Hey guys,

lugiamania here, still recovering from the throes of Anime Central this past weekend! (To those of you that came by and said hi and saw the Wake Up, Girls!, it was great to see you!)

For those of you that were at our panel at ACen this past weekend you'll know that we added several new catalog titles to the site, so without further ado, here we go!

First off, we've got the J-Drama Rebound, available for Premium All-Access and Drama members NOW, and 4 episodes each Sunday at 10am Pacific Time for free members. Rebound is available for Crunchyroll members in the following territories: US, Canada, Central and South America including Caribbean, Europe (excluding Territories), South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand.


This is the story of a former fat woman's love and work, as she cycles between being thin and rebounding. A sweet, and slightly bitter story of how she overcomes the hurdles of life with her fatso power and struggles to find her best weight, and who she really is.

At age 20, she weighed 78 kilograms, but after being rejected by a guy she went on a massive diet and got down to 45 kilograms. Just when she was thinking that her life was about to turn around, she fell in love with a hot pastry chef, and rebounds back up to 78kg as she eats his cakes.

Then she's fired from the fashion job she loved! Will she choose love? Or her work? A realistic story of a girl in her 20s who wants to be happy.

Let's try to think of a way of living like ourselves without rebounding!

* * * * * *

Next up, we have a pair of live-action movies, Ichi 1: Origin and Ring of Curse, available to All-Access and Drama members NOW, and free members on Saturday, May 24 at 8pm Pacific Time. Ichi 1: Origin and Ring of Curse are both available for Crunchyroll members in the US and Canada.


Before he was known as Ichi the Killer, he was just plain Ichi. But even that isn't the real name of the twisted young man who will one day become the underworld's most notorious murderer. At a normal suburban high school, Dai and Onizame are two toughs who fight it out for the title of the strongest in the school. Their classmate Ichi is beneath their notice, a weakling who is bullied and taunted by kids half his age. But when Ichi snaps and releases the psychopath within on a group of fellow students, Dai and Onizame can't turn away.



Yuka had the most horrifying experience of her life a year ago. Her high school classmate, Kurohane, is blessed with unparalleled literary talent, but she is bullied because of her eerie appearance. When Kurohane starts writing the script for a school play, inexplicable deaths start to occur at school. It turns out that the script contains a curse to kill the readers indiscriminately. Can Yuka and her classmates escape Kurohane’s impending curse?

* * * * * *

And finally, a movie that some of you might find familiar, is The Princess and the Pilot, the movie to the series The Pilot's Love Song! The Princess and the Pilot will be available to Premium members TOMORROW at 2pm Pacific Time with free members able to watch in 4 weeks, and will be available to Crunchyroll users in the US and Canada.


The war between the Levamme Empire and the Amatsukami Imperium has been raging for years. In the midst of this struggle, the prince of the Levamme Empire declares his love for Juana del Moral and vows to end the war in one year, as part of his marriage proposal. When the Amatsukami catch wind of this, they assault the del Moral residence, targeting Juana's life. As a last-ditch effort to bring the prince his bride, the San Maltilia Airforce employs a mercenary of mixed blood—a bestado—to fly Juana to the prince in secret. The pilot, Charles, accepts the mission...but traversing an ocean alone, and into enemy territory, proves a much more dangerous ordeal than anyone could have anticipated.



That's all for now, but as always, we've got some more stuff up our sleeves, so enjoy and stay tuned!

Shoot my time travel machine is still not complete yet so I can't fast forward to tomorrow. Guess I'll have to be patient and wait until tomorrow to see The Princess and the Pilot.

The Princess and the Pilot sounds like a good addition. Been wanting to see the basis for A Pilot's Love Song.

Definitely excited to see The Princess and the Pilot on the list! Been super interested in checking it out, and now I'll be able to catch that -and- the TV series in one go <3. Ring of Curse/Gomenasai looks pretty nifty as well. Thanks for all the hard work, Crunchy-tachi!

I just watched The Princess and the Pilot last Sunday and it was very good (rated it a 4/5). It satisfied me on an afternoon in which I had nothing to do and was craving a movie to watch. I definitely suggest it to anyone with some free time.

I am somewhat disappointed with these announcements; though more content is never a bad thing.

Hopefully it's just a matter of time when The Princess and the Pilot becomes available for those in Latin countries. Awesome pick-up though!
