Is it me or are the summer 2011 Simulcasts happening a little slowly this season what i mean by that is in past seasons we have gotten to watch the shows an hour or two after they aired in Japan while this season most of the shows i have found on other sites up a week before they are on crunchyroll. i know this has to do with contracts and stuff but it is still annoying at least for me to pay for a preimum membership just to end up seeing it on less legal sites a week earlier than i see it on crunchy.

some of the shows are posted on NicoNico first, they have the first airing but after a week previous episodes are only available to their premium members. Sacred Seven was provided by Bandai and also appears on Hulu.

Yeah, no question Crunchy dropped the ball this season. There are only like 4 new anime this season that they have within an hour of it airing.. thats not really acceptable after they had like 10-12 last season.

to me it doesn't really feel like they dropped the ball, more like someone already had their hand in the cookie jar and CR just got the crumbs. I'm pretty sure Crunchy always wants to be first but, things don't always go they way you want it to, who know next season might be even worse though I really hope not.

yeah I think the various production companies are getting their hands directly into the Steaming idea now and CR is getting some sloppy seconds. At least CR isn't getting cut out completely.

I don't mind waiting for episodes as long as I get to see them (and don't have to put up with Ads...hate freaking Ads, they're why I don't watch TV anymore.)

I agree with you after reading some of the responces i think that as more sites suc h as niconico are offering legal streaming to the U.S. that it might be harder for CR to simulcast within an hour or two becasue they dont get that right anymore. and i definitaly agree with your cookie jar analogy thats exactly what it feels like to me.

Well i have noticed how if an anime is reserved for premium members than it comes out within the hour and everything else comes out one week later. So i don't really get why they cant have all the anime on that same system like they did last season since everyone who watched it straight away would be paying for it. I guess it could be that less people have premium accounts than before so Chrunchyroll simply cant buy the rights for as many anime as they once could.

I dont think thats nessarlily the problem. I think if CR could have bought the rights for us to see them on hour later they would have. I think the problem is that other sights got to the rights first such as niconico therefore CR could not have gotten them even if they would have wanted them. Its the simple fact that too many sites are now purchasing the rights to stream and its looking like first come first serve for who ever gets the rights first and CR was just a little late on the draw this season

Kadowaka, the company that owns the rights to the novels that anime like R-15, Dantalian and Itsuka Tenma are based on, also is owned by the same company as NicoNico. So it makes sense that all of their anime would go onto the American NicoNico first. It'll probably be like that from now on sadly. Kadowaka usually has had a good relationship with Crunchy by giving them a few shows a season, so that hurts.

Kadokawa owns part of Dwango, the parent company of NicoNico, and as odd is it may seem Dwango owns part of Kadokawa.

Kadokawa has the bigger investment and owns a larger percentage of Dwango than Dwango owns of Kadokawa.

Ah yes, my bad. I mixed up the order in which their companies are related. But still it remains that Kadowaka will likely give NN preferential treatment in the future for simulcasts.

Sadly its the way things are likely to go from now they really added a decent boost to CR lineup each season so its hurts but at least we still get shows and I'm willing to wait the week since cruncyroll has alot better video quality 720p vs 360p and there player supports complete fullscreen other then the exclusive shows they have I'm going to watch them here on cr except for twin angels the comments on nico make the show more enjoyable to watch.

its also important to note that when crunchyroll licenses a show its always with a specific broadcaster and it isn't always the one that airs the episode first.

The original material is typically provided to the translator well before broadcast. This is how Funimation and later Anime News Network got in trouble for leaks of an episode of One Piece and Oreimo, respectively, before they were aired in Japan.
