-Good Luck Ninomiya-kun - 3eps/wk
-H2O Footprints in the Sand - 3eps/wk

Good Luck Ninomiya-kun:
“ Ninomiya-kun” is a serious and sober high school guy, SHUNGO NINOMIYA. He becomes an unlikely romantic hero when his mysterious older sister RYOKO makes him shack up with his sexy classmate MAYU TSUKIMURA.

H2O Footprints in the Sand:

Takuma Hirose, an emotionally wounded boy becomes blind after his mother died in his childhood. For medical treatment, he moves to his mother’s home village where he enters a new school. On the first day, various girls enter his life: “Hayami Kohinata” who stubbornly avoids any contact with other people, “Hinata Kagura,” who is class president and likes taking care of others, but can sometimes be careless, and “Otoha”, a cheerful girl who calls herself “Spirit of Time’s Sound.”

The small village has a sad secret. When Takuma discovers what it is, he must say good-bye to his boyhood and ascend the steps to adulthood. The journey is a challenge like none before and filled with battles he cannot avoid...

This is a story about loving someone for the first time and fighting for what is important. It is about growing up and the challenges we face, and it will bring back memories we all share of childhood and the transition into the world of adulthood.

Shikimori Kazuki, our hero, is a seventeen year old high school student. He attends the top-notch wizardry training school, Aoi Academy, but his grades are near the bottom of the barrel. In addition he can only use magic seven times throughout his whole life!! He will turn into dust once he uses all of his magic is gone, so he can’t even use his magic.

One day, he meets a beautiful girl who identifies herself as Miyama Yuuna.

“We’re husband and wife from this day on!”

Moreover, two more girls, Kazetsubaki Kuriko and Kamishiro Rin appear in front of shocked and speechless Kazuki. They all have their eyes on only one thing: The genes of Kazuki, the genes with the greatest magic potential in the world.

With three beautiful girls with their own agenda, what lies ahead of Shikimori Kazuki, a wizard with little magic ability?

I don't know if this is what the site is gonna be or if it's already what it is.  But this needs to be said:

All of the "borderline ecchi animu for reality-hating otaku NEETs" seem to be over at Chewyroll.

It's no wonder why Japan's government tries its best to pass laws against the otaku-tachi.

 I don't know anything about the first two series, but Maburaho is one of my favorite guilty pleasures.  I love that show!

Either Crunchyroll is desperate for new titles ... or getting smart and grabbing old shows that slipped under the radar before some big-name company does and overcharges for them on DVD.

"Good Luck Nonomiya Kun" I'm not certain if this is an odd translation for "Goshuushou-sama Ninomiya-kun" or if this perhaps a sequel. But worth watching.

I've not see H20 yet, so I can't comment on it.

I've seen the first few episodes of... wait ... Maburaho already has a US liscence on DVD does it not? Exceedingly overpriced too if I remember right.
