Crunchyroll line-up expands again

Dan has been writing for UK Anime Network since 2013, and has been the site's Anime Editor since August 2017.


Crunchyroll have expanded their line-up yet again. Seemingly not content with imbibing most of the Winter 2018 season's offerings, like No-Face in the bathhouse, they have also acquired a number of Funimation catalogue titles.

First up the Winter 2018 simulcasts:

gdgd men's party

Streaming from January 15th at 14:00 (2:00pm)

SynopsisThe story of gdgd Men's Party follows Light and Yomi, a pair of friends who waste all their free time playing their favorite video games. One evening Light and Yomi are sucked through a portal into a fantasy RPG-style world and tasked with rescuing the princess, Melody, from the clutches of the evil Maoh. Light is enthusiastic for the quest, but Yomi feels that having a heroic destiny is a total bother...

Today's Menu For Emiya Family

Streaming from January 25th

SynopsisThe Emiya family enjoys delicious, beautiful cuisine, no matter what the season.

And the Funimation catalogue titles:

Yu Yu Hakusho

SynopsisFrom cutting classes to brawling in the streets, Yusuke Urameshi is not your typical role model. In fact, this kid’s nothing more than a fourteen-year-old delinquent with a talent for trouble. But in a single selfless act Yusuke dies while saving another. For such noble sacrifice he is given a second chance at life, but it’s to be a life far different than the one left behind. Now a Spirit Detective, the young man must track down demons and humans alike who desire to rule over the three realms of reality.

Haganai and Haganai NEXT

SynopsisYozora and Kodoka are social catastrophes at their school. In order to make friends with other misfits, they start the Neighbors Club. In no time, a third member joins the club: Sena, a popular girl who annoys Yozora to no end. If the girls can get past their rivalry, they might learn an important lesson: Sometimes the best friends are the friends you never even wanted.

Chaos;HEAd

SynopsisTakumi is an anime-obsessed recluse with a fetish for two-dimensional girls. His dirty little cyber secrets land him in real-life trouble after a chat room encounter with a mystery man known as the General. In the blink of an eye, Takumi goes from caffeine-addicted gamer to schizophrenic murder suspect. Between the police and a gang of girls with giant swords, someone is watching his every move.

Good Luck Girl

SynopsisIchiko gets lucky a lot—like a force field of happy accidents repel her from misfortune. There’s a reason life always goes her way: she’s bubbling over with happiness energy she unwittingly absorbs from everyone around her. It’s up to the poverty god Momiji to end Ichiko’s positivity consumption and restore the world’s balance—but Ichiko isn’t about to give up her good fortune without a fight!
