The catalog selection on Crunchyroll is about to grow even more robust with the addition of four more titles. Today’s update throws EAT-MAN ’98, Cosmo Warrior Zero, Elemental Gelade, and 8 Man After into the mix, so read on for details! 

 

EAT-MAN ’98

Launch Time: May 15 at 3:00pm Pacific Time

Territories: United States and Canada

 

Synopsis: 

This retake of Eat-Man shifts the saga of Bolt Crank closer to that of the original story penned by Akihito Yoshitomi. In it, the world is one of contrasting extremes, of high technology but low lifestyles, all mixed with fairy tale-like super science. Bolt returns as the best explorer in the world, a mercenary who, while only accepting jobs he finds moral, always gets the job done… even if he sometimes takes them to ironic extremes in order to do the right thing! Possessed of his own strange power, Bolt can eat anything and then later recreate it, which he uses to help him solve the problems his explorer lifestyle often puts him up against. See the fable that was originally envisioned in these twelve episodes!

 

 

Cosmo Warrior Zero

Launch Time: May 15 at 5:00pm PT

Territories: United States and Canada

 

Synopsis:

The story of two true men plays out on the grim stage of space. Warrius Zero is a disgraced space captain from the Earth Federation. He lost all hope along with his family and the war against the Machine Men. His opponent is Captain Harlock, a space pirate who has refused to surrender to the Machine Men alongside the rest of humanity. The weapons they fight with are respect, honor, and bravery. Their battle will change the destiny of mankind forever. 

 

 

Elemental Gelade

Launch Time: May 15 at 3:00pm PT

Territories: United States and Canada

 

Synopsis: 

Cou, the bumbling rookie of the “Red Lynx” pirate squadron has just discovered the treasure of a lifetime! A mighty member of the ancient race of Edel Raids. Ren, at first glance, seems to be a shy and defenseless girl, but she holds within her a power that many are willing to kill for. When Cou takes it upon himself to protect Ren on her journey to a mysterious place called Edel Garden, he immediately makes new friends and dangerous enemies. 

 

 

8 Man After

Launch Time: May 15 at 5:00pm PT

Territories: United States and Canada

 

Synopsis:

Since the recent disappearance of 8 Man, a mysterious cyborg super hero created by Professor Tani, the city reels under “terrorist” assaults from murderous drug-crazed street gangs. Hazuma, an ex-cop who now runs his own detective agency, is hired to track down a missing scientist alleged to have made off with cybernetics from Professor Tani’s laboratory. The missing hardware is reappearing as psycho-activated weapons grafted onto the bodies of the rogue “cyper-junkies.” During his investigation Hazuma is brutally murdered. Dr. Tani uses Hazuma as a bio-template to replace the missing 8 Man. As a cover, 8 Man maintains the original persona of the detective, yet must cope with the duality of the cynical private eye and maintain the balance as an emotionless super-android hero.
