2016 is already upon us, and there are some anime that people are definitely most excited for. We pick five upcoming anime which have us really hyped for this year. These five anime don’t belong to one particular season, or is also not limited to just TV anime, so without further ado, here they are:
Danganronpa 3: End of Hope’s Peak Academy
While many are not happy with Danganronpa 2 being skipped over, we are still quite excited for this new Danganronpa anime, which will be an original story not found in the previous games. Set after the firsy two Danganronpa games, we see a taste of the future with more mature versions of three of the original’s survivors.
We already saw that “early version” of episode one, and that is enough for us to be hyped for this anime, which is scheduled for Spring 2016. Like all the other Macross series, this one blends the elements of music and mecha, which have proven to be a great combination. If you are a fan of idol anime like Love Live! and iDOLM@STER, but also a huge fan of mecha anime like Gundam and Aldnoah.Zero, then this one is for you!
My Hero Academia
This quirky hero anime promises to be the next big Shounen Jump! hit, and with Naruto now over, My Hero Academia is already poised to take its place as one of the top shounen anime, alongside One Piece, Naruto, Gintama, Dragon Ball, Hunter x Hunter, and all the other classic Shounen Jump! anime.

Tales of Zestiria: The X
Tales of Zestiria: The X (read as “The Cross”) is actually part of the 20th anniversary celebrations of the Tales of franchise. Why are we excited for this one? ONE: We have actually played the game (OK, not all of us here at SGCafe), and have loved it, and TWO: ufotable, known for their beautiful animation, are the ones adapting the game into an anime.
