Because of how heavy the 2016 Anime Trailer Thread is, I decided to move the next season trailers who have supplementary news into their own discussion threads. It will make things more convenient for everyone. This thread will be recycled into the future Spring 2016 Trailer thread. I figure I need to work things much earlier especially since I have school work outside of the site.
In short, I'll be only posting Spring 2016 anime threads if they have an actual trailer and supplementary news with it. The rest won't be made and just be stored in the New Trailers of 2016 thread. Then, in March, we'll start adding everything with or without a trailer.
Images won't be resize until the last few weeks of winter 2016 anime season. We won't unpin the winter season for the same reasons. Usually, I keep things in BBCode. It's more convenient if I work ahead.
Note: All summaries are either from ANN, Crunchyroll, Neregate, MyAnimeList, or other sources. We don't take credit for making these summaries.

I don't want to be that guy, but watch Boku no Hero be the most overhyped anime of spring(this community is too predictable), even though in my opinion it does not deserve it. Spring season looks bad, aside from Jojo which saved spring.
No, your comment is fine. Yours is respectful compared to the comments I seen over at Youtube when folks criticized negatively at the top anime results for our community's Youtube channel. Along with unnecessary SJW stuff and hypocrisy due to the Kill la Kill video posted a month ago or so.
However, you can always vote at the best anime of the year or discussion of the month. Makes a difference. For the spring season, who knows. It might be My Hero Academia or something else, JoJo's, Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress, or Ushio and Tora. Winter 2016 season didn't have a hyped title. It's more balanced than the fall 2015 season.
Yeah, it's normal for folks to not find not enough shows each season. You can get burnt out.
As you probably know, I haven't completed the guide, just only adding trailers with full character promos. The rest will be added in March with or without a trailer.
JoJo always ruin a season, but then again someone trash is a other person treasure, and I bet people feel that way about some of the anime I like. Never read My hero academic, so it will nice watching the anime. What I can't wait is for sinbad adventure since like My hero academic I never read the manga, but I love the manga of magi. Although overall the lineup doesn't look interesting, but I might try some.
then again someone trash is a other person treasure
Definitely true there. If you want the full line up, AnimeList, Neregate, or Anichart has it right now. My apologies, I just haven't added everything. Just added the ones with both trailers and characters promos/or theme songs. In March, I'll add everything with or without a trailer.
So far, it's pretty good, some variety especially having a Yaoi one for a long time. Yuri is more common than yaoi.
I'm hoping to try Ace Attorney despite never playing the video game. Looking forward to Magi, Rage of Bahamut. Might try Sakamoto desu ga? So much more things to try out.
Got some news. Neregate posted their Spring 2016 guide. The one thing I won't add is God Eater. I'll add that to continuing shows section since it had a lot of hiatus and it's starting episode 10 this month. It's technically not a spring show.
Be aware, Neregate does make mistakes. Some of these shows might not air at all. In the past, I had to edit and remove shows from the guides especially OVAs due to them over counting.

Yep, looks like JoJo is this season's saving grace. Well and perhaps that Magi anime as well. I hear lots of people are into it, just couldn't get into it myself. Same with Hero academia. I would try to get into one of those, but JoJo's the only one on my mind at the moment with too many other continuous anime/manga to be followed lol
Edit: I'm going to retire tonight. Got to do school work.
Still Need to Add but no Trailers:
Most of these are children's shows that we don't add to the discussion threads.

Is this a Spring 2016 anime? I saw it has a simulcast by Crunchyroll for March 2016.

After a quick look through the list I think the anime that seem to appeal most to my interests are:
Endride (Hoping this will fill my Sword Art Online-shaped hole in my heart.) Haven't You Heard? I'm Sakamoto (Seinen plus comedy is not two things that, in my mind, would go together. So, I'm curious.) Kiznaiver (Sounds like the anime version of Sense 8.) Mayoiga (Lost, but on a bus!) Re: Life in a Different World From Zero (So that Groundhog Day movie Tom Cruise made.)
Like I said, this was just from looking at the list... I still have to watch the trailers to see if it really interests me or not.
Taka: It's a gigantic mech franchise. I haven't seen Macross myself. I know it's a big one.

Old Man Dream: Guess we don't get it. Make things short and sweet: Through some unintentional legal wranglings, Harmony Gold's owned international rights to the Macross name for decades and its Japanese developers, disgusted by the move, had not allowed...
Apr 9, 2021 10:22:58 GMT
Old Man Dream: ...many later Macross anime outside Japan because that would profit Harmony Gold. Macross was one of three anime titles used by HG in the 1980s to edit together the popular Robotech series popular with fans during that time. Under this deal...

Old Man Dream: ...later titles in the Macross franchise can finally come stateside with all involved parties finally coming to a truce over how to handle things with the Macross trademark and all later anime in the franchise associated with it.
Apr 9, 2021 10:26:05 GMT
Taka: I see. A global release will benefit it. Gundam did pretty good. The only few franchises that are only popular in Japan but not popular in the west - Yokai Watch comes to mind.

Master Menos: F for Respects. DMX did all his work while suffering from a drug addiction, and I almost never knew until a point. I hope his next life treats him far better.
