In the anime world, new anime can be hit or miss. Regardless of the title or studio a new anime with a large budget can crumble and burn, like anime such as Gundress, or Berserk (the newer version). The spring 2022 anime season is looking a little dismal, with most of its new anime looking generic and unentertaining, however, I do believe some of the new anime coming out will be great.
Spy x Family
Spy x Family follows an interesting man who’s especially good at his job. Based off of the title of the anime, you could probably guess this occupation he was practically made for, is being a spy. This spy who possesses an incomparable intellect for the nature of his job, is emotionally inept, thus making the show intriguing when the man is tasked to make a believable family infiltrate a school in a few weeks. This light-hearted show has shown elements of action, comedy, and entertaining psychology, as well as just being all-around entertaining. Only 3 episodes have been released so far but the show is invigorating, making me wait on the edge of my seat to see the next episodes. I believe this anime will be a big one.
Tomodachi Game is a manga series being adapted into anime, and just like Spy x Family, the manga is very well renowned. Tomodachi Game is a survival anime that has a psychological thriller genre. In this anime, 5 friends are thrown into a game that involves trading and paying back debt. With the topic of debt, the friendships are being held together by a thread, and the point of the game is to ruin their friendships. The anime has shown great elements of intensity, but also some moments were a little odd. Im excited to see what this anime has in store, and I hope it’s not ruined by bad story writing and bad animation.
