It is too early to predict what the best anime of 2023 will be, as most of the anime that will be released in 2023 have not yet been announced. However, some of the highly anticipated anime that are expected to be released in 2023 include:
Attack on Titan (進撃の巨人) is one of the most notable anime series of 2023 since its final part as Season 4 Part 3 comes within the year. The first three seasons that consist of 59 episodes were made by Wit Studio from 2013 to 2019, and the final and fourth season made by Mappa started in the end of 2022. After 28 episodes between 2020 and 2022, Attack on Titan Season 4 Part 3 awaits you in 2023. The dark-fantasy anime series was bringing lots of mysteries related to the titans into the open and the final part depicts what happens to the protagonist Eren Yeager in the end.
It’s never too late to hear the tale of Thorfinn.
Vinland Saga is a historical anime that immerses you in the world of 11th-century kings and civilizations. The story follows a young Viking warrior named Thorfinn, hellbent on avenging his father’s death.
While the first season primarily focuses on the warring factions, season 2 shows a more introspective look into the daily lives of its characters. Rather than swinging swords and shouting battle cries, Thorfinn now lives on a farm, cutting down trees and growing pastures.
Ranking of Kings: Treasure Chest of Courage (王様ランキング 勇気の宝箱), the second season of the popular fantasy anime series Ranking of Kings, is scheduled to air in the spring of 2023. The first season including 23 episodes was adapted from the same titled manga series published since 2017 from 2021 to 2022. The heartwarming story moves both children and adults. The season 2 presents unsung Bojji’s episodes you did not see in the previous season.
Season: Spring of 2023
Through Takemichi Hanagaki’s eyes, we got to see how the Tokyo Manji Gang was formed, Manjiro Sano’s history with Kazutora Hanemiya, and why they still have beef with each other in Tokyo Revengers season 1.
The 24-episode first season climaxed during the Bloody Halloween arc. At an abandoned construction site, a brawl, instigated by Kazutora, broke out between Valhalla and the outnumbered Tokyo Manji Gang. Even though Takemichi tried to prevent Keisuke Baji’s death, it was inevitable.
In the final episode of the season, Mikey declared the merger of Valhalla and Tokyo Manji Gang, which bring antagonists Shuji Hanma and Tetta Kisaki closer to Takemichi and further away from his goals
Besides these internal problems that our hero struggles to solve, the Tokyo Manji Gang also have to deal with external problems caused by rival gang Black Dragons which season 2 will explore. Expect to learn more about Chifuyu Matsuno’s past, present, and future.
The battle between humanity and demons continues when Demon Slayer returns in April with its third season. The highly-anticipated Swordsmith Village Arc picks up right where the Entertainment District left off.
To get Demon Slayer fans hyped up, Japanese production companies Aniplex and Shueisha, along with animation studio Ufotable, will release the second Demon Slayer movie “To the Swordsmith Village” — which shows events from the last two episodes from Season 2 and the first episode of Season 3.
The Swordsmith Village Arc will feature two new heroes, the Mist Hashira, Muichiro Tokito, and the Love Hashira, Mitsuri Kanroji. The two Hashira, along with Demon Slayer’s main protagonist, Tanjiro Kamado, will go up against vicious and cold-blooded villains Hantengu and Gyokko, two Upper Rank demons that have cruel and heartless personalities.
The upcoming Demon Slayer season will be an exciting and important portion of the Demon Slayer story, introducing new characters and exploring deeper themes of loyalty, duty, and sacrifice. If you enjoyed the previous seasons, this arc will be one to remember.
