This quirky and light-hearted show prepares to turn the slice of life genre on its head this winter

San Francisco, Calif. (January 3, 2012) – Crunchyroll continues with its winter simulcast announcements with the simulcasting of RECORDER AND RANDSELL, which will be available every Thursday starting on January 5, at 9:30 am PST for its members. More information can be found on 


RECORDER AND RANDSELL will be available worldwide, except Japan.


Crunchyroll’s senior brand manager Michelle Hwang said, “It’s exciting to see anime shorts make a comeback, as Takeshobo has a knack for creating these warm-hearted, amiable series.  Following suit with MORITA-SAN WA MUKUCHI, RECORDER AND RANDSELL will undoubtedly support the turn of phrase: sometimes big things come in small packages!”


“On the surface it seems as if Atsushi is an adult, but really he's just an elementary student!  However, he is paired with a second-year high school student Atsumi, whose height is just the opposite of his. These two together create an unusual relationship and will undoubtedly instigate some comedic antics in this slice of life comedy!”


Episodes can be accessed from, the free iPad and iPhone application, the Android application, Roku, Boxee, Vizio VIA, WD TV Live and additional set-top channels, and affiliate partners.


Crunchyroll premium members will have access to the largest anime and drama selection, same-day access for simulcasted titles, no advertisements and can be viewed in 480p-to-720p quality on selected titles. More information about the Crunchyroll membership plan can be found at:
