Hey everyone,

lugiamania here with another catalog announcement today! As promised, we will finally be launching the first season of the fabulous Uta no Prince Sama series! We will be releasing 3-4 episodes each week, at the same time that Uta no Prince Sama 2 launches, which is Wednesdays at 11:05am Pacific Time.

Uta no Prince Sama 1 will have the same territories as Uta no Prince Sama 2: USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Netherlands, and Scandinavia.


For those of you waiting for the first season to start before watching season 2, wait no more!

When Haruka gets the chance to take the entrance exam for Saotome Academy for the Performing Arts, it seems as though she's one step closer to her dream of composing songs for her favorite singer, Hayato. However, this is no gleeful high school musical experience, and Haruka's hiding a dreadful secret that may silence her musical ambitions forever. And even if she does get into Saotome, the competition will be more brutal than going on Japan's Top Idol! That's because, as a writer, Haruka could be paired with any one of six radically different male singers. Will it be upbeat Otoya, serious Masato, flirtatious Ren, split-personality Natsuki, optimistic Syo, or the unapproachable Tokiya, who's rumored to be Hayato's brother? And just to make things more complicated and awkward, writers and singers are expressly NOT allowed to become romantically involved! Can one girl and six handsome young men learn to make beautiful music together in a strictly Platonic sense? They can if the oddball staff of Saotome, most of whom are current and former idols themselves, have anything to say about it in Uta no Prince Sama!


Whats up guys,

Ready for more catalog anime?!?
We're going live with House of Five Leaves today at 5pm PDT for US and Canadian audiences only.
Free users will get 3 episodes per week, while premium users will get all episodes immediately upon launch!



Those unfamiliar with this series, here's a little breakdown of what you can expect to see:

Ronin Akitsu Masanosuke is a skilled swordsman, but his personality often causes him to be let go from his job. With desperation closing in, Akitsu accepts an offer to work as a bodyguard for Yaichi, the charismatic leader of a mysterious gang: the Five Leaves. Though the meek swordsman finds the gang's actions disturbing, Akitsu grows more fascinated by the outlaws every day...

Hope you guys enjoy this and stay tuned for more catalog titles!

5/3 - Gurren Lagann
5/4 - Ghost Slayers Ayashi
5/5 - R.O.D.
5/6 - House of Five Leaves
5/7 - Uta no Prince Sama 1

NIS America as suggested by the name doesn't get the UK rights for series thus Crunchyroll had no way of getting them. (Since the UK licensor that had it no longer exists, CR can't get UK rights for it from a local licensor).

Of the those 4, only 1 is currently licensed in the UK(R.O.D the TV) so go ask MVM to provide that to Crunchyroll in the UK.

Looks like you guys are slowly but surely getting titles that are available also on Hulu. Always nice to have another streaming outlet.

Plus this works for people who can't access Hulu, but can get Crunchyroll.
Does anyone have that predicament?

If you are expecting a action packed anime you may be disappointed. This is more of a drama.
