Hey everyone,

Spring is here, and with it, new anime titles to announce on Crunchyroll!

First off we're going to start with some titles that we announced exclusively at Kawaii-kon a little while ago, with Sparrow's Hotel and Oreimo 2!

Sparrow's Hotel will be available to worldwide audiences starting on Tuesday April 9 at 5:30 am PDT.



For the newcomer - Sparrow's Hotel, here's a little breakdown of what you can expect to see with this particular series:

"Because Sparrow's Hotel is located downtown, dangerous things like over-drinking and fights are commonplace, which causes trouble for manager Shiokawa Tamaki. Then Satou Sayuri approaches the front desk for a job interview, listing her special skills as "large breasts" and "assassination." She is hired on a trial basis as a special task force and guard, but... Massive strength! Massive breasts?! This gag anime illustrates the daily lives of the new front desk staff, Satou Sayuri; the level-headed manager who happens to look like a middle schooler, Shiokawa Tamaki; and the guests who visit the Sparrow's Hotel just to see them."

For Oreimo 2, we are stoked to see the return of Kyousuke and Kirino, along with all the crazy otaku antics that ensue with them!

Starting on Saturday April 6 at 10:30 am PDT, Oreimo 2 will be available in the following territories: USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Central and South America.



But for those new to the game, here's a little break down:
Kyousuke Kousaka is a high schooler who has been leading a quiet, humdrum life. However, his life is turned upside-down when his little sister, Kirino, comes to him for ‘life counseling.’ It turns out that Kirino, a well-rounded winner in life, has many otaku-ish hobbies and loves anime and games. Kyousuke sincerely takes on Kirino's request to tackle life counseling.

And so, as more and more people get involved--including Kuroneko and Saori Vageena, whom Kirino met via social networks; Kirino's friends, Ayase and Kanako, and Kyousuke's childhood friend, Manami--changes to their icy cold brother-sister relationship begin to appear. After overcoming the crisis of Kirino suddenly leaving to study abroad, what kind of craziness will her ‘life counseling’ cause next!

Then, yesterday, Aniplex of America announce the acquisition of Valvrave the Liberator which is to be streamed right here on Crunchyroll!

Arguably, one of the more highly anticipated series this season, Valvrave is set to broadcast Friday starting on April 12 at 11 a.m. Pacific time for its premium members in the following territories: US, Canada, United Kingdom, and Ireland only. Free users will get it one week after initial Crunchyroll broadcast.



To whet your appetite for more, here's a little idea of what you can expect to see:
“A new age where 70% of the human population lives in space thanks to the development of “Dyson Sphere”, a city in space. The world is divided into two main powers: The Dorssia Military Pact Federation, a power which grew out of a military alliance, and the Atlantic Rim United States (ARUS), which grew in power as it expanded its trade agreements.

The minor nation of JIOR has declared neutrality between these two forces and maintains its peace through economic prosperity. Within the JIOR’s Sphere, Haruto Tokishima lived an ordinary life as a high school student in the division known as “Module 77”—until the Dorssian military begins their sudden invasion! But the whole world will be shaken when Haruto meets the mysterious humanoid weapon, Valvrave!

Next up we have Mushibugyo, a samurai action series that takes place in an alternate-history of Edo-era Japan, where the Mushibugyo, a group of warriors, fight to protect the city's denizens from giant bugs!

Mushibugyo launches on Crunchyroll on Monday, April 8, 2013 at 3:00am PDT.


Mushibugyo will be available to Crunchyroll audiences worldwide except for: Japan, Brunei, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, and The Philippines.

Based off of the original manga Joujuu Senjin!! Mushibugyo by Hiroshi Fukuda, Mushibugyo is set in an alternate history version of Edo-era Tokyo, where a special unit called the “Mushibugyo” protects the city’s denizens from the giant insects that run rampant throughout the city. Jinbe Tsukishima left his home to join the Mushibugyo, and now fights alongside his fellow comrades to exterminate the giant bugs while striving to be a warrior who never loses. He and the rest of the Mushibugyo risk their lives to protect not only the peace in Edo, but the smiles of the people as well!

Mushibugyo is being produced by Seven Arcs, whose other works include Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha, the Dog Days series, and Asura Cryin’. The cast includes voice actor/singer KENN as Jinbe Tsukishima, whose debut role was Judai Yuki in Yu-Gi-Oh! GX and also plays Hibito Nanba in Space Brothers. Voice actress Satomi Akesaka, also known as krkr in gdgd Fairies, stars as Oharu, and Rumi Ookubo, whose other roles include Chinatsu Yoshikawa from YuruYuri, is Hibachi.

For those seeking a light-heated comedy, AIURA will also be coming to Crunchyroll's spring lineup.

AIURA will be premiering on Crunchyroll on Tuesday, April 9, 2013, at 10:05am PDT.


AIURA will be available to Crunchyroll’s audience worldwide excluding Japan for Premium members, and worldwide excluding the following territories for free members: East Asia, Southeast Asia, Indian Subcontinent, Iran & Afghanistan, and Southern Pacific.

AIURA is based off of a four-panel manga of the same name, created by Chama. It’s a comedy that follows the antics of a trio of unmotivated high school girls, Kanaka Amaya, Saki Iwasawa, and Ayuko Uehara, as they do, well, not much! AIURA is being produced by the animation studio LINDENFILMS, who also animated another comedic short, Senyu.

The cast features several newcomers to the voice-acting industry, including Yui Nakajima as Kanaka, and Nao Tamura, whose other role previously was Hinata Kinoshita in The iDOLM@STER Million Live mobile game, as Ayuko. Yuko Iida rounds out the trio as Saki, with previous minor roles in hits such as Haganai NEXT, Say “I love you”, and Kotoura-San.

Stay tuned in for more new titles coming to you soon~!

Looking forward to Valvrave the most since its mecha and from Sunrise. Hope Aniplex USA can snag the home video rights as well. If not I just hope the Japanese releases come with subs. *crosses fingers*

Within the limits of my own schedule, I hope to watch at least the first episode of whatever CR brings up, and Oreimo2 at least I expect to watch to completion. For as-yet-unannounced streams, my only must-get wish for CR is Nyaruko-san W.

I made the same mistake ~ I started reading the Sparrows Hotel description and then saw the countries listed at the end, and didn't realize that the paragraph listed Sparrows Hotel as worldwide and had switched to giving the Oreimo 2 region list in the middle of the paragraph.

I'm still hoping that the titles from licensors who are part of Daisuki are not all as narrow as Valvrave turned out to be. The other region lists look better, even for Africa and the Middle East, which seem to be hard to get licenses for..
