A Singaporean Guide to Legal Anime: Spring 2018

Last Updated: 10 April 2018, 3:00am

3 months sure do fly by fast don’t they? Winter 2018 anime is already over and the engine for Spring 2018 is already up and running! Well, this post will more or less be the same as my previous guide post on legal anime in Singapore! This time of course, the list will be focusing on Spring 2018! (I will also include leftovers from Winter 2018). Out of the 81 anime TV series in spring (including shorts), we will be getting 13 of them! SWEET.

IMPORTANT NOTE: I WILL include titles from Amazon Prime Video but do take note that they are having licensing issues (or so they say) whereby despite having the title in their library, some episodes are available while other certain episodes are not.
