Crunchyroll Spring 2024 Lineup key visual.
Even kitties want to watch some anime.

But that’s enough out of me for now. For the current full list of anime series inbound to Crunchyroll for April 2024 (separated by date), check it out below:

April 1

Spice and Wolf: merchant meets the wise wolf (Passione)

Spice and Wolf: merchant meets the wise wolf NA key visual.
I never thought this anime would get a reboot.

Lawrence is a traveling merchant selling various goods from a horse-drawn cart. One day, he arrives at a village and meets a beautiful girl with the ears and tail of an animal! Her name is Holo the Wisewolf and she brings bountiful harvests. She wishes to return to her homeland, and Lawrence offers to take her. Now, the once-lonely merchant and the once-lonely wisewolf begin their journey north.

  • Dubs include: English, French, and German
Maybe Passione will even finish the anime this time?

Gods’ Games We Play (LIDENFILMS)

Gods' Games We Play NA key visual.
Is this…a gambling anime?

In a world of idle gods, humans are forced into brain challenges with them. With three defeats, gods lose their right to challenge, while 10 victories spell human triumph. Fay, determined to achieve the impossible, enters the ultimate test of wits against the gods. Will he defy divinity or is he just another loss in the making?

  • Dubs include: English, Latin American Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, French, and German
This almost looks like an isekai anime, but it isn’t.

Re:Monster (Studio DEEN)

Re:Monster NA key visual.
Ah, now this an actual isekai anime.

After meeting an untimely death, Tomokui Kanata is reincarnated as a lowly goblin, but he’s worked up a monstrous appetite. Thanks to his new ability that allows him to grow stronger the more he feeds, his feeble status quickly changes, and he rises to become the goblin leader. With a mix of his past memories, new body, and strong stomach, he’s taking a bite out of this new fantastical world!

  • Dubs include: English, Latin American Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, French, and German
At least this is one of the more interesting isekai anime where the reincarnation is into a nonhuman being.

The Banished Former Hero Lives as He Pleases (Studio DEEN and Marvy Jack)

The Banished Former Hero Lives as He Pleases NA key visual.
Ah, looks like yet another fantasy harem anime.

“I can finally go search for the peaceful life I’ve been looking forward to since my past life.” Allen, a boy called a failure because he was not blessed with a “Gift” from god, is actually a former hero who still has the memories and powers of his past life?! Using his banishment from his family’s duchy as an excuse, Allen is about to start a carefree journey to do whatever he wants when he comes across an attempt on the life of his ex-fiancée…?! The former hero wants to live a relaxing life this time around, but the heroic fantasy life he never wanted is about to begin!

Honestly, I don’t know how much more bog-standard you can get with this anime.

Train to the End of the World (EMT Squared)

Train to the End of the World Japanese key visual.
Is…is this a postapocalyptic anime?

A group of girls hop onto an abandoned train to explore the outside world with strange anomalies.

Okay, I can’t even begin to tell what this anime is about, and that has piqued my interest.

I Was Reincarnated as the 7th Prince So I Can Take My Time Perfecting My Magical Ability (Tsumugi Akita Animation Lab)

I Was Reincarnated as the 7th Prince So I Can Take My Time Perfecting My Magical Ability NA key visual.
That is one of the most stereotypically long titles I’ve seen in any recent anime.

The qualities valued most in the study of magic are bloodline, aptitude, and effort. There was one sorcerer who, despite his deep love for magic, was born a commoner and thus lacked the bloodline and aptitude for it. As he died an unnatural death, he wished he had studied magic more while he had the chance. Then, he was reincarnated as Lloyd, the seventh prince of the Kingdom of Saloum and one blessed with a strong magical bloodline. Reborn with all his memories intact, along with the perfect bloodline and immense talent, he was determined to enjoy his new life, using his extraordinary magical abilities to master the study of magic that was beyond his reach in his previous life!

  • Dubs include: English, French, and German
With a seemingly stereotypical anime story to boot.

Saint Seiya: Knights of the Zodiac – Battle for Sanctuary Part 2 (Toei Animation) ~ New to Calendar – Added on 3/13

Saint Seiya: Knights of the Zodiac - Battle for Sanctuary Part 2 NA key visual.
A CG anime with shojo animation?

The final hour is approaching! There are only five hours left until the arrow of the God Killer pierces Athena’s heart. Only the Pope, who sits atop the sanctuary, can save Athena. However, in order for Seiya and the other four Bronze Saints to reach the Pope’s Chamber, they must break through the Twelve Palaces protected by the Golden Saints. There are five more palaces waiting for them to reach the Pope’s Chamber. Can Seiya and his team defeat the powerful enemies that stand in their way and reach the Pope’s Chamber, where the shocking truth is hidden?

Like a Greek hero story interpreted by anime.

April 3

BARTENDER Glass of God (Liber)

BARTENDER Glass of God NA key art.
Ah, looks like a refreshing anime almost ready to serve.

At Eden Hall, each glass has a story. A quiet bar lies tucked away in the streets of Tokyo, and it seems only the most desperate souls burdened by their own troubles manage to find its doors. But after a glass of God poured by the brilliant bartender Ryu, they leave renewed. Ryu has a gift—he knows how to soothe the soul with the perfect drink. Who will he meet next?

However, that is not the origin of the word “bartender”.

April 4

WIND BREAKER (CloverWorks)

WIND BREAKER NA key visual.
Sorry, but my mind went to somewhere hilarious when I saw the title of this anime.

Where the average scores are the lowest, but the fights are the strongest. Furin High School is renowned as a super school of delinquents. Haruka Sakura, a first-year student, came from outside the city to fight to the top. However, Furin High School has become a group that protects the town called the “Chime of the Wind Breaker” – Bofurin. The heroic legend of high school delinquent Sakura begins here!

  • Dubs include: English, Latin American Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, French, and German
This seems like a horribly dysfunctional high school, even for an anime.

Laid-Back Camp Season 3 (8bit)

Laid-Back Camp Season 3 Japanese key visual.
I see two dogs in this anime. This is already a must-watch for me.

Nadeshiko, a high school student who had moved from Shizuoka to Yamanashi, decides to see the famous, 1000 yen-bill-featured Mount Fuji. Even though she manages to bike all the way to Motosu, she’s forced to turn back because of worsening weather. Unable to set her eyes on her goal, she faints partway to her destination. When she wakes up, it’s night, in a place she’s never been before, with no way of knowing how to get home. Nadeshiko is saved when she encounters Rin, a girl who is out camping by herself. This outdoorsy girls story begins with this first encounter between Nadeshiko and Rin.

  • Dubs include: English, Latin American Spanish, and Brazilian Portuguese
Iyashikei anime need to be as pretty as this one.

A Condition Called Love (East Fish Studio)

A Condition Called Love NA key visual.
The title of this anime reminds me of that “Dr. Beat” song.

High school freshman Hotaru Hinase has a vibrant life full of family and friendship, but not much luck in romance. That all changes when she makes a warm gesture to her handsome and heartbroken classmate, Hananoi, leading to him asking her out and her becoming flustered. Witness a girl who grapples with the enigma of love and a boy who is heavy-handed with it.

  • Dubs include: English, Latin American Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, and French
But with a much more relaxing tone than that song.

An Archdemon’s Dilemma: How to Love Your Elf Bride (Brain’s Base)

An Archdemon's Dilemma: How to Love Your Elf Bride NA key visual.
Is this anime a metaphor for an arranged marriage?

Zagan might be the most feared evil sorcerer, but when it comes to social interactions, he’s the most inept. All those days studying the dark arts won’t help him when he falls in love at first sight with Nephelia, the beautiful elven slave, and spends his entire fortune to purchase her. With no clue how to talk to each other, the awkward arrangement for a bumbling sorcerer and timid elf begins.

  • Dubs include: English
And a strangely adorable anime about an arranged marriage too.

April 5

The Irregular at Magic High School Season 3 (8bit)

The Irregular at Magic High School Season 3 NA key visual.
Well, this anime certainly looks like it’s taking a dramatic turn.

After a year full of turbulence, Tatsuya and Miyuki’s lives were slowly changing as they became second year students. They are now living together with Minami Sakurai, who was sent to them by the Yotsuba Family, and Tatsuya has transferred into the newly established Department of Magical Engineering. Though he planned to live a peaceful school life with Miyuki by his side, the world would of course not allow such a thing… And once again, the curtain opens to a series of turbulent days.

And I see the brother-sister pairing is still very real in this anime.

Astro Note (Telecom Animation Film)

Astro Note NA key visual.
Wait, is that a poodle…biting that guy’s head? This certainly looks like a quirky anime.

Takumi, a gifted chef, just landed a new job. He works at the Astro Manor apartment building that offers breakfast, and there he encounters the beautiful landlady—Mira. It’s love at first sight, and he hopes to charm her, but the quirky tenants and bizarre phenomena don’t make it easy. He even learns by pure chance that Mira is secretly an alien! Will their love survive these unearthly oddities?

A quirky anime that’s also a romcom, with an emphasis on the com.


THE iDOLM@STER SHINY COLORS Japanese key visual.
This is an anime where the girls just want to sing.

The producer of the 283 Production group brings together a whole new cast of idols to the stage!

And a pretty high quality GCI anime to boot.


NIJIYON ANIMATION 2 Japanese key visual.
I’m sensing some Lucky Star influence in this anime.

The spinoff of Nijigasaki High School Idol Club and the 13 members of the high school idol club are back. Follow the cute girls’ lives in this cute, short slice of life drama.

This is just the chibi version of the previous anime.

April 7

Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation Season 2 Cour 2 (Studio Bind)

Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation Season 2 Cour 2 NA key visual.
The isekai anime that follows the main character’s entire life.

When a 34-year-old underachiever gets run over by a truck, his story doesn’t end there. Reincarnated in a new world as an infant, Rudy will seize every opportunity to live the life he’s always wanted. Armed with new friends, some freshly acquired magical abilities, and the courage to do the things he’s always dreamed of, he’s embarking on an epic adventure—with all of his past experience intact!

  • Dubs include: English, Latin American Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, French, German, Italian, and Castilian Spanish
And when I say his entire life, I mean it.

Grandpa and Grandma Turn Young Again (Gekko)

Grandpa and Grandma Turn Young Again Japanese key visual.
Well, this is certainly a unique premise for an anime.

This lovely elderly couple just regained their youth, determined to live it to the fullest.

Basically: this is an anime about a couple with a new lease on life.

The Duke of Death and His Maid Season 3 (J.C.STAFF)

The Duke of Death and His Maid Season 3 Japanese key visual.
This is if you want your romcom to have some supernatural hijinks to it.

“I want to touch you, but I can’t…” The conclusion to the saddest love story in the world. The young Duke was cursed by a witch when he was young, so that everything he touches dies. The curse causes everyone around him to shun him, and now he spends his days alone in a secluded mansion in the woods. He has a maid named Alice, but she’s the biggest source of his worries. Will he finally be able to break the curse?

  • Dubs include: English, Latin American Spanish, and Brazilian Portuguese
With some stylish animation to finish off this love story anime to boot.

As a Reincarnated Aristocrat, I’ll Use My Appraisal Skill to Rise in the World (Studio Mother)

As a Reincarnated Aristocrat, I’ll Use My Appraisal Skill to Rise in the World NA key visual.
Looks another typical isekai anime…at first.

In a land where nobles usually flex their swords, Ars Louvent flexes his Appraisal Skill! Join this not-so-brawny noble scion as he turns his small domain into a force to be reckoned with, all while navigating through a world of magical prowess. Spoiler alert: Ars’ Appraisal Skill is mightier than any sword, and his journey is as twisty as a wyvern in a maze.

  • Dubs include: German
First of all, it’s an anime protagonist whose power doesn’t directly make him stronger.

Vampire Dormitory (Studio Blanc)

Vampire Dormitory NA key visual.
I’m sensing a hint of Vampire Knight in this anime.

After Mito loses her parents and is fired from her job, she must fend for herself on the streets disguised as a boy. She comes across a stranger named Ruka and learns his dark secret—he’s a vampire! Ruka invites Mito, still in disguise, to live in an all-boys dorm. Mito exchanges her blood for a place to stay, but a budding romance and her true identity threaten all that hangs in the balance.

  • Dubs include: English
With a hint of Ouran High School Host Club, but played for drama.

April 8

Tadaima, Okaeri (Studio DEEN)

Tadaima, Okaeri NA key visual.
Ooh, a romance anime about a LGBTQ+ couple this time.

After marrying his beloved husband, Hiromu Fujiyoshi, Masaki Fujiyoshi becomes a househusband. They were blessed with a son named Hikari, who is almost two, and moved to the suburbs. Because they married even though they’re in completely different classes, they face societal prejudices, and Masaki is unable to be confident with himself. While he’s overwhelmed by anxiety and sadness at times, he becomes stronger little by little with support from Hiromu and Hikari. They gradually become more of a family than they were yesterday. Welcome to the happy home of the Fujiyoshis that’s filled with kindness.

And a very fluffy anime to boot.

Chillin’ in Another World with Level 2 Super Cheat Powers (J.C. STAFF)

Chillin' in Another World with Level 2 Super Cheat Powers NA key visual.
And now back to our regularly scheduled stereotypical isekai anime.

The Magical Kingdom of Klyrode summons hundreds of heroes from other worlds every year to fight in their war against the Dark One and his army of powerful demons. Banaza is one of those heroes, summoned from the Royal Capital Paluma, but something’s not right—Banaza is only an average merchant. He has no magic, no fighting ability, and his stats are abysmal. Worse, a mishap leaves him unable to return home! Rejected as a hero and stranded in another world, abandoned to the far reaches of the kingdom by a cruel king who just wants him gone, Banaza’s fate looks pretty bleak. But what will happen once the failed hero candidate finds himself with super cheat powers once he hits level two?

  • Dubs include: English, Brazilian Portuguese, French, and German
Wait, isn’t the plot just Rising of the Shield Hero again?

April 9

Oblivion Battery (MAPPA)

Oblivion Battery Japanese key visual.
Huh, a baseball anime this time?

Iron-armed pitcher, Haruka Kiyomine, and the shrewd catcher, Kei Kaname, AKA the “Skilled General,” were considered to be an unrivaled, monstrous battery duo in the middle-school baseball world. They were both scouted by various powerhouse high schools across the nation, but somehow, they both ended up at Tokyo Municipal Kotesashi High School, which wasn’t known for baseball at all. On top of that, other star players who had lost to that duo in the past and completely strayed from baseball coincidentally also enrolled at that school, and… Their meeting sets everything into motion once again. Their high school baseball story begins now!

I swear, there’s some BL mixed into this anime too.

April 10

KONOSUBA -God’s Blessing on This Wonderful World! 3 (Drive)

KONOSUBA -God's Blessing on This Wonderful World! 3 NA key visual.
Ah, the most dysfunctional party in anime history is back.

The dysfunctional party is back, but they may be short a member soon ’cause Kazuma is over it. Disillusioned with adventure, he wants to become a monk, but Aqua, Megumin, and Darkness call bull. However, the career dispute gets put on hold when a princess requests to hear all about their tales. Will the taste of fame at the royal castle keep them together or will this mark their farewell tour?

  • Dubs include: English, Latin American Spanish, and Brazilian Portuguese
Honestly one of the best comedy isekai anime in history.

Viral Hit (Okuruto Noboru)

Okay, now that’s a weirdly creepy key visual for an anime.

Like and subscribe to NewTube’s latest streaming sensation, Hobin Yu! Tired of bullies, the scrawny high schooler is fighting back and streaming it. With tips from a mysterious online channel, he’s cashing in and knocking out bullies. He’s got the internet going crazy, but can Hobin keep it up or will he get crushed by his next match?

  • Dubs include: English, French, and German
Honestly, this anime seems more like the result of a failing anti-bullying system to me.

The Many Sides of Voice Actor Radio (CONNECT)

The Many Sides of Voice Actor Radio Japanese key visual.
For some reason, this anime reminds me of that one Ado song “All Night Radio”.

Yuhi Yugure and Yasumi Utatane, high school classmates and co-hosts of a weekly radio program, paint a picture-perfect friendship for their listeners. Yet, in reality, they couldn’t be more different. Their off-air dynamic is a whirlwind of chaos and insults. As their tumultuous relationship unfolds, they navigate the turbulent waters of friendship and rivalry in the cutthroat realm of showbiz.

But with a lot more rivalry between the hosts.

April 12

As everyone processes this news, a deadly spectre from his past schemes to obliterate him—someone closer than he realizes.

  • Dubs include: French
With one of the most ridiculously long titles in anime history too.

Shadowverse Flame: Arc-hen (ZEXCS)

Shadowverse Flame: Arc-hen Japanese key visual.
I’m getting Digimon vibes from this anime.

At Shadowverse Battle College, they train students to be professional Shadowverse players. When novice player Light Tenryu transfers in, he quickly realizes his chosen club, Seventh Flame, may already have the cards stacked against them—they need three more members to compete. After that, they must face off against players like the fearsome Haruma Hazeura, First Reaper’s leader. All in, Light?

I swear, this is like something in between Yu-Gi-Oh! and Digimon.

April 13

Kaiju No. 8 (Production I.G)

Kaiju No. 8 NA key visual.
Ah, now this is an anime adaptation I’ve been waiting a while to watch.

In a world plagued by creatures known as Kaiju, Kafka Hibino aspired to enlist in The Defense Force. He makes a promise to enlist with his childhood friend, Mina Ashiro. Soon, life takes them in separate ways. While employed cleaning up after Kaiju battles, Kafka meets Reno Ichikawa. Reno’s determination to join The Defense Force reawakens Kafka’s promise to join Mina and protect humanity.

I love how this anime is basically Godzilla but from the perspective of the military that’s fighting them.

Black Butler -Public School Arc- (CloverWorks)

So our favorite Victorian dark fantasy BL anime continues!

Amidst Britain’s elite, Weston College defies government oversight.

With his loyal demon butler, Sebastian, Ciel must navigate treacherous school politics and infiltrate Weston’s model prefects, the P4, if he is to unravel the mysteries that shroud this institution.

In the coal mining town crowded with small-scale miners, known as the “Hakoniwa”, the story follows a girl named Kagari who runs a map shop, and her childhood friend Yuya, who dreams of breaking free from the “Hakoniwa” and the ever-changing labyrinth-like town.
