Hey guys, lugiamania here live from Sakura-Con with 2 new additions to our Spring 2014 Lineup!

For those of us that were at our panel earlier, we announced both World Fool News and Future Card Buddyfight coming to Crunchyroll!

World Fool News will be starting next Thursday, April 24 at 7:00am Pacific Time with episodes 1 and 2, and will be available to Crunchyroll users WORLDWIDE ex Japan!


Takahashi is transferred to a main anchor of a news program, which is known for being a little...weird. This is a comedy about somewhat ridiculous happenings occurring at a broadcasting station.

For those of you who have been asking about dubbed anime on Crunchyroll, we will be getting the dubbed version of Future Card Buddyfight, with all 16 episodes available at launch along with the latest simulcast episode starting on Friday, April 25 at 4:30pm Pacific Time, and will be available to Crunchyroll members WORLDWIDE ex Japan, Malaysia, and Singapore.


It is the year 2030, and the stage is the capital of Japan, Chou-Tokyo.

Through “Buddyfight”, humans have started cultural interactions with residents from other worlds called “Affinity Dimensions”. Buddyfight is a game with selected humans as the “Buddyfighter”, and residents from the other world as the partner (known as “Buddy Monster”). These battles have high significance and sometimes it is even used to decide the fate of a nation, and naturally there are those who seek to use the Buddy Monsters for evil purposes.

Gao Mikado is a 6th year elementary student at Aibo Academy. He really likes Buddyfight, and hopes to have a Buddy Monster someday. One fine day, Gao rescues a boy from some hooligans out of kindness, and this act catches the attention of a monster from the other world. This monster happens to be “Drum Bunker Dragon”, son of a hero from Dragon World. Drum takes a liking to the unconventional Gao, and forms a pact with him as a buddy.

This is the story of their journey, and the deep bonds they forge with each other, as well as the various friends they meet along the way!

We hope you guys are enjoying the Spring 2014 season as much as we are!

No ??/?? at the end of the simulcast list and no unfilled [?] boxes in the new simulcast part of the lineup normally means that is the end of the announcement season ... though sometimes there are late contracts still being negotiated.

Note that Daisuki has already announced M3, at their site, their YouTube channel, and at Viki, though none of that rules out Crunchyroll, since Crunchyroll has shared streams with both Daisuki and with Viki before.

I'm curious why World Fool News is listed as a simulcast when it originally streamed from April - May 2013. Is it airing on TV somewhere in Japan now?

It is, actually, and this version is a bit different than the one originally aired. We're simulcasting with the GTV one: http://www.gtv.co.jp/program/animation/

Out of curiosity, while I am glad that Future Card Buddyfight will be available on Crunchyroll, I was wondering if there would be any possibility to trying to get a simulcast with the Japanese audio with subtitles, like how Cardfight Vanguard has both a dub and sub version available (Though dub is restricted to youtube, for now). I'm really happy that they're dubbing the show at the same time as Japan airs it, as it's something I'd like to see more companies try to do more often. Still, I couldn't help but wonder if it'd be possible to get the Japanese version up as well.

World Fool news looks more like a cartoon then anime.

Ah, I don't read Japanese, but I do see 22:00~22:15. Is that more like 15min than 7min, or is it still under 10min after the ad breaks are taken out?

Its animated. In Japan. That's pretty much what "anime" means, no?

No wonder the new episode of WFN on Anime Bancho's Youtube channel isn't subbed. I'm liking this news since the first season of this was fairly enjoyable.

You got a lot of shows this season which is nice and all but the show I was looking forward to the most is not here so I'm disappointed.
