Time Jam streamed by Crunchyroll

I've been working for a while now on an article about the animated version of Valerian and Laureline (it's taking a long time because I am quite busy and it's a 40-episode series; also I am writing it in french, but will probably include a synopsis of the article in english whenever I post it online) so I was quite pleased when I read on Anime News Network that Crunchyroll was streaming it.

Based on the famous graphic novel written by Jean-Claude Mezieres and Pierre Christin, Time Jam: Valerian and Laureline is an animation co-produced by the French publisher Dargaud and the Japanese studio Satelight. All premium anime and all-access Crunchyroll members will have access to the entire 40 episodes immediately, while only the first five episodes will be available to free users now with the subsequent five episodes rolling out henceforth. Unfortunately, due to licensing limitations, the series is available only to the U.S. audience. If you are located in the right region, episodes can be accessed from,, the free iPad and iPhone application, the Boxee application and affiliate partners.

More information can be found in the full press release and on You can also find a previous blog entry with the series' trailer.
