Web Ghost PiPoPa and Skip Beat! simulcasts on Crunchyroll

11 01 2009

The newest two additions to Crunchyroll’s library of Anime Membership-only simulcasts (the episodes will be available to non-paying users as well, but not as quick “simulcasts”) are Web Ghost PiPoPa, or Net Ghost PiPoPa, about Yuuta Akigawa and Pit, Pot, and Pat, and Skip Beat! about a teenage girl named Kyoko Mogami, and then I don’t know any more… Anyway, join several other members at Crunchyroll and check these shows out, as well as the tons of other programs on the program lineup.

Six more shows on Crunchyroll

9 01 2009

Okay then, now starts the before promised parade of Japan-related news and first up – embrace yourself – we have Crunchyroll! That’s right, yet another news post about Crunchyroll…

"Six more shows, you say?"

"Six more shows, you say?"

Starting yesterday, Crunchyroll have been streaming “simulcasts” of several anime shows to those who have purchased the Anime Membership, but that’s not all; several other shows are going to be streamed as simulcasts as the year progresses – and the list of shows that are coming to Crunchyroll is growing still! Just this week, six shows have sneaked their way into the Crunchyroll program lineup, although they are not to be simulcast since they have all already finished. The newly acquired titles are Gonzo’s Chrno Crusade, Kaleido Star, Last Exile and Peacemaker Kurogane and Toei Animation’s Galaxy Express 999 and Space Pirate Captain Harlock. I would be very excited since I have long wanted to watch Chrno Crusade and Last Exile, but unfortunately, neither of these six shows will be available to Europe. Well, since not many (or any?) shows that are currently in CR’s program lineup is available to those in Japan either, it wouldn’t really make a difference if I was a few years older and had moved to Japan already – because that’s definitely where I’m going in a few years. Anyway, enjoy living in the right regions (if you do), you lucky bastard and see you later!

I wonder where their going without me.

Two more shows on Crunchyroll

2 01 2009

In just six days the new Anime Membership accounts will activate on Crunchyroll, letting me and everyone else who have paid for their special account upgrade watch lots of anime as soon as it airs in Japan with subtitles in HD quality – online and legal – and now they are adding two more shows to

Neo Angelique Abyss

their bank! Only one short hour after airing in Japan, starting this month, the anime adaption of Yuki Midorikawa’s shoujo manga Natsume Yuujin-Chou ANN and it’s sequel Zoku Natsume Yuujin-Chou will be available for Crunchyroll Anime Membership subscribers as well as the Neo Angelique Abyss ANN anime based on the for-girls romantic adventure game Neo Angelique by KOEI. Even though both these series are originally aimed towards girls and women, I will definitely check them out since I have enjoyed shoujo such as Full Moon wo Sagashite and Vampire Knight before.

Eyeshield 21 on Crunchyroll

30 12 2008

Richirou Inagaki’s and Yusuke Marate’s football manga Eyeshield 21‘s ANN anime adaption will, from January 2 and forward, be available for legal view at Crunchyroll. If Crunchyroll continues to add great anime shows at this speed for at least one month longer, I will absolutely get the special “Anime Membership” that costs a few bucks a month and lets you watch anime legally as they are on TV in Japan with subs, for those who wants or needs it, in really high quality – even though it’s online streaming!

The Sword of Uruk on Crunchyroll

27 12 2008

Crunchyroll has announced that they will stream the new The Tower of Druaga: the Sword of Uruk anime, starting 8th January together with its TV premiere for non-paying members (the anime will be available earlier than that for paying members) and since I’ve always been interested in the Druaga series I am really getting interested in Crunchyroll. Seeing as maybe all anime that airs on Japanese TV also will be available on Crunchyroll in the future it may be a great idea to just become a member, pay the extra fee and watch online – perfect timing now that my computer have become slow and can’t handle having µTorrent on in the background. Oh, and it’s not illegal! Now you don’t have to feel bad for watching your favorite anime the wrong way.

I am so going to watch the Druaga shows on Crunchyroll!

The Tower of Druaga: the Sword of Uruk will, just like its prequel The Tower of Druaga: the Aegis of Uruk, be animated by Gonzo. Did you know that the The Tower of Druaga anime shows are based on maze game by Namco from 1984 called The Tower of Druaga. Not too much of a shocker there on the name. The game has several sequels, but I don’t know if all are maze style. Frankly that doesn’t appeal to me too much, but if the animes are good enough, maybe I’ll check out the game as well. Or maybe not, I’m not sure.
