An unknown party has posted several episodes from the Naruto Shippūden, Fairy Tail, Heroman, and Occult Academy anime series onto the YouTube website on Wednesday. All of the episodes have been posted before they will air in Japan on TV Tokyo or simulcast on the Crunchyroll website. The episodes include:
