Here’s a quick synopsis of all the titles mentioned above, along with their latest trailers:
“Handyman Saito in Another World” narrates a story of a run-of-the-mill handyman Saito who has lived an average life. However, his life takes an extraordinary turn when he wakes up in another world full of warriors, elves, and wizards. Here, his skills as a handyman turn out to be quite nifty.
“Malevolent Spirits: Mononogatari” is about Kunato Hyoma who despises spirits known as tsukumogami. His grandfather sends him to Botan Nagatsuki, master of six friendly tsukumogami. Hyoma and Nagatsuki belong to the same clan that sends the spirits back to their world.
While both have had absolutely different experiences, will Hyoma come around?
“The Legend Of Heroes: Trails Of Cold Steel-Northern War” is based on the Trails of Cold Steel game series by Nihon Falcom. It focuses on Lavian Winslet, a member of the Northern Jaegers. She is assigned a spy mission in Erebonia to gather intel about a threat known as “The Imperial Hero”.
“Campfire Cooking In Another World With My Absurd Skill”, as the title suggests, talks about 27-year-old Tsuyoshi Mukoda. He gets transported to another world, and his only skill is “Online Grocery”, allowing him to get food items from modern Japan.
While he is initially disappointed, this skill actually turns out to be quite valuable.
“The Legendary Hero is Dead!” talks about Sion Bladan, a hero who was supposed to reseal the demon portal Hell’s Gate. However, he falls into a pit dug by Touka Scott and dies. Anri Haynesworth, a necromancer uses Touka’s soul to revive Shion.
Together with Yuna, the three set out to save the world from demons.
“Masamune-Kun’s Revenge R” is the second season of Masamune-kun’s Revenge. Crunchyroll is streaming the first season which tells the story of Masamune, who was rejected and insulted by Aki for being overweight.
Now with a changed appearance, Masamune plans to revenge by making her fall in love with him and then reject her.
“Sacrificial Princess And The King Of Beasts” is a unique take on the “Beauty and the Beast” theme. Leonhart receives female human sacrifices as a part of a peace treaty. Sariphi, the ninety-ninth sacrifice, shows no fear of him. Intrigued by her behavior, Leonhart allows her to live freely within the kingdom.
Crunchyroll will be streaming all seven titles outside of Asia.
