Crunchyroll Adds Bludgeoning Angel Dokuro-chan, Kimagure Orange Road: The Movie Anime to Catalog

Anime began streaming in U.S., Canada on Thursday

Crunchyroll announced on Thursday that it has added the Bludgeoning Angel Dokuro-chan and Kimagure Orange Road: I Want to Return to That Day anime to its catalog. Both anime began streaming in the United States and Canada on Thursday.

Crunchyroll describes Bludgeoning Angel Dokuro-chan:

Imagine a world where the secret to immortality has been discovered, causing women to stop aging by the time they turn twelve. Sounds like it might be a perfect playground for a discoverer with less-than-wholesome interests, doesn't it? That's exactly why the Big Man Upstairs sends Dokuro-chan, one of his angelic assassins, into the past to "deal" with the sicko who messed with nature!But Dokuro-chan decides instead to move in with her target, Sakura Kusakabe, and keep him too occupied to find eternal life. Funnily enough, the path of nonviolence leads to a fountain of blood, as Dokuro-chan accidentally kills Sakura on an almost-daily basis only to resurrect him with a magical chant moments later.

Bludgeoning Angel Dokuro-chan is based on Masaki Okayu's novel series. An eight-episode series of shorts aired in 2005, and then the Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan Second OAV with four episodes launched in 2007. Discotek Media will release both series on Blu-ray Disc with both English and Japanese audio in the first quarter of 2020.

Crunchyroll describes Kimagure Orange Road: I Want to Return to That Day:

As college nears, Kyosuke and Madoka finally end up revealing their feelings to eachother, but how will Hikaru react when she's told, and can things between the three of them ever be the same?

The film debuted in 1988 as a sequel of the 1987 Kimagure Orange Road television anime series. AnimEigo previously released the film on DVD, LaserDisc, and VHS in Japanese with English subtitles.
