Anime brand Crunchyroll is premiering its first Italian dubs streaming this spring.
The list of series receiving Italian dubs includes:
- season one of “The Rising of the Shield Hero,” a dark fantasy isekai that follows Naofumi Iwatani in his journey to become the shield hero (Italian speakers can catch up on season one dubs, while following the season two simulcast each week);
- “My Dress-Up Darling,” a rom-com in which two opposite worlds collide as a shy boy and a popular girl find a connection via cosplay; and
- “Ranking of Kings,” a series that follows Prince Bojji, who is unable to hear or speak, but sets off on an adventure to prove that he’s a worthy heir with the help of a shadow named Kage.
Earlier this month, Crunchyroll announced the full slate of dubbed anime heading to the platform with 25 series streaming for fans in a mix of English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, German and Russian.
Crunchyroll connects anime and manga fans across 200-plus countries and territories. In addition to free ad-supported and subscription premium content, Crunchyroll serves the anime community across events, theatrical, games, consumer products, collectibles and manga publishing.
The Crunchyroll app is available on more than 15 platforms, including all gaming consoles.
Crunchyroll is an independently operated joint venture between U.S.-based Sony Pictures Entertainment and Japan’s Aniplex, a subsidiary of Sony Music Entertainment (Japan) Inc., both subsidiaries of Tokyo-based Sony Group Corp.
