Hey everyone!

Michana here taking over the thread with one more announcement for today.

We've just added the sequel to Chihayafuru with the second season, Chihayafuru 2, which is set to broadcast this Friday, Jan. 11th at 12pm PST.



Chihayafuru 2 will be available in the following territories: USA, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand.

Now in their second year of high school, Chihaya and her friends share all the fun and worries that come with welcoming underclassmen to the team as they face tough rival schools. The passion of the Mizusawa Karuta Club burns hotter than ever, but with the same refreshing, youthful mood carrying over from the first season.

Whats up everyone,

Keikawa here, hijacking lugiamania's thread with more new simulcast title announcements!

Let's continue our announcements with the addition of Senyu which is set to commence its broadcast on Tuesday January 8, at 10:0 0 am Pacific Time. Senyu will be available to worldwide to Crunchyroll premium members except for Japan. This series will also be available to free users worldwide, except for Asia.



To whet your appetite for this new series:
“Long ago, there lived an evil being who reigned over the world through fear, called Satan Rchimedes. He invaded the human world with his many demon underlings, spreading madness and chaos everywhere. One thousand years ago, this menace was sealed by the hero Creation, and peace returned to the world.

Then, one day, a great hole suddenly appeared on the surface of the world, and a vast number of demons appeared. The king discerned that the menace Satan had returned after being sealed away for a thousand years, and decided to send the hero's descendants to battle him. He found 75 men. As one thousand years had passed, you see, it was difficult to tell who the hero's descendants were.

So the king declared that he would grant the title of "true hero" and great fortune to the one who defeated Satan, and ordered the new hero, Alba, and his warrior attendant, Ross, on a quest to bring down the evil Satan.

Though he struggles with lesser monsters and is even nearly killed by his partner Ross, Alba's quest to polish his fighting skills leads him to new places and new meetings that he had never expected. Battles, laughter, and emotional moments enhance this adventure tale of an incompetent hero and a sadistic warrior!”

For Amnesia, this is actually a title that I (lugiamania) am personally very excited for myself (and from the previous posts in the new title announcements, a lot of you guys are waiting for this one too!) It was difficult waiting for when I could talk about it, but now I finally can! AMNESIA will be streaming on Crunchyroll this winter season!!


AMNESIA will be airing on Crunchyroll TOMORROW, Tuesday, January 8, 2013, starting at 7:30am PST, and will be available to Crunchyroll's audience in the following territories: USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Netherlands & Scandinavia.

AMNESIA is based on the visual novel game of the same name, originally released for the PlayStation Portable. In the game, the main character is a girl who wakes up with amnesia, and is helped by a spirit named Orion who guides her as she attempts to regain her memory. Being a dating-sim type of game, there are five different guys she can end up with, depending on the choices of the player.

The cast from the game return for the anime as well, with Tetsuya Kakihara, Kishou Taniyama, Satoshi Hino, Akira Ishida, and Kouki Miyata as the five male leads. Kaori Nazuka, Nunnally from Code Geass, is cast as the lead heroine, and Hiromi Igarashi, who was Aoi Hyoudou from Maid Sama! will be voicing her guide Orion. AMNESIA is being animated by the studio Brains Base, who also did last season's popular My Little Monster anime. NicoNico-singer-turned-professional Nagi Yanagi will be providing the show's opening song, “Zoetrope”, while the ending theme is “Recall” by Ray.

Our winter announcements aren't over yet, so keep your eyes glued to Crunchyroll for more!

With the exception of Jigoku Youchien, which is flash-animated shorts on Nico Nico, the next 3 unlicensed (as far as we know) series to premiere are:

Senyuu. (TV Tokyo) [5 minute episodes]
Tamako Market
GJ-bu (NTV)

If CR announces Chihayafuru 2 today, I expect that means they are very close to the end of what they will license for the season (likely with one or two stragglers coming in late). Otherwise, I would expect them to add one or two more "?" boxes to the lineup page.
