Romance fans were probably nervous seeing that the winter 2022 anime season was a little light on romance series to watch. Thankfully, the few that we got were quite stellar and appealed to a wide range of otaku. None of these shows are your typical anime romances with various stories of drama, love, comedy, and tantalizing excitement. Romantics out there, we want you to listen up! If you somehow missed any of these winter 2022 anime romances, then you’re missing out on some quality anime!
4. Koroshi Ai (Love of Kill)
Are you an otaku tired of the constantly copy and pasted romance stories set in some high school between average people? Then you’re going to adore Love of Kill which takes romance and blends it with high-octane action! Chateau Dankworth, an up-and-coming bounty hunter, ends up meeting a strange man who proves he’s no slouch in the dangerous game of bounty hunting. Despite trying to push this Ryang-ha Song away, Chateau can’t deny she’s intrigued by his strong assassination talents and you can guess where this leads to! Love of Kill didn’t get much attention this winter 2022 season—which is understandable as there are a lot of great anime this season—but we hope you readers will give this action-romance a chance!
3. Sasaki to Miyano (Sasaki and Miyano)
Boys love fans may not want to miss out on Sasaki and Miyano! This BL anime is actually quite approachable to those who might want to try out this genre and it has a calming romance of two young men who are quite different but pair together exceptionally well! Following the tale of a delinquent who saves a bullied young soul, Sasaki and Miyano examines what love can create when two extremes end up falling for one another. We all want that perfect person who completes us and one can find that story in this drama-filled BL called Sasaki and Miyano!
2. Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san 3 (Teasing Master Takagi-san Season 3)
The third season of Teasing Master Takagi-san will melt any cold heart formed during this winter 2022 anime season. Takagi and Nishikata are wrapping up their summer but their blossoming love life isn’t done just yet. The two are going to end up in even more comical situations but their love is about to go even further! Don’t sleep on Teasing Master Takagi-san if you missed out on the series so far, the third season is superb but there’s plenty of time to binge the first two to catch up and enjoy the simplicity of this funny romance anime.
1. Sono Bisque Doll wa Koi wo Suru (My Dress-Up Darling)
Hands down one of the most talked-about romance series of 2022—and possibly the last few years—My Dress-Up Darling made headlines in the anime community for doing things quite differently than most romance narratives. The two leads in My Dress-Up Darling, Wakana Gojou, and Marin Kitagawa find themselves intertwined when they realize that despite having some rather peculiar tastes, their hobbies work perfectly together. The drama and story in My Dress-Up Darling is so heartwarming and relatable that we doubt a single otaku will deny this was not only one of the better romance anime of winter 2022 but one of the better anime of the past few years, so far. Plus, Marin has become one of our newest waifu and deserves all of our attention for being just downright perfect.
This winter 2022 anime season didn’t have many romance anime and that was surprising but the several shows we got knocked our socks off! We really love the diversity of these various romance anime and can’t deny we also love each show equally! Which romance anime of winter 2022 appealed most to you?
