There's a new one. Has Turkey been counted as part of the Middle East? If they've been counted as part of Europe, then this would seem like their first license except for "All Europe" ones.


turkey is counted as a part of europe in general (for example on itunes store). but here on cr it's counted as part of the middle east. so we have all the middle east titles (most of them are from kadokawa). but these are the first titles that have been licenced in our country independent from middle east. that's why i'm so suprised, i had no hope after kadokawa has stopped giving licence rights to cr.

if you are wondering, in political matters turkey is counted as part of both europe and middle east, so it's very troubling for us.

Thanks for the info, I'll correct my spreadsheet.

Like I said, its vague in terms of DVD rights, because R2 includes both Europe and the Middle East (Blu Ray continues that and includes Africa in the same region, since there are only three BD regions) ~ and so while the dominance of physical media in most regions in international anime licensing means that the DVD regions tend to lay down the general boundaries, the boundary between "Europe" and "Middle East" is based on however the Japanese licensor has it organized for their own purposes.

As you say, most of the "South America, Middle East and Africa" licenses are Kadokawa, so its probably due to the way they organize their regional license boundaries.


but these are the first titles that have been licenced in our country independent from middle east. that's why i'm so suprised, i had no hope after kadokawa has stopped giving licence rights to cr.

But those titles are why Crunchyroll could get these licenses. When hopeful licensees bid for rights from the Japanese rights owners, they set out what Minimum Guarantee royalty payment they can make ~ first, that is paid up-front, and second, the rights owners keeps that even if the actual royalties generated are lower than that.

For Crunchyroll to include in incremental Minimum Guarantee for Turkey, they need an idea of how many views they are going to get ~ and also what the streaming ad revenue is like to know whether the free ad-streams are going to have to be subsidized out of the premium views. The fact that Turkey was included in those Kadokawa "Middle East" licenses is where they got the information that let them include an additional Minimum Guarantee for adding Turkey to the license.

Given the pattern of the license ~ whole regions, and then individual European countries ~ It wouldn't actually be surprising if those are from original licensors that classify Turkey as part of the European license region.


if you are wondering, in political matters turkey is counted as part of both europe and middle east, so it's very troubling for us.
Yeah, I've been following the on-again off-again efforts of Turkey to join the EU.

Yay, more Natsume Yuujinchou! We just started watching that in our anime club (powered by Crunchyroll). So by the time we finish the third series, this one should be all done.

Mooncake looks really good. I'll have to watch that.

Congrats to fans of PoT. For me to enjoy anime, minimally, there have to be characters I can relate to, or at least one, and there has to be art I like. Prince of Tennis fails both of these for me. If you haven't watched it, give it a try and see if it's for you! I'd rather watch paint dry.

Whats with mixing the drama shows with the anime? How about separating them? I hope them boxes are all anime and not some poorly acted corny Asian drama show.

If CR DIDN'T get Natsume 4 that would've been surprising (and sad).
Didn't think CR would get Shin POT but bloody awesome that CR did get it!

Looking forward to seeing what else of the WInter new anime's CR snagged.
