posted on by Karen Ressler
Crunchyroll announced on Monday that it will stream Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE! (Binan Kōkō Chikyū Bōei-bu Love!). The stream will be available worldwide outside of Asia for members starting on January 6 at 1:40 p.m. EST and free users will be able to watch one week later.
Funimation will also stream the series and will premiere the first episode on January 13.
Funimation describes the story:
Teenage boys are notoriously lazy, and the members of Binan High School's Earth Defense Club are no exception. Their definition of “earth defense” is bumming around all day at the local bathhouse. But when a pink wombat appears out of thin air and begs the boys to help him save the planet, even the idlest high schoolers jump to action. Watch the magical boys transform and save the earth with the power of LOVE!
