Anime Summer 2024 Guide: What We've Seen, Liked, and Loved

(*UPDATED 7/23/24*). Summer 2024 began Thursday, June 20, which also marked the launch of Anime Summer 2024, and a subsequent onslaught of shows.

In the U.S., where I reside, I have subscriptions to Crunchyroll, which simulcasts many shows that debut on Japanese television networks weekly (29 are due this summer), as well as Netflix, which produces a number of its own shows and tends to drop entire seasons at once. By no means am I an expert on anime, but I am an enthusiast.

What I bring here are short reviews of the first season of shows that I am sampling; I'll leave the second seasons alone for now. A few shows will be added to my watchlist, but after 20 years of sampling, and sometimes devotedly watching, anime series, I know what I like. My personal taste means I will readily watch seinen and shonen rather than shojo, josei or kodomomuke. (Visit Beebom for a very good explanation of anime genres.)

Feel free to bookmark this article, which will be updated as shows are sampled and reviews are published. As of Tuesday, July 23, I've sampled and/or reviewed 19 shows, with plans to sample the remaining shows over the next week.

Here's what I've seen and liked enough to review. Shows marked "not for me" are just that, reflecting my personal opinion.
