Some Spring 2023 Anime Series Shouldn’t Be Missed

The Spring 2023 anime season is jam-packed with some of the best TV series to come out of Japan in a long time. This is one of the finest Spring seasons in a long time, not just due to the return of expected fan-favorites like Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, but also newcomers that stake their claim.

Here are the some of the most recommended Spring 2023 anime series in no particular order, including a nice mix of returning shows and brand new ones. There is also plenty of variation in genre, too, including action-packed mecha with a bit of rom-com to intense thrillers.

Oshi no Ko

When it comes to the single most impactful anime of this season, it’s no doubt Oshi no Ko. This HIDIVE-exclusive tells the story of 16-year-old idol, Ai Hoshino, who becomes pregnant with twins—except these twins are reincarnations of people with past regrets.

Uniquely set with a feature-length first episode, this series is unlike anything else in the anime space in terms of writing, characters, tone, and even animation. It’s no wonder it took the masterminds behind Kaguya-sama: Love Is War and Scum’s Wish to come up with it.

Dr. Stone: New World

The third season of Dr. Stone is here, and it finally moves the plot to a grander scale. New World features Senku and the rest of the survivors building a ship to traverse the world in hopes of finding the origins of the sudden petrification event. It features some great new characters alongside the tight familial-style adventure and pseudo-science class you expect.

Hell’s Paradise (Jigokuraku)

This newcomer is one part survival and another part over-the-top action with stunning animation from MAPPA. Gabimaru is an assassin ninja who is sent to an island to find the Elixir of Life in exchange for his freedom or die trying.

Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch From Mercury Season 2

The second season of Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch From Mercury is leaps and bounds better than the first. If you were someone like me who found the first season a bit too slow and lighthearted at times, it’s worth jumping back in.

The stakes are higher with the characters much older and it doesn’t hold back in its gorgeous mech action while still having fun characters.

My Home Hero

When it comes to the most underrated anime of the season, it goes to My Home Hero hands down. Tetsuo is a normal middle-aged man who ends up murdering his daughter’s boyfriend to protect her after learning about the man’s true nature as a Yakuza member.

This leads to a wonderfully smart and emotional cat-and-mouse chase as Tetsuo and his wife try to outplay the Yakuza and survive.
