1. Steins;Gate 0

  • Episodes: 23
  • Aired: April 2018- Present

If there is a series we absolutely love here at Honey’s Anime HQ it would have to be Steins;Gate. It’s a series that keeps audiences enthralled from episode 1 to 24 and the same can be said of the pseudo sequel, Steins;Gate 0. Telling the story of Okabe Rintaro from the perspective that he saved Mayuri but let the other die, makes for a new look at our former mad scientist now turned serious and melancholy. Currently, Steins;Gate 0 is keeping our emotions and minds in a vice grip and we can’t love it more. What will happen next as Okabe deals with this new world line and meets new friends…and new enemies? We might know the answers—as some of us played the original visual novel—but that doesn’t stop us from wondering if things will be different each episode. Fans of Steins;Gate need to watch Steins;Gate 0 and trust us, folks, you won’t regret doing so.

2. Dorei-ku The Animation

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: April 2018- June 2018

Slavery, or even the idea of it, is a pretty taboo theme in any form of media. Understandable given the nature of slavery in various forms throughout history. Yet, Dorei-Ku The Animation makes this taboo theme interesting by making a mind game out of just that, games. The prize for the winner is control—or slavery—of the one who loses and that makes this series quite intriguing to watch. With some complex narrative, characters and twisted games, Dorei-ku The Animation is a wickedly good series so far and we hope it continues to be this way till its inevitable conclusion sometime in the future. In many ways, Dorei-ku The Animation plays games with us too as viewers. We never know what to expect next making Dorei-ku The Animation a greet psychological series from the spring 2018 anime season.

3. Tokyo Ghoul:re

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: April 2018- June 2018

Continuing off the popular manga series, Tokyo Ghoul:re tells a new story with what seems like a “new” protagonist named Haise Sasaki. True Tokyo Ghoul fans know though that what seems normal in the series usually is a front for hidden twists and turns in narrative just waiting to happen. Tokyo Ghoul:re just finished this season and we are dying for more of this wonderful series. Now let’s hope the creators of Tokyo Ghoul:re don’t mess with our minds further and make us wait too long for more episodes. That would be the ultimate psychological attack on us Tokyo Ghoul fans.

Final Thoughts

The beauty of psychological anime is that when a series does the genre right, it enters a place in your mind and doesn’t leave. When there are times you think you know what will happen, the series does something so against your thoughts that you are left utterly shocked and awed. That is what many of the shows above do for us while watching and that’s why they are all worthy of being checked out by fans of the psychological genre.
