November is almost at our doors and that means turkeys, crazy discounts, and above all, it means new anime. While many anime studios have released their fall shows last October, some studios have left us a few treats to enjoy during the 11th month of the year. From, teenage romance to sexy vampires, here are five anime shows you need to watch this November.
