Tokyo Ghoul √A (Season 2)

Finally, Kaneki Ken has embraced the flesh-obsessed ghoul brewing within, and is ready to raise some heck. After experiencing some super cringe-worthy torture at the end of season one, we reunite with a Kaneki that has lost his innocence (and his marbles). He joins up with Aogiri Tree, the extremist ghoul-only group, with the intent of spilling some blood. The government is cracking down on Tokyo in an effort to cleanse the streets, causing ghouls and humans alike to choose allegiances and fight for what they believe in. This action-packed season is definitely a leader of the Winter 2015 lineup, and a great follow-up to the original series.


Death Parade

Your true colors will be revealed in this unique and haunting series. In Death Parade, the age-old question has finally been answered, "do Heaven and Hell exist?" The answer, unfortunately, is no. Luckily, there’s a trendy bar past a pair of ominous elevators called "Quindecim" where you can play sadistic games to wager your eternal soul. Decim, an intermediate grim reaper with a love for party games, judges his victims in a well-worn bartenders' uniform. This series portrays an interesting approach to the topic of death that is worth exploring. So sit back, fix yourself a stiff one, and leave your enjoyment to chance with Death Parade.


Ansatsu Kyoushitsu (Assassination Classroom)

If you thought your time in middle school was stressful, try putting yourself in the shoes of Kunugigaoko’s class 3-E. With the sole responsibility of assassinating their teacher, Koro-sensei, these kids are in for one bizarre life lesson. It doesn’t help that Koro-sensei is a practically indestructible alien that can fly at Mach-20, or that he’s actually a really nice guy. But he practically destroyed the Moon, and has hinted towards a similar fate for Earth, so what choice does 3-E have? Take a break from your studies and watch Anatsu Kyoushitsu for some quality comedy and action. Don't worry, this one won't be on the test.


Boku Dake Ga Inai Machi (ERASED)

Fujinuma Satoru is a socially incompetent, wannabe manga artist that has an ability he dubs, “Revival.” This ability allows him to go back in time several minutes before an often horrific or life-altering event occurs, whether it is something that directly affects him or not. When he is accused of a murder he didn’t commit, he is sent further back than ever before, to his childhood in 1988. Through multiple Revivals back to this same crucial time, Satoru must uncover the mystery of the disappearance of his classmate Kayo Hinazuki; with the help of his friends, of course. This anime has plenty of suspense and drama to keep you fired up during those colder months.


Akagami no Shirayukihime 2nd Season (Snow White with the Red Hair 2)

Here is a must-see, because we can all use a little romance in the dead of Winter, right? Akagami no Shirayuki-Hime is back with even more cuteness, (Spoiler Alert), especially since the lovebirds have finally proclaimed their love for each other. Regardless of romance, Shirayuki and Zen still have personal duties from season one to honor, so there are plenty of plot-related advancements to enjoy. For a reminder that Spring is just around the corner, let your love for anime blossom with the happy couple.



Including Ajin in this list is a tough decision to make, because although the story is absolutely thrilling and purely genuine, the animation style is just the worst. Regardless, it’s here, because frankly, the Winter 2015-2016 Winter anime lineup left much to be inspired. Strange immortal beings known only as “Ajin” begin popping up all over the world, and are immediately labeled a universal threat due to their complex nature. A listless student named Kei discovers his identity as such a creature, causing both the audience and the protagonist to question what Ajin really are, as well as what makes a human really “human.”
