Hey guys~~~ Another announcement for today! ETOTAMA joins our spring 2015 Line up!

ETOTAMA is set to broadcast every Thursday starting on April 9th at 8:30 am Pacific Time for premium members, with free members able to watch one week later. More information can be found on www.crunchyroll.com/etotama.

ETOTAMA will be available to audiences worldwide, excluding Asia.



Since ancient times, Japan has upheld the tradition of the 12 Zodiac signs. Eto-musumes (Zodiac girls), who have the appearance and behavior of the animals of the Zodiac, are pure hearted messengers who act as a bridge between humans and the gods. Every 60 years, the “ETM 12” tournament takes place in Tokyo’s Akihabara district, where aspiring girls from all over Japan gather for the chance to become the next zodiac sign. One of those girls is Nya-tan, a cat girl who was tricked by a sneaky rodent and was not able to become a Zodiac girl. There is only one condition to become an Eto-musume: you must defeat the other 12 signs. But with strength bestowed to them from the heavens above, no one has been able to defeat them for 2000 years.

The story begins when Nya-tan meets Takeru Amano!

The studio that produced Moyashimon, Shirogumi Inc., will be handling anime production for the ETOTAMA anime. Akiba resident Amato Takeru will be played by Hiro Shimono (Keima from The World Only God Knows) while his cat-like friend Nya-tan will be played by Rie Murakawa (Yui from Trinity Seven). Rie will be performing the opening theme song, and performing with the rest of the cast for the ending theme song.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Next on our list is PUNCH LINE!

The anime will air Thursdays starting on April 9 at 11:30am Pacific Time for premium members. Free members will be able to watch episodes one week after they debut.

PUNCH LINE will be available in the following territories: United States, Canada, Central and South America (including the Caribbean), South Africa, Australia and New Zealand, Europe and MENA



If he sees underwear, humanity will be destroyed!? An original anime series from the noitaminA block, PUNCH LINE centers on Yuta Iridatsu, a high school student, with a peculiar habit. When he sees a girl's panties, he gets so excited he faints! After a certain incident with a ghost cat, his soul gets separated from his body. Using his special powers, Yuta watches the daily lives of the inhabitants of an apartment and sometimes plays tricks on them. Eventually, Yuta decides to unlock the secrets to why Earth will be destroyed and tries to save it!

Yuta Iridatsu will be played by Marina Inoue who has voiced Armin from Attack on Titan. She is joined by Rie Kugimiya, (Kagura from Gintama, Taiga from Toradora!) Sora Amamiya (Akame from Akame ga KILL!), Haruka Tomatsu (Morgiana from Magi - The Kingdom of Magic) and Yuri Yoshida (Mashiro Mitsumine from Engaged to the Unidentified) The opening theme song will be performed by Shoko Nakagawa whose works have been featured in Gurren Lagann, Eyeshield 21 and Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, in conjunction with Dempagumi Inc..

CR remains inefficient to negotiate with TBS to expand the territories outside the USA and Canada

Come on.

TBS lags behind almost every other publisher in regard to simulcasts. I can remember a time when TBS meant "no simulcast anywhere".

I think the only reason CR is able to get them for the US and Canada is Sentai seems to invariably license TBS titles for home video.

While we are only getting the follow ups of the previous season (which will certainly will be available on CR anyway) FUNImation is getting all the good new shows.
