In this blog I will tell you my opinion on the anime series that are going to be released now in the summer of 2018 and which are my favorite ranked from least favorite to which I think is the best. By the way, this is my own personal opinion but if you don’t agree feel free to share your opinion in the comments, I would really appreciate it.
Top 11(what a number) new upcoming anime:
11. Chio-chan no Tsuugakuro- Comedy, Seinen
This is the story of a girl on her way to school who doesn’t get to school?
Well we don’t know much about this anime yet but the art style looks interesting and there appear to be a lot of different and interesting characters so I think I’m gonna check it out when it comes out and see what it will all be about.
10.Satsuriku no Tenshi- Adventure Horror Psychological Thriller
This series is about a 13-year old girl, Rachel who wakes up in the basement of an abandoned house *spooky* without any memories. While she tries to exit the building she meets a man covered in bandages, named Zack and together they will try to find a way out.
Well I think that this will be a good anime but it depends on how they will make it, I just hope they won’t try to make it too gore or crazy scary with too much blood and stuff…not that I don’t like scary stuff, but I just don’t find it that interesting. Still this could also be a really good anime if they just execute it right. So I have mixed feelings about this anime and that is why it’s not higher on my lis
9.Happy Sugar Life- Drama Horror Shounen
This series is about a girl, Satou Matsuzaka, most probably a pink-haired Yandere, who has a reputation of being easy. One day while she sleeps with this other girl *yuri yay*, Satou thinks that she found true love and swears to protect this feeling even if she has to steal or even kill.
So what can I say about this anime..it’s a horror, it has a pink-haired Yandere who is into girls as the main character so it must be at least good. Normally something like this would be higher on my list but this summer there are just too many great new series coming up.
8. Back Street Girls: Gokudolls-Comedy, Ecchi, Seinen
This anime is about a group of 3 yakuza who failed their boss, so they are forced to get a sex reassignment surgery in order to become female idols.
Yep, you heard that right, it’s a crazy idea for an anime at least I haven’t heard of something like that before but that is also why I want to watch, I also think it will be funny as heck because it’s almost too weird to not be funny.
7.Banana Fish-Action, Adventure, Drama, Shoujo
This series is about a 17-year old boy named Ash Lynx, who finally escapes from the guy who adopted and used him as a sexslave, “Papa” Dino Golzine. Unfortunately Papa gets his hands on the secret that drove Ash’s brother in Vietnam crazy. In the meantime Ashe meets a pure-hearted photographer named Eiji Okamura.
To sum up… what we do know about this anime is that it will have action most likely some explicit scenes and that there will be yaoi action…if we had yuri that also must be some yaoi. Even tho I’m not that big of a fan of yaoi I still think that this will be a great anime, the manga was really big in the past and the art style for this anime looks just too good. I’m really looking forward to checking it out.
6.FLCL Progressive-Action, Comedy, Mecha, Sci-Fi, Parody
This new season of FLCL basically takes place in the future after many years since the first season, in this future the war between the two entities, Medical Mechanica and Fraternity spread all across the galaxy and so it happens that the Mechanica attacks the town where Hidomi, a teenage girl, lives. She discovers a secret that she believes, it could save everyone, but the trick is that only her new teacher, Haruko, can unlock it.
Hear me out on this one, normally it would be at least in top 3 but in fact I haven’t watched the first season so I can’t be that hyped about this one as I am for Aot for example…but still I want to watch it so bad but i just need to find the time to watch the first season first.
5.Yuragi-sou no Yuuna-san-Comedy, Ecchi, Harem, Romance, Shounen, Supernatural
Most of the time if it is a harem then the plot is either boring or just not important at all, but hey this isn’t actually bad at all. This anime tells the story of a homeless teenager boy, named Fuyuzora Kogarashi who has the ability to see ghosts. In his search for a place to live he finds a very cheap house, that was formerly a hot spring inn, but now is haunted by a ghost, Yuuna . He decides to use his ability to banish the ghost but when he actually meets Yuuna he takes pity on her and changes his mind about the exorcism.
Yeah, I know it isn’t a five-star plot but hey it’s a harem and for a harem I think the plot is pretty decent and I would actually enjoy watching an ecchi rom-com this summer so it is in fact high on my list.
4. Tenrou:Sirius the Jaeger- Action Historical
This series follows the action of a vampire hunting group named the “Jaegers”. It takes place in 1930 in Tokyo, Japan and the main character is Yuliy, a werewolf who had his village destroyed by vampires. Together, the group engage in battle against the mysterious holy ark also known as “The Arc of Sirious”.
First of all, I must say that I am a big fun of this whole action/historical theme and this anime just looks so great i mean the art style is incredible and the plot seems interesting and I don’t know it just seems to be that kinda anime that gets you really hooked up and is just so fun to watch. In conclusion I think that it deserves to be this high on my list.
3.Muhyo to Rouji no Mahouritsu Soudan Jimusho- Action, Comedy, Mystery, Shounen, Supernatural
This anime is just about Muhyo and Roji, who are experts in magic law and send spirits either to heaven or hell so it’s basically a story about two exorcists.
I put this anime on my number 3 spot, mostly because of Animeman…if you don’t know who he is, well he is a very big youtuber who talks mostly about anime. OK, so he helped me build up the hype for this anime but the truth to be told I made some researches on the manga and it looks super interesting and cool. I like the character designs and I always enjoy a good Mystery-Supernatural anime. So I think that you should definitely give this anime a try.
2.Shingeki no Kyojin Season 3- Action, Drama, Fantasy, Mystery, Shounen
Well what can I say about the plot, it’s the third season of AoT so we all know what it will be about, but for those who don’t know what Attack on Titan is here is a quick synopsis: All humanity is afraid of Titans, those big human-like monsters you see all over the internet, so they build their towns behind 3 big strong walls. One day the first wall breaks and Titans get in. Eren’s mother is eaten by a Titan so Eren with his two friends Mikasa and Armin join the military force to fight the titans.
This is just a quick synopsis of the anime because I’m sure most of you already know about it but for those who never heard bout it you should check it out. I’m not saying anything else…I mean the hype isn’t as strong as for the second season but it’s still there so I don’t think it’s a surprise that I put it on number 2.
1.Grand Blue- Comedy, Seinen, Slice of Life
Iori Kithara is a freshman in college, who one day encounters his naked and loud upperclassmen in a shop. They later engage in alcoholic activities together and even if Iori wasn’t thinking it’s a good idea at first he quickly becomes the heart of the party.
What can I say about this series? It’s about a guy who learns that college isn’t exactly how it is believed to be, but still tries to realize his ideal college life. I don’t know about you but this is exactly what I would enjoy watching on a summer evening. It’s just the right plot for a light-hearted comedy series. I’ve also heard that the manga is hilarious so i have high hopes for this anime and therefore I gave it the number 1 spot.
Here is my top 10 upcoming anime of summer 2018, hope you found it interesting and don’t forget this is just my personal opinion based only on my preferences, so if you don’t agree tell me what you would change and why.
Thanks for reading!
