold in a corner of Japan, which now serves as the frontline of the war. No longer facing humanity's extinction, the children are awakened from their slumber. It is then discovered that, while in cryogenesis, the children had developed Worlds, supernatural powers unique to each person. The six most powerful children are given command of the reclaimed cities, using their powers to defend the strongholds against the continuing invasion. Childhood friends Ichiya Suzaku and Canaria Utara lead Tokyo, siblings Kasumi and Asuha Chigusa manage Chiba, and Maihime Tenkawa and Hotaru Rindou oversee Kanagawa.
Over time, the almost routine attacks from the Unknown and the clashing personalities of the city heads and subheads cultivate petty rivalries, leading to constant arguments between the three cities. With the Unknown suddenly increasing the pressure of their attacks, the three cities' leaders must learn how to work together or risk losing the last line of defense against humanity's extinction.
It's done in a very plain and cliché way which buries any attempt to tell a story.

This is but the beginning of a series of strange, seemingly unconnected events that lead to something far greater.

The cause of his torment is the mysterious fuzzy creature that has attached itself to him ever since he stumbled upon it the day before school began.
As his health continues to decline and the creature grows in size, Hanae comes across a flyer advertising an exorcist who expels youkai. Desperate and with nothing left to lose, he calls the number and is led to the Mononokean, a tea room which suddenly appears next to the infirmary.

If Hanae ever hopes to settle his debt, he must work together with Abeno to guide a variety of dangerous, strange, and interesting youkai back to the Underworld.
Not a fan of youkai, and this anime is not making an effort to keep interest.

After suffering from a shoulder injury, shy first-year university student Haruki Bandou gladly takes the opportunity to give up judo, failing to find happiness in the sport regardless of his family owning a dojo. He did not expect, however, that his best friend Kazuma Hashimoto would also decide to leave their university's judo club at the same time as him. Despite Haruki's protests, Kazuma already has plans for a new and revolutionary activity: a cheerleading team made up of only men. Although heavily reluctant, Haruki ends up helping his friend set up the team. Through sheer determination, and with support from their newfound club members, Haruki and Kazuma persist in founding the Breakers, the first ever all-male cheerleading team of Meishiin University, slowly making history in spite of the feminine tag attached to the sport of cheerleading and the prejudices, physical challenges, and self-doubts that inevitably follow.
I'd block all that cheerful boys SOL if there was a suitable tag for it.

The story of the card game follows what happens when "Hairou" portals suddenly open, fusing five different worlds together. As a result, various mysterious "Exceed" powers are awakened in teenaged girls. An academy for these so-called "Progress" girls is built on the isolated Seiran Island in the Pacific.
Superpower girls who need stimulation is such a banal concept that I'm surprised what all these silly ecchi even hope for.

At only 12 years old, Takumi Harada is already hailed as a prodigious baseball pitcher. But when his family moves to the backwater town of Nitta, Takumi has no choice but to join his new school's unskilled baseball team. This development has little effect on the boy, as he believes it is more interesting if this no-name club becomes a powerhouse due to his presence. However, due to his overwhelming talent, Takumi is in need of a catcher able to keep up with his pitches.
His worries are soon put to rest after meeting Gou Nagakura. As his fan and fellow student, Gou is eager to prove that he is not a simple braggart, but rather a player skillful enough to catch Takumi's pitches. Amid struggling to form a "battery" with Gou, Takumi comes into conflict with his new teammates due to his irreverent personality but grapples to find the true joy of the sport under his grandfather's guidance.

However, by fighting for her sister, Yuinshiel risks triggering the same calamity that once destroyed Rimgarde.

When the Ice Queen's familiars appear, they use the "Ice Mirror" to trick the girls into performing ridiculous skits. Will Urara, Inaho, and Hanabi ever step up and embrace their roles as magical girls, or will their antics prove too distracting to themselves?

The aloof high schooler Mo Fan has found himself in a universe similar yet distinctly different from his own mundane one; it is a place where magic has replaced the essence of science. Here, the most capable students are taught to master the wonders of spellworking to fend off large devastating beasts that lurk in the forests surrounding the city.
Like his previous life, Mo Fan remains the son of a poor laborer and the older step-brother to a crippled sister. Despite these disadvantages, he dreams of attending a magic school to become a magician—a highly respected and lucrative trade—in order to repay his father for his hard work.
Mo Fan is accepted into a renowned magic institution. However, rumors spread about his poverty and lack of magical ability, labeling him as the laughing stock of the school. Nonetheless, Mo Fan manages to harness not only the powerful fire element, but also the rare lightning element! Now armed with dual abilities, what dangerous encounters will the versatile mage face?
It has its flaws as Chinese shorter length ONA compared to normal episodes, but the vibe of "Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon" is here. Basically, there is potential, but with such slow pace there has not been anything worthwhile in the first season. I'll keep watching further, but what we have by this point definitely can't be called any kind of masterpiece.

There is always more to the world than meets the eye. This is the motto that twin brothers Sun Xiaotu and Sun Xiaohu follow in their lives as paranormal investigators, where what may be terrifying to some is just another day at work. Normally, it is simple for them to separate their daily lives from their job, but when they go to investigate a seemingly typical haunting of a pair of twins, a series of bizarre events throw their perception of the supernatural world into question as they become a target of the hauntings themselves.
The further the brothers search for answers to the paranormal mysteries thrown at them, the hazier the lines between truth and fiction become. Through the challenging and sometimes dangerous adventures ahead, one question remains: what kind of secrets are the ghosts trying to hide from them, and are they already more connected to the spirits than they originally thought?
Mystery spirit detectives is the royal flash of red flags for me. Don't see much sense in this.

An international school run by the United Nations now stands in the former Olympic site on the edge of Tokyo Bay. Seven teenagers with special abilities, known as "Flowers," are among the students.

Their organization has taken their family members hostage to ensure this. For the Flowers, failure would mean death not only for themselves but also for their loved ones.

At the very same time, another conspiracy that has long been in the works within the Aslan Empire is gradually revealing itself.

Mob Psycho-  Weirdly fun anime whose primary attraction is waiting for Mob to snap and blow things up.

Alderamin- This is what is called a 'senki-mono', a story about war that is partially told from the characters' perspectives and partly from an omniscient past-tense perspective.  I really enjoyed this story, and I wish they would put out a second season...

Berserk- The story of the years after the end of the Band of the Hawk.  It has an even darker and more medieval cast to it, with intersections with the inquisition witch hunts and invasions from the east added in with monsters and fairies.  It ends just as things are getting awesome.

Taboo Tattoo- Modern fantasy in an alternate earth where ruins of an ancient civilization were found in the modern era that contained 'tattoos' that granted powers to those imprinted with them (for various costs to the individual).  Unfortunately for people who think it sounds interesting, the attempt to compress an expansive setting and story into thirteen episodes ruined the pacing and made the story incoherent, so it really isn't that good outside of the action scenes.

Berserk 2016 - At least the story itself can make up for the infamy of the visual, which is the major disappointment for the fans. Then again if you can get past the art, I guess the 2016 Berserk is good on it's own.

Mob 100 - Just want to mention that the original artist is the one who draw One Man Punch, so the MC has similar looks to Saitama.

Danganronpa 3 - The epilogue of Danganronpa duology (V3 is the new continuation), and let's just say that it's quite divisive to the fans.

New Game - CGDCT based on game company, although it also has serious plot about making the game.

Koe no Katachi - What I can say that even the premise is quite dramatic, especially with the movie (And the manga) deal with the bullying of the deaf which is major concern in Japan, so it's quite inevitable there's some soap drama moments mixed in there, moreso in regard of the male MC who has the deep regret doing the bullying to her deaf female classmate.

Kimi no Na Wa - As for why the audience like it, it would be simply because of the art thanks to Makoto Shinkai effort. That said even though usually Shinkai's work has bittersweet ending (Especially ef and eden if we count Shinkai work on the opening for those two VNs), at least this movie has relatively happy ending even after several dramatic moments.

Amanchu - The first part has all female casts while the second season has additional male cast, and let's just say that the additional male cast along with the manga ending didn't bring good opinion to GL community. That aside, it has good scenery drawing, just like the previous author's work (Aria).

Tales of Zetstria - I only knew that the lore of the game was expanded in Berseria (The prequel), and it has controversy with the initial heroine (Alisha) was turned out to be the only guest character (ie decoy heroine) with she was replaced after some times, which make sense the anime tried to fixed the issue by giving more spotlight to Alisha throughout the series.

Fate Ilya 3 - Being Fate franchise it's inevitable that the author is required to write dark story with epic combat even though the series is just started as the magical girl parody featuring Ilya, and it really show in this season with alternative timeline stuff.

Love Live Sunshine - It's about the nine student who live in countryside need to face their school is about to be closed down, and after see Muse (The name of the group from previous Love Live) manage to save the school they decided to do the same with they call themselves as Aquors. While at first people see Aquors under Muse's shadow, eventually Aquors manage to prove their own identity. It should be noted that compared to Muse, Aquours is still around with they recently have the anime about one of it's member (Yohane) in alternative world with Muse themselves was disbanded in 2016.

That's all for what I can comment in regard of Summer 2016 release.
