21. Trapped In A Dating Sim

Trapped In A Dating Sim new romance anime of 2022

Normally it’s girls who get trapped in dating sims so imagine my surprise when I hear about an anime where the boy gets trapped in a dating sim. I thought, why not give it a watch? Surely, there would be nothing weird. It turns out there was something weird.

In this dating sim, the girls are the ones ruling the world. They sit at a round table and only beautiful and handsome men get to sit at the round table. Now, how can our average joe win the hearts of these ladies?

Well, it turns out this guy has already played the game so once he gets trapped in it, he already knows all the tips and tricks he needs to rise up in ranks and sit among the ladies.

By the way, this combines a lot of genres at once fantasy, romance, mecca, isekai, school; you name it. So in other words, this has a little something in it for everyone.

20. Love After World Domination

Love After World Domination new romance anime of 2022

This is that perfect anime where enemies turn lovers and this one takes that concept to the very extreme. Here our boy wants to achieve world peace and the girl wants to control the world. So it’s more like a bad-boy good-girl type of anime, but in truth, these two are secret love birds. That’s right.

Even though they kill each other in public, they secretly have an affair in private. Now, this is one of those romance slice-of-life anime.

If you watch this anime expecting something like Legend of the Galactic Heroes, you’ll be disappointed, but if you want a cute slice-of-life romance where two people kill each other and then love each other, then this is the show for you.

19. Love Of Kill

Love Of Kill new romance anime of 2022

Imagine what would happen if two main characters from the assassin’s creed franchise fell in love with each other. Oh, these two must be enemies and it should happen in the modern world where you have guns, not poison blades.

We’ve got one boy assassin falling in love with a girl who is also an assassin. Does this mean he’s aiming a bullet for her heart? If you want to make it sound cheesy, then sure, why not, but the way love works here is different. Instead of sending our assassin girl gifts, our guy just sends her targets.

Trust me, the way the relationship starts might throw some off but if you endure that premise, you’ll have a nice romance anime or an assassin anime.

18. A Couple Of Cuckoos

A Couple Of Cuckoos new spring anime of 2022

I think each season anime premises get way weirder. But remember Kanojo mo Kanojo, well this year we got A Couple of Cuckoos. We have two characters who were switched at birth Nagi Umino and Erika Amano.

Once Nagi realizes that happened, he goes on to meet his real parents and finds Erica, a girl who asked him to be her fake boyfriend. Turns out her parents like this too. They agree to marry Nagi and Erika as a solution to the hospital switch.

As I said, I don’t know who came up with this premise but at least it hooked me up. Once you look at the posters, you already know where this is heading. So go expecting more than one girl to earn the spotlight. It’s being released on April 24th this month, so you’ll have to wait a little bit longer to start watching it.

17. How A Realistic Hero Rebuild The Kingdom Season 2

Anime With Best Leaders

Have you played civilization games? Well, this is a civilization with waifu that looks like a Saber. She looks so much like Saber; they decided to cut her hair in the new season because we all know cutting the hair of anime girls is the new trend. If you need some realistic isekai, then you need a hero who’s a realist.

Anyone who watched the first season of this anime knows how well it combined the political elements of an isekai world with some nice romance in kingdom building. The second season also maintained the same hype by giving us more challenging political tasks and adding more girls to the infinity gauntlet.

We had a close contender for this anime called “Genius Prince’s Guide to Raising a Nation Out of Debt”, but I think the realist hero handled the political elements better. But I still like Nito from the other anime.

16. My Stepmom’s Daughter Is My Ex

My Stepmom's Daughter is my Ex new summer anime of 2022

Yep, it’s Japan’s messing with the family formula again and just like the title says, this time, the guy’s ex-girlfriend is his stepmom’s daughter.

If you felt something was wrong in that sense, that’s because you aren’t used to seeing anime like this. But anyone who survived the domestic girlfriend hype train knows these sorts of anime are everyday occurrences by now. If anyone wants to know the long story, this is about Mizuto Irido and Yume Ayai.

These two dated in middle school started fighting over the most trivial things and then broke up. But a few years later, when Irido’s father remarries, the guy meets his new stepmom and her daughter. It’s a fun new romance anime, so if you are looking for a different plot, this is the anime for you.

15. Tokyo Mew Mew New

TOKYO MEW MEW NEW

When the title has the word Mew Mew in it, then you should know this anime is not something serious. So don’t go expecting some severe heartaches and a deep love story. Just go watch it for the comedy.

Here we have a bunch of scientists creating a team of superheroines with amazing superhuman abilities. We follow Ichigo Momomiya, who one day wakes up and discovers she’s one of those superheroines.

Now she has to stop an alien invasion dressed as a cat girl. As I said, this isn’t a serious show, but it knows how to use its comedic and fantasy elements really well. So, give this one a shot, you’ll love it, and if you love cat girls, you’ll love it more.

Dubbed – Yes

Season – 1(12 Ep.)


14. Harem in the Labyrinth of Another World

Harem in the Labyrinth of Another World

Once again, we have a title explaining the show’s basic premise. We have a harem inside a labyrinth. What do we have? Well, we have a budgeted version of Raphtalia.

Meet the high school student Michio Kaga, who like every unlucky or lucky isekai bastard that gets transported to another world where he can claim idol-level girls. Let’s be honest, the anime is only targeted to a specific audience; if you aren’t within that specific audience, this anime isn’t for you.

But one thing I’ve noticed is that this anime delivers on its promises. If you don’t know what I mean, come back after watching the fourth episode. This anime falls into ecchi categories, so try this ecchi romance anime when you are alone.

IMDB(6.3)

Dubbed – Yes

Season – 1(12 Ep.)


13. Engage Kiss

Engage Kiss new summer anime of 2022

Who needs a yandere? It’s been some time since we had one of those. Here we have a pink yandere, a lazy guy, and his ex-girlfriend trying to fight off various monsters. Here we go to Bayron City, where every citizen is promised a luxurious and comfortable lifestyle.

Still, some demons threaten humanity, and our main character Shuu Ogata fights off these demons with his demonic partner Kisara. Engage Kiss is a good balance of action in romance but it fits very well with the whole rom-com genre.

The main character is a love-him or hate-him fella, but the chemistry and the interactions between him and his demon partner make this show so enjoyable. Also, this has a love triangle so get ready for some who should I choose moments.

IMDB(7.9)

Dubbed – Yes

Season – 1(12 Ep.)


12. Vermeil in Gold

Vermeil in Gold

This guy summons a demon, that’s it. I know not a big deal but the demon needs magical energy, so we need some callbacks to the fate franchise to see how mana transfer is done.

Jokes aside, the premise of this show is pretty simple. We have Alto, a boy who’s not very skilled in magic but ends up summoning the sealed demon Vermeil. Now, if you think the guy can live happily ever after, then let me remind you that we have a childhood friend.

As Vermeil grows closer to our boy Alto, his childhood friend becomes more jealous. So, in a nutshell, this anime is about demons, love triangles, envy, and different ways you could transfer mana. If you ask me, this is a pretty fun romance anime, so why don’t you just go give it a watch?

11. The Greatest Demon Lord Is Reborn as a Typical Nobody

Upcoming Isekai Anime 2022

This is your typical overpowered guy reincarnated among some weak normies show you get every season. Looks like someone was inspired by Misfit of Demon King Academy. Here we meet the demon lord Varvatos who decides to reincarnate with his magical strength set to average.

But when he reincarnates, he finds out the rest of the people in this world are weak as hell and guess what? Since this is anime, he has ladies fawning all over him.

Now the bad thing about this show is that you’ve seen all of this before but the good thing is that this anime is pretty enjoyable despite being another copy of an overpowered demon lord. This doesn’t have a romance like some of the other anime on this list, but since this guy is a demon lord, he is like a walking magnet that attracts anime girls.

10. The Maid I Hired Recently Is Mysterious

The Maid I Hired Recently Is Mysterious

Time for some good old wholesome bullying and this time, our bully is a maid because maids these days come out with different personalities. Here our maid has been hired to take care of her employer’s son Yuuri but this guy is way too delusional and thinks the maid is plotting something behind his back.

The maid knows about this and teases him all the time. Yeah, this is also one of those wholesome mate shows where the maid sama is a bully. There is some great comedy here, and honestly, I feel like this is one of the underrated shows out there.

By underrated, I don’t mean that there’s some huge plot line going on here that’ll blow your mind, but if you are looking for a new 2021 rom-com that can make you laugh while giving us a crazy main character and a maid, this is the show for you.

09. Aharen-San Wa Hakarenai

Aharen-San Wa Hakarenai new spring anime of 2022

An adorable slice of life comedy that seems similar to My Senpai is Annoying. If you have watched it, then you will know the difference between long and short relationships. We all have that one stranger yet interesting individual in class who remain silent from the rest of the world. In our case, that would be Reina Aharen.

A quiet and short girl meets Raidou Matsuboshi when he picks her eraser. Reina mistook his act as a sign of kindness. As a result, the two become an inseparable duo. Thus it began the tale of their friendship.

Overall, the story does capture the cute and funny vibe thanks to our main duo’s friendship. I had read some of the source material and from what I can tell, the story is cute. Simple yet hilarious at the same time, so be prepared for this awesome romance comedy.

08. Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove It R=1-sinθ

new romance anime of 2022

This time we have science. Don’t worry, you don’t need your Ph.D. to understand what’s going on because this time, we’re looking at love from the perspective of two scientists. Science Fell in Love explores the scientific side of love in a really funny way.

This anime is set around two scientists from Saitama university as they have made it their mission to try and solve the mystery of love. If you want to be a scientist, it is compulsory to watch this romance anime because it shows you how crazy you can get if you try to dive into too much science.

Especially if the subject involves love. Season two of the show is coming this April, so make sure to be ready for it by watching the first season and studying a couple of science textbooks.

07. Komi Can’t Communicate Part 2

Komi Can’t Communicate Best Anime of 2021

The romantic comedy came as a breath of fresh air in 2021 and fans were deeply entangled by the character of Komi Shouko. So, it won’t surprise anyone when the series quickly announced its sequel in December 2021.

The story’s main focus is Komi who can’t communicate with strangers. We need our MC Tadano to come up with a plan to make 100 friends to overcome her communication disorder. To that, our MC will help her achieve the goal.

Season one has fast-forwardly captured the 85 chapters of the manga and will continue its story from chapter 86. A quick time stamp to the one who likes to know things quickly. It is to be expected this season’s story will be forced more on a romance part. So, who else is excited for this season?

06. Rent A Girlfriend Season 2

harem anime 2021

Remember to rent a girlfriend, remember Chizuru, remember that pink-haired girl who looked cute, remember that blonde girl you wanted a punch in the face. With all those sweet memories, the second season of this show is coming this spring and it’s no better time to give the first season a watch back again.

Now I know this isn’t particularly a new anime since we already got the first season and it became way too popular, but since the popularity has died down a bit, I thought to bring this up again. We all know how slow-paced the manga is going.

At this point, it will be my grandkids who will read the end of this manga. So, ignore the manga and get ready for the rent a girlfriend experience because renting girlfriends aren’t the only thing we’re going to do this season.

IMDB(6.5)

Season – 2(24 Ep.)


05. Date A Live Season 4

comedy anime 2022

Dear God, this anime is finally coming back. Do you know how many times this got pushed around? First, it was supposed to be released in fall last season, then it was pushed to winter, then he didn’t have a release date, and it turns out it’s finally getting released this spring.

I’m pretty sure long-term fans of this series might have read the light novel but after seeing the pacing of the last episode in season 3. But come on, we see Kurumi animated, and that should give you enough motivation to start watching this show.

Once again, we have our good boy Shidou trying to save the world by dating girls. If he doesn’t date these girls or spirits since that’s what the anime likes to call them, the world will be destroyed and this time, we don’t have the avengers, so it’s one boy and one harem.

04. Call of the Night

Call Of The Night upcoming fantasy/isekai anime of 2022

I was getting tired of vampires so I almost decided to throw this one off, but when I randomly got to watch the first episode, I was immediately hooked. Like seriously, this gives you a whole relaxing vibe.

I don’t know if it’s the character design, the animation, the background art, or even the whole lo-fi soundtrack because this one makes you want to wake up from bed and stop sleeping.

Anime follows Kou Yamori, who has insomnia, getting recruited by a vampire lady called Nazuna, who tries to transform into a vampire and fails. Well, it turns out the guy she bites needs to fall in love with the vampire that bites him in order for him to become a vampire.

So, Kou decides to fall in love with the vampire girl he just met so he can become a vampire and finally enjoy the night without falling asleep. This has everything I want an anime to watch before I go to bed, and it’s pretty relaxing and calming too. This will definitely be a sleeper hit in 2022. No pun intended.

03. Kaguya-Sama: Love Is War -Ultra Romantic-

comedy anime 2022

The moment every rom-com fan is waiting for and all our prayers have been heard. Finally, Kaguya-Sama is back for a third season with the title of Ultra Romantic. Our student council president Miyuki Shirogane and vice president Kaguya Shinomiya have crushes on each other.

The problem is that they let their pride and ego get in the way of their feelings. Resulting in silly antics to get the other person to surrender and admit their crush. This was the premise of seasons one to two, but the rules have been changed with the intro of a new set of characters in season three.

We’ll now feature a new set of rules and antics between our MC and Kaguya. I have seen people often debate about the pairing of Miyuki and Miko.

However, all I can say is arrogance is an ample supply. So, if you are excited for this season, go watch it because it started airing right now.

02. Shikimori’s Not Just A Cutie

Kawaii Dake Ja Nai Shikimori-San anime new spring anime of 2022

Each season we get this best girl show. Last season it was My Dress-up Darling and it turns out this time it’s Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie. Rather than another popular girl falls for shyness and introvert who has an existential crisis anime, this feels like a deconstruction of the perfect girlfriend trope.

We’ve got a girl named Shikimori, who looks like the perfect girlfriend anyone can have but it turns out she has a really dark side once you press the wrong buttons. But guess what, her boyfriend loves it.

Yeah, this is one of those animes where the girl and the boy start dating early, so we don’t have to go through that getting to know the tsundere melodrama again and trust me, Shikimori is going to be the best girl this season. Consider that as my prophecy.

IMDB(7.4)

Dubbed – No

Season – 1(12 Ep.)


01. My Dress-Up Darling

new winter anime of 2022

This show has been topped a lot of my lists lately, so I should stop adding this anime, but when speaking about the best romance anime of 2022, you definitely cannot ignore this masterpiece. Sure, it doesn’t do anything innovative but it knows how to make you feel wholesome and turn you into another martin simp but the reason why this show shines is because of its characters.

The characters are built from the usual tropes with a shy guy and over a popular girl, but the more we see their lives, the more we see how different they are. Come on, when was the last time you saw an anime guy who wanted to be a doll artisan.

The show also speaks about how you shouldn’t give up your passion just because society sees you differently and we all know Marin is the best girl. Putting this anime in a different spot is a clear disrespect for her.

My Dress-up Darling is the best romance anime of 2022 with the best waifu of 2022, and if you haven’t watched it yet, then give yourself a favor and go watch it right now.
