Every Monday, YouTubers Joey the Anime Man and Aki Dearest join forces to bring you The Anime Show, an hour that covers what’s hot, what’s not, what’s new and what you should be watching in the world of anime!

In the latest episode, Joey and Aki have a special guest on the show, fellow anime YouTuber SouL Animation, and the trio spend the time taking a look into some upcoming anime that fans should look into this Summer 2017 anime season!

Discounting anime series that have started last season (i.e before Summer 2017), Aki kicks things off by naming Kakegurui, which is a gambling-based anime that features some wickedly cool artwork and was adapted from the manga series of the same name (which Aki had already read all the way through!).

For Joey, his must-see new anime for the upcoming season is Gamers!, a colourful romantic-comedy based on the manga of the same name about some high school students who are into video games (despite not being very good at them). While he initially brushed it aside, Joey changed his mind when he realised that the light novel was written by Sekina Aoi, who had previously written one of his favourite light novels.

And lastly, SouL Animation is most looking forward to season 2 of Owarimonogatari, which is one of SouL and Joey's favourite anime series, and something both are looking forward to.

However, there is one anime that caught all three YouTubers by surprise and it is one written by the legendary Stan Lee! Titled The Reflection, the upcoming anime is a collaboration between Stan Lee and director Hiroshi Nagahama and it is shaping up to be something uniquely special!
