Anime NYC is currently taking place, and with one of the biggest anime events of the year focusing on franchises including the likes of Attack on Titan, Trigun Stampede, and many others, Crunchyroll has gotten in on the action by revealing a fresh slate of anime that will be hitting the streaming service. Revealed during Crunchyroll's Industry Panel, the television series will see newcomers, and returning franchises, making their way to the platform as the anime streaming wars continue to gain ground worldwide.
Crunchyroll has long been a premiere spot for anime when it comes to streaming services, and with the medium continuing to gain popularity thanks to the internet, the platform is in a good spot when it comes to its competition. Other streaming services such as Netflix, HBO Max, HDive, and Disney+ are all throwing their hats into the ring and regardless of whether anyone comes out on top, it is a great time to be a fan of anime regardless of which streaming services one subscribes to.
While the fall anime season has brought back some movers and shakers such as My Hero Academia, Mob Psycho 100, Mobile Suit Gundam, and more, next year's winter anime season is looking to overtake it with some big comebacks as well as Vinland Saga, Demon Slayer, and others are creating a crowded environment.
See below for the big announcements that were revealed by Crunchyroll during Anime NYC:
