So far it’s been one hell of a ride this year for anime fans. Classic hits like Overlord, and The Devil Is a Part-Timer! have returned with their sequel seasons, causing fandoms to explode on twitter. But that’s not all what 2022 has in store. Arguably October will be the most hyped up month for anime releases.
Chainsaw Man, My Hero Academia season 6, are just some of the insane anime scheduled for the fall 2022 line-up. This article will state the most exhilarating releases for which you’ll be shivering with excitement.
Mob Psycho 100 III
The quirky anime by the creator of One Punch Man, Mob Psycho 100 returns with its third season in October. It’ll continue the journey of Mob, and Reigen as they navigate through their lives. The story will pick right up after the events concerning Claw, an organisation of Espers led by an extremely powerful tyrant, Suzuki Toichiro.
The second season of Mob Psycho 100 received much praise for its animation, delightful take on slice of life, and humorous tone. It received a rating of 8.81 on MyAnimeList, ranking at the 28th spot. Studio Bones animated the second season in 2019, and hype has been rapidly building up since then. Though fans knew a 100 days before the third season’s announcement, owing to the cryptic messages being posted by the official Twitter account of Mob Psycho. You can read more about that here.

Bleach: Thousand Year Blood War Arc
After Lying dormant for six years, the Bleach franchise unexpectedly announced that the manga’s last sequence, the Thousand Year Blood War Arc, will be receiving an anime adaptation. Instantly the story blew up, and many websites had become a playground for OG fans of the anime.
The eccentric Soul Reaper Ichigo Kurasaki finally returns, and this time the animation quality is off the roof. Studio Pierrot has revealed trailers showcasing the character designs, which look stunning. Be sure to check up on Bleach when it returns during the first week of October.
The gory, ghastly, and gruesome trek about a part-time devil hunter, Denji, whose able to turn into a chainsaw wielding machine of mayhem is also rumoured to air in October. We say this with a bit of doubt as December might be a possible air date as well, but that just seems too far off as Studio MAPPA has reminded us again and again that the anime will surely release this year.
The manga has been an exhilarating journey for readers, so thrilling in fact, that a sequel manga “Chainsaw Man Part 2” by Tatsuki Fujimoto has already been released. The release date may be in speculation but what we can say with certainty is that Chainsaw Man will be taking over the anime fandoms by storm through its bloody fight scenes, edgy humour, and splendidly superior animation.

Spy x Family Part 2
The recent hit spy drama anime by Studio Wit and Studio CloverWorks, Spy x Family has successfully captured the hearts of viewers. Some say that’s partly because anime viewers don’t know what a loving family is like, Ouch. But we all know it’s because of the beautiful animation, delightful story and vibrant characters, especially everyone’s darling little Anya Forger.
Spy x Family will continue its most watched anime spree with a Part 2 of the first season officially set for October, 2022. The second week of October is our likely guess at this point in time, but keep checking in on scifiscoop because we’ll let you know if any solid date is announced.
My Hero Academia Season 6
Izuku Midorya’s saga of surpassing All Might, and becoming the next symbol of peace will continue in the sixth season of My Hero Academia. In the end of season five, we witnessed how terrifying the League of Villains truly is. Shivers have since resonated through fans. The next season is stated to heavily influence the plot as the relationship between Shigaraki and Midorya approaches its climax.
Studio Bones has been hard at work animating the upcoming continuation of the franchise. After the recent release of the third film instalment, World Heroes Mission, the superhero fantasy created by Kōhei Horikoshi is returning in October 2022 to captivate fans yet again. A new trailer for the season has already been released, and my oh my, on this one they surely went Plus Ultra!

Impressively, the manga has just reached the milestone of having 10 million volumes in circulation.

High School DxD Season 5
This is probably my most anticipated anime in this list, and if you’ve watched Highschool DxD before, you’ll definitely know why. Issei Hyodo’s legendary harem saga continues in this sequel season. We’ll finally get to see his relationship develop deeper than ever with Rias, and Akeno. The steamy fantasy of the devil dragon possessed harem king will surely leave fans wanting more, like it always does.
Highschool DxD, which originally started off as a light novel, is written by Ichiei Ishibumi and illustrated by Miyama-Zero. The series has received much deserved praise for visuals, characters, and especially the plot over the years. Often referred to as having a pretty engagingly impressive plot for a harem fantasy anime.
