Crunchyroll has picked up a few anime series to not just stream, but simulcast during the fall season. 3 new series broadcasting on TV Tokyo will stream on Crunchyroll at the same time: Squid Girl, Letter Bee, and The World Only Knows. This is in addition to the 5 continuing series from TV Tokyo.
Kadokawa will also simulcast 3 new series: Fortune Arterial: Red Promise, Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt, and Sora no Otoshimono: Forte.
The downside is that you will need to pay for a premium membership to watch these simulcasts. Non-members can still watch these series, but will have to wait a week after they air in Japan. Membership or not, it’s still a good method for streaming these new series legally.
