Winter 2021 was stacked with many amazing shows like Attack on Titan, Horimiya, and The Promised Neverland, which satisfied many anime fans. Sadly, all good things must come to an end, and with the Winter anime season coming to a close, it’s time for the next batch of anime series to finally be released.
Without further ado, here are some of our top picks on what Spring 2021 has to offer, in no particular order.
Shaman King (2021)
Did you watch Shaman King growing up as a kid? If you did, you’ll be glad to hear that this classic series will be back in action, with a remake that serves as a faithful adaptation of the original manga series.
For those who don’t know what Shaman King is, the series is about a boy named Yoh Asakura who aims to become the Shaman King by challenging other Shamans–special individuals who can communicate with the unseen, like ghosts, spirits and gods. I’m sure many of you out there have high expectations for this remake, and hopefully it won’t disappoint!
Adapted from a popular manga, Ijiranaide Nagatoro-san is definitely one of the most hyped-up series set to be released in Spring 2021. The story revolves around Hayase Nagatoro, a high school freshman who loves to tease and torture her introverted older male senior.
What is her motivation behind her actions and why does the latter put up with her? Tune in to this slice of life comedy-romance show to find out the truth!
Fumetsu no Anata e
Adapted from a manga written by the author of A Silent Voice, Fumetsu no Anata e is another highly anticipated title on this list. The story follows ‘It”, a mysterious immortal being with no emotions nor identity, and who is able to take the form of those who have a strong impetus.
One day, ‘It’ in the form of a wolf meets a lone boy, who unfortunately passes on due to his critical state of health. ‘It’ then acquires the form of the boy and sets off on a never-ending journey in search of new experiences, places, and people. Uncover the mysteries surrounding ‘It’ when the series releases on 12 April!
My Hero Academia 5th Season
After one year on hiatus, the popular Shounen Jump series My Hero Academia is back in action. This season is all about the battle between the top 2 first-year hero classes, Class 1-A and 1-B. Fans can expect to see a new group of characters take center stage in this jam-packed and action-filled season.
Will the heroes in training be able to surpass their limits once again? The answer will be revealed on 27 March.
Fruits Basket: The Final
The final season of this popular remake will reveal more about the mystery of the Zodiac Curse and the Sohma family. We’ll get to see these beloved characters slowly move forward and unlearn their childhood traumas, as everything around them changes with the seasons.
It’s sad to see such an amazing series come to an end, but we’ll be able to watch it all begin to unfold on 6 April!
Zombieland Saga: Revenge
Zombieland Saga introduced fans to an idol group with a twist: they’re all zombies! The original series showed us the heart-warming and fun journey of a group of unlikely idols, and we’ll get to see more of them in the new season.
This time, the girls attempt to save Saga Prefecture while trying not to let their comedic antics get in the way. Along the way, fans can also look forward to another amazing soundtrack from this unusual idol anime!
What else can we expect from Spring 2021? Will it be on-par with the Winter anime slate? We will just have to wait and see!
