What makes October 2022 such a crazy year for anime is that so many long-awaited sequels and manga adaptations are finally getting their anime debuts. In particular, the ten anime listed below have been hyped for so long that it’s hard to believe they’re even airing!

From slice-of-life rom-coms to action-packed shonen rides, there’s an anime for everyone this season. Let’s look at this.

Since the tragic death of Kentaro Miura, Berserk fans had to come to terms with the fact that the show will never be the same again. But, instead of being sad about what could have been, it’s never too late to relive the absolute brilliance of Berserk’s story all over again.

The Golden Age Arc Memorial Edition celebrates the work of Miura, allowing newcomers and old school fans alike to come together and relive this truly incredible story. So if you have any doubts about whether or not you should check out Berserk, let this new series prove your doubts wrong.

9. Sword Art Online Progressive: Scherzo of Dark Twilight

After the success of Sword Art Online Progressive feature film, this sequel is expected to make waves in the anime community. Notably, Sword Art Online has long been rejected by viewers. While those who praise the first season (specifically, the first ten or so episodes), the series has seen a steep decline from the second series onwards.

Sword Art Online Progressive takes things back to basics, returning to the first VR game and further exploring the world of Aincrad and Kirito and Asuna’s relationship. In this regard, the show delivers what everyone has been asking for. The result is a much more realistic and detail-oriented experience that everyone can enjoy.

8. Urusei Yatsura

Originally published in 1981, Urusei Yatsura was a smash hit in the world of old school anime. Now, over forty years later, the show is back with a fresh coat of paint and here to remind everyone why it was so popular in the first place.

The story tells of a young alien who comes to Earth to find herself in the company of a young man she believes to be her husband. As you can imagine, things only get more chaotic from there, and plenty of awkward laughs and misunderstandings are yet to come.

It’s always important to look back at older works and see how the medium has progressed over the years (and how it’s also stayed the same). Urusei Yatsura is shaping up to be a very enjoyable blast from the past.

7. Knights

If that wasn’t enough, Genshin Impact would get an anime adaptation; now knights will also receive a fully animated series. The popular gacha tower defense game took the world by storm upon its initial release. The title is still going strong to this day, and this anime is proof enough that any signs of fatigue are unfounded.

Arknights is one of the most popular anime-style gacha games out there. Not only is the gameplay engaging and addictive, but the story is also incredibly well written. Anyone interested in learning more about the anime before its release can pick up the game today and start playing!

6. Mob Psycho 100 III

Crowd Psycho amazed anime fans when it was first released, thanks in part to its clever writing, quirky humor, and, above all, beautiful animation. The show focuses on Mob, a young boy with psychic powers unmatched in the supernatural world.

Mob does his best to keep his powers a secret while exterminating the evil spirits that seek to torment those around him. Now well into its lifespan, Mob Psycho continues to push the boundaries of what makes good anime with each new season. Hopefully Season 3 will be no exception.

5. Uzaki-chan wants out! Double

Uzaki is one of the most popular manga characters that managed to snag a coveted anime adaptation. Long-running volumes like Uzaki, Nagatoro, Takagi, and Komi have all been greenlit for multiple anime seasons, and fans couldn’t be happier.

The first season of Uzaki-chan wants out served as a teaser. It had the difficult task of not only setting up its premise and main cast, but also moving the overall story forward. Now that we’re back with Season 2, we hope to see more romance between Uzaki and Sakurai. Only time will tell what awaits these lovebirds.

4. Spy x Family Part 2

Spy Family became a massive hit on its first release as fans around the world fell in love with the mismatched family of Lloyd, Yor and Anya. Yor and Lloyd are perfect foils for each other, and Anya’s chaotic energy makes every scene featuring her absolutely hilarious.

This upcoming series is the second half of the story, delving deeper into the lives of the main trio. Yor and Lloyd will likely depend on their relationship even more, while Anya will continue to try to keep her psychic abilities a secret. When it comes to hilarious relationships mixed with exciting and tense action scenes, you can’t do better than Spy Family.

3. Chainsaw Man

As for new anime, as opposed to sequels, Chainsaw Man is probably the most anticipated show of all. Without diving too deep into spoilers, Chainsaw Man is the story of a young boy working alongside a chainsaw demon in hopes of eradicating his father’s debt.

The show is mature and touches on many themes including depression, lust, anger, and jealousy. The animation quality of this show is superb, and it is clear that no expense has been spared when it comes to the show’s budget. The show isn’t for everyone, and those with softer sensibilities might want to miss it. However, if you can handle a little debauchery once in a while, give it a try.

2. My Hero Academia 6

my hero academia took the world by storm, ushering in a new era of Shonen anime that could rival the creators of the genre like Dragon Ball, Naruto, and One Piece. Now in its sixth season, it’s easy to see just how much staying power this series has overall.

In a world where Super Heroes and Villains are engaged in a constant battle of good versus evil, it’s up to new and upcoming heroes to keep fighting for what’s right. The new arc will kick off the fight between the heroes and the League of Villains.

My Hero Academia revitalized the Shonen genre alongside other great shows like Hunter x Hunter 2011. We have it to thank for keeping such thrill rides on our screens. It is sure to have exciting times for all.

1. Bleach – Bloody Thousand Year War

After Bleach was canceled in 2012, many die-hard fans were disappointed that the show never received a proper conclusion. Now, over a decade later, Bleach is getting an anime adaptation of its final manga arc.

Several trailers have already been released showcasing the updated visuals. But, we have to say, the difference in quality between where the show ended and where it is now is really weird. Most of the original voice actors are returning to reprise their roles, and fans couldn’t be happier.

As one of the original “big three” anime alongside Naruto and One Piece, Bleach finally gets the climax it deserves. So if you only have time to watch one anime, make sure it’s Bleach to witness a historic point in anime history.

And that’s our top 10 anime coming in October 2022.
