Anime Corner has been setting aside time for the last two years to honor the community’s favorite anime of the year, and for the first time, we expanded our yearly polls from one to 19 categories. The voting for the top 2022 titles concluded last week, and we are now ready to reveal the results. The data has been collected from more than 100,000 people, and the winners of Anime Corner’s Third Anime Awards have been chosen!
Before you continue, we’d like to remind you that the rankings below should not influence your decision to watch anime series that aren’t ranked highly. Each show has its own style, and everyone’s anime tastes vary.
This category received votes from 82,306 people, and the results are not surprising, but they are quite interesting. Attack on Titan has taken the top spot, with Bleach coming in second. The top four series ranked are all sequels, making Cyberpunk: Edgerunners the best new anime of 2022.
