posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Media distribution service Crunchyroll announced on Tuesday that it will stream the Sekai Seifuku ~ Bōryaku no Zvezda (World Conquest Zvezda Plot) television anime series. The company will stream the series on Saturdays starting on January 11 at 12:30 p.m. EST for premium users in North America, South America, European regions (except the United Kingdom, Ireleand, and French- and German-speaking regions), the Middle East, the Arab League (including Israel), and South Africa. Free users in those countries can watch new episodes one week later.
Aniplex of America announced last month that it plans to release the series on home video.
Aniplex of America describes the World Conquest anime as follows:
Every leader of the past has thought of it… but all they have done was to merely dream of its greatness.
WORLD DOMINATION…nobody has been able to achieve it. Until one little girl by the name of KATE HOSHIMIYA came along. KATE HOSHIMIYA will shock the world!
How was she was able to carry out such a MAGNIFICENT stunt? So FRIGHTFUL! So GLORIOUS!
Could this be…the ZVEZDA PLOT?!
Let the light of our great ZVEZDA shine upon this land far and wide!
The show will star Misaki Kuno as Kate Hoshimiya, Natsuki Hanae as Asuta Jimon, Kana Hanazawa as Professor Um, Erii Yamazaki as Roboko, Kousuke Toriumi as Yasu, Mariya Ise as Itsuka Shikabane, Minoru Hirota as Gorō Shikabane, MAO as Renge Komadori, and Minako Kotobuki as Miki Shirasagi.
Tensai Okamura (Blue Exorcist, Darker Than Black, Wolf's Rain) is directing the brand-new television anime at A-1 Pictures. Type-Moon's Meteo Hoshizora and Okamura are in charge of the series scripts. Kouhaku Kuroboshi (Allison & Lillia, Kino's Journey, Sky Girls) created the original character designs, and Keigo Sasaki (Blue Exorcist, Night Raid 1931) is adapting them for animation.
Tatsuya Katou (Free! - Iwatobi Swim Club, Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere, Medaka Box) is composing the music. Maaya Sakamoto and rock group "the band apart" perform the opening theme, while voice actress Aoi Yūki performs the ending theme.
The series will premiere in Japan on Tokyo MX TV and other stations on January 11 at midnight.
Update: Crunchyroll has updated its announcement to note that the following countries will be able to watch the series: North America, South America, European regions (except the United Kingdom, Ireleand, and French- and German-speaking regions), the Middle East, the Arab League (including Israel), and South Africa.
