Crunchyroll’s manga lineup got a little more offbeat, dare I say funky today!
Earlier today, Crunchyroll announced that they acquired the domestic rights to three manga titles. The company added Arakawa Under the Bridge, Gugure! Kokkuri-san, and Cuticle Detective Inaba to its ever-expanding library.
Arakawa Under The Bridge is a 14-volume manga series by Saint Young Men creator Hikaru Nakamura. The series kicked off in the pages of Square Enix’s Young Gangan magazine in 2004. The series finished its run in the publication in July, and Square will release the final compiled volume on November 20.
Arakawa Under The Bridge received a two-season anime series, which aired in 2010’s spring and winter broadcast seasons. NIS America currently holds the rights to the anime series, which they offer on DVD and Blu-Ray. Crunchyroll is also streaming the series in its entirety.
Gugure! Kokkuri-san is an ongoing manga series by Midori Endō. The comedy series started running in Gangan Joker magazine in 2011. To date, ten collected volumes have been released.
An anime adaptation of Gugure! Kokkuri-san began airing on Japanese TV in October 2014. The series, which spanned 12 episodes, was directed by Yoshimasa Hiraike at TMS Entertainment.
Cuticle Detective Inaba is an ongoing series by Mochi. The title first greeted the world in Monthly GFantasy magazine in 2008. To date, 14 collected volumes have been released.
An 12-episode anime adaptation hit Japanese TV in the winter 2013 anime season. The show was directed by Susumu Nitsukawa at studio Zexcs.
Sentai Filmworks holds the domestic rights to the Cuticle Detective Inaba anime series. The company currently offers the title on DVD and Blu-Ray in North America. Crunchyroll is also streaming the series in its entirety on the company’s platform.
