So fanservice and mecha. It looks like Crunchyroll’s ready for an interesting weekend.
Last night, Crunchyroll announced that two new titles will join the company’s digital lineup. Both Aquarion and Senran Kagura were added to in their entirety in subtitled format.
Senran Kagura is available to users in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, and South Africa.
The 2013 series is based on Enterbrain’s video game franchise of the same name. Takashi Watanabe (The Slayers, Freezing) directed the title at studio Artland, with Takafumi Torii providing character designs. Takao Yoshioka (High School DxD, Watamote) was in charge of series composition and wrote the screenplay.
Crunchyroll describes Senran Kagura as:
Super cute Asuka and her curvy companions appear to be your typical high school students, but they’ve got an outrageous secret: they’re learning the wild ways of the ninja! Get a lesson in action, naughtiness, and sexy slapstick fun as Asuka’s gang takes on the toughest (and hottest) fighters in town! Fan service fanatics won’t want to miss a minute!
Aquarion is available to users in the United States and Canada.
The 2005 series is an original project from studio Satelight. Macross creator Shoji Kawamori (The Vision of Escaflowne, Spring and Chaos) directed the project, with Futoshi Fujikawa (Natsuki Crisis, Cleopatra D.C.) providing character designs. The team of Hiroshi Ohnogi (Birdy the Mighty: Decode, Kekkaishi) and Shoji Kawamori was in charge of series composition.
Crunchyroll describes Aquarion as:
Humanity is dominated by fear when the Shadow Angels invade after 12,000 years of slumber. There is hope, however—Mechanical Angel Aquarion, a fighting machine powered by the intertwined souls of pilots known as Elements. With prophecy being fulfilled, and the end of the world approaching, the last hope for the new century takes flight. For mankind to survive, one among the Elements must rise.
