What anime are you looking forward to in 2019?
2018 proved to be an incredible year for anime. We saw Netflix taking the initiative by funding and releasing original anime to their roster, brand new series like Megalobox, Aggretsuko, and A Place Further Than the Universe stand out, and the continuing adaptations of popular manga like My Hero Academia and Attack on Titan got what could be their best seasons yet.
But even with the amazing year in anime we’ve seen from 2018, 2019 is shaping up to be an even bigger year to get excited for. Netflix has a slew of strong anime lined up for its streaming service, which, if 2018 was any indication, will include some genuinely strong hits. Some of these are directed by well known anime studios, with Madhouse–animators of the first season of One Punch Man—tackling a new anime adaptation of Boogiepop and Others. We’ll even see the return of classic shows in a new way.
The shonen scene is strong too, with prolific anime series in their prime once again returning in 2019. Shonen Jump, the birthplace of Dragon Ball, Naruto, One Punch Man, and My Hero Academia will be getting yet another anime adaption from one of their serialized manga. Not only that, but we’re finally going to see the return of popular gag manga artist ONE’S major anime series, One Punch Man and Mob Psycho 100. Fans have waited years to see the continuation of both of these series, and that long wait is finally coming to an end this upcoming year.
