Bandai seems determined to celebrate what they call Ani-MAY in 2023 with some new anime figures. What are these new figures, you might ask? Well, let’s find out, shall we?

Ani-MAY 2023 with Anime Figures

Bandai is proud to announce their new line of anime figures for Ani-MAY 2023. Their list of figures is actually fairly substantial, albeit only covering the most popular mainstream anime series. If you’re into less well-known anime series like The Ancient Magus’ Bride or even apparently Spy x Family, you’ll not find any figures about them here. You’ll only find figures from Dragon Ball, Bleach, One Piece, etc. here.

In fact, there’s even a distinctly non-anime title included in here for some reason. You know, despite it being for Ani-MAY. In fact, it’s not even an animated series at all. You’ll know it when you see it. Especially if you have a Netflix account or are otherwise a fan of Netflix. Still, if you have any interest in these figures, then you can check out a full list of them below (that may or may not include images of the figures in question):
