Hey guys,

It's that time again, where we start revealing just what's coming your way this upcoming season! To kick things off, Crunchyroll will be streaming comedic short, Boku-no-imoutowa"Osaka-okan", which translates to "My Little Sister is an Osaka Mamma" in English. So just when is it starting? TONIGHT! That's right, the first episode of Boku-no-imoutowa-"Osaka-okan" will be available to Premium users tonight, December 21, 2012, at 8:00pm PST. Free users will be able to catch episode 1 next week at the same time. (*Please note that episode 2 will be available 2 weeks after initial broadcast, due to Japanese broadcast times)

Boku-no-imoutowa"Osaka-okan" will be available to Crunchyroll's audience in the following territories: North America and Central America, Caribbean, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Iceland, Netherlands, South America, and Latin America.


Boku-no-imoutowa“Osaka-okan”, tells the story of Kyosuke, a boy who has been reunited with his sister after 10 years of living apart. However, his little sister Namika is nothing like he remembers.

Boku-no-imoutowa“Osaka-okan” is another collaboration between director and designer Sota Sugahara and writer Kotaro Ishidate, who previously worked together on the first season of gdgd Fairies. Ryoko Shirashi, best known for her roles as Hayate in the Hayate the Combat Butler series and Kaede Nagase in Negima!, will star as the main character. His younger sister will be voiced by Kana Asumi, whose credits include Yukikaze Panettone from Dog Days, Kiyal in Gurren Lagann, and Ran from the Shugo Chara series.

The series is based off of a series of popular books called “Osaka Rules” by Chukei Shuppan, which offers a humorous look at how to deal with people from Osaka, who are stereotypically portrayed as being louder and more forward than their Tokyo counterparts.

In other anime-related news, Crunchyroll is also excited to announce that we will be showing the continuing episodes of Saki Episode of Side A! Up first is episode 13, which will be airing for Premium members December 24, 2012, at 7:30am PST. As usual, free members will be able to view it one week later, at the same time.


As for another continuing title, GIRLS und PANZER has unfortunately been delayed in Japan, and so Crunchyroll will resume streaming the series once it starts back up in Japan. However, there's still episode 10.5 to look forward to next week and tide you over until the girls of Ooarai Academy return!

Finally, with the holidays coming up, both here and in Japan, there will be some schedule changes to continuing simulcasts. Below are the list of titles whose times have been changed in accordance with their Japanese schedules:

Boku-no-imoutowa"Osaka-okan": resumes on January 4, 2013
Fairy Tail: resumes on January 4, 2013
Folktales from Japan: resumes on January 5, 2013
Gintama: resumes on January 10, 2013
Ixion Saga DT: resumes on January 6, 2013
Naruto Shippuden: resumes on January 10, 2013
Polar Bear's Cafe: resumes on January 10, 2013
NARUTO Spin-Off: Rock Lee & His Ninja Pals: resumes on January 8, 2013

As always, keep your eyes glued to Crunchyroll in the following weeks as we start rolling out the new season!

Thanks for the update. I thought we wouldn't be seeing the thirteen episode. I was hoping that Sakura-sō no Pet na Kanojo will be going into the Winter Simulcast


Gintama: resumes on January 10, 2013

Looking forward to it, hopefully it will be the new arc. If not, then seeing some classics will be awesome but it would be a weird move airing an episode that talks about Sakata Gintoki's past?, show the new teaser for the new arc and go back to classics, but if they trying to finish the movie still then so be it.

As always, keep your eyes glued to Crunchyroll in the following weeks as we start rolling out the new season!

Speaking of the new lineup, can you see if you can get the streaming rights to Oreimo 2 for the Spring 2013 Simulcast providing that there are any. Please forward this to the team if they haven't already jumped on it

Getting non-standard extra episode broadcasts? CR, that's absolutely fantastic. ♥ I feared they would be unavailable, especially with some or all of them airing on AT-X, a pay channel in Japan.

And same question as the guy above me, Kokoroko too please?

In an event, great work.

Actually I knew that they had 24 episode listed somewhere. I was just skeptical about it being cut off after twelve episodes and then continue sometime after. None the less, thank you

Definitely looking forward to winter season!

Also happy that 5 shows I love are continuing, but does anyone know what's going on with Space Brothers? Didn't think it was ending soon, but its not on the list unless I missed it.
