Yesterday, 3:25 AM by Spellar

Seems most of the juicy stuff will be in sequels which i'm fine with. Definitely gonna check out the Fruits Basket remake and i'll try a few of the lesser hyped shows and see if they get me hooked

Kabukichou Sherlock looks promising because I've been craving for a good mystery anime for some time now and since I know way too much about Sherlock Holmes in general, this is definitely a good addition. Carole & Tuesday sounds like a mature music-related anime and I have good expectations for it, as for Kimetsu no Yaiba it will be a 50/50 case depending if it's gonna be as good as the manga is, the animation looked lovely so it will most likely will fine, but since studios do tend to rush things out, I hope it wont end up turning like that as well.
Nonetheless, there is definitely, I think, many interesting shows in this bunch. Of course we have some good new seasons with Fruits Basket, Diamond no Ace and BSD which I will most likely not skip.
But the trailer for Sarazanmai was very artistic and intriguing, which makes me believe this anime might be something to look forward to as well, especially since this time it's also an anime done by Kunihiko Ikuhara (which also did Utena, Mawaru Penguindrum, Yurikuma Arashi).

Mar 18, 1:54 AM by Oterino

I'll try to watch (and hopefully succeed if college allows me) this ones:

- Hitoribocchi no ○○ Seikatsu.
- Kimetsu no Yaiba.
- Senryuu Shoujo.
- Gunjou no Magmel.
- Shoumetsu Toshi.
- Fairy Gone.
- RobiHachi.
- Kenja no Mago.
- Sarazanmai.
- Kabukichou Sherlock.

Although I don't know what will happen to Kabukichou Sherlock, it sounds strange to me that an anime that will be released in April (I guess???) receives almost no promotion at all being only two weeks before its release, there isn't even an official release date!

I suppose that if, for some reason, it is postponed/not released at all, I will replace it with another one from this list or with some anime that has already aired.

Mar 17, 4:17 PM by RottenOrange

Definitely going to watch:
Kimetsu no Yaiba
Bungou Stray Dogs 3rd Season
Sarazanmai

Might get to in another season
Jimoto ga Japan
Fairy Gone
Joshikausei
Kabukichou Sherlock

Need to get through the series but one day...:
Diamond no Ace

I need to catch up on the winter stuff too so summer is less hectic with playing catchup

Mar 17, 1:50 PM by BackstageMage

Shingeki no Kyojin Season 3 Part 2 and One Punch Man 2 are the sequels I'm gonna watch. Isekai Quartlet has my attention so going to give it a shot. That along with the second cour of Shield Hero and Dororo should keep me entertained for the first few weeks.

I have no idea about any of the non-sequel anime this season so I guess I'll wait for a few weeks and give a try to the ones that explode in popularity. Studio Ufotable seems to be doing an anime that's not related to Fate so I'll also have my eyes on that anime.

Mar 17, 12:32 PM by -InfiniteLoop-

I see that users feel a great interest in most of these series. Due to my lack of knowledge, I do not get much attention. Although I think I have these three:

Fruits Basket
Joshikausei
Carole & Tuesday

Mar 17, 7:53 AM by Rachiba

To watch list for spring:

One Punch Man Season 2
Shingeki no Kyojin Season 3 Part 2
Bokutachi wa Benkyou ga Dekinai
Nande Koko ni Sensei ga!?
Fairy Gone
Kono Yo no Hate de Koi wo Utau Shoujo YU-NO

Bungou Stray Dogs S3 hype!
Time for my favorite villain to truly show up in S3

Mar 17, 5:30 AM by Takao_21

Most of the sequels looks interesting to me: SnK Season 2, One Punch Man Season 2, Bungou Stray Dogs S3.

Also, I'm really curious about that new Fruits Basket and Fairy Gone show. Sewayaki Kitsune no Senko-san will bring a very fluffy Spring 2019.

Where are all the well-known seiyuus this season?

All of the seiyuus from this season are mainly those who have done supporting roles. Not that it's a bad thing, but just wondering.


Kimetsu no Yaiba have Natsuki Hanae (Kaneki, Arima Kousei) and Matsuoka Yoshitsugu (Kirito, Souma), Uchida Yuuma and Uchida Maya will play role on Mix:Meisei Story, also mention SnK comeback with Hiroshi Kamiya (most popular male seiyuu) and Yuki Kaj also Mamoru Miyano on Bungou Stray Dogsi. idk what do you mean as "all of seiyuus this season just do supporting roles"

Blockbuster Spring Season incoming! It’s a pity that Chihayafuru 3 is no longer among this list but there’s still aplenty to look forward to.

Definitely watching:
Shingeki no Kyojin Season 3 Part 2 is obviously my most hyped show for the Season but I’ll not be keeping up with it weekly for I’m aware of what’s to come. I’ll just watch the previous three Seasons in the meantime and then binge it once the 10 episodes are out!
One Punch Man Season 2, here’s to hoping J.C. Staff will be able to go deliver the best of this like Madhouse did earlier with the 1st Season. No trailer or teaser yet though is a little worrisome. I’ll keep up with this on a weekly basis.
Bungou Stray Dogs Season 3. I haven’t actually watched the previous two Seasons of this franchise but I plan to finish it by the 12th of April so that I can keep up with weekly. It’s a Studio Bones’ masterpiece after all, it ought to be absolutely breathtaking!
Fruits Basket (2019), eagerly looking forward to this one! I haven’t watched the original series by Studio Deen not I’m a fan of reverse-harems in general but I don’t need to see that to know or like particularly like the sub-genre that this will be some great stuff!
Isekai Quartet, a very interesting mini-show this. I’ve always wanted to see different anime characters from various anime merging together in a particular setting and this right here is exactly that! Looking forward to this!
Carole & Tuesday, this is probably second on my list, after Shingeki no Kyojin, that I’m most forward looking forward to! Amazing Staff(special mention to Watanabe Shinichiro) and Cast Members behind the workings for this one and there’s an extra bit of effort in that department too, I mean the singers of the Op and ED. Also, that PV was mesmerising!

Most likely watching:
Kimetsu no Yaiba. Looks really cool and majority people are saying it’s going to be a dime so I’ll at least give this a shot!
Fairy Gone. P.A. Works is one of my personal favourites among anime studios but there’s obviously more to this that has intrigued me. I’m not quite sure what exact to be fairly honest but the premise of the show is undoubtedly one. Hopefully, there won’t be too much unsightly CGI use.
Kono Yo no Hate de Koi Utau Shoujo YU-NO. I’ve heard a lot of positive things about this upcoming project. I haven’t gone through the visual novel or watched the earlier Hentai adaption of it, but I’ll keep up with this nevertheless.

Uncertain to Watch:
Senryuu Shoujo, looks like it’ll be really nice and touching Romantic show, as such I’m more than likely to keep up with this.
Kenja na Mago, seems like a Harem Isekai show so not particularly excited. Just keeping an eye on this for now.
Bokutachi wa Benkyou ya Dekinai, seems like a Harem-focused show so again not particularly excited. Synopsis promises a fun watch though, so I’ll probably keep up with this.
Midara no Ao-chan wa Benkyu no Dekinai, another anime featuring Studies. I despise studying too so this might just end up being my guilty pleasure watch. Mildly looking forward to this.
Shoumetsu Toshi. Madhouse show so a big plus there but the heavy focus on CGI is a big turnoff for me. I’m all in if the story delivers though.
Hitoribocchi no Seikatsu, seems like a Slice of Life show that I’d love to watch weekly, but I’ll not be completely sold on this until I watch an episode of this.
Sarazanmai, talk about an unusual premise xD. I’ll decide whether or not to keep up after watching an episode of this.

The next season looks a lot better than the current one, didn't think so many shows would catch my interest, tbh.
I'm most excited for Bungou Stray Dogs. Finally <3

The news is based on Zoku Owarimonogatari schedule. The official SAO III didn't mention anything regarding to it officially yet (might announce on March 27, the final broadcast of the season). So it's possible that it would really take a break or change the time of broadcast (just my random guess). It's not official, so I didn't say it WILL take break.

And the continuing anime from Winter 2019. (Dororo, Sword Art Online III, Captain Japan)
I don't know what SAO III will do, though, as TV broadcast of Zoku Owarimonogatari (6 selection of old eps. starting on April 6, followed by 6 Zoku Owarimonogatari TV eps. starting on May 18) will be airing on the same timeslot on the same TV channel next season.

Also, is Captain Japan that you mentioned Captain Tsubasa (2018)? If so, it will be replaced by TV broadcast of King of Prism: Shiny Seven Stars movie series next season.

SAO III is taking a break huh. One less anime for me to watch next season...actually...it's good that it will be taking a break next season! As long as it doesn't overlap to the Summer season, we're good. Keep the summer season free from the big guns...

And Captain Japan is just my meme name for Rising of the Shield Hero. Because you know. Captain Japan, Captain America...Captain America uses a shield, MC of Shield Hero has a shield...yeah...don't mind me...
