40 Best Anime Series To Watch On Crunchyroll
Buddy Daddies, Chainsaw Man, Demon Sayer, Tower of God and Many More. Credits: Crunchyroll

Anime is at an all-time high with higher production value and even better storylines. Be it subtitles or dubbing. Anime is one of the most consumed media online among youth. It is known for its great animation, cool characters, and storylines that have a vast range and depth- from humor to heartwrenching angst, beautiful OST, and the spice of Japanese culture.

Fans love to stick around for short anime that might have either just one season of 12 episodes, like Spy X Family, or hundreds of episodes and multiple seasons, like One piece, that has been in production for years. A good anime is always worth the time for an otaku. 

However, in a time where anime is not only available on TV on channels such as Animax but also online on online streaming services like Netflix, there’s a site that is dedicated especially to anime lovers. Whether you want to try out anime for the first time or pick up a long-watched anime in the middle of the season, you can go on Crunchyroll!
