Hey Guys,

We've got some more animated Manga 2.5 coming your way today at NOON Pacific Time! Both The Mythical Detective Loki (Manga 2.5) and Karasuma Kyoko no Jikenbo (Manga 2.5) titles will be available to Crunchyroll members WORLDWIDE ex Japan, and are available right off the bat for Premium members. Free users will be able to view the series in one month.


Private Investigator Loki, the Norse god of mischief, has been exiled to the human world by the god Odin for reasons that he doesn't understand. Along with being exiled, Loki is forced to take the form of a human child, and the only way he can return to the realm of the gods is by collecting the evil auras which take over human hearts. In order to do this, he starts a detective agency which specializes in the paranormal. While his boyish good looks disguise his true nature, no challenge is too tough for Loki. He digs up evidence surrounding kidnappings, murders, suicide, and the like. Not only is it Loki’s job to solve mysteries, but he must also protect his own interest, namely his family, especially when those who want him rubbed-out enter the picture. When old adversaries strike too close to home, Loki must prepare, not only to solve the crime, but to survive the vicious attacks. If the action’s hot, you can count on Loki being there.

Loki is assisted by his loyal companion Yamino and the pair are soon joined by a human girl named Mayura who is manic for mysteries and often unwittingly assists him in catching the auras. As time passes, however, soon other Norse gods begin to appear, and most have the intent to assassinate Loki for reasons unclear.

Wow, I remember when this manga first came out...

Can't say I'm excited for manga 2.5 additions. I was more hoping for normal mangas. Nevertheless I will check it out once it's released.

Still nice to see CR expanding their manga library!

I prefer the ones with Japanese voice acting, but I already saw Karasuma Kyoko, and like it. I just would have liked it more with smoother voice acting, even in Japanese, and either subtitles or text bubbles.

Yup, that would follow. Also people who hate dubs wouldn't like the dubbed ones, people who hate subs wouldn't like the subbed ones.

I'd recommend Kim So Roo to someone who likes historical K-dramas, but not to someone who doesn't like K-dramas or doesn't like historical series.

Similarly I'd recommend Karasuma Kyoko to someone who likes motion comics and likes, or at least can tolerate, English dubbed material, but obviously people who don't like motion comics would be expected to give it a miss.

If you've ever seen motion comics, it is the same thing. Think of it as a step between manga and anime.

I wanted to try out Jikenbo... but the English voice overs were dreadful. lol I'm not a purist, I will watch dubbed anime, but this was horrible.
