Anime lovers are always on the lookout for new and latest anime to watch. The coolest part about being an anime fanatic is that no matter how many anime you end up watching, there will always be more and something new every day. This is what keeps the world of Japanese animated entertainment so vibrant and colorful. And these days, with the creation of more and more anime studios, the production of new shows has also been consistent. And increasing releases also create an increase in demand. And I believe these anime studios have been doing a great job in keeping up with the demand and supply chain!

That being said, the year 2021 saw a number of new releases throughout the year. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, and production houses suffering major losses due to it, the flow of release of new content in the market, hasn’t faltered. In fact, a lot of releases that were delayed and postponed due to the pandemic being at its pinnacle in 2020, came out this year. And 2022 has so many new titles lined up that we are seriously at a loss for what to watch!

Sasaki and Miyano

Sasaki and Miyano anime series

Release Date: January 2022

Studio: Studio DEEN

Overview: This upcoming anime of 2022 is set to release in the month of January next year. This BL anime drama will revolve around the cliché trope of bad-boy high-school senior Miyano meeting shy and awkward junior Sasaki and one of them falling head-over-heels in love with the other. Although Miyano claims to be an expert in boys’ love mangas and anime, he doesn’t realize that he is in one similar story himself! Will he be able to come into terms with his own feelings with Sasaki’s help and create his own happily ever after?

Our thoughts: Being a BL drama fan myself I’m sincerely rooting for this high-school romantic fluff upcoming anime of 2022. The manga was pretty decent and up to the mark so let’s see whether the anime would be able to live up to its reputation or not.
