posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The media distribution service Crunchyroll announced on Monday that it will stream the Dog Days' (pronounced Dog Days Dash) bishōjo fantasy anime series on Saturdays at 12:00 p.m. EDT. The website will stream the series in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand. Additionally, Crunchyroll will also stream the first season of the anime series at a date to be announced later. The second season premiered in Japan on July 7.
The curtain rises again for the story of love, bravery, ears, and tails, "with 200% more enjoyment." Spoiler (highlight the following white text to read) The story is set three months after the first season, when the hero Cinque is once again summoned to the fantasy world of Flonyard. This time though, his childhood friend Rebecca and his cousin Nanami are also summoned.
The first 13-episode series premiered in Japan in April 2011. The studio Seven Arcs (Asura Cryin', Sekirei, Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha) is animating both seasons. In the story of the first season, Princess Millhiore (Yui Horie) of the Biscotti Republic decides to summon a brave warrior from an alternate world to defend her country from the neighboring fiefdom of Galette. The "brave warrior" turns out to be a boy named Cinque (Mamoru Miyano) from modern-day Japan.
