A very promising spring anime season is on the way, as well as many new titles and sequels to watch. We've put together a short list of 12 of the best anime of this spring that you shouldn't miss.
Violet Evergarden Movie
This will probably be the last creation associated with Kyoto Animation. "Violet Evergarden" revolves around the life of a former war heroine who seems to know nothing about the real world. As a writing girl, she tries to understand this world, love and many other feelings. The first season ended on a high note and most fans are eagerly awaiting the sequel. Well, there is finally a film that promises to be as good as its predecessor.
When? April 24
Fruits Basket 2nd Season
The main character, Torah, is a hardworking and sweet girl who lost both parents and was forced to live in a tent until she moves to a family, each member of which is cursed and is a zodiac animal. She has to help them. This is a classic shoujo that's sure to make you cry. The 2019 reboot was a huge success, not only because of the high quality, but also because the plot followed the original manga. Season 2 is coming soon and we are ready to have our hearts moved.
When? April 7
Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai? Tensai-tachi no Renai Zunousen (Kaguya-sama: Love Is War 2nd Season)
One of the best romantic comedies of the past year returns with the continuation of the showdown between the two main characters. The two arrogant tsunderes, Kaguya Shinomiya and Miyuki Shirogane, have a crush on each other, but neither admits it before the other. They both plan to bring each other to clean water, because the one who confesses his feelings first will obey the second.
In Season 2, they have one more final year of school to decide what happens in between.
When? April 11
Psycho-Pass 3: First Inspector
Gen Urobuchi writes the most compelling crime dramas and Psycho Pass is a perfect example. The utopian world of Psycho Pass revolves around the newly introduced criminal justice system known as the Sibyl. It determines the “Crime Rate” for each person, and every time it exceeds a certain limit, legal action is taken against him / her.
The anime's recent third season delved deeper into its philosophical and nihilistic themes, presenting us with much more than just a cat and mouse game like the previous two. However, the season ended on a rather unconvincing note. The good news is that he will now return with a new sequel in the form of a movie called Psycho Pass 3: The First Inspector, which will hopefully conclude all the unsolved mysteries.
When? March 27
Fate / stay night Movie: Heaven's Feel - III. Spring Song
If you have been into anime for a while, you should be very familiar with the survival game subgenre. But no matter how many new titles it offers, the Fate / franchise has always been one of the best of its kind. As the name suggests, all animes in this subgenre are usually violent and ruthless, but even in this aspect, Heaven's Feel is far more sinister than most other anime.
"Heaven's Feel" is the last film in the related trilogy.
When? March 28
No Guns Life Season 2
Madhouse Studio never disappoints its fans, even if they release an anime about a man with a gun instead of a head. The studio is known for some of the best anime shows of our time, but I wouldn't call "No Guns Life" one of his best works. However, this is still a one of a kind anime and anyone who hasn't seen it yet should definitely appreciate it. Those who watched the first season will see its unorthodox beauty again.
Koukaku Kidoutai: SAC_2045
The first film "Ghost in the Shell", which premiered back in the 90s, is still considered a classic. Now, nearly two decades later, Netflix is bringing back cyberpunk with a whole new anime series called Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex 2045. As the name suggests, this new series takes a huge leap in time and takes place in 2045. The economic disaster has affected the country a lot, and as usual, agents of the Ninth Division, including Cyborg Major Motoko Kusanagi and her Deputy Bato, are investigating cyber crimes.
Tower of God
"Tower of God" gained immense popularity when it was released as a web manga by Li Chen Hui under the pseudonym Slave In Utero. Since then, it has become even more popular and we will see its adaptation.
The plot focuses on a young boy who lives under a giant tower. Despite being isolated from the outside world, he lives a very fulfilling life with his best friend Rachel. But one day she disappears after visiting the tower. Rachel is the only person he has ever cared for, so to get her back, he follows in her footsteps. However, getting to it is not so easy, as new opponents appear at each level of the tower, which prevent him from reaching his destination.
When? April 1
Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru. Kan
The story follows two lonely people, the pragmatic Hachiman Hikigaya and the beautiful Yukino Yukinoshita, who, despite their different personalities and ideals, offer help and advice to others through their school's service club. They are helped by the cheerful and friendly Yui Yuigahama.
This season 3 will continue the previous events.
When? April 10
Sword Art Online: Alicization War of Underworld
Sword Art Online is now a household name in the anime community. As one of the first anime shows to introduce the world to the isekai gaming genre, its fanbase now spreads across the world. But since all of his RPG-centric themes have become so mainstream, he has also fallen prey to trends and criticism. Regardless, as die-hard anime fans, we are definitely looking forward to the latest arc of Sword Art Online: Alicization War of Underworld. Alicization has been the best arc in the series so far, especially when it comes to the storyline, so we can certainly expect its final season to be great.
When? April 26
The shounen-ai genre is often looked down upon for all its excessive eroticism. But Given stands out from it. Anime, on the other hand, depicts a realistic novel and draws in an open-minded viewer. Give this anime a chance and you will surely understand. In addition, Given stands out for its outstanding narrative and memorable soundtrack.
When? May 16
