While Crunchyroll has acquired for simulcast La corda d’oro -Blue Sky-, there hasn’t been a lot out there about it which is somewhat normal for this genre. With the series debuting in Japan today, a new thirty second spot has landed to help promote it which plays up the characters nicely and gives us a taste of the song that they all perform as well. The property is based off of the manga of the same name by Yuki Kure which ran for seventeen volumes between 2004 and 2011 and has been released in full in English by Viz Media. The work was previously adapted into a twenty-five episode series which was released in 2010 in the US through Sentai Filmworks. The show also had a few TV specials that were broadcast in 2009.
The series will be available to Crunchyroll’s audience in the U.S.A, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Iceland, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Central and South America, and the Caribbeans.
Plot concept: Kyoya says that he was forced by his relatives to go to a concert in Yokohama with his childhood friend Kanade. However, he finds out that they both must transfer to a school there. All of the students work their hardest during the summer to prepare for a national competition.
