The spring anime season has just begun and it’s by far the most jam packed we have seen in awhile. Whether it is returning favorites or new shows, there is something for everyone in the spring anime season. So lets take a look at the newest shows coming to Crunchyroll and Funimation this spring. Plus our top picks from each distributor for the spring anime season.
Our Top Spring Picks
MIX – (Crunchyroll and Funimation Sub/Dub)
A new generation steps up to the plate in a moving sequel to the 1985 baseball manga, Touch. Stepbrothers Touma and Suichirou are ace players on Meisei High School’s baseball team, and thanks to them, the team may finally have a chance at returning to nationals. But little by little, a tragic legacy unfolds as the stepbrothers follow in their fathers’ footsteps.
If you are into sports anime, or just enjoy a good story about a pair of brothers trying to make a name for themselves, MIX is a fun series with heart for the spring anime season.
Attack On Titan Season 3 Part 2 (Crunchyroll Sub and Funimation Sub/Dub)
The battle to retake Wall Maria begins now! With Eren’s new hardening ability, the Scouts are confident they can seal the wall and take back Shiganshina District. If they succeed, Eren can finally unlock the secrets of the basement—and the world. But danger lies in wait as Reiner, Bertholdt, and the Beast Titan have plans of their own. Could this be humanity’s final battle for survival?
Some didn’t like the political first half of season 3, but it revealed a lot of much needed back story and context for what is about to unfold in part 2 of season 3. Attack on Titan never lets you down when it comes to twists.
Fairy Tail Final Season (Crunchyroll Sub and Funimation Sub/Dub)
Natsu, Lucy, and Happy return in the final season of Fairy Tail! They’ve faced some seriously tough challenges but there’s still more to do. Between reforming Fairy Tail and looking for their missing guild master, Makarov, they’ll also have to face the enemy kingdom of Alvarez. Up against new wizards and formidable new powers, are they ready for their greatest adventure yet?
It’s going to be hard to let Fairy Tail go when it ends. However, so far this final season has been the best season in a long time. I am excited the reveal about Zeref and Natsu is starting to become more common knowledge and see how all of it shakes out.
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba (Crunchyroll Sub and Funimation Sub)
It is the Taisho Period in Japan. Tanjiro, a kindhearted boy who sells charcoal for a living, finds his family slaughtered by a demon. To make matters worse, his younger sister Nezuko, the sole survivor, has been transformed into a demon herself. Though devastated by this grim reality, Tanjiro resolves to become a “demon slayer” so that he can turn his sister back into a human, and kill the demon that massacred his family.
Bungo Stray Dogs 3rd Season (Crunchyroll)
The White Tiger and the Black Beast – Nakagawa Atsushi and Akutagawa Ryunosuke’s fight against Francis F. brings an end to the great war against the Guild. Life goes on as normal in Yokoyama, thanks to the continued truce between the Armed Detective Agency and the Port Mafia, who, together, saved the city from ruin. But there are still rumors of Guild stragglers and other crime organizations making their way in from abroad. Meanwhile, Dazai Osamu had premonitions of another impending disaster. Lurking in the darkness is the Fyodor D., leader of pirate organization Rats in the House of the Dead, his dreadful plans on the verge of execution.
Bungo Stray Dogs is a perfect mix of supernatural, detective and goofy that just make you love every character and story. The series has an incredibly smooth way of telling important character backstories that make you feel sorry for them even when you really want to hate them. Its a refreshing return for the spring anime season.
Fruits Basket (Crunchyroll Sub and Funimation Sub/Dub)
Tohru Honda thought her life was headed for misfortune when a family tragedy left her living in a tent. When her small home is discovered by the mysterious Soma clan, she suddenly finds herself living with Yuki, Kyo, and Shigure Soma. But she quickly learns their family has a bizarre secret of their own: when hugged by the opposite sex, they turn into the animals of the Zodiac!
Midnight occult civil servants (Crunchyroll Sub and Funimation Dub)
When Miyako Arata starts his brand-new job as a civil servant, he’s shocked to find out he’s not serving the regular public—he’s working with supernatural beings! Referred to as “Anothers”, Miyako and his team deals with the trouble they cause, unseen by the human eye. But while on his first assignment, Miyako surprises everyone with an unheard-of ability—he can understand the Anothers!
