Crunchyroll app and Neon Alley channel planned for PSN
Sony is serving up two new features for anime fans on PSN.
The company has partnered with VIZ Media to deliver a 24-hour anime channel called Neon Alley this fall. It will be available to PS3 owners for $6.99/month and include animes such as Naruto Shippuden, Inuyasha: The Final Act, and Death Note, as well as new titles and original content for anime and manga afficionados.
The Crunchyroll app will stream content from the PS3, providing episodes of Shugo Chara, Hunter X Hunter, and Sket Dance, among others, and Korean drama shows like Dr. Jing. Gamers can sign up for a 30-day free trial and choose one of three membership types: Anime (all anime titles and simulcasts for $6.95/month), Drama (all drama titles and simulcasts for $6.95/month), or All-Access (everything for $11.95/month).
