While 2015 had it's fair share of good anime, 2016 is shaping up to being a monster year. It is also the year of Sequels. Let's take a look ahead at some of the potential big hitters!

1. Berserk (2016)

More Berserk is always a good thing, especially when a new arc is being adapted. The previous two anime focused on the Golden Age Arc. While that arc is all well and good, the latest anime is adapting the Black Swordsman Arc, which sees Guts hunt down God Hand...

2. D-Gray Man (2016)

It took eight years to get here, fans! The anime is back and will be adapting the Alma Karma Arc, so long time fans may want to re-watch the previous series.

3. One Piece Movie - GOLD

The movie, which will premiere in Summer 2016, is the third under the title One Piece Film after One Piece Film: Strong World (2009) and One Piece Film Z (2012). The hints o the Movie was supposed to be revealed after the One Piece Special - Adventures on Nebulandia Island last December, but it has been delayed until later.

4. Kuroko no Basket Movie 1: Winter Cup Soushuuhen - Kage to Hikari

First of three compilation films of Kuroko no Basket. It is said that it will be aired on Sep 03rd, 2016.

5. Attack on Titan 2nd Season

Anime fans had to wait three long years for this. Having to suffer through two live-action movies and a chibi spinoff while dodging spoilers from manga readers made the journey even tougher.

6. My Hero Academia

My Hero Academia is not as over-the-top and zany as One Punch Man, but it is still a fun and unique Japanese take on superheroes. The large cast and unique powers, along with good writing, could be a hit with international fans.

7. Yu-Gi-Oh!: Dark Side of Dimensions

If Digimon could make a comeback, so can Yu-Gi-Oh!. Like Digimon, the series was insanely popular in the late '90s and early 2000s, but died down a bit throughout the years. However, Shueisha and Konami are celebrating 20 years of Yu-Gi-Oh! by bringing the original characters back for a theatrical movie.

8. Ajin

Ajin has become popular in part to it's characters (which are not the most likeable bunch), and it's play on immortality. Polygon Pictures is opting to adapt the manga as a movie trilogy and a TV series.

9. Durarara!!x2 Ketsu

Ketsu is the third and final arc from the Durarara!!x2 project, and will adapt the rest of the first. Durarara!! light novel series. A sequel light novel series titled Durarara!! SH began in April 2014, but only has 3 volumes so far.

10. Magi: Adventure of Sinbad

Originally released as a 5 episode OVA series, Adventure of Sinbad is getting remade as a TV series. The series focuses on a young Sinbad and his journey towards becoming the King of Sindria.

11. Bungou Stray Dogs

This has a chance to be the sleeper hit of 2016. The characters are based on real life Japanese authors, but they have supernatural powers and solve grisly mysteries. Bungou Stray Dogs has the right amount of crazy and tragedy for the seinen crowd.

12. Fairy Tail Zero

Go 105 years in the past to learn the events behind the founding of the Fairy Tail guild. People who are familiar with Fairy Tail, or have the perception that the series is just a mindless action and ecchi show, will be surprised with Zero's strong story telling.

13. Naruto: Shippuden - Itachi Shinden ~Hikari to Yami~

Itachi is going to star in a TV adaptation of a light novel that is all about him. The story goes into depth about his goal of becaming the Uchiha clan's first hokage.

14. Fairy Tail Movie 2

Get ready for "the series biggest shocker ever! A development you absolutely can't miss!!".

15. Fate/Stay Night Movie: Heavens Feel

Movie Adaptation of the Sakura route of Fate/Stay Night.

16. Steins;Gate Zero

Prequel to the Movie Steins;Gate: Kyoukaimenjou no Missing Link - Divide by Zero. It is about an alternate ending to the Steins;Gate....

17. Shokugeki no Souma 2nd Season

Sequel to Shokugeki no Souma anime. The second season starts off with the finals of the Autumn Elections.

18. Nanatsu no Taizai (2016)

Sequel to Nanatsu no Taizai anime. The announcement did not specifically said whether it was an sequel but lets hope it does.

19. Yowamushi Pedal 3rd Season

Sequel to Yowamushi Pedal Grande Road (2nd Season). The first Season of anime aired on Fall 2013 and season two on Fall 2014 and it is safe to assume that the Yowamushi Pedal 3rd Season may be aired in Fall 2016.

20. Arslan Senki 2nd Season

Sequel to Arslan Senki anime. The Heroic Legends of Arslan will continue in the second season , in his fight to reclaim the throne of Pars from the the one who proclaimed himself the only legitimate heir to the throne of Pars: Hermes, the knight of Silver Helm.

21. Rewrite

Kotarou Tennouji a high schooler equpped with the superhuman ability to permanently rewrite any part of his body to multiply his strength or speed is naturally drawin to the supernatural , after one special meeting with the President of the Occult Club , Akane Senri leads to Kotarou reviving the Occult Club with four othe members. And throughtout their adventures, kotarou will enevitably encounter a fate that only he might be able to rewrite.

22. ReLIFE

The story follows Kazaki Arata , a 27-year old jobless man. His life changes after he met Yoake Ryou pf the ReLife Research Institute , who offered him a drug that can change his appearance to a 17-year old and become a subject in an experiment for one year. Thus, he begins his new life as a high school student once more.

23. Tales of Zestiria the X
