Crunchyroll To Stream “You’re Being Summoned, Azazel”, “Sketchbook ~full color’s~”

It looks like Crunchyroll’s adding something for everyone today!

Earlier today, Crunchyroll added two titles to their streaming lineup. Both You’re Being Summoned, Azazel (Yondemasuyo, Azazel-san) and Sketchbook ~full color’s~ were added to the company’s platform for members in the United States and Canada. Both shows are available in their entirety for Premium subscribers.

Free members can catch the first season of You’re Being Summoned, Azazel today, with its second season and Sketchbook ~full color’s~ hitting next week.

Azazel-san Visual 001 - 20160511

You’re Being Summoned, Azazel is based on Yasuhisa Kubo’s manga of the same name. The series was directed by Tsutomu Mizushima (Blood-C, Prison School) at Production I.G., with Junichiro Taniguchi (Genshiken: Second Generation, Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun) providing character designs.

Crunchyroll describes the series as:

Have a stalker you just can’t shake? Fear your spouse is being unfaithful? You might consider hiring Akutabe, a detective who summons demons to do his dirty work. While his methods might seem unorthodox, he always gets results. However, as powerful as Akutabe is, manipulating demons is delicate art. His new part-time employee Sakuma, a young college girl, doesn’t get to spend too much time exploring the finer points of controlling demons before Akutabe forces her into a demonic contract with Azazel. Azazel is lazy, lustful and depraved… Everything you’d expect a demon to be. Sakuma needs to keep Azazel on a tight leash, but to do that, she may have to dabble in a little depravity herself.

Sketchbook Full Colors Visual 001 - 20160511

Sketchbook ~full color’s~ is based on Totan Kobako’s Sketchbook manga. The series was helmed by Yoshimasa Hiraike (Kaleido Star, Wagnaria!!) at Hal Film Maker, with Isao Sugimoto (Girls und Panzer, Ultimate Otaku Teacher) providing character designs. Mari Okada (Black Butler, Kiznaiver) took charge of series composition and wrote the scripts.

Crunchyroll describes the series as:

No matter where she goes, Sora takes her sketchbook along. The world is full of mysterious and beautiful things, after all, and Sora doesn’t want to miss a single one. The best way she knows to capture each moment is by drawing and sketching, watching and learning. However, though Sora is full of wonder, she’s also incredibly shy. She doesn’t have many friends, except for her fellow classmates in the Art Club. But even though they all seem to be slightly crazy (the teacher included), each of them adds another bright color to Sora’s world.

Both titles are licensed by Right Stuf in North America.
