Crunchyroll has unveiled its summer anime lineup, with dozens of new shows and old favorites to look forward to over the next few months.

The anime streamer is brightening up what is, typically, a traditionally dry season for new releases. Among the highlights are Tower of God season 2 on July 7, plus the return of Nier: Automata Ver1.1A, the adaptation of the beloved 2017 PlatinumGames title, on July 5.

Monogotari’s Off & Monster season is streaming from July 6, while we have a keen interest in new series Wistoria: Wand and Sword, which sees protagonist Will Serfort aim to prove the sword is mightier than the wand in a world where magic reigns supreme.

Several anime are also continuing on from the spring season.

Though unconfirmed, the absence of Demon Slayer season 4 there would suggest the Hashira Training arc is coming to a close at the end of June, rather than stretching into July.
