It's time for another heaping spoonful of additions to Crunchyroll's anime catalog. This time members can look forward to Captain Harlock: Arcadia of My Youth - Endless Orbit SSX, Midnight Eye Goku, Nagasarete Airanto, The Legend of Black Heaven, and both Honey and Clover and Honey and Clover II. They all launch today, so check out the details and timing for each below.

 

Captain Harlock: Arcadia of My Youth - Endless Orbit SSX

Launch Time: May 14 at 3:00pm Pacific Time

Territories: United States and Canada

 

Synopsis:

Far into the future, a terrible alien menace named Illumidas has conquered Earth. War hero Captain Harlock and his faithful crew are forced to flee into space on their cutting-edge battleship. As they travel the galaxy fighting injustice, Harlock dreams of some day finding Arcadia, a legendary planet where all humans can be free.  Along his journey, Harlock is joined by more valiant young people who share his dream of a better future for all humankind. But the Illumidas — assisted by a brilliant human engineer, who will betray even his own kind in the name of revenge — will stop at nothing to halt his voyage. Harlock and his allies are declared pirates, under the code name SSX!  This 1982 series from the mind of Leiji Matsumoto acts as a loose prequel to the classic Galaxy Express 999 and Space Pirate Captain Harlock. Reuniting Harlock with old friends while introducing a new and colorful cast, Endless Orbit SSX offers more of the quiet introspection, manly derring-do, and stunningly animated ship-to-ship combat sequences that the Harlock series is known for. Arcadia, take off! 

 

 

Midnight Eye Goku 

Launch Time: May 14 at 5:00pm PT

Territories: United States and Canada

 

Synopsis:

Goku lives by a simple rule: never get involved with women. But as a private detective in a futuristic Tokyo City, that's easier said than done. Directed by Yoshiaki Kawajiri (Wicked City, Demon City Shinjuku) and written by Buichi Terasawa (Space Adventure Cobra), this classic anime features a pair of stories that delve into a sleek and sexy world, filled with deadly cyborgs and alluring demons. Goku's cases take him into the heart of danger, whether it's facing down a powerful and wealthy man who develops mass-murdering weapons, or a crazed experiment wielding ultimate power gone wrong. His one ace in the hole is his cybernetic left eye, which allows him to control any computer system in the world and gain information instantly. It's his one edge over the bad guys--but even with it, Goku can never see into the hearts of the women who enter his life as quickly as they leave it.

After drifting away out to sea, he eventually washes ashore on an island named "Airantou" by the locals. The island is surrounded by whirlpools making any attempt at escape impossible, and likely life-threatening. 

 

Only women reside on this island, putting Ikuto in the unique position where nearly every person around sees him as prime husband material. Will Ikuto be able to adapt to life on this uncharted island with women fighting over him─sometimes literally!─at every single turn?

Life can crush your dreams.
