May is a gorgeous time of year and it often feels like it hangs in a delicate balance between a calm lull and the slow stirrings of spring. A perfect time for a beautiful, though sad, Pick for this month.

5 Centimeters per Second is a movie that follows the life of Tono Takaki as he falls in love, moves, grows up in a world full of changing technology and islands and summers and messages never sent until he reaches adulthood where his new responsibilities force him to re-evaluate what he wants out of his life. Directed by Makoto Shinkai, this movie is full of breathtaking settings that interweave with the realistic relationship dynamics and situations. If you love gorgeous films, this is one not to miss.

5 Centimeters per Second is a movie and is available in sub or dub form for free, legal viewing via Crunchyroll.

Streaming Pick of the Month: Fairy Tail (Seasons 2 & 3)

Fly blue cats, an ice wizard with an allergic reaction to clothing, a fire breathing magic user looking for a dragon and a blond haired novelist and celestial summoner who only wants enough money to pay her own rent. They all have one thing in common. They’re all members of the magicians’ guild Fairy Tail.

When season one left off, a dark alliance was forming in the background and season two picks up with a forced confrontation with some very dangerous dark guild members. Assuming everyone in Fairy Tail can be serious long enough to get anything done, which is highly debatable. If you loved the first season’s mix of beat em up action and hilarious comedy, don’t hesitate to jump on into the next two seasons while you can!

The second and third seasons of Fairy Tail (from episode 49 to 100) are now available for free legal streaming via Hulu. (Part of the first season is unavailable at this time)

Streaming Pick of the Month: Beyond the Boundary!

Introducing a perfectly ordinary male high school student. Scratch that. He’s a immortal. Okay, so here’s our completely average heroine! Oh, wait. She’s a Spirit Warrior feared for her unnaturally dangerous blood which can be used as a weapon. Well, fine! Let’s look at the school. A perfectly common place high school where high jinx are sure to ensure and- What? So even that place is over run with spirit chasing teachers and random Spirit Warriors and youkai and junk?
We get to keep the high school high jinx though, right? Good. Because between the serious emotional drama of the heroine’s past and the political intrigue with the Spirit Warriors, I’m going to need that episode of pop idol parodying. I’m going to need it bad.

Streaming Pick of the Month: The Eccentric Family!

Being a tanuki in modern Japan is no easy feet. And it’s even harder when your father was cooked in a stew, your brothers are combinations of useless and stressed over political unrest and your continuous job is to look after a cranky and stuck up old professor. Somehow, Yasuburo manages. But that Benten… she’s rather dangerous all on her own as well. She’s also somehow involved with the death of Yasuburo’s father. With the nomination of the next tanuki leader on the horizon, the mysteries behind the New Year’s hot pot are coming to the surface. Life may be far more complex than any of the tanuki family ever thought possible.

Streaming Pick of the Month: Gatchaman Crowds!

gatchaman_crowdsSaving the earth from aliens doesn’t sound like the most unique of plots, but Gatachaman Crowds takes a good swing at it by introducing a heroine with a very unique worldview. Suddenly, the enemies they thought they must always fight doesn’t seem to be the issue. Instead, it appears as if humanity itself may be their enemy. But can one girl’s positive worldview possibly be a match for mankind’s tendency to hate?

Gatchaman Crowds is currently being simul-cast via Crunchyroll with new episodes premiering every Friday. Click here to start watching!

Streaming Pick of the Month: Kobato!

kobato

Summer often brings to mind the outdoors, bright colors and youthful dreams. So why not spend some summer days with Kobato as she carelessly trots from day to day looking for broken hearts to heal while sleeping in a park at night? Full of cheerful colors and the wishful abandon common in CLAMP’s lighter works, Kobato may have a few serious moments here and there, but it always returns to chibi comedy and large dosages of optimism only anime heroines ever seem to posses.

All 24 episodes are available for free legal streaming via Crunchyroll. Click here to start watching!
