Along with more details on KanColle, we also have our details for Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend!

Starting on Thursday, January 8 at 10:30am PST, users in the following territories can catch this latest rom-com: North America, Central America, South America, Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa.


The story of Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend revolves around Tomoya Aki, an otaku high school student who was working part-time to raise enough funds for an anime Blu-ray. One day, he is captivated by a girl he encounters while walking down a hill adorned with beautiful cherry blossom petals. Unable to take his mind off of this girl, Tomoya decides that he will develop his original dating simulation game with this girl as the model for the heroine! To Tomoya’s surprise, the girl of his dreams turns out to be none other than his classmate, Megumi Kato, a girl that can only be described as “extremely normal.” Can a game heroine modeled after a girl like Megumi be desirable for the game players? Tomoya ventures to recruit a group of eccentric girls around him to make this project a success. But, he will soon realize that things are usually easier said than done—with so many hurdles along the way, and incompatible team members will the game even see the light of day?! Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend is a unique romantic comedy series that will introduce a new type of anime heroine.

Originally a popular light novel series written by author Fumiaki Maruto, the anime adaptation of Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend will be directed by Kanta Kamei (ORESHURA, Nanana’s Buried Treasure) and produced by A-1 Pictures (Sword Art Online II, Blue Exorcist, OREIMO 2).

Hello everyone as we continue our new Winter 2015 title announcements with the comedic short Military!

Starting on Thursday, January 8th at 11:30am PST, Military! will be available to Crunchyroll members worldwide except Japan!


Based on the four-panel manga by Mamo Williams, Military! promises to be one of the most hilarious military adventures yet! The Krakozhia Dukedom and the Grania Republic are at war, and high school student Sōhei Yano wants no part of it. But when two Lieutenants show up in tanks at his door, his life becomes an exercise in dodging stray bullets!

Written and directed by Horioshi Kimura, who recently helmed Hamatora, Military! stars Nao Tōyama as Liutenant Lutgalnikov and Yoshitaka Yamaya as Sōhei Yano. Tōyama's notable roles include Karen Kujō in KINMOZA! and Chitoge in Nisekoi, while Yamaya's resume lists Yūki Hase in One Week Friends and Okojo Mikuni in ALDNOAH.ZERO. The studio Creators in Pack TOKYO is responsible for animation.

As always, be sure to keep checking back to see what's coming next!

You really think CR would announce they were getting two titles and then say, "Oops, sorry"? :)

Also, keep in mind both titles are from Aniplex, who themselves announced both series would be on CR (along with Hulu, as usual):

It could be a one-two punch of it and Koufuku Graffiti

We can also expect more boxes on the lineup page, since 3 announcements today would fill the current ones, and we know for certain CR has more titles to come.

Yes, and this time CR told people up front:

...with the comedic short Military!
