God Only Knows Season 2 isn't for this Winter, Shimono Hiro is Yabe-sensei from Mitsudomoe, so he's probably doing that and TWGOK S2 will probably be in the Spring or Summer.

Huh, one of these interests me. The Crunchyroll synophises are usually better than the ones Anime News Network provides. So out of the new simulcasts, this is apparently what I'll be watching:

-Rio: Rainbow Gate
-Cardfight!! Vanguard-Giving this a try.
-Dragon Crisis!-Giving this a try.
-Kore wa Zombie desu ka?

I love the look of those first 2, but Level E isn't up my street at all I'm afraid ^^

I can't believe this lineup... You didn't even get any good ones out of what 11 new shows? What happened to God only Knows season 2?... I know some people like these coming shows but I am one who will gladly state my mind that I do not like this and think it's just horrible and you could have done a survey and then pick the top choices and try to get those instead of picking random junk and hope people watch it.

For one thing, TWGOK Season 2 is not a Winter 2011 show. Last I heard it is slated for Spring 2011.

Second, your comment shows that you know nothing about how licensing of shows actually works. If they could have a poll and get the rights to the top choices of their members, I'm sure they would do that. Unfortunately, they have to actually pay for the rights to these shows, which means they have to negotiate streaming rights with the people that make and broadcast them in Japan. If they just grabbed the most popular things and put them on their site without negotiating rights, that would be ILLEGAL.

I personally wanted to watch several of the shows that they got, and didn't think that the Winter 2011 list of shows looked that great to begin with, so I am pleased at the ones they got. (I will catch Fractale and IS elsewhere. Otherwise, I think they have me covered...)

I think what Khaltazar meant was, he would have preferred it if Crunchyroll had done a poll on the upcoming releases to see which ones were more popular, and then negotiate with the creators of those shows to get the streaming rights for them. He didn't mention "Go and get fansubs" at all.

To be honest, the Winter 2011 Anime season lineup as a whole was pretty dire. To be honest, the only title Crunchyroll didn't get that I'm interested in is "Infinate Stratos".

But yeah, TWOGK S2 is slated for April 2011, so it will probably be in a Spring line-up.

So what were these "good ones" that CR didn't get?

Given that you didn't know The World God Only Knows S2 isn't due until April, I wouldn't be surprised if you expected CR to get other shows that are not even airing this Winter.

Alright. Gosick, Dragon Crisis, and now Horo Musuko are on my watch list. I hope they add Puella Magica Madoka too.

The best bet for a Madoka simulcast at this point is ANN, since Aniplex is listed as one of production partners.

Conversely I'm intensely curious about it. To misquote bobby burns:

All I said was they should do a poll to see what shows the users want and try to get those shows. With Crunchyroll almost 100% monopoly on the Internet legal stream market they are very likely to get the top 10 choices easily.

Sorry, YouTube can be very wrong a lot of the time. I guess searching "Winter 2011 Anime" was a bad choice. I saw Mitsudomoe 2 on that same list as The World God Only Knows Season 2 as well as Rio - Rainbow Gate, Gosick, Fortune Arterial Season 2, etc.

I checked as I was writing this that the video that was bookmarked was deleted and a new video was uploaded with no TWGOK2.

Not very interested in Zombie (interesting premise, though), but I am psyched about seeing Hourou Musuko and Level E available, as well as earlier-announced Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas and Gosick. Hope they turn out as good as they seem like they are.

Totally psyched about that showing up Crunchyroll. I didn't expect it to be here...now crunchyroll has gotten all the shows I was gonna watch. I'll be visiting more often, I think.

it is surprising to see a Noitamina anime here, but funimation might also get it, just like they grabbed heavens lost property season 1 and 2 after they started streaming here,

I too am excited for wondering son, I also enjoyed aoi hanna, so I hope to enjoy this one,

so now there are 7 out of ten shows I really want to see, crunchyroll, this season I feel I am getting more than my moneys worth, just I wont be watching your new card game anime, nor the saint seyia simulcast, never cared for the original saint sayai, but I will give level E two or three episodes, but I wont know if I like it until then, the synopsis doesnt interest me, but I will try it,

YESS! This made my day! Another anime I was hoping to watch this season - "Kore wa Zombie desu ka?"!

I won't ask for anymore; CrunchyRoll has made such efforts to fulfill most of my wishlist! oUo
