Starting off is Gabriel DropOut which Crunchyroll will be streaming Mondays starting January 9 @ 8:00 AM PT worldwide except Asia. The series adapts Ukami’s manga which has been running in Comic Dengeki Dioah “g” since December 2013. The 12 episode series will be directed by Masahiko Oota at Doga Kobo. Crunchyroll describes the series as:
An angel at the top of an angel school has descended to the human world! However, she has already acclimated to the life of the human world so much that she ends up leading a self-indulgent life, skipping school all the time and being absorbed in online games. Gabriel soon forgets about her original goal to make human beings happy and has turned into a lazy and hopeless angel, or a “sloppy angel” in short. Amazingly, she swears to continue to fully enjoy the pleasure of various entertainments of the human world.
Next up is Minami Kamakura High School Girls Cycling Club which will stream Fridays starting January 6 @ 9:00 AM PT worldwide except Asia. The series is directed by Susumu Kudou at J.C. Staff and A.C.G.T. and is based on Noriyuki Matsumoto’s manga which has been running in Comic Blade since June 2011. Crunchyroll describes the series as:
Maiharu Hiromi has moved from Nagasaki to Kamakura to attend high school. Her new residence means a new school and new friends, and all of her exciting new encounters from day to day happen when she’s on her bicycle! Kamakura is the stage for these high school girls who have devoted their youth to cycling!
Each episode of the anime will be concluded with a live-action segment starring Hirose Yuuki, the voice of Akitsuki Tomoe, and Fukuo Yui, the voice of Akitsuki Yuika.
Closing off is the not so surprising Idol Incidents which will stream Sundays starting January 8 @ 8:30 AM PT worldwide except Asia. The original anime is directed by Daisuke Yoshida and written by Sotaro Hayashi and Sumino Kawashima at MAPPA and Studio VOLN. Crunchyroll describes as:
The story is set in a parallel Japan very similar to the modern Japan we know today. Increasing income divide, creeping environmental pollution, unsolvable garbage problems, childcare waiting lists being disputed while those directly involved aren’t present, repeated cases of corruption… Japan’s government, entrenched in its own vested interests, can do nothing about the abundant problems and discontent throughout the land. Now, at long last, idols are taking a stand to rescue a nation with no way out! The Heroine Party, the Sunlight Party, the Starlight Party, the Bishoujo Party, the Wakaba Party, the Subculture New Party, and the SOS Party: idols from these seven idol political parties who have become Diet members representing each prefecture will crash through the sense of stagnation that surrounds Japan with their song and dance! They will bring back the people’s smiles and envelop Japan in their shining aura!
