2021 has been no slouch in the anime department, with the medium giving fans plenty of series to dive into over the course of the year, but it seems as if 2022 is looking to outdo its predecessor with some of the biggest, most highly anticipated arrivals in the genre to date. Not only will next year see some major new series finally making their debuts, including the likes of Studio MAPPA's Chainsaw Man, but it will also see some major returning including the likes of Attack On Titan's final season and the prequel film of Jujutsu Kaisen.
Though 2022 is still to have some big premieres and returns when it comes to the world of anime, the rest of 2021 still has some big debuts in store, with the likes of Demon Slayer's second season set to arrive this fall, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure's Part Six: Stone Ocean landing on Netflix this December, and Platinum End from the creators of Death Note making its anime debut. Though they might be premiering in the final months of this year, series like Demon Slayer and JoJo's Bizarre Adventure will continue into 2022, making for quite a number of options for anime fans to dig their teeth into as more series hit the small screen.
Twitter User ABD got the ball rolling on the anime hype train for 2022, listing a number of the bigger premieres and returns to the world of anime, including the likes of Attack On Titan, Jujutsu Kaisen, Black Clover, Blue Lock, and many others that will help round out some of the major movers and shakers in the medium:

One of the biggest Shonen franchises, My Hero Academia, will be taking a break from the world of anime following this week's finale for season five, with the third movie of the series premiering earlier this summer. However, many believe that the sixth season is a sure-fire bet for next year, which would be joining several other Shonen franchises for a 2022 premiere, including Dragon Ball Super's next movie, Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero.
