To say that this was a busy weekend of anime news would be a colossal understatement. As expected, Anime Japan 2022 delivered in a major way, and our team was on it throughout the weekend as it happened! If you were worried about missing anything, or if you just want to pore over all the lovely premiere dates, trailers, visuals and cast additions that made themselves known during the event, we’ve got you covered in our roundup.


See what’s new for everything we have to look forward to for the foreseeable future below, and let us know which announcements had you most excited this year. 




When it comes to narrowing down premiere timing for hotly-anticipated series and movies, Anime Japan is the place to be. From the next season of Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? to new adaptations like Black Summoner, we now have a better idea of when to expect all of the titles below. 





New series announcements, cast additions and other project updates were abundant throughout Anime Japan. Here’s a rundown of what’s in the pipeline next, including the official reveal of the RWBY TV anime, a 10th anniversary tease for JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure and the addition of NATSUKI HANAE’S ACTUAL CAT (!!!!) to the cast of the Love All Play anime. 





You might have to forego catching up on seasonal anime for the next hour or so, because there are a ton of trailers to watch from the weekend announcements. Whether you’re pumped for season two of The Rising of the Shield Hero or just want to chill with the voice talent of CUE!, we’ve got something for ya right here. 





Sometimes they arrive along with trailers and other times they’re on their own, but you can always count on a good key visual to brighten your day. See what SPY x FAMILY, GOBLIN SLAYER and more had to show for themselves at Anime Japan 2022. 



That’s… it? We couldn’t really ask for more now, could we? It was another landmark year for Anime Japan, and after a nap or three we’ll be counting down the days until the next one!
