Tubi TV has added the Figure 17 anime, as well as the first half of the I’m Gonna Be An Angel anime. Both titles are streaming in Japanese with English subtitles.
The service has all 13 episodes of Figure 17 with their original 46-minute runtimes. The anime originally aired monthly from 2001 to 2002 with 46-minute episodes, but later re-aired weekly on TV Tokyo with episodes 2-12 split into two parts each, for a total of 24 episodes. Media Blasters released Figure 17 on DVD in North America.
Naohito Takahashi directed the anime at OLM and Shoji Yonemura handled series composition.
Tubi TV is streaming the first 13 of 26 episodes of I’m Gonna Be An Angel (Tenshi ni Narumon). Broccoli USA’s Synch-Point imprint released part of the anime in North America on VHS, and later released the first half on DVD. However, the company held off on releasing the second half because the title was not turning a profit. Broccoli closed its U.S. subsidiary in 2008.
Hiroshi Nishikiori directed the anime at animation Studio Pierrot in 1999.
