10 Anime to Look Forward to in 2023
1. Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan) – Final Season Part 3
We thought the show would end in 2022, but now the good one is going for Attack on Titan.
Trilogies are the norm in modern entertainment, so the last season of Attack on Titan was destined to follow this pattern. After the first two parts of the fourth and final season air, the series will end in 2023. It is one of the most complex and violent anime of recent years. Also, this ending is likely to be just as controversial as the manga, since its author, Hajime Isayama, promised to make some changes to the story that most people know.
