The summer season has already started and so does another wave of new anime rush into the new season. While June has been an interesting month that is slowly coming to an end, July starts off with some new freshly cooked adaptations and continuation of anime.
From Isekai to Detectives, July is the month of mystery and variations!
Are you ready to know what this month is holding for you?
Here are the top 13 anime that start airing in July!
July starts with the crying of cicadas and so does our first title that opens the path for July and can be translated as When the cicadas cry: Graduation.
It’s Sequel of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Gou and well known fourth season of the Higurashi no Naku Koro ni franchise.
While the previous seasons have already bestowed us with many answers to the mysteries of killing and the many tries to recover a perfect world in which the characters can live in.
This season and especially the first arc act as an answer arc to the Onidamashi-hen and revolves around Satoko Hojo’s attempt to stop Rika Furude from leaving Hinamizawa.
Currently stated there will be 15 Episodes in this season.
What will await us in the continuation that will reveal yet many cruel truths?
As we covered the first season in our breakfast anime and already announced the second season’s arrival, Otome Hametsu also finally is airing it’s continuation.
While our Protagonist Catarina Claes may have successfully avoided all her Doom Flags up until now and even after avoiding her bad endings, reaching farther than the actual storyline in the game what will await her when she doesn’t know which doom flags should be avoided next – without a plan at all like in her previous path up until now?
With a close circle of friends and excited for the upcoming school festival as her first year in school comes to an end, will Catarina finally be able to live a comfortable life?
As the anime will start with the first incident of Catarina’s kidnapping, it seems like the supposed doom flags are not to be avoided that easily!
The Case Study of Vanitas takes place in the nineteenth century in french, an ambience resembling almost one of a certain phantom thief anime.

But as he is on his way on an airship to Paris, a certain black-haired man crashes into it holding that very book he was looking for in his hands.
The eccentric man who introduces himself as Vanitas, one who was given the same name as the book he was holding and also supposedly inherited it from the vampire of the blue moon.

How will the journey of the eccentric human and young vampire who won’t attack them play out?
And what will await, extinction or salvation?
Now in most Isekai anime in which the protagonist suddenly wakes up in a new world Kazuya Souma also happens to be transported into another world, but unlike other characters his image of heroic behavior doesn’t match into that category.

Only a maid dressed in black is the only companion he has in the depths of loneliness of the big mansion, Alice the one existence that causes him worry more than anything else.

Back to how things should have originally been, Kimizuka tries his best to adapt back, but simply cannot forget the four years of events that he had lived alongside the detective.
All of that seems like a story that came to an end- which is far from true since the now back to Highschool boy meets a girl who looks extremely like his former boss.
A story that was supposed to end, is just about to start…
When we enter the world of adulthood and society starts to see us in a different light after graduation, there are always many faces one holds.
