5 unstoppable Monsoon Anime series to watch in July 2023: Date & episodes
The anime summer vacation season of this year 2023 has already come to an end, with the vast majority of the series finished or about to do so and, in turn, timidly beginning to come together with the first episodes of some of the series that opens. step for the season corresponding to summer. After a magnificent season largely dominated by Oshi no Ko, leaving room for some pleasant surprises like Boku no Kokoro no Yabai Yatsu, Jigokuraku, Tengoku Daimakyou or Skip to Loafer (without forgetting new seasons and spin-offs of Kimetsu no Yaiba, Dr Stone or Konosuba), it is worth asking… What now? What are the animes that we should be signing up for the next few days? Don’t worry, that’s why we’re here, to leave you with some of the most striking recommendations.
To be as “fair” as possible, we have chosen only to dedicate this text to new season animes since we believe that second, third and successive seasons of already famous and established animes would cover practically the entire list if we gave you space between these lines. With that said, let’s get down to business.
The Girl I Like Forgot Her Glasses
Suki na Ko ga Megane wo Wasureta is the one aiming to be this season’s quintessential rom-com. We are facing the typical series of school romance in which a girl with certain problems (in this case of vision) will get closer and closer to her classmate with different situations, which possibly give rise to the spark of mutual affection that, in addition of deriving in ridiculous situations, it will probably end up leading to a beautiful youthful love. It is likely to be released on July 4.
As Ai Mie’s deskmate, Kaede Komura always has her attention on her. Attracted by her pretty charms, all he wants is for her to look at him with those beautiful eyes under her glasses. But just a few days after meeting her, Kaede notices something different about Ai: her eyes are narrowed and her glasses are missing. However, he still finds her adorable!
Unexpectedly, Ai tends to forget her glasses. Having terrible eyesight, she has a hard time getting through the day at school. Fortunately, Kaede is more than willing to help her. As Ai begins to trust him, Kaede’s feelings for her grow even more. Likewise, despite her nearsightedness, Kaede gradually becomes the person Ai always hopes to see.
Liar x Liar
Liar Liar is one of those school anime full of mysterious tests, lies and mind games, where you can expect intrigue and ego clashes, spiced with a little ecchi. It aims to be something similar to, quite possibly, in the style of Classroom of the Elite, Kakegurui, or Tomodachi Game. The new version will be released on July 8.
On Academy Island, everything is resolved through “Games” waged by a certain number of stars, with the strongest student being awarded the Seven Star ranking. Hiroto, a transfer student, unexpectedly defeats the strongest empress and becomes the pseudo-strongest in the school! Start a mind game of lies and deceit!
Reborn as a Vending Machine, Now I Wander the Dungeon
Yes, an isekai, one of many that appear in each anime season (Japan has a major saturation problem with this genre). Maybe it’s not the best, we don’t know yet, but you know what? Of course, it aims to be the most original of the season. In this case, the poor salary man on duty is a vending machine geek who, after being crushed to death by one, makes the usual leap into a world of magic and fantasy, but far from being human, he appears reincarnated as a vending machine. What adventures will the machine and the girl who decides to take it with her have in store? Let’s hope that there are many absurd situations. It is likely to be out in Japan on July 5.
A vending machine fanatic meets his death when he is ironically crushed by a vending machine. To his dismay, he finds himself reincarnated as a vending machine in another world. Having resurfaced within a forest inhabited by frogmen and other monsters, and stocked with only two goods, Boxxo the Vending Machine requires coins to stay stocked, fed, and upgraded with new abilities.
Fortunately, the automaton is rescued by a young woman who quickly realizes that it is intelligent and takes it to a human settlement. Thereafter, the strange piece of machinery has a gradual impact on the world around it, gaining numerous allies along the way despite being completely unable to speak or move and communicate, only playing pre-recorded phrases from the vending machine.
Dark Gathering is a supernatural horror anime of those that we could include in the genre of “people with the ability to see spirits who don’t want to see spirits”, such as Mieruko-chan. Don’t be fooled by the cute aesthetics of its protagonists, especially Yayoi Houzuki, as a handful of terrifying supernatural entities are expected to appear in what may follow an episodic ghost-by-episode pattern. It is set to premiere on July 10.
Keitarou Gentouga is a college freshman who hates ghosts. Unfortunately for him, he has a special ability to attract spirits. Two years ago, this connection led to his receiving a spiritual injury to his right hand, and his friend was caught in the crossfire. The event caused him to become a hikikomori, leaving him with very poor social skills. Fortunately, Keitarou slowly begins to blend in with society, thanks to the help of his childhood friend, Eiko Houzuki.
As part of his rehabilitation, Keitarou takes a part-time job as a private tutor, and his first student is none other than Eiko’s cousin, Yayoi Houzuki. In addition to being a child prodigy, there is another peculiarity regarding Yayoi: she has a spiritual constitution, just like Keitarou. Unlike Keitarou, however, she longs to meet spirits, hoping to find the ghost that took her mother from her. As Yayoi and Eiko drag Keitarou to haunted places, her part-time job seems to be drifting further and further away from her original purpose.
Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout
What can we say about the Atelier Ryza anime? Possibly many of you have already enjoyed the adventures of our beloved alchemist Reisalin Stout (Ryza for friends), a title that would be a new series and that, thanks to the enormous charisma of its protagonist, made the Gust saga enormously popular and Koei, niche, but somewhat fewer thanks to Ryza, managed to carve out a reputation that has led it to be the trilogy that has managed to “democratize” Atelier. Ryza no Atelier: Tokoyami no Joou to Himitsu no Kakurega will cover the events surrounding the first game, Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout. What to expect? Well, whoever has played will already know. Alchemy and a lot of friendship, a kind of “refreshing summer adventure”. This is schedule to release on July 1.
Ryza no Atelier follows the story of Stout Reisalin, a young girl who lives on Kurken Island in search of adventure. She discovers an abandoned rowboat one summer day and heads to the mainland with her friends Marslink Lent and Mongarten Tao. Along the way, Ryza meets the alchemist Vollmer Empel and her companion Decyrus Lila, which sets her on the path of learning alchemy and her intertwined adventures, and she soon learns the truth about her home.
And here is the article! Yes, we’re aware that many anime have been left out, but we would like to recommend some more: Undead Girl Murder Farce, Zom 100. And you, which ones are you looking forward to the most?
