Alright, so the Winter season of Anime was a little underwhelming – especially coming from 2019 where it seemed a new hit series was revealed every season. So I suggest we move one and look ahead because the future of anime is definitely bright. Without further ado, here are my 9 most anticipated anime for the spring season.
