posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Crunchyroll announced on Wednesday that it has added the Lost Universe anime to its catalog. The anime is available to Crunchyroll members in the United States and Canada in both the English dub and the original Japanese audio with English subtitles. The entire series is available for premium users, while only the first 13 episodes are available for free users, with the next 13 episodes available next week.
Crunchyroll describes the series:
Millie Nocturne has one great goal in life: to be the best in the universe - at absolutely everything! But when she tries her hand at being the "best detective," she ends up an unwilling partner with two people who will change her life forever: Kane Blueriver, the psi-blade-wielding master of the starship Swordbreaker, and Canal, the smart-mouthed holographic image of the ship's computer. Join this unlikely trio on their adventures as they hurtle through space facing off against intergalactic crime lords, rogue starships, and hijackers dressed as chickens... and that's just the tip of the asteroid!
The series premiered in 1998 and is based on on the novel series by Hajime Kanzaka (Slayers). ADV released the series on DVD and VHS volumes from 2000 to 2001. Right Stuf's Nozomi Entertainment acquired the anime and released it on DVD in 2007, and re-released it in 2014.
