The site will stream the series, starting with episode 14, on January 12 at 9:00 p.m. EST. The first 13 episode will be available on the site at a later date.


So.. its just going to start in the middle of the series? Totally neglecting everything that had happened until "a later date"?

Never really heard of Crunchy picking up a series halfway through its airing before.

What's even more hilarious is that episode 14 will be the last episode of Mio's route. So absolutely nothing is going to make any sense to those who check it out now that it's on CR.

Anyways, 9 PM? That's about an hour before the fansubbers usually get it out.

Really?? I don't even see why they are wasting their time on this, better late than never I suppose.

Well I'll be damned Crunchyroll, this was a nice grab.

Guess I need to get caught up.

I'm guessing they figure that anyone interested in it at this point already watches the fansubs (since it seemed like there was no chance of a legal stream), so it was higher priority to get the subs of newest episodes out first and worry about the earlier episodes later.

Until the get the rest of the episodes up, you'd still need the fansubs anyway.

Fansubs usually have better translations than CR anyway. But yeah, really odd that they picked it up in hte middle

It was just a matter of time.

Well, looks like another queue update is in order. With the titles added over the past couple of weeks, this thing's getting huge.

Can't wait to see Kudry. Very Happy

It seems nobody gives a penny for LB! before it airs. Thanks of J.C staff "uncertain" reputation, I guess.

Well...

I suppose "about damn time" is appropriate for this occasion, no?

Sweet! Can't wait to actually have a legitimate way of watching this. I can wait for the first 13 episodes. Plenty of other anime to watch before then.

This is almost guaranteed to be a Sentai sub-license because the publisher listed is Showgate. Perhaps it just took Sentai a while to finalize this license, for whatever reason.

This made me chuckle, in a good way.

I did try watching Lil B's but I just couldn't get into it too much. Maybe I'll try it later when CR gets all the episodes.
