One last round-up style article before we really get underway for the year, I thought now is the opportune moment to talk about some anime that we think should be worth checking out at some point this year. This article will contain a few new titles, as well as a bunch of new series.

Right, with that introduction out of the way with, read on to see if your most anticipated anime of 2019 has made our list – and if not, come tell us!
Magical worlds and video game elements combined, it’s one of a plethora of the video game anime genre. However, just because there have now been a lot of them, don’t let that distract you from what separates this one from the others.

Halloween isn’t hugely celebrated over in Japan, as it’s mostly a Western tradition. It’s slowly becoming more and more adopted over the years, complete with its own bad outcomes. However, Halloween is still a day to celebrate, a tradition we’ve held dear to us for many a year. Our own version of Halloween has changed over recent memory, becoming less about the tradition and more about wearing costumes and generally having a good time. This Halloween, remember to keep safe – And check out some Halloween episodes in anime, a medium the holiday doesn’t get a lot of exposure to.

If that’s whetted your appetite for the surprise ahead, then read on for more.
