Anime are Japanese animated series that are popular all over the world. Although anime is described as a cartoon in many parts of the world, it is never a cartoon. Cartoons are mostly for children, but anime is made for all age groups. Even, mostly we can say that it is not suitable for children. However, the most important point that distinguishes it from cartoons is that Japanese animation studios animate with special manga illustration techniques.

Anime is mostly adapted from manga or light novels, which are visual and written works in Japan. So what is the manga exactly? Manga is comics that use the same drawings, just like anime. Although it started to be popular in the early 2000s, manga and anime, culture dates back to much older.


As you can understand from our website’s name, we closely follow the anime media and share the next season’s rumors, renewals, and anime release dates with you. So how do we do it? It is mostly not clear whether many anime will have a new season. Most of the time, animes end their broadcast life before making a final. The reason for this is that the vast majority of the dozens of anime released every year are advertising manga or light novels, and very few of them are financially sufficient for a second season alone.

We analyze whether there will be a new season of anime for you. While doing this, we are reviewing manga and light novel statuses. As we said before, anime is mostly manga adaptations, and the main source materials of anime are manga. “Is there enough material available to create a new season?” or “Is the manga of the anime series still ongoing?” Questions like these are at the center of our research.

Then we evaluate the statements of producers and broadcasters, rumors and leaks, the series’ popularity, search volumes, social media activities, BluRay, and DVD sales. In this way, even if there is no official announcement yet, we give you the possibility of a new season and a possible release date of the anime in the most accurate way.
