Yes, Bleach is now Live on Crunchyroll! That is the first 9 episodes of the current season in Japan, including the one that just aired at 2:30AM today in Tokyo. This is no pirate deal, but a real legal streaming contract between Crunchyroll and TV Tokyo making the program available to paid Premium Members beginning today. If you are not a premium member, but have signed up for a free membership, it becomes available to you next Tuesday, the 15th; that is still a lot sooner than when the DVD comes out. To put that last bit into perspective, the Season 5 DVD box set that hit the shelves today ends with episode 109; the episode that aired this morning in Tokyo was episode 274.
