THE year 2023 offers a broad variety of wonderful anime, ranging from fresh shows adapted from well-liked manga series to the eagerly anticipated new seasons of established franchises. The list of anticipated anime for spring 2023 is provided below for those anime enthusiasts who are unsure about what’s coming next!
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba - To the Swordsmith Village
Haruo Sotozaki is the director of the standalone film Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba - To the Swordsmith Village, which is produced by the animation studio Ufotable. Tanjiro travels to a community of swordsmiths to fix his sword. Yet, this is more than simply a straightforward fetch quest – demons are advancing on the settlement.

The film will premiere on April 9, 2023.
The series, created by Production I.G., is based on Masakazu Ishiguro’s same seinen manga. The story takes place in a future where robots raise children in a nursery-like environment within secure walls. The youngsters are full of curiosity and promise, despite the fact that life behind the walls may appear uninteresting.
The outer world, however, is a wasteland populated by strong supernatural entities. The narrative centres on Maru and Kiruko as they leave the city limits in quest of ‘heaven’, which they discover to be nothing more than a pipe dream.
Heavenly Delusion is set to release on April 1, 2023.
The Ancient Magus Bride (Season 2)
The narrative of Chise Katori, who was abandoned as a kid and has since struggled because of her propensity to perceive terrifying otherworldly beings, is continued in this new season of Ancient Magus Bride. Chise, who has been driven insane by her struggles, sells herself to a slave trader, only to be purchased by Elias Ainsworth, a strange magus beast. He adopts her as both his apprentice and his bride(!). Chise then learns more about her incredibly strong affinity for magical energies and realises that there is more to life than misery and terror.
