Hey guys! SailorBee here with the latest Crunchyroll news ~ ! Let's talk about what is this week on Crunchyroll.



This morning, the Crunchyroll News App became available for Android and iOS users. The app, developed by the computer whizzes here at Crunchyroll, allows you (the “user”) to get your anime, game, geek, and general Japanese pop culture craziness fix on the go via your smartphone or tablet. How many of you already have the App?





Another exciting addition to your balanced, Crunchy-breakfast was added this morning with the addition of the Monogatari series on Crunchyroll ~ ! Finally, watch Monogatari in HD 1080p on all your favorite and convenient Crunchyroll platforms. Personally, I sat in bed and watched episode 1 on my iPhone5 this morning. For a spoiler FREE discussion about this weeks episode, head on over to our Monogatari forum!




This weekend, catch Crunchyroll at Otakon 2013 ~ ! We'll be having our livestream, so please stop by and say hi! If you can't make it out to Baltimore, check out www.crunchyroll.com/live all weekend as celebrate Otakon's 20th year! For those of you going to the con, don't miss the Crunchyroll industry panel on Saturday, August 10, at 10:45am in Panel Room 1 for the latest news, shows, and a chance to win awesome prizes! Catch Crunchyroll Ambassadors Fire Lily Cosplay, MeltingMirror Cosplay and DandelionsWish at the Crunchyroll Booth all weekend!






Now, we're going to take the time to let you guys know what we're watching.
Don't miss these three must-watch episodes this week on Crunchyroll ~ !





☆ First up, is this weeks episode of The Eccentric Family ~ ! If you're looking to get lost in a well realized world, then Eccentric Family is the show you want to be watching this season. With a cast of amazing characters, gorgeous artwork, and a story by Tomihiko Morimi (Tatami Galaxy), there's plenty here to entertain across the board. Everything about this show feels good & it definitely keeps you wanting more.

This week, watch Episode 5, The Friday Fellows: Yasaburo had been hiding from Benten in Osaka, but thanks to Kinkaku and Ginkaku she catches him during a visit to Kyoto and makes him perform tanuki tricks for the Friday Fellows. It is revealed that Yasaburo's mother was saved by a man who gave her onigiri and also that one of the Friday Fellows, Hotei, has loved tanuki ever since he saved one and fed it onigiri...

BTW This is my favorite show of the season currently ~ !!




☆ Next, we have the latest from Attack on Titan, Episode 17: Female Titan. After being forced to make a difficult decision, Armin, Jean, Sasha and the others venture into the outside lands on the 57th Expedition Beyond the Walls. What they find is a mysterious female titan unlike any titan they have encountered before. This episode is gorgeous, but make sure you pay close attention to what is going on and what is being said -- the secret of the Female Titan may be right in front of us!




☆ Finally, the third must-watch episode this week is none other than the first episode of Monogatari! The Monogatari series' have made their way into anime legend, and this one might just be what we've been waiting for, or is it? We see an interesting side of Senjougahara we haven't seen up until now. The first day of the second trimester, Tsubasa Hanekawa chats with the ghost girl Mayoi Hachikuji en route to school. Right afterwards, she witnesses a giant “tiger” apparition. Later that day, her house completely burns down from a fire.

Anyone watching these three series? How do you feel about this weeks episodes ?

False advertising, this post has nothing about contests, at least site-related contests. Otakon contest, yeah.

So how come we haven't heard anything about the CR mascot drawing contest that you guys had a couple weeks ago, yet still haven't announced a winner for? I only care because a friend of mine entered and his mascot/slogan stuff was super freaking pro and awesome and you guys should totally use it.

The mascot contest was over 6 months ago ~ Eunice won.

If you mean, the T Shirt Design contest, we have been working on the designs. They must be altered for print.

The winner will be notified once we have a working design. :3

Soon !
