Exciting 2023 Anime Lineup

10 min readJul 8, 2023


Anime creators and mangaka wield their immense expertise to transform ordinary, monotonous activities into captivating and delightful content.

Their undeniable excellence in this artistry has won them many grateful fans worldwide. In 2023, if you’re seeking a more relaxed anime-watching experience, these series make a perfect choice.

After all, light-hearted entertainment often serves as the ultimate remedy after a long day! The slice-of-life genre blends effortlessly with other styles, typically sparking comedic or romantic outcomes. Even a few Isekai adventurers have joined this trend.

Summer and Winter Anime To Look Forward Too

Individuals who aim to watch all the anime series of Summer 2023 typically need to acquire multiple subscriptions.

Yet, certain shows will not officially be available on Western platforms, creating a technical barrier for North American fans to access every title. Now, let’s dive into the anime lineup of each popular streaming service for the exciting Summer 2023 season.

Yuri Is My Job! (Crunchyroll)

Hime Shiraki holds high aspirations in life, but her work ethic doesn’t quite match up. Despite this, she plans to use her cuteness and charisma to reach her goals.

Fortune intervenes, and Hime lands a waitress job at a local theatrical cafe, where she meets a group of intriguing and unusual individuals who open her to unexpected opportunities. Staying true to its yuri genre, this anime introduces a romantic subplot featuring Mitsuki, Hime’s initially unwilling love interest and co-worker.

Hime, used to coasting on her long-cultivated sweet façade, is not familiar with facing opposition. Yet, she rises to the challenge, determined to win Mitsuki’s heart and learning more about herself in the process. This tale of unrequited love makes its debut on April 6, included in Crunchyroll’s simulcast lineup.

Insomniacs After School (Crunchyroll)

In this enthralling seinen romance slice of life, two sleep-deprived students unexpectedly intersect within the abandoned school observatory.

Here, they find companionship, at last discovering someone with whom to share the sunrise’s beauty after yet another sleepless night. Despite his usual grumpiness, Ganta finds himself smiling around the vibrant and enthusiastic Isaki.

As their nocturnal romance rapidly develops, it entirely transforms Ganta’s world. The insomniacs begin to understand that their constant wakefulness may not always be a curse, especially when they have each other to share these twilight moments.

The Idolm@ster Cinderella Girls U149- Spring 2023

In a refreshing transformation of the timeless Cinderella tale, our leading ladies, standing at a mere height of 149 centimeters (4 ft, 11 in), refuse to let their short stature hinder their ambitions of becoming famous pop idols. Each girl adds her own unique charm to the IDOLM@STER franchise.

Even though the vast world can seem a bit daunting, these talented pre-teens are brimming with passion, providing constant inspiration as they tackle the challenging journey to idolhood.

Their official training begins on April 5. If you found the original IDOLM@STERS endearing, you’ll find these pint-sized versions of aspiring entertainers absolutely delightful, promising a treat for all!

Dark Gathering

Following a terrifying run-in with a restless spirit, the ghost-fearing psychic Keitaro Gentoga turns into a recluse to evade further spectral calamities.

However, Keitaro can’t remain isolated forever and eventually steps back into society by taking up a part-time tutoring job for child prodigy Yayoi Hozuki.

But Yayoi is more than just a scholarly genius. She’s a gifted psychic medium, relentlessly pursuing the sinister spirit responsible for her mother’s disappearance. She’s resolute about pulling Keitaro into her unnerving world teeming with grotesque supernatural phenomena.

My Clueless First Friend (Crunchyroll)

My Clueless First Friend is essentially a sweeter rendition of Kimi ni Todoke, where our protagonist, Akane Nishimura, endures ridicule and teasing due to her dark and twisty persona.

However, the arrival of a cheerful transfer student, who seems oblivious to her starkly apparent “downfalls,” provides Nishimura with her first taste of friendship. Taiyō Takada, the new student, encourages this recluse to step out of her solitude and interact with the world.

Yet, with the naïveté abundantly shared between the two, hilariously entertaining outcomes ensue. This socially awkward “shinigami” and her newly found chuunibyou friend are set to make their first appearance on April 9, available for simulcast viewing on Crunchyroll.

Dead Mount Death Play ( Crunchyroll )

Dead Mount Death Play spins a riveting reverse isekai tale with a protagonist who first appears villainous.

After a brutal battle pushes the Corpse God to the brink of death, he uses a reincarnation spell to flee, waking up in modern Tokyo inside the freshly murdered Polka’s body. He quickly encounters the girl responsible for his current vessel’s death, a member of an underground group.

Deciding to ally with them, Polka, though not inherently evil, doesn’t hesitate to take lives when necessary, supported by allies with questionable morals. Unlike traditional isekai, which transports viewers to unfamiliar fantastical realms, this reverse isekai captivates with its unique and fascinating earthly setting.

Summoned To Another World For A Second Time


Originally a novel, Kazuha Kishimoto’s Summoned to Another World for a Second Time has transformed into a light novel, an ongoing manga, and now an anime set to debut in April 2023. As the title suggests, the protagonist, Setsu, returns to a world he once visited, finding it considerably changed.

This power fantasy anime caters more to the seinen demographic, with a harem dynamic featuring a pre-set group of waifus accompanying the main character. Setsu’s nearly flawless nature can be divisive, as the anime has introduced few challenges that truly test him.

The Most Heretical Last Boss Queen: From Villainess To Savior

Notorious for her harsh treatment of others, Prince Pride experiences a transformative revelation when dormant memories awaken, uncovering her true self as a Japanese girl reborn as the antagonist in an otome game. Resolute in avoiding a doomed fate, Pride seeks to evolve into a wise and compassionate leader, using her considerable power.

Echoing the vibe of “I’m the Villainess, So I’m Taming the Final Boss” and “My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom!”, “The Most Heretical Last Boss Queen: From Villainess to Savior” is set to leave a memorable mark as an extraordinary addition to this subgenre.

The Rising of the Shield Hero (Season 3)

For those seeking the most promising anime of 2023, “The Rising of the Shield Hero” Season 3 should top your list. This eagerly awaited season carries forward the compelling story of Naofumi Iwatani, a chosen World Cardinal Hero in a parallel world.

Under Hitoshi Haga’s direction, Season 3 reinstates the skilled crew from past seasons. While the third season’s release was initially forecasted for 2022, it didn’t materialize. However, prospects for its 2023 arrival keep the anticipation high among the series’ fans.

Skip And Loafer

Mitsumi Iwakura leaves her rural village to attend high school in Tokyo, a carefully planned first step towards her future. However, the bustling subway lines challenge her, and she finds herself lost, only to be rescued by classmate Sousuke Shima. This chance meeting not only shapes their school days but impacts other students as well.

“Skip and Loafer” merges comedy, drama, and romance to probe into adolescent life’s complexities. It explores the characters’ aspirations, insecurities, flaws, and personal growth. With her contagious positivity, Mitsumi influences her surroundings, even as she struggles with overwhelming emotions. Sousuke, hiding regrets beneath his relaxed exterior, strives to overcome them. While the protagonists stand out, they are not the only remarkable characters in “Skip and Loafer.”

Oshi No Ko

Aka Akasaka’s seinen manga adaptation, Oshi no Ko, quickly gained attention with a lengthy debut episode that acted as a prequel movie. By episode 6, it took a commanding lead in the Spring 2023 anime line-up, showcasing its high-quality content.

The story begins when doctor Gorou Amemiya meets a pregnant idol and mysteriously reincarnates as one of her twins after his death, retaining his previous life’s memories. The narrative fast-forwards a few years, following Gorou’s revenge pursuit in the entertainment industry after a family tragedy. It scrutinizes media subcultures from idols to reality shows, often portraying a less than glamorous image.

Despite its raw realism, Oshi no Ko maintains elements of humor and fantasy. It confronts mature themes like cyberbullying and fan obsession, while also acknowledging the enchantment of fame and the entertainment industry’s positives. This balanced view amplifies the impact of the show’s weighty moments.

Mobile Suit Gundam

Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch From Mercury’s first season was a standout in the Fall 2022 anime offerings, setting a solid foundation for the sequel with its captivating finale hinting at future turmoil.

The narrative follows Suletta Mercury, a girl and her Gundam from a unique academy run by the Benerit Group. Winning a mecha battle, she secures her right to marry Miorine, the chairman’s daughter. The series ventures beyond the school setting, delving into commercialism, politics, human experimentation, and war.

As her father falls ill, Miorine must step up to lead the Benerit Group amidst competition, while escalating tensions between Earthians and Spacians draw her and Suletta into the conflict. The second season of The Witch From Mercury is geared for an intense, unpredictable climax, signaling tougher times ahead.

A Girl & Her Guard Dog

Isaku didn’t choose to be a yakuza boss’s daughter, but following her parents’ fatal car accident when she was five, her gangster grandfather raised her within the clan.

After years of social isolation due to her family background, Isaku aims for a normal high-school experience, hoping to find love along the way.

But her plans get disrupted when her loyal family servant and protector, 26-year-old Keiya, enrolls in the same high school to ensure her safety. Now, she must manage not only high-school dynamics but also her chain-smoking, pistol-toting guardian. What challenges await this young lady?
