My Hero Academia Season 6 Episode 123

Fall 2022 Season Update

For the fall 2022 season, I’m planning to watch 12 anime series. As always, I may pick up additional anime as the season progresses. Typically, I pick up anime I initially passed over that turn out to be good. But, sometimes I also pick up garbage anime because they seem funny.

The only anime I’m watching that’s continuing from the previous season is Boruto: Naruto Next Generations. This is the third season in a row for which Boruto is my only continuing series. But, that streak is going to come to an end next season.

The anime I plan to watch that are returning with another season include My Hero Academia Season 6, Spy x Family Part 2, To Your Eternity Season 2, Mob Psycho 100 III, and Pui Pui Molcar: Driving School. In addition to these returning anime, Urusei Yatsura is getting a reboot. So, I’ll throw that in here, too.

Finally, the brand new anime I plan to watch are 4-nin wa Sorezore Uso wo Tsuku, Akiba Maid War, Bocchi the Rock!, Chainsaw Man, and Do It Yourself!!
