Finally, DRM-free anime from Toei

If you’ve read any of my previous blog posts about Anime stuff, you’ll probably know that I’m a big fan of the Pretty Cure series.

Stuff like this makes my day.

Toei publishing Anime (even Pretty Cure) in North America with English subtitles is nothing new.  They’ve had it up on Direct2Drive for a while now.  What’s new is the episodes that will be posted on Crunchyroll will be available DRM-free!  Starting this Wednesday, you can either watch a stream online for free (with commercials) or purchase the uninterrupted episodes to download for US$1.99 each, in XVid, iPod, or PSP formats, with NO DRM.

I am so going to buy every episode they post.  Not only just to express my appreciation for creating this awesome series (now that they’re giving me a way to do so) but also to show my support for finally distributing it in a way that doesn’t require me to sell my soul to Microsoft to be able to watch it.

Thank you Toei for finally understanding the Internet!
