The Crunchyroll media distribution website has begun streaming episode 65 of the Shugo Chara! magical girl anime to its Anime Membership subscribers on Friday at 8:00 p.m. ET, which is within an hour of the episode's airing in Japan. The episode is actually part of the second series, Shugo Chara!! Doki, although both anime series adapt the same Shugo Chara! story by the manga duo Peach-Pit.
Crunchyroll has also begun offering two television anime from its previously announced catalog from Toei Animation — Galaxy Express 999 and Space Pirate Captain Harlock — via streaming, subscription, and downloadable options. Both space opera classics were created by Leiji Matsumoto, the co-creator of Space Battleship Yamato (Star Blazers).
