NEWS: Crunchyroll’s Fall 2023 Anime Season Calendar

The air is getting cooler and the leaves are changing colors, which can only mean one thing: it’s time for the Fall anime season. Of course, some of our summer faves are still going strong like Jujutsu Kaisen. But it is time to add some new anime to our lists and hopefully find new favorites for the year.

Crunchyroll has released their list of Fall anime and it has so many good titles on it. I am looking forward to Sasaki and Miyano:Graduation, My New Boss is Goofy, and Heaven’s Official’s Blessing Season 2, which doesn’t surprise anyone. I am also interested in checking out the following anime:

  • Ron Kamonohashi’s Forbidden Deductions
  • Protocol:Rain
  • Shangri-La Frontier
  • 16bit Sensation: Another Layer

What will you be watching?
