Anyway, this is good news, as with the ongoing trend of CR's site news. Continue to take my money!


CR shares a lot of shows with Daisuki, Funimation and Hulu. For the last few seasons Funi, Hulu, Netflix etc. have been getting more exclusives each season so an exclusive like this is a pretty big deal.

Honestly I wish they could "crush the peons" but it's not like there are really any peons. Calling Funi/Netflix/Hulu peons is just kind of ...

Hope this exclusive is a sign that CR can at least compete well enough to come out on top more often than not.

Holy shit its not just USA and Canada for once


Isn't this the case for nearly all of Crunchy's simulcasts? There's nothing different about this show.

The recent classics and catalog titles have been US & Canada only, as most of them were sublicensed from a US company, but that's not really the same thing.

The difference is Crunchyroll is paying for the show while it is being made. So they get the rights in perpetuity and don't have to negotiate for it. Other shows crunchyroll gets the rights for a certain amount of time with an option for the company to renew or take the show down.

My faith in CR has been momentarily restored! They DO realise there is more to the world than just the continent of North America!!




Face palm, they have always known other countries exist, please stop acting like you all don't get stuff that that that is exclusive to other countries besides the US.

When you subscribe to CR because you want to be able to legally see as much as possible on a site with a decent community, and you go to the 'new titles' pages with excited anticipation only to find that, yet again, you cant see it here because you dont live in the US or Canada, then you may have a reason to question my attitude!!

Oh, Trigger, how i've missed you! Now if you could just animate Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer or Spirit Circle, then that would be just wonderful!

HaruHaru was my favorite amongst the girls--so much character development with such limited screen time. . .
