New year new anime more fun!!! In this post, we are going to cover some of the most thrilling, adventure-filled, sensational, unique graphics and storyline anime. In this, we will look at the must-watch new anime of January 2023. In which some will make their debut or will have their sequel/prequel season. So, without any delay let’s dive into the list of anime released in January 2023.
Since it wasn’t an easy task to have all the anime in a single post so will be splitting it into different parts, so here is part-1.
One of the og, I would say made its return to the anime in January 2023, the trigon stampede originally debuted as a manga in the year 1995 to 1997 in the Shonen magazine. It was created and illustrated by Yaushiro Nightow. The name Trigun consisted of only 2 volumes. Later it was renewed in the year 1997 to 2007 under the name “Trigun Maximum” which had 14 volumes. In the year 2010, it had a movie name “ Trigun: Badland Rumble”.
Anime had its debut in 1998 which ran for 26 episodes and was animated by Studio Madhouse. Later this year it was again rebooted by the studio Orange. Its first episode came on 7 January 2023.
The plot revolves around an aspiring bounty hunter “Vash the stampede” who fights other bounty hunters to get his bounty. In the process, he gets the bounty of 60$$ billion double dollars. He got his nickname the “humanoid typhoon”.
Vash, the protagonist of this series is set to find his twin brother “Million Knives”. He never kills people, instead, he tries to find his opponents’ stories throughout the series.
The series is based on the 32nd century where the people of earth have taken shelter on the other planets, will give you the vibe of the “dune” or “mad max” or “cowboy bebop”. The main reason is that Yaushiro Nightow is a fan of western sci-fi movies which he has shown through his work in the stampede.
It’s a great series based on themes of sci-fi, space exploration, post-apocalyptic world.

Tomo-chan is a girl:-
In Japanese, it is Tomo-chan wa Onnanoko! the manga was written and illustrated by Fumita Yanagida.
Tomo-chan made its debut as a web novel and won the next manga award in 2016. The manga ran from April 2015 to July 2019. Its anime adaption made its debut in Jan 2023. The anime was animated by the Lay Dance and got popular as its debut.
The plot revolves around a girl and a boy who are childhood friends. The boy’s name is Aizawa and the girl is Tomo. But since tomo always had a Tomboy personality, Aizawa didn’t give her attention as a girl. When they grow up Tomo-chan started having a love interest in Aizawa. so, the anime is all about her trying to make Aizawa fall in for her and see her as a girl rather than a boy.
It is a great slice-of-life anime and a cute love story that’s why it’s ranking at the top in the winter anime 2023 list.

Do not mistake it as a Tokyo revenger. The Revenger is a completely different anime and nope I haven’t typo it ?. The new revenger manga debuted in 2023.
The manga was created by Ryusei Yamada. It was serialized in Shonen Jump and the anime is being produced by Nitro Plus and Shochinu, animated by Aijiado animation company.
Revenger is a group of five characters who are hitmen and live under a hideout which is a shop and its name is “Ribenjiya”. The theme of revenger is set in feudal Japan in samurai style it will give you the vibes of the Bleach characters as their style was also like sword and gun.
The storyline is unique but the theme is somewhat similar to the all-previous samurai-based anime.

If you love watching spy x family, then you will love daddy buddies. It’s an original anime which has made its debut in January 2023.
It was animated by P. A works and was produced by Aniplex and Nitro Plus (also produced Revengers). It is an original anime which means it doesn’t have any manga background or manhwa or Donghua or comics or web novel. I think this much is enough to describe that it is original?.
The plot revolves around three characters Kazuki Kurusu, Rei Suwa, and Miri. Kazuki and Kurumi are two best friends who have been living under the same roof and they both are hitmen. On Christmas eve Miri was on street to find her father, who happens to be their target, she meets Kazuki and Rei and they take her in to take good care of her. The Miri thinks of Kazuki as her biological father.
The anime kinda gives the same vibes as the spy x family, it’s a good slice-of-life anime as we can call it a hidden gem. No doubt it’s on the top list of currently streaming anime in the world.
