UPDATE Hey guys, it's lugiamania here taking over keikawa's post real quick for an announcement!

If you have a younger audience at home, or just simply want to watch something silly and funny, then be sure to tune in to Bottom Biting Bug when it launches on Crunchyroll this Saturday, October 20, at 4:30pm PDT!

Bottom Biting Bug will be available to Crunchyroll’s audience in the following territories: North America, South America, United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Denmark, Finland, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, and Spain.



Bottom Biting Bug is created by the husband and wife team of UrumaDelvi, and was originally a popular children’s song. UrumaDelvi not only composed and sang the song, but animated the music video as well, called Oshiri Kajiri Mushi in Japanese. The song was so popular that it even broke into the top 10 on the Orion singles chart, with over 300,000 CDs sold and 1.5 million downloads.

The series features Bottom Biting Bug XVIII, voiced by singer and voice actress Tomoko Kaneda, who loves to sing and dance more than anything else in the world. When bitten by a Bottom Biting Bug, people become more cheerful and energetic, even those who were depressed or had little confidence. However, even the Bottom Biting Bug makes mistakes, and this story will feature many scenes from everyday life that will continue to evolve through the sort of humor that kids love.



What's up guys,

Midway through the week, and we're about midway through our catalog extravaganza!
Let's deliver more CATALOG titles for your viewing enjoyment with today's newest addition of: Kobato!

Like yesterday's title, this will only be available for US and Canadian audiences only. Sorry guys! Premium users will get all episodes as they become available, while free users will get 4 new episodes a week until the series completion.



Why should you watch Kobato? Here's a little sampling to show you why:

"To ease all the pain and suffering in this world is no simple task, but young Kobato earnestly believes that she has the talent and ability to do just that! However, the half- human creature known as Ioryogi doubts whether the strange girl with the mysterious past is truly ready to receive the mystical flask Kobato needs to achieve her goal, a special bottle gifted with the ability to capture the pain and sorrow of a broken heart once it's been healed! However, as there's really only one way to find out if Kobato truly deserves the right to use the flask, Ioryogi decides to send Kobato on her first assignment! Will Kobato pass the test? From the magical pages of the original manga by famed creators Clamp, the most heartwarming heroine ever is born in Kobato!"

But wait, we're not going to end things just like that.
Stay tuned throughout the week as we'll have more announcements for you!

Good grab Keith! I think I'm more amused that Syaoran is in the center of the promotional picture rather than Kobato haha.

Even though I don't know what it is, I'm super excited about the next one!

YES!!! I have been wanting to watch this series, but have been unable to till now. (No income = no TAN subscription, plus for some reason this computer can't play even TAN's free videos, unless they appear on here or Hulu)

weird how they're using Syaoran, Fai and Kurogane for the banner since they ONLY show up for 1 episode.

Nice addition, I have yet to see this one and I have wanted to check it out for quite some time.

Also now I'm all excited over tomorrow's announcement since they took the trouble to add that they are excited for that one over at CR >.>

According to NISA, Toradora and Kimi ni Todoke are going to be added to Crunchyroll. I'd assume those are the next two announcements.
