Crunchyroll Adds "Chargeman Ken" to Anime Catalog

Series goes live today at 4:00pm Pacific Time!

The latest addition to Crunchyroll's catalog is a true blast from the past. Starting today at 4:00pm Pacific Time, you'll be able to dig into the 1974 Chargeman Ken anime! 

 

Chargeman Ken will be available to Crunchyroll members in the United States and Canada. 

 

 

Synopsis: 

Infamous among anime fans in Japan, this 1974 series by Knack Productions is known for its nonsensical plots, absurdly incompetent animation, and brutal 10-year-old hero. See young Ken Izumi gun down wave after wave of ineffectual aliens, while dealing with misaligned animation cels, repetitive music, and a near total lack of sound effects. The best joke is that none of this was meant as a joke.
