This literally might be my personal nominee for best pickup up of the season. I've always wanted more of these types of anime to picked up by US distributors.

And even if ad-streaming is limited to their most common license countries, its the first "worldwide outside Japan for subscribers" announcement by Crunchyroll in a while, at least for a regular anime.

I'm looking forward to this one. I'm excited to see Crunchyroll streaming the stuff that is a bit outside the usual mainstream stuff (cute girl redux/shonen redux).

Its nice and patriotic, weirdly it would be seen as racist here to celebrate your unique culture like that because it would exclude immigrants lol.

Not in the part of England I come from. And I don't see why immigrants would be excluded, just as I won't feel excluded when I watch 'Folktales'. If that really was the case (that you'd be seen as racist) we wouldn't have shows about Robin Hood on the telly or ever talk about King Arthur.

And David Cameron wouldn't be saying that he wants to promote Britain's culture at the Olympics.
