New Fall 2018 Anime Series And Movies: What To Watch And Where (US)

September 30 ends the Summer 2018 anime season. Although it’s sad to see the conclusion for several stellar anime, like Planet With and My Hero Academia Season 3, we can find comfort in the knowledge that a bunch of new anime series and movies will begin airing on Netflix, Amazon, and other streaming services.

There are a few series and movies you’ll definitely want to check out this fall season. You should add Crunchyroll’s Goblin Slayer to your queue–especially if you’re a fan of Dark Souls. Goblin Slayer is a dark fantasy about an inexperienced priestess, called Priestess, who’s saved by a male adventurer named Goblin Slayer after her entire party is gruesomely butchered in front of her. Priestess decides to travel with Goblin Slayer to learn more about him, and on their journey she meets High Elf Archer, Dwarf Shaman, Lizard Priest, Cow Girl, Witch, and Spearman. The series begins airing on October 6.

Other series to look out for are That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime and SSSS Gridman. The former launches on October 1, with the original Japanese version on Crunchyroll and the English dub on Funimation. The latter comes out on Funimation on October 6. Slime is an isekai–a story where a normal person is transported to another world–that’s about pretty much exactly what the name implies, and Studio Trigger’s Gridman is an anime remake of Gridman the Hyper Agent, a series about three kids creating a video game superhero. Golden Kamuy and Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure also return with new seasons this fall.

The full list of anime series and movies that are confirmed to premier this fall on Amazon, Crunchyroll, Funimation, and Netflix are listed below. Oddly, HiDive doesn’t seem to be streaming any new shows this season as only the English dub of both Princess Principal and Armed Girl’s Machiavellism are slated on the site’s fall schedule. Sentai Filmworks, the company that owns HiDive, recently acquired the exclusive distribution rights to Bloom Into You, a love story between two high school girls that also addresses the pressures of living with low self-worth and understanding asexual love, but no announcement has been made as to when the anime will air. We’ll update the list if additional titles are announced.
