The last 31 days of 2021 will see some of the best anime of recent years returning, there are some much awaited exciting anime upcoming this December such as action-packed JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean and the return of one of the most popular anime series in recent years in the form of the second season of Demon Slayer.
Here are some of our favorite picks for this month in the list below.
Aggretsuko Season 4
The series has now evolved in quite a number of ways since it began and this upcoming season promises to be the best one yet. This season we will get to finally meet the new company CEO, Himoro, who was the center of the season 4 poster. Not only that but Haida has been promoted from being a side character in this anime to having a narrative of his own as he’s seen playing bass in a punk rock band in the trailer.
We are also very curious to see if Retsuko and Haida finally become a couple or if she will just keep turning him down like the past seasons. And what about that wedding scene? We just can’t wait to see how that turns out. Luckily, we only have to wait till December 16th to get all the answers.
JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean
JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is back with Part 6 aka Stone Ocean! For those that don’t know this anime, the series follows the Joestar family line beginning with Jonathan Joestar (JoJo). Because it is an intergenerational storyline, Stone Ocean takes place over 100 years after Part 1 of the series.
In Part 6, the series will follow the life of Jolyne Cujoh who has been sentenced to 15 years at Green Dolphin Street Prison after being framed following a car crash. And good news for the fans, the Stardust Crusaders seem to be back again for this new outing.
If you are really curious to check this series, which is known for its intense action sequences, cultural music references, and art style, you are lucky! It’s finally out on Netflix.
Also as if JoJo couldn’t get any wilder, this part takes place in Florida of all the places.
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Entertainment District Arc
The seven-episode movie recap may have frustrated some who had been waiting for actual “new” events involving the Demon Slayer Corps for quite some time. But finally Season 2 has officially begun.
Entertainment District Arc starts with the group heading to Yoshiwara, a town that has fertile ground for demons. This arc will also feature Sound Hashira, Tengen, alongside Tanjiro and the gang as our heroes run into some nasty and dangerous Upper Moon Demons.
For those who missed one of the biggest anime hits in recent years, Demon Slayer follows Tanjiro, a kid who unfortunately gets thrusted into the world of demons after the brutal murder of his entire family. His sister Nezuko survives, but turns into a demon herself. Tanjiro makes it his goal to cure his sister by hunting down the Demon behind this tragedy.
Fans have been eagerly waiting for a new season for quite some time. However, the wait is now over as Entertainment District Arc is now streaming on Funimation, Crunchyroll, and VRV with a one-hour special premiere.
