    Here are our picks for anime movies and series of films and animated series to spend your long weekend with:

    1. Hello World

    Released in 2019, the movie tells the story of a high school student who received a visit from an older version of himself—time traveling from the future, on a mission to save the life of his girlfriend. 

    1. The Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime (Season 2)

    "Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken" or TenSura, is a series about a corporate worker who, as the title said, reincarnated into a goop slime with extraordinary powers. The second season continues to show him on the journey he embarks in a world full of monsters.

    1. One Punch Man

    This television series is an adaptation of a popular web manga of the same name. The superhero story is that of Saitama, who can defeat his opponent with a single punch, hence the title.

    1. Attack on Titan

    Another popular series, "Attack on Titan", is coming for the fourth season. The story still revolves around its titular character Eren Jaeger, a man who can turn into a Titan, a species that eats humans.    

    1. McDull: Rise of the Rice Cooker

    Unlike the other items on this list, McDull: Rise of the Rice Cooker is not a Japanese animation work. It is a 2016 Chinese-Hong Kong animated comedy film about an inventor, Mcdull, who invented a rice cooker robot that can defeat monsters.
