Hey guys!

With the holidays coming soon, there's no better time for an anime marathon! Unfortunately, all remaining Bandai Channel titles will be expiring at the end of this year, so be sure not to miss your last chance to catch them on Crunchyroll!

All Bandai Channel titles will be removed from Crunchyroll on December 31, 2012, at 6:59:59AM PST. (This is midnight JST)

Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion

Last month's catalog spotlight, Code Geass is set in an alternate universe where the empire of Britannia has taken over literally half of the known world, the country of Japan is defeated and stripped of both its name and identity, and is now known as just "Area 11".



Kurokami the Animation

This is a tale of battle that begins with a chance meeting between a human boy named Keita and a young Tera Guardian girl named Kuro.



Mobile Suit Gundam 00

An organization named Celestial Being appears, dedicated to the elimination of war through armed force. They are in possession of "Gundam" mobile suits which they use to intervene in all acts of war.



Mobile Suit Gundam

The show that started it all, the original Gundam series! Months after the Zeon launched a war using mobile suits, the Federation develops their own mobile suits at a remote colony. The colony is attacked and fate chooses Amuro to pilot the white Gundam.



Mobile Suit Gundam Wing

Five young pilots, equipped with advanced mobile suits called "Gundams," are sent to Earth to wage guerrilla war against Oz and its Alliance puppets. The war to decide humanity's destiny begins...



Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam

This star of this month's catalog spotlight, Zeta Gundam is another stellar entry into the famous mecha series. When the AEUG launches an attack on the Titan headquarters, the political conflict escalates into a civil war. And a young civilian named Kamille Bidan becomes the Gundam pilot of this new era...

I guess I'll have to take the time to watch the rest of Kurokami (last episode I watched was episode 9).

Feel bad for the Gundam and Code Geass fans though. Hopefully Sentai will license rescue both of those in the future(although I can see Funimation getting Code Geass and licensing the OVAs)

The deadline being syncing with midnight in JST time and since Bandai Channel is a Japanese TV channel makes me think this is the expiration of the rights that Crunchyroll had. I wouldn't be surprised if we see license rescue announcements in a few months but it could be that with no North American licensor, it was just too expensive for Crunchyroll to renew as catalog titles.

First Eureka 7, now the rest of Bandi's titles. Its kinda sad, but on the bright side there is plenty of time to fit in Gundam Wing! I've been meaning to re-watch it (really watch it for the first time since I was a kid the first time I "watched it") and this news will finally give me the motivation to do so. And with college wrapping up today I could probably find room to squeeze in another series to boot.

Lucky Star was added by Kadokawa in a group of catalog titles so it's possible that could remain until whenever it expires under Crunchyroll's contract with Kadokawa over it.

Hayate no Gotoku season 1 is trickier, but it could have been made part of a package deal with the second season and since they are TV Tokyo shows, that could mean that it could stay. But I have accelerated by watching of the first season just in case(I finished episode 15 not long ago)

I thought I was going to be really disappointed at what I was losing here, but none of these are available in Australia anyway.

Still, I feel the pain of Gundam fans who actually were able to watch these.

I agree with Svalgas. Normally with gundam series that are complete I end up watching them in one of two ways.

Yeah, I was thinking that what they listed were not all of the Bandai titles. In addition to Lucky Star and Hayate S1, there's The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (also a Kadokawa anime, so I'm guessing it has the same treatment as Lucky Star), Gosick, My Ordinary Life, and Star Driver. I hope these aren't affected either, because I've only seen Lucky Star, TMOHS S1, and Gosick.
