It’s time to d-d-duel once again! (Do people still say that? Eh, probably not.)
Earlier today, Crunchyroll announced that they added Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V to their digital anime catalog. The first fifteen episodes were added today, for users in all regions outside of Asia.
Crunchyroll will roll out the remaining episodes as follows:
- 11/22/2016: Episodes 16-30
- 11/29/2016: Episodes 31-40
In December, Crunchyroll will start adding five episodes per week every Tuesday at 2:00PM Pacific (5:00PM Eastern).
Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V began airing on Japanese TV in April 2014. The ongoing series is being helmed by Katsumi Ono (Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s, Senki Zesshō Symphogear G) at studio Gallop, with Akemi Yokota providing character designs. Tsutomu Kamishiro (Hunter × Hunter, Ghost Hunt) is in charge of series composition.
The series aired in North America both on the US’s Nicktoons network and Canada’s Teletoon. Crunchyroll describes the show as:
Swing into action with Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V!
Yuya Sakaki’s dream is to follow in his father’s footsteps and become the greatest “duel-tainer” in history – and he just might pull it off when he suddenly discovers Pendulum Summoning, a never-before-seen technique that lets him summon many monsters at once! But when countless rivals emerge to steal his spotlight, Yuya needs to gear up his game because dueling has evolved into a non-stop world of action!
In the all-new Action Duels, monsters literally come to life with advancements in holographic technology! Duelists no longer stand by and let their monsters battle for them on the playing field – they now ride their monsters as they race through real locations to take down their opponents with their Action Cards! From exotic castles to dense jungles, Yuya and his friends better prepare for any possibility because there’s no telling where the next battle will be!
