Hello Everyone!

We're adding a new catalog title (from 1984!) into the Crunchyroll family. Giant Gorg will be available tonight 7pm PST for users in U.S. and Canada.



Yuu Tagami was never close with his father. Yet after the old man's accidental death, Yuu finds himself on a plane to New York City, following instructions written in a letter from his late father. New York is as strange as it gets for the boy from Japan, but stranger still is Dr. Wave, the man he's supposed to meet. Dr. Wave shares an obsession with the deceased concerning the mysterious New Austral Island. Ten years ago, the island sprang into being, and then just as suddenly vanished off the maps. But it's still there, and Dr. Wave knows there are secrets on that island that demand investigation. Unfortunately, he isn't the only one! The corporation known as GAIL wants those secrets for themselves, and they're willing to kill to get their way! What secrets lie on New Austral Island?

Saw like, two non-sequential episodes of this at Anime Weekend Atlanta some three or four years ago and then never saw a trace of it. So glad I can enjoy this tonight!

I had no idea this existed. I do appreciate more retro mecha.

Hmmmmm..... I have never heard of this show. Still, it's nice to see more retro anime on Crunchyroll! Maybe I shall check this series out eventually.

Not at all, obviously, but whomever licensed the series to Crunchyroll doesn't have a forum to go to complain that they did not acquire the rights to more territories when they got the rights to the series.

A nice addition. It is always good to see Crunchyroll's catalog expand. I just love having the option to watch some shows, even if I don't actually watch them.

That and despite a 100 requests the admins never state US&Can only in the title when they often update entire threads dedicated to catalogue pickups aimed only at those 2 regions and every update upsets more and more people. Subs of other countries don't get discounts despite vastly smaller catalogues of available anime on CR.

Our subscription price is in no way related to the amount of shows available, and whatever you pay does not go towards shows that you cannot watch.

Then where does it go? More money to the fewer shows we do have available? though that would mean we are paying more for exact same shows...

Either way point remains, they never state US and CAN only in the titles yet the VAST MAJORITY of catalogues they pick up are only for those 2 countries. Save a click for many and you save a disgruntled repeated sense of dissapointment.
