Rejoice, PlayStation3 owners: The Crunchyroll app for PS3 is here!

Crunchyroll is, in my not so humble opinion, one of the best things to happen to the anime community (and the anime fan). Gone are the days when you had to agonize over whether or not you felt like buying the (highly priced) first volume of an anime DVD series, only to find that, ehh, […]
