The grass is starting to grow, the trees are starting to fill out, and the days are getting longer. You know what that means: a bunch of new anime. Crunchyroll has 25 anime on the docket for this Spring, from the return of fan favorites like My Hero Academia Season 5 to new shows like I've Been Killing Slimes for 300 Years and Maxed Out My Level. Here are the anime you can look forward to hitting Crunchyroll this spring.

Things kick off this weekend with My Hero Academia Season 5 airing on Saturday, March 27. My Hero Academia continues the adventures of Deku and the rest of Class 1-A as they train to graduate from student superheroes to becoming licensed, professional superheroes. The Slime Diaries, also known as That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime is back as well.

From the the batch of new anime, a few stand out as being interesting. Joran: The Princess of Snow and Blood is set in an alternate 1931, where the Tokugawa Shogunate, dethroned in 1868 in the real world, still rules Japan, and Joran is on a quest for revenge. OddTaxi pulls us into a world of anthropomorphic characters centered on a lone taxi driver named Kotokawa and his many weird passengers, whose conversations begin to put together a mystery for Kotokawa.

Aside from My Hero Academia, most of the upcoming shows do not yet have air dates beyond simply "this spring."

Brand new anime include:

  • Don't Toy With Me, Nagatoro-san
  • Fairy Ranmaru
  • Farewell, My Dear Cramer
  • HigeHiro: After Being Rejected, I Shaved And Took In a High School Runaway
  • I've Been Killing Slimes for 300 Years and Maxed Out My Level

  • Case Closed
  • Digimon Adventure
  • Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai

For a refresher on My Hero Academia, check out our pre-Season 5 breakdown. In case you missed it, Sony acquired Crunchyroll from WarnerMedia this winter after much speculation for a hefty sum of almost $1.2 billion. We have yet to see what that will change in the long run, but in the meantime, there's a ton of anime on the way.
