Fall 2018 Anime Watchlist

With the new season of Anime upon us in the next few days October 3rd being the first one of the season being released, Now would be a good time to break down some of the top fall anime. With the top 10 anime that are being anticipated for the Fall 2018 season.


Sword Art Online.jpg

Sword Art Online: Alicization

Rating: PG-13

Genres: Action, Adventure, Fantasy, Game, Romance

Kirito wakes up with no memory of how he arrived in a fantasy like world, that has a dark tree, where he runs into a young boy named Eugeo that Kirito somehow has memories of. In the memories he sees a young girl named Alice that he can’t forget.

If your a fan of the Sword Art Online series This is a promising return back to the series. If your not a fan of Whole SAO Series, you are probably skip this series, It seems to be continuing the Kirito arc.

Goblin Slayer

Status: Not yet aired

Studios: White Fox

Rating: PG-13

Genres: Action, Fantasy

Air Date: October 7th

Based on a light Novel of the same name This is a brand new anime for the fall season. This looks like it will be very similar to a lot of previous fantasy style anime, Guy is OP saves girl, girl falls in love with guy. While this is not new that is not a bad thing.

Only time with tell if this anime will resonate with the fans or will fall into the anime Graveyard that continues to grow


Tokyo Ghoul:re 2nd Season

Status: Not yet aired

Studios: Studio Pierrot, Pierrot Plus

Rating: R

Genres: Action, Drama, Horror, Mystery, Psychological, Seinen, Supernatural

Air Date: October 9th

Being as it’s the second season of a series that has had multiple series runs This can deter new watchers from getting into this show, however the series has strong fans so that will not hurt the anime as a whole. It continues the story that Season 1 laid out in its 12 episode season.


That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime.jpg

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime

Status: Currently Airing

Studios: 8bit

Rating: PG-13

Genres: Fantasy, Shounen

Air Date: October 2nd

A truly fresh anime, it brings a much needed breath of fresh air to the Isekai genre (Other World) Instead of coming into the new world and being an OP Humanoid Character (looking at you SAO, Overlord, Log Horizon) this one starts off as a Slime. Yes like a Dragon Quest Slime. The main character dies and is reincarnated as a basic slime with some interesting skills.


Fairy Tail Final Series.jpg

Fairy Tail: Final Series

Status: Not yet aired

Studios: A-1 Pictures, Bridge

Rating: PG-13

Genres: Action, Magic, Adventure, Fantasy, Comedy, Shounen

Air Date: October 2nd

It follows the characters and plot of Fairy tail, and I am sure will be adding even more characters, Big Fights, and lots of Happy the cat! This is your run of the mill Shonen anime, that being said it is not bad. Thankfully it is running on the opposite season from My Hero Academia which would crush it in the Shonen Anime Department.


A Certain Magical Index III.jpg

A Certain Magical Index III

Status: Not yet aired

Studios: J.C.Staff

Rating: PG-13

Genres: Action, Magic, Sci-Fi, Super Power

Air Date: October 2nd

This season the popular anime are filled to the gills with new seasons of anime that already have at least one season prior. I have not personally have not seen any of the previous seasons So I am neutral on excitement for the third season.


Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai

Status: Not yet aired

Studios: CloverWorks

Rating: PG-13

Genres: Comedy, Romance, School

Air Date: October 4th

When people try and describe anime this is probably how most people imagine anime. Bunny girls, High school, and Big...assets. Reading the synopsis of the anime, it literally made no sense. So I scrolled down to the forums section and surprise surprise, quite a few people did not understand it. So a simplified version is that sometimes when people hit puberty, the people around them stop acknowledging them (Allegory for actual puberty...I think so)

This looks like its gonna be a tease anime, that they sell you on the idea of a bunny suit wearing girl, but then your gonna get stuck with a generic high school drama filled to the very top with angst and plenty of harem anime tropes.


Irozuku Sekai no Ashita kara

Status: Not yet aired

Studios: P.A. Works

Rating: PG-13

Genres: Drama, Magic, Romance

Air Date: October 6th

A fresh anime that looks like it will be premiering on Amazon Prime Video. This anime from the trailers appears that it will have beautiful lighting and scenery designs. There are sequences that have neon looking colors that dazzle the eye, and other sequences that appear as if actual care and detail went into the backgrounds. As for the story it looks like its gearing up to be a good story line about a young girl through some shenanigans gets to meet her grandmother when she was in high school. From all accounts it looks like its going to be a Drama and Romance anime.


Kishuku Gakkou no Juliet

Status: Not yet aired

Studios: LIDENFILMS

Rating: PG-13

Genres: Action, Comedy, Romance, School, Shounen

Air Date: October 6th

This is literally a Romeo and Juliet story, the main characters are named Juliet Persia and Romio Inuzuka. It is based off a Manga, but one could rightfully argue that its actually based off Shakespeare’s works, except with Anime Waifus


Ore ga Suki nano wa Imouto dakedo Imouto ja Nai

Status: Not yet aired

Studios: NAZ, Magia Doraglier

Rating: PG-13

Genres: Comedy, Romance

Air Date: October 10th

Rounding out the bottom of the top 10 is a Anime that is both fresh and Meta. This show appears to be about a girl that writes a Light Novel. So this is an Anime, that was based off a Manga, that is about a Light Novel. We have to go deeper! Once you get past the meta inception idea, it looks like it will be a Comedy Romance.


In summary, these are just the top 10 fall 2018 anime and My thoughts on them before they came out. As the season carries on the anime my be very different from what I thought it would be. And these are just my opinions, so don’t take them as Gospel...Or do I am not your boss. If I didn’t get to your favorite upcoming anime that is coming soon leave a comment below, and share this post with your friends.
