With a new season of anime now well and truly underway in Japan, fans face the dilemma of choosing which series they wish to watch and which ones they will pass on (Unless they decide to watch them all). One of the major anime video-on-demand services in Australia and New Zealand is AnimeLab, opened by Madman Entertainment last year. Although there is a week-long delay awaiting free members when it comes to simulcasts compared to their premium counterparts, the site does give those in Australia and New Zealand a free and legal option to watch the latest episodes from Japan.
Although this list could expand considerably over the coming weeks, Madman Entertainment have begun simulcasting sixteen series of various genres. Building upon continuing simulcasts, this list includes a range of new titles, series which are receiving an extra season, and even one title where Madman have only streamed the third season.
Building upon already simulcasted seasons on AnimeLab, fans can now check out the second season of K Project and Noragami. Although season one is not available via the service (but viewable on DVD), fans can also begin watching the second season of Aria the Scarlet Ammo. The most surprising addition to this list however is Yuruyuri: Happy Go Lily Season 3, with Madman Entertainment having never streamed or published the first two seasons.
New series on offer include Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid, One Punch Man, Concrete Revolutio, Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans, Attack on Titan: Junior High, Chivalry of a Failed Knight, The Asterisk War, Garo: Crimson Moon, Heavy Object, Anti-Magic Academy: The 35th Test Platoon, Shomin Sample and Dance with Devils. A schedule listing when each of these will be streaming each week can be found HERE.
