Black Summoner – Crunchyroll

Airing July 9th on Crunchyroll, this Isekai anime might seem awfully similar to those other ‘transported to a mysterious land’ shows at first glance, however, the trailer actually looks really well done. The animation looks crisp, the combat looks well choreographed and the story seems exciting.

Rent-A-Girlfriend – Season 2 – Crunchyroll

If the second season of Rent-A-Girlfriend is half as good as the first season, fans are in for a treat. It’s probably the anime viewers are most excited for in the summer of 2022. A slice of life, romance, comedy and some great eye candy, this show has it all. Fans are quite curious to see what the second season will bring, as one would think the premise of renting a girlfriend can only go so far. It will air on Crunchyroll as well, with a date of July 1, 2022.

My Isekai Life: Strongest Sage Online! – HiDive

It doesn’t take a genius to guess what this anime is about. Yup, thats right. In this series, your average office worker Yuuji is transported to another world full of fantasy and magic. The trailer looks very promising and the light novels were well received. Let’s just hope its not another one of those bland, Isekai series’ with no feeling or stakes involved. It will air exclusively on HiDive on July 4th.

Engage Kiss – Crunchyroll

Perhaps at first, one may think Engage Kiss is just a plain-old slice of life anime. That is, until halfway through the trailer, pink swords are unsheathed and bullets are fired from pretty ladies. It looks like a helluva good time. Airing on July 2nd, Crunchyroll will be simulcasting this series as well.

The Maid I Hired Recently is Mysterious – Crunchyroll

What is this anime about exactly? Well, just read the title. Something about a maid being mysterious, we assume. It’s actually about a young maid being hired by the main character Yuuri’s family. In the beginning, he is overly suspicious of her behavior and actions. This causes paranoia to develop in his head as he pays close attention to her every move. It may seem like a basic storyline, but it definitely caught our eye. You never know when an innocent looking anime like this might have some hidden twists and turns that you don’t see coming. Based on a webcomic from 2019, then SquareEnix serializing it in 2020, it is finally seeing the light of day on July 24th, 2022.

The Devil is a Part-Timer! Season 2 – Crunchyroll

Almost ten years after the first season aired, a second season of The Devil is a Part-Timer! is finally getting released on July 14th! This absolutely hilarious show, with a side of action and romance, is one that any anime fan should be excited for. The premise is a tad silly we admit, but it helps viewers bond with the characters more. It’s almost a reverse Isekai, where the Devil gets transported from the demon world to Earth. Sent here with nothing but the clothes on his back, he and his subordinate must work part-time at a local McDonalds knock-off restaurant in order to pay rent for their shabby apartment. The story ends up getting pretty good and we’re looking forward to what the second season brings us.
