If a company licences a series, would that include the coming series too? And if that's the case, is that why people are saying there won't be a season 2 (meaning there won't be a season 2 on CR)?

Yeah, well I'm glad I watched it as it came out. And if that happens to Steins Gate, then I'll make sure not to miss an episode. Haha! Like I ever would miss an episode!

Can't CR pay royalties to Funimation and call it a day? (I feel like a little kid who doesn't know anything about the world, so I give simple answers to complicated problems)


If a company licences a series it doesn't mean that they get the following series. Sometimes it does and most of the time the Japanese companies keep series within the same company because the company has built a fanbase for the series and it's easier to market a second, third, etc season to them.

The reason people are saying there won't be a second season is because apparently (and I don't have any sources for this) this series didn't do that well in Japan and it wouldn't be profitable for Kadokawa to make a second season just to make one.

CR could pay FUNimation to keep it up if FUNimation allowed outside sites to stream their content. But since they have their own streaming site it doesn't seem all that smart business-wise to let your merchandise get away from having your name on it once you can put it on it.

As for this series *shrug* it was entertaining even though the subbers took liberties with the language to make it more colloquially seem like a bunch of prisoners would talk. Not too big of a subtraction in my opinion, though it did get a bit excessive at times, it was just annoying to be translating the Japanese in my head and reading something different. I'm not going to say it was "Wow " material, but it was worth the watch through.

This series was great however it should have went a few episodes further. I think it would have made things more interesting. I enjoyed the first half more than the second half I have to admit.

Considering Funimation will be releasing this on DVD, this news is hardly surprising. I should try to watch this before it gets taken down. I need to decide if I want to buy it or not. Thanks for the warning Crunchy!

Sorry to hear any license runs out but I for one didn't like this anime but clearly lots of folks did. I'm sure it will start streaming over on Hulu since Funi did license it for DVD/BD release. Same will be the fate of Steins Gate once its 24eps runs out - now that one I will be marathoning before its pulled.

I suspect they will remove Steins; Gate soon afterwards too since its also a Funimation title. I don't mind since I can view it anytime on Funi's site here in a couple months.

It is pretty odd and a bit disappointing but the anime Oretachi ni tsubasa wa nai- We Without Wings is still on Crunchyroll and Funimation(on their website, on Youtube, and on Hulu) also happens to be streaming that series too. So it makes me wondering if there is another reason for the removal.

Deadman Wonderland is Kadokawa, while Oretachi ni tsubasa wa nai- We Without Wings is Marvelous Entertainment. Basically, it boils down to different licensing terms.

Kadokawa simulcasts have long been subject to removal after they end. Originally it was 30 days, but that did not seem to be strictly enforced since last year, and more recently it has been 90 days.
