In order to prove themselves right, they make a bet, which soon creates a series of hilarious events. This story of young love centers around the chaotic events with ghosts, monsters, aliens, battles, and so on.

5. Spice and Wolf: Merchant Meets the Wise Wolf

The Spice and the Wolf anime is getting a reboot in Spring 2024. Based on Isuna Hasekura’s Spice & Wolf, the new anime will tell the same story of Kraft Lawrence and his meeting with the wolf-diety Holo. Lawrence, a traveling merchant, finds Holo sleeping in his cart.

She bargains with the merchant to take her along on his travels in exchange for sharing her wisdom of “Holo the Wisewolf” and increasing his profits. Thus, Lawrence’s life turns upside down after taking along an ancient wolf.

4. Blue Lock: Episode Nagi

Blue Lock is one of the most popular Shonen series ever. Blue Lock: Episode Nagi is an upcoming anime movie based on the sports anime that is all set to hit the Japanese theatres on April 19, 2024. The movie is based on the spin-off series following Seishirou Nagi and Reo Mikage exploring their games during the Blue Lock dispute.

Since the Paranormal Liberation War began, Japan has been facing one tragedy after another with the fall of the safe society. This part of the story is still ongoing in the manga, so it’s uncertain where the anime will complete its run when it concludes next year.

1. Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Hashira Training Arc

Finally, we have Demon Slayer Season 4. It’s adapting the Hashira Training Arc, which is the last part of the story before the Final Arc begins. Since the arc is only a few chapters long, the season will adapt scenes from the light novel as well.

Season 4 will be the final season of Demon Slayer, after which the franchise will release trilogy movies for the Final Arc. The Hashira Training Arc will follow Tanjiro and the others as they undergo hellish training to become stronger before the final battle with Muzan and the Upper Moons begins.
