The Best Anime of 2023: Although we’re more than halfway into 2023, anime has hit its peak. Jujutsu Kaisen, Demon Slayer, and Vinland Saga have plenty of exciting arcs that can take up so much time of a fan’s day but let’s not forget Buddy Daddies and Hell’s Paradise. These originals are just as inventive and charming.
Netflix did the impossible by creating a live-action adaptation for One Piece’s Wano arc just as the anime is coming to a close. This took them years, but it was well worth it and I’d be dying to know how many people have recently started watching One Piece since the adaptation aired. As of right now, that information isn’t available but it’s safe to say that 2023 will top all previous years in terms of anime.
And if you thought that was enough, Attack on Titan: The Final Season is finally getting its last batch of episodes. After 25 years Bleach will finally end too with Bleach: Thousand Year Blood War. To top this all off? The series we’ve known and loved for so long will also be saying goodbye to Ash. I can’t even fathom what they’re going to do with Pokémon after Ash leaves us but one thing is for sure, there won’t be a dry eye in sight for any fans.
I don’t know about you guys but I’m never looking away from my TV again because this year is going to be fire!

Oshi no Ko
From the writer behind Kaguya-sama: It is followed by Love is War, Aka Akasaka, which presents another exceptional series but in different ways. The Kaguya-sama, though may make you cringe or laugh or cheer the young lovers, the writer says, but when it comes to the Oshi no Ko, he sees it as a repugnant thing when some real topics touch the entertainment world. The Doga Kobo Studio manages excellent animations for each chapter of Oshi no Ko, which come as surprises in unending twists.
To be honest, I can’t give away the plot of Oshi no Ko, however, the narration begins with the move of a talented and famous idol called Ai Hoshino because of untimely pregnancy to a rural area. After this, her physician who is an Ai fan gets mysteriously killed before re-emerging as one of her babies in a new identity. One child dies and gets reborn in another doctor’s previous patient, who is a big fan of Ai too. Both do not know who each other is and try navigating through the entertainment industry in an attempt to figure out what’s happening.
It sounds weird, I know. However, if you are a mystery and drama addict like me, then this one is a must-watch named Oshi no Ko. The title refers to a TV sequence that has a pilot of eighty minutes long! Only after watching this initial episode, one will actually become a fan of it in the long term.
SKIP AND LOAFER
What’s most attractive about Skip and Loafer, though, is its hero whose simply delightful—as romantic leads go. He is great, popular, dashing – but he simply remains “a good guy”!
Mitsumi Iwakura is determined to rise above the level of her family’s social status and attends a renowned high school in Tokyo. She is a very perfectionist workaholic but perhaps underprepared for city life as she enters a high institution with more than 6 pupils under one teacher. On her initial day as a member of the public transport system, Milla confesses that she got lost and bumps into Sōsuke Shima who incidentally is also stuck in the traffic. He is amazingly cool about it and he takes care of her.
The two sparks up an unlikely friendship: This makes Shima a heart-throbbing icon among females while Mitsumi is often found in awkward situations due to her bubbly nature of breaking social boundaries However, Shima is just kind-hearted and patient; it’s obvious that he enjoys spending his time with Mitsumi. However, it is not a one-way street. The passion and commitment in Mitsumi awaken a something of Shima which still remains enigmatic with little being known about her previous background that is slowly revealing through the show.
The other cast members bring strength to the show (particularly Mitsumi’s neat stylist aunt, Nao) however never dwarf the leading characters, and the connection between them. Therefore, friendship plays the key role of a romance that has to bloom but most importantly in the characters development and in the TV show. To see how these two, in their own ways, bond – and maybe fall in love is simply cute!
Tengoku Daimakyo (Heavenly Delusion)
As I watched Production I.G’s Tengoku Daimakyo, a new sci-fi mystery anime based on Masakazu Ishiguro’s manga series (which is known as Heavenly Delusion in English), my mind kept wandering back at Otomo’s 19 They both focus on a group of youngsters, born after catastrophic accidents, being self-reliant in a world where hope for the future is lost and trying to find their place in the world. The difference in Tengoku Daimakyo with respect to Otomo’s work is evident enough as it dwells on the interplay between two characters which probes into the subject areas such as friendship, sex and adolescent hood.
Set 15 years after the fall of civilization, Tengoku Daimakyo alternates between two stories: This includes Maru and Kiruka, two child protagonists who roam around post war Tokyo searching for an enigmatic place which they call ‘Heaven’ and a group of strange child prodigies dwelling in a high tech underground facility with supernatural ability. Their quest for heaven is interrupted by dreadful supernatural animals of which only Maru can dispatch. What is the link between these two stories. Who is Maru and what is his powers and relation with last days of Earth? Watching Tengoku Daimakyo is half of the fun of figuring that out! Another half is instantly watches TV show for a second time to notice the evidence that remained unidentified during your initial observation.
One of the outstanding anime premieres of 2023 must-watch includes Tengoku Daimakyo, which features impressive casts of captivating characters, marvellous animation, captivating post-apocalyptic mystery stories accompanied by breathtaking.
Summer Time Rendering
For anyone in search of a whodunit packed with suspense that will drive them mad, look no further than Summer Time Rendering as an ideal pick. The genre is pretty narrowed down to a supernatural mystery/thriller-romantic movie or romantic-slice-of-life. Therefore, everybody has a chance!
In this case, a main character of the story comes back to their birthplace for farewell of a dear friend died since young age. First of all, Shinpei is informed by someone about the death of his child-hood friend Ushio with whom he used to play baseball together, where he learnt that his friend Ushio drowned. However, Shinpei later begins to doubt that this was just a
Let me put it this way, the story at hand goes beyond a simple who-did-it or murder case-based mystery like that of Summer Time Rendering. The show has far greater potential for leaving you in state of confusion – in a good way.
The last episode leaves you at the edge of your seat such that the whole season was watched all through one night and I missed my bedtime for several hours. Fortunately, the series contains just twenty-five episodes, meaning that if one decides to watch he/she would devote just eight and half hours of time.

Don’t you recall how the conclusion of Attack on Titan left everyone, especially Twitter in utter shock last year? Yeah, well believe it or not, that was just the beginning.

Attack on Titan: The Final Season –Part Three has been announced to premiere on March 4th in Japan and most likely stream on Crunchyroll as its sister station after that.
Jujutsu Kaisen: Season 2
However, readers of Jujutsu Kaisen have come to realise that since its debut in March 2018 as a story hitting the road it rolled fast enough into becoming a complicated tapestry of stories. As for the anime of “Jujutsu Kaisen”, it went off at full speed right after Yuji Itadori -high school pupil, became cursed by a demon. It is also expected back in its second seasons this year. Akutami Gege’s response was this sarcastic statement: ‘Jujutsu Kaisen Season Two will premiere in July 2023 and may possibly simulcast on Crunchyroll just as the series of the first season.
Horimiya: The Missing Pieces
Horimiya had a massive fanbase of the manga series even before the anime adaptation was released. So, fans were totally excited about its anime adaptation in 2021, but they were disappointed by several missing scenes.
The series’ 13 episodes covered the manga’s 139 chapters, missing all the best scenes in the process. Thankfully, the second part of the anime series covering those missing scenes was released in 2023. Horimiya is an interesting school drama with many cute side characters.

So determined are they to crush Black Dragon that not only do they defy Mikey’s order on it, but also, they get in bed with that same villain who later killed Chifuyu and planned on killing Takemichi in future. This alliance brings with it a nuanced view of Kisaski which shows him as somebody beyond the “villain” of Takemichi’s narrative and reveals the tangled web that links both his past with the past of the former.
One Piece: Season 20, Wano Country Arc
The series mounts in weight for One Piece. It’s like a combination of K2, Annapurna and Changabang mountains for the eyes to climb in order not to miss any episode of series 20 already out, while there are still nineteen more previous seasons. However, given their strong work on final battles within Wano in One Piece and seeing how it does waste considerable amounts of time.

Related fear. may face. Referring to the many destructions suffered by humanity in the early 21st century. Strange, frustrating, disturbing, and deeply moving, Automata challenges video games as a medium so much that adapting them to television almost feels like a violation of the entire game.
In its first episode, version 1.1a fully confirms these fears, with a direct adaptation of the game’s opening moments that does not give away that it is neither exclusive to the uninitiated, nor to the converted. Justifies the investment. Then he digs in to suggest that the series could eventually turn into something completely different. That’s part of the fun: There’s no way to know for sure until the end.

Even though it has been run for many seasons within the mech genre, The Witch from Mercury could serve perfectly well as starting point for anybody eager to climb into a gargantuan robot and beat up another person.
Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead
What would yours be on the last day before you turned into one of those rotting zombies. The Apocalypse starts and it coincides with a new zombie-like corporating job for Akira Tendo which is about forming that list. Acting both as a commentary of the end times and the nature of boring, cyclical work life, Zom 100: Heart is more abundant in the Bucket List of the Dead than expected. It is not surprising that as of this August, Netflix will release a live-action adaptation.
Ranking of Kings: Season Two, The Treasure Chest of Courage
Last year, One of the most amazingly refreshing anime was, The story of a small prince who learns to rule with love rather than fear in Ranking of Kings.

Mashle: Magic and Muscles
Congratulations to all of us who are done with Harry Potter! Get ready for the next wizard school hijinks!
It’s called Mashle: Magic and Muscles, and it is about boy going in magic school without any personal talents in magic. Does he have evidence that will, and desire are greater abilities than having a natural advantage upon birth?
It should have been clear to Crunchyroll, following in the wake of Spy x Family’s triumph, that the launching time of Buddy Daddies would yield almost instant results. Well, you have to see it just by looking at the title alone, don’t you? Buddy daddies is about two bachelor assassins with one little girl tagging along after their mission was disrupted by events. It’s cute.
Boruto: Sasuke’s Story Arc
Despite the belief that Boruto would be a successful successor to Naruto, it turned out that it is not the most exciting continuation for the ninja universe besides Naruto’s uninspiring offspring.

Subsequently, the season series returns this year with Thorfinn, who is the son of an overthrown warrior and now serves in the same force that murdered the warrior’s father.
