Crunchyroll Announces 3 Spring 2016 Simulcasts


With the winter 2016 anime season wrapping up hype has started building for spring and with it comes the exciting announcements of where we will be able to watch the upcoming shows legally. Crunchyroll has started their announcements (aside from KIZNAIVER which was announced a few weeks back) today with 3 titles.


First is Anne-Happy which is set to stream Thursdays, starting April 7, at 7:00 AM PST worldwide except Asia. Produced by Silver Link and based off Cotoji’s manga running in Manga Time Kirara Forward, Crunchyroll describes the series as:

A group of pitiable girls live their days with energy and cheer in this encouraging school comedy.

All the students of Tennogofune Academy’s Class 1-7 seem to be plagued by “”bad karma,”” or misfortune. Hanakoizumi An the unlucky, Hibarigaoka Ruri of the tragic love stories, Kumegawa Botan with her perpetually poor health, Hagyuu Hibiki with her bad sense of direction, and Ekoda Ren with constant women troubles have just joined the class, and they’re all doing their best to live their high school lives as happily as they can…


Next is Twin Star Exorcists which is set to stream Wednesdays, starting April 6, at 4:00 AM PST worldwide except Asia. Produced by Studio Pierott and based off Yoshiaski Sukeno’s manga running in Jump Sqaure, Crunchyroll describes the series as:

Grotesque monsters known as Impurities reside in Magano, a realm parallel to the present day. Exorcists purify these evil apparitions to protect the people. Rokuro Enmadou is opposed to becoming an exorcist, even though he has the talent to be one, but an oracle gives him the title of “Twin Star Exorcist,” the name bestowed upon married exorcists. Benio Adashino, the girl who receives the title along with Rokuro, is determined to exorcise all the Impurities in the world. The two find themselves wrapped up in more and more battles together as the Twin Star Exorcists, and as Rokuro watches Benio fight with the wish to become stronger, he’s forced to face the weakness he’s lived with ever since the Hiinatsuki Tragedy. Now that his eyes are turned toward the battle again, thanks to Benio, Rokuro makes up his mind to fight as an exorcist once more, and the Twin Star Exorcists take on the most powerful of Impurities together!


Last is the second cour of The Asterisk War titled The Asterisk War Second Season which is set to stream Saturdays, starting April 2, at 8:00 AM PST in North, Central and South America, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand. Produced by A-1 Pictures and based off Yuu Miyazaki and okiura’s light novel series published by Media Factory, Crunchyroll describes the series as:

Invertia–The astral catastrophe that annihilated many cities in the 20th century also gave birth to an all new human race with special abilities called the Genestella (the Star-Pulse Generation). At the same time, the special element (Mana) found within the meteors of Invertia facilitated humanity’s technological advancement. Upon Rikka, the academy-city above water, or what many call the “Asterisk,” students of the six schools prepare for the Festa. These annual comprehensive battle tournaments are held on a worldwide scale and each of the six schools place their hopes in their teams to bring them victory. In the Phoenix Festa (tag-team battle) category, Seidoukan Academy’s Ayato Amagiri takes up the challenge along with his partner Julis, the Witch of the Resplendent Flames (Glühen Rose).

Crunchyroll promises more announcements tomorrow starting at 11:00 AM PST and we will be sure to cover any made once they are done for the day.
