Jun 22, 2016

Hi everyone! As much as we loved talking for three and a half hours at the onset of the spring anime season, we thought we'd try to keep things slightly more brief this time. And so here we are with Oh no, Anime!'s HOT TAKES for Summer 2016! As the name implies these are not necessarily the shows we're most excited for or are most anticipating (though there's some obvious overlap), but rather the shows that we think are the most 'interesting' with the information we have before the season begins proper. To see our thoughts on all of the Summer helpings please check out our blog post at

The opening song to this episode is Aqours☆HEROES by Aqours, the ending song is【Pa's Lam System × livetune】Like a Lady × Tell Your World by updy.
