Crunchyroll Adds "Chargeman Ken" to Anime Catalog

Series goes live today at 4:00pm Pacific Time!

The latest addition to Crunchyroll's catalog is a true blast from the past. Starting today at 4:00pm Pacific Time, you'll be able to dig into the 1974 Chargeman Ken anime! 


Chargeman Ken will be available to Crunchyroll members in the United States and Canada. 




Infamous among anime fans in Japan, this 1974 series by Knack Productions is known for its nonsensical plots, absurdly incompetent animation, and brutal 10-year-old hero. See young Ken Izumi gun down wave after wave of ineffectual aliens, while dealing with misaligned animation cels, repetitive music, and a near total lack of sound effects. The best joke is that none of this was meant as a joke.
