Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-Ohki is launching today at 7pm PT for members in the United States, Canada, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.


Man they are the weirdest regions ever, Ireland but not the UK? What happened there?


Yeah Sengoku Basara: Samurai Kings is not available to UK here either (yet IS on Funimation UK site). I think Rosario + Vampire is too.

It's not even that, it's just the fact that it's [Tenchi Muyo OVA] is available in Ireland but not the UK, like as in the UK and Ireland are usually a combined thing, it'd be like something being available in Canada but not the US.

It is weird if those two things are on Funi's UK site though but not here, I mean usually when UK rights aren't available for a Funi show it's because someone over here has the DVD rights (like Manga UK, MVM, All the Anime etc.), but unless Funi organised deals with such companies to have a wider selection available when they launched the UK division, it seems completely illogical.

Rosario+Vampire, such wasted potential. The original manga actually had things to say about bigotry and the cycle of hatred it creates. Decent story with a fair number of surprises.

The anime threw all that out and cranked the fanservice up to 11.

Guess the Ireland only was oversight as it's showing up to view for me now in Scotland. Perhaps the ones I mentioned will eventually show up here too.

I wish the Daily Life of High School Boys was available here in Australia. Oh well, not exactly surprised, we don't get many catalog titles here in Australia, as the USA and Canada seems to be Crunchyroll focus.


One of the problems is Australian/NZ distributors saying no. Hanabee Entertainment has the rights to it https://hanabee.com.au/products/daily-lives-of-high-school-boys-dvd Though judging by the $9.99 clearance price tag it's likely gone forever now. But overall they don't really like sharing/streaming their titles.
Few on Netflix and on Animelab rest are home video only. CR can't exactly override how they operate.
Hanabee did have it's own streaming service but closed it without notice and no announcement regarding why since. Currently the site just has a still image of a loading bar that says "Now loading". In a attempt to trick people I guess because they are nice like that...

If you are unaware Australia/NZ also has access to Hidive.com as well as Funimation.com for anime titles not found on here.

--------

Blessing of the Campanella is a interesting thing. Funimation has it on it's streaming service as well as Youtube channel available for Australia/NZ but not on here. So anyone from Australia/NZ disappointed with it not being on here just look on those choices before going down the pirate path.


Yeah, Hanabee doesn't seems to be that great, to be honest. Not really Crunchyroll's fault, it's mostly Hanabee's fault I suppose. I think it's been more than a year already that their streaming service has been down, at this point I doubt it's coming back.

Oh, I am aware. Admittedly I do forget about them sometimes, but I do plan on paying for a subscription on Hidive eventually (they have some interesting titles there).

Thanks for that. Really helpful stuff.

It is something that could happen if Funimation retained streaming rights for itself when it sub-licensed a series but did not retain rights to sub-license the stream. That happening for just the UK and not for Eire would tend to indicate a sub-license to a cable channel (or broadcaster) which only picked up UK rights.

But if it "cleared up" shortly after the series became available, it's more likely to be a glitch in the geofiltering (database or software).

Yeah it seems to have been a mistake, I'm in England and it's available here now as well (also I made a mistake I meant Tenchi Muyo Ryo-Ohki, I thought it was the Tenchi Muyo OVA that had the oddly-listed licensing).

As I said in my response above, it does seem to have just been a mistake, but it's interesting you raised that point. In the UK we've only just very recently (actually I don't know if it's even started yet) started having anime back on TV on this one channel All the Anime made a deal with, so normally I would think what you said about sublicensing to a cable company / broadcaster would be highly unlikely. However, the original Tenchi Muyo Ryo-Ohki series is perhaps old enough that it could have been aired on TV here before the anime-streaming channels went away. Having said that, I didn't even watch Pokemon or Yu-Gi-Oh! when I was a child, which were the only anime I recall ever having been on TV to my knowledge, so I can't say for sure when other anime stopped being broadcast here.

An interesting thought anyway, but yeah I think it was just a typo basically.

Linda sucks that CR has to obey to the Licensors really, every show that has the CR license is worldwide (except for asia for some reason)

@ pikapikanina, There are typos in the URL links to the Tenchi Muyo series - they're missing the "h" in "tenchi."

OVA series 1 and 2:
/tenchi-muyo-ova-series

OVA series 3:
/tenchi-muyo-ryo-ohki

Most of these animes aren't available in Europe Like Luxembourg where i'm from.
Are more older animes coming to Crunchyroll?

One thing that makes it murkier is you don't know just from what is showing, since broadcast/cable/satellite channels, if they have the rights, they will just sit on them if they are not interested in using them right now. It's kind of, "who knows, maybe something happens that will make these interesting again before the license expires".

But this was a bigger issue a decade ago. Like any other licenses, broadcast licenses last as long as the contract says, but lots of them would be in the same 5 to 10 year range as physical distribution licenses, so if newly signed (or newly renewed) licenses for cable/satellite channels were limited by 2007, then most old broadcast licenses would have expired.

When a package of rights becomes available, Crunchyroll is sure to bid on them ...
... but most of these are from the existing Funimation catalog that Crunchyroll got the rights to the subs under the cross-distribution deal, which are being moved over at a bit slower pace than they originally announced.

Funimation originally never asked for more than North American rights, and only got the Oz/NZ/UK/Eire/SAfrican rights because of how some Japanese licensors carved up the international rights ... and even more recently, were only extending that to the UK, which then resulted in them getting a set of Scandinavian rights because of the way that some Japanese licensors carved up their European rights.

Getting more of these for Benelux would typically require either getting a package deal from the original rights holders after original European rights expire, or having one or more of the European rights holders do a deal with Crunchyroll like Funimation did.

TBH, I feel like I'm *underpaying* for the value of CR to me here in the USA

Here's a list of what new shows are available where in the current season.

After the first few shows, it looks pretty good for the Netherlands - lots of "worldwide excluding Asia" and such:
