In the world of anime, this year is one of the most exciting years in a long time! Not only will we get to see some of our favorite anime titles return for new seasons, but we will also receive many new anime titles that many have been waiting to be adapted for a long time. What's more, this year seems to be introducing more mature anime, which could be a good sign for other genres that are often neglected (i.e. josei and seinen).
Anime fans have to see what's in store for us in 2024. But they don't have to wait at all to find out which anime they shouldn't expect to see back on their screens.
Without further ado, here are the 5 anime we aren't expecting to return!
1. Attack on Titan
Sorry friends! This time, Attack on Titan meant it when it said this was the final season they would air ever again. After all, the anime ran for a whopping ten years, so it was bound to come full circle eventually.
At the beginning of the anime series, our protagonist, Eren Yaeger, swore to wipe away all titans who were wreaking havoc on his friends and allies. Down the line, he realized that it wasn't that the very titans he was determined to slay were some of his closest friends. And then, finally, in the final season, Eren realizes that, titan or not, the only people he wants to see alive are those he knows are his trusted friends; everyone else, no matter the age or location, can be crushed by his great army of colossal titans.
Eren having one important epiphany after the other marked the beginning of the end, as he matured from a clueless, powerless young boy into a young man who knew that with age comes the making of more and more difficult decisions.
By the last time we saw Eren, his journey was nearing its end, as were the journeys of many other characters. There wasn't much left to witness except for the tying up of a few more loose ends that included (but weren't limited to) Eren and Mikasa Ackerman's true feelings for one another, Levi Ackerman finally getting his revenge on the Beast Titan, and, most importantly, the state of all those who were unfortunate enough to get wrapped up into the mess that was The Rumbling.
Like the manga, Attack on Titan has reached its end. And thus, we must bid a somber and final farewell to this masterpiece.
