Every season and every year, we always have the most anticipated anime season making their debut. And later last year, when it was officially announced that Bleach will be coming back to the screens. Then that became one of the anime that most people are looking forward to. You would remember that after the end of its anime, the manga kept going, and even though fans hoped that someday the anime would continue. It wasn’t like that for many years to follow.

But now that we have the official confirmation, we already know that Bleach is one of the most anticipated anime coming soon. For full details on this, you can read: Bleach Anime Coming Back in 2021. Getting back to the issue at hand, we will be looking at the most anticipated anime season that is confirmed to be coming soon and their release dates.

Some already have their release dates revealed already while some still remain to be decided. So we will take a look at them in chronological order, starting with the most anticipated anime of 2021. This will be the best anime season for fall 2021, as the summer season has been decided upon already.

Most Anticipated Upcoming Anime



The following anime has officially announced that they will be returning to the screens soon. But their release date is yet to be determined. so here we have the best upcoming anime that will have the fans thrilled when they finally start with their broadcast. We have anime like Overlord that has been on a hiatus for a very long time.

Fans have given up any hopes of seeing the anime coming back soon. But now we know for sure that Overlord will return soon even though its premiere date will be decided on later. Let’s take a look at the most anticipated upcoming anime below:

Overlord Season 4 (TBA)

It has been a few months since Overlord season 4 has been announced. Tha anime ended with season 3 years back and went on a hiatus. There was no official confirmation about the future o the anime back then. But now we are glad to announce that the Overlord season 4 release date will be announced in due time. So those who used to ask if Over Lord anime is ever coming back, now you can rest assured, the anime will be coming back for season 4.

Chainsaw Man (TBA)

Chainsaw man will be finally getting an anime adaptation. The anime has already revealed a PV and a trailer that has received a lot of views from the fans. So for those who follow this manga, it will be good to finally see that the manga will be getting an anime adaptation. Chainsawman release date is yet to be announced (TBA)

Other most anticipated anime that will be returning to the screens that you should not miss, include the following:

  • Goblin Slayer Season 2 (TBA)
  • Dr. Stone Sequel (TBA)

  • Code Geass: Z of The Recapture (TBA)
  • King’s Game 2 (TBA)

There is a lot of anime shows that have been announced, and these are just the best of those that will be coming. Most fans have been waiting for these shows to return to the screen and continue with the adaptation of the mang from where they left off. Very few will be new shows. We know there are hit mangas out there that deserve an anime adaptation. So as soon as such shows are given the go-ahead for an anime adaptation, we will share the news accordingly.

We now know what we should expect for the upcoming anime within the foreseeable future. Whilst some anime are ending, it is interesting to see that some are picking up where they left off. Meanwhile, we have brand new shows making their debut. There are still some interesting shows that have not yet been given any future updates.

Anime like Tower of God and God of High School is yet to receive any updates if they are to return in the future with a new season. But we know that given the show’s popularity, then that will be just a matter of time. Anime fans love those shows, so for now, we just have to be on the lookout for any developments.

Then we have anime like Dragon Ball Super, whose manga is still ongoing. So we know that in due time we will get something on the anime side. Because it has been a while since they ended, so fans want something to update them on what could be happening. A lot of shows make such a list, and the latest show to join in is Black Clover. So in the meantime, the ongoing anime seasons will keep us occupied while we wait for further developments to come to light.

That would be all of the updates at this time. But since we are approaching the end of the year, then we should expect more updates on the anime slated for the 2021 fall release as they will be allocated premiere dates soon. Usually, we get such anime from sites like Crunchyroll and Funimation, but we should expect official confirmation together with the broadcasting details soon.
