Like last time, please note that this list was not created by me. Rather, it was created by all the anime fans around the world on MAL. So if you think any anime doesn’t deserve to be here, keep in mind that this isn’t part of the MyAnimeList membership for every upcoming series. With that, let’s move on to this list, as usual, the list is sorted from lowest to highest. Hopefully at least one of these titles, you’re interested enough to see it!

Let’s join OtakuGO to the following list of Top 10 Anime released in the spring of 2022.


Top 10 Anime released in the spring of 2022

Released: April 12, 2022

First, we have the lowest ranking anime in the top 10, the third season of Ascendance of a Bookworm. Adapted from the light novel of the same name, Ascendance of a Bookworm is an isekai anime, not the typical reincarnation anime but instead something much more interesting. The anime is animated by the lesser-known Aija-Do studio. Best known for its hit 2012 Magic Tree House series, the studio has been animating Ascendance of a Bookworm since its first season. It is currently unknown how many episodes will be in this upcoming season, but guessing from previous seasons, the number of episodes could range from 12-to 14 episodes.

Urano Motosu loves all kinds of books, reading any and all literary works. She was about to land her dream job of becoming a librarian when she had an accident and passed away. As she took her last breath, she wished she could read more books in her life. Fate apparently listened to her and granted her the exact wish when Urano Motosu was reincarnated into a new world. Now she has her life as Myne, a fragile five-year-old girl living in the middle ages. Now with a whole new life where she can read books, Myne begins her new journey when she discovers that books in this world are extremely scarce and the few she finds are very expensive. But this doesn’t stop Myne from being addicted to books, if there are no books around she will just make a few on her own!

And one of the top 10 Anime released in the spring of 2022 That’s right, the first episode of Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove It season 2 is out and available to stream now! Adapted from the manga of the same name, this romantic comedy just keeps getting better! Animated by Zero-G, the studio behind the hit comedy series Grand Blue, Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove It is sure to be an interesting movie. Like the other entries on this list, it’s unknown how many episodes will be in this second season. However, minus the number of episodes from last season, I would guess that there will be about 12 episodes.

It is believed that there is a scientific explanation for every phenomenon in our universe. However, there are many aspects that science has yet to decipher. One of these is love! It may seem impossible to apply science to such complex but fundamental human emotions, but this team of enterprising university scientists gives it a try!

A Couple of Cuckoos is one of the Top 10 Anime released in the spring of 2022 and next on this list and it’s true that the title of the series fits the series very well. Adapted from the manga of the same name, this romcom entails constant surprises. If you don’t believe me just watch the first chapter of the manga or wait until the first volume comes out! Animated by Shin-Ei Animation, this series is sure to have great and consistent animations throughout the entire show. How much time is left… We don’t know at the moment. However, if I had to guess, I would say that this series will have a seasonal average total of 12. We’ll have to wait and see if I’m correct!

Just like our previous entry on this list, this upcoming anime series has actually started airing. One volume of the Aharen-san wa Hakarenai series released the first volume yesterday afternoon. And it’s no surprise that fans absolutely love it, (come on, just look at her face). Adapted from the popular manga of the same name, Aharen-san wa Hakarenai is currently being animated by the relatively new Felix studio, mostly known for their work on Nekopara. Like most of the anime on this list, it is currently unknown how many episodes are in the first season of Aharen-san wa Hakarenai.

Reina Aharen is a petite and cute student with a quiet voice. She’s also pretty bad at determining other people’s personal space. The only person who can really understand her is Raidou Matsuboshi, who sits behind her in class. Raidou has a menacing face but in reality, he’s just a nice boy with a sometimes wild imagination. The movie is about how their very odd friendship begins, where their friendship first began. When Raidou picked up Reina’s eraser… Follow this quirky friendship with new episodes that air every Sunday! twitter.

The famous Date A Live is back! And this time the 4th season! Scheduled for release on April 8, fans around the globe are eagerly awaiting the sequel to the Date A Live series. This time period is set up for animation by the relatively obscure Studio GEEK TOYS. As usual, we don’t have any information on how many episodes this season will have, but with previous seasons, I believe it’s safe to assume 10-12 episodes.

Date A Live follows a guy named Itsuka Shido who meets a soul girl who has been rejected by a ravaged world. The girl that Shidou named Tohka, happened to have wiped out most of humanity 30 years ago, and now she has returned. The only way to stop her is to date her.

Animated by the giant of life himself, studio Doga Kobo, this anime is sure to quickly gain a lot of fans. I know I’ll be watching, will you?
