With the spring season coming to an end, the summer anime 2018 season has begun. Lots of highly anticipated shows are returning along with some new shows worth checking out. We took a look at shows starting this summer on Crunchyroll and Funimation and picked out our favorite returning shows and the most interesting new shows. Shows marked Crunchyroll will be subbed, shows with Funimation will be dubbed.
Cells at Work! – July 8th (Crunchyroll)
Nothing like a fun comedic anime to get your summer started. In Cells at Work!: History tells of the anthropomorphic cells of blood that live in the human body. Together, they fight against pathogenic microorganisms and bacteria that enter them, for example, through the nose, mouth or open wounds. The series follows a lead character who is a red blood cell themselves. Check out the preview below. As silly as it seems, it still looks like good fun.
Angels Of Death (July 2018, Crunchyroll, Funimation)
13-year old Rachel awakens to find herself trapped in the basement of an abandoned building. Without any memories, or even a clue as to where she could be, she wanders the building, lost and dizzy. In her search, she comes across a man covered in bandages. He introduces himself as Zack and he wields a grim-reaper like sickle. A strange bond is struck between them, strengthened by strange, crazy promises…
These two, trapped in this strange building, don’t know why fate has placed them there. But they will work together desperately to find a way out…
