As far as 2018 is concerned, I think most anime fans are blessed since we are getting most of the hyped up sequels so far which will debut their respective  2nd & 3rd season apparently this year along with some freshly baked ready to serve series to blend the taste of every anime fan. There are tons of anime which gonna appear in this year but I’ll try to provide the list of sequels which seems to be hyped beforehand based on popularity.

6. Sword art online : Alicization:-

“It’s totally a different reality with change in flow of time”- yeah you heard it right, this time kirito is going to end up in Underworld, a reality where time flows may be hundredfold slower, and forgets about the real world and his own existence as a world class swordsman. Here he meet some new characters with whom his time defying adventure begins.

According to MAL:” Kirito awakens in a vast, fantastical forest filled with towering trees. In his search for clues to the truth of his surroundings, he encounters a young boy who seems to know him. He ought to be a simple NPC, but the depth of his emotions seem no different than a human. As they search for the boy’s parents, Kirito finds a peculiar memory returning to him. A memory from his own childhood, of this boy and a girl, too, with golden hair, and a name he should have never forgotten—Alice.”

5.Tokyo Ghoul:re:-

“ Who am I? Was I part of some other’s life before? Am I forgetting something important to me?”- These questions are probably on kaneki’s head right now. Even after being survived and  brainwashed, these thoughts crosses his mind oftenly. He’s now part of Arima’s Quinx Squad and lead his own team to hunt ghouls from the society. But it’s not gonna remain same forever.

According to MAL:” Two years have passed since the CCG’s raid on Anteiku. Although the atmosphere in Tokyo has changed drastically due to the increased influence of the CCG, ghouls continue to pose a problem as they have begun taking caution, especially the terrorist organization Aogiri Tree, who acknowledge the CCG’s growing threat to their existence.

The creation of a special team, known as the Quinx Squad, may provide the CCG with the push they need to exterminate Tokyo’s unwanted residents. As humans who have undergone surgery in order to make use of the special abilities of ghouls, they participate in operations to eradicate the dangerous creatures. The leader of this group, Haise Sasaki, is a half-ghoul, half-human who has been trained by famed special class investigator, Kishou Arima. However, there’s more to this young man than meets the eye, as unknown memories claw at his mind, slowly reminding him of the person he used to be.”

4.Nanatsu no Taizai: Imashime no Fukkatsu:-

It’s second season of highly acclaimed series back in 2014.

Meliodas & his Co. along with princess Elizabeth are again on a track of one wonderful adventure unaware of some unknown turn of events.

Seven deadly sin is a group of seven talented most ferocious warriors in kingdom with some exceptional powers, who fights for the welfare of the realm but due to some conspiracy treated as traitors.

Second season’s plot hasn’t yet been revealed but from my speculation it’s gonna revolve around meliodas and his mark on head which appears occasionally since it’s has some serious backstory which needs to be explained in this season.

3.Boku no Hero Academia 3rd Season:-

It’s probably a treat for all boku no hero academia fans that even after 25 episodes of season 2 this year, we are going to have fully fledged season 3 so soon. Midoriya now knows about the origin of his super power and also knows who is real villain pulling strings from behind the curtains. Even towards the end of season 2 his chemistry with Bakugou was pretty good. So I’m hoping to fight them evil side by side as perfect subordinate.

Season 2 was pretty amazing and I hope season 3 would be the same may be better than that since midoriya would be able to fully use his quirk from the very beginning of the Season 3. It’s also a good news that we’re going to have a Movie too this year along with a season So my fingers are already crossed.

2.Shingeki no Kyojin Season 3:-

There are only few gems in anime history which has massive fan following in the entire world and attack on titan is from one of them. After a long break of almost four year we finally got season 2 but that also ended up on a cliffhanger as it only had 12 episodes but the ending was too satisfying but also not as it showed that there is huge war waiting on mankind’s head as the ape titan, who’s also supposed to be a human, waving another war which will again kill several soldiers and is a threat to all mankind. Season 3 might give the answer to various questions raised in season 2 and season 1 such as who might the ape guy from season 2 and what’s the extent of new power that Eren got? It’ll probably gonna answered in this season if they make it around 24 episodes this time, at least that’s what I want. I may sound greedy though!!

1.One Punch Man Season 2:-

This list can’t be completed without this series. It gained huge popularity when first season aired back in 2015. It might not have a serious plot with twists and turns or some flashbacks but the simplicity of the plot is the major key for it’s success. Everyday in the anime is filled with some unexpected events and our protagonist has to deal with it. First season was an splendid journey and I hope second season will also be as good as previous one as the majority of the anime fan are eagerly waiting for this.

 

These are the sequels which gonna air this year. And I hope none of the above will disappoint as they are all mostly hyped series ever. So what do you think about these sequels, please feel free to reply in comment section.
