Heroman Coming to Crunchyroll

Posted on: March 31, 2010

Boys love robots!

Crunchyroll has added in the latest announcement in the race to for online streaming rights, and it’s a pretty interesting one – the East-meets-West Heroman. The simulcast will be available every Thursday at 3 AM Pacific time, and while I’m not going to stay up for it, I’m definitely going to add it to my morning ritual. The collaboration of the legendary Stan Lee with Studio Bones has me fascinated, and I really want to see how it all plays out. Hit the jump for the list of countries covered by Crunchyroll, as well as their official synopsis of the show.

Heroman will be available to everyone in the US, Canada, UK, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Iceland, Netherlands, Norway, Central and South America.

Heroman follows the story of Joey Jones, an ordinary boy without any sense of strength, who by chance comes into possession of a toy robot. Through an accident of comic book fashion, the toy becomes a giant robot, Heroman, and Joey his master. As Joey guides Heroman and teaches him right and wrong, so does Joey grow in his journey and become a hero in his own right. Now, they are the Earth’s only hope for survival against a militant alien invasion. Will Joey and Heroman be able to save the world?

It may be very early to get excited about the show. But after watching episode one I can affirm I’m hooked. Loving the style of the anime and the premise, it’s nice to have some thing outside the ‘harem’ or ‘fan service’ that actually suprises you.

I can only hope the future episodes are as entertaining. Again thanks for the information. Much appreciated. 🙂
