Alas, it is winter (depending on where you live) with bone-chilling winds blowing their way through the bare, dreary trees. Like the winter trees, this anime season is certainly barer than the Fall season. But never fear- there are enough series to brighten the long, dark days and somber landscapes! Just as there are children waiting all year with bated breath to open their holiday gifts, we anime fans have been waiting eagerly for some of the big sequels airing this season - Shingeki no Kyojin, Vanitas no Karte, and JoJo no Kimyou na Bouken Part 6: Stone Ocean (if that second half drops this season of course!). There’s nothing like warming up in the frosty outdoors through some blood-pumping exercise, and for fans of baseball and Danganronpa, the extreme baseball themed series Tribe Nine by Danganronpa’s creator is likely to be of interest. In the deep of winter, there is nothing cozier than curling up with a cup of tea and a good history book. Or you can skip the books entirely and go for an alternate (and not entirely historically verifiable) adaption of history with the tragedy of Richard the Third in Baraou no Souretsu. Sabiuki Bisco offers a fun(gal) take on post-apocalyptic survival with humanity’s last hope hinging on the battle between good and evil mushrooms. Meanwhile, Orient poses an intriguing question of what happens when the roles of good guys and bad guys become reversed in society. To get in on some magic action fighting against youkai, check out Saiyuuki Reload: Zeroin, an alternate story in the Saiyuuki Reload universe. And, probably most importantly for this time of year, remember love comes in all shapes and sizes, with a lid for every pot - which seems to be the case for the gruesomely romantic pursuit between two killers in Koroshi Ai, the costuming enthusiasts in Sono Doll wa Koi wo Suru, and cutesy BL contender Sasaki to Miyano. This is Random Curiosity's Winter 2022 Preview!
