If you’re a fan of anime, you’re going to love the next Twitch marathon.

The social video platform has partnered with Crunchyroll, a leading destination for anime and manga, to produce a five-day marathon that will include more than 15 different beloved anime series. Featuring episodes from series such as Yuri on Ice, Mob Psycho 100, Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid, and Rokka: Braves of the Six Flowers, the marathon will begin on July 27 at 3:30 p.m. PT and run through Aug. 1.

Though Twitch has previously hosted marathons for television series like Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood and Mystery Science Theater 3000, this is the first anime marathon to stream on the platform. The full programming schedule will be announced on July 21.

“Anime content on Twitch always sparks a lot of positive feedback from our community given how gaming and anime culture have borrowed a lot from each other,” said Annie Berrones, director of emerging content marketing at Twitch.

Kun Gao, cofounder and general manager of Crunchyroll added, “We’re bringing two powerful fandoms together around our shared passions, and we look forward to introducing new viewers to some of our favorite anime series starting next weekend.”
