Shin Koihime Musou: Otome Tairan on Crunchyroll

I'd been wondering when/if CR would announce a simulcast for Shin Koihime Musou: Otome Tairan. The first episode aired this past week. It was pretty much what KM viewers expect- light, silly fluff with yuri sprinkles and a dollop of service. It isn't any less stupid better than previous seasons, but it was so over-the-top "wtf" that it was kind of fun (tsk, tsk, take responsibility, Bachou!). I'm glad to see CR still picking up yuri-ish tiles. (And I love how their synopsis of the series makes it sound more serious than it really is.)

A new episode will appear on CR every Friday at 11:00 a.m. PDT. Unfortunately, the announcement doesn't mention where Otome Tairan will not stream- I'm presuming that, as with the first (and again I'm presuming, second) season of KM, it will stream everywhere except in Japan, France, Belgium, China, Luxembourg, Andorra, Monaco, Taiwan, and Hong Kong.

In a statement which will probably surprise most people who are familiar with my anime tastes, I rather like Koihime Musou.

But that's mainly because I enjoy picturing the spirits of ancient chinese generals crying in misery as they watch their legacies butchered by moefied incarnations of themselves.

@ Snark- I wonder which they would find worse- their Koihime Musou or Ikki Tousen incarnations. :P I've enjoyed mentioning both series to a couple of people who have read RotTK- just to see their "Wtf" reactions.
