Crunchyroll Scores Hayate!!, more K-Drama

OH GOD YES THIS IS AWESOME.

More good news for those of us planning on following new spring shows (and entering the spring contest!): Crunchyroll is going to be streaming Hayate no Gotoku!! for us, nearly simultaneously with the Japanese release (one hour after the Japanese air time, specifically). Nom nom nom! I'm excited because I loved the first season of Hayate. And you should check out VIZ's releases of the manga, too, which is also awesome and different enough from the anime to be well worth reading through both.

But that's not all of Crunchyroll's news: they've added another half dozen Korean dramas to their library: Spotlight, New Heart, Mr. Big's Lawyer, La Dolce Vita, Jumong, and I Really Really Like You part 2. So there's plenty to keep you busy over at Crunchyroll (even if FUNimation is starting to grow their own library).

Besides, you know what business competition means: more for fans!

If Crunchyroll gets the first season of Hayate online (fo' legalz), then I'm sold (especially since Bandai announced its acquisition of the license, what...last fall?...and seems to be taking its sweet time with it).

*prepares to buy Hayate Vol. 7*

Dig Deeper into Crunchyroll

Originally created as something of a specialty YouTube for anime and other Japanese media and consisting primarily of illicit fansubs, in 2008 CrunchyRoll established deals to legally distribute some popular anime series simultaneous to their Japanese airing.
