by Abdel Gemoh

Auth: Abdel G.

Calling all weebs and otakus, get your crunchyroll roll accounts and your netflix debts cleared cause we’re back baby with a brand new season! Oh yes, looking for more drama? check, people going to other worlds and becoming super OP?! Check, Oni-chans having weird relationships with loli sisters, uh … check? Well it’s the same degeneracy we’ve all come to love from Yaoi I mean Yuri on Ice to epics like vinland saga, we won’t be seeing anime like that this fall (well we both know it’s spring) but we have a jam packed season ahead for you and although it started 7 days ago for you we’ll do our best to cover potential shows you shouldn’t miss this month!

10. Haikyuu!!: To the Top 2nd Season (oct 3 2020)

After carrying the mantle as the spiritual successor to Kuroko no Basket the first half of Haikyuu truly did not fail to deliver in every way from a lovable main character to antagonists that you just can’t hate because they’re just so cool, and some of those absurd scenes when Shoyo and his antagonist counterparts volley a ball I swear if I get any more of those i’ll need a heart transplant cause I can’t take anymore lord knows I can’t. Nonetheless we’re  more than eager to see the progression of Shoyo and the boys from Karasuno High School but hey if you can’t wait for the next one you could always head out over to our website and get a hold of the latest manga [insert sleezy sales tactic here]

‘...when Shoyo and his antagonist counterparts volley a ball I swear if I get any more of those i’ll need a heart transplant cause I can’t take anymore lord knows I can’t.’

9. Dragon Quest: Dai no Daibouken (Oct 3 2020)

Dragon Quest was first released in 1986, and 34.... Years… later… wow feel old yet?Well don’t fret, Dai is back yet again to turn back the years and in 4k, heh, sounds good now right? Well the dragon quest franchise has always been good and big but it was never on par with its counterpart Dragon Ball and although DBZ opened the pathway for anime, Dragon Quest was easily overshadowed by the mammoth but that didn’t mean this show wasn’t force to be reckoned with, the fact that it ended up making an appearance in Jump Force which was considered a hall of fame for legendary shows and characters to make an appearance, shows the quality this show and game truly has and for those of you who may have missed out on the show and felt the quality wasn’t on par with your brand new 8k tv, our homeboys from TV Tokyo decided to plug you all with a reboot of the show and yes in 1080p quality, now we finally get the chance to hear our boy scream the words, “Advance Slash!”, with JBL’s and an 8k tv and did we mention that we also have the manga on our online website?

8. The Irregular at Magic High School: Visitor Arc (Oct 4 2020)

Do you remember back in the early 2010’s when anime was drowned in anime revolving around High School Arcs, no seriously there was a time when the world of anime wasn’t filled with the trash of isekai but rather it was just a huge garbage pile of high school anime, for example, High School of the dead, High School DXD, Classroom of the Elite, Assassination Classroom, Angel Beats, Kakegurui, The Quintessential Quintuplets,  Fruits Basket, Rakudai Kishi no Calvary (gimme my season 2 Flying Dogs studios it’s been 6 years!), these are just from the top of my head, but the point is, we got flustered with so much anime from this era but surprisingly we did not get enough sequels from them, so many of these anime were dare I say good, but no instead we’re getting season 2’s of shows about slimes, Yet today the injustice has been removed and after 6 years, 6 years we’re getting a sequel to the Irregular at Magical High School and out of the many anime from the High School Era without a doubt this has to be one of the anime that deserved a sequel but just behind Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry of course, but without a doubt fans will be ecstatic to see the most OP High Schooler make a reappearance in this new Arc which is set to blow them away.

7. Noblesse (Oct 8 2020)

Remember earlier this year when the world of anime would forever be turned on its head when Crunchyroll struck a deal with Webtoons (Indie platform for Manhwa artist) to adapt its popular manwha, yeah you read that right manhwa not manga (Korean Comics) into Manga and they were greeted with a massive audience and with such expectations placed on them, they just rode on the wave to enormous success examples being Tower of god and god of High School, although they are the only two to have been released, they showed that the future is bright and that’s just the type of hype Noblesse would need, from amazing visuals to insane OST’s the stage is set for Raizel who has awoken from his 820 year slumber, the reason for his sleep I dunno, no really there’s actually a reason for that, his task with protecting Nobles as is his job, but what threats lie ahead, what secrets can we hope to discover, well I dunno but still the OST’S in this thing people, my word!

6. Kimi to Boku no Saigo no Saigo no Senjou, Aruiwa Sekai ga Hajimaru Seisen (Oct 7 2020)

Have you ever watched an anime or any show were you’re catfished by this war filled with intense action, you know, where the colours are all out of place but it works so well the action, the violence, the OST’s, but then somehow, some way, some simp of a prince/nobel falls in love with the opposing armies forces and suddenly you’re forced to start hating the action, because you just want this couple to fall in love but somehow at the back of your mind your thinking, “these guys are so gonna die.”, take that feeling, put it in a pot, brewing, mix it up and amplify that by x100 yes, I am not exaggerating that’s Kimi to Boku….yeah i’m not saying the name, but jeez if you ever wanted an anime that would take your heart and shred it to pieces then look no further then Kimi to Boku.

5. Akudama Drive (Oct 3 2020) 

Have you watched Durarara? Of course you have because you’re a cool person and you’re special so I don’t have to continue with this post, Wait? You haven’t? Well’re still awesome I guess. 

Akudama drive is that anime that you know, low key you simply can’t sleep on, no really, you can’t , it’s Gotham City without Batman, heaven on earth I tell you, well enough Batman slendering, if your up for a trip to the underground of anime with a slice of life then I highly recommend you pick this up as it’s a definite must I tell you.

4. Tomikaku Kawaii (Oct 3 2020) 

You know what i’m not even going to try explain this, gimme a sec lemme get that synopsis,: ”Having grown up ridiculed for his bizarre name, Nasa Yuzaki strives to be remembered for something more. Fortunately, it seems he's on the right path, ranking first in the nation's mock exams and set to enter his high school of choice.

However, everything changes in a single night when he notices a girl across the street on his way home. Enraptured by her overwhelming cuteness, it's love at first sight for Nasa. But in his infatuated daze, he fails to notice the approaching danger speeding down the road and finds himself at death's door. Barely alive thanks to the girl's intervention, Nasa musters the courage to confess his love to her, fearing she might otherwise vanish from his life. She accepts his proposal on one condition: marriage, to which Nasa gladly accepts before passing out from his injuries. Upon waking, however, the girl is nowhere to be found.

After recovering from his injuries, Nasa tosses his previous ambitions aside and dedicates his life to finding the girl that captured his heart, yet several years pass to no avail. But one night, when an unexpected visitor comes knocking on his door, Nasa finds himself facing a woman that would forever change his world: his wife.”

I mean it’s trash but it’s good trash? 

3. Yuukoku no Moriarty(Oct 11 2020)

Think of Britain in the late 19th century, now imagine Sherlock Holmes expertly tackling crime mysteries in a fashion that would only seem childs play, what? You’ve seen that already? Oh well then imagine an anime that has a master investigator, fire animation and intense ost’s, the Sherlock Holmes of anime! What’s that? There’s already an anime like that? It’s called Conan...well I got nothing then, unless, imagine late 19th century, great Britain, stay with me here and wait for it, instead of having a master investigator...we could have a master crime consultation guy thingy, I know right it’s genius, finally a glorious anime that doesn’t revolve around people powering up for 4 episodes and intense transformations, anime of the year though, nope, but still a really, really good anime.

2. Yashahime: Princess-Half Demon(Oct 3 2020)

Do you feel old, I feel old, wait? I already used that line didn’t I well still you can’t help but feel that feel when you see an anime character you grew up watching end up coming back a couple of years later and end up with a kid, yes… Inuyasha has a kid, the legendary swordsman, actually lived long enough to have a kid, a daughter to be exact, well most anime that tend to do this often don’t come with the same IT factor that the OG show had but with early rating of 7.5 on just the episode 1,it seems safe to say that this isn’t another merch selling show even though low key it is, but rather it’s a show on its own, with its own protagonist her journey into the world as a samurai, I dunno about you but i’m super excited about this one the most, but if you have no clue on the predecessor I highly recommend you check it out.

1. Jujutsu Kaisen(Oct 3 2020)

As a blogger it is my job to strive for equality and do my best to not overhype shows and show favouritism to them, well we're throwing it all out the window here, this is the best anime of 2020, not fire force, not Tower of god, not Beastars and not Dorohedoro, this is going to win anime of the year ladies and gentlemen HGC Abdel has called it here!

Well i’m sure you’re saying i’m just overhyping this right? NOPE! Animation, Ost, Animation, fluid action, animation, the plot, animation, you get what i’m trying to say here? Jujutsu Kaisen is a massive release of fresh air in the world of anime, sure it may might suffer a bit from hey, it’s just another High School Anime with a kid in High School dealing with the problem, but that’s where this anime actually shines, it’s taken a normal everyday concept and completely redefined it, the world building is where it truly shines as each character is given a sort of personality though not robust as anime, you feel as though each character has a sense of belonging in this world, each with their own goal and ambitions and the fight scenes are really well done from the fluid movement to the epic camera spins I mean you simply get entrenched in the anime that by the time the fight is done, you’’ be suffering from a hangover so bad you might miss work tomorrow, but enough hype from me, hurry up and check it out, go hurry, now!

Well that concludes our list of recommended anime to check in October for this season. Hope you enjoyed reading this and if so let us know that we may have missed out on the list and what are your recommendations, we’ll definitely be back to review which of these shows where hits and miss and if you need more anime madness to spice up your life head over to our website and check out what manga, posters and Nendoroids we have to help tickle your wallet i mean taste buds.
