New Fall Anime Streaming On Netflix, Crunchyroll, Amazon, Funimation, And HiDive (US)


We’re completely in the fall 2018 anime season, so a bunch of new series and movies have begun airing on Netflix, Amazon, Crunchyroll, Funimation, and HiDive. With all the new anime, we’ve outlined what we think you need to add to your watch list.

Bloom Into You is a must watch. This love story between two high school girls also addresses the pressures of living with low self-worth and the struggles of understanding asexual love. Despite the heaviness of the story’s drama, there are both brief snippets of hilarity and quiet moments of internal resilience that draw you into the changing dynamic between the second-year student council president who can’t escape her dead sister’s shadow and the young first-year who dreams of falling in love but doesn’t feel the emotions that love stories say a young girl should. Bloom Into You is debuting exclusively on HiDive (in both Japanese and English dub) and premiers on October 5. This fall, HiDive is also airing episodes of the English dub of Princess Principal, one of the best anime from 2017.

You should also add Crunchyroll’s Zombie Land Saga to your queue–even if you’re not a huge fan of idol anime. Zombie Land Saga is a hilarious comedy about a young girl who’s killed by a truck and then revived as a zombie by a wannabe idol producer. The anime dips its toes into common idol tropes–like in-team drama–as well as popular zombie story stereotypes–like an eccentric scientist–to create something truly bizarre. The show will have you laughing by the first episode, though.

Other new anime to look out for are That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime and Ms. Vampire who lives in my neighborhood. The former can be found in the original Japanese on Crunchyroll and in English dub on Funimation. The latter can only be found on Crunchyroll. That Time I got Reincarnated as a Slime is an isekai–a story where a normal person is transported to another world–that’s about pretty much exactly what the name implies. Ms. Vampire who lives in my neighborhood is a cute story about a middle-school girl who moves in with a centuries-old vampire that looks to be no older than a high school first-year. It tackles the “but where are the parents” problem that most anime have with a humorous twist, and flips the regular person meeting a vampire dynamic by having the normal girl be the strange one. Zombie Land Saga may elicit a laugh or too, but Ms. Vampire who lives in my neighborhood is primed to be the funniest anime this season. Golden Kamuy and Castlevania–both excellent anime–return this fall with new seasons, the former on both Crunchyroll and Funimation and the latter on Netflix.
