The field is set. Sixty-four anime—a full tourney and the most we’ve ever had—are ready to go head to head. AniMarch Madness 2022 almost ready to begin!
On February 28th, we begin our voter-determined tournament where we annually select the top anime in all the land! Voting begins on Monday here on the blog and through our various social media platforms: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Discord.
Entrants were chosen based on past performance and by strength within their region. Unlike NCAA March Madness, where teams are selected and then bracketed into regions, we look at the best performing anime within a topical region and slot them in. Our four regions are Popular / Shounen, Critical Darlings, 2021 Anime, and Comedy / Romance Anime. As you can imagine, the 64-anime field is absolutely packed with high-profile series.
None may be more popular right now than last year’s winner, Attack on Titan. Eren and company were the first series to dethrone four-time winner, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, and could very well win again based on their currently airing season. But there are a ton of other beloved anime in the running, and your vote certainly counts!
So take a look at the bracket below, see if your favorites made it in, get excited, and come back to this site and our social media platforms on February 28th.
Let the madness begin!
