Welcome back to our Seasonal Anime Guide for winter 2018 season! With about 56 new titles that begin airing in this season, we are making this guide to be as complete as possible to provide you with the broadest insight on what’s new this season.

The guide will be continuously updated as soon as new entries are available, and made in collaboration between the crews of KAORI Newsline and The Indonesian Anime Times. In addition, starting from fall 2017 season, KAORI will feature comments from more than one staff for some of the entries.

The guide is a preview, and as such, the first episode impressions do not represent the whole of the series and can not be treated as reflecting the series’ quality as a whole. We also do not use scoring system due to perceived bias; what’s 10 for harem lovers can mean 0 for yaoi lovers and vice versa. Please make an informed decision based on your reading.

Scroll down to or use the search function (Ctrl + F) to find the title you seek. Click on the title to read the impressions.
