So this is quite a bit sudden (apparently even for the folks at CR), but at midnight Pacific Time on Sunday, August 31st, Crunchyroll will be losing a grand total of 16 series, 15 of which are Kadokawa series. The series that will be affected are the following:
- The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (both seasons)
- Nichijou (aka My Ordinary Life)
- Otogi-Soushi (A Manga 2.5 title, the only non-Kadokawa title)
You might notice that there are a few really big name titles on that list. The sad thing is, for many of these titles, their removal from CR means they will lose the only legal way to see them. Haruhi and Lucky Star have been picked up by FUNimation, so I fully expected them to eventually be removed from CR, but now shows like Gosick and the horrifically under appreciated Nichijou won't have a home. So if any of these shows are on your CR queue/backlog, get to watching!
I'm personally gonna focus on the KyoAni trio of Haruhi, Lucky Star, and Nichijou.
