Simulcast GET: Crunchyroll nabs Hamatora and more


Three more shows are getting picked up

As we get ready to welcome 2014, Crunchyroll is picking up three more shows before the year comes to a close! Best of all, one of their new anime titles happens to be a series that I'm going to cover soon. Anyway, Crunchyroll's newest titles are Hamatora, Seitokai Yakuindomo Season 2, and Wooser's Hand-to-Mouth Life: Awakening Arc.

While this might be CR's last simulcast announcement for the year, I have a feeling that they're going to unleash a another wave in 2014. Since I'll be covering Hamatora, I'm hoping that Seiji Kishi doesn't ruin the show's interesting premise about superpowered detectives. Then again, I heard that Kishi did a good job with Angel Beats!, so there's a chance that his forte is with original titles.

While I haven't seen Seitokai's first season, the concept of an girl's school becoming a school that houses both sexes sounds like it could be fun. Seeing how Crunchyroll is only picking up the show's second season, I hope that they add Seitokai's previous episodes down the road. On the side note, CR does have Wooser's first season, so viewers who are interested in checking out the yellow bunny-like creature's comedic antics can catch up before the Winter Season begins.

Hamatora and Seitokai Season 2 will premiere on January 7th, with Wooser Season 2 beating both shows to the punch on January 4th. The dates mention in the previous sentence are for Premium members, so free users will have to wait a week later. 

Now that we're done with CR's last set of announcements for 2013, it's time for us to prepare for the new year of anime!
