Best New Anime To Watch (Summer season 2022)

Lucifer and The Biscuit Hammer (Crunchyroll VRV Hulu)

We weren’t kidding about the world-ending biscuit. Lucifer and The Biscuit Hammer is the story of Amamiya, a student who receives a visit from a talking Lizard asking him to save the world. Amamiya is given mysterious powers, and is then met by a princess. They join forces to destroy the giant biscuit hammer hovering over the entire world. Lucifer and The Biscuit Hammer have been an entertaining and bizarre ride from the beginning. We’re looking forward to seeing what else this kooky series has to offer as the season goes on.

Satan, or Maou, as it is now, has decided to rebuild his empire through a job at an fast food restaurant after he loses a major battle. Maou soon learns that there are other beings from his world who have followed him to Tokyo. The Devil is Part-Timer offers a surprising amount action for such a silly comedy series. If you enjoy Miss Koboyashi’s Dragon Maid, you might like this series too. Season 2 of The Devil is a Part-Timer is now available on Crunchyroll and Hulu.

Classroom of the Elite Season 2 (Crunchyroll VRV)

Classroom of the Elite is another series that we haven’t seen in a long time. It’s been about 5 years since season 1 and the series continues to follow a lowly ranked first-year class in a merit-based school. The only way to buy anything at this school is to use the mysteriously gifted points each month. As the students discover more about the school, and their classmates, what seems like a normal slice of life becomes dramatic. This series really escalates so it’ll be interesting to see how season 2 pans out for our now experienced first-year class. Classroom of the Elite Season 2 can be viewed on Crunchyroll or VRV.

Cyberpunk: Edgerunners (Netflix)

Cyberpunk Edgerunners has arrived! The series, which is set in Cyberpunk 2077 follows a street boy who lives off the help of outlaws to survive in Night City. Studio Trigger is behind the anime and based on the trailers and opening that we’ve seen so far, it’s going to be a wild and beautifully animated series. Franz Ferdinand is featured in the opening credits is a nice touch. We’ve seen enough and can’t wait to check out Cyberpunk Edgerunners when it releases in September on Netflix.

Made in Abyss, The Golden City of the Scorching Sun. (HIDIVE).

Made in Abyss 2: The Golden City of the Scorching Sun is back Riko, an abandoned girl, lives in a small town around the Abyss. It is a large hole that runs deep into the planet. Reg, a robot-looking boy, meets Riko and they set out to explore the Abyss in search of their mother. Although the series appears lighthearted at first, it can become very dark due to the dangers below. Made in Abyss also has a classic movie that is available between seasons 1 & 2. Dawn of the Deep Soul is a great way to catch up on the series before you dive into season 2. HIDIVE has Dawn of the Deep Soul and Made in Abyss Season 2 available.

Uncle from Another World, (Netflix).

Uncle from Another World follows Takafumi, a student who has an uncle who’s been in a coma for 17 years. Takafumi meets his uncle when he returns from visiting him. He is muttering about another world. His uncle actually used magic and was in fact in another world. Uncle from Another World is a unique take on the isekai style where the protagonist is transported back to the present after an apparent death or one way teleportation. If you’re looking for a new comedy series this summer, Uncle from Another World is worth a try. You can stream the series on Netflix now.

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean Part 2 (Netflix)

The second part of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Stone Ocean is almost here! The series follows Jolyne, who is wrongfully convicted for murder and attempts to escape using her mysterious powers. For those that don’t know, the series has an intergenerational storyline and Stone Ocean takes place over 100 years after Part 1 or season 1. JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is known for its intense action, wild art style, and cultural music references. If you like action with a lot of weirdness, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure will be worth a watch. Before you start this new series, we recommend that you catch up on previous episodes. Stone Ocean part 2 is available on Netflix starting September 1.

Overlord Season 4 (Crunchyroll VRV)

Season 4 of Overlord finally sees the return to power of the Sorcerer King. Momonga is an MMO player who gets trapped when the servers go down. Momonga finds that the NPCs are more active, prompting her to seek their help in solving this mystery. What’s pretty cool about this isekai is that the protagonist starts off really powerful, so a lot of the interesting bits are from interactions with the characters and civilizations met along the journey. If you’re familiar with That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, you may enjoy this series too. Overlord Season 4 can be found on Crunchyroll or VRV.
