And Okusama ga Seitokaichou season 2! I loved season 1, looking forward to S2!
I'll take a look at:

Brave Witches
Classicaloid
Keijo
Soul Buster
Vivid Strike

And do my usual, download ep. 01 of each series to sample them. Depending if I like the series or not, I'll:

a) watch every single episode when it comes out
b) massively download the entire season when it finishes then binge-watch it, or
c) not watch the series at all

So far my per-season average is 40% a, 50% b and 10% c. And from b, I have an anime backlog...
I always end up being TOO busy at Otakuthon. Only 2 cosplayers booked shoots with me, yet, in the end I managed to do 14. Fourteen photoshoots, with 2 cancellations! I had cosplayers from series/games such as Future Diary, Love Live, Touken Ranbu, The Idolmaster, Himouto! Umaru-chan, Legend of Zelda, Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress, Borderlands, Fairy Tail, Fire Emblem Awakening, Might & Magic Heroes 6, Naruto and Undertale. Most of these were old friends, but I met new people too. Time to get back to editing my photos! :)
