All 3 series premiere Thursday

Crunchyroll announced on Thursday that it is adding the Rage of Bahamut: Genesis, Mikagura School Suite, and Romeo x Juliet anime to its catalog. All three series are available on FunimationNow with English audio.

Rage of Bahamut: Genesis launched at 7:00 p.m. EDT in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, and Ireland.

The series premiered in October 2014. Funimation streamed the series as it aired in Japan and released the series on home video. Funimation describes the anime as follows:

Two thousand years ago, the black-and-silver-winged dragon, Bahamut, terrorized the magical land of Mistarcia. The humans, god, and demons that inhabited the land united forces against the fiend and sealed its power into a key which was split in two, one half protected by gods and the other protected by demons. Now, Mistarcia is a peaceful realm – until a human woman steals the god's half of the key.

The sequel, Rage of Bahamut: Virgin Soul, premiered last month. Amazon's Anime Strike is streaming the series as it airs in Japan.

Mikagura School Suite launched at 7:30 p.m. EDT in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Iceland, Sweden, Norway, and Denmark. Crunchyroll describes the story:

Like most awkward teens, formerly reclusive gamer Eruna Ichinomiya struggles to find her place at Mikagura High School. But her experience is far from ordinary. The mischief-making members of the school's manga, calligraphy, drama, and other cultural clubs vie for total school domination in a rather extreme way—ULTIMATE ATTACKS.

The series premiered in April 2015 and Funimation streamed the series in Japanese with English subtitles and with a broadcast dub. The company later released the series on home video.

One Peace Books will release Last Note's original Mikagura School Suite light novel series and its manga adaptation this August and September.

Romeo x Juliet will launch at 8:00 p.m. in the United States and Canada. Crunchryroll describes the story:

As Juliet prepares to raise her sword against the tyrant whose hands are stained by the blood of her ancestors, only Romeo stands in her way—the boy she loves and the son of the man she must kill. She is the last breath of a dying line of kings, and the final hope of a city that desperately needs her.

Gonzo's anime premiered in 2007 and Funimation announced in 2008 that it licensed the show. Funimation released the series in DVD in North America.
