Top 10 Most Talked About Anime Of 2023

It's that time of the year when we must look back on our anime journey. Kouhais and Senpais who keep track of their otaku activities will use this reflection to set the bar high for next year. 

So, how would you celebrate 2024? 

Apart from the TokyoTreat munch, otakus will also celebrate with big recaps of what happened in the anime industry. For this article, we take a look back into the top 10 anime series that took 2023 by storm.

Runner-ups: Blue Lock, Hell's Paradise, Bleach, Trigun Stampede, Buddy Daddies, Rurouni Kenshin, and Scott Pilgrim Takes Off.

Without further ado, let's begin the countdown. 

#10 - Junji Ito Maniac: Japanese Tales of the Macabre

In January 2023, twenty macabre pieces inspired by Junji Ito's eccentric and fascinating worldview became available on Netflix. Several fans of weird and creepy shows are already aware of Ito's masterpiece. However, when Netflix premiered some adaptations, it became more widely known.

#9 - Boruto

Love it or hate it, Boruto is an extension of one of our most beloved anime shows, Naruto. As most of the characters we followed are still in this series, we still need to know their fate, whether we watch the show or not. As we're still members of many Naruto groups, we saw how Sasuke's fate shook everyone, and it's why it's still one of the most talked about anime of the year.

#8 - Spy x Family

Spy x Family is another successful title that made waves in the anime realm. One of the best-selling manga with an anime adaptation that quickly won hearts because of its humor, storytelling, artwork, lovable characters, and action scenes; we can't deny the excitement of every otaku GC and group.

#7 - Demon Slayer: Swordsmith Village Arc

Though the fights weren't as exhilarating as Entertainment District Arc, Swordsmith Village still took the otaku world by storm. With stunning animation, breathtaking scenes, and the performance of pillars, we're left wanting more. Thankfully, it's one of the anime series that will continue next year.

#6 - Yu Yu Hakusho

While the anime had already taken its final vow, Yoshihiro Togashi's creation made it to the headlines again because of a Netflix live-action adaptation aired only a few weeks ago. It carried the old animation back to the table, and the younger generation is now curious about Hunter x Hunter's predecessor.

#5 - Zom 100: Bucketlist of The Dead

Netflix is doing a good job with its live actions so far. One of these titles includes Zom 100: Bucketlist of The Dead. However, the anime entered an indefinite hiatus after they faced challenges in meeting schedules until they finally lost their TV slot. Hopefully, it won't have the same fate as High School of the Dead.

#4 - Pokémon

Ash Ketchum finally gets his graceful exit, and everyone — and we said everyone, including us — shed tears of joy and contentment after his journey finally ended. It may be open-ended, but to many of us who waited decades, our dark existential worries can finally be put to bed.

#3 - Attack On Titan

It was a tough decision to put AOT in the third spot. While the brilliant plot twist and character legends make it a good contender for the title of best anime of all time, it's not as boisterous and controversial as the top two. On its concluding episodes, the AOT hype is already past its peak. This is due to the dissection of the final season into many parts, giving its audience the feeling that the anime should have ended last year. 

Don't get us wrong: The hype is gone, but the love is still there.

#2 - Jujutsu Kaisen

Gojo Satoru is one heck of a popular character. Our feeds have been filled with his face, eyes, bum, and more for a month or two. Even Yuji Itadori's fan video had thousands of views. Whatever anime community you visit, there's always the JJK rap and spoilers. Sadly, the Jujutsu Kaisen story is about to end, and we're sure this handsome roster of anime boys will be missed (pun intended).

#1 - One Piece

Many things happened in the world of One Piece. The Netflix live-action adaptation, Wano arc, Mackenyu as Zoro, Luffy's Gear 5, the manga/anime's nearing conclusion, etc., are already big news on their own. Fans have been busy discussing theories, live-action castings, and scenes that should get animated, like Luffy singing the Baka song and more.

Even now, OP appears in the news on an issue we won't articulate about. This anime institution has made its mark in the world's history, and everyone who's heard of it will sail together with the Strawhats until the One Piece story finally meets its end.
