The Season of Sequels: Winter 2021

It’s the end of the fall 2020 anime season and you know what that means…NEW ANIME! At first glance, it looks like the winter season is packed with sequels, so if you haven’t caught up on these shows, you might want to!

Dr. Stone is an ah-mazing anime. It has the perfect blend of humor, action, and anticipation.

Our protagonist, Senku, is a genius. His whole world revolves around science. Mysteriously, humans are turned to stone and modern civilization is lost. When Senku reanimates, he quickly uses his knowledge of science to slowly advance what is left of the human race. However, there are some that would rather the stone world be left just as it is. We follow Senku on his journey of scientific advancements to evolve the stone world with science and the battles he must fight to keep science in this new world.

The characters are well written and I adored the goofy, exaggerated facial expressions.

We were blessed with 24 episodes in the first season, so if you haven’t had a chance to catch up, you better hurry!

Another sequel I am excited for is That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime. If you are a fan of fantasy isekai, you will enjoy this show.

Our protagonist is murdered here on Earth and reincarnated into another world as a slime with a unique skill that allows him to mimic what he eats. We follow Rimuru as he embarks on his quest to prove his worth. Along the way, he literally builds an empire.

The Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime is adorable and I highly recommend it if you haven’t watched season one.

Rugjen loves to call this show the “show about nothing”.

Frankly, I can’t agree more. I don’t even remember what the first two seasons were about other than I really enjoyed watching it.

In this anime, we follow a group of school students and the chronicles of their no-so-normal daily lives. I recall it being sweet and cute and funny.

I’m going to have to go re-watch the first two season, but I know I am excited to pick it back up.

The Promised Neverland easily ranks as one of my top ten shows. The first season really grabbed my attention in a way that no other anime had.

In this anime, we follow a group of school children in their idyllic lives. On the outside everything looks normal, loving, and sweet. On the inside, we learn the truth of the world these children live in and their ultimate purpose.

Out of all of the announced sequels this season, I think this is the one I anticipate the most.

Are there any sequels that you are looking forward to this season? Let me know in the comments!

One thought on “The Season of Sequels: Winter 2021

  • There are so many promising shows this season, I could easily watch more than ten. I’ve limited myself to three to begin with, but might jump into a few more when I get some free time.
