Crunchyroll to simulcast Samurai Flamenco, Yowapeda

0

Superheroes and competitive cycling

Crunchyroll has just announced that they'll be adding two more simulcasts to their upcoming Fall line-up, namely Samurai Flamenco and Yowapeda. Like all their simulcasts, the shows will be made available first to premium subscribers, with the first episode of Samurai Flamenco airing October 10th at 10:30 AM, PST and Yowapeda on October 7th at 11:00 AM PST. Free users will be able to catch each episode one week after their initial broadcast. 

If you're not sure which one of these will interest you most, Samurai Flamenco is a action-comedy about a male model who decides he's want be a superhero and fight crime despite his lack of super powers or high-tech gadgetry -- sort of like Kick-Ass, or like a poor-man's Bruce Wayne. He's joined in his efforts to fight crime by a police officer who accidentally discovers his true identity. The series is directed by Takahiro Omori, who's previous work includes some of our favorite shows, such as Durarara!!, and Baccano! so I'm looking forward to covering it for Annotated Anime. 

If sports is more you thing, Yowapeda is high school drama about three teens who end up joining a competitive cycling club. Like Prince of Tennis or Slam Dunk, I'm expecting the series to feature over-the-top action, and numerous training montages. Maybe it'll even teach us a thing or two about cycling, though I can't imagine there's more to it than pedaling. I guess we'll find out.
