Winter 2018 anime has come and a bunch of animes is going to be released. I’m always looking forward to what is going to be released, hoping to find gems in them. I’ve actually skipped some shows (aka Boku Dake ga Inai Machi, a low key sleeper if you ask me) and found them to be spectacular. I’m looking forward to some suggestions that I might’ve missed.

Overlord II

Overlord 2

Season 2 of Overlord is here. This is your standard, the protagonist from the real world gets transported to a gaming world, with a slight twist.

When this first came out, I thought it was going to be a generic clone of Sword Art Online but I did enjoy how they handled the gimmick. The protagonist isn’t very good looking, he leads a group of bad guys technically. The plot, the animation, and the fight scenes were enough for me to back and take a look at the continuation.

I am intrigued by this anime, the premise is very interesting.

Juri Yukawa is a NEET who lives at home with her family. One day, her nephew and brother are kidnapped for ransom. Having only 30 minutes to meet the demands of the kidnappers, she decides to head out to their rescue by herself with a knife in hand when her grandfather uses a mysterious stone to stop time. They both set out to rescue their family but they soon realize they’re not the only ones who can move in this still world.

Looking forward to this anime, it has a very Durarara feel to it. Except that you know in the beginning these guys are players in the seedy underworld, and that they live in a city which is a criminal underbelly. I expect good things. Another light novel adaptation for those who are keeping track.

Nanatsu no Taizai: Imashime no Fukkatsu

Nanatsu no Taizai Imashime no Fukkatsu

I’m 50/50 about this show.

It’s a very standard action shonen fantasy affair with the good guys with complicated past fights the bad guys, with complicated past. I liked the 1st season but I didn’t like it enough to care if a 2nd season will happen. I’m reading the manga when I have the chance so the story is nothing new. I just want to see the animated action scenes.

Grancrest Senki

Grancrest Saga

This looked interesting and I’m always a sucker for fantasy action anime.

It’s in a world where demons attacked from another dimension. The people of the world gathered magickal items to fight off the invaders but they turned against each other trying to gain each other’s item.

Notable Mentions
Days: Touin Gakuen-sen!

OVA for last years soccer anime. I’m not into soccer but I did enjoy the protagonist.

Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch II – Handou

Code Geass, need I say more. I’m going to watch it.
