Spy x Family tops the list of most popular anime trends online

Spy x Family’s Anya and her iconic “heh” face beat One Piece’s Uta to take the top spot as the most popular anime character of 2022.


The anime adaptation of the Spy x Family was one of the most popular and talked about anime of 2022, and it’s all thanks to a pink-haired gremlin.


As reported by Anime Senpai, Spy x Family, especially Anya, was the most popular anime character on Twitter according to the “Twitter Trend Awards 2022”. It will come as no surprise to anyone, considering the amount of Anya cosplayers that have popped up since the action comedy shows aired, and who can blame them? The adorable Anya has the ability to read minds, but combined with her four-year-old lens to see and understand the world, it often translates into hilarious misunderstandings. What makes her so endearing to viewers is how she keeps everyone else and the show grounded and how clearly she loves her mother and father.

Witch From Mercury and One Piece are impressive runners-up

Coming in at number 3 is Suletta Mercury from Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch From Mercury. Suletta is the first female and queer protagonist to lead a Gundam series and has already received rave reviews. Suletta and her mother came to the Mercury orbital base after, in an attempt to destroy all the Gundams, a military attack destroys their home. Although she is shy, a little socially awkward and often has trouble getting her thoughts across, Suletta has enormous courage and will always defend those who are treated unfairly.

Gets an incredible amount of hype up until the film’s premiere, Uta fra One Piece Movie: Red is number two. The film is the highest grossing film of One Piece franchise and is the ninth highest-grossing film of all time in Japan. The film focuses on Uta, the daughter of “Red-Haired” Shanks, who has a beautiful singing voice capable of bringing people together or tearing them apart. Uta did her first One Piece anime series appearance on Christmas Day when she greeted visitors with a cheerful “Merry Christmasmahhh!” The singer also appeared in a brief cameo in the manga, as confirmed by mangaka Eiichiro Oda.

Anya became part of the Forger family because the fate of the world sort of rests on her little shoulders. Her father, Loid aka Twilight, is one of the world’s best spies and Ostania’s number one enemy. Tasked with Operation Strix, whose goal is to maintain world peace between Ostania and Westalia, Loid must find a way to get close to the chairman of the National Unity Party of Ostania, Donovan Desmond. Due to the chairman’s notorious reticence and how he only appears at school functions, Anya must become an Imperial Scholar by earning eight Stella stars. Unfortunately, that’s a tall order to place. Even if Anya managed to earn one Stella for her heroic act, it’s more than likely that she’ll earn eight Tonitrus Bolts before she ever gets her second Stella. Tatsuya Endo’s series was recently adapted into an anime produced by Wit Studio and CloverWorks, and quickly became a fan favorite, earning praise for its storytelling and comedy.

The entirety of Spy x Family‘s season 1 is available on Crunchyroll and Hulu.
