Twitch Anime-thon

On Thursday, Twitch begins a free six-day anime marathon — featuring full seasons of 19 series from streaming service Crunchyroll.

The first show to stream, starting at 3:30 pm ET, will be Mob Psycho 100, about a boy with ESP “who has trouble expressing himself…. When his emotions surge to a level of 100%, something terrible happens to him.”

Then, at 9 pm, you can start six hours of Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid, about an “average office worker who lives a boring life…until she saves the life of a female dragon in distress. The dragon, named Tohru, has the ability to magically transform into an adorable human girl (albeit with horns and a long tail), who will do anything to pay off her debt of gratitude.”

On Friday, Twitch will stream Yuri!!! On ICE, about a defeated figure skating hopeful whose passion is reshaped “in a whole new way” by a five-time world champion. The show runs from 7:30 pm until 1 am Saturday morning. Here’s the first episode:

To watch the rest of Yuri!!! On ICE and the entire Twitch anime marathon, go to Twitch.tv/TwitchPresents starting Thursday, July 27, at 3:30 pm ET. The event wraps up with encore presentations of the three shows above starting Monday, July 31, at 9 pm, running through Tuesday, August 1, at 2 pm. To uncover the other 16 shows and their airtimes, visit Twitch’s schedule page.
