Happy Thursday Everyone!

We're bringing more catalog titles to you today from our friends at Funimation!

1) Eureka Seven is launching at 4pm PT for members in the United States and Canada.



Renton is a teenager trapped working as a mechanic in a backwater town. He dreams of joining up with a daredevil group of pilots known as Gekkostate and following in his father’s heroic footsteps. When a mysterious beauty named Eureka shows up asking for a tune up, Renton soon finds himself drawn into a high-flying mecha dogfight that makes him a target of the military.


2) Casshern Sins is launching at 5pm PT for members in the United States and Canada.



Casshern, a cybernetic assassin with no memory, awakens in a wasteland where a plague known as the Ruin reduces everything in its path to rubble. Robots and humans alike seek vengeance against Casshern for the role he played in murdering the last hope for this world. But now, lost in a future he does not recognize, a machine built to kill will fight to save the dying.


3) Soul Eater is launching at 3pm PT for members in the United States and Canada.



Maka’s a Meister and Soul is her Weapon, and they’re a freakin’ lethal team in battle against the monsters and ghouls that feed on innocent souls. That’s when Soul transforms—literally—into a razor-sharp scythe and Maka wields her partner and unleashes her inner-slayer. Fighting alongside their Meister/Weapon classmates, Maka and Soul are the world’s last line of defense against evil.


4) Attack on Titan: Junior High is launching at 6pm PT for members in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa.



Your favorite characters from Attack on Titan are back in…junior high school? Adapted from the hit spinoff manga series—Attack on Titan: Junior High (written by Saki Nakagawa), this parody reimagines Eren, Mikasa, Armin, and other characters from the original manga as students and teachers at Titan Junior High School.


5) Doamayger-D is launching at 5:30pm PT for members in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Iceland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark.




This retro-style throwback is a romping adventure with a sweet setting! In a traditional Japanese sweets shop in Kyoto works Daijiro Kyogoku, the latest young successor in a long line of sweet shop owners. One day, Daijiro finds a giant robot in the shop’s basement called Doamayger-D. Now, villanous robots are on the loose, and the hero we need is Doamayger-D…a candy-making mech?

Hi everyone,

We are excited to bring more catalog titles to you today on Crunchyroll. From Funimation, we have Red Data Girl launching at 5pm PT, available for members in the United States and Canada.



Shy 15-year-old Izumiko has a hard time making personal connections. Oddly, she can’t use computers or cell phones, either—they mysteriously crash when she touches them. When her childhood bully Miyuki shows up at the shrine where she was raised, their lives become involuntarily entwined. Izumiko learns she is the last vessel of a goddess—and Miyuki must serve as her dutiful guardian.

* * * * *


We also have Sky Wizards Academy launching at 6pm PT, available for members in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, South Africa, Iceland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and the Netherlands.



Forced to retreat to floating cities due to an invasion of armored insects, humanity must depend on Sky Wizards to battle the menace.

* * * * *


Up next is GANTZ, available at 7pm PT for members in the United States and Canada.



If you are chosen by the bizarre black sphere known as the Gantz, you are already dead—yet you might be able to reclaim your mortality. First, the Gantz demands that you undertake brutal missions of madness, killing aliens hidden among the population. It is your only chance and you have no choice. You must play this disturbing game. And if you die again—and you likely will—it’s permanent.

* * * * *


We also added Aquarion Logos, launching today at 8pm PT for members in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, South Africa, Iceland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and the Netherlands.



Celebrating its 10th anniversary Aquarion returns with a new series, new characters and a brand new adventure! Inspired by the classic mecha series of the ‘70s and ‘80s, Aquarion Logos is ready to serve up more high-flying robotic battles animated by Satelight, the same team that brought you Log Horizon, Fairy Tail and the first two installments in the Aquarion franchise.

* * * * *


And finally we have added Devil May Cry, available in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland and South Africa.



Cursed to live as both monster and man, Dante must spend his life fighting the demonic forces of darkness. Brandishing his sword, Rebellion, and his always-loaded guns, Ebony and Ivory, Dante is more than happy to send the demons back to hell—especially when there’s money to be made. The wildly popular video game is now a series, and this time, there’s no sympathy for the devil.

* * * * *


We have also added The Eccentric Family to the catalog, available now to members in the United States and Canada.

Funimation had Gantz? CR are doing better job of getting titles to us than Funimaton UK are. Nice job!

Rest of the world: We still waiting to Crunchyroll to bring us at least one or two animes to see with the season premieres...
Eccentric Family was one of them, but don't know why now it's only for US & Canada

Glad to see that The Excentric Family is b... wait a second! Come on, you've to be kidding me. Why is this blocked outside the US and Canada?! Originally, this could be watched in more regions than that. The currently airing second season is available in more countries than that, too. So, what the h*** happened? I just hope that reducing region availability doesn't become in a new silly trend.

NISA has The Eccentric Family in NA, and it's probably just a pickup from them.

Where are the links for the shows? Normally in posts like this, they link the URL for the show page with the title, to make it easier to get to it. Now I have to search for these ones instead this time. Nice to see Crunchyroll picking up so many shows from Funimation though, including a lot of ones that I want to watch and couldn't watch anywhere else legally without picking up another paying membership.

Got all excited when I saw season 1 of Eccentric Family was back.....only to have my hopes dashed once again. Australia generally hasn't gotten a thing from the previous 'catalog additions', so I'm not sure why I was surprised, but still, rather disappointing considering we did actually have access to that one once.

As noted in the message immediately below yours, NIS America holds the license to the first series, which means it would have to be acquired from them.

EDIT: The first and second series show different publishers (though YTV is listed for the first series, not NISA), and even without that, there is a difference in territories between the two (though the first was not as restricted as it is now).

It should be noted that as both series are listed on the same page, and CR only lists one publisher (even in cases where we've known different parts to be from different publishers), that information is not a valid reference in these cases.

Nice to see some shows I plan to watch on here now. I think Eccentric Family S1 was on Crunchyroll before and for my region, I remember watching halfway through it. Sad that it's not licensed for my region this time, as I won't watch season 2 if I haven't finished season 1.

Gantz is nice to see, never really finished it. Sky Wizards I think I watched almost to the end, but a rewatch wouldn't be bad.

They're on separate pages though
/the-eccentric-family
/the-eccentric-family-2

S1 is from Yomiuri Telecasting Corporation (YTV) and S2 is PA Works.
