Crunchyroll Adds Zettai Boei Leviatan Anime to Simulcast Lineup

Apr 8th 2013
From mobile gaming giant GREE comes a new fantasy-magical girl anime

San Francisco, Calif. (April 5, 2013) – Crunchyroll, Inc., blazes through its simulcast acquisitions with the addition of Zettai Bōei Leviatan, which is set to broadcast every Saturday starting on April 6, at 11:00 a.m. Pacific Time for its premium members. Free members will be able to view this series one (1) week after initial Crunchyroll broadcast. More information can be found on www.crunchyroll.com/leviatan.

Zettai Bōei Leviatan will be available to Crunchyroll's audience in the following territories: North America, the United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Netherlands, Scandinavia, Turkey, Central America, and South America.

Based on a new mobile game that GREE has launched in Japan,[1] the trio of heroines in Zettai Bōei Leviatan will be voiced by three very talented actresses: Ayana Taketatsu, Eri Kitamura, and Saori Hayami. Ms. Taketatsu has taken lead roles in hit shows like K-ON!, Star Driver, and Date A Live, while Ms. Hayami has appeared in hit series like Heaven's Lost Property, Bakuman., and East of Eden, and both share a common co-starring bond in the Oreimo franchise. Ms. Kitamura's accolades are far and wide, as her roles have extended from to Nisemonogatari (alongside Ms. Hayami), Puella Magi Madoka Magica to LAST EXILE.

“On the blue and green planet of Aquafall: a storm of meteorites blasts through the atmosphere towards this peaceful planet, delivering an unknown scourge threatening all living creatures with extinction. Syrop makes a plea to enlist all the strongest of this world to join the Aquafall Defense, for she cannot save the planet alone.

While traveling, Syrop encounters three very talented warriors from the three dragon clans: Jörmungand, Bahamut, and Leviatan, each with a unique set of abilities that just might save the planet from its destruction.”
