Whats up guys,

We are continuing with the Winter 2011 simulcast announcements. Today, we are adding Cardfight!! Vanguard, Gosick, and Dragon Crisis to our lineup. The first episode will be launching at the following date and time:

Cardfight!! Vanguard - Monday, 1/7 at 4:30pm PST
Gosick - Friday, 1/7 at 10am PST
Dragon Crisis - Saturday, 1/10 at 11am PST

Cardfight!! Vanguard

The protagonist of this story, Sendo Aichi, is a timid boy in his third year of middle school. He had been living his life looking backward rather than forward, trying not to stand out. However, he had one thing that kept him going - the "Blaster Blade," a card from a card game that was given to him when he was little. That card is the reason why he begins to engage in Card Fights, something that changes his life drastically. The name of the card game is "Vanguard." The game takes place in a different planet called "Klay," and due to a never before seen play system, it becomes popular throughout the world.



Aichi, immediately attracted by Vanguard, meets friends such as Togura Misaki and Katsuragi Kamui, along with other rivals. Through friendly rivalry with them, Aichi begins to enjoy a fulfilling life. Aichi, however, has a goal: to once again battle with a Vanguard Fighter by the name of Kai Tosihki. Kai Toshiki is an aloof and cold-hearted high schooler who has outstanding abilities in the world of Vanguard. He is also the reason why Aichi started playing the game. For him, Toshiki is the person who saved him from his boring life and introduced him to Vanguard. In order to get better at Vanguard, Aichi puts his soul into it every day. He wishes that someday, he'll be able to battle Toshiki and have him recognize his worth.

Gosick takes place in 1924 in a small, made-up European country of Sauville. It centers on Kazuya Kujo, the third son of a Japanese Imperial soldier, who is a transfer student at St. Marguerite Academy and Victorique, a mysterious yet beautiful and brilliant girl who never attends class and spends her days reading the entire content of the library or solving mysteries that even detectives can't solve. They meet at St. Marguerite Academy, where urban legends and horror stories are all the rage.

Good to see more announcements, but I think I'll pass on this series. Expecting to watch Beelzebub though.

P.S. Anticipating the two other announcements for today.

Yeah, unless it is surprisingly highly acclaimed, this one is a pass for me too.
Also, it's really terrible how it's limited to only 4 countries (luckily, I'm in Canada but still...)

I'm glad that it will at least be getting subbed, even if it was an expected title.

Well whatever I'll give this a try as well when it comes out.

Also, its only going to be 12 episodes so for those card game anime fans this isn't going to be your usual long ~ series.

I might try it. But I've never understood the appeal of card game anime and manga... Most of them I've barely been able to stand 2 minutes of.

And the other two announced yesterday sound incredibly boring. Where's the epic stories?

I want shows like Toaru Majutsu no Index, or Fullmetal Alchemist, or Full Metal Panic.

Looks like St. Seiya with cards. 8 year olds might like card game anime but not this guy.

Have to agree with jerrac, we need good shows like the Index / Railgun series. Would love to see Crunchyroll get those up before Funimation butchers the quality and puts them on Hulu. (uggg....hulu.....baaaadd...)

That's exactly what it means. Its an upgrade from the last streams that TMS put up, which seemed to be North America only from all the forum complaints from the UK back in 2009 ... but a lot of other anime publishers have lifted their game well beyond that in the meantime.

Still, if y'all in Norway is going to miss one, Cardfight!! Vanguard! !! !!! probably is not the most painful one to miss. Pity the poor bouncy bouncy fans in Spanish America who are missing Card-dealer!! Bouncy Bouncy Rio.

Not a lot of epic stories premiering this Winter season. Look at the card they are working from! Actually, Winter season is normally the weakest ... not a lot of epic stories premiering in any Winter season.

Not going to happen, though ~ not without a cross-streaming deal with Funimation. DVD royalties are still worth a heap more dollars than streaming rights, and DVD dub royalties worth the most of all, so what Funimation is willing to dangle a DVD dub distribution license for, Funimation gets.

Winter is normally the weakest of the four seasons, and not normally the time that they start a year-long series, so Beezlebub is a get, even if a year-or-longer Shonen Jump comedy/action series may not be my cup of tea. Here's hoping that Crunchyroll is able to snatch a gem or two out of the broadcast season mostly made up of regurgitated High School plotlines that makes up this fairly limp Winter season.

First, someone needs to make the series in question. Have you checked the list of Winter 2011 anime to see if there are indeed any that you would deem an "epic story"?

Funimation holds the license to the three series you mentioned, so that should give you a clue why CR does not have them.

I would love to see CR license Index II for simulcast (even though only half the series remains to air), but although Funimation has not announced a license of it yet, I suspect the publisher will continue to withhold it from streaming in the U.S. (and therefore on CR) in hopes that they will.
