Crunchyroll to simulcast FREE!, Dog & Scissors, more



Alright, folks. Summer is almost here! Not climatically, I mean. In that sense summer's been here for at least a week. I'm talking, naturally, about the anime programming season, and it shall be upon us like a surprise sunburn! And the first sign of the coming deluge is the ever-useful simulcast announcement, and Crunchyroll has opted to start cranking open the floodgates.

The 'roll has announced that it'll be simulcasting three of the season's new shows, namely Kyoto Animation's highly-anticipated swimming anime FREE!, canine masochism anime Dog & Scissors (aka Inu to Hasami wa Tsukaiyo), and totally-not-about-butlers-or-maids anime Servant x Service.  And that's just the beginning, seeing as there are several more days of announcements to be made.

On the sequel front, they'll be providing streams for the next seasons of hero-versus-demon-lord anime Senyu, tennis absurdity anime Teekyu, and age-gap anime Recorder and Randsell,

Which particular shows are you hoping to see simulcasted? I'm certainly interested in seeing FREE!, and I wouldn't be surprised if Crunchyroll or some other major provider managed to name the next Monogatari series and maybe the next season of Symphogear.
