Hey guys

Right now the economy’s rough. Things aren’t looking good…so that’s why we’ve decided to do our part, all day Sunday with FOUR!!!! FREE!!!! SIMULCASTS that exclusively premiere on Crunchyroll!!!!

This Sunday (and every sunday this season), starting at 10:00 A.M. (PST), we’re going to be showing 4 simulcast titles, 4 FREE, 4 YOU!!!!


We’re going to kick things off with:
NATSU NO ARASHI! (10:00 AM PST)

Another fantastic TV Tokyo title, NATSU NO ARASHI! – also known as Stormy Summer – is based off the manga written by Jin Kobayashi, creator of School Rumble!

NATSU NO ARASHI! starts off with the main character, Yasaka - in a chance encounter - meeting an older high school student, named Arashi. Just his luck, Yasaka finds out she is in fact a ghost, as the two take off on an unusual journey together!
The events that transpired at the coffee house will kick off an unforgettable summer holiday with an amazing story that is guaranteed to captivate audiences of all types!~




Saki – The Player immediately follows that 10:30 AM (PST)

This show is for all you mahjong players out there or if you were ever interested in playing mahjong (any maybe moe fans too -_-). This anime is heralded as being one of the most exciting mahjong-based shows. Looks like TV Tokyo has another hit on their hands!

Need to know more? Check this out:

Saki – The Player is a cross between sports action and high school drama that revolves around a girl's spiritual growth through a tactical and adventuresome mahjong competition with keen rivals all aiming for the high school club championship. What makes it different from traditional mahjong-themed pieces is the character that are all colorful and charming whose personalities are far from being dark, cunning or cowardly. 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 never loses or gains even a point...”




Shangri-la, produced by the good folks at GONZO, is something that I’ve been looking forward to watching and will kick off at 6:00 PM (PST).

A fantastic piece by Range Murata, creator of Last Exile and Blue Submarine No. 6, Shangri-la is the story of a young woman fighting for her survival in a real "urban jungle" after the world is turned into a jungle because of global warming taking over the globe. 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 marginalising the less-privileged masses outside the tower - by force, if necessary.

As an extra bonus, we've got a FREE VIRTUAL ITEM that goes along with this series! Head straight to the Shangri-la page here, and pick up the main character - Kuniko Hojo's - boomerang!!! Aside from it looking suuper cool it's also FREE =D



Kigurumikku – an AIC production – rounds off the line-up at 11:00 PM (PST).

Kigurumikku is a quirky show about three high spirited girls Azuki Edomae, Mutsumi Mutsuki and Serika Shihodo, as they put on their "KIGURUMI" costumes instantly transforming them into the super heroes: Kigurumikku-Swan, Kigurumikku-Falcon and Kigurumikku-Swallow.

Follow these super-girls as they defend Minamachi City and bring peace to the town.




I'd also like to send a special thank you to TV Tokyo, GONZO and AIC, as they are letting us air the first episode for everyone to watch for FREE =)
(pending territory restrictions for some countries…ugh...I know its annoying, but we're still working on solving this issue)

If any of these shows really grabs you, please support the animators by getting an anime membership here. Remember, Crunchyroll is the only place you can watch these legally while supporting the animators. Only with your support can animators keep making more great animation in the future~!

Hopefully these 4 animes will start your dread of another workday, school day or Monday off right! Hope you guys enjoy it =)

Yay simulcasts! Thanks CR, TV Tokyo, Gonzo, and AIC!

Any chance other companies are going to jump on the CR revolution soon? Meaning domestic ones as well like Viz Media, FUNimation, etc. Several are already streaming videos online anyway, why haven't they already included Crunchyroll as an outlet? I want all of my anime here! I mean, Viz is already tied to the Naruto episodes that were uploaded here by TV Tokyo anyway (anyone can tell this by their logo being displayed at the end of many of the uploaded videos)... It shouldn't be that difficult for them to include us.
