This will probably be the last spring 2022 article I do for a long time. I have talked about this season way too much it feels like. Not that I could help it though because there was just so much content to cover. So well, now that the season is over we can talk properly about how good the animes were. And man there were a lot of them to sort through…
So I finally have a definitive list in my mind. There were so many good anime in spring 2022 but, I could only pick 5 for the list so I am bound to miss a few. So please, don’t be like “x anime is not on the list”… it was hard enough to pick 5 out of the 16-17 spring anime I watched. With that said though, let’s start right away.
The World of Otome Games is Tough for Mobs
Starting off, we have this. The World of Otome Games is Tough for Mobs is truly entertaining isekai. I loved the manga and now I love the anime as well. There are very few MCs I like as much as Leon and man, he is such a scumbag in the best way possible. The story, the pacing, and the world-building all come together to make a really good series. I know, a lot of people had issues with the animations, and so did I but the anime is still very good. Definitely one anime from spring 2022 that I will be revisiting a lot.
One of the most surprising animes from spring 2022. I had no idea going in what Yuusha Yamemasu was about. I just thought the title sounded interesting and checked it out. Little did I know that the anime will end up being way more than just a plain simple fantasy-comedy as I first thought. The second half of this anime is so well done and the second ending theme fits it really well. The opening theme, the plot twists, and the fantastic performances from Kensho Ono and Kaede Hondo make this a very memorable anime.
Of course, this is here. All of us spent the entirety of spring 2022 vibing to its opening. And the opening theme is not even the best part of the show! If you like music, this Paripi Koumei has a lot to offer you. The sound design in this anime is just amazing. The songs in the anime and of course the opening and ending themes are what define Paripi Koumei. The setting is very interesting but the plot is what you’d expect. It is a very fun anime to watch and if you happen to like music then you’ll definitely like this.
Kaguya-Sama Season 3
Another very obvious pick. One of the best season finales and I am calling it already one of the best sequels of the year. Kaguya-sama season 3 was so so well done and directed. The plot really picked up and the character development really sky-rocketed in this season. Man, I feel like we will be talking about the season’s conclusion for a long time; this is how you conclude a banger of a season. Kaguya-sama definitely deserves the praise it is getting on MAL.
Spy x Family
Another very obvious pick and definitely one of the best anime from spring 2022 and in the year so far. Spy x Family is a really memorable anime for sure. We have all seen the memes, we know how much the community loves Anya. She is just so relatable and entertaining. The plot and setting of this anime are so so good and the characters are so fun. WIT and CloverWorks really nailed the animations as well. Just a good ol’ fun anime.
Well, those were my picks for the best anime from spring 2022. Let me know what you guys think in the comments and let me know your top 5 as well. With that said though, I will take my leave here. See ya!
