Crunchyroll Adds a Double Dose of "Unico" Anime Movies

Both features will be available in the US and Canada at 5:00pm PT

Looking for something classic to watch tonight? Crunchyroll announced the addition of two Unico anime movies, both of which will be available to Crunchyroll members in the US and Canada today at 5:00pm Pacific Time.

 

First up is 1981's The Fantastic Adventures of Unico:

 

Synopsis:

Unico the Unicorn has the amazing power to make anyone he meets happy. Whether it's because of his personality or the powers of his horn, no one knows. However, the gods become jealous of Unico, thinking that only they should be able to decide or allow people to be happy. Unico is banished to the Hill of Oblivion, and the West Wind is ordered to take him there. She can't stand giving this fate to Unico, so Unico's adventures begin, as the West Wind takes him from one place and time to the next, in a never ending journey to escape the wrath of the gods.

 

Then you can dig into 1983's Unico in the Island of Magic:

 

Synopsis: 

Unico the unicorn has the amazing power to make anyone he meets happy. In this adventure, Unico finds himself with a new friend, a young girl named Cherry. However, Cherry's long lost older brother Toby has finally come home, and is now a misguided apprentice to an insane (and not human) magician named Kuruku. When Cherry's parents get turned into weird, almost zombie-like dolls called living puppets, she and Unico start a quest to the very ends of the earth to get her parents and brother back before Kuruku takes over the world.
