Crunchyroll began streaming the third and final episode in The Ancient Magus' Bride: Those Awaiting a Star OVA on Saturday. The episode will be available to free users on September 16. Crunchroll began streaming the first episode in September 2016, and began streaming the second episode on March 9.
The first episode of the prequel OVA series had a two-week run in eight theaters throughout Japan in August 2016. The episode was later bundled with the sixth compiled volume of Kore Yamazaki's original manga series in December. The second part opened in seven Japanese theaters on February 4, and shipped with the seventh manga volume on March 10. The third part opened in theaters on August 19, and shipped with the eighth volume of the manga on Friday. The Blu-ray Disc of the anime will ship this winter.
Crunchyroll also added the following catalog titles from Funimation:
- The Tatami Galaxy
- Vandread the Second Stage
- Pumpkin Scissors
Pumpkin Scissors is available in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and South Africa. The rest of the catalog titles are available in the United States and Canada.
Funimation streamed The Tatami Galaxy anime in North America as it aired in Japan in 2010, and Anime Limited released it on Blu-ray Disc and DVD in the United Kingdom. Funimation previously released the other three titles on DVD.
Crunchyroll also added the Monster Strike's MSonic! spinoff specials to its catalog. Crunchyroll is streaming the anime worldwide outside of Japan and China.
Monster Strike's official English YouTube channel has been streaming all of the specials (along with the main series) with English subtitles at the same time they begin streaming in Japan. The specials are set in a different world from Monster Strike's main net anime series. However, they also feature familiar characters from the original game.
