Crunchyroll has also announced the next slate of new anime to join its Winter 2019 season. Both Rinshi!! Ekodachan and Rainy Cocoa SideG begin airing on January 8. The former is about a temp worker who lives in the countryside and "doesn't care much about guys" but does all she can to support the women in her community. The latter is a slice of life story about a woman who manages a cafe after being recruited to pay back a vase she broke. Another anime debuts on January 9, titled My Roommate is a Cat, which follows the adorable every day lives of a man and his cat.
Konosuba is one of the most popular comedies on Crunchyroll, first airing in the Winter 2016 season. The series follows the hilarious exploits of Kazuma Satō, a high school student who's killed and offered the chance to be reborn in a fantasy world. The goddess, Aqua, who's responsible for his resurrection is also extremely arrogant and teases Kazuma for dying embarrassingly, so when she tells him he's allowed to bring something of his choice with him to his new life, he takes revenge by forcing her to join him. Life in the new world is not kind to either of them, and things become even worse when they're joined by Megumin, an explosion-obsessed wizard who can only fire off one spell before she collapses from exhaustion, and Darkness, a masochistic crusader who can't even strike a still target. The story plays out in a series of fast-paced skits that also poke fun at MMO and RPG mechanics and quests.
