Journeying back to Winter 2019, a remarkable anime season characterized by anticipation, laughter, and delightful hidden treasures.
Anime – a word that sparks joy in the hearts of millions, thanks to its unique blend of artistry, storytelling, and cultural richness. And if we were to hop into our time machine and set the dial to Winter 2019, we’d land amidst a thriving anime season that had fans worldwide eagerly anticipating what was to come. As Polygon reported, the season was brimming with new and returning titles, each promising a unique viewing experience.
The Anime Lineup of Winter 2019
Winter 2019, which ran from January to April, unveiled a stunning array of anime shows, enough to overwhelm newcomers and seasoned viewers alike. But it’s these rich offerings that make the world of anime so fascinating. Let’s not forget, every season brings with it the thrill of an unexpected gem leaping into our arms.
These shows Defined Winter 2019
One title that stood out was the much-anticipated “Mob Psycho 100” (Season Two). Fans had been chomping at the bit since the first season ended in 2016, eager to dive back into the adventures of a seemingly plain boy with potent psycho-kinetic powers. This anime delighted viewers by both hilariously mocking and creatively leveraging common anime tropes, earning its place as one of the season’s funniest entries.
The Promised Neverland
Other standout titles included “The Promised Neverland,” a show surrounded by hype thanks to the celebrated manga it’s based on. Its plot followed a group of orphans who discovered their seemingly idyllic orphanage served a horrifying purpose. The anime leaned into the suspenseful plot and creepy artwork, almost veering into horror territory, ensuring viewers were on the edge of their seats.
“Quintessential Quintuplets,” on the other hand, delivered a twist on the standard romance anime. It followed a high-achieving boy tutoring five sisters, each academically struggling in their unique ways. The protagonist’s jaded outlook and the sisters’ unique personalities and burgeoning relationships made this anime a delightful watch, offering both charm and depth.
Other notable mentions included “Kaguya-sama: Love is War,” “BanG Dream! (Season Two),” and “Kemono Friends (Season Two),” each offering unique plotlines and stylistic features that delighted viewers and contributed to the rich tapestry of the Winter 2019 anime season.
As we reflect on this vibrant period in anime history, it’s clear that Winter 2019 was a fantastic time to be an anime fan, providing us with memorable shows that continue to hold a special place in our hearts.
