Crunchyroll began streaming the unaired Steins;Gate 0 episode on Friday. The episode, considered episode 24, is titled "Valentine's of Crystal Polymorphism -Bittersweet Intermedio-." In Japan, the episode shipped with the sixth and final DVD and Blu-ray Disc release for the series on Friday.
The anime premiered in Japan on April 11, and the second half premiered on July 18 with episode 14. Crunchyroll streamed the series with English subtitles as it aired, and Funimation's dub for the series premiered on April 30.
The anime adapts the follow-up game of the same name, and all of the cast members reprised their roles from previous games and anime.
Kenichi Kawamura (Qualidea Code, SoniAni: Super Sonico the Animation) directed the anime at WHITE FOX (Girls' Last Tour, Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World-). Jukki Hanada (Love Live! Sunshine!!, Nichijō) returned from the previous anime to handle series composition. Tomoshige Inayoshi (Buddy Complex, Battle Spirits: Sword Eyes), who was an episode animation director for the first television anime, designed the characters based on huke's original designs.
Crunchyroll also announced on Saturday that it added the Why Did You Come to Japan? live-action variety program. The series features hosts approaching foreigners on the street to ask them about whey they are visiting Japan. The show is available in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Sweden, Norway, the Netherlands, Finland, Denmark, Iceland, and Latin America. Crunchyroll will add new episodes every other week, but the company is not releasing the episodes in sequential order.
