The continuation of this anime was expected for 2021. After its huge success from two years ago, The Promised Neverland is coming back with a new season.

The first episode was released on the 7th of January so buckle up, anime fans, things are getting real!
Please don’t bully me, Nagatoro-san!
When I saw that this manga is getting an anime adaptation I could not be happier! If you like comedy and teasing the ones you like, this anime will tickle your fancy.

The first episode will air in April this year!
Uzumaki is a classic coming from Junji Ito. After the “Junji Ito Collection” anime adaptation we haven’t expected any other anime adaptations, but in 2021 Uzumaki is coming! The horror mini series will be aired this summer. Uzumaki is telling the story of a fictional city plagued with a supernatural curse involving spirals. With lots of interesting symbols, this mini series will twist our minds!
This manga is speculated to get an anime adaptation in 2021 even though this wasn’t really expected. The manga is pretty young, originally running between December 2018 and December 2020. Remains to be seen if we will truly get an anime out of this devilish manga. The horror and action in this manga would look really interesting as an anime. Until then, why don’t you try reading it? I promise you, it’s a really good story with great story writing and artstyle!
Beastars Season 2
I knew it was coming yet have I expected a second season from this anime in 2021? Of course! Beastars is a really controversial anime and manga series, with the whole artstyle, the storytelling, the characters and even with the choice of CGI animation. Yet, the first episode aired on 7th of January and Beastars fans could not be any happier! To give you a little teaser, just listen to the opening. Catchy, innit?
