Without a doubt, there is a lot of wonderful anime series released this year 2019 which are geared to become the latest sensations. These series are a combination of new shows and shows which are returning with a new season. In order to save you some time in deciding which shows to watch, we decided to compile the top ten anime 2019.
1. One Punch Man Season 2 (2019)
Still one of the most anticipated anime series of all time and its second season started in April 2019. One Punch Man continues the story of the strongest man in the Universe - Saitama. In this new season, we can expect to know more Heroes who Saitama will eventually be acquainted with. The same as season one every Episode in this new season will prove that nothing could beat Saitama and that he still could beat anyone with just "One Punch". The exciting part is how he will be able to do this and under what circumstances. And I am a personal fan of One Punch Man that's why I placed it first. But, I believe that many would certainly agree with me on this.
2. Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba
This anime show is a Shonen tale which highlights the lives of the two characters Tanjiro and Nezuko. The story is unique enough to have piqued the interest of many anime viewers. The setting is at old school Japan and one of the great parts is it involves one of their known culture which is the existence of demons. The overall art style if good and unique though I personally think that it could have been better. But since it comes from a popular Manga story and is brought to us by a great studio, there is much more to expect from this new anime series. And by far, with the current 5 episodes since writing this article, it had met all expectations.
This list of Best Anime 2019 would not be complete without Demon Slayer.
3. The Promised Neverland
Considered as the most anticipated horror show of the year, The Promised NeverLand received a lot of welcoming arms from anime viewers. In this show, there are 3 protagonists who are orphans - Emma, Ray, and Norman. Aside from being a horror genre, the anime also has an emotional side without leaving its creepy genre. If you are a fan of Death Note, you will surely appreciate this show. The protagonists are kids who are 11 years old which makes the anime intriguing and will surely leave you at the edge of your seat. The anime is just purely amazing and will surely be a big Hit.
4. Mob Psycho 100 II (2019)
For those who are already a fan on this show, Mob Psycho 100 Season 2 will not disappoint you. It became better, funnier and more exciting. Another commendable side of this show for 2019 is its creative designs, is sharper and still very unique. The action scenes are still top-notched plus, they have added a somewhat horror angle which actually played well and added more weight to certain scenes. It is also great to note that in every episode in this season, viewers will see how the protagonist grows as a person together with his buddy reigen which makes the story of this show richer and deeper - not just all action. So watch it now and most likely you will agree that none of your time is wasted on each episode of Mob season 2.
5. The Rising of the Shield Hero
This new isekai anime is set to be one of the most popular in 2019. Not only because of its genre which most anime lovers appreciate, but a lot of manga readers are also looking forward to its anime adaptation. The main character is Naofumi Iwatani who was sent to a new world where he became a legendary hero. And yes, you get it right, simply reading the title you might have also guessed that his power or ability has something to do with a shield, but not just an ordinary shield but a Legendary one. The good thing about the character of the protagonist is it's very related to an ordinary young guy who is very optimistic and happy go lucky.
6. Fruits Basket (2019)
There is just nothing but good praises for this anime that is why we can expect that Fruits Basket 2019 remake will be another hit. This new anime is the animated version of the whole manga series which actually have ended several years ago. There is something special about this anime that makes it easy to fall in love with. It could be due to the charm of the characters and also the story itself. The visual is pretty impressive so any viewers could easily appreciate it and you just can't stop admiring an anime with great visuals - characters and backgrounds are crisp and detailed. It adds up to the whole anime experience. So if you have watched it before, you might want to watch it again with whole new improved visuals.
Dororo is a story of Hyakkimaru, one of the main character who is on a journey to free himself from a curse together with Dororo. In order to do this, they have to find some demons and kill them. Thus, you will surely be entertained with the brilliant action scenes when Hyakkimaru is dealing with the demons. The whole story is emotional, brutal, serious yet compelling. In general, it still a great action anime series, but some says that it is quite predictable at times. I did mention brutal right? If violence does not bother you, go watch this anime. The best thing about this anime is its a classic story involving the dark side of humanity. You will constantly be on the lookout on how the two main characters manage their experiences and deal with their tragic past.
8. Kaguya-Sama: Love is War
Kaguya-Sama is already a great manga series and its great to see that the anime adaption was able to make it even better. It's a young love comedy show which most of us could surely relate making it fun and entertaining to watch. With this type of anime, voice actors play a big role in its success and thankfully they were able to do so. The anime was able to show an interesting love story of the 2 main characters without introducing too much physical lust which for me is a big plus. If you are searching for a comedy anime to light up your day, this is exactly what you are looking for. Even though the whole thing is for fun, it also has a good splash of serious scenes which will surely touch your heart and make you understand the characters even more.
9. Attack on Titans Season 3 (2019)
For season 3, the creators of this anime continue to amaze us with amazing wolrd building and character development. Among the things to watch out in this season is the backstory of Grisha and the character development of Eren. I believe that the peak of its development happened at the end part of the season. Armin's development is pretty quite excellent as well, he now plays a bigger role in their fight for humanity. Something would happen to their captain Erwin, you might have an idea on where its leading but I won't tell exactly what it is. That's something for you to discover by watching the anime. It's certainly an epic moment in this anime series.
The actions scenes and fights are well executed an it was made even better with nice music and art. Everything in the choreography to character design and movements was excellent. I would also say that this season has an amazing soundtract that would easily grab your attention.
10. Bungo Stray Dogs S3 (2019)
In the season 3 of Bungo Stray Dogs we get to learn more about Chuuya and Dazai. You will know how they met, and you'll discover more about Chuuya's power. Another good thing about this season is the additional of good flashbacks which help complement the story of the season. You will be surprised that you'll be loving all the characters in this season including the villains. I find the villains interesting as well. I would say that this is a great season for Bungo Stray Dogs. Overall, this anime has a nice story with a good punch of humor with great soundtrack and animation.
