Any word on a simulcast list for this season? I usually refer to the ones MAL comprises so I know where I can watch each show legally.


I'm also wondering about that.... What happened ? Is there even gonna be a list? Damn!

On a second thought, I also put Boogiepop on my list. It's an adaptation of a legendary LN that has influenced a lot of authors, and the trailer seems cool. And it looks like it's in good hands.

Dororo seems pretty cool

Jan 1, 1:32 PM by becc_beccca

winter 19 has about 100 anime series, while the other seasons have nearly 300. anybody knows why?

Dec 30, 2018 3:25 AM by koshkarr

Very good anime, waiting next season :)

Dec 29, 2018 7:30 PM by Kevindemank

Mob Psycho 2 and Boogiepop will most likely be the spotlights of the season. i feel like next season is either weak or just really unknown and mysterious

Dec 28, 2018 9:25 PM by jonesdarline

Pretty short list of anime that I'm truly interested in this season. A handful at least .

Boogiepop
Mob Psycho 2
Dororo
Promised Neverland
Morose Mononokean 2
Doukyonin wa Hiza, Tokidoki, Atama no Ue
and I might try out Revisions

Good line up for me!

Lol, I just noticed this thread has been up for some days now. Anyway, my list is going to be very short this season of things I'm interested in:

Egao no Daika: Mecha with one of the leads voiced by Hanamori Yumiri, this can be potentially good, but I'm in a wait-and-see mode.
Dororo: One of my hyped shows this season. Tezuka adaptation, gives off Sekiro vibes, I'm in.*
Kemurikusa: Tatsuki is back! And coincidentally, his show will air in the same season as the new Kemono Friends (without him at the helm). This is going to be interesting.
Yakusoku no Neverland: I've been eyeing the manga for a while, just in time an anime adaptation to kick in. And the lead character is being voiced by none other than Morohoshi Sumire. Definitely not skipping this!
Endro!: Cute girls doing cute things in a fantasy world, original designs by Namori. Let's hope at least this'll going to be better than Spyce. At least this one shows more promise.
Kouya no Kotobuki Hikotai: This can be also potentially good, with good VAs and a great director. It’s definitely going to be wonky though, but that might be its charm.
Virtual-san Looking: Virtual Youtubers in anime form. This might be a disaster, but I’m definitely checking out.
Star Twinkle Precure: Magical girls in space. And another season of Precure. Yeah, I’m in.

I’m probably going to skip the new Kemono Friends though. On one hand, it has a good director at helm – he directed the Aikatsu movie after all. On the other hand, his hands are probably tied and is prone to executive meddling by Kadokawa. He’s probably there to take the blame if anything goes to shit. And it absolutely will.

EDIT:*I know that Dororo was long before Sekiro and it was very likely its inspiration, I meant my personal reason to watch this

MAL totally forgot one anime also coming this Winter 2019. (Its not even in the Winter 2019 page lmao)

The anime Flying Babies is coming January 10 with a new name. (Hulaing Babies)

Might only bother with MP100 s2 and Neverland tbqh. MP100 s2 is shaping up to be amazing. Neverland is stupid but fun, and the voice cast looks good.

Will watch Piano no Mori s2 eventually

Dec 19, 2018 2:16 AM by Claptrap

Mob Psycho 100
3D Kanojo
Boogiepopo wa Warawanai
Date A live III
Yakusoku no Neverland

Dec 18, 2018 3:55 PM by Farmaceut

Winter looks pretty great. It's only a preview but I can already see great anime coming this way.

Kaguya
Booegiepop
Mob Psycho II
Shield Hero
Promised Neverland
Dororo (maybe)

Looking forward to these.
