Greetings fellow fans of Anime and Manga,

Not too long ago I read that they are going to animate, or have already animated a new season of Histories Strongest Disciple Kenichi, and I was wondering if anyone knows if Crunchy Roll either intends to carry it or will receive permisson to have the show available to all the eager fans of the Manga and the first season of the Anime.

I'm trying not to get my hopes up about it, but with the recent addition of One Piece, the second season of Fairy Tail as well as Hajime no Ippo, has made me a little more optimistic about certain shows finally getting the animated treatment.

So does anyone know if this might be a possibility or just wishful thinking?

I think Funimation already licensed so I don't think CR will be able to stream this here any time soon.

On another note, there is only one OVA left that still will air from the current season.

It's not a new season. It's a group of OVAs that was adapted from various volumes of the manga.

Hi! I'm glad you did get some useful information, but this was basically a personal request for information rather than a discussion topic, so I'm closing it.

For future reference:

CR users tend to share what they know about upcoming shows, and speculate about where they will be simulcast in "season" threads and in the The Current List of Greenlit Anime thread. The latest "season" thread is Summer 2014, so when you have questions like this, those are good threads to go to. If you are looking for those threads in the future, you can easily find links to them in The Show Discussion Index ("stickied" near the top of the Anime Forum).

Once it is known that Crunchyroll will carry a show, it is announced in CR's Site News forum. Sometimes the news will show up in CR's own News section or on other sites that carry anime news but it is rare that those sources report what titles CR will carry significantly earlier than they are announced on CR.

Finally, in general, if you have an anime-related question / request for information that you can't get the answer to in one of the above mentioned places, then you should post the question in The Anime Help Thread (it's also "stickied" near the top of the Anime Forum).

Oh, one more thing...if you want to give suggestions for titles that you want CR to get, you, as a premium member, can post those over in the CR Premium Member Group. Here's a direct link to the What series/movie/drama/manga would you like to see on CR? thread there!
