Full Story

So the Autumn anime season is upon us and it’s that time of the season when we find out which titles have been picked up for streaming. Which titles take your fancy? Let us know on Twitter with the Otaku News account. At the moment, we here in the UK and Ireland rely on US companies for our streaming options for the most part, so this list is largely going to feature US titles that also have streaming rights here as well. Click on the text title on each entry to go to the platform of your choice (if more than one platform is streaming the same title).

The Crunchyites have been busy this season with a massive 45 titles for streaming in the UK and Ireland (they’ve announced a total of 50 titles but 5 so far have been US only) so we’ll all be very busy trying to get through them. Here are the breakdowns for each show from the Crunchyroll synopsis.

Various other unique, silly-but-cute VocabBot characters appear throughout the series, challenging Heybot and Nejiru to one VocabBattle after another. And thus begins the day-to-day adventures of Heybot and Nejiru as they strive to win VocabBattles and collect more screws!
