Crunchyroll continues its rollout of new shows today with such episodes as the latest Gosick and Cardfight!! Vanguard, but they're also building the coffers a bit more as well with some shows from Media Blasters. The rollout today is pretty solid for premium members as Moribito has episodes 9-24 now available for the series while for free users they have access to episodes 5-8. Media Blasters is also offering up Ikki Tousen - Dragon Destiny on the service by having episodes 2-12 available to them which brings the series out in full. Free users get access to the first episode. All of this occurs at 6 PM ET tonight, so if you're looking for some anime to watch while staying in on a Friday night, you can get some seriously good fantasy material with Moribito or you can go fanservice and fighting action with Ikki Tousen.
About Moribito: She carries the pain of eight souls. He carries the burden of one sacred spirit. At a time when the balance of nature still held the civilizations of mankind in thrall, a single drought could spell the end of a society and doom its inhabitants to piteous deaths. Prince Chagum has been imbued with the power to stave off the drought and bring new life to his empire. However, this is a suspicious time, and he is accused of possession by an evil spirit. Court advisors only see one solution. Chagum must be put to death by his own father's hand. His salvation is in the form of Balsa, a spear woman and mercenary from Kanbal, the kingdom across the mountains. Her skills are legendary, and although reluctant, she is held by a mysterious vow to save eight souls before she dies. Can she fend off an entire empire and make Chagum her eighth soul?
