While I am admittedly the kind of person who would prefer to binge watch a show rather than wait weekly for new episodes to be released, there are certain shows every season that take hold of my mind and force me to follow them week after week. There are a few shows that I’m going to be watching during Summer 2019, and I can only hope that they don’t disappoint.
Without further ado, onto the list.
DanMachi is a guilty pleasure of mine. The writing wasn’t super impressive, the show itself was just full to the brim with cliches and fan-service, and the pacing was kind of all over the place, but it never failed to entertain me.
Synopsis: The continued adventures of Bell Cranell, his goddess Hestia, and their allies.
When I first heard that DR.STONE was getting an anime adaptation, I didn’t even know what DR.STONE was. After some research (reading the manga), I was absolutely hype for this show.
Synopsis: One day, a light appears in the sky above the Earth. Then, the light petrifies all of humanity, essentially wiping them from the face of the Earth by locking them in stone prisons. As the very basic facets of civilized life begin to rot and decay, most humans lose their minds.
But Taiju, with the mind of a true shonen protagonist, stays his wits for 1000 years. After he and Senku eventually escape their stones, they free a fellow student named Tsukasa Shishio. As multiple humans get freed and rebuild society, the survivors clash over whether or not everyone out there is deserving of revival. Senku creates a faction to free humanity. Conversely, Tsukasa culls undeserving adults.
Admittedly, I know nothing about this show save for the synopsis. I just thought that the PV looked cool and that I should definitely give this show a shot.
Synopsis: Fire Force takes place in the year 198, where firefighters extinguish living infernos. For some mysterious reason, humans have been spontaneously combusting and transforming into living fireballs.
Shinra Kusakabe joins the Special Fire Force Company to eliminate these fiery threats. Each member of the squad has an ability to control fire in different ways—Shinra has the (seemingly painful) ability to set fire to his feet on command.
I have no reason for wanting to watch this show other than me being a fan of ecchi. Don’t judge me.
Synopsis: The main character, Keiki Kiryuu, suddenly received an anonymous love letter containing a pair of white underwear. He knows that it has to be one of the cute girls around him, but which one is it?
KonoSuba will always be one of my favorite shows. With it’s hilarious cast of characters and ridiculous situations, I can’t help but get excited for the side-splitting laughs I will be obnoxiously letting loose while watching this movie.
Synopsis: Kazuma’s party is suddenly alerted by an outrageous letter delivered by Yunyun. The letter requested that they come to the Crimson Demon Clan’s village. The bunch head on over and make use of their time there, but trouble arises when an enemy general arrives!
I’m about one-hundred percent positive that there will be other shows I watch during the upsoming season, but, as of right now, these are the ones I’m most excited for. If you have any suggestions for other shows I should take a look at, feel free to hit me up.
Until next time, Sayōnara!
