Every anime fan has at least one anime that they consider underrated. But if you’ve ever gone deep into the cracks and crevices of the anime community to see what others consider “underrated,” you may have heard the chants of everyone screaming, “Dazai, Dazai, Dazai!!”.

At some point, you must have wondered who is “Dazai.” Why is he pulling so many girls? Well, to answer only one of those questions, Dazai is from the series called Bungou Stray Dogs.

Bungou Stray Dogs Season 4 will most likely pick up from where season 3 left off and begin by adapting the Cannibalism Aftermath Arc.

Slice of anime is most often heart-warming, especially when it’s coupled with comedy and romance. Don’t toy with me miss nagatoro is just one of the many animes which fall under this genre.

Don’t Toy with me miss Nagatoro season 2 will pick up where the first season ended. Nagatoro and Senpai s’ romantic angel will be the main theme as the show transcends away from bullying.

Senpai has come a long way since episode 1, where he was seen crying when teased by Nagatoro. He breaks moulds and comes out of his shell with the help of her bully, who ultimately becomes her love interest.

Don’t Toy with me miss Nagatoro season 2 will dive into the change in Nagatoro s’ arc as well as we see her as a bully first and being concerned about no one but herself. As the episodes roll on, Nagatoro helps Senpai become more confident and comes away from her bullying nature.

Don’t Toy with me, miss Nagatoro season 2 will have new characters as well, which will spice up the show even more. Nagatoro kissing Senpai on the cheeks in the final scene indicates the impending real kiss as well.

Don’t Toy with me miss Nagatoro anime is rated 7.3/10 and ranked #2113 with 647k members on MyAnimeList.

The fantasy of creating characters, upgrading weapons, and interacting with friends is more fun in reality rather than behind a keyboard. 

Thanks to technology, these fantasies are possible with concepts like VRMMORPG, which incidentally forms the premise behind Bofuri: I Don’t Want to Get Hurt, so I’ll Max Out My Defense.

After an interesting and intriguing first season, Bofuri Season 2 has been much awaited in the fandom.

Bofuri season 2 should give new forms to the likes of Sally and Kasume, who are equally strong characters. This would eventually mean Maple guild will be a force to reckon with after they acquire the new abilities. 

Although the Bofuri characters are in a virtual reality, it will be interesting to see how they are in real life. How much character alteration is there from the online game to the real world is what fans would definitely like to know.

Finally, Bofuri Season one had Maple undefeated, as the overall tone of the show felt inconsequential. We expect Bofuri Season 2 to increase the stakes, such as losing could result in a time-out at the base. 

Maple s’ defeat is also expected, as an overpowered MC can make the show repetitive. This is very important in character development and maintaining interest throughout the season. 

Bofuri anime is rated 7.5/10 and ranked #1471 with 418k members on MyAnimeList.

Most people often worship one God or the other, and few do it in fear, while some believe. But what if the worshiper turns a warrior and fights against these supreme beings Well, Netflix s’ Record of Ragnarok brings this unique concept to our screens.

After the cliffhanger ending of season one, fans have been waiting patiently for Record of Ragnarok Season 2.

Record of Ragnarok season 2 will start where the first season ended. The fourth battle of the Ragnarok will be between Jack the Ripper and Hercules.

The second season will also feature Shiva, the Hindu God of Destruction, who will fight the 17th-century sumo wrestler Raiden Tameemon. This will be the fifth round of the Ragnarok.

Finally, the sixth round will pit the founder of Buddhism, Buddha, against the God of Misfortune, Zerofuku.

There was wide-found criticism for the fights in Record of Ragnarok season one. The animation behind the action scenes was cited as below par, with the manga having much better illustrations.

Record of Ragnarok season 2 will have three fights, so the expectation is that Graphinica will improve the animation and direction.

Record of Ragnarok is rated 6.6/10 and ranked #5758 with 228k members on MyAnimeList
