I was pleased for about ten seconds until I noticed that it's not available in the UK. Oh, well.

Now that Funimation has picked up streaming rights to Strike Witches 2, does this mean you guys are gonna stop streaming it?

I thought that had been corrected and it was available in the UK now.

I would not expect that, as it would have been strange for CR to sign a "terminable at will" agreement. It more likely means they didn't sign an exclusive agreement.

This could mean that if CR's agreement has an end or renewal date that it may not be renewed, depending of course on the terms of Funimation's agreement. I note Funimation licensed it for both streaming and home video.

I think it would be advisable for international and premium members to not put off watching the series, just to be on the safe side. I would not be surprised to see this one disappear 30 days after the last episode is aired.

Oddly enough, I did not find a mention of this at the current time in the news section of Funimation's website, although it is confirmed by ANN:

EDIT 09/30/10: Regarding my paragraph above ("I think it would be advisable..."), it appears my prediction was correct. If you go to page for Strike Witches 2 now, you'll see this:



Availability Notes: All kadokawa titles will be removed 30 days after the airing of the last episode.
