That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2
You might have heard about the Isekai genre of anime and manga. It is a relatively new concept where you die in the real world and get born as a different person with the memories of the old life. That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime has the same concept, but Satoru, instead of being reborn as a human, gets born as a slime.
He is a slime in a fantasy world and beings to grow and develop specific abilities. We join him in this life as slime and watch him grow more powerful and become friends with different species and people. This is an excellent anime to watch and also has a lot of action and adventure in it.

ReZero is the anime that kickstarted the Isekai genre of anime. We follow the story of Subaru Natsuki as he is transferred into a world of Humans and Monsters. This came as a shock to him, and he assumes that he is dreaming. However, he comes to find out that he has a strange power. He moves back in time as soon as he dies. This makes his experience much more daunting as he has to relive his death over and over.
This is the 2nd part of the 2nd season of the anime. Subaru has come a long way as he was in the start. He meets many individuals in his journey and helps a ton of people in his new life. This Fantasy Drama will surely blow your minds out if you like the Isekai Genre or even Normal Fantasy.
Horimiya is the best Ongoing Romantic Anime, PERIOD. The anime beautifully tells the story of two contrasting individuals and their story, Hori and Miyamura. They both are classmates and very different from what they act like in school. Miyamura is very gloomy and sad looking in class but dons a punk appearance with tattoos and piercings outside.
Hori is very social in school but has a very laidback life in her home, taking care of chores and her little brother Sota. Horimiya is rated 8.55 in MAL, which is among the best romantic anime out there. Everything about Horimiya is excellent, and I urge you to watch it.
This is yet another Isekai Anime that is ongoing right now. Jobless Reincarnation tells the story of a 34-year-old NEET born as a baby named Rudeus Greyest. However, he has all the memories of his previous life and vows to lead a fulfilling life.
