The Best Anime to Stream in October 2022 – Screen Rant

October 2022 is a great month to watch anime, with the beginning of Fall premiere season and some beloved series coming to streaming platforms.
October is the best month to start watching a new anime series, with the new seasons of the most appreciated shows coming out on the main streaming platforms. October 2022 is no exception, with the return of a great classic with Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War, modern smash hits like Mob Psycho 100 and My Hero Academia getting a new season, and even the debut of one of the most anticipated anime in recent years: Chainsaw Man.
Anime fans know that Fall is the best season of the year. The most successful anime usually premiere between late September and early October, and thanks to the diffusion of streaming services fans worldwide can watch their favorite series at the same time as they air in Japan. The October 2022 lineup has a great mix of titles: some are getting a new season, others a much-awaited debut, and there is even a unique occurrence with Bleach coming back after ten long years, with the adaptation of the final arc of the manga. Once again, Crunchyroll dominates the anime-dedicated streaming services, but there is also an interesting surprise, with Bleach airing on Disney+ and Hulu. Here are our suggestions on what anime should be on every fan watchlist this October.

Mob Psycho 100 returns with a third season, airing on Crunchyroll from October 5. Bones studio will once again produce the adaptation of the webcomic created by ONE, the author of One-Punch Man (whose third season has also been recently announced). Kageyama Shigeo, nicknamed Mob, returns with his funny but also thought-provoking adventures in a world of psychics, evil spirits, and high school bullies. Just like in One-Punch Man, the story created by ONE highlights how an incredibly gifted and powerful person can feel incompetent and out of place in his day-to-day life. Another successful series returning in October is My Hero Academia, whose season 6 debuted on Crunchyroll on October 1. Fans of the world of superheroes and villains created by Kohei Horikoshi know that this season, which adapts the Paranormal Liberation Arc from the manga, will throw viewers in the middle of one of the biggest battles in the series. Season 6 of My Hero Academia is also produced by Bones, which is a guarantee of great quality.
October 2022 will not just see the return of beloved series, but also the debut of one of the most anticipated anime in years, Chainsaw Man. The manga created by Tatsuki Fujimoto became the biggest sensation in the landscape during its original run between2018 and 2020, and fans have been literally clamoring for an anime adaptation. In recent months, their patience has been rewarded, first with the announcement that the popular studio MAPPA (Jujutsu Kaisen, Attack on Titan: The Final Season) would be producing the series, and then with an official air date: October 11. Crunchyroll will bring the series to viewers outside of Asia. October 2022, however, will also have another long-awaited debut. The final season of Bleach, adapting the Thousand-Year Blood War arc from the manga (which did not appear in the original anime), is finally a reality. Studio Pierrot is returning to produce this sequel to one of its most appreciated series, and they will surely make justice to Tite Kubo's best-selling manga. Viz Media, which owns the worldwide rights for the series, has announced that Bleach will simulcast on Hulu in the United States, and it will also be available on Disney+ internationally, beginning on October 10.
Once again, anime fans can look forward to an amazing Fall season with an exciting array of series, but Mob Psycho 100, My Hero Academia, Chainsaw Man, and Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War all stand out as the can't-be-missed anime for October 2022.
