Crunchyroll Adds The Galaxy Railways Video Anime to Catalog
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Crunchyroll announced on Thursday that it has added The Galaxy Railways: A Letter from the Abandoned Planet OAV to its catalog. The anime is available to members in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand.
Crunchyroll describes the anime:
In the distant future, the planets are now connected with a massive galactic railway system. The Galaxy Express 999 has crash landed on a mysterious planet. On board are The Conductor, Killian, Maetel, and Tetsuro, a ten year-old street urchin with a heart of gold. Now it's up to the SDF Sirius Platoon to rescue them before the Herise Time Mystery—a rift in the deep axis of time and space—repeats.
The four-episode OAV bridges the story of The Galaxy Railways and Ginga Tetsudo Monogatari: Eien e no Bunkiten television anime, although it was released after the latter had already aired. The OAV debuted in December 2006. Funimation released The Galaxy Railways anime on six DVD volumes from 2005 to 2006, and re-released it in box set collections in 2007, 2008, and 2014.
Crunchyroll also revealed on Thursday that it will add the fifth and final episode of Brotherhood Final Fantasy XV on the site on Saturday at 11:00 p.m. EDT. The episode will premiere first on Twitch on Friday at 11:00 p.m. EDT. The Final Fantasy XV YouTube channel began streaming a preview for the episode on Thursday.
