To wrap up our announcements for today, we've got Nanana's Buried Treasure joining the Spring 2014 Lineup!

Nanana's Buried Treasure will start on Thursday April 10, at 11:30 am Pacific Time, and will be available to Crunchyroll members in the following territories: North and South America, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, the Middle East, the Arab League, and Europe excluding France, Switzerland, Belgium, Algeria, Monaco, Tunisia, Germany, Luxembourg, Austria, Liechtenstein, and Italy.


Based on the award-winning light novel by Kazuma Ootorino, Nanana’s Buried Treasure focuses on Jyugo Yama, a boy who was disowned by his father and forced to transfer to a high school on an artificial island. He begins to live by himself, only to discover his room is haunted by the ghost named Nanana Ryugajou. She was murdered ten years ago and cannot rest in peace until her killer is found. Before her death, Nanana collected things from all over the world and hid them on the island. Jyugo and Nanana set out to find these treasures and use their mysterious powers to find the culprit of the murder.

Rui Tanabe, known for her work as Wizard Barristers’ Benmashi, will star as Nanana Ryugajou, while Yuki Ono, who has voiced Valvrave the Liberator's Kyuma, will play Jyugo Yama.

We're still going strong with the announcements! Ping Pong the Animation will be joining the Crunchyroll Lineup starting on Thursday, April 10 at 10an Pacific Time.

Ping Pong the Animation will be available to Crunchyroll audiences in the following territories: Europe (excluding Russia and UK), Algeria, Bahrain, Comoros, Djibouti, Egypt, Eritrea, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates, Yemen, Cyprus, Iran, and Israel.

*Please note that there is a 6-month holdback for French-speaking regions.


Based on the manga of the same name by Taiyou Matsumoto, Ping Pong the Animation will be turned into anime for the first time and aired in Fuji TV’s powerhouse block, noitaminA. It is about high school student Yukata Hoshino, nicknamed Peco. He and his childhood friend, Makoto Tsukimoto, nicknamed Smile, are both part of the local table tennis club and are both naturally inclined towards the sport, although Smile’s quiet personality keeps him from winning against Peco. The club’s teacher takes note of this and tries to develop Smile’s talents and change his attitude towards table tennis.

Director Masaaki Yuasa, who previously worked on the highly acclaimed film “Mind Game” and other titles such as the crowd-funded Kick-Heart, will be helming up the series, and Tasunoko Production, whose other works includes Gatchaman Crowds, will be handling the animation production. Newcomer Fukujuro Katayama will be starring as Peco, and Kouki Uchiyama, also known as Ichika Orimura from Infinite Stratos, is cast as Smile.

aand with announcement number 2 of the day, Is the Order a Rabbit? will be joining the lineup starting on Thursday, April 10 at 7:30am Pacific Time.

Kokoa arrives in a new town in spring to start high school, but she gets lost and pops into a coffee shop called "Rabbit House", which turns out to be where she will live. All the people there are so cute - tiny but cool Chino, soldierly Lize, gentle and Japanese Chiyo, and sophisticated-but down-to-earth Sharo. They are joined by Chino's classmates Maya and Megu, and a regular at the shop, Mr. Blue-Mountain Aoyama. Everything is so cute every day at Rabbit House!

Based off of an original four-panel manga by Koi, Is the Order a Rabbit? stars Ayane Sakura, also known for her role as Akane Isshiki in Vividred Operation, as main character Kokoa. She is joined by Inori Minase, who also voiced Gre-chan in Robot Girls Z, as Chino, Maaya Uchida, Hajime Ichinose from Gatchaman Crowds, as Sharo, Risa Taneda, also known for her role as Yukina Himeragi in Strike the Blood, as Lize, and Satomi Sato, Wendy from Fairy Tail, as Chiyo.

Good morning everyone! We're kicking off even more announcements today with Dai-Shogun - Great Revolution joining the Spring 2014 Lineup!!

Episode 1 will be launching TODAY at 11:30pm, and all subsequent episodes will be airing on Wednesdays at 11:30am Pacific Time.

Dai-Shogun - Great Revolution will be available to Crunchyroll members in the following territories: U.S.A, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Netherlands, Turkey, Latin America (Central and South America including Caribbean), Europe (excluding German speaking territories), the Arab League, and the Middle East.


In the Edo Period, three black ships have come from overseas to force Japan out of its isolation. However thanks to the giant robots, Onigami, Japan has driven the ships away. The story is of a Japan that never experienced the Meiji Restoration and remained secluded from the rest of the world. The main character Keiichiro Tokugawa is an ambitious man who aims to unite Japan despite having a condition that causes him to break into hives when he touches a woman.

Project-D is credited with the original story, and Dai Sato (Eureka Seven, Freedom, episodes of Cowboy Bebop) is in charge of the series scripts. The titular lead, Keiichiro, will be voiced by Tetsuya Kakihara, also known for his role as Natsu from Fairy Tail. He is joined by Samurai Champloo’s Fuu, voice actress Ayako Kawasumi, who will be playing Kiriko Hattori.

3 more announcements. Wow. I think I know what one of them is and if possible, I think the remaining 2 will both air tomorrow. If that's the case, then tomorrow will be a pretty packed season here not to mention with the shows already announced.

Yeah! I went "wow" at the 3 more announcements too. But I'm wondering if any of them might be JDrama. If they are all anime, then it's like "what didn't CR get!?" (rhetorical question.)

In news from elsewhere, Funimation announced Date A Live II as expected (although a day earlier than I had anticipated), and confirmed that is all by starting off with "It’s time for our final announcement!" in their blog

As I recall, last season there were only 2 series that didn't get simulcast either by CR or Funimation that were full-length (not short form) series of at least 1 cour in length.

I just checked to see what is left to announce, anime wise.. and there really isn't much to announce. It's a toss up a few more adult oriented titles mixed with the unannounced kids anime titles.

So it'll be interesting to see what the three they plan to announce for today are.

EDIT: Oh right, I forgot Crunchyroll didn't formally announce some of those above titles just yet. Still, I'm curious.
