Crunchyroll seems determined to continue to compete with Funimation. At least, judging from the sheer amount of anime they’re releasing this spring.

Crunchyroll spring 2021 anime lineup.
Even Crunchyroll-chan is dressed up for the occasion.

With 25 different anime series to choose from, Crunchyroll is definitely making sure that there’s something for everyone, regardless of whether they’re free subscribers or premium. True, most of the titles are fantasy. However, even within that genre, there’s a bunch of different subgenres to choose from. From isekai, to traditional fantasy, to supernatural action, to some anime that defy description. There are also quite a bit slice of life and romance shows to relax with. Historical fiction is also pretty popular too. That said, let’s dive into them:
