Also arriving on Feb. 7, 2023 is the Blu-ray release of How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord – Season 2. Feb. 14, 2023 will see the Blu-ray launches of The Slime Diaries – The Complete Season and World Witches Take Off! – The Complete Season. Finally, Love After World Domination – The Complete Season hits Blu-ray on Feb. 21, 2023.
All the newly announced Blu-ray sets are available to pre-order now at the official Crunchyroll Store. You can check out some images of the new upcoming Blu-ray sets scheduled to launch in February below:
Of course, fans also have the option of watching all these shows now via Crunchyroll’s app and browser-based website. All of these shows are streaming on the Crunchyroll library right now. Fans can download the anime and manga app now. It’s available on 15 platforms, including all major gaming consoles.
The Slime Diaries is a spinoff to the popular anime series, That Time I Was Reincarnated As A Slime. The good news for fans of the show is that Season 3 is currently in the works, so hopefully, the wait won’t be too much longer. Some new artwork for the third season was also revealed, showcasing Hinata Sakaguchi and Rimuru in his new dark attire and sword from some of the latest episodes. The upcoming season does not yet have an official launch date.
Meanwhile, How Not To Summon A Demon Lord – Season 2 continues the isekai story from where the first season left off. Demon Lord Diablo and his friends are back for more fantasy world adventures and high jinks. It’s certainly an irreverent series.
Love After World Domination is a goofy and hilarious rom-com series about the leader of a Super Sentai hero team who falls in love with the soldier of an evil army of baddies who are bent on world domination. It doesn’t matter that they are on opposing sides of a dire conflict. They are absolutely crazy about one another and are weirdly perfect for each other as well. Fans of Power Rangers and Super Sentai will definitely want to give this show a look if they haven’t already.
