HackaDoll the Animation will begin streaming on Friday, October 2 at 10:00 a.m. EDT in English, Thai, and Indonesian worldwide (except for Japan and China).

Daisuki describes the story of Owarimonogatari:

During the month of October of his third year in high school, Koyomi Araragi is introduced to a transfer student named Ougi Oshino by his underclassman Kanbaru Suruga.

Ougi tells Koyomi that she has something she wishes to consult with him. When she draws the map of Naoestu High School, she finds something peculiar on the map of Naoetsu High School she draws.

This discovery reveals a tale that wasn't meant to be told, and this makes Koyomi's high school life totally different.

This is the story that brings to light “what” makes Koyomi Araragi.

This is the story that reveals the “beginning” of everything.

NisiOisin's original three-volume novel is part of the "final season" of the Monogatari series. The first volume shipped with the stories "Ōgi Formula," "Sodachi Riddle," and "Sodachi Lost" in October 2013. The second volume shipped in January 2014 with the story "Shinobu Mail." The third volume shipped in April 2014.

Daisuki describes the story of The Asterisk War anime based on Yuu Miyazaki's light novel series:

Invertia (meteor storm)… an unprecedented disaster that struck the world during the 20th century.

Because of this disaster, numerous cities around the world were destroyed. However, within the meteor, an unknown element called mana (the all-encompassing element), was discovered, which allowed human technology to make rapid strides.

This also gave rise to a new species of human born with unique skills – the Star Pulse Generation (Genestella).

The setting for the world's greatest comprehensive battle spectacle, the Festas (Star Warrior Festivals), is an academy city above the water surrounded by six academies called “Rikka,” also commonly known as “Asterisk.” Having transferred into Seidoukan Academy in order to fulfill his own wish, scholarship student Ayato Amagiri swears he too will fight in this city.

Burning souls race…
The curtain rises on this school battle spectacle!

Daisuki describes the Cardfight!! Vanguard G GIRS Crisis anime:

"Cardfight!! Vanguard"

The card game with millions of players all over the world, is always thrilling people and nurturing bonds...

Chrono Shindou's fate of isolation was greatly changed by his experience with Vanguard through the unknown clan, "Gear Chronicle." Shion Kiba holds his head up high in his pursuit of his own possibilities. Tokoha Anjou has accepted herself for who she is, and is forming her own path to the future.

The members of Team TRY3 stay strong to the Vanguard they believe in, and head down the path towards maturity together.

What is this "Plan-G" that Kouji Ibuki is devising to achieve his mission about?

What future will Chrono and the rest achieve through their new encounters!?

The G Quest will see Legend class fighters such as Toshiki Kai, Ren Suzugamori and Leon Soryu taking part!

The fight for a new era begins now!

The original Hacka Doll app delivers a customized feed of news for each user. The user answers some simple questions when launching the app for the first time, and then the app will filter the news that caters to the user's personal interests — boys love (BL), cosplay, anime, manga, games, light novels, voice cast members, and more. With daily use, the app automatically analyzes and learns which news articles the user reads and recommends to further personalize the feed.

The 10-minute anime shorts personify the app's customization engine as three "Hacka Dolls" — the personal entertainment AI and main navigator Hacka Doll #1 (played by Miyu Takagi), the anime expert Hacka Doll #2 (Kaya Okuno), and the knowledgeable otaku Hacka Doll #3 (Nanami Yamashita). "The Personal Entertainment AI 'HackaDoll' was created to alleviate stress... These slightly clumsy but still lovable girls put their bodies on the line to solve the problems of a variety of people! 'Personal Entertainment AI HackaDoll will take care of all of your worries!'"

As previously announced, Daisuki is also streaming Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans, Concrete Revolutio, and the continuing series Milpom.

Aniplex of America will begin streaming both Owarimonogatari and The Asterisk War on Crunchyroll on Saturday, October 3. Crunchyroll will also begin streaming HackaDoll the Animation on Friday, October 2.

UpdatE: Anime Consortium Japan sent out a corrected press release concerning The Asterisk War. The anime will also not be streaming in German-speaking countries in Europe, and will not stream with French, Italian, or German subtitles.
