Premiere Date for Streaming of Boruto: Naruto Next Generation

Boruto: Naruto Next Generations will premiere on Crunchyroll on April 5 at 5:25 a.m. EDT.

Viz Media will also stream the series on Hulu starting on April 5.


The Hidden Leaf Village has entered an era of peace and modernity. Tall buildings line the streets, giant screens flash with images, and the Thunder Rail runs through the village, connecting each district together. Though it's still a ninja village, the number of civilians has increased and the life of the shinobi is beginning to change.

Boruto Uzumaki, son of Seventh Hokage Naruto Uzumaki, has enrolled in the Ninja Academy to learn the ways of the ninja. The other students are ready to dismiss him as "just the son of the Hokage,” but Boruto’s heart and character blow all their assumptions away.

As a series of mysterious events begins to unfold, it’s up to Boruto and his new friends to handle them. Like a gale-force wind, Boruto makes his own way into everyone's hearts; his story is about to begin!

This Saturday 'Attack On Titan Season 2' Premieres On Crunchyroll!

Beginning this Saturday, April 1,  on Crunchyroll you  can start  streaming the long awaited sequel to 'Attack On Titan Season 1.  In Attack On Titan Season 2' you can see what is happening to Eren, Mikasa, Levi, and all the other surviving members of the Scout Regiment (the Survey Corps). 

Follow Eren and his friends as they attempt to journey back to his hometown in order to discover the origins of the Titans and a method of destroying the man-eating giants, which have invaded their world.  Not only this, but perhaps discover more about why Eren can change into Titan form.

Is Eren really human? Or, a hybrid? Is he truly an ally, or is he potentially mankind's worst foe?

Can't wait? Well, you can  begin by refreshing  your memory of the series with episode 1 of Attack On Titan Season 1 now only on Crunchyroll.

UPDATE: Funimation will also begin streaming a simulcast version on the same day. Funimation announced in December that it licensed the second anime season. It is possible that this simulcast version is English dubbed.

Funimation describes the new season's story:

Eren Jaeger swore to wipe out every last Titan, but in a battle for his life he wound up becoming the thing he hates most. With his new powers, he fights for humanity's freedom facing the monsters that threaten his home. After a bittersweet victory against the Female Titan, Eren finds no time to rest—a horde of Titans is approaching Wall Rose and the battle for humanity continues!

Funimation Presents: Hayao Miyazaki's "Your Name" In Select Theaters Beginning April 7, 2017

Your Name

In Theaters, Friday, April 7, 2017

From director Makoto Shinkai, the innovative mind behind Voices of a Distant Star and 5 Centimeters Per Second, comes a beautiful masterpiece about time, the thread of fate, and the hearts of two young souls.

The day the stars fell, two lives changed forever. High schoolers Mitsuha and Taki are complete strangers living separate lives. But one night, they suddenly switch places. Mitsuha wakes up in Taki’s body, and he in hers. This bizarre occurrence continues to happen randomly, and the two must adjust their lives around each other. Yet, somehow, it works. They build a connection and communicate by leaving notes, messages, and more importantly, an imprint.

When a dazzling comet lights up the night’s sky, it dawns on them. They want something more from this connection—a chance to meet, an opportunity to truly know each other. Tugging at the string of fate, they try to find a way to each other. But distance isn’t the only thing keeping them apart. Is their bond strong enough to face the cruel irony of time? Or is their meeting nothing more than a wish upon the stars?
