Welcome to the second half of our anime roundup for April 2022. Here’s a comprehensive list of new shows and their accompanying trailers premiering in the spring anime season! 

As mentioned in the previous list, please remember there’s no anime debuting on Funimation due to the Funimation/Crunchyroll merger. Funimation will continue to add episodes of current shows, but new series will air exclusively on Crunchyroll.

We will miss Funimation, but as we look to the future, we have everything here you should be watching!
