Media distribution service Crunchyroll announced at its Fanime panel on Saturday that it will stream the new Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal anime series as it runs in Japan. Its streaming will begin on Saturday, July 5 at 6:00 am ET. (During the post-panel question-and-answer session, the Crunchyroll panel representatives corrected the originally announced time of a day earlier.) The anime will also stream at that same time worldwide on the Niconico service, and Viz licensed the anime for North America.
The new 26-episode series will stream worldwide twice a month for one year with Kotono Mitsuishi reprising the starring title role. The anime will also star Hisako Kanemoto as Ami Mizuno/Sailor Mercury, Rina Satou as Rei Hino/Sailor Mars, Ami Koshimizu as Makoto Kino/Sailor Jupiter, and Shizuka Itou as Minako Aino/Sailor Venus.
Crunchyroll also announced that it will stream JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Re-Edit, a three-episode compilation of the earlier JoJo's Bizarre Adventure television anime. The three episodes will begin running on Friday, May 30 on 12:30 p.m. ET.
Crunchyroll will stream the Japanese live-action television series Frenemy -Rumble of the Rat- with two members of the group EXILE. The streams will begin with the first six episodes on Monday, May 26 at 5:00 p.m. ET, followed by the last six episodes later. Another Japanese live-action television series, No Dropping Out -Back to School at 35-, will begin on Tuesday, June 3 at a time to be announced later. It depicts a 35-year-old woman who goes back to high school.
Update: PT times changed to ET times.
