Winter 2017: Tabris’ Anime List


The winter anime season of 2017 is just around the corner, so I decided to share a list of the anime series, which I plan to give a try. I know for sure that some of them will be dropped after the first couple of episodes, but I hope it will be just a few shows and a lot of them will be really interesting and entertaining. So, here we go:
