New anime releases this weekend

Believe us when we say this is the weekend to stay in, relax, and watch some anime! And what better anime to start with than My Hero Academia?

The release of the highly anticipated seventh season of the smash-hit shounen anime is all anyone is talking about, especially because this season will provide more insight into how All for One (the main antagonist of the series) will go about his mission of trying to overtake the hero society and obtain all the power.

How will Midoriya Izuku and his fellow heroes take down the evil powers that be? We will find out soon enough! Until then, check out the official trailer for My Hero Academia season 7 below!

My Hero Academia season 7 isn't the only anime you should stream this weekend. Here is our full list of what to watch on Saturday and Sunday:

Sure, everyone knows My Hero Academia season 7 will be the big release this weekend, but we also implore anime fans to turn their heads to Grandpa and Grandma Turn Young Again, as this anime is one of the most wholesome shows that one could ever watch!

The anime is about an elderly couple that gets a second chance to relive their younger days after a supernatural miracle. They do their best to try to avoid taking for granted their blessing by doing things they've always wanted to do as a couple. The journey that they take of finding new things to do is nothing less than something straight out of a romance novel!

See all this and more in the official trailer for the anime below!

Grandpa and Grandma Turn Young Again releases on Crunchyroll this Sunday, May 5, so be sure to have your subscription ready to stream every second of this anime.

Now that you know what's heading your way, be sure to head to any of the aforementioned websites to catch everything releasing this weekend.
