Crunchyroll’s here to make sure this day isn’t an unhappy one… even for Anne Happy!
Earlier today, Crunchyroll announced that they will stream both Twin Star Exorcists (Sōsei no Onmyōji) and Anne-Happy (Unhappy♪ / Unhappy Go Lucky!) as they air in Japan. Twin Star Exorcist will begin airing on April 6, at 4:00AM Pacific (7:00AM Eastern) in all regions outside of Asia. Anne-Happy will kick off on April 7, at 7:00AM Pacific (11:00AM Eastern) in all regions outside of Asia.
Twin Star Exorcists is based on Yoshiaki Sukeno’s manga series of the same name. Tomohisa Taguchi (Persona 4 the Golden Animation) is directing the series at Studio Pierrot, with Tatsuya Igarashi (Haganai) serving as sub-director on the project. Kikuko Sadakata (Corpse Princess) is providing character designs, while Naruhisa Arakawa (Outbreak Company, Steel Angel Kurumi) tackles series composition.
Crunchyroll describes the show as follows:
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!
Anne-Happy is based on Cotoji’s Unhappy Go Lucky! manga series. Shin Oonuma (Watamote, Baka and Test) is directing the series at Silver Link, while Miwa Oshima (Baka and Test) fills the dual role of character designer and chief animation director. Go! Princess Precure writer Hitoshi Tanaka will write the scripts.
Crunchyroll describes the series as follows:
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…
