2 My Hero Academia Season 3

This series is really good!

I love it zoo much

Season 3 has all this drama and action in it and the 2nd trailer was full of action.Some said season 1 and 2 was good but, when the watched the trailer for season 3, they were like 'this will be better'.

The best anime I have ever qatched

3 Fate/Extra Fate/Extra

Can't wait to see how Studio Shaft adapts this Fate installment. From the character trailers and the PV, the anime looks to be visually appealing with vibrant and bright colors all over. I was unfortunately let down by Fate/Apocrypha's frequent animation errors, so hopefully Shaft does more justice to the Fate Extra than A-1 Pictures did for Apocrypha (I mean, I actually do like A-1 Pictures, but I haven't seen a Fate anime adaptation as riddled with animation errors since the 2006 Stay Night adaptation). - ModernSpongeBobSucks

4 Sword Art Online 9: Alicization Beginning Sword Art Online 9: Alicization Beginning

I'm DEFINITELY on board for Project Alicization. Can't wait to see Eugeo and Alice in animated form. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

5 Code Geass: Lelouch Of Rebellion (2018) Code Geass: Lelouch Of Rebellion (2018)

It's lelouch of the resurrection

Hope the don't ruin the best and most satisfying ending ever

Its jut too op

Best anime of all time

The manga has been adapted into an anime series produced by A-1 Pictures and Satelight, which began broadcasting in Japan on October 12, 2009. Additionally, A-1 Pictures and Satelight have developed seven original video animations and an animated more.


The series will end with this. But don't get your hopes high for a great ending. If you've read the manga, you know what I mean. - Undistinguished

Ready but kinda sad that its ending

7 Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online

I am legitmently excited for SAO A:GGO for it will remove plenty of flaws from the original. New characters that will replace Kirito, Asuna and Sinon. A new director who has expierence playing games or at least knows what he is doing. Characters that seems interesting. I just hope that this turns good because I have enough of Kazuto Kirigaya and his godly perfection that anyone who challenges him is instantly defeated. - YourWaifuSucks
