12 New Anime to Give A Chance This Fall

1772 0

It’s that time of year again for a brand new season of anime to begin. Every new season brings with it a fresh, new bunch of anime titles for us otaku to consume. Some look great, some look bad and others have potential but could swing either way. That is what this list is for! These are the new anime coming out this season that I personally think have the potential to be great, or at least, a fun watch. Yes, I know that some of these titles have had their first episode released already (and not all of them I’ve watched), but it’s never too late for a listicle like this.
