Summer 2022 Anime Blog Banner

Yes, I admit that my Summer 2022 anime list is way shorter when you compare it to my list for the last season.

As much as I enjoy watching anime, I’m okay with that, though, considering that I have a hard time catching up with all the anime on the list last time.

I guess that I’m better off with a shorter list. It’s more manageable that way.

While I admit that the Summer 2022 anime lineup isn’t as good as the last season, I will say that there are quite a few of them that I find interesting to watch.

What’s more, some of them are the anime that I tend to stay away from, for the most part.

Idol and isekai anime come to mind when it comes to anime that I won’t touch even with a ten-foot pole.

But for some reason, I enjoy watching them and looking forward to them every week.

Does it mean I have a change of heart when it comes to anime like these?

Well, I will say no. They’re still not the kind of anime that I would watch in a heartbeat. But I’m willing to give it a try if it has an interesting premise, though.

As always, the Summer 2022 anime that you’ll see in this blog post is only the tip of the iceberg. Take a look at this list right here for a full lineup of Summer 2022 anime.

For now, let’s take a look at what Summer 2022 anime I’m currently watching.

Hataraku Maou-sama S2

Hataraku Maou-sama S2

To be honest, I can’t remember how the first season of the anime ended since the first season of the anime was more than ten years ago.

Yes, that’s not a typo. It’s been a long time since the first season came out. So, it makes total sense that I can’t even remember how the story in the first season ended.

Despite I can’t even remember a darn thing about the story in the first season, I do find the anime still enjoyable to watch.

Will I consider giving the light novel a try?

Well, I will say yes. But I may not add the book to my list right now considering how swarmed I am with so many new books to read.

This is the sort of anime that you need to watch from the beginning if you want a better context of the story.

But if you don’t feel like catching up with the story through anime, you can get the light novel version right here on Amazon:

Isekai Yakkyoku

Isekai Yakkyoku

Not going to lie that this anime somehow gives me the Ascendance of a Bookworm vibe where the main character’s reincarnation in another world is bringing changes to that said world.

But this time around, the theme is about bringing the medicines reserved for the aristocrats to the general masses instead. And I should mention that Farma was born into an aristocratic family.

So, he has less of a hurdle to achieve his goal compared to Myne who wasn’t born into an upper-class family.

As you can expect, this kind of anime tends to revolve around using magic to create the ingredients needed for the medicine. But it’s still interesting to see that you need to know the construct of the ingredients before you can create one.

And that means you’re going to see so many chemical equations along the way. If that reminds you of the chemistry class back in high school, then it really is.

It’s too bad that the light novel isn’t licensed for English yet. But I won’t be surprised that we will get one anytime soon.

Kami Kuzu Idol

Kami Kuzu Idol

For some reason, this anime somehow reminded me of Ginban Kaleidoscope with the exception that the ghost and the living characters are idols.

And not to mention, the ghost idol, Mogami Asahi can possess Yuuya Niyodo at any time she wants compared to Pete who resides in Tazusa’s body for 100 days.

While idol anime isn’t my thing, I do find the anime to be hilarious. I was laughing so hard every time I watch this anime.

I can’t say for sure if the manga will give you the same effect as the anime. But I bet that you’ll be laughing just as much when you read the manga as well.

If you’re wondering how good the manga is compared to the anime, you can buy the manga right here on Amazon:

Kumichou Musume to Sewagakari

Kumichou Musume to Sewagakari

I have to say that this anime somehow reminded me of Aishiteruze Baby with the exception that Kirishima is a yakuza and he has to look after his boss’ daughter.

This is also another anime that I will laugh so hard every time I watch. So, if you’re looking for something funny to watch, then you should add this to your watch list.

I already have the manga by the time the anime comes out. It’s just that I don’t have the chance to read the manga yet.

So, I can’t say how the anime fares. But if you’re curious about the manga, you can get the manga right here on Amazon:

Overlord IV

Overlord IV

Just like Hataraku Maou-sama, this is also another anime that I forgot how the last season ended.

Despite my forgetfulness, I still add this anime to my watch list because well, I do find the anime to be interesting.

This is another anime that I do encourage you to watch from the beginning. But if you don’t feel like watching the anime from the beginning, you can read the light novel instead to catch up with the story.

You can buy the light novel right here on Amazon:

Which Summer 2022 anime are you currently watching or planning to watch?

As always, feel free to share which Summer 2022 anime you’re watching or planning to watch in the comment below. I’d like to know which anime you’re watching so then I can add them to my list later on.

P.S I’m sure that you already noticed by now that most of the anime that comes out for this season tends to be on the lighter side.

Maybe it has something to do with summer so it’s best to watch something light as opposed to watching something heavy.

If you crave a story that has a serious plot and you enjoy reading a light novel, you can give any of my books a try.
