2020 has been one heck of a year. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many anime studios have delayed the production of some most-awaited anime.
Among all this negativity, there’s plenty of good news to look forward to. Some popular anime shows are all set to release in 2021. Let’s take a look at each of them one-by-one:
Great Teacher Onizuka or most commonly known as GTO tells the inspiring story of a 22-years old punk and criminal turned educator.
Throughout the series, he suffers plenty of hurdles such as a frazzled leader, his past demons & stubborn classmates. He does not believe in giving up & works hard to become a truly excellent teacher.
That’s why I said earlier, it’s an inspirational story where a thug transformed himself to become a reputed teacher.
Further, GTO anime is full of ghosts, supernatural creatures, and emotional scars. The entire time in the anime, he’ll be anxious to get his humanity back and discard all of these supernatural phenomena.
Based on the South Korean Web Novel by Chugong, Solo Leveling’s main plot revolves around a gate that connects the real world with the realm of monsters and magic.
Then to fight off against these monsters, humans received superhuman powers to become hunters.
As the story progresses, it follows the world’s weakest hunter Sung Jin-Woo. Still, the 22-year-old hunts low-rank gates to pay for his mother’s medical bills.
Then one day everything changes for him as he found himself in front of a mysterious screen floating in a hospital after a mission went wrong.
The Mysterious screen or “Quest Log” demanded Jin-Woo to complete an intensive training program or face a tough penalty. Then in order to become the world’s most fearsome hunter, he agrees to do the complete program all by himself.
After an explosive Grand Blue Season 1 on Amazon video, fans are demanding season 2. Grand Blue is the story of the main character Iori Kitahara. He moves to his uncle’s ski diving store (Grand Blue) to begin his new life.
However, a shock awaits him there as he finds a local Diving Club. The club includes a group full of buff men who spend most of their time partying, drinking & stripping naked. They do all this except the actual diving.
He tries his best to stay away from this group but ends up falling for their antics. To make sure, Lori’s appropriate distance from the group, his cousins try to show him the wonders of diving into the ocean and sea. Just like the manga series, the anime series did fairly well on an online video streaming platform. Grand Blue manga series has ample content available. So, it’s highly likely that we’ll see Grand Blue Season 2 sometime in 2021.
