Release Date- TBA

When you find out that Zack Snyder is the man behind the concept of Army of the Dead, you cannot but get excited for what’s about to come. Following the team of mercenaries that attempts to evacuate a city after a zombie outbreak.

The icing on the cake comes in the form of several cast members, including Dave Bautista and Ella Purnell reprising their roles. All that remains to be seen is how it turns out to be, but with Zack Snyder at the help, very few things could go wrong.

  • 4) CyberPunk Endrunners-

Release Date- TBA

futuristic city where body morphism is as natural as putting on nail polish and a dystopia of technologically obsessed, CyberPunk has quite an interesting storyline if the initial leaks are anything to go by. In a quest for survival, a kid is forced to turn into a mercenary, also known as CyberPunk.

Granted that the game had quite a few glitches and was not so well received by the public as probably the creators would have wanted to, do not judge this series by the game and definitely give it a try once it comes out.

  • 5) Spriggan-

Release Date- TBA

There has been a lot of anime series where a modern protagonist is transported to a medieval period and has to adjust according to the new way of life. However, what if the complete opposite happens? What if a figure from the past is brought into the modern world?

Well, that is the plot of Thermae Romae Novae, where Roman architect Lucius is troubled with architectural problems and finds a tunnel that leads him to a modern Japanese bathhouse. Inspired, he decides to open a bathhouse of his own- Romae Tharmae. Although this anime was supposed to drop sometime in 2021, production issues led to its release being postponed. However, given the intriguing concept, this is definitely going to be worth the wait.

  • 7) Drifting Home-

A group of friends who mysteriously drift into the ocean with their home in tow. The plot follows Kosuke and his friends, who must now find their way back home after having been left in the middle of nowhere in the ocean.

The third production by Studio Colorido after Spirited Away and Penguin Highway, this is definitely a movie worth waiting for, and given the track record of the studio, is on its way to becoming a definite hit.

Release Date- TBA

The first season came on October 17, 2020, and took the entire anime community by storm. Nobody expected this level of fine blending of a Greek mythological figure with modern storytelling, and now this extremely popular series has been renewed for a new season.

When Zeus defeated the Titans, he was cursed with the task of defeating the giants. Then came the demons. And now Zeus’ son must stop the evil from taking over the world. A tale of betrayal and friendship, this is a must-watch for all mythology fanatics out there.

Release Date- TBA

Even if we’re not movie geeks, Pacific Rim is surely a title that has stuck around more than we expected it to. And for a good reason. Giant robots operated by humans battling extra-terrestrials? Now, who wouldn’t want that? This one’s going to be unique with a kaiju rising from the shores of Australia and a teenage boy Taylor, along with his sister, embarking on a search for their parents.

Given that the last Pacific Rim movie was not such a massive hit, it is a tactical decision by Polygon Pictures to extend the universe into an anime series. This is a series one from which we can expect massive action sequences with an interesting plotline.

  • 10) Dota: Dragon’s Blood-

Release Date- TBA

Let’s face it. DOTA 1 was not such a massive hit, and its series, despite having its moments, lacked a bit in plot and character development. So when Studio Mir decided to extend it into a new season, it probably came as a surprise for many. Granted that this anime was not what we expected from the hugely popular gaming franchise, maybe we’ve judged it too harshly, and it deserves a second chance.

  • 11) Record of Ragnarok (Season 2) –

Release Date- TBA

This is one anime series we could not get enough of. The best of Gods against the best of mortals? Well, that’s a definitive ticket seller.

When divinity and mortality go head to head in a battle to determine the future of humanity, these 1v1 battles are really something. Packed with jaw-dropping action sequences and extraordinary character development, and with serval more battles to be fought, no doubt that it has been renewed for a new season.

  • 12) Beat and Motion-
