koroshi aife 37 most anticipated new anime of 2022

wrote and drew the Japanese comic series Koroshi Ai. Since 2015, it has been published in Media Factory’s shojo magazine Monthly Comic Gene and compiled in eleven tankobon volumes. Yen Press has the North American rights to the manga. Platinum Vision’s anime television series adaption will premiere in 2022.

Chateau Dankworth, the silent and stoic fortress, is a bounty hunter. Son Ryang-ha, a legendary assassin infamous for assassinating 18 high-ranking officials in one night, is her target. His murders are still quick, effective, and bloody to this day. Son Ryang-ha, on the other hand, exposes his own goals after overpowering Chateau in their first encounter: he, too, is chasing her, aiming for her heart.

Son Ryang-attempts ha’s to capture her attention are, to say the least, unusual. He presents her with gifts in the shape of her current targets, bound and beaten, and would do anything to spend much more time with her. Chateau reluctantly agrees to this act, so the cat-and-mouse relationship between the two killers starts.

Cyberpunk Edgerunners

cyberpunk edgerunners 37 most anticipated new anime of 2022

Despite the fact that the game started in a catastrophic state, Cyberpunk 2077 is seeking to develop its franchise outside gaming. Netflix and CD Projekt Red are collaborating on an anime called Cyberpunk Edgerunners, which will be animated by Studio Trigger.

The story will not be an adaptation of the game’s plotline but will instead follow a single-season limited series anime format with 10 episodes as well as an original, independent plot and characters. It’s a reasonable choice, given that the setting of this franchise encourages the telling of many stories from various points of view. Trigger’s involvement with this adaptation is a significant plus, especially because its director and assistant director, Hiroyuki Imaishi and Masahiko Otsuka, have handled huge anime like Kill la Kill, Promare, and contemporary classic Gurren Lagann.

And there it is, anime fans! 37 new anime to watch out for in the new year. We avoided including scheduled release dates for fear of the wrath of otakus in the event that the release gets delayed.

I've watched a lot of anime in my days, but that doesn't stop me from watching more. Whether it be new or old, I'll give it a run-through and tell you what I think about it. We're currently living in the golden age of anime with so many great shows out there to watch.

Some are better than others for sure, but they're all worth checking out at least once. My beautiful daughters also love watching animes...well not as much as their dad does!
