Crunchyroll Gets More Crunchy, Adds DEATH NOTE, VAMPIRE KNIGHT, More

As a devoted film and TV addict who enjoys watching anime as part of a balanced genre diet, I'm glad to hear that Crunchyroll, which already describes itself as "the world's most popular anime brand, is adding to its massive programming offerings this week.

This is all thanks to a a new distribution deal with VIZ Media, and includes Death Note, a selection of Naruto films, and Vampire Knight, which launches today, as well as Inuyasha and Hikaru No Go, which will launch later this week. It's good timing, since the Fall anime simulcast season is wrapping up soon. And who wants to deal with family, friends, and/or loved ones over the holidays without a little anime to defuse tense situations?

While this is not shocking news, since Crunchyroll is the majority owner of VIZ Media Europe Group, it's good news for those of us who live in Canada and the U.S. Here's the complete list of titles, courtesy of Crunchyroll, starting December 16, including:

Accel World

Accel World Infinite Burst

Death Note

K - Season 1

K: Missing Kings

K: Seven Stories (Subtitle Only)

Naruto Shippuden: The Movie - Blood Prison
