Crunchyroll has a new competitor in the delicious-sounding simulcasting race: Crackle. The field has widened beyond FUNimation, Crunchyroll, ANN and The Anime Network -- now Sony is getting in on the competition, turning their site Crackle.com into the place to go for some pretty interesting content.
Like, oh, say, Macross.
Y'know, that show. It's been streaming on Hulu, but I'm betting a lot of you forgot about it. Crackle is already streaming 13 episodes of Blood+ and all 94 episodes of Ruroni Kenshin, and has a slate of titles they'll be rolling out weekly until the end of the year, when they'll be showing off the US debut of Animax's original production, LaMB.
Buckle down and get yourself ready to watch some shows like Fist of the North Star, Captain Harlock and Pretty Cure, all for free on Crackle.com. I'm excited to see what they'll be pulling out next. Stay tuned to us here on Japanator, we'll keep you updated with the pulse of Crackle.
Oh, and ANN: you need to update the name of your streaming service. Something with more snap or pop to it.
