For the second season of the year, a load of second seasons:
Ascendance of a Bookworm 2
Fruits Basket (2019) 2
Kaguya-sama: Love is War 2
No Guns Life 2
Sword Art Online: Alicization -War of Underworld 2

And new shows. I know GitS is in there, but the style is so different I'm treating it as a new take, even if it has the SAC subtitle!
Afterschool Embankment Journal
Fugou Keiji: Balance:Unlimited
Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045
My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom!
Olympia Kyklos
President, It's Time for Battle!
Princess Connect! Re: Dive
Shironeko Project: Zero Chronicle
Sing 'Yesterday' for Me
Tower of God
Wave, Listen to Me!
Woodpecker Detective's Office

So 23 shows with the usual caveat of Netflix jail, some are shorts and some may not survive the initial reaction.

Toei Company has announced that they're launching their official Global YouTube Channel called Toei Tokusatsu World Official, launching Monday 6th April. It'll be available worldwide excluding Japan. They currently have 70 shows planned, most of them being tokusatsu, but there will be some anime series too, hence why I mentioned this in this topic. At this time, only English subtitles will be included in the first two episodes, but there will be updates regarding further episodes, and they're making public calls for subtitles in other languages too.
