Upcoming 2018 Anime I Can’t Wait For!

Let me say once again Happy New Year to all of my readers! 🙂 New year means new anime, and today I am here to share with you some upcoming or released series and movies I’m excited about. They are mostly Slice of Life or drama, but I also like a good action packed series, this is just some of all the series I am hoping to watch.

From the very beginning when the PV came out, I’ve wanted to watch this anime. I mean c’mon the art is so beautiful and the story is interesting. Can’t wait for this one to come out. Read my post about Violet Evergarden here.

Studio: KyoAni

Genre: Fantasy, Drama

Synopsis: Long ago the “Auto Memories Doll” was born. Professor Orland, an influential figure in the printing industry, invented a new type of printing machine for his wife Molly, so that she could write novels after she had lost her eyesight. The machine was given the appearance of a petite lovely doll. Putting his heart and hopes into it, the professor named it “Auto Memories Doll”. Eventually, Auto Memories Dolls became widespread, supporting the lives of many. Now, the term is applied to women whose work is to put thoughts into words, either for those who cannot write or on behalf of others.

This story is about a young girl, Violet Evergarden, and how she connects people’s hearts as an Auto Memories Doll living at the turning point of a generation. (Source: WOWJAPAN.asia)

Genre: Drama, Slice of Life

Synopsis: Rei Kiriyama is a 17-year-old boy who recently started living alone, financed by his salary as a professional Shogi player. Despite his independence, however, he’s yet to mature emotionally, and his problems continue to haunt him in his daily life. His relationship with his adoptive family is strained, and he has difficulties interacting with his fellow high school students. Meanwhile, his professional career has entered a slump. Burdened with the heavy expectations placed on him as the fifth to become pro in middle school, his wins and losses are fluctuating as his record and progression into the ranks begin to stagnate.

Acquainted with Rei are the three Kawamoto sisters: Akari, Hinata, and Momo. Unlike Rei, they live happily in their modest home, which they warmly welcome Rei into as if he were one of their own. Despite his reservations about becoming too close to the family, he frequently visits, interacting with them and receiving the kind of care and affection he never quite had while under his foster home.

This is the story of Rei’s triumphs and failures, relationships new and old, and his growth as a person. (Source: TV Tropes)
