A new season of anime is right around the corner! With many series returning this season there’s a bevy of choices for what are the “must watch” shows. For this season, the Too Far Gone must watch picks will focus on two resurrected classics and a show that is newly adapted from a popular manga franchise.
The Legend of the Galactic Heroes: Die Neue These
A franchise whose story has been told for over a decade through broadcasted anime, OVAs and movies, this new adaptation will start fresh for those of us that weren’t around in 1988 to watch it from the beginning. The Legend of the Galactic Heroes: Die Neue These is a space opera set in the distant future where two warring factions, The Galactic Empire and the Free Planet Alliance, vie for control over the galaxy.
Golden Kamuy is a strong pick that should please existing fans and newcomers alike. The plot of the show takes place after the Russo-Japanese War, which ended in 1905, and follows the story of former soldier Saichi Sugimoto. Having stumbled across a treasure map tattooed upon a criminal, Sugimoto must go to Japan’s northern region of Hokkaido to claim a cache of gold.
Cutie Honey Universe
Cutie Honey Universe is the latest adaptation in a long standing lineage from this popular franchise, helping commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of Nagai’s works. Cutie Honey Universe follows Honey Kisaragi, an extremely humanlike android whose ability to transform into numerous stylish disguises gives her access to special powers.
