Key points for Top 10 Upcoming Anime in 2024:
- I’m excited about the varied anime genres on the list, from action shounen like Blue Exorcist to eagerly anticipated adaptations like Solo Leveling, ensuring there’s something for every anime fan.
- I can’t wait for sequels like Classroom of the Elite Season 3, KonoSuba Season 3, and That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 3, highlighting the ongoing appeal of these beloved series.
- Regardless of differing opinions on Demon Slayer, I acknowledge the series’ enduring popularity and eagerly await the Hashira Training Arc in Spring 2024.
- I’m looking forward to upcoming adaptations of popular manga like Blue Box and Oshi no Ko Season 2, reflecting the ongoing trend of bringing well-received manga to the screen.
2023 was an amazing year for anime. I cannot recall another year in recent memory that was nearly as stacked as 2023. Yes, 2022 was amazing too but 2023 is just on a whole different plane. But guess what, the anime of 2024 looks to be even better. Just the anime confirmed for 2024 is enough to propel it to legendary status. And if by any chance things like One Piece Remake also drop in 2024, it’ll be remembered as one of the best years in the community.
Just as I mentioned, for the sake of this list, I will only be listing series/movies that have been explicitly confirmed for 2024. So things like One Piece Remake won’t be on here. As it has not been confirmed to come out in 2024 yet. But even then this list will be amazing because of how much good stuff is coming out next year. A few of these don’t have a confirmed release season yet but they have been confirmed for sometime in 2024. So of course, they qualify.
Either way, without wasting any more time, let’s just get started.
Blue Exorcist Season 3
Starting with the Winter 2024 season, we are already starting the year strong. Blue Exorcist Season 3 is another example of those 2010s animes making a comeback and I am here for it. It was among the first animes I watched when I just started and I am so happy to see it get a sequel all these years later. I am very curious to see where the story goes. If you are looking for another action shounen to watch, Blue Exorcist will not disappoint and the sequel is coming out pretty soon on 6th January.
Classroom of the Elite Season 3
Now yes, I did have my complaints about how the Season 2 adaptation was handled. I didn’t like how much content it skipped. BUT, I am still excited for Season 3 just because of what arc it covers. The story this around is going to be pretty amazing and I cannot help but feel excited to see it in animation. I hope that the anime pulls through and delivers a great adaptation for Season 3 because the LN was on fire around this time. CoTE Season 3 Releases on 3rd January.
I don’t even need to say much about this. You can taste the hype for this anime in the air. Or maybe that’s just my mom cooking in the kitchen but regardless, this is one of the most anticipated anime releases of 2024. Solo Leveling of THE most popular Manhwa on the planet. We will finally get to witness the anime adaptation of this awesome Manhwa in all its glory on 4th January. Seriously, it has been a while since I last saw an anime with this much hype behind it.
Demon Slayer: Hashira Training Arc
Moving on to the Spring 2024 season we are looking at another amazing spring season. Spring 2023 was a stacked season too. And starting this season off, of course, we have Demon Slayer. Love it or hate it, there is always a certain level of hype for Demon Slayer. Even if I put the massive mainstream appeal of the series aside, I cannot help but be excited about this series just because of how hard UFOTable works on it and how well it is produced. Especially in this season cause we will get to see the abilities of the remaining Hashira.
KonoSuba Season 3
It has been SO long since Season 2 came out and I still have to wait another 3 months to finally get to Season 3 sob but at least it is finally here. I have no idea what is coming up in the story next but I just watched the trailer and it looks fun as hell. Regardless of the plot, I know for a fact that this season will be fun as hell to watch, I have missed that typical KonoSuba comedy so much in my life and it will finally be back a few months later!
That Time I got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 3
I have read this arc in the manga and I am really excited about it. We got a glimpse of Luminous Valentine in the Coleus OVA but the upcoming arc will reveal a lot about her and how her kingdom works. We will get to learn a lot more about Hinata Sakaguchi as well. There are a lot of upcoming fights that I am excited about. This will be a fun and action-packed arc. There are a lot of interesting plot developments coming up as well!
Mushoku Tensei II Part 2
Confusing naming aside, it is hard to NOT be excited about this part after the ending of Part 1. Rudy has finally found some happiness after suffering for years. And then, of course, there is also the sheer amount of lore drops and world-building we got in Part 1. I am sure all that will play some role as well. Most of all though, I am very excited to see what happens in the story now. I feel like we will get to see the search for Zenith in this season but still, what they do with the story will be fun to see.
Bleach TYBW Part 3
I’ve said this countless times, I will gladly say it again I am a HUGE Bleach fan. And as such, this right here is the anime I look forward to the most in 2024. Given the amount of new content we got in the last season, there are rumors that there will be a LOT more new content this season as well. I cannot help but be excited. The anime team and Kubo are cooking and I am here for the feast. I a sure it will be yet another banger of a season. No release window yet but it is confirmed for 2024.
Of course, I had to include at least one romance anime on the list. And Blue Box happens to be one of the best-selling romance mangas as well. I have not read the manga myself, but hearing people talk about this and as a romance fan myself, I am really excited about this. I want to see just how good this series is after hearing so much about it. No release window yet but again confirmed for sometime in 2024.
Oshi no Ko Season 2
If you checked out my top 10 anime for 2023 article, you’d know why I give credit to Oshi no Ko so much. It went from a series very few people were excited about to something almost everyone in the community knows about. And that is for a good reason. On top of that, Season 2 will cover one of my favorite arcs of the manga as well so that adds even more to my excitement. A lot of fun moments are coming and given how well-adapted season 1 was, I cannot wait to see more of the manga in animation. No release window yet but confirmed for sometime in 2024.
That is all for now!
Those were the 10 anime I look forward to the most in 2024. Of course, there are a lot, a LOT more great anime that I look forward to but for the sake of the article, I had to narrow them down to 10. I do apologize for the fact that it was a very sequel-heavy list. But again, there are so many great sequels coming out in 2024, that it is hard not to be excited for them. Either way, let me know what you guys think in the comments. I will take my leave here. See ya!!
