Crunchyroll announced plans to simulcast CG-animated action anime BBK/BRNK as part of its winter 2016 lineup. Episodes will premiere every Saturday starting January 9 at 7:30pm Pacific Time.
BBK/BRNK will be available to Crunchyroll members worldwide except for Asia, Spain, Portugal, Australia, New Zealand; and German, French, Italian and Dutch Speaking Europe.
BBK/BRNK, pronounced bubuki buranki, is Daizen Komatsuda’s debut as a series director, but he brings with him his experience from previously working on other hit shows like Kill la Kill and Attack on Titan. The show also features the voice talent of Yusuke Kobayashi (Su-Won in Yona of the Dawn) as Azuma Kazuki and Ari Ozawa (Chiyo Sakura in Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun) as Kogane Asabuki. The series’ CG animation is being produced by SANZIGEN Animation Studio (Miss Monochrome, Wooser’s Hand-to-Mouth Life).
In the world of BBK/BRNK, It’s been ten years since Azuma Kazuki has been in Japan, and upon his arrival he is taken prisoner by a group of armed men. Azuma is saved by his childhood friend, Kogane Asabuki, thanks to a living weapon she wields on her right hand, known as a Bubuki. Learning about these weapons, Azuma becomes a Bubuki wielder himself and sets out on a journey.
