posted on by Egan Loo
The media-distribution website Crunchyroll has announced at its New York Anime Festival/New York Comic Con panel on Saturday that it licensed the anime titles Tantei Opera Milky Holmes, Lucky Star, Cosplay Complex, Demonbane, and The Magician's Academy (Macademi Wasshoi!). Lucky Star and Cosplay Complex were previously released on DVD in North America by Bandai Entertainment and ADV Films, respectively. Crunchyroll will be announcing other titles when the formal announcement for Lucky Star and Cosplay Complex is released.
Milky Holmes' streaming will launch this Sunday at 1:00 p.m. PDT while the other titles will stream at an unspecified later date. Bushiroad's Milky Holmes television anime series and detective romance adventure game follow four budding female private eyes. The anime premiered in Japan on Thursday, and the game will ship for the Sony PSP portable console in Japan on December 16.
Crunchyroll will also bring the first Mobile Suit Gundam series (with the English dub), Mobile Suit Z Gundam, and Mobile Suit Gundam 00 back onto the site after the panel on Saturday. Bandai Entertainment distributes these and other Gundam titles on DVD in North America.
