At long last, the weekend is finally here, which means it's time for you and your fellow anime-loving friends to sit back, relax, and watch brand-new anime episodes of the titles you know and love!

We know anime like Demon Slayer: Hashira Training Arc and Kaiju No. 8 are all the rave right now, especially with both anime having so many action-packed scenes and epic battles that make our heads spin. Even so, we don't see anything wrong with introducing anime fans to titles they may have heard next to nothing about. That's why we want to fill you in on some amazing anime that you should definitely watch as soon as possible. Without further ado, here are 7 anime that you should stream this weekend!

What anime to watch this weekend

First up is none other than Vampire Dormitory, a steamy anime that is sure to make your heart flutter.

The 2024 anime tells the story of a young girl named Mito. Mito hasn't been too lucky as of late ever since she lost her parents and her job. But her luck is suddenly turned around for the better when Mito comes across a vampire who is more than what meets the eye. Adventure and a life full of non-stop entertainment await!

See the full synopsis (via Crunchyroll) below:

"After Mito loses her parents and is fired from her job, she must fend for herself on the streets disguised as a boy. She comes across a stranger named Ruka and learns his dark secret—he’s a vampire! Ruka invites Mito, still in disguise, to live in an all-boys dorm. Mito exchanges her blood for a place to stay, but a budding romance and her true identity threaten all that hangs in the balance."
