I don't understand the what the delays are for..

Tokyo is doing perfectly fine.. and Bleach aired right on schedule but wasn't subbed by CR. Laziness?

Anyways, my sincerest regrets to what happened in Japan. It really sucks when one of your favorite country's is hit this hard.

Tokyo is doing fine... except for the lack of public transportation and rolling blackouts. You dont need electricity to broadcast anime right? It's all powered by magical girls on hamster wheels.

There is something I don't understand: even if the episode didn't air on the tv stations, crunchyroll should already have the video to give to it's users, considering the are given the video 1week before the airing date (as past leaks have proven).
So, why should the availability on CR depend on the japan's airing?


Because it is a "simulcast" broadcast simutaniously with the Japanese. CR broadcastiing it first could have an effect on the ratings so they won't allow it until they broadcast. Have some patience and let things get sorted out over there.

Probably and depending on overall damages it may take a while(the studio maybe completely destroyed for all we know).Plus with the whole electrical problems there would be no point in airing it when no one can watch....

There is discussion of this in the Spring Anime 2011 Preview topic, starting on the page I linked to.

We should be grateful that Japan even allows simulcasts (and available so inexpensively) to us after the years and years of revenue lost due to fansubbing. If you have time to post on forums worrying about the delay in simulcasts, you have enough time to research which organizations are providing the type of relief in Japan that you feel is most important and donate. If you are too pressed for the funds, then clean out your closet and go through your electronics and put together a donation bag ready to be given when the immediate relief efforts are done and people will be needing clothing, bedding, etc. since they have lost all of their own.

What truly is sad is that if this had happened in a different country, (from what I have read on the forums) would give the time of day to donate or help in relief efforts since they would still be getting their simulcasts on time and wouldn't have any vested interest in said country. :-/

It is not as if discussing it will harm those in Japan, nor will avoiding discussion of it help them. In fact, unless you known someone that has loved ones or friends in Japan that you can provide comfort to, there is little most of us can do except donate.

Some people are simply seeking clarification (although there is little to be had, due to the volatile nature of ongoing events), and would be like, "Oh, okay" once they got it. In contrast, however, there was someone over in another section of the forum stating that CR should give credit (i.e., extend memberships) for simulcasts delays.

Personally, my concern is that while these shows are mere entertainment to us, their production and eventual distribution are the basis of the actual livelihoods for groups of people back in Japan.

I believe if you check with a reputable charitable organization (i.e., the Red Cross), they would advise against donations of physical items for Japan, as it is logistically impractical. One would be be better off rounding up electronics they no longer use, anime and manga they no longer view or read, selling that on eBay, and donating the proceeds from the sale.

According to ANN, Fuji TV is planning on broadcasting the Noitamina block as scheduled on Thursday. Here is the poorly translated tweet, by Koji Yamamoto (koji8782 山本幸治), the producer for Noitamina, that they got their info from:


Because it is story of tomorrow, gradually. For the present, it is schedule, but it broadcasts [noitamina] of tomorrow. Such a time is, but the one which is enjoying on air, please view.

for those of you that can read Japanese, or have better translators than Babelfish, here is the original:

明日の話なのでそろそろ。今のところの予定ですが、明日のノイタミナは放送します。こんな時ですがオンエアを楽しみにしてくださっている方、ご覧ください。

Hopefully that means Wandering Son will run on schedule here...

They also reported that Gosick, Dragon Crisis, and Kore wa Zombie desu ka? are all being delayed by the studios/broadcasters.

Gosick:

The anime series did not air on TV Tokyo on March 11 during the emergency earthquake special programming. The anime will not air on TV Aichi on March 21, TV Osaka on March 22, TVQ Kyushu Broadcasting on March 23, and TV Setouchi on March 23. When the anime resumes on TV Asahi, TVQ, and TV Setouchi, it will be in rescheduled timeslots.

(http://www.gosick.tv/story/index.html )

Dragon Crisis:

This week's airing of Dragon Crisis! episode 10 was cancelled, but plans for a rescheduled future airing will be announced on the anime's website

(http://dragoncrisis.jp/news/).

Kore wa Zombie desu ka?:

This week's airing of Kore wa Zombie Desu ka? episode 10 was put on hold. The rescheduled future airing of the episode will be announced on the anime's website

Let them take as much time as they need, people's lives have been completely turned upside down over there, the last thing they should be worrying about is getting TV shows out on time.

Take this time to enjoy CRs library of other shows if you need something to watch.

Good point - I have a good few series on my watch list I should catch up on. Don't need a premium membership to do that, of course, but that's another discussion. I daresay CR will do right by their paying customers in the end though...

Tokyo is not doing "perfectly fine" ~ Tokyo is experiencing rolling blackouts, which disrupts operations of the studios, the transport to get to the studios, and operations of the individuals doing the subtitling ~ either for Crunchyroll or, with Naruto and Bleach, for Viz Media.

Right now, delays in broadcasts are often due to being pre-empted by news coverage, so it depends on the lead broadcaster as much as anything else. For example, FujiTV has been 24hrs news, TV Tokyo has had increased news coverage around existing programming.

Since subbing is normally done after the episode is in the can, the episode can be finished and ready to air and the subtitling hit by the rolling blackouts. What "rolling blackout" means is that different areas are on different schedules, so its possible that whomever is doing Bleach for Viz is affected while whomever is doing, say, Letter Bee for Crunchyroll is in a different area and is not affected.

And once all the material that is in the can has gone to air, the question of whether the studios can work around the rolling blackouts comes into question.
