Both anime begin streaming on Wednesday

Crunchyroll announced on Wednesday that it is adding the Kamen no Maid Guy and Soul Link anime to its catalog. The company began streaming both anime on Wednesday in the United States and Canada.

The 12-episode Kamen no Maid Guy anime premiered in 2008. The series is based on Maruboro Akai's comedy manga of the same name.

Crunchyroll describes the series:

Service with a savage smile... That's me, Maid Guy!

One day, high school student Naeka Fujiwara finds herself the near-future inheritor of vast wealth. But with potential wealth comes villains determined to steal it, even if it means taking Naeka's life. Therefore her mega-wealthy grandfather hires a brawny, commando-like maid to protect Naeka until her 18th birthday, which is when she can legally inherit the fortune. His name is Kogarashi, or just Maid Guy! Of course, Kogarashi is well-equipped to do the cooking and cleaning chores as well, since Naeka is completely inept when it comes to household duties. Between his steel body and various secret weapons, the super-maid solves all kinds of problems, even if he ends up creating many more!

The Kamen no Maid Guy manga launched in Fujimi Shobo's Monthly Dragon Age magazine in 2004. Akai ended the manga in 2012, and the series received 15 compiled book volumes. The manga also inspired an original anime video in 2008.

The 12-episode Soul Link anime premiered in 2006. The anime is based on the visual novel of the same name, which MangaGamer released in English.

Crunchyroll describes the series:

The happy reunion between siblings, friends, and lovers aboard the space station Aries is short-lived, as a group of heavily-armed terrorists invades. A majority of crew members and tourists evacuates, leaving a small group of fresh-faced military cadets, their tough-as-nails commander, and a resourceful young officer to survive while trying to keep the terrorists from bombarding Earth with nuclear weapons. Soon, though, both cadets and terrorists realize there's a bigger threat in their midst, in the form of a traitor with a bioengineered virus. Making matters worse, the genius officer is taken prisoner, leaving his comparatively average younger brother to lead the underdog effort.

Discotek licensed and released the anime on DVD in 2017.
