After looking at some upcoming new anime for Fall 2018, we’re continuing our preview of the upcoming season with the returnees. These include the new seasons, reboots, and spin-offs. If it had an anime adaptation before, be it movie, OVA, or TV anime, we’re including it for consideration in this list! After much discussion, we’ve finally decided on seven returning titles, and they are:

A Certain Magical Index Season III

Attack on Titan fans may have waited for four years to get their second season, but Index fans waited longer. Yes folks, it’s been seven years since the last Index anime, and no, we’re not including Railgun in the consideration.

Sword Art Online: Alicization

Yes folks, Mary Sue… I mean Kirito is back! This time, the anime will be adapting the Alicization arc, which was longer than ALL the previous arcs… COMBINED.

Double Decker! Doug & Kirill

This new anime is a spin-off of the mega-hit hero series, Tiger & Bunny. But instead of focusing on two heroes, this one would be an actual buddy cop show focusing on detectives Doug and Kirill.

Gakuen Basara

Much like the original Sengoku Basara, this one will feature real samurai from Japan’s Sengoku period. However, what makes this series different is that it reimagines the samurai as high school delinquents. Yeah, we’re basically excited to watch this for the lulz.

Fairy Tail (Final Season)

It’s finally the final season of Fairy Tail, is there any more reason why not to get excited?

Tokyo Ghoul:re 2nd Season

The first season left us hanging, and now, we’re finally getting that continuation. What happens to Kaneki and friends? Well, looks like we’re about to find out in October…

Golden Kamuy Season 2

Much like Tokyo Ghoul:re, Golden Kamuy’s first season also left us hanging. And with the continuation, we would certainly get more answers about that lost gold, as well as see more of those amusing Asirpa faces.

So, that’s our picks for this season’s returning anime, spin-offs, and reboots. You can also check out our picks for the new anime of Fall 2018!
