Summer 2013 Simulcast Schedule - - AV MOD MATERIAL

What new shows are streaming this season... and when?

As fans of a foreign entertainment medium we are sometimes left with the short end of the stick. It's really hard to enjoy the series when one has to resort to illegal means to watch them. Don't fret, that's what simulcasts are for!

Crunchyroll, Anime Network and FUNimation work to make sure this barrier doesn't led to any illegal streaming. With little to almost no time between the Japanese premiere of the show and the websites' streaming we can enjoy anime the way it is meant to be enjoyed. Below you will find the Fall season's simulcasted anime. Let us know what you'll be watching.

Special thanks to Bigheart711, Acura Max, and takashichea (who did most of the work).

Fantastasia Dolls (or however its spelled) is better than I thought it would be, but it does seem like it's geared towards young girls.

Acura_Max moderator on July 31, 2013 at 5:52 p.m.

This looks fantastic. How did you get the tiny Hulu and Crunchyroll symbols?

Marshal Victoryon July 31, 2013 at 11:05 p.m.

Good work! Gatchaman Crowds has been a real surprise for me in a good way. Sadly Sunday Without God was a surprise in a bad way.

Blood Lad is fairly soild tho.This season just does not have much for me :/ So freed up time goes to Boarderlands 2 i guess.

sickVisionz moderator on Aug. 1, 2013 at 12:03 a.m.

Good job on the list. Monogatari is currently simulcasting on Daisuki.

I wasn't aware of much this season. The only only new show I'm following is Watamote, and even that is just I watch it when I'm bored or while eating and want some stimulation other than just food. Still following Saint Seiya, Hunter x Hunter, Bleach, and Titan though. I'll probably watch Monogatari once it hits CR but I might not. I get the feeling that Nisemonogatari is the only one I'll like in that franchise. I went back to check Bakemono and I ended up stalling on it after about 4 episodes.

Servant x, Yamishibai, Sunday, Gatchaman, Genchiken, and Day Break are in my queue though.

He could have taken the big ones and just shrunk them.

takashichea moderator on Aug. 1, 2013 at 3:51 a.m.

Thanks everyone! Couldn't have done it without my teammates. Hopefully, I didn't miss anything. FUNimation and HULU took a while.

I feel silly making that banner. Feel free to hit me guys. Why did I put Kirino in there.

@sickVisionz: @Acura_Max:

It took a while, but it was thanks to Daniel who provided me some inspiration. He use US and Japanese flags on the character tables for the wiki pages. I use Paint.Net and copy Daniel Newton's format. Crop some images and then shrink them to 20:11 which is the size of the font we used!

@Marshal Victory:

I'm watching Blood Lad, too. It reminded me of Fairy with its comedic, fan service but less "Nakama" and more pseudo Moe stuff.

Jinbeifan1on Aug. 1, 2013 at 7:23 a.m.

ok usually I'm not into two bit love stories that are cliche as always but... I have to say the world only god knows is friggin Awesome! Keima's a douch but he's a great character XD

Marshal Victoryon Aug. 2, 2013 at 3:05 a.m.

@takashichea: Ya i dig the show. What moe influance theri is goes away fairly fast .Also you should try its a open source GNU Image Manipulation Program.Its almost photoshop... almost. But hard to learn.But its free!

Dig now Dog & Scissor ,Gatchaman Crowds an a few hold overs from last season an Blood Lad to.But drop or just lost intrest atm in almsot all the others :/

Fall looks good tho alota potential there.

takashichea moderator on Aug. 2, 2013 at 6:33 p.m.

@Marshal Victory:

Every season we get a lot of slice of life and moe shows. I tried different shows just to change things up a bit. Feel free to recommend me some shows. I wrote the Spring 2013 Experiences: Trying out New Anime and Manga. I just finished Haruhi Suzumiya and Gurren Lagann back in June. I'll be writing my Summer Experiences on those two shows and more if people recommend me more stuff.

I enjoyed Gatchaman. I only finished the first episode. I'm a bit behind. Oh, I forgot to start up discussion threads for the new series. Crap, sorry, my mind wanders off.

I just don't like shows with really cute fan service and big doe eyed girls. BigHeart711 would just tease me about those shows and magical girls. Then, he takes over the trailers for these shows.

I have GIMP installed. I just preferred Paint.Net because I'm so used to it. I couldn't figure out how to use GIMP to make transparent images or profile portraits. I'll try GIMP again. The only program I don't have is Photoshop. Man, that's expensive! I just make due with what I have right now. I just don't have the creativity skills to make super banners like Geo, Foxx, and BigHeart711 do.

Thans for the reminder.

actually taught me how to use GIMP. Somehow, I forgot the steps. I did screen capture the steps, but I can't make a lick of sense how to do it again.

Marshal Victoryon Aug. 2, 2013 at 9:22 p.m.

@takashichea: i bought to help learn GIMP better . Probbly not best choiice i think ill get end of the month.seems to be better for learning how it all works.

I used to use photoshop 6 an 7 an loved them .But they dont work with newer OS .An as most folk i cant aford full Photoshop an i dont want to be a priate.Also this vid might help ya some.
