Crunchyroll is disappointing so far this season.

Where is our 3rd season of Koihime Musou!?!?!

Meh. I would've watched Hakuouki, but not this. The sad thing is that Koihime Muso probably is one of the shows, so I guess we're ending up with two out of five that could be significant quality at best.

Edit: Or 3 out of six, since it seems there are now six shows instead of five on their lineup page again.

At least there are still 3 more announcements to go (supposedly).

http://www.crunchyroll.com/lineup

Not much that seems likely and hasn't aired the first episode is left, maybe they'll be backfilling. I think they did a couple like that last season but I can't for the life of me remember which ones.

"This Spring 2010, Crunchyroll will feature over 50% of Anime titles currently airing in Japan!"

Oh yeah.

Uragiri wa Boku no Namae o Shitteiru: for those fangirls who weren't pandered too enough with Hakuouki!

Seriously, though, other than the much-anticipated Stan Lee/Japan hybrid Heroman, crunchyroll hasn't been getting the cream of the crop so far. I look at the list of remaining titles, and while I'd love to imagine that they'll get one of the Noitamina shows this season, I doubt it. Sad

Crunchyroll has a huge female audience and this is their first true BL show, so this is probably a good thing for them. They already have a lot of those "yuri" titles that pander to guys, so it makes sense to pander a bit to the large female audience.

Oh darn, I forgot about those two GL shows that aired.

Well, I guess it's only fair.

Hey, I'm female! I mean, maybe this show will turn out to be really good, with great characters and story and a lot of drama. Or it'll turn out to be fan service for girls, who knows? I suppose it's "fair" because of all the ecchi stuff they've aired, but just because it's switching genders doesn't make the trend of fan-service-heavy shows any less depressing.

I'm so glad to see this! CR has tons of shounen anime but not that much shoujo, and no BL. Their first two shows of this spring, harem and superhero mecha, don't appeal to me in the least.

Eh? I complained with the panties as well.

I mean, if this show is as character centered and well done as Aoi Hana or even Sasameki Koto, I'll give it a shot. However, BL don't tend to be that... understated though, from my admittedly limited experience.

I agree. I've been waiting for all the announcements to finish. If CR is going to have nothing but fan-service shows I'm probably going to cancel the starred membership after Durarara! finishes its run. I don't see the point of paying for streaming shows I wouldn't buy on DVD.

I'm not sure CR can really be blamed for that this time around. I'm still holding out hope for a couple of yet to be aired shows, but it seems like slim pickings as far as new shows are concerned.

You know, I'm sure there are people like that and they're very silly, but I didn't say that at all. I just see this being a one-note wonder, most likely. Hakuouki at least has handsome men + some swordplay action, apparently.

That would be nice. Senko no Night Raid would floor me too. I'm also very curious about Rainbow.
