Crunchyroll to Play the White Album

Crunchyroll's really going for the moe this season.

No, no, not the beatles-- White Album, the anime. Today's Crunchyroll announcement is White Album. Since this is a fall simulcast announcement, that means that the new season, which is the show's second half, will simulcast on Crunchyroll-- but I just received confirmation that they'll be rolling out the first half as well, for those of you who haven't gotten a shot at watching it yet. New episodes will be released on Wednesdays at 12:30pm for anime members, and they will be available to everyone one week later. Countries who'll have access are:  the United States, Canada, the United
Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, the United Arab Emirates, and Brazil.

Now, those of you who read my fall 2009 new anime preview are already familiar with White Album, but for those who aren't, it's the tale of a love triangle between a guy and his girlfriend Yuki (voiced by Aya Hirano) who's in training to become an idol, and Rina, an already-popular idol voiced by Nana Mizuki.

Here's the press release with a bit more info.

All these new shows coming to Crunchyroll makes me want to actually sign up for it.

I have a CrunchyRoll subscription and although I do enjoy the site, I rarely ever use it. This is the show to help me justify my subscription cost though, I'm definitely looking forward to checking out the Simulcast.

@JJOR64: 50+% of all anime (not including kids' shows) airing this season are being simulcast on Crunchyroll-- according, mind, to Crunchyroll. I posted about 34 new titles myself, of which probably ~3 would be considered kids shows, and CR has 13 (one more is still waiting to be announced), which isn't quite half of 31. They do, however, have a bunch of shows that were already ongoing-- Naruto Shippuden, Gintama, etc. --so I assume the math works out somehow.
 
I've been pretty happy with my membership so far.

@gia: Now if I only had some spare money.  :(
