Autumn 2018 – Upcoming Anime

Hi guys! With the Summer season now on its last leg, I thought I’d take a look at the shows from the upcoming autumn season and see what’s going to be airing. There seems to be a lot of fantasy but we’ll see which are worth the watch when they air. For now, here’s a list of some of the shows that will be airing.

I have cut out any leftovers from the summer season and any sequels or spin offs of existing shows so Fairy Tail, Tokyo Ghoul and the likes do not have a spot here. And as always, the shows are listed alphabetically and the synopses are all from LiveChart. These are not shows I will be watching but simply of shows that will be airing.

  1. Goblin Slayer and Irozuku Sekai no Ashita kara are among my highly anticipated anime this season while also looking forward for the return of giants Tokyo Ghoul:re and SAO especially my sentimental favorite Fairy Tail despite of too much cliche.

    • Ooo nice! I don’t think I’ll be watching Goblin Slayer or Irozuku simply because I won’t have the time. Ahh same here! I’ve never watched Tokyo Ghoul but definitely looking forward to SAO and Fairy Tail. 😊
