Keep in mind the alternative offered by Kadokawa may have been no "simulcast" of these titles at all.

It is sheer speculation, but CR may have passed on Twin Angel: Twinkle Paradise as a way of trying to get Kadokawa to back off on the one week exclusivity for NicoNico, but when that failed, they agreed to it for the other 3 titles.



I'm not terribly worried about it now considering I'm not really interested in any of the "delayedcast" series; there's enough on my viewing plate that I don't need to see them right away. I would be worried if simulcasters were steered towards timed exclusives more often, because if I did want to watch it right away and discuss with folks, I'd just download it. It just doesn't seem like a wise or even necessary move from Kadokawa in my eyes, assuming this timed exclusive thing isn't a mistake.

Usagi Drop would be a great addition to Crunchyroll and anime in general. though the other two i'm not sure about.

I really hope it's just a mistake. A delayed release defeats one of the main benefits of premium membership, and is hardly a "simultaneous broadcast." One of the reasons I purchased a membership was to alleviate the fansub drama; it'd be frustrating to find out that it's just flavored differently through simulcasting.

On the positive side, premium members at CR will still reap the benefits of higher resolution (NicoNico.com simulcasts are currently only 360p), and both free and premium members will be able to access the episodes after the first week (only members can access them on NicoNico after the first week).



I was wondering about this myself. And even if it is speculation, it's an entirely likely scenario.

/sigh It seems I'll just have to watch them on Niconico in hateful LQ, since I know my friends won't bother waiting for the good stuff to hit. At least I can still justify my Crunchy subscription with the other stuff they have here that'll be out on time.

I don't know what to say about these titles, but I like the character designs so far for all of them. I hope these titles are worthy to watch. ><

I actually purchased some of the Bunny Drop titles on a whim. It'll be great seeing the anime ^_^

Lately I've been watching nothing but mainstream shounen battle anime... I think I'll follow Usagi Drop, for a change of pace. It looks like something I'd really enjoy!
