List Rules Vote up the Winter 2019 anime that you're most excited to see.

The Winter 2019 anime season has just begun, and with it comes a ton of new anime. Pause your endless journey to catch up on One Piece, because there are some new shows to pay attention to. 

Among the best winter 2019 anime are completely fresh series like Dororo, which is based off of a manga by the father of all anime, Osamu Tezuka, and The Promised Neverland, which seems poised to be the kind of series you'd get if you took Kazuo Ishiguro's Never Let Me Go and made it a thousand times more horrifying. There are also some hotly anticipated sequels coming up, including Mob Psycho 100 2 and Date Alive 3. Not only that, but there's also plenty of great movies, including a deliciously tragic romance called Ashita Sekai ga Owaru toshitemo, and not one, not two, but three Psycho-Pass movies. Oh, and there's also a reboot of an early 2000s classic, Boogiepop Never Laughs. 

With such a great lineup, you probably want to know what the Winter 2019 anime release schedule looks like. Look no further, because it's all listed right here. Vote up the new anime that you're the most hyped about.
