Anime is a popular Japanese styled animation with a profit of $19 billion USD. It has gained an increasing amount of popularity over the years.

Many fans have formed fan clubs or “cults” of their favorite series, eagerly waiting for new releases or additions to said series.

As someone who watches anime myself, I have also been one to eagerly wait for a series I enjoyed watching, one of them recently being the final season of Seven Deadly Sins (although the fan’s reactions to it may be controversial).

Along with Seven Deadly Sins, there are a multitude of anime releases that are coming out in 2022.

1.The Devil is a part timer

Description: “Inches away from conquering the world, the devil is foiled by a hero and finds himself in modern-day Tokyo. With no real-world skills to speak of, the devil is forced to make ends meet flipping burgers at a fast food joint!”. Originally released on April 4th, 2013 “The Devil is a Part-timer” is making its return after fans have been demanding it for 9 years. After a long hiatus, the anime will finally return for a season 2 in July of this year. I personally am excited to see what this season has to offer.

2.Attack on Titans Season 4 Part 2

After 9 years, Attack on Titans is finally closing its chapter. The first half of season 4 was released in December of 2020 with episodes dropping until March 2021. The season consisted of 16 episodes before taking a pause until recently this past month. On January 10th, the first episode of the second half was released. As of right now, the rest of the episodes are still streaming. As Attack on Titans comes to an end, so does everything it has built and influenced. Though it has ended, this beautiful piece of work will continue to influence future anime.

3.Bleach Thousand Year blood war arc

Bleach finished off in 2016 with a 16 season run. Although the series had come to an end, fans had felt the ending was not true to the Manga. The Thousand Year Blood War arc was the final story arc of the manga but was never able to be greenlit. This gave an unsatisfying ending to fans all around. After 8 years, the anime is back with its closing story to end the series. The Thousand Year War arc is set to release in October of this year. Though the adaptation is highly debated among fans for being good or horrible, fans of this popular shonen are finally getting what they wanted after 8 years.

4.My Hero Academia Season 6

Description: “A superhero-loving boy without any powers is determined to enroll in a prestigious hero academy and learn what it really means to be a hero”. The ever so popular anime, My hero Academia is releasing its 6th season this year. Originally released on April 3rd of 2016, the beloved series has collected a pretty big fanbase. The series follows Izuku, a lovable and hardworking shonen protagonist. The series has managed to recieve a rating of 100% on rotten tomatoes. Season 6 is set to release in October of this year.

As many fans including me are excited to see these extraordinary anime released, we'll be a bit sad to see some of these series go.

Anime has been and will still be one of the many things that make me excited to look forward to in the future. I personally am someone who has always appreciated animation and this style of art. I will continue to appreciate these releases no matter the outcome because that is what I think fan bases are really about.With some continuations or spin offs airing, they will never replace these unique stories that have shaped so many lives. What do you think?
