posted on by Alex Mateo
Crunchyroll announced on Thursday that it is adding the VS Knight Lamune & 40 Fire television anime and the Kyo kara Maoh! R original video anime (OVA) to its catalog. The company will begin streaming both anime in the United States and Canada on Thursday at 6:00 p.m. EDT.
The 26-episode VS Knight Lamune & 40 Fire anime debuted in Japan in 1996.
Crunchyroll describes the series:
The sequel series to NG Knight Lamune & 40! In this new story, Baba Lamunade (son of Baba Lamune) plays a mysterious video game he bought cheap, which reveals he is the newest incarnation of the legendary hero Lamuness who saved Dokidoki Space 5,000 years ago.
The anime is the sequel to the NG Knight Lamune & 40 anime, which Crunchyroll began streaming in June from Discotek. The Lamune anime franchise also spawned the Knights of Lamune & EX, Knights of Lamune & 40 DX, and Knights of Lamune OVAs.
The five-episode Kyo kara Maoh! R OVA shipped in 2007 to 2008. Crunchyroll describes the series:
The five-episode Kyo kara Maoh! R OAV miniseries picks up during the chaotic aftermath of Kyo kara Maoh! season 2.
Yuri continues to split his life between being a peacemaking Demon King in another world and an average high school student (failed tests and all) back in Tokyo.
The Great Demon Kingdom is rebuilding and everyone decides to share the joy that King Yuri is back by holding a festival in town that draws in old friends, a frenemy or two, and just plain bad guys.
Discotek will release Kyo kara Maoh! R on Bu-ray Disc in Japanese with English subtitles on November 26. Discotek will be the first company to release Kyo kara Maoh! R on Blu-ray Disc in any region. Crunchyroll began streaming the first and second "seasons" (episodes 1-78) of the Kyo kara Maoh! anime in May.
