The television anime of Sun Takeda's Gleipnir manga already premiered on Sunday, and Ani-One is already streaming the anime's first episode.
Funimation is streaming the series in North America, and it describes the series:
Gleipnir follows typical high schooler Kagaya Shuichi after he discovers that he can turn into a cartoon dog with a gun. Yes, you read that right. Kagaya, after finding that one of his classmates is trapped in a fire, discovers that he can turn into a dog with a giant gun. He saves the girl, and the two share the knowledge of Kagaya's secret.
But Kurea Aoki has other motives. She's on the hunt for her family's killer—her sister. Just how far will she go for retribution? And at what cost to Kagaya?
Kazuhiro Yoneda (Yona of the Dawn, Kabukibu!) is directing the anime at Pine Jam. Shinichi Inotsume (The Price of Smiles, PERSONA 5 the Animation) is supervising the series scripts, and Takahiro Kishida (Baccano!, Haikyu!!) is designing the characters. Ryōhei Sataka is composing the music. H-el-ical// (former Kalafina member Hikaru Masai) is performing the anime's opening theme song, and Mili are performing the ending theme song "Ame to Taieki to Nioi" (Rain, Bodily Fluids, and Smell).
The television anime of Kei Toume's Sing "Yesterday" for Me (Yesterday o Utatte) manga already premiered on Saturday, and Ani-One is already streaming the anime's first episode.
The coming-of-age story follows a university graduate named Rikuo who has not been able to find permanent employment after college, a mysterious woman named Haru who has a pet crow, and Rikuo's former university classmate Shinako.
The series will have 12 television episodes, plus an additional six episodes that will only be available via streaming.

The story follows the incredibly wealthy Daisuke Kanbe (Yusuke Onuki) who audaciously solves cases in unconventional ways.
