My Fall 2018 Anime Watch List

So here are the upcoming Fall 2018 shows I’m personally interested in watching.

Sorry that this list is coming out so late, by the way. Others have already had theirs out for a few weeks and all.

None of this is really ranked since it’s all listed alphabetically.

Non Yuri Anime

(There’s good stuff outside of gay girls believe it or not)

Goblin Slayer

A priestess forms her first party but ends up getting saved by someone who probably really hates goblins since he’s made it his personal goal to kill them all off. He’s probably a lot of fun at New Year’s Eve parties.

I don’t know anything about the original light novel source material, but I’m hoping this series scratches the fantasy itch while keeping the priestess from not being just another damsel in distress.

Golden Kamuy 2nd Season

I liked the first season a lot! If you like violence and gore but aren’t overly offended by poorly animated CGI bears, I’d recommend giving Golden Kamuy a whirl!

Toaru Majutsu no Index III

It’s been eight years since Index II! Even Durarara!! fans only had to wait for five. You know what happens in eight years? A ten year-old becomes old enough to vote and a thirteen year-old obtains the legal right to become an alcoholic. What I’m trying to say is that eight years is a long time.

Given that I’m an eternal fan of the underdog, it shouldn’t be a surprise that I like Index a lot. I just don’t really talk about it, I guess, so it’s really a low-key personal favourite. The PV is actually hilarious since it makes Touma look like a self-righteous thug who punches people left and right.

The Yuri List

(After all, possibly gay girls are golden)

Akanesasu Shoujo

Seems like some girls in a club perform some sort of ritual, which causes the unexpected spooky shenanigans to happen.

Anima Yell!

I had assumed that Cheer Danshi!! aired more recently while I was writing this, but it actually came out back in 2016! Time flies! At any rate, this series is gonna be about cheerleading girls~


Three demons attempt to become idols. Sounds like some cringe humour is to be expected given that these girls have no idea about what being an idol entails.

[No PV released as of September 24, 2018]

Himote House

Three sisters, two classmates, and a cat live in a house together and it turns out they have a “mysterious secret power.” It’s going to be a short (for those who get fussy about that).

[No PV released as of September 24, 2018]

Release the Spyce

Girls protect people because they work at an intelligence agency. For those of you who like comparing One Punch Man to My Hero Academia or Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku to Madoka, I guess said individuals will inevitably compare this series to Princess Principal. Be that as it may, I’m pretty excited for this one.

Tonari no Kyuuketsuki-san

A “modern-day vampire comedy” that is probably really gay.

Yagate Kimi ni Naru

Finally, a full-length (modern) yuri series that doesn’t feature a toxic relationship.

The Neglected

(These shows probably would be good but I simply don’t like or haven’t watched these shows/prequels)

Sword Art Online: Alicization

Sword Art Online Alternative Gun Gale Online was great, but it’s markedly different compared to SAO, which I don’t particularly care for. Plus I haven’t watched the second season or the movie. Considering what was mentioned above, this is a no-brainer for me to ignore.

Senran Kagura: Shinobi Master – Tokyo Youma-hen

Unfortunately, I haven’t watched the first season.

…And that’s my list!

Did I miss any shows you’re excited to watch? Feel free to degrade me let me know in the comments section down below!

  1. I have even less to look forward to than last season, but there are more shows with potential. I’m fairly certain Winter will remain the best season of the year (and it’s not close).

    That said, Bloom Into You looks really good, and Studio Gokumi gets an auto-try from me, so Tonari no Kyuketski san is in. Goblin Slayer could be fun, but I’m worried the show will treat Goblins as random RPG fodder, and that would be a turn-off, since I wouldn’t be able to shake a feeling of sleaze. (I’m having higher hopes for the Slime show.)

    I’m not sure I’ll even try Release the Spyce. Takahiro as a writer is a serious turn off. I didn’t like Akame ga Kill, I didn’t like Yuki Yuna, and I only moderately liked Girls Beyond the Wasteland. I should probably try it just in case. Probably will depend on what else airs on its day.

    As I said, I have no clear favourites of my own, so I’ll probably just click start on anything that sounds remotely fun. (Maybe Merc Storia? Maybe Gakuen Basara? Who knows?)

    Oh wait, I tell a lie. There’s Kaze ga Tsuyoku Fuiteiru, the marathon running show by author of “The Great Passage”. I’m hoping for good low-key character drama. TGP was excellent.


    1. Mmm wouldn’t say this is the brightest upcoming season but there’s a few in there that gives me hope. Hopefully you like the seasonal shows you were interested in watching!


  2. I’m interested in half a dozen shows, which means I’ll probably end up finishing one or two. Tsurune and/or Spyce seem like the most likely keepers for me, with Bloom and Radiant also possibilities. I am going to at least try the “vampire neighbor” series, but I’m not optimistic about lasting more than a couple of episodes – anything that has “vampire” in its description is normally an automatic pass for me.

      1. And in the week since I posted my first comment, Bloom and Spyce have both been picked up by HiDive, leaving me with even less to watch….


  3. Yagate Kimi ni Naru and Tonari no Kyuuketsuki-san are now on my infinite list of shows to watch. Now are you satisfied?

    Have you watched any FLCL Alternative yet? I think you’ll like it.

  4. The name Release the Spyce makes me laugh every time…but that and Bloom Into You are the only things that have really caught my eye so far. I don’t know anything about Bloom Into You so I’m really excited!!

  5. Release the Spyce is definitely one that I am looking forward to as well. Liked the story, and I had not yet seen the trailer for it, but now that I have I’m even more excited.
    And well, understandable about Sword Art, but as I’m a huge fan of that series, that one I just can’t ignore lol. Great list: Hopefully you will enjoy them! 😊😊
