@ukanime reports that this weekend (5th – 7th March) is Global Shinkai Day, and in celebration of the event, Crunchyroll will be streaming 3 Makoto Shinkai feature-length anime: 5cm/s, The Place Promised in our Early Days, and Voices of a Distant Star.
Gundam Unicorn preview streaming
From @Anime via @BeezEnt: The first 7 minutes of Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn will be streamed in English on the Bandai Channel website.
It’s a work in progress at the moment, but our new Stream Directory is online! The Stream Directory is a list of anime streaming providers and the shows that they stream. All the shows listed in the Directory have at least one episode available for streaming to the UK without a membership being required with the provider in question.
Classic Gundam series now streaming
@BeezEnt announced the availability of streams of various classic Gundam series on the Bandai Channel website. The site indicates that Mobile Suit Gundam, Mobile Suit Z Gundam, Mobile Suit Gundam Wing, Mobile Suit Gundam SEED, Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny and the first season of Mobile Suit Gundam 00 will be streaming at various points between now and the end of May across the Youtube, AnimeNewsNetwork and Crunchyroll sites.
Starting February 2010, this site is relaunching as a UK-centric anime blog with a focus on streaming media.
