Whats up everyone,

I know most of you are buried deep in the middle of this very heavy simulcast season. Once you're finished watching Naruto Shippuden, Sword Art Online, and all of the other 30-ish titles, you should check out the 2 catalog titles we're going to release! We're going to start off with: Blue Drop!



Premium users will get all episodes as soon as they are available, with free members getting 2 episodes per week. New episodes will be released every Thursday at 5 pm.

For those new to the series, here's what the whole title is all about:
"Five years ago, something horrifying happened on Kamioki Island. Something so nightmarish that it stripped all memory from Mari Wakatake's mind even as it left every other human on the island dead in its wake! Find out what mysteries are left to be unfolded with Blue Drop!"

For a completely different pace, you should check out Gallants - the latest kung-fu, full-length feature film to come onto Crunchyroll!



Two martial artists run the village teahouse, once the kung-fu school of their teacher Master Law, who lies unconscious in a three decades-long coma. The middle-aged pair s skills have diminished in the 30 years they have waited for their master to return but then a real estate agent accidentally awakens the comatose Law, just in time for the master to train all three in preparation for a martial-arts tournament that will decide everyone s fate!

Both titles will be available to US and Canada audiences only.

Hope you all enjoy it!

So wait, do Premium members get all 13 episodes today? Or do we get the initial 4, then we have to wait? Confused.

it says as soon as they are available my guess is that they are still encoding the videos.

Currently only the first four are available, so whatever is available premium users will get it with free users only getting 2 eps per week. Hope this helps!

Didn't really enjoy Blue Drop, but it's nice that you're adding more titles. Any word on when Dog Days Season 1 will be available? Been waiting for that one for almost 2 months now...

I already own "Blue Drop" on DVD (the original release) so I'm passing. (The ending was disappointing to me.) I have no interest in the other. Still, it's nice to see more Sentai shows being added. Keep up the good work, Crunchy!

If you have a deal with sentai, I would love to see Clannad and After Story added to the collection.

Blue Drop is a really good show! A really wonderful love story and the ending is tremendously powerful, though it does leave too much hanging to really qualify as great. I have heard that the manga Blue Drop was based on are from after the anime, or that the anime is a prequel to the manga or something, and that they are considerably more graphic and explicit in the yuri-ness.

It's a shame they don't have a high def stream for it. It is a beautiful series that deserves better resolution!

I love anime being added for CR. It's just kind of a shame that this is available in legal streaming elsewhere, but who am I to complain? I love seeing this site expand.

Same. New anime is new anime and that's the one thing I want most here on CR is a bigger catalog of older series.
