The winter anime season is upon us, and I’m sorry to say it, but it’s looking pretty grim. Like a polar vortex of mediocrity, winter has brought down a flurry of bland mecha, unfunny comedies, and half-hearted light novel adaptations. But all is not lost—in addition to continuing series from fall and the return of Silver Spoon, there are a few new cartoons that look like they can get us through this harsh winter. From the heavily anticipated Space Dandy to surprises like Noragami and the weird Hozuki no Reitetsu, new anime is a click away. Here are some of the best shows of the winter season that are available to watch right now.

Kill la Kill

There’s an autumnal nip in the air and we all know what that means: pumpkin-flavored beverages, decorative gourds, and new cartoons. In contrast to a summer season full of more contemplative projects like Uchouten Kazoku and Silver Spoon, fall is crammed with stylish, action-packed shows, from the schoolyard battleground of Kill la Kill to the terrific madness that is Kyousogiga to impromptu superheroes in Samurai Flamenco. With simulcasts a click away, there’s no reason to wait. Here are some top picks for the fall season that are available to watch right now—let’s just hope some of them can live up to the hype.

Every season Japan turns out a fresh crop of anime TV series. With accessible (and legal) simulcasts becoming increasingly common on sites like Hulu and Crunchyroll, it’s now easier than ever to watch almost any new anime only hours after the Japanese broadcast. So why wait? Here are our five top picks for the summer season.
