Anime On Demand Announce Simulcasts
Anime streaming site Anime On Demand has revealed its Autumn simulcast lineup via Twitter. The announcement covers five series - harem actioner To Love-Ru - Trouble - Darkness, Angelic Layer-esque action series Busou Shinki, slice of life series Hidamari Sketch x Honeycomb, romantic comedy Chunibiyo Demo Koi ga Shitai! and supernatural actioner K.
Simulcasts enable viewers to see new anime at near enough the same time as viewers in Japan, usually for a subscription fee. However, Anime On Demand have announced that all 6 of their autumn simulcasts will be available free to UK viewers, with only a short advert at the beginning! This is apparently a one season exclusive and future simulcasts will return to a subscription model, but they apparently have something big in the pipeline they cannot reveal yet too. Hopefully we'll hear more at the MCM London Expo in late October.
