Hi guys! Spring time is here, which means a new season of anime, with brand new shows (as well as continuing ones). We've been working hard over the past months to prepare this~ This is only Part 1 and the first half, I'll be announcing much more in the next weeks! (This also doesn't include non-simulcast, catalog series we'll be launching). This is the follow-up to this post. Note: the actual start dates may change (if there are production delays or something). For this simulcast lineup, I've grouped the series into two categories:

1) New simulcasts - these are brand new shows that start from Episode 1 in Japan, which we also show on Crunchyroll on the same day.
2) Ongoing simulcasts - these are currently airing in Japan and won't end, which we currently also show on the same day on Crunchyroll.

New simulcasts:


REBORN!
Fridays 7:30pm PST - Available Now
Tsuna, a timid junior high student, is a failure at school, sports, and social life. But everything around Tsuna has been completely changed when a baby called Reborn!, who claims to be an Italian hit man from the Vongole family shows up. Reborn! was sent to groom Tsuna for his future life as a mafia boss of the family!

After a short while, Tsuna started to get involved into a couple of intense battles and overcomes many numerous trials and grows up surrounded with Reborn! and good fellows!




Shangri-La
Date and time TBA - Starts the first week of April
SHANGRI-LA is the story of a young woman fighting for her survival in a real "urban jungle." Only 18 years old, Kuniko Hojo finds herself at the heart of the battle for humanity's future when she discovers that the government which rules Atlas intends to continue marginalizing the less-privileged masses outside the tower - by force, if necessary.




La Corda D'Oro
~primo passo~ starts soon, and ~secondo passo~ Part 1 airs March 26, times TBA
Kahoko Hino, the main character, goes to Seiso Gakuen High School that specializes in music. Her school has two curriculums, the normal course and the music course. She was taking the ordinary course and having a normal life until one day, Lili the fairy gave her a magical violin. The following day, the competitors of the prestigious music contest are announced and Kahoko's name appears on the list. All the other competitors are elite students that take the music courses. How will the contest turn out?




Saki
Date and time TBA - Starts the first week of April
Saki - The Player is the story of a beautiful high school mahjong genius and her rivals. The story opens with the arrival of Saki who demonstrates her almost magical talent by instinctively playing the game in an extremely calculated manner so that she does not lose or gain even a point…




Chi's Sweet Home
Date and time TBA - Starts the first week of April
Chi's Sweet Home is a collection of sketches about little daily adventures experienced by the ex-stray cat Chi and its owner family. Every day is a discovery for the curious little protagonist!




Peeping Life
Time and date TBA
If you're a fan of shows like Comedy Central's "Shorties Watching Shorties" and independent style animation, with a sharp sense of humor, this is for you!

A series of comedy shorts, Peeping Life features popular comic duos ad-libbing around sticky situations that are not too uncommon in Japanese society. Take a break from the stresses of daily life, sit back and enjoy a good laugh!




Mainichi Kaasan (No page yet)
Date and time TBA - Starts the first week of April
Mainichi Kaasan (Everyday Mom) is based on the award-winning comic strip by Rieko Saibara about the ordinary life of a not-so-ordinary family: Mom is a popular cartoonist, the kids are frustratingly fun but have their moments, and Dad is just plain unreliable. Everyone is tied together by the insanity of it all. It¹s great but tough to be a mom!



Ongoing simulcasts: These shows need no introduction, so I didn't provide the synopses ;P


Naruto Shippuden
Thursdays 3:30am PST - Available Now




Gintama
Thursdays 1:30am PST- Available Now




Shugo Chara
Fridays 5pm PST - Available Now




Time of Eve
Episode 4 airs May 1st

Sound cool.

But are we able to have some movies on here that goes with some anime,or just anime is all we watch?

They seem girlish anime to me, but I hope more come out with some action.

New anime season on CR sounds promising except I still can't munch Reborn >.< Man it's not like I haven't tried but out of a thousand anime this one doesn't suit my palette :P! Otherwise on the line-up I saw La Corda D'oro, one of the serie I love that expresses music very differently and not so bad of a story xD. Seems like you got more philosophical this year 's spring hey ;p

The OP singer's crystal voice is melting my soul in La Corda D'oro. It's very sweet xD

You know the failure of this WHOLE system is only ONE point :p: let me recap it it's the REGIONAL ZONING for viewers ... albeit i'm not affected but it totally is uncool for others ;p Companies are stupid or what, what you want as a company is to be seen and heard of through your products... so, can some CEO explain to me the hell they do with their zoning, loading please wait... your your profits and advertisement channels will be cut in hallf or more with that kind of impossible regional zoning pannel. The more viewers you get the more you sell unless I'm mistaken popularity of a show brings cashflow heh =p???

You would trippled your viewers and subscribers since day one without this problem I do think so strongly :p

shangri-la is only 12 eps right?

sounds interesting and most likely going to be more action than girly as some are suggesting.

I'll keep an open mind for chi since many younger style anime are surprisingly good if you give them a chance.

now if they would announce that skip beat was being extended or a new season was in the works things would be rolling!

Don't underestimate something like Saki.

I have seen some really gripping shows about subjects you would not expect to be interesting at all.

Hikaru no Go and Shion no Ou for example. Very intense shows about Go and Shogi respectivly, I found both to be far more addictive than I had expected.

I don't know what Saki is going to be like but past experience has shown me some real gems where one least expects them.


Edit: just popped by the page for it. Art style is very cute show probably won't have the same kind of intensity as Shion or Hikaru but I'm still going to try it.
