Crunchyroll Adds "Assassination Classroom" and More to Anime Catalog

First batch of "Unbox the Holidays" campaign titles announced

Crunchyroll is getting in the spirit of the season with an "Unbox the Holidays" campaign, in which a new selection of catalog titles is revealed each week. The first batch is upon us, so check out what new anime is available in the catalog right now.

 

A Certain Magical Index - USA, Canada
 
Kamijo is a student in Academy City, where people use science to develop supernatural abilities. The guy’s got a lot of heart – luckily for a young nun named Index. She’s on the run from a sorcery society that covets the astonishing 103,000 volumes of magical knowledge stored in her memory. When Index stumbles into Kamijo’s life, she find a faithful friend and protector, and while Kamijo’s easily the weakest kid in Academy City, he’s got something else going for him: the Imagine Breaker, an unexplainable power stored in his right hand that negates the powers of others. 

 

Assassination Classroom - USA, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa
 
Forget about homework and pop quizzes. The students of Class 3E have a far more important assignment: kill their teacher before the end of the year! A tentacle-d sensei that moves at Mach 20 is out to conquer the classroom after destroying seventy percent of the moon. In addition to reading, writing, and arithmetic, the murderous monster behind the lectern will teach his students everything he knows about the assassination game. Should some eager beaver prove to be a quick study in killing, he or she will save Earth from extinction – and collect a hefty reward.


The Heroic Legend of Arslan - USA, Canada, South Africa
The Heroic Legend of Arslan: Dust Storm Dance - USA, Canada
 
Pars Era, the year 320—war is on the horizon. As the soldiers of Pars prepare for battle, a traitor within their ranks turns the tides in favor of the enemy kingdom, Lusitania. Arslan, the young Prince of Pars, survives the massacre to discover that his father has gone missing and his life is in grave danger. Unsure who to trust, Arslan escapes the battlefield, evading capture until he’s found by his loyal friend Daryun, the formidable Black Knight of Pars.

 

There are also now additional territories for the following:

 

Barakamon - USA, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa
 
BARAKAMON follows the story of Seishu Handa- a calligrapher, who as a punishment from punching another famous calligrapher is outlawed to a small island. As a city boy will Seishu be able to adapt to his new environment?


Ping Pong the Animation - USA, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa
 
Makoto Tsukimoto (nicknamed Smile) is a quiet high-schooler who's been friends with the loud and energetic Yukata Hoshino (nicknamed Peco) since childhood. They're both in the local table tennis club and both have a natural talent for it, although Smile's personality always enables him from winning against Peco. The club teacher, however, notices Smile's talent and tries to make him gain some sportive tenacity.
