Top 10 Best Upcoming Anime Series Scheduled to Release in 2021

The year 2020 was especially troubled for anime studios. There were long periods of hiatus, closed studios, productions postponed indefinitely. But it seems that next year will be different and there are a lot of cool things coming in 2021. Check out a list of the best upcoming amine series in 2021.

10 Best Upcoming Anime Series in 2021

1. Beastars – The Good Wolf

It is wrong to think that Brazilians only enjoy crappy anime. Beastars was the most popular Netflix original anime around here in 2019. After a long wait, Legoshi’s life at Cherryton School continues with more mysteries than ever.

There is a new detective trying to unravel the dark events of the first season. Louis left and Legoshi is increasingly lost with his instincts. Will he give in for good or learn to live with his wilder side? The second season opens on January 5 in Japan and hits Netflix in the first quarter of 2021.

2. Eden

Netflix decided to bet on everything in anime and the next on the list is another original production. Eden tells the story of a future where humans have gone extinct and the Earth is inhabited by robots. But everything is about to change when a group of robot farmers meets a little human girl. What happened to her?

In addition to the very original story, this anime promises to be excellent also for bringing a strong team. In the direction, we have none other than Yasuhiro Irie – responsible for Fullmetal Alchemist. The designs were all designed by Cowboy Beebop animation director Toshihiro Kawamoto. It has everything to be a success! The production arrives only in May 2021.

3. Dr. STONE

I am 10 million percent sure that Dr. Stone’s second season will come with everything. Thousands of years after civilization turned to stone, Senku Ishigami and Taiju Oki awoke in a world totally taken over by nature. Now, they will need to face Tsukasa in Stone Wars to decide the direction of the world in the new Stone Age.

Senku wants to use the power of science to awaken people. Tsukasa believes that this is the chance to purify the world that wants to put an end to science. Crunchyroll has released a free episode summarizing the story in preparation for the new episodes, which arrive on January 14th.

4. The Way of the Househusband

The mandatory slice of a lifetime on that list has arrived. Some love to develop characters like no other genre, others hate the slow pace with little action, but what if I tell you it will launch an anime about the daily life of a surrogate husband. Oops, I forgot a detail: he is simply an ex-Yakuza.

The Way of the Househusband will explore everyday situations from the aggressive point of view of a man who has spent most of his life involved with the bloody Japanese mafia. Get ready to laugh with absurd moments when this anime hits Netflix sometime in 2021.

5. The Promised Neverland

The Promised Neverland took everyone by surprise in 2019. Even with child protagonists, the anime has a dramatic streak that is breathtaking. The first season was already very pleasing, bringing a surprising ending.

Now we can finally follow how Emma and the other children will face a new world in the second season. New characters have been confirmed, but we don’t know whether they will be allies or enemies for the children at Grace Field House. We will only find out when the anime opens on January 7th.

6. Cells at Work! CODE BLACK

You may have heard of a certain anime about blood cells fighting invaders in the human body. I know, at first, it seems kind of boring or even too educational, but with a very fun and action-packed script, Hataraku Saibou has won over a loyal audience and will be back for a second season.

But that’s not what I came to talk about! The series was so successful that it will win a derivative Hataraku Saibou Black. The proposal is to explore how things work on a completely worn-out body due to alcohol abuse and other conditions.

7. Attack on Titan

All the secrets of the Titans we’ve been following since 2013 will finally be revealed in the final season of Attack on Titan ( Shingeki no Kyojin ). The war is approaching its peak and Eren Jaeger is to blame. Hero? Villain? How will it end when the story ends?

The new episodes started airing on December 4th, so you can start marathon everything you missed before the final confrontation. The anime, even, will end with the manga. Then everyone will be taken by surprise. The perfect way to start 2021 on the right foot!

8. Monster Incidents: Kemono Jihen

This may be one of the most unknown on this list among novice animes, but it has a good chance of bursting in 2021. Monster Incidents: Kemono Jihen takes place in a world where humans live with ghouls. As a result, of course, hybrids also began to emerge – children of ghouls with a human. The protagonist Kabane Kusaka is one of them.

He was abandoned by his parents at a very young age and ends up joining Detective Kohachi Inugami to try to find them. Together, they will investigate several incidents related to ghouls to try to innocent these persecuted people. From the trailer, the animation looks very well done and we can also expect greatness from the plot. The anime opens on January 10.

9. Shaman King

It was just a matter of time, but it’s good to see that Shaman King is back! With the reboot fashion, this has always been one of the most requested by fans. That’s because the original anime was already very good, but it didn’t adapt all the events of the manga.

The new version will work similarly to Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. We will see again the journey of Yoh Asakura, Anna Kyoyama, and Manta Oyamada from the beginning, only this time it will be much more faithful to the manga. The anime will even have a different ending. The episodes only started airing in April. The way is to hold the anxiety until then!

10. Skate-Leading ☆ Stars

To close in style, let’s talk about a sports anime: Skate-Leading ☆ Stars. Orphans of Yuri on Ice can breathe easy, as we finally have a spiritual successor. It is not a new season, unfortunately, but this new anime also aims to capture all the excitement and drama of ice skating competitions.

This time, the characters are high school students who are still starting to take an interest in skating. So instead of those perfect high-level performances, we will have yet another group of young people trying to find themselves in life. The cast seems very charismatic and the choreography is well executed. Whoever was curious, the first episode just debuted on December 27th.


Here above we have enlisted the titles of the best upcoming anime series that you can watch in 2021. Comment below which anime series are you going to watch in 2021.
