In news that literally came out of left field today, Crunchyroll and Funimation have partnered up for what could be the best thing for anime fans in recent history. As of TODAY, all of Funimation's subbed simulcasts will be streaming on Crunchyroll, and all of Crunchyroll's subbed titles will make their way to Funimation Now, Funimation's streaming service. Now, this isn't all happening overnight, but the endgame is that Funimation will be streaming dubbed anime with Crunchyroll handling subtitled anime. This is GREAT, as now you do not have to sign up for both services if you want only subbed or dubbed anime. Now to see if Neon Alley, Daisuki (which does license some title to both both Crunchyroll and Funimation), Amazon and Netflix to work together for the greater anime good... A guy can dream.
Read up and find out more from Crunchyroll and Funimation and they both have FAQ's up for you all to catch up on.

Press Release after the break
Day 1 Left, Day 2 Right Just to be clear, Jessica Nigri was asked to leave and change, she was allowed back in... But on day 1 of PAX east, she went dressed as Lollipop Chainsaw's star, Juliet Starling, without issue. Day 2 she went dressed as the same character in one of the multiple alt costumes and asked to leave to change. She returned in the cheerleader uniform from day 1 she was asked to change again, cover up, or leave entirely! Did I mention she was at the WB Games booth and is the official character model for the game? So what's the point of this post? Most of the Grotto staff come from a place in the US where people can go grocery shopping wearing A LOT less than what Nigri had on! Now if she were dressed in one of the alternate costumes from Dead or Alive Extreme Beach Volleyball, then I can understand the issue. What do you guys think? Let us know in the comments below or on Google+ and after the break, see Nigri's Day 3 costume! Updated 4/9/2012: Added
