Crunchyroll announced on Thursday that it has added the Hellsing, Hellsing Ultimate, Baldr Force EXE, Chaos Dragon, and Unbreakable Machine-Doll anime to its catalog.
Hellsing is available for users in the United States and Canada. Crunchyroll describes the anime:
Witness the blood-soaked roots of a legend in Hellsing, the action-horror series that launched the careers of some of anime's brightest stars. The vampire Arucard and his servant Seras Victoria protect the British Empire from ghouls and satanic freaks. Together, they haunt the shadows as a sinister force of good—and tonight the streets of England shall flow with the blood of their evil prey.
Geneon released the 13-episode series in DVD singles from 2002 to 2003. Funimation re-released the series on DVD in 2012.
Episodes 1-4 of Hellsing Ultimate are available for users in the United States and Canada, while episodes 5-10 are available for users in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Ireland. Crunchyroll describes the OVA:
The rogue vampire Arucard is the Hellsing Organization's deadliest instrument in its mission to protect the British Empire from satanic ghouls and Nazi freaks. With recently-turned policewoman Seras Victoria as his servant, Arucard haunts the shadows as a sinister force of good—and tonight the foggy streets of England shall flow with the blood of their evil prey.
The Hellsing Ultimate OVA series shipped in Japan on an irregular schedule from 2006 to 2012. Geneon released up to the third volume in North America in 2007, before Funimation began distributing the anime.
Baldr Force EXE is available for users in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa. Crunchyroll describes the anime:
The Wired World exists on a network of servers which can only be accessed by the mind. Souma Toru knows the logged-in land well; his hacker gang once had the run of the place. When tragedy tore his group apart, he was forced to join FLAK: a military organization that protects the hidden data paradise. Toru vows to avenge the dead of his past, even as new ghosts take shape in the present.
The four-episode OVA series debuted in 2006-2007. Funimation licensed and released the anime on DVD in 2008.
Chaos Dragon is available for users in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, Iceland, Sweden, Norway, and Denmark. Funimation describes the anime:
The island of Nil Kamui is caught between the war of Kouran and D'natia, two powerful warring countries. When Kouran makes moves to claim the island, there is nothing the people of Nil Kamui can do to stop them. The guardian dragon of the country, Red Dragon, has gone insane and provides them no help, and even a treaty with D'natia provides them with little aid. The small island loses all its independence and becomes divided.
Amidst the war, royal descendant Ibuki loses his entire family to an attack by Kouran soldiers. Haunted by the tragedy, he denies the throne, thinking that Nil Kamui will be better off without a king. However, when tensions rise and the rebel army of Nil Kamui attacks Kouran soldiers, Ibuki finds himself bound to the Red Dragon as a child of contract. With this contract, he will have the powers of Red Dragon when he calls upon him. But there's a catch. To use this immense power, he must offer an equivalent exchange the life of someone precious to him. Can Ibuki handle the weight of sacrificing a life in exchange for power? Or is the only way to obtain peace to destroy the Red Dragon?
Unbreakable Machine-Doll is available for users in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Sweden, and Norway. Funimation describes the anime:
Raishin Akabane and his beautiful companion Yaya enroll at Walpurgis Royal Academy to study Machinart: a dangerous blend of magic and technology. Raishin is a puppeteer capable of using magic to power up Yaya, his automaton, for ruthless battles no mere human could survive.
In the wrong hands, Yaya is a deadly weapon, but the honorable Raishin, despite his mysterious quest for vengeance, takes no pleasure in killing for sport. Instead, he joins forces with a harem of gorgeous classmates to unmask those responsible for a rash of heinous human experimentation. If new enemies and terrible grades don't spell doom for Raishin, he and Yaya might live long enough to conquer the school where magic meets machine!
