Ah, it’s that time of the year again! Summer is close and that means we all have a lot to look forward to – no school, no university, less work, more free time, the sun, the beach… and of course, the new anime season!
There’s nothing better than catching a break from all the euphoric summer activities by binging a summery, feel-good anime series. With that in mind, here’s a list of a few new slice-of-life drops, with beautiful animation and cheery plots, that are sure to keep you entertained.
With the new shows, it’s always a gamble… but we would confidently put our money on these ones.
Bokutachi no Remake
MAL really killed it with the description of this series:
“This is a story about a failed person who is given a second opportunity to follow his dreams.”
The show follows the story of a 28-year-old game developer who lost his job and returned to his hometown, regretting his life decisions. But, one day, he magically travels back 10 years to the time before he entered college.
The plot really reminded me of RELIFE, and I really enjoyed that one, so I’m super excited to see how Bokutachi no Remake will unfold.
Sports anime – you either love ‘em or hate ‘em and if you hate them, it’s probably because you haven’t seen Haikyuu yet.
Anyways, for all the fans of the genre, this one seems really promising. The art style looks great, the guys are super cute, and it’s about a high school water polo team (we all know what that means). Definitely worth adding to your to-watch list.
Kanojo mo Kanajo
These recommendations are purposefully light-hearted, fun watches, and Kanojo mo Kanojo is the definition of light-hearted.
It looks like your basic harem anime, but there’s a twist. Apparently, the male lead, Naoya Mukai, finally got to date his childhood friends whom he had a crush on for years, but at the same time, another girl confesses to him so he decides to get the best of both worlds, by getting both girls.
All with consent, of course, everybody agreed to this three-way relationship – you just have to see this one.
Aquatope Of White Sand
This anime just screamed summer to me, so I had to include it. It’s about an 18-year-old high school girl who works in an aquarium and meets this former idol who escaped from Tokyo.
It seems to go over some deeper feelings and self-reflection, but the vibrant poster and loveable-looking characters are what really drew me in.
For those of you who like to play it safe with the sequels of the already proven-to-be-great shows, we are getting two real gems this summer.
Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid S
We’ve all fallen in love with the first one, and the second season of Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon is surely not going to disappoint.
That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime Season 2 Part 2
The highly popular isekai with the bizarre title is getting part 2 of its second season, so grab your popcorns and get ready for some laughter.
