Also: 3rd season of Rainy Cocoa series added to catalog

Crunchyroll announced on Wednesday that it has added the KOWABON and Onara Goro television anime series to its catalog. KOWABON is available worldwide outside of Asia, and Onara Goro is available worldwide outside of Asia and Italian-speaking countries.

Kowabon is an original anime series produced by Kyushu Asahi Broadcasting and ILCA through rotoscoping live-action footage, and features "Bondage x Stylish Horror" as a theme. Crunchyroll provides the following tagline: "The world is filled with cameras. Their 'eyes' have been seeing a world you didn't know existed." The anime premiered in Japan in October 2015.

Onara Goro is a short anime created by independent anime creator Takashi Taniguchi. The anime premiered in Japan in July 2016.

The story follows the everyday life of Gorō, the "most admirable of farts," as he solves problems in ways that only a fart can. Taniguchi began publishing a manga version in Shogakukan's Corocoro Aniki magazine in March.

Crunchyroll has also added Rainy Cocoa in Hawaii, the third season of the Rainy Cocoa anime, to its catalog. The series is available for users in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, Denmark, and Central and South America, including the Caribbean.

Crunchyroll previously announced last month that it planned to add the third season. Crunchyroll is currently streaming the fourth season, Ame-con!! (Ame-iro Cocoa Series: Ame-con!!), as it is airing in Japan.

Crunchyroll describes the anime:

Amami, the owner of the Rainy Color café, assigned Nozomu Tokura as the manager of the new shop in Hawaii. Even though life of Nozomu is increasingly hectic toward the opening, he and his new fellows in Hawaii keep positive and make their efforts trying to get everything down. Can they make it by the date of opening?

The third season premiered in October 2016.

The first Rainy Cocoa anime premiered in April 2015 and the sequel, Rainy Cocoa, Welcome to Rainy Color (Ameiro Cocoa Rainy color e Yōkoso!), premiered in October 2015. Funimation streamed both Rainy Cocoa and Rainy Cocoa, Welcome to Rainy Color as they aired, and the company released both seasons subtitled only on DVD last September. The currently-airing fourth season premiered on October 4.
