Since many mangas are turned into anime, most fans are eager to keep up with the latest episodes. Places like Crunchyroll, VRV, Funimation, ect, offer simulcast viewing. Depending on where you live, it can be within a few hours or a day of the new shows release. This makes it great for streamers who may not live in the same country, or might not get access to the regular broadcast. Two anime shows that caught my eye are ElDlive and Blue Exorcist: Kyoto Saga
ElDlive centers around middle schooler, Chuta Kokonose who is socially awkward on top of, hearing a voice in his head. After being recruited by the outer space police force named ElDlive, he discovers the voice he has heard for many years is an alien symbiont. This symbiont is a rare breed of aliens who learn and develop along with their hosts. Trying to balance adolescence, confidence, and catching dangerous extraterrestrials; Chuta has a lot on his plate.
Everything about this anime is cute, action filled, plus interesting. The episodes keeps me laughing, reminiscing about being a pre-teen, and out loud commenting on stupid mistakes the characters make. The title sequence is wonderful with the upbeat music to get you excited about the continuation of the story. New episodes are release on Sundays. Check with your provider on times.
Blue Exorcist: Kyoto Saga is the second season in the series. I recommend watching the first Blue Exorcist just to get a base for the theme. The story continues with brothers Rin and Yukio Okumara attempting to venture past the battle of Assiah (human realm), and Gehenna, (demons realm) failed merger.
The animation seems a bit more like the artistry found in the manga version, Ao no Ekusoshisuto, then it’s first season. Also, you get to see more of Rin’s immature nature and Yukio’s cold demeanor. The producers do a wonderful job ending each episode at parts where you have no choice but to watch the next one. This Shonen type (manga targeted towards men or boys featuring characters between the ages of 8-18ish) is a “must save” in you queue. Current episodes hit the airwaves on Fridays.
