Nanatsu no Taizai, or the Seven Deadly Sins, are the most ragtag team of knights you'll ever meet, but you're bound to love them. In fact, Meliodas and his buddies are so loved that Nanatsu no Taizai was one of the top-selling media franchises of 2018!
Nanatsu no Taizai: Kamigami no Gekirin will follow our Knights as they continue to face off against the Ten Commandments. The bigger question though, is, will Meliodas and Elizabeth finally have their happy ending?
Nanatsu no Taizai: Kamigami no Gekirin will debut on Oct 9, 2019.
Shokugeki no Soma, or Food Wars!, is serving up its fourth plate! This was one of the most popular anime to come out of 2015 and its popularity does not seem to be waning as it enters its fourth season. The manga officially ended its run just a few months back in June, so it is entirely possible that this might be Yukihiro Soma's last hoorah.
In Shokugeki no Soma: Shin no Sara, the advancement exams continue! Will Soma be able to save him and his friends from expulsion and graduate from the academy?
Shokugeki no Soma: Shin no Sara will debut on Oct 12, 2019.
If you were left on the edge of your seat at the beginning of this year when the first Sword Art Online: Alicization arc ended, buckle up! The next cour is being released in October, which means that we'll finally see what happened after that massive cliffhanger.

Sword Art Online: Alicization - War of the Underworld will debut on Oct 13, 2019.

Information on the plot of the new season has been scarce, but the gist of it is that we will follow two new rookies of the Public Safety Bureau trying to navigate the Sybil System. Interestingly, instead of the typical sixteen episodes that we are used to with most anime, Psycho-Pass 3 will only have 8 episodes, each an hour-long.
Psycho-Pass 3 will debut on Oct 25, 2019.

Cue the Zootopia comparisons! In the anthropomorphized world of BEASTARS, carnivores and herbivores live in peace, though there's an underlying tension between the two groups. Legoshi is the main character of the series, a kind and gentle gray wolf and member of the drama club. He eventually finds himself tied up in a murder mystery when his friend is found dead.
Throughout the anime, we follow Legoshi's investigations as he tries to find out who murdered his friend, all the while navigating societal tensions and his feelings for a fellow classmate, the dwarf rabbit Haru.

Enjoy cyberpunk anime? Enjoy quirky anime with fascinating premises? Then you'll probably want to catch No Guns Life, a crime anime featuring a private detective that has a gun for a head.
Set in a post-war future where cyborg soldiers ('Extended') have been discharged into civil society, our gun-head, Juzo Inui, makes a living solving crimes. When he is suddenly approached by a friend on a run to help keep a kidnapped child safe, he is thrust into an increasingly dangerous world.

We Never Learn, or Bokutachi wa Benkyou ga Dekinai, is a rom-com anime with a harem. In many ways, it's a formula that's been tried and tested. Yet, we keep coming back for more.
In the first season, we were introduced to Nariyuki Yuiga, a poor high school student who works hard to receive a college scholarship. He receives it on one condition: he has to tutor some of the school's smartest students in their weakest subjects! We expect the same hilarity and antics in the second season as Yuiga attempts to teach his three tutees and help them towards their own goals.
We Never Learn (Season 2) will debut on Oct 6, 2019.
The Fate multiverse is vast, spanning anime series, video games, light novels, and more. It is also incredibly popular, with the Fate/Grand Order mobile game being one of the most profit-generating titles in the world. The latest to come out of the franchise is the Absolute Demon Front: Babylonia anime, a standalone series that focuses on the Fate/Grand Order game's seventh chapter.
Fate/Grand Order: Zettai Majuu Sensen Babylonia will go back to the reign of King Gilgamesh, who is fighting off an invasion of strange demons. If you're unfamiliar with Fate and its characters, we're not sure if jumping into this will make sense, but it's probably worth a shot.
Fate/Grand Order: Zettai Majuu Sensen Babylonia will debut on Oct 5, 2019.

Here is yet another quirky anime to look forward to in the Fall 2019 anime lineup. Japanese pro wrestler Shibata Genzo is an animal lover who is suddenly magically summoned to a fantasy world by a princess. She has a simple request: help her get rid of evil beasts that are roaming the world. Unable to bear the thought of killing animals or monster, Genzo instead sets up a 'monster' pet shop.
A ridiculously buff dude running a monster pet shop? Yeah, this is definitely on our watchlist.

In the Azur Lane mobile game, players collect characters, or 'shipgirls', that are essentially anthropomorphized battleships. In the anime, young women are created to have the power of warships and other war-crafts, to fight off alien invaders known as 'Sirens'.
The anime starts off after the successful elimination of the 'Sirens'. However, instead of peace, the Azur Lane alliance now faces a new threat: the Red Axis.
