Ren Bondoc, Staff Writer

We are partway through the 2023 season and still have much to look forward to. There are many upcoming anime and ones that are releasing new seasons. Here are some of our top picks.

Dr. Stone: New World

The main character, Senku Ishugami, has formed a kingdom for himself in a new world that was once all stone. The first two seasons were like a teaser introducing the characters and storyline to the fullest. The first two seasons were loved by fans dearly and will undoubtedly continue on with season three.

Demon Slayer: Sword Smith Village Arc

The main character, Tanjiro Kamado is loved by many, and fans have voiced that fact. Not only has the series done well, but the movies have, too. The Demon Slayer series made a debut movie called Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Movie: Mugen Train. Extremely long title aside, the film went on to gross over $500 Million dollars at the box office, making it the highest-grossing anime of all time. Definitely, a must-watch and a masterpiece. If you enjoy action-packed animes with a growing protagonist this is one to watch. Remember Tanjiro still has to go up against the rest of the Upper Ranks.

Heavenly Delusion

About 15 years prior to where this anime takes place, there was something strange that wiped out a lot of the current civilization. It begins in a post-apocalyptic setting with children in what seems to be a nursery. Within the nursery, there are robots that are teaching the children that everything in the outside world is terrible. The two main characters, Maru and Kiruko, decide to go out into the world and try to find an undisclosed location called “Heaven.”

Hell’s Paradise

Here we follow the ninja Gabimaru on his quest to try and find the elixir of immortality. He fights off a number of goons, and masters, and dodges execution with his abnormal superhuman strength. He ends up going against a master swordswoman named Sagiri. Sagiri recognizes Gabimaru’s raw talent and asks him to take on a dangerous mission. He was asked to follow a group of death row convicts on a mission to try and find the elixir of immortality. The death row convicts were to be executed if they were to fail the mission. If they were to complete it they would be pardoned from their sentences.

Black Clover

The plot for Black Clover is currently under wraps, although the anime is widely known. Black Clover follows a boy named Asta and the strange world that he lives in. Everyone around him seems to have magical powers but him, yet he aspires to be the next Wizard King.
