Andy has been writing for UK Anime since 2006, and was the site's editor-in-chief until August 2017.  Contrary to popular belief, Andy is not actually a robot.


It's time for us to catch up on another bumper bundle of summer season anime simulcasts from Crunchyroll today, and boy are there plenty of them on show. Let's dig straight into the latest announcements from the service to add to their line-up:

Angel's 3Piece! - A shut-in ever since he had a traumatic experience, Nukui Hibiki's biggest hobby has been using vocalization software to create and uploading songs online. One day, he receives an email from some fifth-grader girls, asking to meet and discuss something with him. The three girls, who have grown up together almost like siblings, ask him to help them show their gratitude to the people who have taken care of them. The method they've devised? Putting on a successful concert at a place full of memories.

Episode one of the show is available right now, with future instalments arriving on Mondays at 1:30PM UK time.

In Another World With My Smartphone - After dying as a result of God's mistake, the main character finds himself in a parallel world, where he begins his second life. His only possessions are the body that God gave back to him and a smartphone that works even in this new world. As he meets all kinds of new people and forges new friendships, he ends up learning the secret to this world. He inherits the legacy of an ancient civilization and works together with the kings of some very laid-back countries on his carefree travels through this new world.

Episode one of the series airs today, with episodes arriving every Tuesday at 2PM UK time.

NEW GAME!! Season 2 - After graduating from high school, Suzukaze Aoba starts work at the game company, Eagle Jump where she ends up working on the third installment of the game she loved as a child, “Fairies’ Story.” Aoba then meets Yagami Ko, who inspired her to become a character designer in the first place, and other senpai at her new job who help her grow along the way.

“Fairies’ Story 3” launched with no problem and now it’s been about a year since Aoba first joined Eagle Jump. The season to welcome in new employees has arrived. Aoba reflects upon how nervous she was when she first started and gets excited about the fact that she was now going to be the senpai.

She repeats, “I’m your senpai, Suzukaze Aoba. Nice to meet you!” in front of the entrance of Eagle Jump, but... A working life comedy about the daily lives of girls working at a gaming company begins its new chapter!

The first episode airs today, with future instalments arriving on Tuesdays at 3PM UK time.

My First Girlfriend is a Gal A new school term begins, as does the season of new encounters.As he surveys his class full of couples, Hashiba Jun'ichi's mind is filled with distress as he asks himself, "Why am I still a virgin?!" 

Having heard from his friends that the easiest way to fulfill his long-standing desire to graduate from the fellowship of virgins is to kowtow to a gal, Jun'ichi does exactly that and asks his classmate Yukana out. And unbelievably, she actually agrees to date him. What will become of Jun'ichi from now on?

The series begins tomorrow, 12th July, with episodes airing each Wednesday at 4:30PM UK time.
