Crunchyroll is getting plenty of anime movies for September 2022

It looks like Crunchyroll has finally realized that it’s not just anime series that audiences want. We also want to watch animated feature films. Luckily, they’re hard at work, and those anime movies are coming very soon.

Crunchyroll and their new/old anime movies

Not really one of the anime movies coming in September, but a good watch nonetheless.

Crunchyroll is proud to announce that a whole host of anime movies are coming to their streaming platform in September 2022. The list of upcoming anime movies is quite long. Genres range from dark fantasy horror for Jujutsu Kaisen 0 to fun sci-fi comedy-drama for The girl who crossed time. All in all, there is something here for everyone when September rolls around.

You can see a full list of anime movies Crunchyroll will be adding to the streaming service in September below:

Crunchyroll: September 2022 Anime Movie Releases

September 1st

Afro Samurai: Resurrection (Gonzo)

"Afro Samurai: Resurrection" key visual.
Get ready for more blood, gore and afros than ever before.

Afro Samurai (Samuel L. Jackson) has avenged his father and found a life of peace. But the legendary master is forced back into the game by a beautiful and deadly woman from his past. Nowhere are the flames of hatred more intense than in the eyes of Sio (Lucy Liu: Kill Bill). She won’t give up until Afro learns the brutal lessons he gave to those who stood in his way.

This helmet is oddly hilarious to me.

Bang Dream! Poppin’ Dream! (SANZIGEN)

It looks a lot like another idol anime. It just makes me want The Zombie Country Saga.

September 8

ODDTAXI in the woods (OLM)

"ODDTAXI in the woods" key visual.
As zootopiabut if it was a dark and mysterious drama.

Taxi driver Walrus Odokawa lives a lonely life without family, social activities, or stimulating conversation. His only friends? His doctor and a former high school classmate. But her mundane existence is thrown into chaos as interactions with seemingly unrelated fare – a student, a nurse, a comedy duo, a thug and an idol group – converge with a missing girl on her way out.

Wait, can walruses even sweat?

PSYCHO-PASS Sinners of the System: Case.1 Crime and Punishment (IG production)

I become strong ghost in the shell vibrations of that.

PSYCHO-PASS Sinners of the System: Cas.2 First Guardian (IG production)

The ghost in the shell the vibrations become even stronger.

PSYCHO-PASS Sinners of the System: Cas.3 Beyond the Paleness of Vengeance (IG production)

That’s over 9000!

September 15

The girl who crossed time (Crazy’s house)

"The girl who crossed time" key visual.
A.K.A: Time travel for fun until it’s not.

After waking up late, missing her pop quiz, repeatedly embarrassing herself, and starting a fire in her home economics class, high school student Makoto Konno thinks she’s just having one of those days. And just when she thinks she’s succeeded, her bike’s brakes malfunction, putting her on a collision course with a speeding train. The fatal accident would have been the perfect end to the worst day ever, but the weirdest thing happens: it jumps back in time.

Nice reminder of the theatrical release poster in this thumbnail here.

The Stranger’s Sword (BONES)

Oh look it’s chibi Sif!

This classic tale from studio BONES is a hidden gem of its time! Pursued by fearsome Chinese assassins, young Kotaro and his dog encounter No Name, a mysterious stranger who finds himself drawn into the pursuit. The unlikely companions form a bond to save the dog from a poisonous attack, but chaos erupts when the assassins find Kotaro, and No Name must face his past before a horrific fate happens again.

It gives me strength Dororo vibes, but with a mixed dog.

Black Butler: Book of the Atlantic (Pictures A-1)

Aliases: the zombie Titanic bow.

Embark on the next great adventure of Ciel and his demonic butler, Sebastian! After hearing rumors of a particular company bringing people back from the dead, the two board the luxury liner Campania on its maiden voyage to investigate. Incognito within the mysterious Aurora Society, they discover familiar faces and a sight they cannot believe: a woman risen from the dead! But surprise quickly turns to dread when the staggering corpse attacks.

September 21

"JUJUTSU KAISEN 0" key visual.
I swear it’s like Bleachbut with a battle panda.

JUJUTSU KAISEN 0 follows Yuta Okkotsu, a nervous high school student, who enrolls in the mysterious Tokyo Jujutsu High School under the guidance of Satoru Gojo after being haunted by the curse of his childhood friend.

But with a little more horror than Bleach normally would, and that’s saying something.

September 22

Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion II – Transgression (Sunrise)

And now for part 2 of this anime compilation.

Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion III – Glorification (Sunrise)

Well, this must be the last part now, right?

Code Geass: Resurrection Lelouch (Sunrise)

"Code Geass: Resurrection Lelouch" key visual.
Oh wait, that’s technically part 4.

He gave his life to save the world and protect those he loved. The day Lelouch vi Brittannia fell was the day this war-torn world found peace. Now, as his friends work to keep the peace, a terrorist attack could risk everything. Can the brilliant tactician outwit death and save them all? Where will Lelouch’s legacy fall here?

Was the whole anime compilation movie arc just to set up this sequel? Oh good?
