10 of the Most Highly Anticipated Anime of 2024

In 2024, anime enthusiasts can anticipate an enticing lineup of new series. Below, find a compilation of the top 10 upcoming anime series generating high anticipation.

Certainly, 2023 proved to be a thrilling year for anime enthusiasts, offering a blend of sequels like Vinland Saga and Jujutsu Kaisen alongside fresh additions like Oshi no Ko and Frieren.

Naturally, anticipation runs high for the forthcoming year, which promises an array of captivating series. While the Winter and Spring seasons have unveiled the majority of their offerings, some series are still awaiting confirmation of their release dates.

From eagerly awaited sequels to intriguing newcomers, we present a rundown of the ten most eagerly anticipated anime series set to debut in 2024.

Most Anticipated Anime #10 - Kaiju No. 8

The popularity of the giant monster kaiju genre has reached unprecedented heights, with films like “Godzilla Minus One” exceeding box office expectations. “Kaiju No. 8” offers a unique blend of colossal creature chaos and shonen tropes, particularly when Kafka Hibino undergoes a transformation into a human-kaiju hybrid. Set in a world accustomed to kaiju attacks, society has established an infrastructure to manage these calamities.

The Japanese Defense Force combats these monsters, while cleaners handle the disposal of their remains. Kafka, a humble cleaner, dreams of joining the frontline defense against these creatures. Through an accidental ingestion of a rogue kaiju, Kafka gains newfound abilities and vows to utilize them in combating the monsters. “Kaiju No. 8” delivers a captivating mix of action, intrigue, and well-developed characters, presenting a refreshing evolution of both the kaiju and action genres.

Most Anticipated Anime #9 - Suicide Squad Isekai

Superhero adaptations have reached unprecedented levels of popularity, with certain properties, such as DC Comics’ Suicide Squad, attaining remarkable success. With celebrated feature films and an upcoming video game, Suicide Squad has solidified its place in pop culture. Adding to its diverse portfolio, Wit Studio is currently producing an anime adaptation set to captivate audiences in 2024.

Suicide Squad Isekai will introduce DC characters like Peacemaker, Deadshot, King Shark, and Clayface, but it’s evident that the anime’s focal points will be Harley Quinn and the Joker. The series presents a whimsical narrative where this tough-as-nails crew of mercenaries finds themselves transported to a fantasy realm with vastly different rules and priorities.

The prospect of Harley Quinn facing off against dragons and other quintessential isekai elements is reason enough to give this unexpected DC property a chance. Suicide Squad Isekai aims to entice viewers with its unconventional premise, but there’s potential for substantial character exploration beneath the surface, transforming it into a thought-provoking deconstruction of its protagonists.

Most Anticipated Anime #8 - That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime season 3

This is yet another classic isekai story that has garnered immense anticipation for the spring 2024 anime season due to its straightforward yet compelling premise. Adding to the excitement, 8Bit Studio, the company renowned for the recent Blue Lock anime adaptation, has announced the release of the third season on April 5 of this year.

Among the confirmed cast members for this upcoming season are Manami Numakura as Hinata Sakaguchi, Asuna Tomari as Gobta, Takahiro Sakurai as Diablo, Takuya Eguchi as Souei, Mao Ichimichi as Sion, and Chikahiro Kobayashi as Ranga.

Most Anticipated Anime #7 - KonoSuba Season 3

In April 2024, Konosuba is set to make its triumphant return with a third season. The series experienced a significant resurgence in the past year, launching a complete anime adaptation of the Megumin spin-off novel series, “An Explosion on This Wonderful World.”

Additionally, it has been confirmed that the main TV anime series will be back for its eagerly awaited third season. The initial trailer offers a glimpse of the myriad new misadventures awaiting Kazuma and his companions.

Most Anticipated Anime #6 - Mushoku Tensei II part 2

The must-have spring 2024 anime lineup wouldn’t be complete without an Isekai entry, and Mushoku Tensei stands out as one of the most notable in recent years. Despite the genre often falling into repetitive tropes over the past decade, this Studio Bind production has injected a breath of fresh air into the industry.

Scheduled to premiere on April 8 of this year, Mushoku Tensei will continue Rudeus Greyrat’s journey in this fantastical realm, chronicling his second chance at life along with the myriad challenges and friendships that accompany it.

Most Anticipated Anime #5 - Black Butler Season 4

The resurgence of Black Butler, a beloved anime from the late 2000s that has attained cult status, caused quite a stir with its announcement of a comeback. Season 4 was revealed alongside a new promotional video on February 15, 2024, promising to delve into the Public School arc.

This revival stands as one of the most highly anticipated additions to the spring 2024 anime lineup. It’s noteworthy to mention that while A-1 Pictures, the studio behind the previous adaptations, won’t be involved in this iteration, CloverWorks, renowned for productions like Fairy Tail and Spy X Family, will helm this adaptation.

Most Anticipated Anime #4 - Dragon Ball Daima

Dragon Ball Daima, a new addition to the Dragon Ball franchise, is slated to make its debut in October 2024. The announcement was made during this year’s New York Comic Con. Based on Akira Toriyama’s manga, the series follows Goku and his comrades, all mysteriously transformed into children.

The origin of this puzzling conspiracy remains shrouded in mystery. Now, our heroes must embark on a quest to reverse the curse responsible for their transformation. Toriyama assures fans that their journey will unveil new secrets within the Dragon Ball Universe.

Dragon Ball Daima promises to present Goku in a fresh light, as series creator Akira Toriyama sends the hero back to his youth. In celebration of Dragon Ball’s 40th anniversary, Daima will deliver an original story set apart from the current continuity, offering a reimagined experience for both new viewers and devoted fans alike.

Most Anticipated Anime #3 - Oshi No Ko Season 2

The Oshi no Ko anime made its debut in Spring 2023 and quickly became an online sensation. The story follows a renowned idol named Ai, who tragically falls victim to one of her psychotic stalkers, resulting in her murder. However, as the narrative unfolds, it becomes apparent that there is a mastermind behind the crime.

Season 2 is set to premiere in 2024, although an exact release date has yet to be announced. The first season adapted four volumes of the manga, encompassing a total of 37 chapters.

Most Anticipated Anime #2 - My Hero Academia Season 7

In 2024, alongside a plethora of completely original anime series, the year is poised to showcase the return of numerous titles with established fan bases. While the announcements of new Urusei Yatsura and Bleach: The Thousand-Year Blood War adaptations are thrilling, it appears that the upcoming seventh season of My Hero Academia is generating the most buzz.

My Hero Academia has consistently improved and matured with each season, and Season 7 is set to cover pivotal arcs from the manga, including the Star and Stripe Arc, U.A. Traitor Arc, and the beginning of the momentous Final War Arc. The escalating conflict between Izuku Midoriya, Tomura Shigaraki, and All For One has been nothing short of riveting. The upcoming season of this shonen series is expected to elevate this narrative to its peak, promising to deliver some of the anime’s most intense fight sequences yet.

Most Anticipated Anime #1 - Demon Slayer Season 4

Undoubtedly, Demon Slayer stands as one of the most popular franchises in recent years; however, it currently finds itself in an intriguing position. While it remains one of the most anticipated spring 2024 anime, the third season garnered a mixed reception last year.

A contributing factor to the less-than-stellar reception of season three was the story arc it adapted, Swordsmith Village, which wasn’t regarded as one of the manga’s strongest arcs. The upcoming fourth season is set to adapt the Hashira Training arc, serving as a transitional storyline leading to the series’ final arc.
