The Crunchyroll video-sharing website has announced at its Otakon panel on Saturday that it will add new titles from the Gonzo anime studio's GDH corporate parent — including Kaleido Star and Peacemaker Kurogane (pictured at right) — 12 titles from ADV Films, and several titles from Media Blasters this month. The 12 ADV Films titles are as follows:

The Media Blasters titles include the following:

The GDH titles will be available through Crunchyroll's streaming and download-to-own options. The ADV Films titles, Girl's High, and Miki will be available through Crunchyroll's streaming, download-to-own, and subscription options. The other Media Blasters titles be available through the subscription and download-to-own options only. The ADV Films titles will be presented over the next 12 months, starting later this month.

Crunchyroll has also dated its international online premiere of T.O. Entertainment's computer-animated Egg Man film for October. The video-sharing website has already run The Tower of Druaga: The Aegis of Uruk-, BLASSREITER, and Strike Witches from GDH. Crunchyroll had also streamed Welcome to the NHK from May to June when ADV Films had licensed the rights.
