Dear Brother is an exclusive to RetroCrush (in terms of legal sources), and I'd highly recommend it.

Damn, I wish we had something like that in the UK

I really wish RetroCrush had apps for game consoles. There's so much good stuff on there, but I do most of my streaming through my PS4.

I hope they have both the sub and dub for Medabots. Some of their releases they only have the sub (I think it's mostly movies and OVAs however). I just remember the referee in the dub being the best part of the show. I guess I'll go cry again for UNICO too while I"m at it.

Medabots could be the dub-only for now and RetroCrush is just waiting on Discotek to go on ahead and do Medarot if the dub masters for Season 3 aren't found soon enough.

I hope they find those along with the Mon Colle Knights dub masters.

Yup, I was one of those that supported the DVD release in the US and this was their last campaign. Really good series and reminded me of a 1980s Japanese version of 'Mean Girls'.

I loved Medabots as a kid and used to watch it whenever it was on Fox Kids. I'm excited it's streaming again though I'm surprised it's going to RetroCrush and not Crunchyroll like Mon Colle Knights. I wish someone would stream the sub for Monster Rancher as only the dub is streaming even though the sub is available on DVD.

Mean Girls? But Onii-sama yo is a pretty old-fashioned Japanese melodrama.

It’s August 22nd and Medabots is still unavailable on RetroCrush. It’s not showing up in my search and it’s not showing up in the alphabetical list. Does anybody have information about this? I haven’t been able to find anything online.

I’m disappointed because I’ve been so excited for Medabots to arrive ever since it was announced. I hope that it’s just an error on my end and I can fix it.

RetroCrush has been a bit overambitious with a number of their announced release dates, unfortunately. They launched just before the pandemic started, so they haven't gotten all the kinks worked out of their systems and some things are just a lot harder to do over the internet. If you're really curious, they have an official Discord where you can ask questions as long as you're polite.
