Crunchyroll Anime
Just curious: how is this related to summer?

Crunchyroll has just announced their slate of anime releases for Summer 2021 on June 22, 2021. Most of what they’ve got for you this summer consists of fantasy anime. It seems fantasy is a popular genre right now. There are a few sci-fi and slice of life anime in this lineup. But for the most part, it’s fantasy all the way. Even there though, you have some subgenres within that genre. You got your standard isekai fantasy, but you’ve also got sword and sorcery shows too.

Now without further ado, here’s Crunchyroll’s lineup for Summer 2021:
