10. KONOSUBA -An Explosion on This Wonderful World!

Top 10 Best Upcoming Spring Anime of 2023
Number of Episodes12 Episodes
GenresComedy, Fantasy

“KONOSUBA -An Explosion on This Wonderful World!” is the Konosuba franchise’s prequel series centered around Megumin, the wizard of Kazuma’s team.

This series turned out to be pretty good, considering it featured only one main character from the original franchise. The series tells the story of Megumin. It was mostly a slow-paced anime season focusing on Megumin’s early life. Clearly crafted for the dedicated Konosuba fans, its high rating speaks volumes about its appeal!

Synopsis: “KONOSUBA -An Explosion on This Wonderful World!” takes place a long time before the main events of Konosuba, when Megumin becomes a wizard and master of Explosion Magic in Crimson Village.

Every day, Megumin tries to obtain this magic, which is considered useless by most people because it renders its user vulnerable after using it. Together with her friends, sister, and her little pet cat Chumosuke, where will these chains of events lead Megumin to?

9. My Love Story With Yamada-kun at Lv999

Number of Episodes13 Episodes
GenresRomance, Comedy

“My Love Story with Yamada-kun at Lv999” was an excellent rom-com series aired this Spring. It followed a slow yet excellent pacing that invested its viewers into the main couple’s chemistry.

The pacing seemed to get fast as the episodes went by, which I am not complaining about, but this seemed a little bit rushed as to how the main protagonists fell in love with the female protagonist. Other than that, this was a good rom-com!

Synopsis: “My Love Story with Yamada-kun at Lv999” tells the story of Akane, who just got dumped by her boyfriend because he liked some other girl in a game they played named “Forest of Savior.” After this, she goes to an event of this game where she meets with Yamada.

As soon as this fated meeting happens, Akane’s old boyfriend seems to come there with her new girlfriend. Akane pays Yamada to act like her boyfriend, and things take a good turn, but what Akane is feeling for Yamada is something special!
