I seem to be getting back into anime. I think about it a lot and spend a lot of time watching it now.
Back to a few years ago, I was watching anime all the time. Then suddenly, I lost interest after watching half of a show.
But now, the anime bug has bitten again. That is why I’m super hyped for some of the 2019 upcoming anime releases.
‘Natsu, Arashi and a few dozen others had gone to bed like any other night when they woke up… somewhere else. In this new post-apocalyptic future, mutated plants and animals lie in every direction and mankind is long extinct. Scientists of the past predicted that a meteorite would strike Earth and render the planet uninhabitable, so they devised a plan: they would cryogenically freeze five teams of young adults and have them revived by a computer when life is again sustainable. Seven people formed each team along with a guide specially trained to survive in the wild, and seven caches of supplies were left to be found. Together, the teams must try to survive in a new and hostile world, inadvertently finding the other survivors and clues to their circumstances along the way.’
We Never Learn
‘Yuiga is so close to obtaining a college scholarship that it’s maddening! Even though he’s one of the most hardworking students at school, he keeps getting beat by two girls who seem to be geniuses in certain subjects. And now he finds out that he’s going to have to help these two geniuses… Sounds easy for a couple brainiacs, right? Wrong!’
Boogiepop and Others
‘There is an urban legend that children tell one another about a shinigami that can release people from the pain they may be suffering. This “Angel of Death” has a name: Boogiepop. And the legends are true. Boogiepop is real. When a rash of disappearances involving female students breaks out at Shinyo Academy, the police and faculty assume they just have a bunch of runaways on their hands. But Nagi Kirima knows better. Something mysterious and foul is afoot. Is it Boogiepop, or something more sinister…?’
‘The anime will center on a group of young girls and their struggle as they aim to become Hula Girls.’
Hoshiai no Sora
‘The teen adolescence story revolves around the coming-of-age of boys in a junior high school’s soft tennis team, which is on the verge of shutting down. In the video above, the character Tōma Shinjō asks Maki Katsuragi to join the team for his vaunted abilities, and mentions a summer competition. Katsuragi asks for money in return for joining the team.’
‘One fateful day, all of humanity was petrified by a blinding flash of light. After several millennia, high schooler Taiju awakens and finds himself lost in a world of statues. However, he’s not alone! His science-loving friend Senku’s been up and running for a few months and he’s got a grand plan in mind—to kickstart civilization with the power of science!’
