When I find an anime to watch, I normally find a completed series because I don’t like waiting and I could normally manage 50+ episodes in 2 to 3 days (during my holidays). But I usually don’t find out if there is a sequel, like a next season. Therefore, when I finally reach the finale, I was like ‘huh? that’s it? Is there a season 2? But where?’ Then I realise it’s not out yet… Unless it’s a show I really like (for eg Tokyo Ghoul), I would likely wait for it’s next season, but if it is just some anime that didn’t leave a deep impression, I really feel as if I have wasted my time watching season one because I won’t be catching up with their season two. I’m feeling strongly about this now because I just finished Akatsuki no Yona and there’s a season two…
I don’t particularly hate that anime but it had seemed similar to some stories I have read… It somehow reminded me of Alanna by Tamora Pierce, haha! Tokyo Ghoul left a deeper impression so there is more desire to see this anime series through.
The list below is not in order of preference:
Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-Kun: This is a comedy with limited romance. It has only 12 episodes so it is quite short but the ending won’t leave you unsatisfied. It has a high school setting and you will love all characters in it. You really just gotta jump right in and watch this one and don’t read the plot, it’s just too good to be summarised.
Kuroko No Basuke: At this point of writing, its season 3 is not completed yet but it should be by next week or so. The story is about how a guy (who looks weak) aims to defeat 5 prodigies who were his schoolmate after they each entered a different high school. Honestly speaking, I started watching this not because I wanted to try a basketball anime but because my friend HIGHLY RECOMMENDED me to watch due to the pure hotness of the male characters. It’s true that they are hot (lol) but the plot is interesting and they really have some great moves. [Gintama made a parody and it cracked me up]
Ookami Shoujo to Kuro Ouji: This is for anybody craving for a highschool romance with comedy. It’s short with 12 episodes but that is just the appropriate number of episodes, if not it’s just long winded. The story is about this girl who told a lie and now she needs the help of the prince of the school (prince as he is cool and nice). But he turns out to be a sadist. [By the way, I really like the opening song of this anime, haha]
Psychic Detective Yakumo: This show is about a college student named Yakumo who has the ability to see spirits with his left red eye and sometimes communicate with them. He spends his spare time winning money with fake card tricks, or just sleeping about. But, once in a while, he’ll take a spirit associated police case that has piqued his interest. This is a short one too with 13 episodes and has light romance.
Haikyuu: This is an anime about volleyball with a second season coming up I think. It’s hilarious and the first season doesn’t really end with a cliffhanger. The main character is a really small guy with great jumping power. Coincidentally, he got into the same highschool with a rival he met on court once during his middle school competition and now he had to work with him. It didn’t really work out at first but they make an amazing combi.
That’s all I have for now. Tell me your thoughts about my list or if you like the anime I have mentioned! 🙂 Looking forward to hear from you:)
