It looks like Crunchyroll is announcing a bunch of new anime series heading to the anime streaming platform in 2023. With the news coming all the way from Brazil to boot.

Crunchyroll Live from Brasil!

"My Clueless First Friend" horizontal key art.
Seems like this is one of the more noticeable anime Crunchyroll has incoming.

Coming to us straight from their Crunchyroll: As Novidades da Plataforma panel at Comic Con Experience (CCXP) 2022 in São Paulo, Brazil; Crunchyroll is delivering to us a bunch of new anime titles inbound for 2023. These new anime series cover a pretty wide list of genres. We have sci-fi disguised as fantasy, an isekai fantasy that doesn’t star a Kirito clone getting a harem, a trio of fantasy anime (with one of them being an old-fashioned sword and sorcery story), a pair of new romantic comedies, and even a bloody crime drama for variety’s sake. You can check out the full list of new anime below:

New Crunchyroll Anime for 2023 from CCXP 2022

BOFURI: I Don’t Want to Get Hurt, so I’ll Max Out My Defense. Season 2 (Silver Link)

"BOFURI: I Don't Want to Get Hurt, so I'll Max Out My Defense. Season 2" Japanese key art.
Nice to see that SAO Done Right is getting a season 2.

The best offense is a great defense, and for VRMMO gamer Kaede Honjo, her defense is the best. Under her alias Maple, she and her guild journey through NewWorld Online gaining friends and foes through new battle-filled quests. All those skill points, new defensive techniques, and no pain—Maple can’t be stopped!

Release Date: January 2023

Really, this anime is basically an easygoing One-Punch Man, but if it took place in SAO.

The Reason Why Raeliana Ended Up At The Duke’s Mansion (Typhoon Graphics)

"The Reason Why Raeliana Ended Up At The Duke’s Mansion" Japanese key art.
Something about this screams “Shojo anime”.

After a mysterious death, Park Eunha enters the world of a novel. She is revived as a minor character, Raeliana McMillan, who is to be poisoned to death by her own betrothed. In order to break up with her dangerous fiancé, she offers a surreptitious deal to the male protagonist of the novel, Noah Wynknight, but winds up romantically with other men that are not part of the plan. Noah Wynknight of inescapable but suspicious charm; honest Justin Shamal who loves only one person; or Adam Taylor for whom you have a soft spot for no reason whenever you see him. Will Raeliana successfully get out of this crisis and create a new ending for herself? Who will be the one that will join Raeliana in her new ending?

Release Date: April 2023

And now this trailer is giving me Black Butler vibes, but if it was an isekai anime.

Chillin’ in My 30s after Getting Fired from the Demon King’s Army (Encourage Films)

"Chillin' in My 30s after Getting Fired from the Demon King's Army" Japanese key art.
Man, talk about an early retirement there.

Release Date: January 2023

It looks like your typical fantasy harem anime, but it also doesn’t? It’s hard to pin down the target audience here.

My Home Hero (Tezuka Productions)

"My Home Hero" NA key art.
I’m getting distinct Black Lagoon vibes from this anime.

The series follows Tetsuo Tosu, a middle-aged salaryman who becomes embroiled in the criminal underworld after he confronts and accidentally kills his college-age daughter’s abusive gangster boyfriend. Backed into a corner, Tetsuo will use any means at his disposal to protect his family.

Release Date: April 2023

Huh, so a cross between Black Lagoon and Breaking Bad? This could be a hidden gem of an anime.

Sorcerous Stabber Orphen -Chaos in Urbanrama- (Studio DEEN)

"Sorcerous Stabber Orphen -Chaos in Urbanrama-" Japanese key art.
Huh, how come Orphen gets such a small key art compared to everyone else?

Release Date: January 2023

I wonder if anyone still remembers Sorcerous Stabber Orphen all the way back from the 90’s?

A Galaxy Next Door (Asahi Production)

"A Galaxy Next Door" Japanese key art.
I do love a good romcom anime.

Ever since their father died, Ichirou Kuga has struggled to support his two younger siblings on nothing but a small inheritance and his passion for drawing manga. But it’s becoming harder to keep up with his growing responsibilities and deadlines, especially after his last two assistants quit to follow their dreams. Just as he’s nearing his breaking point, the beautiful and scarily competent Shiori Goshiki applies to become his new assistant. But there’s something almost otherworldly about Goshiki, and soon Kuga finds his reality turned upside down when she suddenly declares them engaged to marry!

Release Date: April 2023

Ohh, this is from the mangaka of Sweetness and Lightning. Definitely checking this anime out.

The Fire Hunter (Signal.MD)

"The Fire Hunter" Japanese key art.
A proper high fantasy anime now? This looks fun, especially with the doggy in it.

Outside the magical barriers lies a world overrun by fiery beasts known as Flame Demons, and the only ones who can protect humanity are the Fire Hunters. In the dark woods where the beasts roam is where Toko, a young villager, is rescued from attack by one of these skilled trackers, Koshi. But their meeting was no accident, and a new destiny begins.

Release Date: January 2023

You’ve definitely wowed me with the premise of this anime. It almost sounds like the plot of a Tales game.

My Clueless First Friend (Studio Signpost)

"My Clueless First Friend" NA key art.
Now this looks like an adorable romcom anime.

Release Date: 2023

Definitely looks like a wholesomely adorable romcom anime.
