Crunchyroll Streams Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans With English Dub
Crunchyroll announced on Tuesday that it will begin streaming the English-dubbed version of the Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans anime, and has added the Gakuen Alice and A Town Where You Live anime.
Crunchyroll will add five new dubbed episodes of Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans every Tuesday at 10:00 p.m. EST starting on February 28. The episodes will be available for all members in the United States, Canada, Latin America, Australia, New Zealand, Europe, South Africa, the Middle East, and North Africa.
The 25-episode first season premiered in Japan in October 2015. Daisuki, Gundam.info, and Hulu streamed the series as it aired. Crunchyroll and Funimation streamed new episodes one week after they aired. Adult Swim‘s Toonami block began airing the anime with an English dub last June. The ongoing second season premiered in October 2016.
Gakuen Alice is available for all members in the United States and Canada. The first two episodes are also available on Nozomi Entertainment‘s YouTube channel. Crunchyroll describes the story:
Mikan and Hotaru are best friends! (Well, according to Mikan, anyway. Hotaru doesn’t seem to care.) Then one day, Hotaru is escorted away in a fancy black car, apparently scouted by a school in Tokyo called “Alice Academy.” Crushed at the loss of her favorite pal, Mikan scurries after her, determined to enroll, too! But Alice Academy is a mysterious place. Can Mikan tough it out in a school where explosions, superpowers, giant baby chicks and axe-wielding teddy bears are the norm? But it’s not as if she has a choice, because once students enter Alice Academy, there’s no escape!
Right Stuf licensed the anime, and released it on DVD in 2009, and again in 2011 and 2016.
A Town Where You Live is also available on Crunchyroll in the United States and Canada. Nozomi Entertainment has recently been adding the episodes to its YouTube channel, and the first 10 are currently avaialble. Crunchyroll describes the story:
All his friends said he was just being “stupid” and “delusional,” but Haruto just couldn’t give up on her… Yuzuki, the girl that showed up on his doorstep one day, stole his heart the next, and then left just as abruptly as she arrived. With the faint hope of rekindling the romance they’d shared, Haruto decides to pursue her, moving away from the rural outskirts of Hiroshima to the big city of Tokyo.
However, soon after arriving, he learns that Yuzuki has seemingly moved on and has a new boyfriend. No matter how hard Haruto tries, she refuses to see him and won’t tell him the reason why she left him. He could move on, as many have urged him to, but is that truly what Yuzuki wants? He could try winning her back – after all, he’s already moved to the town where she lives – but how much farther will he need to go?
Right Stuf licensed the series and released it on Blu-ray Disc last October.
