In his annual musing on the year past, Zigg talks about 2022 being dominated by high-profile sequels and adaptations, and why that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
2022 is an interesting year for anime. What it lacks in an obvious high profile mega-hit, it makes up for with a lot of surprise hits. I laughed a lot with anime this year, and that’s worth something. Join me as I reminisce about the anime I watched this year, both the good and the bad. I’m not going to lie people, I threw this together at the last minute. I hope it’s coherent?
When I whittled down this year’s list of watched shows down to smaller and smaller numbers, it turned out that almost everything on there was some kind of adaptation or reboot. What’s up with that? Were they any good?
In our final episode of 2022, we make our final predictions for currently airing shows and even fit in a few previews for next season.
