Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba
|Ufotable’s Kimetsu no Yaiba|
Definitely the biggest new anime title of the year so far, all thanks for its massively perfect animation, great character development, beautiful visuals and efficient charisma towards the anime community. Somehow, I felt like it ended up as overrated but to be honest, it definitely deserves all the praise it gets as the production team behind the anime really worked hard big time for it. I did have an in-depth discussion about Demon Slayer in my review about it on a separate post. However, I have to say this as a short summary; the anime had been a fantastic ride throughout its 26-episode runs with so many high quality animated fight scenes and well-written drama. The entire stint of Demon Slayer eventually made it as one of the best anime of 2019 in our year-end list.

Astra: Lost in Space

|WIT Studio’s Vinland Saga|
From the studio that gave us Attack on Titan, The Ancient Magus’ Bride, and Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress – people are expecting Vinland Saga to be an amazingly animated show and it didn’t disappoint at all. The anime had been a bloody adventure with so much drama, action, and historical cliché especially with the Danes invasion of England during the pre-Medieval period of Europe. Vinland Saga together with other titles in this post such as Dr.STONE, and Fire Force will continue airing as part of the Fall 2019 Lineup, so we’ll definitely see some heavy progress in its story soon.
In the end, Vinland Saga takes home the bacon as it finished as our best leftover (and overall) best anime of fall 2019 lineup in our seasonal review.

Fruits Basket (2019)
|TMS Entertainment’s Fruits Basket (2019)|
This anime had never failed to amaze me in so many ways with its drama and heartfelt delivery of its story. It’s even more amazing how effective its method is, as it was able to touch the heart of the viewers even in simple ways. Tohru is such a relatable girl, and even the other characters reflect a certain side of every human being which makes us relate ourselves and sympathize with their struggles, their triumphs, and daily experiences. The characters were interesting and likable. On my end, I wish I could have best friends like Saki and Aoi, and people to hang around with like Kou, Yuki, and Shigure. Every episode had always been a dramatic ride with so many lessons to reflect our life with.
|David Production’s Fire Force|
If there’s anything that made Fire Force stand out against the other shows in this list, it is definitely its animation quality. David Production didn’t disappoint as usual when it comes to its animation, Fire Force solid animation and visuals, together with its lit music makes it the strongest anime title in the early part of summer 2019 season. Furthermore, Fire Force is returning as one of the most anticipated anime of 2020 for its 2nd season.
