To wrap things up for today, Crunchyroll is excited to add Soni-Ani SUPER SONICO THE ANIMATION to our Winter Lineup! Soni-Ani SUPER SONICO THE ANIMATION will be airing on Crunchyroll starting on Monday, January 6 at 9:00am Pacific Time, and will be available in the following territories: USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, South Africa, New Zealand, Australia, Scandinavia, the Netherlands, Latin America, Spain, Portugal, the Middle East, Turkey, Austria, Germany, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Belgium, Italy, Denmark, Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, France, and DOM-TOM, Andorra, Netherlands, Algeria, Tunisia, and Morocco.


An original anime based on gaming company Nitroplus’ popular mascot, Sonico, Soni-Ani SUPER SONICO THE ANIMATION features the titular character in a comedic slice-of-life series. Sonico’s backstory has her as a college student who somehow also manages to juggle being a model, game character, and a musician in a three-piece girl band as the vocalist and guitarist.

Voice actress Ayano Yamamoto, who also played Nae Tennoji from Steins;Gate, will be voicing Sonico, with Mai Goto, Mika Nogizaka in Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu, starring as bassist Suzu Fujimi, and Mami Ozaki, Hana Isuzu in GIRLS und PANZER, rounds out the band as drummer Furi Watanuki.

And here we go for announcement number 3: The Pilot's Love Song!!!

This new series is set to broadcast every Monday starting on January 6 at 7:00 am Pacific Time for its premium members with free members getting it one week later.

This series will be available to users in the following territories: United States of America, Canada, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Central America, South America, United Kingdom, Ireland, German speaking Europe, Sweden, Norway, Finland, and Denmark.



This installment of the franchise will take place before the events that unfolded in the hit feature series The Princess and the Pilot. It's sequel - The Pilot's Love Song - will feature two up-and-coming voice talents: Ryunosuke Kamiki (Howl's Moving Castle, Summer Wars) who will be portraying Charles Karino, and Seika Taketomi, who first professional voice acting role will be of Juana del Moral!

As a beautiful daughter of the noble family del Moral, Fana was proposed by Prince Carlo, who is the crown prince of their country Levamme. However, since Levamme is at war with Amatsuvian, the marriage had to wait until the war ends. Meanwhile, as a bestado, the lowest caste in Levamme, Charles had always dreamed of flying and eventually became the ace pilot of the air force. Although he was often mistreated, a glorious chance came about when the Amatsuvian bombarded del Moral's home in order to get rid of the future empress. Charles was then entrusted with the top secret mission of delivering the princess to the prince.

Good morning and Happy Monday!

We're kicking things off this morning with the addition of Nobunaga the Fool added to Crunchyroll's Winter 2014 Lineup! Starting on Sunday, January 5 at 12:15pm Pacific Time, Nobunaga the Fool will be available to Crunchyroll members in the following territories: USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand.


The East Star and the West Star... It is said that the separated stars were once connected by the supernatural chain called the “Dragon Stream.” Both stars enjoyed their own prosperity, but such a peaceful period came to end. They come to be bombarded by chaotic vibration of time, and entered into a series of war. Joanne d’Arc is born to save the world, the only person knowing the reanimation of a transcendence technology called “Shinki,” meaning God’s vessel. She foresees an emergence of deliverer and makes her way to the East, together with Leonardo da Vinci, the man of the insight. In the East, her foresight of “deliverer” refers to the most delinquent guy, Nobunaga Oda. Is Nobunaga is the true deliverer? Or, is he only the devastator?

And that's only our first announcement of the day! Make sure to keep checking back to Crunchyroll as we continue to roll out our Winter 2014 Lineup!

Fantasy comedy adventure. Its one I'm going to be adding to my queue, though since I only keep up with three to five in a season, only time will tell if it stays in my queue.

I read the description of Nobunaga the Fool and it said Leonardo da Vinci is in it. It seems like there are more and more non-Japanese historical figures in new shows. This last season we had Galileo
