So what are SAO's territories? are they the same as the other sentai sub licenses or...?


I don't think they've announced it officially but the region restrictions are:
America (North, Central and South), UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa.

Ah well...dam* guess it might not be a sentai sub license like the others since demark and all those are missing.

While one might have expected that they would get Tanken Driland as it is a TV Tokyo, there certainly have been TV Tokyo series before they didn't get (i.e., Aquarion Evol). Toei Animation being the studio had it on my "maybe not" list from the start.

If one discounts the two TBS series, that leaves only Dog Days', Moyashimon Returns and Joshiraku.

Joshiraku seems to be an odd omission, as it appears to be handled by Starchild/King Records, and is being simulcast in Japan by niconico.jp.

FYI, Ebi-ten (which appears to be handled by Kadokawa) is also to be simulcast in Japan by niconico.jp, and any series simulcast there has very high odds of being simulcast by some company in the United States. By contrast, they are not streaming either Dog Days or either of the noitaminA series.


All things considered, Ebi-ten or Joshiraku seem the most likely candidates.

I should note, however, that CR has yet to pull out an "I didn't expect that" license yet this season (although getting the second Cardfight! series a season after it started was something of a surprise), so I am hoping they will pull one off by getting Dog Days'.


- Aquarion EVOL was also Mediafactory. I agree with what you've said about Toei, but I still think this is a likely simulcast (with Toei involved it could easily be delayed).
- You can't discount the TBS series now that most simulcasts are sub licenses. If Funimation can get them on a week delay (Sankarea), I don't see why Sentai/CR couldn't.
- The only Stardchild/King Records simulcasts since mid 2010 have been sub licenses, and quite frankly I don't think Sentai would want Joshiraku.

A better example regarding TBS series would have been IS: Infinite Stratos, since it was simulcast by TAN. Even taking that into account, however, there remains a strong precedent that TBS series are more often not simulcast.

As you may recall, Sentai licensed another TBS series (Yumekui Merry) that same season, and not only was it not simulcast, it has yet to even be streamed (which is unusual for a Sentai license).

That really has little to do with the topic at hand, I just wanted to bring it up because that fact really irritates me.

Based on just the past year, the odds of a specific TBS series being simulcast by any U.S. company, much less CR, have been about 1 in 3. (FTR, I don't count The Idolm@ster as a simulcast, nor do I include a short special like Kämpfer für die Liebe as a series).


Regarding the Sentai co-op licenses with CR, it seems a lot like whatever this arrangement is (which is evident, but has never been formally acknowledged), the titles seem to be of such low risk to Sentai that they will pick up almost anything. The leads me to believe that if CR doesn't get the series that some other factor was at work.

I cant figure out what forum is best to ask this question, since I havent been on this site for awhile, but does anybody know where the thread is that contains all the summer 2012 anime threads within it?

Reason is because I think I see some anime out there that dont have a thread up to discuss them on this site here yet, but I dont want to make a thread if somebody else has. Anyways, thanks

And Yuru Yuri got a 2nd season, I am happy

http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-717285/general-anime-discussion-thread

The first post always contains the current season threads albeit not all of them. I may have missed a few but I'm going through the forums to double check what I've missed.

I think I got all of the current threads so far but I'm not entirely positive. I'm doing a double check right now.

For the fun of it, I'll throw out a theory on simulcasting TBS series (though maybe this will have been obvious for people who are not me). Looking back at full-length (runtime and episodes) series from 2011 on, it seems that the series that were simulcasts were based on Media Factory or Kodansha published source material (and have Media Factory or Kodansha respectively listed under "Production" on ANN, which I'm assuming means they were on the production committee). So I would guess that Media Factory/Kodansha retains simulcast rights in these cases and is more amenable to simulcasting. The exception to my theory is Mayo Chiki!. The other series outside of my theory is IDOLM@STER, which was "simulcast" I’m assuming due to Aniplex's production involvement.

Series (source material publisher)
Simulcast: Infinite Stratos (Media Factory), Aria the Scarlet Ammo (Media Factory), IDOLM@STER (n/a), Haganai (Media Factory), Sankarea (Kodansha)
Not Simulcast: Dream Eater Merry (Houbunsha), Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko (ASCII Media Works), Mayo Chiki! (Media Factory), Baby Please Kill Me! (Houbunsha), Amagami SS+ (Houbunsha), Acchi Kocchi (Houbunsha)

The measure of a good theory is its predictive power; and I'd rate my theory as not very helpful for this season. Looking at the two TBS series this season: Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate's manga is published by ASCII Media Works, but ANN also gives Aniplex (and not TBS) in production. That may mean it could fall under the same situation as IDOLM@STER but otherwise wouldn’t be likely. Now for My little sister is among them!, Media Factory did publish the manga and LN so I would say that it was likely; except that ANN lists Media Factory as “Production Cooperation” and I’m not sure if that is significantly different when it was listed as “Production” for all the other series. I am also a little afraid that I’m basing this on incomplete or inaccurate information from ANN for these series.

It is a little pointless if I can’t predict anything, but I have convinced myself there’s a pattern in the history. And it’s fun to come up with theories.

Although there still has been no announcement as of this time, Viz has made episode 1 of the second season of Lagrange available on their website and at Hulu. Please note that neither site designates this as season 2. The new episodes begin with episode 13.

I think it bears further consideration, since it at least gives some explanation for the exceptions.

One item to note about the titles with a Media Factory origination: All except Infinite Stratos were simulcast by Funimation, which unlike CR does pick and chose its simulcasts. Mayo Chiki fell into the period before the beginning of the apparent CR/Sentai cooperation on titles (fall 2011). It is perhaps also notable that Haganai was announced as a simulcast by NicoNico.com, but never even streamed by them, only by Funimation (and was rather late to start, like Sankarea).

One other title to add to the "was simulcast" list is Maria†Holic: Alive (I forgot it before, as well), which was another TAN simulcast, and another title that originated from a Media Factory publication.



Updates to initial message:

Added Lagrange - The Flower of Rin-ne (Rinne no Lagrange) to "Other current simulcasts"
Updated availability for Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse, The Ambition of Oda Nobuna (Oda Nobuna no Yabou), Sword Art Online and YuruYuri Season 2 (Yuruyuri♪♪)
Moved Kokoro Connect, Sword Art Online, and The Ambition of Oda Nobuna (Oda Nobuna no Yabou) to "Current Crunchyroll simulcasts" section

For the main post:

- Humanity has Declined (Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita) link is broken.
- Humanity has Declined regions are currently set to United States, Canada, United Kingdom and Ireland (still not finalised though since the regions haven't been announced).

- Sword Art Online regions confirmed in the announcement thread so you can remove "(per this message)".
- You missed Central America for Sword Art Online.

I was listing just series with (first) broadcast by TBS (excluding 2 MBS/TBS broadcast series). Maria†Holic: Alive was a TV Tokyo broadcast. Outside of TBS broadcast series, there are examples of Media Factory series that went to Funi and also those that were simulcast (or not) elsewhere. I do agree that Media Factory and Funi seem to have a friendly relationship.

Corrections have been made.

CR had changed the link for Humanity has Declined (Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita), and when I changed it, it ended up with an extra "h" at the beginning.

Regarding Sword Art Online, technically Central America is part of North America, but I have now changed it to how CR lists it. I also noted they had 3 other series (Campione!, Kokoro Connect, and Natsuyuki Rendezvous) listed in a similar manner, so I changed those as well. (Their information on their regions was originally as listed in the news post).

My mistake. For some reason I was remembering that it was a TBS series, but apparently I had it confused with SHAFT series (another group that has a precedence of being less likely to be simulcast). That's what I get for not double checking before I post.

Yeah, I'm a bit disappointed that this is the last choice to wrap up this season's selections. I haven't seen the previous two seasons, so I really had hoped something else would be picked up, like Moyashimon.

Anyway, plenty of other people seem to be happy with the choice, so I'm glad that CR is trying to create a diverse lineup.

Time to get cracking on watching those shows!

Same regions as SAO that defenitly increases the chances of SAO being a sub license.
@deadpanitto this is a prequel so you can watch it with no previous knowledge to the franchice also they still have another one left.
