I was annoyed with how Crunchyroll did not have a calendar file for http://www.crunchyroll.com/launchcalendar, so I built a bot which scrapes it 100 seconds after each release to keep itself up to date.

You can use these files to add to Google Calendar, or Apple's Calendar. I do not know about anything for windows, except for maybe thunderbird.

https://birdim.com/crunchyroll.ics - Release for everyone.
https://birdim.com/crunchyroll-simulcasts.ics - Release for premium members.

And likewise, for every calendar event since the beginning of this calendar.
https://birdim.com/crunchyroll-all.ics
https://birdim.com/crunchyroll-simulcasts-all.ics

Please do not subscribe to the all calendars. They are huge and if I get too many requests for it, I'll have to move them to another server.

Hope some of you enjoy this.

Thank you, I've decided to throw the simulcasts into my Google Calendar.
This beats my old way of keeping track of them, which was... well... primitive at best. I used to take a screencap of the release calendar every few months and keep it on my desktop.

This is such a brilliant idea! Thanks for taking the time to create a calendar for all the Crunchy releases. I can't decide whether or not this should stay in General Discussion or put it into the Anime forum, but we'll see how much traction it gets in GD for a bit first. If the response is poor, maybe Anime would treat it kinder. Either way, props man!

(I've edited the description a bit for more clarification about what the thread is about!)

Do you want me to make a separate post there?

No, one thread about it is enough.

Found out that there were some shows which I and other people would love to know about that were hidden due to them being available to everyone right from the start. I modified my code to include those specific episodes so that we can keep up with them as well rather than having to subscribe to the available to everyone and available to premium members (simulcasts) calendars receiving duplicate events for episodes you've already seen.

I noticed that SAO EE episode 1 was available to everyone and wondered why my calendar didn't have it as I check it every once and awhile. Now the calendar has it:D

My calendar (simulcasts) for this week is almost empty, with the exception of chunibyo, samurai flamenco and silver spoon on thursday.
Did enough people subscribe to your calendar files to break your bandwidth or is there an issue on my end?

Great idea! I've been manually adding series to my Google calendar for the past year or so. This just saved me hours! Thanks!

If anyone else uses 30boxes, I do something similar for that calendar system. I do like calendars, it puts things in perspective a bit better.
