Spring - Fall 2018 Anime Recommendations


Hello All!


I am looking for new stuff to watch from recent releases (Spring - Fall 2018). I have not been able to catch up with the new releases, aside from the obvious Goblin Slayer, and would appreciate new stuff.

I am open to any genre.

Thank you!


PS: For anyone that is knowledgeable in anime expos, events, stores, etc: Any events occurring in Italy or England in the following months would help 😣

My faves from that time period: Megalobox, Golden Kamuy, Hinamatsuri, Planet With, Gegege no Kitaro, Asobi Asbobase, Hinomaru Sumo, Xuan Yuan Sword Luminary, Ms. Vampire who Lives in my Neighborhood.

If you're willing to go back to the winter of 2018, watch Yuru Camp & A Place Futher then the Universe which are probably my favorites for the whole year

SSSS.Gridman is friggin awesome.

Episode 1 is 90% references to the live action shows of the tokusatsu genre (big dudes/mechs vs. Kaiju/giant monsters) so don't be put off by any clunky CGI or ugly monster designs, they entirely did that on purpose. Episode 2 onwards really embraces the fact that it's anime and you get some rather cool stuff going.

Obligatorily mentioning that this is definitely not the coolest thing I could have shown off lol.

So the best anime that's come out in that period, we believe to be High Score Girl. It's a romance series about some kids growing up in the 90s (and when we say that, we mean that they actually grow up. It spans the entire 10 year time period) and playing arcade games like Street Fighter II, Slaughterhouse, Virtua Fighter, and Streets of Rage. And yes, they actually licensed the actual games, there is proper gameplay footage when they're playing, and they show off actual glitches and infinite combos and stuff. It's one of those anime where you really need to get to episode 3. The first two are definitely good, but 3 is where you really see what the series is all about.

Other than High Score Girl, we'll recommend Hinamatsuri (a heartwarming comedy about a lazy psychic who everyone hates, and a bunch of other, far more endearing characters), Megalo Box (a fairly standard underdog story done really well in a cool setting), Hisone to Maso-tan (a girl joins the air force and they give her a pet dragon instead of a plane), and Bloom into You (one of the rare well done yuri romances).

Of these, Bloom into you is still airing, and High Score Girl is getting a 3 episode finale in March 2019.

      I just noticed that the Humble store is currently selling a light novel/book bundle with a bunch of Kodansha's "Monogatari" stuff by Nisio Ishin (aka "NisiOisiN").  If you're a Bake/Nise/Etc fan you might want to check it out.
      (Not sure if this is quite the right category for this topic but I didn't see a light-novel category sooo... <plunk>)

      you know how hunter x hunter has a way of making the fights super technical and SMART as well as filled with super natural things and super powers? I'm trying to find an anime like that but i havent been able to!
      Growing up, Naruto gave me similar vibes, the fights also had depth and intellect and strategies within strategies all being explained while they tell you what the characters are thinking. 
      Most fighting animes dont have that and thats mainly why i LOVE hunter x hunter so much. If anyone knows any similar animes please share! unh

      So I've been working on a chatbot based off of Nezuko from Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba. I think she's a fascinating character, and I want to give fans of the anime and manga the chance to talk to her since she doesn't talk too much on her own. Currently, I'm in the training phase so I've been programming her with questions users may or may not ask her. The only problem is I'm only one guy and I'm out of ideas of things to talk to her about, so I'm looking for community input. Keep in mind, she won't just be pre-programmed. She's going to be a mix of programmed responses and machine/deep learning based AI so she will, in essence, have a mind of her own.
      If you had the opportunity to talk to Nezuko, what would you say to her or ask her? It could be either questions or topics you'd want to discuss with her.
