Ross founded the UK Anime Network waaay back in 1995 and works in and around the anime world in his spare time.

Fans of the online RPG Grand Summoners will get the chance to play as Crunchyroll's foxy mascot Hime, and her companion Yuzu, in an event starting August 28th.

From the Press Release:

Crunchyroll-Hime will be summonable in Kitsune Herofest Adventure alongside other legendary Grand Sumoners heroes. 

Crunchyroll-Hime will also have themed Equips available in Equip Summons. Crunchyroll-Hime will be the first Fire-type healer-attacker combo in the game and has the unique ability to revive herself once per battle.

Grand Summoners will be celebrating Crunchyroll-Hime’s arrival with two login bonuses featuring free rare items and in-game currency. Players logging in during Crunchyroll Expo will be treated to surprise gifts in addition to Hime’s chat-sticker filled login bonus.

Voice actress Rian Tachibana will voice Crunchyroll Hime during the collaboration. Tachibana’s previous credits include “Patlabor,”  “Persona 4: The Golden,” and “Selia” in “Grand Summoners” among many others. 

The Crunchyroll Hime in game event will run from August 28th to October 31st.

“Grand Summoners” is a top-grossing, anime-inspired JRPG, published in partnership with Good Smile Company and NextNinja. The game has previously featured popular anime series for in-game collaborations such as “Goblin Slayer,” “That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime,” “Golden Kamuy” and “KILL la KILL” among others.

A detailed behind-the-scenes creation of Crunchyroll-Hime will be featured in an exclusive web-documentary from Crunchyroll’s Twitter, Facebook and Instagram shortly following Crunchyroll-Hime’s release.

Grand Summoners is currently available for IOS and Android devices.
