2021 Anime: Here's What We're Looking Forward To Next Year
The 2020 anime season is drawing to a close, which means that it's time to start looking forward to 2021. As of November 2020, we don't know everything that will be dropping in the coming year, but there's already plenty to get hyped about.
Some of the best 2021 anime are sequels to shows we already love. Shonen fans are looking forward to My Hero Academia and Attack on Titan's new seasons, while shojo fans can't wait for the Fruits Basket reboot to reach its conclusion. There are also some brand new shows like Horimiya and To Your Eternity, plus a reboot of an old school series called Shaman King.
