Funimation Announces Reveals Winter 2022 Anime Lineup’s First Additions


Funimation has announced the first additions to their anime lineup for the Winter 2022 anime season! The final episodes of the Fall 2021 anime schedule are beginning to air, and that means that the schedule is now clearing up for the next wave of new releases coming next year. 2022 has quite a lot to live up to as 2021 was a major bounce back from the lack of releases during 2020. This all started with a highly competitive Winter 2021 slate, and thus all eyes are now on the Winter 2022 slate in the hopes that these new releases can hit even harder.

Giving fans a first look at what to expect in the Winter 2022 anime schedule, Funimation has revealed the first additions to their anime line up that will start joining the FunimationNOW streaming service beginning this January. This includes the highly anticipated returns of massive franchises such as Attack on Titan (which is returning for the second part of its fourth and final season), and some promising new series such as She Professed Herself Pupil of the Wise Man, My Dress-Up Darling, Tribe Nine, and more! The full breakdown of Funimation’s current Winter 2022 anime lineup is as such:
