Action is one of the most popular anime genres out there, and for good reason. Action combines beautifully with just about ever other genre - but without it, you don't have any of the spectacular fights that attract so many viewers to anime in the first place. In 2019, a plethora of awesome new action anime are debuting, so let's take a look at what's coming up.

My Hero Academia's fourth season will come out in October of this year. Just in case you somehow missed this wildly popular anime, here's a quick summary: Izuku Midoriya lives in a world where everyone has a superpower, known as a quirk. Izuku wants to be a hero more than anything in the world, but because he has no powers, that goal seems comically out of reach. When the world's strongest hero, All Might, makes Izuku the heir to his powers, it looks like he might have a chance after all - but the cost may be more than he can handle.
The fourth season will introduce new and terrifying villains, including a yakuza member in a plague mask named Chisaki Kai, as well as awesome new heroes like the Big Three and Fatgum. If you're a fan of the series, you can't miss this upcoming season.
Blade of Demon Destruction is a Spring 2019 anime produced by ufotable, the studio behind many of the entries in the acclaimed Fate series.

She's been transformed into a demon herself, and it's up to Tanjirou to find a way to change her back.
The Rising of the Shield hero offers a dark twist on the usually cheerful isekai genre. When Naofumi Iwatani is transported to a magical world called Melromarc, he's immediately looked at as less-than becauase of the weapon he's destined to use - a shield. Though he experiences condescending barbs and insutls, he can more or less handle it - until a false assault accusation leaves his reputation compeltely in tatters. In order to get back home, he must complete his assigned mission - but when no one else is willing to help him, what chance does he have?
Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? is a cheerful fantasy action anime that's chock full of fanservice. For those who loved the first series, good news! The adventures of the dungeon explorer Bell Cranel and his goddess partner Hestia will continue in the Summer 2019 anime season. What their escapades will be have yet to be announced, but it's sure to be a fun time.
