I’m unfortunately not watching much anime as of late either because I don’t have the time, nothing seems interesting to watch, being burnt out from watching so much in the past or all 3. That said, I took a look at the Winter line up for 2018 and some have actually peaked my interest.
NOTE: These are not recommendations (excluding the last one), these are merely one that have peaked my interest and will not know if they will be good or not.
First anime that looks interesting to me is “Violet Evergarden”. While the description doesn’t really say much about the plot, the animation and art style looks absolutely gorgeous (which is to be expected by Kyoto Animation) so I’m looking forward to watching it just for the animation alone. This trailer should give you an idea of what the plot is and how the animation looks.
Second one that looks interesting is “Grancrest Senki”. This one is a Fantasy setting anime about a Mage and a Knight that is trying to save their country that is ravaged with chaos and wars. I’m not exactly sure why this seems interesting to me but I can’t help but feel it has the potential to be very good if done correctly. I can’t find a trailer that has subs for this one.
The third anime that seems interesting is “Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens”. I’m not really sure what to expect out of this one but the trailer alone makes me want to watch this anime.
Last but not least is “Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card-hen”. This is a sequel to the 1998 anime “Cardcaptor Sakura” and if you have not seen it I suggest you to watch it for it is a really good series. The fact that this anime is getting a new sequel (and not a remake like Sailor Moon) after 20 years should tell you how good it is. I recently rewatched “Cardcaptor Sakura” and in all honestly the animation still holds up even by today’s standards which is probably why they went for a sequel instead of a remake. I won’t be posting the trailer for those that have not seen the original since it will spoil it.
I’m definitely looking forward to “Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card-hen” the most out of all of these.
