Crunchyroll revealed on Wednesday that it has added Rumbling Hearts, Okami-san and Her Seven Companions, and Armitage III to its catalog.

Rumbling Hearts is available to users in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa. Crunchyroll describes the story:

Meet four fast high school friends – Haruka, Takayuki, Mitsuki and Shinji. Life's promise shines brightly on them, until an accident leaves Haruka in a coma. Her boyfriend, Takayuki, can't forgive himself and seems determined to follow Haruka into a comatose state. Mitsuki dedicates her life to taking care of him, and the pair fall into a self-destructive relationship floundering in guilt.

The anime based on Age's Kimi ga Nozomu Eien adult visual novel premiered in 2003. Funimation released the series on DVD. The series inspired the Akane Maniax original video anime (OVA) in 2004, Ayumayu Theater net anime in 2006, and the Kimi ga Nozomu Eien ~Next Season~ OVA in 2007.

Okami-san and Her Seven Companions is available for users in the United States, Canada, Ireland and the United Kingdom. Crunchyroll describes the story:

Once upon a time, the studio behind Toradora! and Shakugan no Shana created a fable-minded story full of fairy tale tomfoolery. In this amusing rendition of the wolf and the hunter, Ryoko and her friends form Otogi Bank: a social club that helps classmates get out of grim situations. When a boy joins the group to prove his love to Ryoko, will she allow herself to have her own happily ever after?

The anime adapting Masashi Okita's Ōkami-san to Shichinin no Nakama-tachi romantic comedy light novel series debuted in 2010. Funimation released the series on DVD and Blu-ray Disc. The novels also inspired Kurumi Suzushiro's manga adaptation, which ran from 2010 to 2012.

Armitage III is available for users in the United States and Canada. Crunchyroll describes the story:

Armitage is a brash cybernetic cop with a racy wardrobe who patrols a Mars metropolis. She and her stoic partner, Sylibus, risk everything to track a killer who is revealing his female victims' identities as highly-advanced androids. On Earth, Armitage and Sylibus live peacefully under secret identities, until forced to battle an obsessive doctor and his deadly Armitage replicas.

The four-episode OVA debuted in 1995, and Geneon and Funimation released it on DVD. The Armitage III: Poly-Matrix compilation film debuted in 1996, and the Armitage: Dual-Matrix sequel film premiered in 2002. Geneon and Funimation also released both films on DVD.
