2022 brought us some anime that were absolute bangers, but unfortunately, not ever series measured up. For this list, we're talking about the most disappointing 2022 anime. Let's commiserate about the shows that we thought were going to be great, but just didn't measure up.
The anime on this list aren't necessarily the worst anime of 2022. Instead, they're anime that seemed like they were going to be good or at least okay, but were lacking in some crucial way.
Some of them have strong points. Bubble, for example, is visually stunning - it's just lacking in the plot and character department. Others wasted their potential - Requiem of the Rose King was an amazing manga that should have had an amazing anime adaptation but didn't. Others were second seasons that might have seemed okay if not for the hype around the first season - The Rising of the Shield Hero 2 and The Devil is a Part Timer 2 just couldn't live up to their predecessors.
