The Spring Anime Season of 2023 is almost over! Summer is just around the corner, and you now have a lot of free time for a few months until it’s time to go back to school—or whatever other situation that is not of any concern until Autumn. In the meantime, there’s some Dr. Stone, Demon Slayer, and Gundam to catch up to!
I normally try to post these right when the new anime season previews are released for the season, but that season is almost over when I remember it! In an attempt to return to blogging normalcy, now is a good time to post these new anime releases right at the end of the season, especially for those who like anime binge-watching. No worries, I’m one of those, too!
In this post, I will share a mix of currently airing anime fan favorites, as well as new must-watch anime for those looking for new anime recommendations. With everything that has aired this past season being either almost or completely over, here are the eagerly anticipated new shows most talked about, ranging from action-packed adventures to heartwarming dramas!
