aand for a title that many of you have been waiting for, Black Bullet will be airing on Crunchyroll on Tuesday April 8, at 9:30am Pacific Time for members in the following territories: USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Netherlands, Scandinavia, Turkey, Latin America, Italy, Spain, Portugal, the Middle East, the Arab League, France and DOM/TOM, Belgium, Switzerland, Andorra, Luxembourg, Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco.

*Please note that French-speak territories will have a 6-month holdback.


Based on the light novel written by Shiden Kanzaki and illustrated by Saki Ukai, Black Bullet takes place in an alternate future where mankind was defeated by a parasitic virus, called Gastrea. Humanity is now forced to live within walls made of material that is able to subdue the Gastrea virus. Soon, children with the ability to control the Gastrea virus, a consequence of being born with the virus inside them, are discovered, and are used to fight against the Gastrea in Civil Securities teams that pair them with a normal human.

Yuuki Kaji, Eren from Attack on Titan fame, stars as the main male lead, Rentaro Satomi, a normal human paired up with Enju Aihara, played by Rina Hidaka, also known for her role as Silica in Sword Art Online. The opening theme song is “black bullet” by fripSide, and famed Nico-singer-turned-professional Nagi Yanagi sings “Tokohana” as the ending theme.

Gooood morning and we're going to hit the ground running this week with the addition of The Comic Artist and His Assistants starting TODAY at 12:05pm Pacific Time! All subsequent episodes will be airing every Monday at 10:05am Pacific Time.

The Comic Artist and His Assistants will be available to Crunchyroll members in the following territories: USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Netherlands, Scandinavia, Turkey, Latin America, France and DOM/TOM, Belgium, Switzerland, Andorra, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Austria, Liechtenstein, Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic, Romania, the Middle East and the Arab League.


Originally a 4-panel manga by Hiroyuki, The Comic Artist and His Assistants focuses on mangaka Yuuki Aito, who has trouble understanding the feelings of the characters in his own manga. In order to be able to realistically portray his characters, he asks for the help of his assistant, Ashisu Sahoto, who would do anything to help him—even going so far as to let him grope her so he knows what it feels like.

Voice actor Yoshitsugu Matsuoka, known for his roles as Shinji Kanemaru in Ace of the Diamond and Kirito from Sword Art Online, stars as the main character Yuuki, with voice actress Saori Hayami, Ayase Aragaki from Oreimo and Wako Agemaki from Star Driver, as assistant Ashisu. Both the opening theme and ending theme will be performed by the voice-actress idol-group, StylipS.

Yay!!! I'm sad that it is only going to be 13 mins, but it will be better than a 2-5 min show. But I can probably admit there isn't enough going on to warrant a full 22+ min episode for this show. Still, looking forward to this one!

I saw it in the second paragraph here:
http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2014-04-07/crunchyroll-adds-the-comic-artist-and-assistants-anime-shorts

I thought perhaps you meant you had mentioned it further up in this same topic and I had missed that, but that wasn't it either.

Color me confused.

-lol-
It was a complete faux pas on my part.
I oddly confused this one with a YTV series from a couple days ago.

It seems basically equivalent to the longer segment in Squid Girl when they did three segments per normal length show. Its probably a pretty good length for a lot of 4koma manga.

After watching it, the length strikes me as better for the material than a full length, since its two minute bits strung together, and better than a short, since they are strung together. Also after watching it, its not going in my queue.

The already announced GTO Joe spin-off, GTO Joe Taiwan, is:

USA,Canada, South Africa, Central and South America (including the Caribbean), Europe (including French-speaking and German-speaking world, but excluding Russia), Australia, and New Zealand.


... while Special Defense Bureau is

United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Denmark, Finland, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, and South America.


Either of those (or a mix) would be a massive increase in the typical region access for dramas.
