Here’s the Most-Searched Anime Series of 2022 So Far

Anime is set to have a big year in 2022, with the likes of My Hero Academia, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, and Dragon Ball Super set to return. With plenty of new anime series also arriving this year, including the likes of Spy x Family and Vampire in the Garden, it will be interesting to see if other franchises are able to overtake any franchises on the current list. While there are some anime series that won’t come as a surprise, there may be some franchises missing that throw fans for a loop when it comes to overall searches on Google.

While anime has been a major part of Japan’s culture for quite some time, the medium is continuing to grow by leaps and bounds all over the world, with the internet allowing anime fans to both watch new television series, read new manga, as well as venture into territory that they otherwise wouldn’t be able to experience outside of this day and age.

The current list takes into account the most searched anime of the early part of this year, so this list is definitely subject to change for the remaining months of 2022.

Which anime have you enjoyed the most for 2022? Feel free to let us know in the comments or hit me up directly on Twitter @EVComedy to talk all things comics and anime.

“It’s 19th-century Paris, and young vampire No? hunts for the Book of Vanitas. Attacked by a vampire driven insane, a human doctor called Vanitas tempts No? with a mad crusade to “cure” the entire vampire race. While allying with him may be dangerous, news reaches Vanitas that the Beast of G?vaudan has returned, and No? is being brought along to investigate this phantom from the past.”
