Kaze ga Tsuyoku Fuiteiru isn't a manga but a novel

Oct 2, 12:22 AM by caio_brb

Where's the simulcast page gone to? I'm still missing what amazon is getting out this season...

Sep 25, 12:37 PM by DonTrumpolino

ooh nice, some of these look interesting i'll probably check them out

Hinomaruzumou!!!!!!!
Finally a bara anime made real! AAAAAAAAAAAAaa
Looking forward to it, hopefully the animation and doujins doesn't disappoint ;)

Also looking forward to Jojo part 5, SAO and Golden Kamuy



Hinomaru zumou isn't a bara anime series. It's a amazing sumo wrestling series

Sep 21, 12:47 PM by Onimaru775

Hinomaru zumou, jojos part 5 and Ace attorney s3

Sep 21, 12:46 PM by Onimaru775


Hyped for :

Yagate Kimi ni Naru (Should be good, after citrus we need this.)
Uchi no Maid ga Uzasugiru! (Masahiko Oota? oh boy, let's do this.)
Jojo no Kimyou na Bouken: Ougon no Kaze (Hell yeah.)

Very interested in :
SSSS.Gridman (Can't really see why it will fail)
Release the Spyce (I like the Namori's character designs and the show looks fun too.)



Eh, let's see what happens :

Kaze ga Tsuyoku Fuiteiru
Merc Storia: Mukiryoku Shounen to Bin no Naka no Shoujo
Anima Yell!
Goblin Slayer
Sword Art Online: Alicization
Irozuku Sekai no Ashita kara

Sep 19, 11:18 AM by hgeronimo

How did I skip over Himote House? Made by the Tesagure director, which means possible ad-lib shenanigans... give that to me.

Sep 19, 4:01 AM by gomennasai

Excited for Fairy Tail final season. <3

Sep 18, 10:25 PM by FateXBlood

Yu yu hakusho!!! \o/

This looks like a busy season, so I'm probably not going to finish some of those currently on the list. So let's go through this:

1, YagaKimi: my early bet on AOTS. I haven't read the manga, I'll probably wait it out until the anime finishes.
2, Tsurune: another runner-up for potential AOTS. Kyoani, archer boys, it can hardly go wrong. I expect it to be an entirely different beast from Free, since archery is not as tense as a competitive sport like swimming.
3, Release The Spyce: spies, ninjas, doing crimes, hot-blooded action and lesbians; this should be fun. On the other hand, it’s written by Takahiro. So let's hope it won’t delve into torture porn.
4, Anima Yell: the seasonal Kirara. That’s usually a good thing, but Harukana was this season and it was sadly a letdown :( So here’s hoping.
5, Irozuku Sekai no Ashita Kara: This one looks good, we’ll see. Reminds me of Just Because, but it’s probably going to be different, considering magic getting involved and such.
6, That slime isekai: same studio as Yamasusu, an isekai that’s not the usual power fantasy and from the weakest mob’s perspective, the trailer looks fun.
7, Gridman: I don’t know about this one, I’ll give it a 3 episode rule. Trigger is a mixed bag for me, especially lately. But Gridman is a classic tokusatsu series being reimagined, so I kinda want to root for them to succeed.
8, Tonari no Kyuuketsuki-san: I don’t know why this one particularly caught my interest, but maybe because the lead character is voiced by Tomita Miyu :D Otherwise, this one looks like comfort food.
9, Merc Storia: a regular fantasy – without isekai for a change – with a boy and his sidekick girl stuck in a bottle. This one looks cute, so I’ll check it out.
10, Sora to Umi no Aida: space fishing. Or should I say, fishing in space? Based on the premise, this one looks interesting, but the animation looked kinda wonky even in the trailer. On one hand, I’m curious, on the other hand, I’m fearing another Märchen Mädchen.
11, FLCL 2 and 3: still waiting for subs… :(

Probably not going to watch the next Jojo, because I’ve already read the manga and I want to do something about my backlog.

EDIT: Rewatching the trailers, I'd add another on the list:

12, Kaze ga Tsuyoku Fuiteru: another competitive sports anime, this one involving adults for a change and an international cast, I'll keep an eye on this one.

Sep 18, 9:08 AM by gomennasai

Fall looks better than expected, so hyped for Fairy Tail's comeback. Goblin Slayer will probably AOTS and Senran Kagura my guilty pleasure.

Sep 17, 11:55 PM by Gator

I'll probably ignore many of these anime but I'm pretty excited for Ace Attorney season two and the Juliet Boarding School one, it looks like that this is the only serious romance this season.

Sep 17, 11:47 PM by changelog

Lmao time flies didn't even realize that some shows are already on airing.

am i getting bored of anime? why do most of these seem uninteresting? same with the previous seasons too

Sep 16, 11:32 AM by SkyFullOfStars

As of now I had selected
1) Sword Art Online Alicilization Arc
2) Fairy Tail 2018
3) Jo Jo's Bizzare Adventure Golden Wind
4) Toara Majutsu No Index S3
5) Akanesasu Shoujo

5 more I will select based on performance and ratings.

Sep 16, 8:50 AM by Hikki77

I will watch:

FLCL Alternative
Radiant
SAO Alicization
Fairy Tail
Tsurune: Kazemai Koukou Kyuudoubu

I'm not holding any high hopes when it comes to SAO because well I find it dull, but heres to hoping this season is actually good. FLCL because I love the series and its bizarre traits, radiant because im shounen trash, Fairy Tail because im trash and Tsurune because it looks like a genuinely good sports anime

- To aru Majutsu no Index 3
- SAO Alicization
- Fairy Tail 2018
- Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken
- Goblin Slayer

Sep 16, 4:23 AM by Congintive

First I wanted to say that the new season looks interesting and is not full of stupid moe trash like the last one, but then I remembered that I said the same thing about the summer season.
