NEWS: Crunchyroll’s Summer 2023 Anime Season Calendar

I can’t believe it is already time for the Summer 2023 anime season! Last season was packed with so much great anime, for a second I thought Summer would take it easy on us. However, nothing could be further from the truth.

As per usual, Crunchyroll has released their calendar for the season so take out your notes and make a list of what you’ll be watching. Some big titles (cough cough Jujutsu Kaisen) are missing from the list, which I assume will be announced at Anime Expo soon. I’ll be sure to update the list with any new information as it comes in.
