Fantasy and Sci-Fi Anime to Look Forward to this Fall
I rarely just watch TV. When I have a show playing, I’m usually doing something else like writing, blogging or playing Breath of the Wild. So, I’ve gotten behind on my anime because that’s not something I can just listen to. It’s not in English. Well…it can be but I mostly watch subbed anime. Nothing against dubbed. I’m just used to hearing anime in Japanese. Would be nice if I could download them and watch shows during my commute. Netflix does that but not Crunchyroll.
Here are some fantasy and science fiction anime coming out this fall.
During my research, I found some season 2 fall releases for shows I’d never even heard of. I’ve included them here because I plan on watching the first season.
My Hero Academia Season 4
It took me a while to start My Hero Academia but now, I’m kinda obsessed with it. It seems this season will focus more on Deku. I love him but it looks like we won’t be getting a lot of Bakugo and Todoroki. I’m a little sad about that.
Release Date: October 12, 2019
Sword Art Online: Alicization – War of Underworld
I love, love SAO but I didn’t catch the first half of the Alicization arc mostly for the reasons above. Hopefully, I can binge it in a month and finish it on time for that October release date of the second half.
Release Date: October 13
Radiant 2nd Season
Never heard of this anime but the poster grabbed me. I’ll try to check out the first season before this one drops.
Release Date: October 2
Fairy Gone 2
Fairies possess and reside within animals, granting them special powers. By surgically removing and transplanting the organs of a possessed animal into a human, humans can partially summon the fairy and use it as a weapon. Eventually, such individuals were used for war, and were called “Fairy Soldiers.” After a long war, these soldiers lost their purpose, and had to reintegrate into society. Nine years after the end of the war, Maria is a fresh recruit of “Dorothea,” an organization dedicated to the investigation and suppression of fairy-related crimes and incidents. Even in peacetime, the government is still unstable after the war. Many criminals still have lingering wounds from the previous conflict, and there are terrorist groups bent on revenge.
Another anime I never knew about. Sounds interesting.
Release Date: Fall 2019
Since I couldn’t find a subbed version of the trailer…
“The story is set in a world where only the aristocrats are responsible for fighting against the monsters using their power called “Mana.” Melida Angele is one of the young aristocrats going to the training school, but she is unable to use the power. To find out her true talent, a young man named Kufa Vampeel is dispatched to serve as her tutor. But he also has a secret task to assassinate her if she has no talents.” (Crunchyroll)
I’m on the fence about this one. Looks interesting but it also looks like a harem anime and I don’t do those. I’ll check it out.
Release date: October 10, 2019
SFF and horror shows are my tops but I’ve gotten into a few sports or slice of life anime. Years ago, I caught chatter about Yuri on Ice. When I heard it was about ice-skating, I lost all interest, forgetting I loved Kuroko no Basket (basketball), Haikyu!! (volleyball), and Free! (swimming). I don’t remember why I decided to give Yuri on Ice a chance. It turned out to be a beautiful show.
This cooking anime Food Wars! is getting a new season this fall. I keep meaning to start that show but I never get around to it. Maybe this year, I will.
