A number of anime series released in the spring of 2022 have made the audience pay special attention thanks to the humorous and fun elements it brings.
In addition to the series that launched the long-awaited sequels like Kaguya-sama: Love Is War and Komi Can’t Communicate, many new comedy titles have come out and have made a big splash. The following three anime can be considered as the “rising stars” of the comedy genre in this anime season.
Aharen-san Is Indecipherable
The film revolves around Reina Aharen, a petite and cute student with a calm voice who is quite bad at determining distance and personal space. If she doesn’t restrain herself, she will get too close to everyone. The only person who tries to understand her is classmate Raidou Matsuboshi. Despite having a threatening and intimidating face, he is a soft boy with a wild imagination.
The movie starts with a little misunderstanding and eventually turns into complicated situations that the anime community is all too familiar with. However, Aharsen-san is Indecipherable offers something completely new and a bit mature, by taking elements from Komi Can’t Communicate and mixing them with a bit of Toradora and My Love Story.
Ya Boy Kongming!
As a rookie in the spring 2022 anime, Ya Boy Kongming – Khong Minh Likes to Party is capturing the audience’s love. Humorous and easy to understand are the first impressions of the audience about this work.
The content of Ya Boy Kongming tells about the general of the Three Kingdoms, Khong Minh. He struggled all his life, facing countless battles that made him a brilliant strategist. So when he was on his hospital bed, he just wished to be reborn in a peaceful world.
Immediately, he was taken straight to the party center of today in Tokyo and decided to support Eiko – an unknown young female singer to become a music star. Can even a brilliant strategist like Khong Minh adapt to the new pulse of society?
Spy x Family
One of the longest-running manga on Shonen Jump, the action-comedy manga has enjoyed massive success last year, with over eight million copies in print. Overcome with victory, Spy x Family has launched an anime this season and has achieved many impressive achievements.
The plot of Spy x Family begins when one of the elite spies is assigned one of his toughest missions. That is getting married and having a baby in just seven days. A funny story happened then. From finding a child who can read minds, Spy X Family is off to an interesting start.
Much of the film’s humor comes from Anya, the child who often misunderstands a lot of things despite having the ability to read other people’s minds. Her expressions and reactions to what she’s reading – especially in the minds of her parents, have made her a character loved by many readers.
