One Piece fans, we've got some exciting news for you all!

The newest One Piece special, Heart of Gold is NOW available on Crunchyroll!


While Exploring the New World, Luffy and the members of the Straw Hats meets a mysterious girl named Olga. She is pretty on the outside but twisted and savage inside and she told them she is chased by the Navy and a powerful treasure hunter named Mad Treasure. The reason she is targeted is because she was from Alchemi, an island of steel which suddenly disappeared two centuries ago. Rumor has it that the metal called the Pure Gold that was created on the island is worth a fortune – that you can even buy the whole world with it. Thus, people have been seeking it from long ago. Olga managed to escape from Alchemi by accident but was caught by the Navy, and the Navy Headquarters and Mad Treasure who is working on orders from Guild Tesoro, the lord of the underground community, came to notice that there was a remaining survivor from Alchemi. Being pushed around by the cranky Olga, Luffy decides to hunt for the treasure that everybody wants. And the mysterious girl Olga is looking to make a lot of money using Luffy and the others. The members of the Straw Hats are excited about hunting the never-seen-before treasure. Will they be able to get the legendary treasure, Pure Gold, while having the formidable treasure hunter as their opponent?

We've got a new catalog title today as Sea Prince and the Fire Child, both subbed and English-dubbed versions are now available on Crunchyroll for members in the US and Canada!


Long ago, spirits of fire and water lived as one. But jealous Algaroch, Lord of the Winds, drove a rift between King Oceanus and his sister Hyperia, Queen of Fire. Since then fire fairies and water sprites have been at war and forbidden from consorting, but when Prince Sirius, the king's chosen successor, meets Hyperia's beautiful daughter Malta, they fall madly in love. A wise, old turtle explains their one chance is to reach the hill of Elysium during the next solar eclipse, where a magic flower blossoms that can carry them to a distant star where fire and water live as one.

Before there was Kuroko's Basketball, there were the boys from Dear Boys, another classic basketball anime!

Unfortunately, as the license for Dear Boys expires on July 31, 2016, so you all have until 11:59pm on that day to catch all 26 episodes!


Aikawa Kazuhiko, an easy-going and smiling transfer student, tries to rebuild an ailing Mizuho High School basketball club back to its lost fame.

An intense drama of friendship, rivalry, antagonism and passion. All for the love of the game. Based on the best-selling comic book series that sold well over 30,000,000 copies in Japan alone.

Check out episode 1 right now!

We also have a brief update to manga availability.

For most manga on Crunchyroll, the first and most recent chapters are available to free members with our ad-supported model. Due to changes in licensing, you may notice that some titles in our manga library are now only available to premium users. Starting this month, these titles (including Attack on Titan, Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches, The Seven Deadly Sins, and more) will be exclusively available for premium users. Thank you for understanding!

Thanks for the warning. I know for various reasons you can't always give notice, but it's great when you do.

Moved to the top of the queue. I guess I know how I'll be spending my commute time this month!

They know exactly how long they have shows for. It's not like they get a random call one day and demand for a show to be instantly removed. They just don't announce it because they lose a LOT of shows. I would respect this company more if they were honest with us and stop stealth removing shows. Even if for some reason Crunchyroll suddenly gets a call and they demand that a show be removed NOW it should be accompanied by an announcement. Sure, I will be angry, but I will be less angry than if I want to watch a show and find out Crunchyroll went behind our backs and tried to remove it without people knowing.

That's what it usually means I mean putting money on something that gets no profitable views is a waste so its better to let the license die.

With me working I don't have much time to watch any shows on the side aside from the airing ones so looks like I'll just have to miss out on viewing it.

I know Crunchyroll would rather not have these licensing restrictions and they are essentially archaic in todays society. I hope in the near future much is done to remove these petty restrictions and hope Crunchyroll keeps up the fight to get as many anime/drama/manga available as possible.

I'm pretty sure "Dusk Maiden of Amnesia" is still available. Haven't checked the other shows though.

Likely to be something like that.

This was produced in 2003, and based on original rights in a manga. The rights to the original IP from the manga might be expiring, without enough money being generated anymore to pay for the lawyers to work on a renewal.

I take it from the date of the first review that it was put up on Crunchyroll sometime in June of 2009, which is about seven years ago. (That would have been about the time that TV Tokyo bought a minority stake in Crunchyroll.) That could well have been a seven year contract term, rather than an automatic roll-over. If so, there is no reason to think Crunchyroll could afford enough in a Minimum Guarantee to allow TV Tokyo to break even after paying a lawyer to vet the contract.

The other main reason a series is taken down is because it has an automatic roll-over unless the the licensor to Crunchyroll says no, or else so long as the licensor to Crunchyroll says OK, and then the licensor to Crunchyroll says "no", or fails to say "OK". Since this was published to Crunchyroll by TV Tokyo, that is not likely to be the case here.

Dusk maiden's gone, just checked. Unless i'm mistaken, everyone of those shows is licensed by Sentai though, so I'm guessing something's up on their end. Doesn't make a lot of sense for them to have those series not streaming, 'cause there's nowhere else to see them. no viewers=no advertising=no sales

It's not. The pages for these shows are still up, but with no videos. They were removed ~2 weeks ago, but they said that they are working on getting them back. Hopefully they do.
