Streaming service Viewster have announced the addition of more Aniplex shows to their anime line-up! The service have today added the following shows:

Servant X Service, Blast of Tempest and Silver Spoon can all be found and streamed on Crunchyroll in the UK. However, this is the first time we’ve had access legally to the first season of Oreimo as Crunchyroll only have the rights to the second season of the show here.

Anime Limited have already made a bit of a buzz this morning after putting a couple of top series on Netflix, but the news doesn’t end there. Anime Limited have just revealed how Q4 looks for them.
September looks set to be somewhat quiet, but they’re finally releasing Gurren Lagann in a number of different sets for the anime fans who have been keeping an eye out for that. In October Anime Limited have quite a packed month as they’ll be releasing HAL, Blood Lad, and Patema Inverted.
Moving on to the last couple of months of the year, Anime Limited will be releasing Wings of Honneamise and Space Dandy in November. In December they will be a releasing a currently unknown movie, which will also be treated to theatrical screens during October and November. There is a chance we’ll be seeing the first part of Kill la Kill in December as well.
More information about these releases can be found on the All The Anime website right here.
Interesting news appeared this morning as Anime Limited revealed that Kill la Kill and Gurren Lagann are now available to watch on Netflix UK!
All 25 episodes of Kill la Kill have gone up on the service and can be watched subbed. Meanwhile all 27 episodes of Gurren Lagann have gone up on the service and can be watched subbed or dubbed. Both are top class series’ so it’s really nice to see them being added to Netflix. You can read my review of Kill la Kill right here
Overall the range of anime on offer to the UK via Netflix is fairly slim compared to the US offerings, but with Anime Limited seemingly interested in bringing more anime to the service here we should have some fairly interesting times ahead!
