Crunchyroll revealed four more additions to the anime catalog today, including the Space Warrior Baldios TV series, Hells, Sister Princess Re Pure, and some classic metal hero tokusatsu action in the form of Megabeast Investigator Juspion. Dig into the details for each new catalog title below.

Space Warrior Baldios

Launch Time: 1:00 pm PT

Territories: United States, Canada


Marin Reigan lost his father and his home when Gattler staged a coup, forcing their people to abandon their dying planet and invade another. Seeking vengeance, Marin pursued. But when he saw the world they planned to invade, Marin found a new mission: to protect the untarnished skies and seas of that blue planet –Earth! The battle will not be easy. Marin's technology is the only thing that can stand against Gattler's forces. But the Earthlings are not quick to trust him, and the ruthless enemy commander Aphrodia Is hungry for vengeance of her own. Can Marin gain the Earthlings' trust, avenge his father, and stop the war? Part of a darker breed of super robot shows that first flourished in the late 70s, the 34-episode Space Warrior Baldios uses the clash between two desperate races to explore themes of vengeance, trust, and the darkness of war.


Launch Time: 5:00 pm PT

Territories: United States, Canada


Rinne Amagane's new school is really something else. The other girls are ghoulish, the teachers are terrifying, and the headmaster is Hellvis, a demon in tight pants with a craving for rock'n' roll. There's just one problem: Rinne's not actually supposed to be here! Sanzu River Academy is nestled in the heart of Destinyland, and while it might sound like fun, it's literally Hell. And to get to Hell, Rinne had to have died–except, she never did. When Rinne meets others like her, living people in a world of the dead, she learns that Hellvis is more than just a hip-swaying schoolmaster, he's also the reason Hell has turned upside down! And that's just the start of the story, which stretches back all the way to the very first humans on Earth. Don't worry, though. So long as you have spirit, anything is possible!

Sister Princess Re Pure

Launch Time: 4:00 pm PT

Territories: United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa


Though they may come from different countries (and even different mothers) and have various temperaments and personalities, these 12 girls dote on their older teenaged brother. However, in RePure, all of the siblings live apart, which forces the (unnamed) brother to share his time with all of the sisters, from the elementary school-aged Hinako to the high school-aged Sakuya, who sees herself tied together to her brother by “the red string of fate.” The tomboy Mamoru just wants to catch up to her brother and be his physical equal and sporting companion, while Shirayuki dreams of an unlikely marriage, and Chikage uses magic in an attempt to seduce him. By turns funny, heartwarming and bittersweet, RePure focuses on the sibling interactions, but also spotlights an individual sister in each episode, exploring her psyche and relationship to her big brother. In the end, though, this gentle, romantic-tinged comedy culminates with a Christmas episode that brings together the baker's dozen of a family as they realize what makes them a family.

Megabeast Investigator Juspion

Launch Time: 2:00 pm PT

Territories: United States, Canada


Juspion's parents were killed by space pirates when he was just a baby. He was raised by a space hermit and scientist named Eijin, on a planet with the same name. After learning of the shocking prophecy, Eijin dispatches Juspion on a quest to fight the Megabeasts and defeat Satan Gorth. He travels from planet to planet until finally arriving on Earth. Wearing a special suit, he has super human powers and a transforming spaceship named the Daileon. Along with his gynoid companion Anri, and a baby alien creature named Miya , they will try to put an end to Satan Gorth's evil plans!
