What Anime Should YOU Be Watching NOW!!
Hello Gym n Japan. With this current season of anime being so god damn hyped with so many good shows airing. We wanted to give you a simple list of shows you should have either added to your list to be watching in the near future once they finish airing, or should be watching weekly like myself (Jake)...because Haydon is a fake ass bitch and thinks he “doesn’t have time to watch anime.” Which we all know is a load of BS because there is always time for anime. It’s a hard life when you don’t have time to watch all the anime you want… -Haydon
Some of the shows on this list are almost non-negotiables when it comes to watching them weekly. But we can also sympathise and understand your frustration when it comes to watching an incredible episode with a goddamn cliffhanger at the end, then having to wait another entire week just for it to happen to you again. So we understand waiting and watching it all in one big batch.
I won’t be giving away spoilers below, but I will be hyping the shows up and making you want to watch them NOW with me! When you have multiple weekly shows going, it can be hard to keep up with what you are up to but it’s also like every single day there is a new episode to watch!
I am so sure there are many of you out there who have actually waited for this show to continue for many many many years…I personally only watched Bleach this year so it is all new and fresh to me. But my god, has it been good so far. If you are a fan of Bleach or even just on the fence, get into this, it does not disappoint. The creators dive right into the action and get you hooked right from the beginning! I (Haydon) still need to actually finish the original bleach because I’m at like episode 324 so I’m close at least! But this is up there with my top priorities once I finish!
2. My Hero Academia
Onto its 6th season! This show is just so good every season so I can’t imagine the quality will go down! If you haven’t started well this is your sign to start!! If you have followed the manga then you are in luck because again the show gets right into the good shit. This show is one of the ones where you could wait 12-24 weeks (whatever it is) for the series to finish. But this season has blown the water right out of the park on this one compared to previous seasons. It jumps right into the juicy action with some of the main heroes being showcased…some of which could be waifu material ;). For me (Haydon) this is the only anime that I am watching weekly and I just love how good the first 3 episodes were!
3. Chainsaw Man
This has been getting hyped up for over a year now. Ever since the manga became popular, people have been craving for this show to come out and it finally has. Studio MAPPA have done an amazing job with the animation, and the story follows along with the manga to a tee! No filler or bullshit here and there to extend the episodes, it is just into the story and the action, like any good Shonen should be. 100% should be watching this weekly unless you want to have spoilers all over your facebook newsfeed, which is basically like watching the show anyway…
4. Spy Family
It hasn’t even been a year since Spy Family initially aired, and when it did, it was a huge success. Now with the second cour currently airing, it continues to uphold its high standards. If you loved Anya and the rest of the family in the first part, you are sure to enjoy this also. Whether you watch it weekly or not is up to you, but it is a show that can turn your shit week into a happy and good week with just a single episode.
5. Mob Psycho
Personally I haven’t watched this…yet. But after the first 2 being so goddamn funny and entertaining, I think it is a show that is being lost in the limelight of some other shows. This didn’t get a new season for such a long time…not as long as Bleach obviously, but deserves some credit and should be a show Mob Psycho Fans should be devouring.
That is going to be my top 5 shows you should be watching weekly or at least considering it. There are plenty of other shows which are airing also, as well as some shows which continue to air weekly…like One Piece. But these are the ones that definitely deserved their own shot in the limelight and that you should consider adding to your list if you haven’t already or are watching weekly. What an amazing season for anime! Not often do we get such great quality in one season with 5 shows we want to watch weekly! Usually it’s 1 or 2 we watch weekly woweeee.
