Fall 2022 is a historically loaded season of anime, the result of concentrating essentially a year’s worth of top talent in one single burst through bold and sometimes aggressive management. It more than deserves a deep dive into many of these titles and the teams behind them—the accomplished veterans, very promising youngsters, and experimental artists leading their own projects, as well as the production circumstances behind this madness.
The third episode of Hanebado! marks the true beginning of the series – a fascinating clash of conflicting philosophies that also served as the major debut of a very exciting studio that gathered young creators you might be acquainted with. Let’s get messy in an interesting way!
We couldn’t miss the opportunity to dig into this original, in all senses of the work, new TV series. We knew Hisone & Masotan was supported by an outrageous lineup of creators, but did the premiere live up to the pedigree of the staff? Time to analyze their work so far!
We’re heading into a Spring anime season that, barring a few exceptions, won’t have as many prestige projects and obvious animation festivals as some of the lineups we’ve covered before. However, it makes up for that with a multitude of smaller projects with potential to shine in unique ways. With talent being spread so thin, including some unlikely projects that would normally get overlooked, this preview is more needed than ever!
There are some downsides worth pointing out, but ultimately we got a decent outsourced episode elevated by Kiznaiver‘s Hiroshi Kobayashi. Time to delve into his take on Little Witch Academia.
It’s time for another look at TV series and particular episodes handled by outstanding staff, likely to become highlights of current anime over the next month. Quite a lot of variety!
Mob Psycho is a project overflowing with young talent dedicated to their craft with burning passion. And this episode was fire.
