On Friday, March 15, 2024. Crunchyroll informed Sportskeeda via email correspondence about the anime they are set to bring to India as part of their Spring 2024 anime season. Out of the ten anime, seven series are set to receive Hindi, English, and other regional language dubs.

Crunchyroll has been actively trying to expand its market in India. This has been especially evident through the number of screenings they have done in India. In addition, the streaming platform has also introduced regional language dubs and incorporated local payment systems, such as UPI to make the platform more accessible to the anime audience in India.

As mentioned above, Crunchyroll is set to premiere a total of 10 anime in India as part of the Spring 2024 anime season. More anime may be announced as part of the platform's Spring 2024 library in the near future.

Though, for now, the streaming service has announced the following anime:

All seven anime will receive Hindi dubs, and a few of them will receive English and regional language dub choices as well. The two regional language dubs are Tamil and Telugu.

It is surprising that, unlike in the past when English dub options received priority, the priority this time has been given to Hindi dubs. This is evident from the fact that BARTENDER Glass of God has been listed to feature a Hindi dub but not an English dub.

That said, fans should note that the release dates mentioned are only for the English-subtitled versions of the anime and not their dubbed episode versions. The episode release dates for the dubbed versions will be disclosed later by the streaming platform. However, fans can expect them to be released sooner rather than later.

Besides the nine new and returning anime, Crunchyroll is also set to see TSUKIMICHI -Moonlit Fantasy- Season 2 continue airing from its premiere back in the Winter 2024 anime season. The anime is being animated by J.C.STAFF and will release its new episodes on Mondays.
