Crunchyroll to Stream Shugo Chara, Skip Beat Anime

Two TV Tokyo shōjo titles to join Naruto Shippūden on online service

The Crunchyroll website has announced on Wednesday that it will stream Shugo Chara!, Skip Beat!, and "many other" anime series from the Japanese broadcaster TV Tokyo. TV Tokyo and Crunchyroll had already announced that they will begin providing the latest episodes of the Naruto Shippūden anime series on January 8 within an hour of their Japanese broadcast. The Japanese news source BB Watch reported that Gintama is also one of the five anime titles that TV Tokyo will distribute overseas with English subtitles. TV Tokyo and Crunchyroll said that the website will move away from the user-uploaded content that have been its mainstay, and focus on "professionally-produced content […] approved by licensors."

The Shugo Chara! anime has been adapting Peach-Pit's popular magical girl manga of the same name since October 2007. Kenji Yasuda and Satelight's Shugo Chara!! Doki— sequel series began last month.

Director Kiyoko Sayama and the Hal Film Maker studio also premiered their television version of Yoshiki Nakamura's Skip Beat! shōjo manga in Japan last month. The story centers on a teenager named Kyōko who followed her childhood friend Shō to Tokyo as he pursues his show business dreams. Despite playing housekeeper for Shō, Kyōko overhears Shō dismissing her as a boring nobody. Furious, Kyōko vows to also become an actress and "defeat" Shō.

Thank you to ThatOneMan for the news tip.

To some, maybe most, yes, this is not good news. But to crunchyroll, as a business entity, it might be.
