Surprise! Crunchyroll made a few changes to their lineup page-- only one show will be announced today, rather than three, and they've already made today's announcement. It's Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou-- which you may recall is also being simulcast at The Anime Network this season.

It should be very interesting to compare and contrast the benefits of each setup. On the one hand, The Anime Network's simulcast should be available even to non-paying users, so even if you don't subscribe you won't have to wait a week. But I'll bet that Crunchyroll's stream for paid users will have a higher-quality stream (since they offer 720p). But will they use the same translations? 
 
  
Very interesting. Very interesting indeed...

Also the Anime Networks player is only available to North American users while Crunchyroll's player is available to those in some parts of Europe and Asia.

I agree, though the annoying part is just that I was actually looking forward to three releases, but sometime this morning they changed it to one and then made that single release something we already had.
