Crunchyroll announced on Thursday that it will begin streaming five new Funimation titles, including Ergo Proxy, Black Cat, Texhnolyze, Aquarion Evol, and Black Blood Brothers.

Ergo Proxy is available to users in the United States and Canada. Crunchyroll describes the anime:

Thousands of years after Earth's atmosphere was destroyed, adventure blooms in the strangets of places. The domed city of Romdo is supposed to be perfect, but Re-l Mayer, a young female inspector from the Civilian Intelligence Office, knows better. In this place where humans and robots coexist, she receives a strange message: something is awakening!

The 23-episode series premiered in February 2006. Geneon Entertainment Inc. released the series on individual DVDs in 2006-2007, and then Funimation acquired the series and released it in a DVD set in 2008, 2009, and 2012, and also released it on Blu-ray Disc last November.

Black Cat is available to users in the United States and Canada. Crunchyroll describes the anime:

The bounty hunter Sven is barely scraping by when he crosses paths with the Black Cat (a.k.a. Train Heartnet) and the young bio-weapon Eve. The three new companions will need more than luck to survive when they find themselves sought by both the Chronos Numbers and a Taoist revolutionary group called the Apostles of the Star.

The 24-episode series premiered in October 2005. Funimation released the series on individual DVDs from 2006 to 2007, and then released DVD sets in 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2012.

Texhnolyze is available to users in the United States and Canada. Crunchyroll describes the anime:

Cult-favorite Yoshitoshi ABe tempts us to witness man's downward spiral in a future overrun by violence, greed, and depravity. After Ichise loses an arm and leg, he's equipped with experimental robotic limbs against his will. When an army of men transformed into terrifying machines invades his city, Ichise rages against humanity's demise—but can his actions actually be the catalyst?

The 22-episode series premiered in April 2003. Geneon Entertainment Inc. released the series on individual DVDs from 2004 to 2005, and released a complete DVD set in 2006. Funimation then released the series on a DVD set in 2012.

Aquarion Evol is available to users in the United States and Canada. Crunchyroll describes the anime:

After accidentally forming the legendary mecha “Aquarion,” Amata finds himself at a pilot-training academy where the girls are flirty and the boys seem more interested in exploring holes and big bangs than harnessing their Elemental superpowers. When a mysterious megalomaniac plots interplanetary disaster, the fate of the galaxy depends on whether or not the hormone-fueled coeds can come together.

The 26-episode anime premiered in January 2012. Funimation licensed the series and released it on Blu-ray Disc and DVD sets in 2013, 2014, and 2016.

Black Blood Brothers is available to users in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, and the Netherlands. Crunchyroll describes the anime:

A decade has passed since the war between humans and vampires, when the infectious bite of the Kowloon Bloodline set the streets ablaze. Today, Jiro travels to the Special Zone, where the peace between vampires and humans is threatening to crack. As a new battle erupts between human soldiers, vampiric refugees, and Kowloon Children, Jiro must draw the Silver Blade once more.

The 12-episode series premiered in September 2006. Funimation released the series on individual DVDs in 2008, and released the series on Blu-ray Disc and DVD sets in 2010 and 2011.
