Crunchyroll just added the English-dubbed versions of about 170 classic and modern anime series to their service and there are some real goodies to check out! The titles come from Funimation’s extensive library thanks to Funimation’s recent $1.1 billion acquisition of Crunchyroll. While they paid over a thousand million dollars to bring the two libraries together, the cost to subscribe to Crunchyroll hasn’t increased, so here’s a quick look at ten of the best new arrivals! You can check the entire list of what’s available over at Crunchyroll

Assassination Classroom

Subs and dubs are new to Crunchyroll

Everyone has that one teacher they can think of that changed their lives, for better or worse. For the academically challenged students of Kunugigaoka Junior High, their lives are forever changed when a literal monster starts teaching their class. Worse yet, the world will be destroyed if the students can’t assassinate their teacher by the end of the school year. But despite the intense set up, Assassination Classroom is actually a light-hearted underdog story that is equal parts hilarious and thrilling. Each student in the classroom is a full-fledged character in their own right and the class’s ever-escalating mission to kill their teacher is a joy to watch.

Black Clover

Dubs are new to Crunchyroll

Wizards fighting each other is pretty much everything there is to Black Clover and it’s incredible. It taps into every cliche in the book, but it’s well worth the watch with its gorgeously realized visuals, relatably chummy characters, and an endless supply of hype moments. The only big-big issue is how loud and grating the main character sounds in the original Japanese version. Thankfully the addition of over 150 dubbed episodes is the perfect remedy for fans unable to get past the nails-on-a-chalkboard aural assault of the original.

Cowboy Bebop

Subs and dubs are new to Crunchyroll

When it comes to classic anime, you really cannot top Cowboy Bebop. It’s a stylish neo-noir that follows two down-and-out bounty hunters bopping around a down-and-out solar system in search of their next big payday. Pretty much every aspect of the show, from its sound design to its color palette to its hard-boiled action, is undeniably cool and instantly recognizable. Fans in the US were introduced to the series when it premiered in English on Adult Swim 20-odd years ago and it still is regarded as one of the best anime dubs ever. And if Netflix’s ill-fated live-action adaptation didn’t quite do it for you, the original is here waiting for you.

Dragon Ball Z

The dub is on Crunchyroll, but it’s not subbed at the moment

Simply put, us Americans would not be into anime today if Toonami never ran Dragon Ball Z after school five days a week. The iconic English cast was appropriately silly and equally loud when it came time to scream and power up. Even the narrator had a classic part to play with his delightfully put-on recaps and dramatic previews for the next episode. For all its goofiness and the glacial pacing, it’s the English cast that makes this a nostalgic powerhouse perfect for jumping back into.

Fruits Basket

Dubs are new to Crunchyroll

While DBZ, Pokémon, and Sailor Moon were busy dominating our airwaves, a shojo manga was quietly selling millions of volumes to fans across the US. Fruits Basket is a best-selling and beloved romantic comedy with a deeply emotional and mature core. It had its own popular anime in the early 2000s, but Crunchyroll just added the newer adaptation from 2019 that made Fruits Basket a smash hit all over again. If you’re a new fan or you aren’t feeling nostalgic, there’s a lot to love across all three seasons.

Subs and dubs are new to Crunchyroll

You might have missed this recent cult-classic, but word to the wise, the bloody faceoffs in Gleipnir are a lot! It’s all about a regular high schooler who can inexplicably become a kind of mascot-looking monster with a giant gun and a zipper down his back. The similarly super-powered people he meets along the way are sometimes less than friendly and other times more than forward. It’s a crazy series with an unexpectedly engaging story that is well worth the quick watch. Unfortunately, there’s no news on a second season yet, but you can always see where the story goes by reading the manga.

Kaguya-sama: Love is War

Season 1 is now dubbed and Season 2 has subs and dubs

Back in the 1850s, old Francis Edward Smedley could have never imagined that his famous “All is fair in love and war” saying would be twisted into one of the most popular rom-coms of the 21st century. This hilariously extra anime follows Kaguya and Miyuki’s high-stakes competition to force the other to confess their true feelings. The two elitists are so convinced that if they were to confess to the other, they would lose standing to their new partner. What follows is a series of increasingly ludicrous plots, schemes, and underhanded tactics sure to delight.

Kingdom is back on Crunchyroll with dubs and subs, including simulcast episodes from Season 4

The long-running historical epic Kingdom is back on Crunchyroll thanks to the pricey acquisition and merger. Fans have bought so many volumes of the source material that it’s become one of the greatest-selling manga of all-time. However, American fans have been unable to buy any of the 60+ volumes in English. So until a publisher licenses the manga, this anime is undoubtedly the best way to legally enjoy Ri Shin’s incredible pursuit of kingdom.

My Hero Academia

Dubs are new to Crunchyroll

The inspiring global phenomenon about super-powered kids learning to become heroes is a must-watch, plain and simple. With stunning action brought to life by talented animators and an incredible cast of heroes, goofy heroes-to-be, and complex villains, My Hero Academia has it all. Even if you’ve already watched it in Japanese, now is a great time to go back from the beginning and check out the English cast’s takes on your favorite quirky characters.

Yu Yu Hakusho

Subs and dubs are new to Crunchyroll

The all-time oldie-but-goodie on this list has such a strong dub that it’s hard to imagine its cast of characters speaking anything but English. But Yu Yu Hakusho doesn’t just hold up on the merit of its vocal performers, it’s a non-stop romp with a little bit of everything. It’s got crazy fights against demons, hilarious banter, and an insanely fashionable wardrobe that has recently surged back into style. It’s also well-worth watching in its native Japanese, if only to experience it the way it originally aired.
