After a wildly successful first season and the recent conclusion of the manga, it is safe to say that fans are very excited about the continuation of the anime. Season 2 of Tokyo Revengers will be following the titular “Christmas Conflict”. It revolves around the impactful battle between the Tokyo Manji Gang and the 10th Generation Black Dragon. Takemichi encounters yet another obstacle on his path to saving the woman he loves by using his time-travel ability. Despite being weak, he is forced to get involved in several dangerous and even fatal situations using his strong determination and dedication to achieving his goal.

The Misfit of Demon King Academy 2

After reincarnating and getting adapted to human society 2000 years after his death, Anos was forced to make everyone recognize his power and defeat conspirators in Season 1. Season 2 picks up following this as we see him continuing his life at the Demon King Academy, but this time he has officially been recognized for his powers. However, his jolly days with friends can only last so long as new enemies appear to face him.

Bungo Stray Dogs Season 4

Bungou Stray Dogs Season 4

After a 3 year gap, Bungo Stray Dogs finally gets its 4th season adapted. The unique show which uses historical figures as inspiration for its characters and power system was an instant hit among fans as it showed something fun and different from the regular battle anime. The new season should be covering the aftermath of the Cannibalism Arc where we see a battle between Ranpo and a unique character capable of suppressing evidence. It will mostly also cover the Hunting Dogs Arc where we see the Armed Detective Agency gets framed as terrorists and chased by an extremely powerful military unit.

NieR: Automata Ver1.1a

NieR:Automata Ver 1.1a

The very popular and loved action role-playing game, NieR: Automata, finally gets an anime adaptation. While video games are notoriously known to be adapted poorly, A-1 Pictures, most known for making Kaguya Sama and Sword Art Online are overseeing it so there is plenty of reasons for fans to be excited. Its story follows a war between human-made androids who lack emotion and a machine army from another world who wish to occupy the world.

Don’t Toy With Me, Miss Nagatoro 2nd Attack

Don't Toy With Me, Miss Nagatoro 2nd Attack

A very valuable addition to the world of comedy anime, Don’t Toy with me, Miss Nagatoro will also be returning for its second season in winter. With its vibrant plot which follows a sadistic yet loveable girl constantly teasing and making fun of her senior, it is bound to be a very enjoyable ride filled with humorous scenarios as we see a romantic relationship bud between the two.

Spy Kyoushitsu (Spy Classroom)

Spy Classroom

Adapted from the Light Novel, Spy Room as the name suggests is a dynamic story that follows spies being trained for the purpose of being useful to the government. Our protagonist, Lily, who barely managed to pass her exams in the spy-training institute is stuck working with problematic and interesting individuals. With a combination of comedy and action, Spy Room is filled with an interesting ensemble of characters and has a high potential of being one of the underdogs of the season.

Trigun Stampede

Trigun Stampede

Trigun Stampede is a new anime project which tells us a modern retelling of the story of Trigun while adding several elements to it. With its eccentric characters and amazing action sequences along with the success of the original, this is destined to be one of the frontrunners in the new season. It is also being animated by Studio Orange, which is known for its great work with CGI so we can be sure of seeing a lot of explosive and exhilarating scenes.

Kubo Won’t Let Me Be Invisible

Kubo Won’t Let Me Be Invisible

Kubo Won’t Let Me Be Invisible is a very sweet and wholesome story that tells us the tale of a young boy who lacks presence and a girl who is the only person to notice him in class. While she enjoys teasing him, she also helps in living life to the fullest as she pushes him to step outside his comfort zone and be noticed by others. Through their constant interactions, they eventually even develop feelings for each other.

My Life as Inukai-San’s Dog

My Life as Inukai-San’s Dog

For the more adventurous fans who enjoy adult elements in their show, this anime is a perfect fit. While it revolves around the story of our protagonist who turned into a dog and becomes the pet of his beautiful classmate, the series takes a more perverted approach rather than going the wholesome route. It is very funny while being filled with Ecchi scenes.

My Life as Inukai-San’s dog is guaranteed to be a wild ride for anyone who plans on watching it.
