Excellent pick up by the guys at CR! Very Happy This is one of the most anticipated shows of the season. I wonder if they'll nab anything else? Fairy Tail perhaps? Wink

Sweet! I've been wanting to see this. ^^ I love the manga so far, so the anime should be every bit as good.

Hopefully this will mean eventually someone may eventually pick up the rights to dub it as well, at least if it does so well with streaming.

I have to admit that this wasn't one of the new titles that I've been salivating over, but I'll give it a look-see. Who knows, it may be more up my alley than I am expecting. I'm happy any time CR picks something up even if it is not necessarily my cup of tea, because I want legitimate streaming sites to become bigger and more popular.

I thought the first episode was pretty boring and had a fairly cliche attempt at making the audience sad. Not usually good to judge off 1 ep tho..I'll give it 2

Crunchyroll already announced they'd have 13 new simulcasts this Fall. With Tegami Bachi & Naked Wolves (not really sure why that one counts for Fall), they still have 11 more to go. At least one title will be announced every weekday.

The series hasn't even started yet, unless you're talking about the first manga chapter. Or if you're talking about the Jump Super Tour special from last year, don't judge the series on that because it wasn't the first episode.

Huh? So you are saying that it doesn't look "EPIC?" I am shocked.

Not expecting much out of this series. The manga (based upon the first volume) is rather generic. The art is definitely pretty though, and that is the only reason why I'm watching the anime.

Not real interested in the series but am glad fans got another simulcast. Heck, even that is the case for other anime lately. It may not be a series I'm interested but I am glad those that are have even more simulcast to watch.

It doesn't count, so 12 more.

They have a good chance of getting it.

Yeah, the Jump special was really boring, but the story isn't that bad, and it was only a filler, so I will give it a try. I'm looking forward to the other CR simulcasts too.

Oh, and looks like they will announce one anime almost every day:

So far, I'm enjoying Tegami Bachi in Shonen Jump (American Edition). I will check this out at some point. (Though, in all honesty, I know nothing about Crunchyroll...)

Nice to see CR has Letter Bee. Now if VIZ has the DVD rights, that would be great.

I had heard CR was going to announce 13 new series but didn't have any proof. That's awesome! They say they will be simulcasting over 50 per cent of all anime shows available in Japan - can't wait for that figure to hit 100 per cent.
