She travels with an aim to avenge her master, Hong's death, of which vendetta was required by the rules of the tribe she belongs to.

Her target is Jin Varrel, an evil woman, who controls a mysterious power called "Dakki" and cruelly kills people. Alka has grown up as a member of an assassin group called "Tsurugi" and assassinates her targets without any hesitation. In a sense, Alka and Jin have a resembling character.

During her travel, Alka comes across with three brave women; Karen, a master of the traditional dance and martial arts, Hazuki, a drink-loving gun mania, and Roana, a head of robbers. Those four women were destined to encounter each another. Traveling with them, Alka recalls her master Hong‘s teachings.

Hong was invited as Alka’s mentor by the tribe , but on the other hand, he wanted her to escape and get discharged from the rules of the tribe and her destiny binding her since her birth. Alka gradually realizes the real meanings of Hong‘s teachings, and something in her mind begins to change.

The characters designs were produced by Hyung-tae Kim, who also worked on the stunning Korean game Magna Carta. Aoi Yūki (Puella Magi Madoka Magica's Madoka, Valvrave the Liberator's Akira) leads the cast as Jin Varrel. Ayahi Takagaki plays Dan Roana, Sora Amamiya plays Jin Hazuki, and Sayaka Ohara plays Elle Karen.

Good morning everyone! It's Thursday and we're kicking off today's announcements with One Week Friends, starting on Sunday, April 6 at 9:00am Pacific Time.

One Week Friends will be available to Crunchyroll audiences in the following territories: US and Canada.


Yuki Hase, a high school boy, is concerned about his classmate, Kaori Fujimiya. She always is alone and never tries to become close friends with anyone. Given half a chance one day, it seems that Yuki and Kaori have developed a good relationship that they begin to eat lunch together. Although they enjoy having conversations, Kaori, strangely enough, keeps denying their friendship. On that Friday, she confesses, “I have a memory disorder. My memories disappear within one week. Though I became friends with you, the memories I obtain this week will be all gone by next Monday. It's nothing but trouble, isn't it? That’s the reason why I gave up making friends.”

But Yuki’s response was opposite as she expected.

“Don’t! I will ask you hundreds, even thousands of times, to become friends with me. I won’t leave you alone. So please don’t give up.”

So starts Yuki’s bittersweet challenge, as his weeks come to start with asking Kaori, “Will you please become friends with me?”


And as always, we've got more coming down the pipeline, so stay tuned to Crunchyroll to see what else is coming Spring 2014!

That sucks. I guess the hope is that the news got it confused with a different announcement for today.

C'mon, toho, get with the freaking program ... you're letting down the team, licensing streaming for North American alone.

I got so exited when it said that Crunchyroll could stream this, because I really wanted to watch this. And then I felt that feeling of dissapointment when it says US and Canada only. To bad I live in the UK.
