That’s it, boys and girls. Another anime year is over. MT will start 2019 covering 15 titles for our trademark weekly reviews, the most interesting on the anime web! Our writers, instead of over-analyzing each frame and discussing the animation techniques, focus on writing about what makes anime fun to watch! We love anime because they make us feel good, and MANGA.TOKYO wants to leave out all the unnecessary jargon and talk about the scenes that made us laugh and cry, the characters that pleased and annoyed us, the stories that inspired us to do and be more.
This article has a list of the titles we will review this season, a few words about our writers, and an introduction to our articles and regular columns, just to get a taste of what MANGA.TOKYO is all about! Couple that with our Anime Info page and our constant coverage of all the latest anime and otaku news, and you have everything you need to get through the anime winds!

Don’t forget to check our first impressions for all the new titles of the season:
Radiant is a peculiar story in the Japanese anime industry because it is neither an anime original nor Japanese. It is based on French comic that was inspired from shounen stories and which found success in the Japanese market. It looks like a weird version of Black Clover and that’s how it will probably go.
JoJo continues its adventures into Winter 2019. This is the only part that focuses not on a JoJo, but on a GioGio!. If you’ve been following our articles, you already know that Giorno’s crew is colorful and peculiar and we will have so much fun learning more about them and their Stands.
Who doesn’t like a cute story and it doesn’t get cuter than this: The protagonist is a guy who is socially awkward and who finds a way to connect to the people aroung him through a stray cat he brings back home.
It’s always nice to have a mecha show in every season, and this time MT is going to review not just one but two (along with The Price of Smiles). The director has also done Code Geass and Planetes so we are expecting some serious mecha action.
If you’ve heard of Boogiepop Phantom, then you must already expect a level of mind-bongling wierdness to come from this show. The anime is a remake that will start with the first Boogiepop light novel.
Our isekai pick of the season is not your usual isekai. Part of a sub-genre called revenge isekai, the protagonist is betrayed the moment he enters the new world and takes his time preparing his revenge.
Dororo is an adaptation of a really old manga by one of the most important creators, Osamu Tezuka. With an interesting story that deserves a modern audience, the series is a big gamble on how older manga can be translated on screen using modern techniques.
Thanasis:After satisfying his tokusatsu urges with SSSS.Gridman,he will wait patiently for a second season (he clearly likes Akane and Rikka a bit too much) by reviewing what he feels will be one of the best series of the season, Dororo.
Asie:You’ll never find Asie leaving her favorite genre. This season, she will continue reviewing Radiant!
Christina: Chris is a bit too happy that Double Decker! Doug & Kirill. is over but she is very sad to see the end of Golden Kamuy. To calm her inner beast, Thanasis trusted her with continuing his reviews of Kakeguruiduring its second season. She will also follow the second season ofMob Psycho 100.
