A lot of the summer simulcast series are wrapping up and the Fall series in Japan are starting in the next couple of weeks. Are you going to have new simulcasts?

As you've been a member since 2008, you should know that with one exception, Crunchyroll has always announced the simulcasts rather close to the time they start.

Two shows have already premiered, but Crunchyroll rarely gets any of these "early" series (i.e., series premiering in June in the Summer, September in the Fall, or December in the Winter). The are certain to get Shinryaku!? Ika Musume (Squid Girl 2), which premieres Tuesday, September 27 at 2 AM in Japan (1 PM EDT Monday, September 26 in the United States).

In fact, the page for Squid Girl 2 briefly leaked, albeit with an obviously incorrect simulcast time. (Crunchyroll isn't going to simulcast a series almost a full day before it airs in Japan). It airs in the same time slot on TV Tokyo as YuruYuri did, so it would seem logical for it to have the same simulcast time as that series, but as llamaben pointed out in the Fall 2011 anime topic, the simulcast of the original series was 3 days after the first airing in Japan, so that is not assured.

At this point, only one simulcast has been announced with premier time and date by anyone. (Funimation announced a simulcast of the new Last Exile series back in the Summer, but of course gave no start date or time).


The short version: Expect at least one simulcast to be announced next week (likely before Monday), and the remainder the following week.
