I just checked the updated filter for anything new from the past few days, and Welcome to the N.H.K. (air dates of 2006) is what popped up as Updated four hours ago.

Why??? I'm looking for new, fresh and I get 2006? This filter is obviously broken right? Does anyone know what's up with this?

I don't know about the rest of the world but that show wasn't available in the UK on CR before this. It looks like CR either gained or extended their licence for this catalogue title.

They have been getting a lot of these old shows recently through a catalogue sharing agreement with Funimation.

Funimation will show the English dubbed versions of Funimation and CR shows.
CR will show the English subtitled versions of Funimation and CR shows.

Welcome to the N-H-K is new in the sense of a newly uploaded/catalogued title.

Search filter semantics, I suppose.

Newly updated=/=Simulcast

Newly updated may mean it is a recent addition to the catalog. Simulcasts means the anime is airing within the current season, I believe.

As others stated it is just because it was recently added. Same as the others listed in the news article linked below.

If it's new on the site as compared to yesterday, that's an Update. It's different.

(And in NHK's case, boy, is it ever.)

Im pretty sure it wasn't available on CR in the US before. I think it's just a recent addition CR.

I moved this to Site Support / Minor Questions.

As others have stated, while these aren't new shows, they are new to Crunchyroll.

(This has been happening for a while, as Crunchyrolll has been adding a lot of stuff from their partnership with Funimation. You must have just looked at the right time this time. Also, it might be a bit more noticeable now, since many of the actual new shows (from summer season) have already had their final episode, so there are fewer current season shows in the "Updated" mix.

Well, not to knock the show in fact I enjoyed it but oh well. At least some people who didn't get to see it before might now.
