Good morning from Anime Weekend Atlanta! As you guys may have noticed already, we announced 2 more titles yesterday that are coming to the Fall 2014 Lineup!

First up, known by shorthand as YuYuYu in Japanese, Yuki Yuna wa Yusha de Aru will be coming to Crunchyroll starting on Thursday, October 16 at 11:19 am Pacific Time, available to Crunchyroll members worldwide except for Asia.


Yuna Yuki is an ordinary second-year middle school student. She gets up in the morning, gets ready for school, goes to classes, participates in club activities, and has fun with her friends. But there is one extraordinary thing about Yuki -- she belongs to the “Brave Hero Club.” What does the Brave Hero Club do? Who is the mysterious being called “Vertex?” Yuki Yuna and her friends’ story takes place in Year 300, Era of the Gods.

The titular character Yuna Yuki is voiced by Haruka Terui, who previously also voiced Kobeni Yonomori from Engaged to the Unidentified. Suzuko Mimori, Rurumo from last season’s Magimoji Rurumo, plays Mimori Togo, Tomoyo Kurosawa, who also voiced Tina Sprout from Black Bullet, stars as Itsuki Inubozaki, and Yumi Uchiyama, also known for playing Kirishima from Arpeggio of Blue Steel, will voice Fu Inubozaki.

Next up, also from the newly-formed PONYCAN USA, comes DENKI-GAI, also known in Japan as Denki-gan no Honya-san.

DENKI-GAI will be available to Crunchyroll audiences worldwide except for Asia, and will launch on Thursday, October 2 at 7:30am Pacific Time.


A blush-inducing, coming-of-age comedy about manga-loving book store employees! The unique cast of characters -- all hard-core manga fans and maniacs of some sort - work at the “Books Umanohone” comic shop. On a daily basis, they display new releases, shrink-wrap comics, shudder at their lack of feminine qualities, question their love for porn literature, and basically have fun while working hard. Girls and guys call each other by nicknames and some begin to develop close relationships!

The cast of employees features Natsumi Takamori as Hiotan, Minami Tsuda as Sensei, Ayana Taketasu as Fu-girl, Mai Aizawa as Kameko, Satomi Sato as Tsumorin, Yu Kobayashi as G-men, Ryota Osaka as Umio, Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as Kantoku, and Takahiro Tomita as Sommelier. Animation Production is by the studio behind numerous long-running and famous titles such as the Doraemon series and Crayon Shin-chan movies, Shinei Animation.

And finally, we're excited to announce final details of Ohji Hiroi's latest project, Karen Senki! The premiere will be happening live at Anime Weekend Atlanta, with a special Q&A with creator Ohji Hiroi afterwards! For those of you watching on Crunchyroll, you can expect to see it starting on Saturday, September 27 at 8am Pacific Time, and it will be available to all Crunchyroll members WORLDWIDE except Japan and Korea.


Karen Senki is the second CG animated series co-developed by Hiroi and Fujishima after Sakura Wars. In the post apocalyptic aftermath of a war between machines and their creators, machines rule while humans exist in a state of servitude. Titular character Karen leads Resistance Group 11, an eclectic group of humans who find themselves fighting for their lives as they are hunted by the robots in each episode. Is this the end of humanity? Are they fighting a losing battle? Through Karen, we delve into a struggle between right and wrong, between indifference and love that explores some of the deepest questions about humanity. What is the difference between a thinking machine and a human being What is a soul?




Don't forget to keep checking back to Crunchyroll as we continue to make announcements for the upcoming Fall 2014 season!

The Yuki Yuna VA cast is filled with cuteness! Loved all their previous characters, with Suzuko Mimori being one of my favorite VAs. Can't wait to hear all their cute voices.

CR will NOT actually tell you yes or no until they announce it.

That being said however, it has already been announced by Aniplex that both will be on CR, so no worries.

-edit-
And it looks like they already did announce them, just awhile back
At least UBW was "technically announced", the YLIA article states it in the article, but not the title.
