Nice to hear Crunchyroll is expanding its services. Plus, France has quite a history of anime fandom going on since perhaps the 1970s, when French dubs like Goldorak - Le Robot de l'Espace (dubbed from UFO Robot Grendizer)and Albator, Le Corsair de l'Espace (dubbed from 1978's Space Pirate Captain Harlock) came out. This should be a fun surprise for the France-based otaku community.
By the way, another Fall 2013 anime series happened to premier on the same day this article got posted, and with a streaming service showing it too. It's Gundam Build Fighters, and it can be found streaming every week on Gundam.Info. I definetly recommend it for both Gundam fans and those new to the myhtos. Oddly, not all Fall 2013 premiers got listed (for example, Wanna Be the Strongest in the World which premiered on 10/06/2013).

There are still two Pokémon jets in service, just not the "Pikachu Jumbo" model. The most recent, dubbed 777-300 "Peace Jet", debuted in 2011.
However, it is sad to see the "Pikachu Jumbo" go, as it was for a time the flagship of the plane series.

Wow lots of Pokemon news! I remember when the Pikachu Jumbo jet first came out. I always wanted to ride it! Too bad its retired now. Maybe they'll make more pokemon jets as new pokemon get created. Anyway, thanks for the news!
