And announcement number 2 of the day is none other than the fantasy-shoujo title, Akatsuki no Yona!

Akatsuki no Yona will start airing on Tuesday, October 7 at 8:00am Pacific Time for Crunchyroll members worldwide except for Asia.


Based on the manga of the same name by Mizuho Kusanagi, Akatsuki no Yona centers around the princess of the Kingdom of Kouka, Yona. Despite her father’s disapproval, she’s in love with and plans to marry her cousin, Soo-won. However, her world gets turned upside down on her 16th birthday, and she is forced to flee from the palace. Now, with her friend and bodyguard Hak, Yona must set out on a journey to find out and fulfill her destiny.

Chiwa Saito, also known for her role as Homura Akemi in Puella Magi Madoka Magica, stars as the main character Yona, Tomoaki Maeno, who also voices Naotsugu in Log Horizon 2, plays Hak, and Yusuke Kobayashi, who was Honoka Takaiya in Witch Craft Works, voices Soo-won. Studio Pierrot, who also animated last season’s Sabagebu! –Survival Game Club!-, will be handling the animation production.

Oh thank goodness! The other news article about Trinity Seven didn't say anything about the show being available worldwide (I live in Estonia).

It's just a rumor currently, with no "official" word from any party, but yeah.

The Seven Deadly Sins issue is real whack. I hope this is a Attack on Titan issue, we had to wait a week before CR nabbed it. Perhaps it will be the same with Netflix if that rumor is true. Also I see that Hunter x Hunter is on Netflix, were they airing that one with CR as well?
