Crunchyroll Announces 2 More Spring 2016 Simulcasts


Crunchyroll is back today with a couple more announcements.


First up is Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World- which is set to stream Sundays, starting April 3, at 11:35 AM PST with future episiodes at 10:35 AM PST worldwide except Asia. Produced by White Fox and based off Tappei Nagatsuki and Shinichirou Ootsuka’s light novel published by Media Factory, Crunchyroll describes the series as:

Natsuki Subaru, an ordinary high school student, encounters a beautiful silver-haired girl from another world. Subaru wants to stay by her side and help her, but the burden she carries is far beyond anything Subaru imagined. They’re faced with one attacking monster after another, betrayal, irrational violence… and finally death. Subaru doesn’t want to see her get hurt, so he vows to take down any enemy, any fate that comes his way, to protect her. And so this powerless boy obtains “Return by Death,” a unique ability that allows him to turn back time by dying. It becomes the potential to guide all people to a world where everyone can always be smiling, dependent on Subaru’s life and loneliness. By using his power, the past can be lost, and memories can be rewritten. Subaru must now fight the fate that dooms him to keep all those forgotten memories hidden within, to be perpetually beaten, to see his own heart wearing down, to wager his life… all to protect the people he cares about. To get back the precious times that he’s sure must have happened.

“Even if you forget me, I will never forget you.”


The other announcement is for JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Diamond is Unbreakable which is set to stream Fridays, starting April 1, at with time to be announced later in US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Europe, Central/South America, and Middle East. Produced by David Productions and based off Hirohiko Araki’s manga running in Weekly Shounen Jump from 1992-1995, Crunchyroll describes the series as:

It has been 11 years since the defeat of the Joestar’s arch nemesis, Dio. In 1999, Jotaro Kujo went to Morioh in S City in M Prefecture, Japan, to find his grandfather, Joseph Joestar’s secret child, Josuke Higashikata. However, Josuke had the same ability as Jotaro, the Stand. And as though Jotaro was summoning them, a new group of Stand Users start to make their moves. There’s something in this town… Josuke rises up to save Morioh, his hometown that he grew up in.
