1) Attack on Titan Final Season THE FINAL CHAPTERS Special 2

Attack on Titan’s final season is here, and it’s promising to be an epic conclusion.

  • From what we know, there won’t be any “anime-original ending” for Attack on Titan’s anime finale. It’s confirmed that the final season will stay true to the manga’s storyline, ensuring that fans get the closure they’ve been craving. But hold on, there’s more.

  • A trusted leaker with access to the anime’s storyboard has spilled the beans, revealing that while the anime will follow the manga’s path, it won’t be a simple one-to-one adaptation. Additional content is being interwoven into the series, designed to enhance the overall experience and provide better clarity. This means that the final chapters of Attack on Titan are going to be an unforgettable journey that you won’t want to miss!

Now, here’s the deal. Each episode will be available for free on Crunchyroll and Funimation a week after it airs in Japan. So, if you can dodge spoilers on social media, you can watch it for free. But if you’re eager to keep up with the action as it unfolds week by week, you’ll need to grab a subscription for Crunchyroll or Funimation.

  • Release Date: 17th November
  • Platform: Netflix

Bryan Lee O’Malley’s Scott Pilgrim comic series has a devoted fanbase, and for those who adored the source material, there’s some fantastic news in store.

Scott Pilgrim’s saga, which follows a laid-back musician battling his crush’s seven evil exes to win her heart, first made it to the big screen in 2010 with a live-action adaptation directed by Edgar Wright and starring Michael Cera. While the film garnered critical acclaim for its faithful adaptation, visual flair, humor, and action, it unfortunately didn’t perform as expected at the box office.

The 2010 movie left many fans wanting more, and now, with this anime remake, there’s a fresh chance to experience the world of Scott Pilgrim in a way that’s closer to the comics.

Whether you’re a die-hard fan or new to the Scott Pilgrim universe, this promises to be an epic adventure you won’t want to miss. Get ready for an anime adaptation that’s bound to do justice to the beloved comic series.

3) Akuma-kun

  • Release Date: 9th November
  • Platform: Netflix

Let’s dive into a classic reborn! Akuma-kun is an exciting ONA (Original Net Animation) series, and it’s all based on Shigeru Mizuki’s 1963 manga of the same name. Despite the manga being quite short, with just 25 chapters, this anime adaptation is set to bring its intriguing tale to life.

  • Based on what we know so far, Akuma-kun revolves around the enigmatic journey of a young boy determined to rescue the world from turmoil, conflict, and hunger. What sets this apart is his unusual and diabolical allies. Demons from various mythologies and folklore worldwide come to his aid; what are the chances he’ll succeed?

  • The heart of the story remains true to the manga’s roots. It features a once-in-10,000-years child prodigy, affectionately nicknamed Akuma-kun. This prodigy is accompanied by a cast of demons from myths and folk stories from around the world, all wielding dark magic to navigate through their adventures.

What makes this anime particularly intriguing is that it’s the manga’s second shot at a television adaptation in its impressive 50-year history. With its rich and mature themes, Akuma-kun offers a dark tone that might captivate a new audience, giving this classic story a fresh lease on life.

  • Platform: Netflix

If you’re a fan of Capcom’s renowned survival game, Onimusha, then you’re in for a treat as it’s making its way to the anime world. But there’s more to this than just gaming nostalgia. If the name Miyamoto Musashi rings a bell, the legendary samurai who left an indelible mark on a new generation of warriors, you’ll want to mark your calendar for the release of Onimusha on Netflix.

Here’s the scoop on what you can expect from this exciting anime adaptation. According to Netflix, Onimusha’s official synopsis reads:

  • The heart of this adaptation centers around Miyamoto Musashi, a character inspired by the legendary Japanese actor, Toshiro Mifune. It’s a tale set during the early Edo Period, a pivotal era when Japan was transitioning towards peace, and the echoes of war were fading into history. In this setting, we find an aging Musashi embarking on a covert mission, armed with the mythical “Oni Gauntlet.” His journey is nothing short of epic, as he sets out to confront the lurking demons.

With a rich blend of history, legendary samurai, and supernatural elements, Onimusha promises to be an anime series that will capture the attention of both fans of the game and those intrigued by the world of Japanese folklore. It’s an adventure that’s definitely worth keeping an eye on.

5) Blue Eye Samurai

  • Release Date: 3rd November
  • Platform: Netflix

In the backdrop of 17th-century Japan, a time when foreign faces were a rarity due to strict isolation, our protagonist Mizu embarks on a unique and daring quest. Her mission: to track down and confront the four white men who defied the closed borders. Among them, one might hold the key to her mysterious past and the identity of her father, the source of her profound shame.

However, in a society where revenge is a path typically forbidden to women, Mizu faces an uphill battle. To achieve her goal, she must conceal both her true gender and her striking blue eyes.

  • Described by The Hollywood Reporter as a captivating blend of Game of Thrones and The Witcher, this series breathes new life into familiar themes. While it doesn’t fall strictly into the realm of fantasy, it promises an enticing mix of nearly supernatural elements.
  • Prepare for a thrilling ride with shades of dark romance, as the story hints at unexplored tensions between the main character and her Mulan-esque rival. But make no mistake; the heart of the series lies in the gripping action and the unyielding pursuit of revenge that drives the plot. It’s a narrative that’s set to keep you on the edge of your seat, waiting for the next thrilling twist.
