For many anime titles, the final days of June mark the last weekend when new episodes will be released. Although this is a sad fact to come to terms with, especially because we really wanted most of these anime titles to continue on for a little while longer, this means this isn't the weekend you'll want to miss.

From the season finale of Demon Slayer: Hashira Training Arc to the finale of Kaiju No. 8 season 1, there are tons of stunning brand-new episodes in store for you this weekend and we're here to tell you more about what you can expect. Without further ado, here's this weekend's anime watchlist!

Starting with one of the most highly anticipated releases of the week is none other than Demon Slayer: Hashira Training Arc's season finale!

In the final episode, the stakes are higher than ever, as Muzan has finally made his move to put a stop the the Demon Slayer Corps once and for all. His first move seems to be taking out his mortal nemesis, Kagaya Ubuyashiki. But will Muzan be able to waltz in and flip the script with little to no issue? Or will our mighty Hashira members step in to save the day? And, most importantly, will Tanjiro be of any use after all his training?

All these burning questions and more are ones that we can't wait to see get answered in the finale. But before we see what's headed our way, get a quick refresher on the journey by watching the official trailer for Hashira Training Arc below.

Be sure to stream this brand-new episode on Sunday, June 30, at 11:45 a.m. PT / 2:45 p.m. ET on Crunchyroll!

The party certainly doesn't stop there! Here are more anime to be on the lookout for:

  • Kaiju No. 8
  • Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation Season 2 Part 2
  • My Hero Academia season 7
  • Spice and Wolf: Merchant Meets the Wise Wolf
  • The Irregular at Magic High School season 3

Last but not least is Wind Breaker!

Wind Breaker's final episode of season 1 is one of the most important conclusions we have all year, as it will tie up the loose ends of Sakura's journey to being the top delinquent of the town but will also set up whatever the anime has in store for us in the further. This is important because, with so many new fans, this anime has to make sure it wraps up exceptionally well to not only impress viewers but also hopefully secure that season 2 renewal.

Check out everything Wind Breaker encompasses by seeing this dope moment featuring Sakura and Togame below.

The final episode of Wind Breaker season 1 was released on Thursday, June 27!

Now that you know all about what you should watch this weekend, be sure to head to Crunchyroll or any of your favorite anime streaming sites to catch every second of these amazing titles!
