Nominated by Madalena Daleziou

When an anime gets multiple seasons, there’s always a danger of it becoming repetitive or not living up to the original hype. As it turns out, I feel totally validated for being excited about Kaguya-sama: Love is War Season 3.

The newest season gave us hilarious moments, awesome art and music, but also character development.

Kaguya-sama Season 3 delivered its promise to be Ultra Romantic in the best possible way while placing subtle hints here and there about new romances and more school adventures!

Spy x Family

Best Anime of Spring 2022 Spy x Family

Nominated by Marla Añonuevo

The Spy x Family series' rise to popularity this season deserves all the hype. Twelve episodes were not enough – it definitely had us craving for more.

Right off the bat, Spy x Family's premiere episode made a great first impression, and it continued to impress us with its comedic timing and wholesome plot.

From Anya's expressions to the duality of Loid and Yor and the elegance of Mr. Henderson, there are tons of favorite characters and moments to choose from. (For me, the dodgeball episode is one of the best!)

Tomodachi Game

Best Anime of Spring 2022 Tomodachi Game

Nominated by Cathlyn Melo

One of the season's most perplexing anime series is Tomodachi Game. It not only makes you doubt a lot of things, but it also forces you to make predictions about how the series will end.

Moreover, the anime does an excellent job of explaining the details necessary for its compelling narrative despite its quick pacing.

Tomodachi Game has one of the most interesting main characters in anime, even if you're not a fan of mystery and survival anime series.

Komi Can't Communicate Season 2

Best Anime Spring 2022 Komi Can't Communicate Season 2

Nominated by Margarita Rances

From a shy girl who thought she would not be able to make any friends, Komi did well and it is all because of Tadano. While it is still unknown whether they will end up with each other, it's amazing how much Komi has grown over the two seasons.

If there will be another season of Komi Can't Communicate, it'll be interesting to see how their friendship will bloom more.

Ao Ashi

Best Anime Spring 2022 Ao Ashi
expand image

Nominated by Will Taylor

As a soccer/football fan, I had pretty much given up on seeing a genuinely good soccer anime until Ao Ashi came along.

More than that, Ao Ashi might become one of the great sports anime. Of course, that will depend on how its second cour does in the summer season, but the signs so far are very positive.

Ao Ashi is a must-watch for sports anime fans, delivering an excellent lead and exciting yet genuine sports action.

Ao Ashi is a love letter to the world's favourite sport while also banking those much-loved sports anime tropes for people who just want to watch ambitious teenagers strive for their dreams.
