First up, Hakuoki Reimeiroku starts streaming for premium members at 10:30 AM PDT on Tuesday, July 10. As always, free members will have access to the new episodes a week later than premium members.
The Hakuoki series takes place during the Tokugawa era of Japanese history, which is named for the shogunate that ruled Japan immediately before the Meiji Restoration. Based on a video game series of the same name, Hakuoki spins historical fiction around the Japanese secret police, known as the Shinsengumi. This particular season is the third installment on the series, and it is a prequel to the others.
Another recent announcement from Crunchyroll revealed that they will also be streaming season two of Dog Days. The episodes will air on Saturdays at 9 AM PDT. Again, free members will be able to watch them one week after premium members.
The first season of Dog Days followed middle-school boy Cinque, who was summoned to the alternate universe of Flonyard by Princess Millhiore. Cinque had to become a hero to save the princess’ kingdom from an invading army. In season two, he returns to Flonyard with his friend Rebecca and his cousin Nanami as the war continues. If you haven’t seen season one yet, never fear, because Crunchyroll is also planning to make those episodes available soon as well.
If you want to watch episodes of either show in HD an hour after they air in Japan, you’ll need a premium membership with Crunchyroll. Premium memberships cost $6.95 per month, though there is a two-week free trial membership available. Students can obtain an extended trial that lasts 30 days by registering with a .edu email address.
