Your Cart is Empty

You can watch a ton of anime next week on Twitch

I still remember the days when Twitch was adamantly not the streaming service for you if you wanted to stream something other than a videogame. It wasn't even that long ago, all things considered. But that's all over now, because we're in anime territory, people.

Twitch and Crunchyroll have partnered up to stream 15 anime series for people to see with their eyes and chat about incessantly in the sidebar. The so-called "Crunchyroll Marathon" kicks off on July 27th via Twitch Presents, and promises a ton of recently released anime, though only Mob Psycho 100, Yuri!!! On ICE,and Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid have been confirmed so far. That's still a pretty good lineup, though, seeing as Mob Psycho 100 comes from the creator of One Punch Man and was easily one of last year's best anime. Yuri!!! On ICE is a very strong contender as well, and Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid is the best anime you'll find about a tired lesbian, her high-energy wyrm of a girlfriend, and their adorable, horned dragon child.

Sadly, I won't be able to join in the fun, as my country will have the stream blocked due to licensing restrictions. VPNs aren't quite fast enough over here to make streaming video a feasible prospect. If you live in Asia, check this list to see if you'll suffer the same fate as me.
