Crunchyroll Scores Omamori Himari

A new simulcast for Crunchyroll!


The latest Crunchyroll simulcast has just been announced and it's the anime adaptation of Omamori Himari. The story revolves around a boy who has a unique bodyguard: a sword-bearing catgirl  spirit, who protects the boy-- Yuuto --because his family wards demons away. (An "omamori" is a protection charm; Yuuto starts out with the charm and then has to "replace" it with Himari, hence the title.)

The show will start on Thursday January 7th at 9am on Crunchyroll, and will be available in the United States, Canada, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, and the United Arab Emirates. Blah blah blah, paid users get it right away, free users wait a week, etc. Press release pending!

Let's see...if they're announced a January 7th title today, maybe Durarara!! (a January 8th title) will be tomorrow?...

Yawn.  Doesn't every boy have an armed catgirl spirit guardian?

Dig Deeper into Crunchyroll

Originally created as something of a specialty YouTube for anime and other Japanese media and consisting primarily of illicit fansubs, in 2008 CrunchyRoll established deals to legally distribute some popular anime series simultaneous to their Japanese airing.
