Hey, I'm trying to watch the love live sunshine s2 simulcast. It is the correct time, but no new video is showing up on the page. What's going on?

Yeah it's there now. It was just the special before.

I had to go to the crunchyroll twitter account to find the first episode initially, and then it was posted by the time I finished. Just thought it was strange that the page hadn't updated.

That's been happening since last season, the new episode goes up, and appears on the RSS feed and Twitter, so you can play it directly from there, but the show page, queue, and apps don't always show it right away. Sometimes it takes as much as a half-hour.

I have just written it off as something they are doing to try to fix the other traffic-related site problems they have had for a long time due to the old monolithic database structure they are/were running on (according to the Ellation blog post earlier this year).

I hope it is only temporary as they continue to make other structural changes, but even if it isn't , a half-hour isn't such a long time to wait, at least not for me; I have lots of other things to watch in the meantime.
