We’re watching The Secret World of Arrietty for April’s Discord Movie Night event. This award-winning fantasy anime comes from Studio Ghibli. Hopefully, this makes up for skipping our previous Studio Ghibli movie night.

DoubleSama’s Watchlist | Winter 2024

Spring 2024 Anime

For the spring 2024 season, I’ll be watching 16 anime — twice as many anime as I did during the winter season. I enjoyed not having to watch very much for three months. But, there are a lot of big series coming out with new seasons this spring.

Continuing Anime
The 3 anime I’m watching that are continuing from the previous season are Delicious in Dungeon, Urusei Yatsura (2022) 2nd Season, and One Piece — which I’m finally caught up on.

New Anime
There are 6 brand new anime I’ll be watching this season. They are Kaiju No. 8, Whisper Me a Love Song, Blue Archive the Animation, Train to the End of the World, Highspeed Etoile, and Spice and Wolf: Merchant Meets the Wise Wolf. Yes, I know Spice and Wolf is a reboot, but it’s a new reboot.

Sequel Anime
Finally, there are 7 anime sequels I’ll be watching. These anime are KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on This Wonderful World! 3, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Hashira Training Arc, That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 3, Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation Season 2 Part 2, My Hero Academia Season 7, Laid-Back Camp Season 3, and Sound! Euphonium 3.
