Crunchyroll should do something for its overseas fans who are not getting so many new shows. Many of us are paying customers too. May I suggest you make some classic anime titles available for us, at least?.

Seriously, do something about that moronic licensing. Last season was great. Now we people outside the US and Canada get next to nothing. Really, what are we paying for if we get no shows?!

Well, I wanted to bitch about it, but strangely it's available for me. And i don't remember to be living in Canada, United States or its territories. I just hope it's not same kind of error...

Crunchyroll forgot to configure the region restrictions. Quickly enjoy it while you can! It won't last long!

Despite incredibly low DVD sales, Deadman Wonderland wasn't a complete failure. Going on what figures are available, it still managed to give manga sales a sizeable boost:



Kaiji still managed to get a second season when it's DVD sales did not make the charts at all.

In this case, however, I could see how the manga sales remaining high might deter investing in another season, as the thinking might be, "It did its job, so we don't need another season". By contrast, if manga sales started to show a downward trend, they might be more apt to try another season as a booster shot.

I've managed to watch it too...must say, I won't be very upset once the region restriction is put in. It's interesting, but...

I watched the first 2 eps of "Horizon" and I have to say for all you subscribers outside of the US who aren't getting it.....if it's any consolation to you guys, you're really not missing out. Picture an anime show where the creators got together and said "hey, let's try to make the most awesome show ever by using every single cliche/trope/overused convention in the anime industry and just pasting them together with the least amount of effort or creativity." This is the kind of show you would end up with. But some people liked "Coyote Ragtime Show" too, so if you like that kind of stuff then you'd probably like this then.

Either way, I still have to say it seems so unfair to not at least let ppl watch and decide for themselves whether to watch it or not. This regional licensing thng needs to be streamlined and made more efficient somehow.

Though for the UK, last season sucked, and this season is much better, with 75%+ of the new series. And Oz/NZ normally get half the shows, and this time they get 2/3.

Yes, Crunchyroll has to work something out that makes it easier to sort out international streaming rights with the new more competitive streaming license market.

If the DVD sales sucked that badly, they might cut out the middleman and get the booster shot with a DVD as a manga cover disk.

Given that Guilty Crown is licensed by Funimation and provided by them to NicoNico.com, it is extremely unlikely that Crunchyroll could obtain it, (I'm talking winning the lottery unlikely).

Nico Nico has it in 720p with no commercials, so why not watch it there?:

This. I could barely sit through the first ep.
But yeah, it's nice when you can choose.
