Crunchyroll -

All of the Sora No Otoshimono videos were pulled with a lot of people still watching the series. Don't you have a clearly worded license from the show's owner Kadokawa Pictures? Isn't the pull or expiration date clearly stated? If so its really puzzling why you don't publish it within the show's info page so we have a chance to know if and when the show is going to get pulled. Hulu does this on a video by video basis and its really helpful. Less upset viewers when the show suddenly vanishes.

Usually we have an "Availability Note" that displays on the Library page and on all of the videos in that series but mistakes were made and no availability note was put up for Sora No Otoshimono. So I'm sorry if you were in the middle of watching it but we can't change the past so we'll be more careful in the future.

Here's an example of a series with an Availability Note for reference.

Thanks for the quick reply - BasouKazum. I see that on Omamori Himari - Ok - Exactly, that's perfect. I'm still a bit noob'ish so I hadn't seen such here yet. Good to know the effort is there. Cheers.

Makes you wonder though, if a series is no longer available here (i.e. pulled) if a DVD licensee (like Section23 or someone) could pick it up and release it in the states or where-ever else. Just curious is all...

We do not retain DVD/BD rights so any company can pick up DVD/BD licenses for any show we have here or no longer have here.
