Tsukimichi: Moonlight Fantasy
This anime is an adaptation of the hit light novel series from the animation studio C2C and will be released on July 7th.and in Japan.

However, the goddess of this new world does not accept it, chasing Makoto to this new world without her hero title.
Crunchyroll added the series to their Summer lineup, so expect this series to simulcast beginning next week.
Seirei Gensouki: Chronicles of the Spirits
Spirit Chronicles is a success story that started on a new user-generated website before being taken over by Hobby Japan.
The series is about two boys, Amakawa Haruto and Rio, who live in parallel worlds. Amakawa is a young man who died before he was reunited with his childhood sweetheart, while Rio lives in the slums trying to get revenge on his murdered mother.

Arguably the most intriguing new series, The Worlds Finest Assassin isn’t due out until October 2021 as part of the fall slate.
The world’s greatest assassin is now an elderly man who wishes to retire, but after his sudden death he is reincarnated in a magical realm as Lugh Tuatha Da.
