Directed by Susumu Mitsunaka at Production I.G. and based off the manga by Haruichi Furudate in Weekly Shounen Jump since February 2012, Crunchyroll describes the series as:

HAIKYU!! 3rd Season picks up where the second season ended: the boys prepare to finally face off for the right to represent the prefecture in the volleyball national championship. Despite being known as “The Fallen Champions,” Karasuno is determined to take down the powerhouse that is the Shiratorizawa High volleyball team. As Hinata comes closer to fulfilling his promise to defeat Ushijima’s team, will the “Flightless Crows” finally find their wings and soar above the best school in the prefecture?


Next up is Poco’s Udon World which Crunchyroll will stream Saturdays starting October 8 @ 12:00 PM PT in US, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Scandaniva, and Central and South America including the Caribbean. Directed by Yoshihide Ibata at LIDENFILMS and based off the manga by Nodoka Shinomaru which has been running in Comic@Bunch since June 2012, Crunchyroll describes the series as:

In Poco’s Udon World Souta Tawara, 30 years old. On a visit to his hometown, he meets a strange child who loves udon and frogs… and has ears and a tail?!

Souta Tawara is a web designer living in Tokyo. Back in his hometown after his father’s death, he finds a child sleeping inside an iron pot in the family udon restaurant.

Although ordinary at first glance, it turns out that this little tyke is actually a tanuki in a human disguise!

So begins the tale of a gentle, warm, and slightly weird family in Kagawa prefecture, better known as “Udon prefecture,” where time passes at a less hurried pace than in the big city…


Next up is SENGOKUCHOJYUGIGA which Crunchyroll will stream Saturdays starting October 8 @ 10:45 AM PT worldwide except Asia. An original anime from ILCA which Crunchyroll describes as:

In SENGOKUCHOJYUGIGA, popular young actors and a unique cast come together to have fun messing around and playing the roles of samurai generals. SENGOKUCHOJYUGIGA is an anime that plays around with both Japan’s history and the generals of Japan’s sengoku period!
