Erin on Crunchyroll

What happens to a high-quality anime series that doesn’t fit the current model for R1 licensing? Specifically one that is more than 26 episodes long, but doesn’t feature named magical attacks and fan service in every episode?

Increasingly the answer is that it ends up on Crunchyroll.com. The latest news is that they are picking up Kemono no Souja Erin (The Beast Player Erin).

If you haven’t seen this, it’s worth checking out. It has a leisurely pace but it’s a great story.
