Sorry, as a citizen of the US's 'best friend and biggest trading partner' I tend to notice such attitudes quickly. You'll note I hope that I confined my response to the poster and those who think like him, and didn't tar the rest of the US with the same brush.

I think you're preaching to the already converted ... unlike Funimation and VizMedia and TheAnimeNetwork, Crunchyroll has shown it wants the broadest streaming rights it can get. If Crunchy could simulcast all their shows everywhere outside of Japan, that would eliminate a lot of headaches.

Its the rights holders who have to be convinced. And not just a majority convinced ... all members of a production committee have to agree. That's just the Japanese way of doing business - operating by consensus in that kind of committee.

Ah really fuck crunchyroll, i'm so sick to see that they keep "forgetting" about the rest of Europe (including the netherlands). Every good simulcast i looked forward too is only for US or UK (But i do get some satisfaction by seeing that the UK is a lower piority than the US most of the time).

So they just lost a customer, and LONG LIVE FANSUBS for bringing the anime you (crunchyroll) cant.

Crunchy has not had success getting anime in Southern, Central, and Eastern Europe, but for the last three seasons, the Netherlands has got half or more of their simulcasts. Netherlands got two out of three series picked up this season, and has the majority of the series continuing from last season.

You want to see a streaming host forgetting about Europe, try all the other ones.

Well maybe i did go a bit far with expressing myself, I was pretty pissed, but it still dont change the fact that in the last seasons almost all of the anime i wanted to see was blocked (at least for a long time) . Maybe the producer/right holders hate me/my country but i cant help that either, I was paying for a service after all and its naturall a customer wants to get what he's paying for.

But anyway the thing i dont understand is how they can get anime to the UK but not the rest of Europe, i mean as far as i know the UK is part of Europe (well only in name i guess but still).

I will await next season to see how they manage then.

Broadcast rights are country by country, and combined with different language localizations in different countries, rights in the EU are are complex mess.

The obstacles can be broadcast (normally cable) rights, where a station like Animax-Europe could block rights in Belgium, France, Switzerland and a couple of other countries, package deals for countries, DVD licensors that have made it known they will not consider licensing a series that has been simulcast, and there are probably others.

And of course, its a production committee that holds the rights, and the Japanese committees are famous for giving ambiguous answers to avoid putting anyone in a committee on the spot.

Four seasons ago, less than half of simulcasts went to Ireland, the UK, the Netherlands, Denmark and the Nordic countries, and now its well over half, but of course that is not much comfort if one you really want is one of the majority blocked.

Thanks for trying to get these licenses for Europe. The more the better - and things are certainly getting better.
