There’s good news people who are excited about Azur Lane: Bisoku Zenshin!’s anime adaptation, but aren’t fluent in Japanese and don’t have a reliable way to see the show. the 4-koma series will be streaming outside Japan too. Crunchyroll will have Azur Lane: Slow Ahead in January 2021. [Thanks, Anime News Network!]
We don’t know details on when the show will begin streaming via Crunchyroll. The official English Twitter account only confirmed it will be available there.
For those curious about what the show might be like, looking at some of the localized 4-koma manga might help. Yostar sometimes shares them on the English Twitter account. Here are four from the first chapter, which introduce Javelin, Ayanami, Laffey, and Z23.
