Crunchyroll Announces 3 New Simulcasts & 1 New Catalog Title


Crunchyroll had four more announcements today. The first being Wagamama High Spec which will be available Mondays starting April 11 at 10:30 AM PST  Worldwide except Japan, Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan. AXsiZ is adapting Madoft’s yet to be released visual novel which Sekai Project has already announced to be localized. Anime News Network describes the series as:

The visual novel’s story revolves around Kōki Narumi, a high school student who also draws a manga serialized in a weekly magazine. Because the manga he draws is a risqué romantic comedy, he keeps this fact a secret from everyone around him, with his younger sister Toa and his best friend Mihiro being the only ones who know.

But one day, as the student council president Kaoruko Rokuonji is searching for male members for the student council, she finds out that Kōki is the manga’s author. Kōki joins the student council in exchange for Kaoruko not revealing his secret. However, the vice president, Ashe R. Sakuragi, strongly opposes him joining, and in the midst of all this, various requests and troubles of students begin to pile up.


The second is Usakame which will be available Mondays starting April 11 at 10:30 AM PST in USA, Canada, Latin America (Central and South America including Caribbean), United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Denmark, Finland, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden. Millepensee is adapting Tsugeo Terada and Juuzou Kirisawa’s manga which is a spin-off of Tsugeo Terada and Piyo’s Teekyuu manga. Crunchyroll streamed all the seasons of the Teekyuu adaptation as it aired.


The third is Rin-ne Season 2 which will be available Saturdays starting April 9 at 4:00 AM PST in USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Latin America. Brain’s Base is adapting Rumiko Takahashi’s manga running in Shounen Sunday since 2009. Crunchyroll describes the series as:

The second season of the supernatural comedy series returns, based on the original manga by Rumiko Takahashi of Inuyasha fame, and being produced by Brain’s Base, whose other works include My Little Monster and Baccano!

Penniless half-human, half-shinigami-kind-of-thing Rinne Rokudo manages to scrape together just enough money to survive as he continues his work, leading lost spirits to the Wheel of Reincarnation. Aided by the forever blunt Sakura Mamiya and an entourage of ridiculous “friends,” Rinne has his work cut out for him as he encounters new allies and enemies, while still dealing with his nearly crippling poverty!


Finally is the addition of the Blue Exorcist dub to their catalog, along with the subtitled version with all episodes available now in the US and Canada. Adapted by A-1 Pictures from Kazue Katou’s Jump SQ manga running from 2009. Crunchyroll describes the series as:

Assiah, the realm of humans, and Gehenna, the realm of demons. Normally, these two dimensions would never intersect, but the demons are now intruding on the material world.
