The Good Stuff

First up, the good stuff – the series that’s the cream of the crop – what every anime fan needs to watch this season. If a show’s in this section, it’s pretty much guaranteed to be a must-watch.

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei: Tsuioku-hen

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei: Tsuioku-hen - PV1

An origin story for the characters in everyone’s favorite incest show? Instant perfect score.

Go check out The Irregular at Magic High School: Reminiscence Arc if you’re into incest. Rating: 10/10

Note: Obligatory entry to filter out at least 9/10 visitors.

Princess Connect! Re:Dive Season 2

Princess Connect! Re:Dive Season 2 - PV1

Hopefully we get more of that one yandere girl, she was pretty hot.

Give Princess Connect! Re:Dive Season 2 a watch if nice animation and cute girls are your cup of tea.

Leadale no Daichi nite

Leadale no Daichi nite - PV1

Seeing as the light novel is pretty damn great, filled with awesome moments with OP-elf waifu, hopefully the anime adaption will live up to the expectations. Though, honestly, the character designs doesn’t quite match what I’d expect from the light novel illustrations… Still, the first episode is looking pretty decently nice.

Check out In the Land of Leadale if you’re into chill isekai adventures. Rating: 8/10

Fantasy Bishoujo Juniku Ojisan to

Fantasy Bishoujo Juniku Ojisan to - PV1

Old man goes to fantasy land, and other old man goes to fantasy land…but as a pretty girl! So, basically BL, but with extra steps, then.

Go give Life With an Ordinary Guy Who Reincarnated Into a Total Fantasy Knockout a watch if traps in isekai sounds like something that’ll get your blood pumping. Rating: 5/10

Sono Bisque Doll wa Koi wo Suru

Sono Bisque Doll wa Koi wo Suru - PV1

Bisquit Dolls.

So, My Dress-Up Darling is definitely a thing, and it has got some pretty nice looking animation going on. Rating: 9/10

Tensai Ouji no Akaji Kokka Saisei Jutsu

Tensai Ouji no Akaji Kokka Saisei Jutsu - PV1

How to raise one’s dept– Er, I mean, something something, out of dept.

Turns out that The Genius Prince’s Guide to Raising a Nation Out of Debt is a thing. Rating: 7/10

Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru: Mittsu no Kiraboshi - The Animation

乙女はお姉さまに恋してる 三つのきら星 The Animation

Finally we’re getting the long awaited continuation to the cross-dressing action every anime-fan has been awaiting. Considering the amount of closet gays in the anime community, this one should be just perfect for a lot of trap-lovers out there. No homo, though.

Are you into traps? Well, give Otoboku: Maidens are Falling for Me 3 a watch, then.

Kimetsu no Yaiba: Yuukaku-hen

Kimetsu no Yaiba: Yuukaku-hen

More of that one popular anime, what else could you ask for.

The previous season of smol box-loli was pretty nice. If you agree, then give Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Entertainment District Arc a watch.

Sidenote: Interesting “localization” of the title: Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Entertainment District Arc

Shingeki no Kyojin: The Final Season Part 2

Shingeki no Kyojin: The Final Season Part 2 - PV2

So, here’s more of that one anime with the giants.

Honorable Mentions

Now on to the shows that seems less interesting, but might still be something to consider for those that are starved for yet more animated goodness.

Vanitas no Carte Part 2

Vanitas no Carte Part 2 - PV1

More closeted vampires sucking chuuni guy.

Totsukuni no Shoujo



Slow Loop

Slow Loop - PV1

Moe “slow-life” trash, but with fishing…

If moe recursion with fish sounds like your kind of jam, go and give Slow Loop a watch. Rating: 6/10

Akebi-chan no Serafuku

Akebi-chan no Sailor-fuku - 01

Pretty looking “coming of age”-trash.

If you’ve got a burning passion for sailor uniforms, then Akebi’s Sailor Uniform might just be the thing for you. Rating: 6/10

Genjitsu Shugi Yuusha no Oukoku Saikenki Part 2

Genjitsu Shugi Yuusha no Oukoku Saikenki S2 - 01

More of that sub par harem trash.

If you’re into harem with a side of political nonsense, then knock yourself out with How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom Part 2. Rating: 4/10



Idol trash.

Hakozume: Koban Joshi no Gyakushuu



Dolls’ Frontline


Almost certainly mecha-ish trash.

Sorairo Utility

Sorairo Utility - 01

Cute girls doing…golf? Eh, why not.

Following in line with the previous season, this season, too, includes a dedicated movie-specific section.

Blue Thermal



DEEMO: Sakura no Oto - Anata no Kanadeta Oto ga, Ima mo Hibiku






Trash of the Season

Here’s where the garbage dump of the season will get featured. Shows that were previously in “The Good Stuff” or “Honorable Mentions” might retroactively be relegated to this section if they turn out to be, in fact, trash.

Kenja no Deshi wo Nanoru Kenja

Kenja no Deshi wo Nanoru Kenja - PV1

Lol, no.

If a budget Dumbledore: The 2 FPS CG Animation sounds like something you’d be into, then do give She Professed Herself Pupil of the Wise Man a watch. Rating: 4/10


Do check out the review of the light novel as well!

Arifureta Shokugyou de Sekai Saikyou Season 2

Arifureta Shokugyou de Sekai Saikyou 2nd Season - PV1

If you hate yourself with a passion, then Arifureta: From Commonplace to World’s Strongest Season 2 will do doubt be right up your alley. Rating: 3/10

Shuumatsu no Harem

Shuumatsu no Harem - 01

Bottom barrel horny trash.

Rarely does one come across an anime that you just can’t help but literally facepalm at; but World’s End Harem is certainly one of those rare cases. Rating: 3/10

Note: Yes, I just reused the screenshot from previous season’s airing of the anime. It’s probably gonna be censored if it gets licensed and broadcast, but this is the how AT-X aired it previously.

Shikkakumon no Saikyou Kenja

Shikkakumon no Saikyou Kenja - 01

“Weakest crest”-bullshit harem reincarnation trash.

If you hate yourself, then consider giving The Strongest Sage with the Weakest Crest a watch. Rating: 4/10

Sabiiro no Armor: Reimei

Sabiiro no Armor: Reimei - 01

CGI abomination.

Give Rusted Armors a watch if animated abominations are your thing. Rating: 2/10

Sabikui Bisco


Rust Eater? More like, Trash Eater amirite.
