Comic Years Podcast: Our Most Anticipated Anime Of 2021
Anime is a year-round thing with more coming out than we can keep track of most of the time. With sequels, reboots, and brand new anime releasing this year, 2021 is definitely a big year for the medium. With every industry taking a hit in 2020, the anime industry is poised to make a huge comeback with a lot of new and returning anime coming out this year. There is a lot to keep track of. So join Taylor Bauer and me on this episode of the Comic Years Podcast, as we take a look at our most anticipated anime of 2021. Taylor and I have a varied list, so check out whose tastes align more with yours.
Our Most Anticipated Anime Of 2021 Is Pretty Different

The coolest part of this episode is how different the choices between Taylor and myself are. Taylor is more of a fan of slice of life anime content featuring everyday situations with comedy, romance, and other real world settings. Whereas, my tastes are more genre anime, franchises, and just general action and fantasy shenanigans. We try to make each of our shows accessible to the audience, and we each definitely sell the other on anime that we never would have watched on our own.
So check us out as we run down our five most anticipated anime of 2021.
More Anime Than You Can Handle
On this episode of the Comic Years Podcast, Taylor and I run down our top five anime of 2021. While Taylor tries to present more long-running anime that are more relatable, I go the opposite approach with new(-ish) anime that are more genre and fantasy. My list includes a returning monster movie franchise in its first anime series. Not to mention another returning Netflix original anime, an original anime and the sequel to a long running classic. Taylor’s list is all about a comedy featuring quintuplets, and an award winning anime returning for a new season. Taylor’s number 1 pick is so intriguing that I’m inclined to check it out myself, despite being of a genre I’m not too familiar with.
