Funimation to Stream Concrete Revolutio, Doamaiger-D, STARMYU Anime

Concrete Revolutio, STARMYU premiere this fall; Doamaiger D premiered in January

FUNimation Entertainment announced on Friday that it will stream the Concrete Revolutio, Doamayger-D, and STARMYU anime for the fall season.

Anime Consortium Japan (ACJ) is co-producing Concrete Revolutio (Concrete Revolutio: Chōjin Gensō) and will also stream the series on Daisuki. Funimation describes the story:

What if superhumans were real? Even better, what if every fabled superhuman existed at the same time, in the same place? Titans from outer space, life forms from a mystical world, phantoms and goblins from ancient times, cyborgs created by scientists, relics that rose out of the ruins of ancient civilizations. In another Japan, it's not just a question of “what if”—it's a reality. Some of the superhumans choose to keep their identities a secret, while others bask in their superhuman fame. Jiro Hitoyoshi, member of the Superhuman Bureau, keeps track of their doings.

The series reunites the main staff from Fullmetal Alchemist. Seiji Mizushima (Fullmetal Alchemist, Un-Go, Mobile Suit Gundam 00, Hanamaru Kindergarten) is directing the series at BONES, and Shō Aikawa (Fullmetal Alchemist, Un-Go, Ghost Slayers Ayashi, Martian Successor Nadesico) is in charge of series composition.

The series will premiere in Japan on October 4.

Funimation describes Daomayger-D (Daomayger D):

This retro-style throwback is a romping adventure with a sweet setting! In a traditional Japanese sweets shop in Kyoto works Daijiro Kyogoku, the latest young successor in a long line of sweet shop owners. One day, Daijiro finds a giant robot in the shop's basement called Doamayger-D. Now, villanous robots are on the loose, and the hero we need is Doamayger-D… a candy-making mech?

Shimon Doi directed the series and designed the characters, while Uuronta Yoshida wrote the scripts. Actor Ryota Murai (Fūma no Kojirō, Kamen Rider Decade) played the role of Daijiro.

The 13-episode series premiered in January on TV Kanagawa (tvk) and KBS Kyoto, and later in April on Sun TV.

Funimation describes STARMYU (High School Star Musical):

Ayana Academy: home of musical dreams and insane competition. New student Yuta Hoshitani dreams of being in show business, but to get there he'll have to gain acceptance from the Kao Kai (Cherry Blossom Flower Association), Ayana Academy's three highest ranking students. For Yuta and his friends to get into the music department, they'll have to get into the Star Frame class, which is taught by the Kao Kai members. Though the newcomers are struggling, they catch the interest of one of the Kao Kai members, which just might send them on the starlit journey they've been dreaming of!

Shunsuke Tada (Kuroko's Basketball, Prince of Tennis) is directing at C-Station (Dragonar Academy), and Sayaka Harada is in charge of the series scripts. Asami Watanabe is designing the characters. Tadako (Arashi's "Love so sweet," "Monster") is responsible for the dance sequences.

The anime will premiere on October 5.
