The Spring 2024 anime season is upon us, and Crunchyroll knows that very well. After all, they are one of the biggest anime streaming platforms in the world. They are streaming the vast majority of the anime series in that season, so it’s only natural that they would have significant interest in it. Thus, it also explains why they would be interested in podcasts of the same. Especially when Crunchyroll themselves are doing a podcast of the Spring 2024 season. Don’t believe me? Then why not check out not only Crunchyroll’s own podcast but five others as well? Starting with:

1. The Anime Effect By Crunchyroll

Let’s see if the official anime podcast is any good.

A 60-minute weekly roundtable news and discussion podcast with Crunchyroll hosts and special guests that spotlight anime‘s influence in the broader cultural landscape. The show provides a gateway for the anime curious to enter the wide world of the medium. It shows that anime is already a part of their lives, even if they haven’t realized it.

The show is focused on the culture and influence of anime. While it will cover news, its focus is on how that news relates to the larger cultural impact of anime. The Anime Effect aims to be a show enjoyable to both dedicated anime fans and casual viewers.

Join David and Jordan on each episode of Shonen Flop as they discuss a different manga series that couldn’t quite make it. Was it a hidden gem cut down in its prime? Or was it really, truly, a flop?
