That concludes the seventh round-up for the Crunchyroll simulcasts. Looking at the list there’s only 4 titles left to cover; Butlers: Chitose Momotose Monogatari, Full Metal Panic! Invisible Victory, High School DxD HERO, and Steins;Gate 0; the latter three have been acquired by Funimation (however Full Metal Panic! Invisible Victory will not be UK viewable on Funimation).

Known simply as 'Grav' by the anime community, his interests are flexible as he is generally not that bothered by what he watches, whether it's a top-tier series or an enjoyable isekai harem trash type. Either way, he does his best to bring folks the latest news on AUKN and also any other information and unboxing hauls over on his Normanic Vault blog.
