Although the Summer 2021 anime season is just about to start, I can’t help but think about how stacked the upcoming Fall season looks! Let’s see some of the shows we expect to premiere in about 3 months:
Right off the bat, we have Demon Slayer Season 2, which is yet to be officially announced for Fall 2021. However, it has been confirmed for 2021 at the time of its reveal. Winter 2021 season is over, and so is Spring 2021. Summer 2021 starts tomorrow and there’s not much of a chance they would waste all that hype and start it all of a sudden in a few days.
With that said, the story will continue right after the Infinity Train film. Our boys will join the flamboyant Sound Hashira, Tengen Uzui, and move on to the next battle against the demons in the Red Light District Arc. The official synopsis goes:
Tanjiro and his friends accompany the Hashira Tengen Uzui to an entertainment district where Tengen’s female ninja agents were gathering information on a demon before they suddenly disappeared. In order to investigate, Tanjiro and the others disguise themselves as women to sneak in!
You can also watch the trailer, although it’s region locked:
Aniplex Online Fest 2021 is in a few days though. We’re likely to get some news there, so make sure to follow it if you’re interested!
Rudeus will be coming back in October 2021! Mushoku Tensei was originally scheduled for this Summer, but it got delayed. The story will continue after the trio went on their adventure, with Roxy on her way across the ocean. Studio Bind delivered amazing animation for the first part, and it’s exciting to wait for the continuation and probably more intense action and story! Quick reminder of the last episode:
One of the most anticipated anime adaptations of recent times, Komi Can’t Communicate is also confirmed for October 2021. The beloved Aoi Koga (Kaguya-sama, Paimon) will be voicing Komi, and you know it’s going to be wholesome! Fans quickly got hyped, and you can check the official synopsis:
The journey to 100 friends begins with a single conversation. Socially anxious high school student Shoko Komi’s greatest dream is to make some friends, but everyone at school mistakes her crippling social anxiety for cool reserve! With the whole student body keeping their distance and Komi unable to utter a single word, friendship might be forever beyond her reach. Timid Tadano is a total wallflower, and that’s just the way he likes it. He lives to blend in with the background. All that changes when he finds himself alone in a classroom on the first day of high school with the legendary Komi. He quickly realizes she isn’t aloof, she’s just super awkward. Now he’s made it his mission to help her on her quest to make 100 friends!

We have been waiting since 2019, and Naofumi’s story finally continues in October 2021. In addition, there will be a season 3 (confirmed)! The synopsis for the 2nd season goes:
After their battle with Glass, Naofumi and the other heroes have a meeting with the queen and Naofumi is shocked to learn about the seven star heroes. Still reeling from this revelation, more drama unfolds on the islands before Naofumi and his party can return to Melromarc. A massive monster bearing the appearance of a giant tortoise must be defeated. The monster is so powerful that even the mightiest adventurers cannot defeat him so what hope is there for Naofumi?

After a 2 year+ break, Date a Live is coming back with its 4th season! It was announced at the KADOKAWA Light Novel Expo 2020, and it’s confirmed for October 2021.
We enjoyed the first anime season back in 2013, and you can also read the synopsis:
Thirty years before a strange phenomena called a “spacequake” devastated the center of Eurasia, claiming the lives of at least 150 million people. Since then, smaller spacequakes plague the world on a irregular basis. Shidou Itsuka, a seemingly ordinary high schooler comes across a mysterious girl at the ground zero of a spacequake and learns from his sister Kotori she is one of the “Spirits” who are the real cause of the spacequakes that occur when they manifest themselves in the world. He also learns that Kotori is the captain of the airship Ratatoskr and recruits him to make use of his mysterious ability to seal the Spirits’ powers and stop them from being a threat to mankind. However, there is a catch: to seal a Spirit, he must make her fall in love with him.
Originally seen as a 2nd cour of the 1st season, the 86 Eighty-Six continuation is now the 2nd season instead. The story will continue after we saw Shin in a desperate situation and Lena determined to make a difference. We also got a short teaser trailer for the new season:
The next half of the stacked Fall 2021 anime season list will all be new shows, though ones that have a high chance of being awesome:
Another work from the creator of Redo of Healer, although not nearly as extreme. The synopsis for it goes:
The greatest assassin on Earth knew only how to live as a tool for his employers—until they stopped letting him live. Reborn by the grace of a goddess into a world of swords and sorcery, he’s offered a chance to do things differently this time around, but there’s a catch…He has to eliminate a super-powerful hero who will bring about the end of the world unless he is stopped. Now known as Lugh Tuatha Dé, the master assassin certainly has his hands full, particularly because of all the beautiful girls who constantly surround him. Lugh may have been an incomparable killer, but how will he fare against foes with powerful magic?

The upcoming project from WIT Studio, this already looks unique and engaging. Unlike Vivy from this season, it’s not an original anime. Instead, it’s adapting the manga by Sousuke Touka. The synopsis:
The story centers around Bojji, a deaf, powerless prince who cannot even wield a children’s sword. As the firstborn son, he strives hard and dreams of becoming the world’s greatest king. However, people mutter about him behind his back as “a good-for-nothing prince” and “no way he can be king.”
Bojji is able to make his first ever friend, “Kage” (shadow)—a literal shadow on the ground who somehow understands Bojji well. (Kage is a survivor of the Kage assassin clan that was all but wiped out. No longer a killer, Kage now makes ends meet by stealing.) The story follows Bojji’s coming-of-age as he meets various people in his life, starting with his fateful encounter with Kage.

Another upcoming isekai, this also has the potential to mark the season together with Mushoku and Shield Hero. The manga has a devoted following, and the synopsis goes:
In a city of the dead, long since ruined and far from human civilization, lives a single human child. His name is Will, and he’s being raised by three undead: the hearty skeletal warrior, Blood; the graceful mummified priestess, Mary; and the crotchety spectral sorcerer, Gus. The three pour love into the boy, and teach him all they know. But one day, Will starts to wonder: “Who am I?” Will must unravel the mysteries of this faraway dead man’s land, and unearth the secret pasts of the undead. He must learn the love and mercy of the good gods, and the bigotry and madness of the bad. And when he knows it all, the boy will take his first step on the path to becoming a Paladin.

We’re all used to romantic comedies by now, so here’s an interesting premise: A Horror-Comedy! Mieruko-chan is also coming in October 2021, and the synopsis goes:
One day, Miko suddenly started seeing grotesque beings that others couldn’t. Her response was not to run, not to face them, but to do everything she could to completely ignore them! Can she keep a straight face and continue her day-to-day life while surrounded by horrifying monsters?
It has a trailer as well:
