Company also adds more Miss Machiko episodes to catalog

Crunchyroll announced on Friday that it is now streaming Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie in the United States and Canada. The film is streaming in both an English-subtitled and an English-dubbed version.

Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie adapted CAPCOM's video game Super Street Fighter II in 1994. DIscotek Media released the film on DVD last December, and a Blu-ray Disc release is planned for October. Sony Wonder previously released the film with an English dub on VHS and DVD, and Manga Entertainment later released the film on DVD with an English dub and subtitles in 2006.

Crunchyroll also announced that it is streaming episodes 13-22 of the Miss Machiko (Maicching Machiko-sensei) anime series. Crunchyroll is streaming the series for users in the U.S., Canada, South Africa, and the U.K. Discotek Media had announced in May that it licensed the 95-episode series for streaming only. Crunchyroll began streaming the first 12 episodes in June.

Discotek describes the series:

The mischievous students of Arama Academy meet their match in a beautiful and clever new teacher, Miss Machiko! But they're determined to find a prank that will really embarrass her. No matter what they devise she still manages to laugh it off and help them with their school work and problems.

The series is based on Takeshi Ebihara's manga of the same name. The series ran on TV Tokyo from 1981 to 1983. The manga also inspired a series of eight live-action film adaptations from 2003 to 2009.
