With the spring 2018 season coming to a midway point, anime fans are already setting their sights forward into the next season of anime goodness. With time off of school and work for many, the summer 2018 anime season is all too desired and there a ton of shows to be pumped for. Today, we here at Honey’s Anime plan on looking at some of the action anime series that will begin—or return—this summer 2018 season. Welcome to our 3 Highly Anticipated Action Anime for Summer 2018! The beach and vacation are nice and all, but we don’t need them, folks! What we personally need are some shows to get hyped for and these three anime series are shows you don’t want to miss!
1. Shingeki no Kyojin Season 3 (Attack on Titan Season 3)
- Episodes: N/A
- Aired: Jul, 2018- N/A
Eren Yeager, Mikasa Ackerman and Levi are names many of us anime fans know all too well. That’s because these are three of some of the better-known characters from illustrious Shingeki no Kyojin series which returns with a third season in July 2018! Rumor has it that Shingeki no Kyojin Season 3 will take a lot of the issues found in the magna arc it’s adapting and will be changing up some elements to create a better story and narrative. However, what we care most about is the fact that we once more get to see Wit Studios bring to life one of our favorite series and once more deliver tons of Titan killing glory before our eyes. Shingeki no Kyojin Season 3 is easily one of the bigger action anime we’re hyped for here at Honey’s Anime and we don’t think we’re alone. If you haven’t caught up with Shingeki no Kyojin already, you still have several months to do so, folks!

2. Banana Fish
- Episodes: N/A
- Aired: Jul, 2018
Back in 1985—yes that long ago—Yoshida Akimi created an action drama known as Banana Fish. The strangely named series follows a young man named Ash Lynx who becomes a ruthless killer due to the environment he is raised in. Banana Fish hits all those classic action themes found in stories about sex, drugs and violence to create one heck of a manga series that lasted for 19 volumes. That’s why we are excited to see Banana Fish finally get an anime adaption nearly three decades later. Created by studio MAPPA, Banana Fish looks already incredible from the few trailers we’ve seen making our wait for it to release in the summer 2018 anime season that much harder. We highly recommend marking your calendars for July 2018 everyone!
3. FLCL Progressive
- Episodes: 6
- Aired: Jun, 2018- N/A
If you consider yourself a huge Production I.G and Gainax fan then you’ve most likely seen FLCL. You could open up an anime dictionary—if one existed—and look up the word crazy to see yourself then directed to FLCL. Even though FLCL was all over the place with its 6-episode run, we loved it and always wanted a sequel of some sort to have our favorite alien girl armed with a guitar back in our lives. Our prayers have been answered luckily in the form of FLCL Progressive which will be one—of two—anime sequels being released for FLCL! What’s even better is we won’t have to wait 18 years as FLCL Progressive releases this June 2018! Yes, we are very thrilled to see FLCL Progressive come out soon and FLCL fans out there are nodding their heads in unanimous agreement.
