Returning to Anime? The Best Anime Series of 2019 That You Missed

Been away from anime for awhile? We understand. You go out and have your life, anime will always be waiting for you when you come back. They always come back. If you are finally coming back and stopped watching sometime in or before 2019, here are all the best anime series that you missed and definitely should go back and watch.

Dr. Stone

One day, all of humanity was engulfed in light and mysteriously petrified. After a few millennia, two high schoolers awaken and find themselves in a wild world. These two set out to cure those still frozen and kick start civilization.

Dr. Stone grabbed people with the power of science and made a show where you were less interested in any fighting and more interesting in watching the main character invent things. When the world starts at zero, it is awesome to watch the characters make huge leaps in technology all without the glory of the internet or even written knowledge.

Demon Slayer

After the death of his father, Tanjirou has taken up the role of the man of the home, supporting his mother and five siblings. However, after selling charcoal in town, he returns to tragedy. All his family was brutally slaughtered, save for one of his sisters. Unfortunately, she has been attacked by a demon and mingled their blood, turning her into a demon as well. However, she still shows signs of humanity, thrusting Tanjirou onto a quest to find a way to change his sister back and preserve what is left of his family.

Demon Slayer took the world by storm in 2019, and even now after the first season is over, the fandom is still raging and growing. The heady combination of interesting fighting techniques with UFOtable’s notoriously flashy animation really set the hooks in deep. However, the character stories are not to be overshadowed either.


In order to become indomitable on the battlefield, a samurai lord barters his son’s organs away to 48 demons and then abandons him. However, his son doesn’t die. Instead, a medicine man saves him with primitive, but lethal prosthetics that allow him to hunt down the demons and regain his organs for an eventual battle with his father.

As a remake of an ancient series, Dororo had big shoes to fill. However, all it had to do was use modern animation and tell that same, still-good story. It did that. It introduced even pretty long time fans like me to a classic series in a shiny new package.

The Rising of the Shield Hero

The stories tell of four heroes summoned from another world – the sword, spear, bow, and shield heroes who will prevent calamity. With darkness bearing down on them, the Kingdom of Melromarc summons these heroes from modern day Japan. For otaku Naofumi Iwatani, unfortunately he is labeled the shield hero, the weakest of the group. Worse yet, betrayal sees him labeled as a criminal and outcasted. With hatred and vengeance consuming him, he sets forth to grow strong.

2019 threatened to drown us all in isekai series. Like seriously. Stop it. However, Shield Hero was one isekai series that momentarily redeemed the genre because it started in such an unexpected way. The main character is brought to this new world, and suddenly made out to be a villain. It was interesting to watch him struggle, even if his struggles did get ridiculous after awhile.

Astra Lost in Space

Each year, the students of Caird High School are placed in groups for Planet Camp. When group B5 land at their camp site, they are engulfed by a mysterious sphere of light that transports them into the middle of space, 5,000 light years away from home. After discovering an old space ship, they begin their very long journey home.

This is one of those series that you can really get into and promptly forget. Not because it was average, but because it actually had a conclusive ending after only one season. This nice, self-contained story started out with an interesting premise and an even more intriguing mystery. It told its tale and had the bravery to give itself a satisfying ending. If you liked the TV show Lost in Space, this is pretty much that.

Fire Force

A phenomenon has started overtaking mankind – one where people spontaneously combust and turn into destructive fire demons called Infernals. To fight these demons, special fire forces were established full of those with dedication and powers to control fire. This is the story of Fire Force 8 and their newest recruit – Shinra, who aims to become a hero and discover the truth behind the Infernals.

While having the unfortunate lot of starting right around the KyoAni arson attack, Fire Force still managed to shine. It had all the quirks that people expected from the series creator who also made Soul Eater, but brought with it a refreshing new plot about a world threatened to be consumed by fire. The fire animation and the sound used for the flames (the most underappreciated part) really carry this series to greatness.


This is a world of anthropomorphic animals where carnivores and herbivores live side by side with each other. At Cherryton Academy, young wolf Legoshi is a member of the drama club. While he is often called menacing due to his appearance, he wouldn’t hurt a fly. When one herbivore classmate is killed and devoured, Legoshi finds himself as the primary suspect.

You look at this series and, well, you know what sort of person it is aimed at. However, when you watch it, you get something unexpectedly dark and weirdly addicting. The animation can be…distracting at times, but the plot is what the non-furries enjoy this show for.

Vinland Saga

Ravaging every land they touch, Vikings have become renowned for their thirst and talent for violence. Thorfinn, a son of a great Viking warrior, spends his childhood on the battlefield in order to reap his vengeance on his father’s murderer.

Vikings! It is a violent series about manly Vikings fighting each other. It is also a good adaption of the manga. As a Berserk fan, I am so jealous.

O Maidens in Your Savage Season

The girls of the literature club have recently been reading sexually charged pieces of literature. This combined with a newfound interest in adult relationships sends each member spiraling off into the world of sex and intimate relations.

This series is one of those nice series aimed at young women anime viewers. It shows that yes, girls can be perverts and have feelings about sex too. It is essentially watching a bunch of young girls navigate puberty and make their first of many relationships. Sometimes very cringy, but almost always hilarious. Right up until it is touching, anyway.

The Promised Neverland

Grace Fields House is a home for orphans. However, even though they have no blood families, they are all one big family. That is, until the age of twelve when they are adopted out. The kids also know that they are not allowed outside the fenced yard, but one day, two children break that rule. They then discover that the children who are “adopted” are actually subjected to something much darker.

You know, a great way to make a successful anime is to start it off with a really intriguing mystery. This series, combining young children juxtaposed with a horrific potential fate presents many mysteries. You watch, excitedly gripping the edge of your seat, to discover answer. You know the best part, though? It is pretty adept at answering the questions too. Not all mystery series can boast that.

Kaguya-sama: Love is War

Considered a genius, Miyuki Shirogane leads the student council in his prestigious school. Alongside his beautiful and wealth vice president, Kaguya Shinomiya, the two are regarded as the perfect couple despite no romantic relationship. The truth is, however, they both have feelings for each other, but neither can confess. This is the battle of two people trying to get the other to confess first!

There are a lot of romance series out there where two people struggle to confess, but none of them are like this one. Love is War is part romance, but larger part comedy. You get some of those touching moments, but most of the time it is pure hilarious frustration. Furthermore, because both characters are so likeable, you don’t mind whomever wins the bout of the day.

My Roommate is a Cat

Subaru is a novelist, and not very good with people. He’s been alone since his parent’s death, but one day while praying at their grave, a cat comes and eats his offering. Deciding to take it home, he now is shouldered with a cat, and this stray is shouldered with caring for a human who can barely care for himself.

Most anime seasons come with a chill series that you watch and then soon forget. This was the chill series of 2019 that stayed with me. It is about a guy and his cat, each thinking they are taking care of each other. You see the guy’s point of view where he grows past an old trauma with the help of the cat, and you see the cat’s point of view where she takes care of the guy like she used to take care of her siblings.

Domestic Girlfriend

Natsuo is in love with his teacher Hina. In order to try and forget his feelings, he goes to a mixer and meets a girl named Rui. Oddly enough, she asks him to do her a favor – to have sex with her. He does so, but soon he is faced with a unique problem. His father has remarried and he now has two new stepsisters that he knows too well – Rui and Hina.

Domestic Girlfriend is literally like watching a car crash happen. You can’t look away from it and you know it is going to end up in tears. Two girls, cute in their own ways, love the same guy that is now their step brother. It is a show that isn’t afraid to bring the sex element into the show because they realize that it makes things so much more complex compared to just lewd hand holding.

The Quintessential Quintuplets

As his family is in some serious debt, Fuutaro Uesugi is a serious penny pincher. However, his great grades have landed him a higher than normal paying tutor job. The problem is that his five wards, all sisters, are dumb as door nails and think he is a complete idiot. However, to get his pay, he has to think of a way to get these five unique girls to study and learn.

It looks like your generic harem show, and in some ways it is, but it isn’t afraid to take a sledgehammer to some tropes. The best part of the series is it hold a wedding in front of you, but it really keeps which sister playing the bride a mystery. There is no one obvious main girl in this romance, even if you think there is, and that is so refreshing.
