Top Read Anime Articles of 2023

adminJanuary 30, 2024

Top Read Anime Articles of 2023. As my fourth year now doing this roundup, it’s always fascinating to see what exactly ranks the highest as the year ends. Publishing this in the new year helps confirm my feeling that you need to let the current year end first, as any big news can break before December 31 (as you’ll see soon).

2023 was a big year of change, particularly with Attack on Titan‘s final finalized finale, but one that also continues to show the extended interests of anime fandoms. While you will normally be correct that Shonen Jump titles claim the crown for reads, don’t count out the silently popular Isekai and/or reincarnation anime!

Without further ado, here are the top-performing Crunchyroll news and features articles from the year 2023.
