Here’s an overview of the most-watched anime currently on Crunchyroll:

  1. Kaiju No. 8
  2. Tsukimichi
  3. Mushoku Tensei

Now, let’s discuss a few points about these rankings:

  • Firstly, it’s uncertain how long Kaiju No. 8 will maintain its top position in terms of popularity. The reason? Other anime are hot on its heels. 🤔
  • Starting with the two that previously outranked it, “Tsukimichi” and “Mushoku Tensei”, it wouldn’t be surprising to see them make a comeback at any moment. This ranking is highly volatile, and it’s not uncommon to see an anime like “Mushoku Tensei” jump several positions. 😮
  • Moreover, the new season of Kimetsu no Yaiba is definitely one to watch. Although it may not be as ‘intense’ as previous seasons due to its current storyline, it’s still Kimetsu no Yaiba. Currently in fourth place, it’s entirely possible that it could surge to the top spot with a strong week. 😏


Shows that seem less likely to take the top spot at this point include “My Hero Academia”, “Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken”, and “Wind Breaker”, among others. Despite consistently ranking among the most popular, they don’t seem to have the same appeal at the moment as “Kaiju No. 8” or “Kimetsu no Yaiba”. Nonetheless, the final 2-3 weeks of the spring quarter are sure to hold some surprises.
