Crunchyroll announce Mob Psycho 100 streaming details and correct schedule for Ange Vierge

Today (July 7th), Crunchyroll revealed their streaming details for another anticipated series, Mob Psycho 100, adapted from the manga by One Punch Man creator ONE. The first episode launches on July 11th at 12:30pm EDT, and will be available worldwide except for Asia. Crunchyroll give the anime the following summary:

Kageyama Shigeo, a.k.a. “Mob,” is a boy who has trouble expressing himself, but who happens to be a powerful esper. Mob is determined to live a normal life and keeps his ESP suppressed, but when his emotions surge to a level of 100%, something terrible happens to him! As he’s surrounded by false espers, evil spirits, and mysterious organizations, what will Mob think? What choices will he make? The anime based on the original story by ONE, the idol of the webcomic world and creator of One-Punch Man, is coming your way with animation by leading animation studio Bones!

A corrected streaming date for Ange Vierge was also announced, with the show now confirmed as airing on July 9th at 2:00pm EDT. Here’s how Crunchyroll describe the show:

One day, out of the blue, the five worlds were linked together.
Our blue world, Earth.
The black world, ruled by night and magic, Darkness Embrace.
The red world, protected by prayer and by the gods: Tera Rubily Aurora.
The white world, managed by science and computers: System White Egma.
The green world, governed by weapons and armies: Glynnesert.
Angels, demons, fairies, witches, goddesses.
What were once just characters in fantasy stories were now real.
Meanwhile, in each of the worlds, there was an emergence of girls possessing special “Exceed” abilities. The girls would come to be known as the Progress, and they were gathered at the massive Seiran Academy.
There, the girls would meet.
They establish a bond, and they confront the common enemy threatening all five worlds, Ouroboros.
The world is on the verge of doom. Only the Progress can save it.

Before that, on Tuesday (July 6th), Crunchyroll made their initial announcements that they will stream the real-time animated Naria Girls (Maho Shojo? NariaGirls) and This Art Club Has a Problem! (Kono Bijutsu-bu niwa Mondai ga Aru!). The latter will begin on July 7th at 3:30pm EDT, and will be available to the US (and its territories), Canada, Latin America (Central and South America including Caribbean), the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Scandinavia, and the Netherlands. As for Naria Girls, further scheduling details will be announced at a later date.

Crunchyroll describe Naria Girls:

The title “NariaGirls” is a Japanese pun for “Nariagaru” (rising in the world). The story centers on three girls: Urara, Hanabi and Inaho, who decide to make an anime series by themselves to become nationally popular characters. The theme that they choose to gain broad popularity from children to adult anime fans is “Magical Girl.” Will they be able to produce a one-cour magical girl anime successfully and become popular characters?

And they summarise This Art Club Has a Problem! as follows:

An ordinary arts club at an ordinary middle school, Tsukimori Middle School.

One member, Uchimaki Subaru, wastes his abundant talent trying to draw his perfect 2D waifu. Another, Usami Mizuki, can’t stop thinking about the loser that is Uchimaki-kun. Then there is the club president, who, despite being asleep all the time, seems to care for the two, and another vague, sketchy member, Colette.

Today, yet again, in this art club full of mild disappointments, a problem arises.
