Angel Links is a 1999 series about a 16-year-old girl who takes over the family business of defending outer space trading companies from pirates. It had a home release before, but its license expired following Bandai Entertainment’s closure in 2012. Funimation picked up the title in 2013, and now, the series is once again up for sale. Black Clover is a 2017 anime about a boy who’s born without magical powers in a world of wizards but still aspires to be crowned the Wizard King. Kino’s Journey -the Beautiful World- the Animated Series is a 2017 series about a young traveller who journeys across the world with a talking motorcycle.

Star Blazers: Space Battleship Yamato 2199 is the 2013 remake of the 1974 Space Battleship Yamato, a science fiction space opera. Cowboy Bebop: The Movie – Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door continues the critically acclaimed story from 1998’s Cowboy Bebop. Releasing in 2001, Cowboy Bebop: The Movie is already out on DVD, but Funimation is releasing a version with a fancy steelbook case. As the name implies, ReLIFE Final Arc is the last story arc from the 2013 ReLIFE anime, a series about a 27-year-old man who participates in a scientific experiment that allows him to relive his high school life all over again.

1999’s One Piece is one of those anime series that seem like its never going to end, encompassing one of the longest, but most engrossing, stories about a young man’s quest to be the next Pirate King. Airing in 2017, A Sister’s All You Need is a slice-of-life story following a young novelist with sister complex and his assortment of friends who are just as strange as he is. The 2018 follow-up to Blood Blockade Battlefront, Blood Blockade Battlefront & Beyond revolves around the detective organization known as Libra who use their supernatural gifts to combat the monsters that stalk their city.

Garo -Vanishing Line- is a 2017 series about a group of knights who hunt down monsters called Horrors. Tales of the Abyss is the 2008 anime based off of the 2006 PS2 game of the same name. The story follows a young swordsman who must escape a religious organization that wants to use him to fulfill an ancient prophecy. King’s Game is a horrifying 2017 series, taking inspiration from the video game of the same name. It follows a high school class that is forced to play “the king’s game,” where failing to follow the king’s orders–regardless of what they are–results in death.
