Summer 2023 is turning into a blowout for anime, with lots of key series returning to the forefront, and new ones that’ll surely impress the viewers. While there are certainly expected hits like Jujutsu Kaisen and Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War, other key new shows include Zom 100, Dark Gathering, and more. But fans might also be wondering where they can watch all of these incoming shows. We’ve taken the initiative to gather all of the Summer 2023 Anime Lineup info available, and where you can watch them.

When you peek behind the usual hits expected for an anime, you’ll find even just one season’s lineup to be intensely crowded, and Summer 2023 is no exception to watch out for. The sheer amount of traditional and ONA anime to watch out for alone is quite impressive and will strike the fancy of quite a few viewers, particularly fans of Shonen and Seinen shows.

You’ll notice there are some curious omissions so far from this list. That’s because we wanted to differentiate anime series simulcast episodes after they’ve aired on TV, from other anime formats. A key recent alternative, lately, has been ONA, or Original Net Animation.

Summer 2023 ONA Lineup

ONA series have been growing more popular each year, and it makes sense. With streaming having the presence it does for fans worldwide, accessibility has become less of a problem for anime, and it’s been a great avenue for some shows to truly stand out, and streaming services to catch a major hit. Here are the upcoming Summer 2023 anime offerings:

Summer 2023 Anime (ONA)Where to Watch
4 Cut Herobilibili
All Saints Street Season 4Crunchyroll
Baki Hanma Season 2Netflix
Bastard!! Heavy Metal, Dark Fantasy Season 2Netflix
Blader Soulbilibili

The First Orderbilibili
The Land of Miracles Season 3iQIYI
The Seven Deadly Sins: Grudge of Edinburgh Part 2Netflix
Wu Nao Monubilibili
Xiao Lu He Xiao Lan Season 2bilibili

As you can tell, Netflix takes up a larger presence in the ONA field, with hits like Record of Ragnarok and Baki Hanma among the more anticipated upcoming shows. But additionally, you’ll notice the presence of bilibili and iQIYI among others, as the Chinese presence in anime streaming grows. Buckle up for an exciting summer of streaming, along with these upcoming specials!

Specials, Movies, and OVAs for the Summer

Finally, there are a select few TV specials and OVAs available this summer that you’ll be able to catch. These include the following:

Summer 2023 Anime (OVAs, Movies, and Specials)Where to Watch
Azur Lane: Queen’s Orders (OVA)TBD
Alice to Therese no Maboroshi Koujou (Movie)Blu-Ray, Theaters, TBD
City Hunter The Movie: Angel Dust (Movie)Netflix

Sand Land (Movie)Netflix
Wasure Hoshi no Volicia (Movie)Blu-Ray, Theaters, TBD
Fate/strange Fake: Whispers of Dawn (Special)TBD
The Quintessential Quintuplets (Special)TBD

Several of these series haven’t gotten a clear streaming release date, with anticipated Blu-Ray and theatrical releases, while TV specials are best carefully observed, with Crunchyroll being a common place you should check.

Many of these series, if not explicitly listed for a competing service first, can be assumed to go to the streaming giant, but the OVAs, movies, and Specials are certainly trickier to nail down than other formats.

So get your shiniest anime glasses out, and adjust them publicly to get that signature glimmer, as you show people your knowledge of where to go to watch the biggest hits of Summer 2023!
