Hello and welcome back from our convention-packed weekend here at Crunchyroll! As many of you know, we had a whole slew of announcements and titles, so check out the details below!

Frenemy -Rumble of the Rat- is a new J-Drama featuring 2 members of the popular music group, EXILE! The first 6 episodes are available for All-Access and Drama Premium members, and the remaining half will be launching next Monday at 2pm Pacific Time. Free memebers will be able to catch up with 3 episodes released each Monday at the same time.

Frenemy -Rumble of the Rat- will be available to Crunchyroll members in the following territories: US, Canada, Central and South America including Caribbean, Europe (excluding Territories), South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand.


Ever since the day his father left, Natsuo’s (Shokichi / EXILE) world was turned into a living hell. When he is taken into custody by a relative, Natsuo is separated from his younger sister and his best friend, Wataru (Naoto / EXILE). From there, he would be abused at home and bullied at school for years. While the years matured Natsuo into a young man, his life was still nothing but a disgrace until he is taken under the wing of Kogure (Satoshi Jinbo), a yakuza leader. Soon, Kogure appoints Natsuo as a manager of a trashy night club; it is Natsuo’s first real chance to make something of his life. But Natsuo is unaware that Kogure, the man whom he confided in, is using him as a pawn in an outrageous bet—a bet that concerns his life!

On Natsuo’s first day at the night club, Wataru, his long-lost friend, walks through the door. Natsuo learns that Wataru is out of a job and hires him, but the gullible Natsuo does not question whether their reunion is pure coincidence or not… Elsewhere, the police investigation led by a female detective is planning to strike Kogure’s crime organization and has appointed an agent, or otherwise known as a “rat”, to go undercover…Who is the rat? And what will happen to the bet…and of Natsuo’s fate?

Shokichi and Naoto, who play the parts of Natsuo and Wataru, are both talented performers in one of the most popular dance and music groups, EXILE. It is Shokichi’s first leading role as an actor. Fans in Japan and abroad are sure to find new exciting aspects of the EXILE duo as they enact together in Frenemy -Rumble of the Rat-, an action-filled story of the dark underground world where friends and enemies can often be just two sides of the same coin.

Next up, we have No Dropping Out -Back to School at 35- starting next Tuesday, June 3 at 4pm Pacific Time, available to Crunchyroll members in the following territories: US, Canada, Central and South America including Caribbean, Europe (excluding Territories), South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand.


Heads turn and jaws drop as gorgeous 35-year-old Ayako Baba (Ryoko Yonekura) suddenly appears on the first day of Kunikida High. Her fabulous clothes and stunning figure set off a firestorm of speculation. Is she another one of those annoying diva moms?! Or is she a new teacher?! Everyone is shocked beyond belief when they find out that Ayako is in fact a new student!

Students don’t know where to place Ayako in the brutal “caste system” that plagues the school. Twice their age yet wearing the same uniform, she’s seen as a ridiculous hag and an easy target for attacks. Normally, she would probably be in the lowest “caste”, along with those that are bullied by the delinquents in the highest rank. Kids in the middle of the pecking order live in constant fear of being downgraded and are preoccupied with winning the favor of those above them. But fearless Ayako quickly proves she’s undaunted by this bizarre system and the harsh bullying. Instead of turning a blind eye, Ayako springs into action and does whatever it takes to help her suffering classmates, even if it means eating lunch in a bathroom stall to keep a bullied girl company. Just what is this 35-year-old student all about?! Smart and seemingly well-off, why did Ayako even come back to school at that age?!

For all you Jojo fans out there, we've got 3 episodes of the season 1 compilation episodes, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Re-Edited for you to relive the awesomeness that is Jonathan and Joseph Joestar's crazy adventure! All 3 episodes will be launching with this week's new Stardust Crusaders episode, Friday at 9:30am Pacific Time.


Part 1 - Phantom Blood

In ancient Mexico, people of Aztec had prospered. They had historic and strange "Stone Mask". It was a miraculous mask which brings eternal life and the power of authentic ruler. But the mask suddenly disappeared.

A long time after that, in late 19th centuries when the thought and life of people were suddenly changing, Jonathan Joestar met with Dio Brando―. They spend time together through boyhood to youth, and the "Stone Mask" brings curious fate to them―.

Part 2 - Battle Tendency

It’s been 49 years from Jonathan’s death. Time has been passed and generations have been alternated. Speedwagon became an oil tycoon established a foundation. Straizo is now the successor of ripple users taking over from his old master Tonpetty. At that time, a mysterious mummy was found at ruins in Mexico by archaeological diggers who Speedwagon’s foundation sent. Beside the mummy, relief of the hateful Stone Mask has been carved…!

The relation between the Joestars and the Stone Mask has not ended yet…!
