Crunchyroll began streaming English-subtitled promotional videos on Friday for the Harukana Receive and the Hanebad television anime series. (Note: The videos cannot be viewed Asia and parts of the Middle East.)
Harukana Receive will stream on Crunchyroll in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Netherlands, Scandinavia, and Latin America. Hanebad will stream worldwide outside of Asia on Crunchyroll.
Both series will also stream on Funimation with English dubs in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand.
Harukana Receive will premiere in Japan on July 6 on AT-X at 9:00 p.m. Seven Seas Entertainment licensed the manga and plans to release the first two volumes in July and October. The company describes the story:
When high schooler Haruka moves to Okinawa, she finds herself enamored with the beach right outside her front door and resolves to form a volleyball team with her cousin, Kanata. However, because she's so short, Kanata gave up on volleyball ages ago. Can Haruka get her to take up the sport again in time for the junior tournament?
Toshiyuki Kubooka (Berserk: The Golden Age Arc) is directing the anime at C2C, and Touko Machida (A Centaur's Life, Wake Up, Girls!) is supervising and writing the series scripts.
Hanebad will premiere on July 1 at midnight (effectively July 2) on Tokyo MX, BS11, and AT-X. Shinpei Ezaki (Monster Strike The Movie) is directing the anime at LIDEN FILMS, and Taku Kishimoto (Haikyu!!, Erased) is in charge of the series scripts.
The manga's story begins with Kentarō Tachibana, the coach of Kitakomachi High School's badminton team. He is worried because the team has so few members that it cannot even enter competitions, but then he spots a student named Ayano Hanesaki easily climbing a large tree on the school grounds, expertly demonstrating excellent motor skills. Tachibana tries to get Ayano to join the badminton team, but finds out that Ayano hates badminton.
