Prison School is actually completely consistent with the policy of CR I mentioned, since CR had it as a simulcast for Middle East, North Africa, and Europe (excluding the UK, Ireland, the Nordics, Germany and German speaking countries).

The problem of disappearing streaming subtitled home video versions was one I raised at the start of the Funimation/CR partnership. Thankfully, they soon established a pattern of providing the home video versions (when available to Funimation), with the exception of those shows CR already had a simulcast in other countries. While the latter was less than optimum, at least it limited the damage. This policy was further reinforced when No-Rin (which CR also had as a simulcast in some countries) was recently added. At that time, people in those countries noted it was no longer available to them (having apparently silently expired some time this year), and as one would expect from the apparent policy, the videos we now have are those of the home video version, not the simulcast.

Then Shimoneta came along and seemingly threw that established policy out the window.

For the most part, Shimoneta is actually funnier with the censorship. It's one of the few animes I dont mind.

Just hoping that they add more territories to the catalog titles, even though it can be an annoying affair, the effort is appreciated.

Funimation stopped updating subs to uncut once the partnership started so Prison School never got updated


It's also pretty easy for paying customers to watch Prison School subbed and uncensored. The home release has exactly that. https://www.funimation.com/shop/home-video/prison-school-the-complete-series-157/

Ok I guess for Prison School that makes sense according to the previous pattern, since I never track the international-only non-NA CR simulcasts. I just hope the Shimoneta trend dosn't continue.

Maybe for the dialogue, but certain not the visual censorship. It doesn't even make sense since you're supposed to know what they are saying and doing in universe. This is the part behind the authorities' backs.

Well, that's not a good sign at all because like I mentioned , there's no way then for online subscribers to watch uncut home video versions in subtitled format, only dubbed then. The same customers have to buy the home video release again. If you're going that route, you might as well not subscribe and just buy the videos instead. Although maybe they'd like that because it'll be more profitable for them. Personally I already buy the blu rays but I've cut down buying with my subscription.

CR had it as a simulcast for many countries outside of Funimation's usual territories. See my earlier message for more details:

I really enjoy seeing Prison School and Shimoneta being added to the crunchyroll list but Probably not going to watch prison school on this site because of the censorship. I personally think that it ruins the vibe/atmosphere of the entire show and makes it hard to watch

p.s. I hope that doesnt happen to tokyo ghoul:RE either

Where in the world is the subbed version of Hyouka? I keep checking and checking, and it's not there.

Such a shame Escaflowne ithe Movie is only available in only 3.9% of the world's countries.As usual, those of us who aren't American (or Canadian in this case) are left out in the cold. Someday perhaps Crunchyroll get off their arses and treat their international customers with respect, although I imagine we'll all be long dead by then.

The sub is only available for streaming on Amazon, and it's not Prime, you have to "buy" it there. Funimation doesn't even have it subbed for streaming themselves, just the dub. After the second episode, you have to subscribe to finish.

On disk, it is still two separate sets on Funimation, Amazon and Rightstuf. Amazon's first set is a little cheaper than the others, but the second set is still full price on all three.

I wonder if these companies will ever get that their own practices keep validating torrenting as the only way to go for digital content...
