While Summer 2022 doesn’t have as many new shows, it does bring lots of highly anticipated sequels. Among them, it seems Made in Abyss Season 2 and Overlord IV are the current frontrunners of the Summer 2022 anime season.
Aside from their high scores, the two shows are also the most popular when it comes to discussions on Reddit. In the recent r/anime weekly recap, Made in Abyss Season 2 Episode 1 and Overlord IV Episode 1 are the top two in terms of upvotes and comments.
Given the popularity and great reception of the first season, it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise that Made in Abyss Season 2 is a frontrunner of Summer 2022.
Meanwhile, Overlord IV is the fourth season of the popular isekai anime series which is based on the Overlord light novel series by Kugane Maruyama.
While it has been nearly four years since the release of Overlord Season 3, the franchise has managed to retain its popularity.
Aside from the light novels continuing to release over the years, Overlord has also received a game adaptation.
Right now, it’s a bit too early to call either of these the anime of the season. But given their popularity and high initial scores, it’s fair to say that Made in Abyss Season 2 and Overlord IV are shaping up to be the must-watch shows of Summer 2022.
