  1. I’m a bit worried about Vinland Saga because the manga is still going on. The ending may be unsatisfying, but everything else up to that point should be good.

    As a manga reader, I’m predicting Dr. Stone will be the star of the season. It’s a bit slow to start, but by, I’d say the third or fourth episode, it’s all smooth sailing for there.

    1. I liked reading Dr. Stone, but lost track of the series. I prefer anime over manga so I was happy that it got the anime treatment. I never read the Vinland manga so I’m hoping the series is great. The anime often don’t catch up to manga if it’s far enough ahead.

  2. To the Abandoned Sacred Beasts sounds especially intriguing story-wise. I’ll be curious to see if Fire Force shares any of the same animation/drawing style as Soul Eater. . .

  3. Those all look pretty good. The Sacred Beasts or Dr. Stone looks like it’d be my favorite from the set. I really don’t know anything beyond the basic premise for all of the above titles though which is how I like to keep it so then the series can hit me with whatever surprises they’ve got in store
