Top 10 Best Anime February 2023 You Should Watch
The first month of the Winter 2023 anime season has come to an end and we now have a clearer view of which series are worth our time. A few have proven to be standouts that flew under the radar before their premiere. Others failed to impress and fell victim to the three-episode rule, while others were still forced to pull out due to unexpected delays. As a result, our picks of the 10 best animes to watch in February 2023 might surprise you.
Aggretsuko last season
Do we have a bit of egg in our faces after it was revealed that Aggretsuko’s final season will be released in February instead of January? undeniable. Are we any less excited about the conclusion of this series? Not in the slightest.
Between the deeper exploration of the consequences of Haida’s actions and Aggretsuko’s apparent leap into politics, there’s a lot going on in this final arc that’s worth hyping up for. That’s also not to say anything about the fact that we’ll get a chance to once again frolic with the zany but relatable cast of anthropomorphic creatures that feel more grounded than many other anime characters.
It’s bound to be a blast, and you’ll be hard pressed to put a few hours to better use when the series releases in full on February 16th.
While it might not have the action-packed and violent thrills of Season 1, Vinland Saga Season 2 remains a solid pick for the best February 2023 anime to watch.
The story of Thorfinn dealing with the guilt and regret of his actions growing up has provided an excellent emotional lineage that guides his actions as he navigates life as a slave trying to earn his freedom. It looks like it will continue to do so as he meets a host of new characters who will serve as both friends and allies in the challenges ahead.
The show was just a joy to watch in general too. The quieter setting of Ketil’s homestead mixed with the less somber and somber story of Thorfinn’s path to redemption made the show a much more enjoyable and relaxing experience than it otherwise could have been.
However, things could very easily get more action-packed as the series progresses, and you don’t want to miss out on what happens when it does.
Buddy Daddies is pretty clearly this season’s dark horse show, and it doesn’t take long to see why.
While the character designs and premise are similar to Spy x Family at first glance, they establish themselves as something entirely of their own early on. The story of lifelong friends Rei and Kazuki, who welcome a child and their struggles to be parents to them despite the constant challenges this poses for them and their work, is a more informed look at the challenges of parenthood than anyone would have thought.
The show is also exceptional in terms of its presentation. Between the animation quality, the sound design, and the writing, everything about the anime is top notch. This is true regardless of whether the story reaches a climactic confrontation or the trio go on a much-needed shopping spree for school supplies, and all the better for it.
Don’t play with me Miss Nagatoro! 2nd attack
Don’t play with me Miss Nagatoro! 2nd Attack is more of the same, but that was definitely its forte.
While it still features the same little things and gags that you would expect to see in the show’s first season, the game is still just as entertaining to watch. Senpai accidentally calling Nagatoro about her bluff, or Nagatoro finding a new way to tease Senpai about his insecurities is still a silly and entertaining experience no matter how many times you watch it.
Despite this, there are signs of progress toward actual character development. Both Senpai and Nagatoro come close to admitting their feelings for each other, and every moment that proves it feels like a well-deserved victory for all involved. We have little doubt that this will continue to be the case in the future and that the show will remain well worth watching in the weeks to come.
My hero academia season 6
Slowly but surely, My hero Academia is reaching the pinnacle of its narrative harvest.
While the show definitely takes time to adapt the material after the Paranormal Liberation War, this has largely been to the series’ advantage. Big scenes like Toya’s backstory and the full background of the Todoroki family’s troubles were given a lot of time, resulting in a bigger emotional hit to the viewers. Deku’s dilemma of how to deal with Shigaraki has also been given the breathing space it needs, perfectly setting up one of the series’ biggest conflicts.
Considering that this has now set the stage for the rise to the series’ climax – and some of the better battles the series has to offer before its final battle – we can’t help but say this is a show that one should look at.
Of course, Trigun Stampede made some significant changes to its source material. However, it’s still undeniably one of the best shows this season.
Its 3D animation continues to be a standout strength, adding movement and flair to action sequences not found in any other show. Its storylines, meanwhile, remain gripping, whether they fully embrace the wonder of the alien planet they’re set on or focus on the more human narratives that play out between the characters.
It’s also worth noting that the series is finally adapting more to the original source material, introducing heroes and villains who will be an integral part of the larger storyline. Key among them is Wolfwood, who offers the same charisma needed to bounce off Vash and take the series to new heights.
It might not be the remake fans want, but it might be hard to find a more imaginative and well-executed series in the coming weeks.
Tokyo revengers season 2
Tokyo Revengers season 2 has proven to be solid, not least because of its story.
This season features the same twists and turns one would expect in a tale of time travel, murders, and teenage gangs, while giving viewers plenty of narrative meat to chew on. Case in point: the conflict between Hakkai and his older brother Taiju, and Takemichi’s reason for getting drawn into their problems, remains gripping and seems to be shaping up to a worthwhile conclusion.
The animation was also adequate for what the series intends, delivering stable and clean artwork that never gets so bad that the show is unwatchable. Time will tell if that’s true once the more action-heavy segments kick in, but for now it remains a solid anime to keep up with in February.
Bungo Stray Dogs Season 4
There’s a lot we could cite to justify why Bungo Stray Dogs season 4 is still a show worth watching in February.
We could point out the solid animation and action that the show offers, especially given that the new group of enemies offers a variety of new abilities for the Armed Detective Agency to deal with. We could also hint at the narrative by capitalizing lines, with supporting characters like Ranpo continuing to establish themselves as interesting and engaging to watch.
What we will point out, however, is the fact that this show is the best example of an “anime” anime out there. It’s a crazy rollercoaster ride that shatters tropes of the medium with a novel idea and continues to capitalize on that fact brilliantly. Barring a disastrous decision on the part of the show’s creators, there’s little doubt this will remain the case for weeks to come.
Kaina of the Great Sea of Snow
Kaina of the Great Snow Sea is a unique beast among current anime offerings, and not just because of its 3D animation.
It’s a much quieter and more introspective series than most, and for the course of its first four episodes it was the definition of a slow burn. Its short moments of action were accompanied by long sections that focused on the fantasy setting and how the people and creatures that inhabit the world interact with each other.
At the same time, however, a clear conflict is emerging. Kaina is tasked with helping young Princess Liliha save her home, and after her capture by an enemy nation, he must rescue her.
How he’ll do so is still unclear, but the chance to catch that game – and see more of the amazing setting the show takes place in – is a major factor in making this show worth watching in the weeks to come.
It’s definitely remarkable that Blue Lock continues to be a standout series even as the second cour progresses.
While the initial premise of prioritizing ego in esports may still be off-putting, the storylines were undeniably compelling and novel. Each new challenge players face offers a fun twist on the usual ruleset and prevents the obstacles they must overcome from being repeated.
It was also interesting to see how the show alternates who is considered good and bad. The recent arc’s twist of adding former enemies to the protagonist’s team and their need to adapt to each other’s playstyles in order to emerge victorious has made for some great character interactions and kept the story progression fresh.
It’s still unclear where the story is going and how well it will hold up, but for now it’s a solid choice for an anime to watch in February 2023.
