Crunchyroll announced on Wednesday that it will simulcast the Date A Live III, ENDRO!, The Quintessential Quintuplets, and B-PROJECT -Zeccho * Emotion- anime this winter.


Crunchyroll will begin streaming Date A Live III, the third television anime season based on Koushi Tachibana's Date A Live light novel series, on January 11. Crunchyroll has not yet confirmed the territories. The anime will have 12 episodes.

Crunchyroll describes the story:

Shido is just an ordinary school boy, but, he's been recruited to help seal Spirits—the mystical creatures responsible for the spacequakes that threaten mankind. There's just one catch: the only way to seal a Spirit is to make her fall in love with him. Now that he's saved the world once or twice, more trouble is headed his way, and there's only so much one boy can handle.

Keitaro Motonaga is returning to direct the anime at J.C. Staff (AIC PLUS+ and Production IMS produced the previous two series respectively). Hideki Shirane is returning to handle the series composition, and Koji Watanabe (key animator for first two seasons) is designing the characters. Four-member musical unit sweet ARMS will perform the opening theme song "I Swear," and Eri Yamazaki will perform the ending theme song "Last Promise."


The television anime adaptation of Negi Haruba's The Quintessential Quintuplets (Gotōbun no Hanayome) manga will premiere on Crunchyroll on January 10 at 5:00 p.m. EST. The stream will be available worldwide outside of Asia and the Middle East.

Kodansha Comics is releasing the manga digitally, and it describes the story:

One day, a poor high school second-year named Futaro Uesugi comes across a private tutoring gig with good pay. But his pupils are his classmates!! And they're quintuplets!! A-and they're all gorgeous girls, but they're also troublemakers who hate to study and are on the verge of flunking out! And his first task is simply gaining the sisters' trust?! Every day is a party! The curtain is rising on the Nakano quintuplets' quirky romantic comedy with five times the cute!!

Satoshi Kuwabara (Dagashi Kashi 2, Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal) is directing the series at Tezuka Productions (Dagashi Kashi 2, Black Jack). Keiichirō Ōchi is in charge of series composition (Hinamatsuri, La Corda d'Oro Blue Sky).

Studio Gokumi's original television anime Endro~! will premiere on Crunchyroll on January 12 at 1:30 p.m. EST in North America, Latin America, UK, Ireland, Scandinavia, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa.

Crunchyroll describes the story:

In the land of Naral Island, a land of magic and swords, humans and monsters live together. Once upon a time, there used to be a terrifying Demon Lord, but long, long ago the first Hero defeated the Demon Lord that appeared on Naral Island. The Demon Lord would revive again and again throughout the ages, but every time a Hero would appear to defeat it... Now these young girls attend an Adventurer's Academy to prepare them to defeat the Demon Lord that will one day rise again.

This is the beginning of a laid-back fantasy life with no sign of the Demon Lord for these four who hope to become a party of heroes.
