Kurenai Sneaks into Anime Network Online
Posted by: Rai | July 13, 2012
Amidst the new releases (first of many), and the Friday the 13 special, a new show has managed to sneak into the lineup with no one noticing. Aptly named, Kurenai premieres today on the Online Player. Check out more details on this anime and it's cute as all hell mini protagonist:
He’s only sixteen, but Kurenai Shinkurou is already both a martial arts master and professional mediator with a long track record of resolving disputes. Yet when given the assignment on protecting Murasaki Kuhoin, Kurenai may have been dealt more than he can handle. Even though she is only seven, her very rich and extremely powerful family are guaranteed to take this job directly into the danger zone.
Kurenai ep. 1 - Extreme Night is now available to watch online. Whoop!
