Whats up guys!

Keikawa here to jack Michana AND Lugiamania's thread to make ANOTHER announcement today: Flowers of Evil which set to broadcast every Monday starting on April 8, at 9:30 a.m. Pacific Time.



Based on the manga by Shuzo Oshimi, Flowers of Evil anime will feature the voice talents of Mariya Ise (in the role of Sawa Nakamura) and Yoko Hikasa (in the role of Nanako Saeki). Ms. Ise is notably known for her performances in hit series such as Hunter x Hunter, Bodacious Space Pirates, and Durarara!!, while Ms. Hikasa has a similar list of accolades with majors roles in Dog Days, K-ON!, and Inu X Boku Secret Service. This show will also mark the inaugural appearance of Shinichiro Ueda, as our other protagonist: Takao Kasuga.

Flowers of Evil revolves around Takao Kasuga, who is caught stealing Nanako Saeki's gym clothes by Sawa Nakamura whose cold attitude makes her generally disliked by everyone. In exchange for her silence, he makes a ‘contract’ with her, in which he must abide by all of her unreasonable demands. Initially torturous, Kasuga wants out until one day when things start to change between them...”

Flowers of Evil will be available in the following territories: U.S.A, Canada, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Denmark, Finland, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, and Central & South America.

Now let's jump back to Michana's announcement of:
Samurai Bride and will launch tomorrow, April 5th at 7:00pm Pacific time. It will be available in the United States and Canada.



The beauty of the nation of Japan tends at times to arouse the sadistic nature of evildoers. However, do not worry! Do not fear! Japan has its guardian gods, the Samurai! Hyakka Ryouran: a tale woven by beautiful samurai to tell of these noble souls!


Hey everyone! Good morning and get ready for another slew of announcements coming your way for Crunchyroll's Spring 2013 lineup!

First up this morning is the action-drama series about a boy who is obsessed with cutting people's hair, The Severing Crime Edge!

The Severing Crime Edge will be available on Crunchyroll starting Saturday, April 6, 2013 at 4:30pm Pacific Time, and will be available to audiences in the following territories: USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa.


The Severing Crime Edge is based on the original manga, Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge, written and illustrated by Tatsuhiko Hikagi. It centers around Kiri Haimura, a boy who is obsessed with cutting other people’s hair, and Iwai Mushanokouji, a girl whose long, beautiful hair is cursed so that no scissors can cut it. After a chance meeting between the two, Kiri gets pulled into an ancient murder game where Iwai is the target of the “Killing Goods” and their owners. Now it’s up to him to protect Iwai, “The Queen of Hair,” in this love-battle story!

The Severing Crime Edge is being directed by Yuji Yamaguchi, whose other notable works include Fate/stay night and Angel Links. Newcomer voice actress Kotori Koiwai, whose previous works include Kigurumi Harokitei in Joshiraku and Yuki Funahara in Psycho-Pass, will be starring as Iwai, and Natsuki Hanae, also known for his roles as Atsuhiro Maeda in Tari Tari and Sakagami in Oreshura, is playing the role of Kiri.

As always, we've got more announcements headed your way, so stay tuned to Crunchyroll to see what's coming next!

Yay for Crime Edge. Figured it would be delayed since it is a Media Factory show. Added it to my queue.

Samurai Bride is a second season? Will Crunchyroll be airing the second season or will I have to watch the first elsewhere? I hope its not a late announcement like it was for the AKB0048 anime especially since this Samurai Bride show seems way superior to the AKB0048 anime.

I know some people are not going to like that 12-hour delay for Samurai Bride. The regional restrictions make me think Samurai Girls is going to be a catalog title.

Crunchy is on a roll though!

Yes, its the second season to Samurai Girls. Since Samurai Girls was licensed by Sentai and distributed by Section23, and since Samurai Bride has the same North American region that Sentai used to sublicense to Crunchyroll, it seems a safe bet that Samurai Girls will be coming to Crunchyroll as a North American catalog title.

Also, Kaze licensed Samurai Girls in the UK and French speaking countries and Madman in Australia/NZ, so the odds are that DVD region R2 and R4 streaming rights were not available. If Anime on Demand hasn't shut down yet, maybe it will show up there for the UK., and if Madman picks up Samurai Bride, it'll likely be streamed on Madman's Screening Room sometime around the release.
