Crunchyroll to stream The Morose Mononokean, confirms launch dates for Berserk and ReLIFE

Crunchyroll have confirmed a couple more summer anime to add to their schedule, as well as beginning to list the exact dates and times that they will begin streaming. First up for the newly announced series is The Morose Mononokean, launching on July 3rd at 11:30am EDT. The show will be available to view in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Iceland, the Netherlands, Latin America (Central and South America including Caribbean), and German and French speaking Europe, and the streaming service have described the story as follows:

“Exorcism” is the art of sending yokai who have somehow wandered into the living world back into the underworld, where they belong.

One day Hanae Ashiya, a high school student who’s been haunted by a yokai, happens to find the contact information of an exorcist called the “Mononokean” and pays him a visit. The exorcist he meets is a morose-looking young man, Haruitsuki Abeno, and for various reasons Ashiya ends up working for the Mononokean…

And so the story of the exorcist duo Ashiya and Abeno, and the yokai they meet in their adventures, begins.

Amanchu! has also been confirmed for July 8th at 11:30am EDT, and will be available in the United States (and its territories), Canada, Latin America (Central and South America including Caribbean), the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Scandinavia, and the Netherlands. No description has been provided for the anime by Crunchyroll, but the manga’s synopsis reads:

Hikari Kohinata is a cheerful 15-year-old girl who lives near the ocean and she spends much of her time diving as a result. On her first day of high school, she meets a teacher who also likes scuba diving. There’s also a 16-year-old classmate, Futaba, who gets dragged along in Hikari’s maelstrom as soon as they meet at school.

Meanwhile, the previously announced addition Berserk has been given a July 1st streaming date to match its Japanese premiere. It will be available from 7:30am PT for Crunchyroll members worldwide, except for Asia, New Zealand and Australia, with the series described as follows:

Strike with your iron.

“That night” comes once again… The night of battle where the “Black Swordsman” roars.

The “Berserk” manga is the pinnacle of Japanese dark fantasy and an overwhelming presence in the Japanese entertainment world. Extremely popular not only in Japan but all over the world, a new anime adaptation of the manga finally gets underway.

Spurred by the flame raging in his heart, the Black Swordsman Guts continues his seemingly endless quest for revenge. Standing in his path are heinous outlaws, delusional evil spirits, and a devout child of god. Even as it chips away at his life, Guts continues to fight his enemies, who wield repulsive and inhumane power, with nary but his body and sword—his strength as a human.

What lies at the end of his travels? The answer is shrouded in the “night.”

Strain your eyes and stare into the dark!

And finally, ReLIFE will also begin on July 1st at 8:00am PT for all territories, except for Japan, China, North Korea and Syria. Premium members will be able to watch episodes 2-13 later that same day, with further episodes becoming available at a later date for free members. The series is described by Crunchyroll as follows:

Arata Kaizaki (27) quit the job he landed after graduation in only three months. His life did not go well after that. Now his parents are threatening to stop sending money, and want him to come back to the country. He has no friend or girlfriend to share his troubles with…as he hits rock bottom a strange man named Ryo Yoake appears. Yoake invites Kaizaki to join a societal rehabilitation program for NEETs called ReLife. This program uses a mysterious drug to make him look younger, and sends him back to high school for a year…
