Newly announced Crunchyroll Anime Central series will keep fans busy!

As shown with each entry, the anime streaming conglomerate is adding different types of shows for the back half of the year. Anime can feel intimidating or overwhelming for some people, but I assure you that there is a series out there for all types of interests.

I personally want to check out Am I Actually the Strongest because the premise sets itself up with some funny scenarios. I also want to tune into I’m in Love with the Villainess because it’s set in a video game world, and the synopsis sounds like the series is going to be filled with miscommunication gags in the protagonist’s romantic journey.

Which of these series revealed during the Crunchyroll Anime Central panel have caught your eye? Let us know your thoughts on the Agents of Fandom socials, and keep up to date with more Agents of Anime content here!
