Crunchyroll Streams 91 Days OVA, Project Blue Earth SOS Anime

posted on by Karen Ressler
Also: 2nd season of Kingdom added

Crunchyroll posted the unaired 13th episode of 91 Days, the Project Blue Earth SOS television anime, and the second season of Kingdom for members on Wednesday.

The "Day 13" episode of 91 Days is available worldwide outside of Asia. The episode contains three stories. The first story, "Toki no Asase" (Shoals of Time), centers on Nero and Vanno persuading Frate to skip mass with them and see the circus. The second story, "Subete no Kinō" (Yesterday Before Everything), focuses on Ganzo, as he meets a young man named Vincente at a bar, and asks Ganzo to do something for him. The third story, "Ashita, Mata Ashita" (Tomorrow, and then Tomorrow), is set after Nero and Avilio defeat Mad Mack and are on the way back to Lawless. Nero suffers from Fever Dreams, and Avilio nurses him back to health.

The episode bundled with the anime's seventh Japanese Blu-ray Disc and DVD release on July 5.

The television series premiered last July, and Crunchyroll streamed it as it aired. Funimation streamed an English dub for the anime last October. Funimation will release the series on home video on November 14 in both standard and limited editions.

Project Blue Earth SOS is available in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa. Crunchyroll describes the story:

While deranged alien forces prepare a fleet of flying saucers for the invasion of all invasions, teenage geniuses Penny Carter and Billy Kimura join forces with a clandestine secret alliance to save humanity from the extra-terrestrial helmet worms and their tentacles of doom!

The 2006 anime is based on Shigeru Komatsuzaki's "Earth SOS" illustrations, which he published in the 1940s. Tensai Okamura directed the anime from a script by Ryota Yamaguchi. Noriyuki Matsutake designed the characters, while Shinji Aramaki and Jin Fukuchi handled mechanical designs.

ADV Films licensed and released the six-episode series with Japanese audio and with an English dub. Funimation later picked up the license and is currently streaming it in both languages.

The second season of Kingdom is available in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa. Crunchyroll describes the story:

Shin and Hyou are war-orphans in the Kingdom of Qin. They dream of proving themselves on the battlefield until the day Hyou is captured by a minister. The boy manages to escape and return to his village, but he is badly injured. Shin then meets a mysterious youth who bears an eerie resemblance to Hyou—a boy who will one day become emperor!

The first anime season based on Yasuhisa Hara's historical manga premiered in June 2012 and Funimation streamed the series as it aired in Japan. The second anime season ran for 39 episodes from 2013-2014. Funimation did not simulcast the series but later released it on home video. The series is now streaming with English and Japanese audio on Funimation's streaming service.
