Hey everyone,

It's lugiamania continuing on with today's new title announcements! We will be launching YUYUSHIKI tomorrow, April 9, 2013, at 1:00pm Pacific Time, available for audiences in the following territories: USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Netherlands, and Scandanavia.


YUYUSHIKI is based off of a four-panel gag by Komata Mikami. It follows the lives of three high school girls in the data-processing club: Yuzuko Nonohara, played by Rumi Okubo, who also starred in YuruYuri as Chinatsu Yoshikawa, Yui Ichii, voiced by Minami Tsuda who was Yui Funami in YuruYuri, and Yukari, whose voice actress Risa Taneda was Kaoru Asoi from Oreshura.

“Yuzuko, Yui, and Yukari, three girls who just started high school in spring, are always together. After school, the three of them attend their own "Data Processing Club" with two computers and a whiteboard between them, searching for random words on Google and then discussing the results. Their day to day life is mostly uneventful, mainly only consisting of girls flirting, but for some reason it's difficult to tear one's eyes away from this new generation of high school girls' communication. Their cute, laid-back high school lives are defined by hanging out, club activities, and occasional hints of yuri. Au uneventful, good life - that is their "yuyushiki" (rule)”



Whats up guys,

Happy Monday to you from the Westcoast!
And with that, let's kick things off proper with the addition of: Arata the Legend here on Crunchyroll!

Arata the Legend is set to broadcast every Monday starting on April 8, at 11 am Pacific time for its premium members in the US and Canada only; free users will get it one week later. (sorry guys~)



Arata's dual protagonists will be portrayed by the two of the hottest names in the anime industry: Yoshitsugu Matsuoka and Nobuhiko Okamoto. Mr Matsuoka is known for his roles as Array from Lagrange, Godo from Campione!, and recent fan-favorite Kirito from Sword Art Online. Mr. Okamoto, arguably one of the hardest working figures in the voice acting business, is known for garnering some of the biggest leading roles in major hit series like Beelzebub, Bakuman, Sekai-Ichi Hatsukoi, Tiger & Bunny, and Blue Exorcist.

“The stage is the world of Amawakuni, where mankind coexists with the many gods. There, a boy called Arata is wrapped up in a coup d'état led by the Twelve Shinsho, wielders of swords called Hayagami. When he is accused of murdering a princess, Arata escapes to a forest, where he finds himself transported to the modern world.

Meanwhile Hinohara Arata, a high schooler in the present, is trying to deal with his new school life when his best friend betrays him. In his despair, he wanders off and finds himself in Amawakuni. When the two Aratas from two different lifetimes switch places, Hinohara takes on the life of Arata and becomes the next wielder of a Hayagami called Tsukuyo. Hinohara is shouldered with a new fate in this new world, and there his battles and adventures begin...”

Me neither, is quite surprising actually . When I realized that TV Tokyo was involved with the production of this anime, I was pretty sure that would be available in my country.

Another one to watch in the old way u_u

Sucks for the rather large international audience Crunchyroll has, but there are always at least a handful of countries that are only available in the USA and Europe. CR is based in California (and I guess Canada just benefits from the close economic and cultural ties it has with the USA in addition to being it's northern neighbor).

I am very surprised that this a premium subscriber only series however. I've been a regular on CR since around 2009 and the the only premium exclusive series they had was Fairy Tale.

Does anyone in the forums know why this is the case?

Free members get it a week later (was that a type fix? "sorry guys" was right after).

As far as the wider streaming season, it will be interesting to see what else happens with this one, since it could have been picked up by somebody for Home Video who preferred to have TV Tokyo give the materials over to Crunchyroll.
