Hi Everyone,

Unfortunately the second season of Encouragement of Climb will be expiring at the end of day of October 9 PT, so if you haven't watched it yet, now is the time to binge! Season 1 will still remain available.


Aoi prefers indoor hobbies and is afraid of heights, but her childhood friend Hinata loves to show off her passion for mountain climbing. As young children they once watched the sunrise from the top of a mountain, and now they've decided to take up mountain climbing in hopes of seeing that sunrise again. They have cooking battles with mountaineering gear, climb small hills in their neighborhood, and meet new mountaineering friends as they learn the ropes of the hobby. When will they finally see that sunrise again?

so these will still be available for US members? Or is CR losing content now?

I assume Wanna Be the Strongest is staying due to the Funi owning it. Magica Wars is a few years old, kind of surprised it is going.

The license is expiring and there probably isn't enough views to throw more money to re new it. Doesn't look like a series that did well for them to begin with with it having 3 stars.

Magica Wars will be going away for everyone. Wanna Be The Strongest is probably only staying for the US & Canada due to CR's partnership with Funimation.

CR loses content from time to time, but at a far slower rate than they acquire it.

That's a lot of anime to watch in a manner of days...

Still these things happen very rarely.

If you decide you have time to watch one but not both, I put my recommendation in for Wanna be the Strongest in the World--it was quite fun for the sort of show it is, but I didn't find Magica Wars to be entertaining enough to watch past the 3-episode trial I gave it.

I really appreciate these little headsups on expiring licenses.
Always a good occasion to do some emergency bingeing on shows I often had sitting in my queue for years.

The timing this time is pretty tight, though. Announcing them expiring at the end of the month, at the end of the month makes for some interesting scheduling.

Thankfully neither of the titles this time around is my cup of tea but I'm remembering the creative time management I had to pull to fit the entirety of Beelzebub into a weekend when that (temporarily) expired a few years ago.

Magica Wars is also only 4 minute episodes, it isn't as much as it seems.

Oh GodsDammit!

I was hoping to rewatch Wanna be the Strongest again at some point. But my anime time is restricted owing to personal matters at the moment. More than two days' notice really needs to be given if people are expect to marathon shows without resorting to "other means".

If you're short on time, I'd go with Magica Wars. Every region of Japan has it's own magical girl in 4 minute episodes.

I'm personally not too pressed about these two animes leaving. Wanna be the Strongest in the World was ok anime but it was one of those one and done animes though, mediocre plot but still entertaining. If you can't watch this show by the end of the month you're honestly not missing anything.
