My current Crunchyroll playlist.

Terra formarsI watched the first episode of this potential gem partially conscious. I think I might have been bored or bloated from watching a lot of random Crunchyroll anime offerings at the time. I admit that I wasn't sure what to make of it. Fortunately it was the first episode, so I wasn't overwhelmed with the idea of obligating myself to watch more than one a day.It has an interesting premise. You have humans that have been mutated with other animal traits trained to fight off mutated cockroaches, that were sent to Mars 500 years ago. The show is always full of swings. Both...

This would have to be one of the coolest things we've done. Collaborating with Crunchyroll was an idea inspired by my admiration of Street wear brands.

The new Hunter x Hunter is every bit as good as the old one!

(image is courtesy of kingdoms-fansub.com)Let me start off by saying that CrunchyRoll on Roku is a god send. I can't stress that enough. For the price of a decent lunch each month, you get to watch a ridiculous amount of anime in HD. P.S I am not paid to promote CrunchyRoll, but I know a good thing when I see it and I don't mind telling others about it.My current anime rotation, includes a lot of shows. Some not so exciting, others kinda relaxing and then some that you just have to watch like your life depended on it. Thats where Hunter...
