Crunchyroll to Stream Shangri-La, New Corda

Shangri-La
Shangri-La
Crunchyroll continues to flood my inbox with press releases-- three when I woke up this morning. And who knows, maybe more to come throughout the day? But here's the news you need to know:


  1. Crunchyroll will be simultaneously releasing Gonzo's Shangri-La along with its Japanese airing this spring. Score!

  2. They will also be simultaneously streaming La Corda d'Oro ~second passo~, and they'll release the first season starting March 20, prior to the show's release.

  3. And then some interesting stuff going down with Naruto Shippuuden: no new episodes will stream from March 19 to March 26, when they'll air two new episodes. During that Naruto-less week they'll host a bunch of themed events online, including a celebration of Sakura Haruno's birthday, and other community events.
Don't worry, the reason they're having to save an episode of Shippuuden for the next week is related to the programming schedule of the network, not due to any problems.

I don't want to be Captain Bringdown, but that photo appears to be from Noein.  Which does feature a dimension Shangri-La, but it is a bit different than Gonzo's "urban jungle" set to debut in April.  Anway, keep up the good work.

This Shangri-la is range murata moeee. Not that Noein isn't moe in its own way (Haruka/Ai/Miho~)

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.
