Don't know if they have another announcement for today or if the next announcement is tomorrow. Yeah, my OCD is acting up again.

Since the news on the second went live at 2:45pm EDT, 11:45am PDT, assume that there is a third announcement unless 4 Pacific, 7 Eastern passes with no announcement.


I think it's safe to assume there will be no third announcement today then.

I wouldn't bet on it with money on the table, but safe or not, that's my assumption.

Also I just realized ~ with the cons next weekend, some licenses could be announced then, and if Crunchyroll gets sublicenses, they can't{*} announce in advance of the main license announcement. That could mean they have to stretch their announcements this week a bit, and then have a big finale on Monday/Tuesday.

{* In proper Japanese business etiquette, anyway, but probably their announcements have to be approved, so probably also legally.}

Not bad so far. Hoping for a lot of announcements by Thursday, (since a ton of shows are premiering then).

So, who agrees with me now? There are only 7 slots available and 6 slots are DEFINITE must gets but seem like it wont happen because of all the crap CR is wasting their time and money on... Not looking forward to ANY of these current announcements... My claim that this is the worst season ever still stands to me.

Pretty sure I'm not one of those, but seeing your post as it is, you'd probably be flamed less if you didn't come off as you do.

Anyways, so by the math and the politics you're introducing here, it seems what you are saying is that if CR gets half of the 6, they have your membership or members are going to leave in droves?

Not sure what you mean by crap. Different shows appeal to different people, not sure why anything should be dictated by anyone. Is crap just anything you aren't interested in?

Most complaining has been by members who, surprisingly, have been here long enough to know that CR seems to tends to announce the continuations, then in the order of the broadcast premieres, with the lighter stuff first then the more desired properties, due to the latter being licensed somewhat later. It's nearly always lackluster at the start (I find the lineup thin so far), and they still have 6 shows (by your count) to name.

Furthermore, most who have been here for years like yourself, know that CR doesn't get every show wanted by their members. Some of these shows do not seem even an option/available to them either, and I'm not entirely sure why you think CR has such god-like status (and if they did, agitating would not be wise to begin with, going up against a god royally sucks) such that what CR says the Japanese animation broadcasters listen, esp. on issues of licensing intellectual property CR does not own or create themselves.

They can't license what is not available to them by the Japanese property holders or what their budget does not make feasible. The anime industry hasn't been the sharpest tool in the shed when it comes to licensing and getting their product out there and still isn't, so knowing that, I hardly think how they handle international licensing (fractured, unavailable) would be any surprise at this point. Don't blame CR for every ill.

Rock Lee's show seems like it will give me a good laugh.

Well, you did ask who agrees with you:

(1) There are only 7 slots available.
I don't agree. We know that there are at least 7 slots available. There could be more. Heck, there could be 12 slots available, if some licensors are finalizing their contracts with an eye to an announcement at Anime Boston.

(2) 6 slots are DEFINITE must gets
I look at the countdown clock at Mandragon and I can't see anything like 6 "must gets" from unannounced series. OTOH, there's no accounting for tastes, so there's no real agreement or disagreement in that, just different tastes.

(3) it won't happen because of all the crap CR is wasting their time and money on
This indulges in the fantasy that when Crunchyroll licenses something you don't like, that makes it harder for Crunchyroll to license something you do like.

That's silly. No matter what anime you want them to sign, you lose nothing if there are ten or twenty series licensed that you think are crap. Just don't watch them. Problem solved.

The only reason to pretend that Crunchyroll picks and chooses with animes to license is because someone wants to make up a reason to whine about Crunchyroll licensing a series that somebody else likes more than the complainer does.

(4) My claim that this is the worst season ever still stands with me.

Obviously with Anime Boston coming up, there are going to be some series announced there. If Crunchyroll is sublicensing any of those, then that announcement has to wait until the main licensor announces. Since it doesn't look like Crunchyroll has made a single sublicense announcement yet, what we have seen so far are the series that the distributors passed on or decided to wait and see.

Anybody who decides what the shape of the season is going to be four days before a big announcement con is held is not forming a serious opinion ~ they are just being an attention seeker. So I guess you won.

Agila61 has already taken apart your arguments, but here goes:

1. There may be six boxes remaining right now but that doesn't mean that Crunchyroll couldn't announce 12 more to make it an even 30, as it has been hinted in the Premium Members forum. So with at least a week more of annoucements and two major anime conventions happening this weekend with some licensing annoucements(Sentai has a panel at AnimeBoston, it's 60 minutes long so you better bet they will announce at least one new license, if not two or three. And Crunchyroll tends to get most of the simulcasts that TAN gets so you may hear of a sublicense or two for a hot new show. Say, Accel World as a hypothetical example. Funimation, OTOH, has a 90 minute panel at AnimeBoston so they could announce four new simulcasts. Say, Kore Wa Zombie as a Funico exclusive. I can't speak to Sakura-con but I know Aniplex and Funimation will have a presence there. Aniplex also tends to sublicense simulcasts to Crunchyroll. ) Any complaints that Crunchyroll has a bad selection should wait until next week at the earliest.

2. Crunchyroll has been announcing their simulcasts close to the Japanese premiere this year. Yurumate3Dei premiered today, and Rock Lee premieres in about six hours. The more anticipated series have at least a day until they premiere. I am also thinking that tomorrow will have two announcements(they'll have at least, but I'm thinking two). I would have to guess that Lupin III and Medaka Box would be their next announcements, but they also might announce Shirokuma Cafe , Natsuiro Kiseki or even Kore wa Zombie Desu Ka? of the Dead (although the odds on that are not that great).

3. Crunchyroll bids on every anime that comes out. Every. Single. One. Whether or not the licensor agrees to it can be out of Crunchyroll's control. Some rightsholders are still stuck in the 90s way of doing things although this is starting to change. And just because Crunchyroll gets a Rock Lee and a Yurumates3Dei doesn't also mean that Crunchyroll doesn't have Saki: Achiga-Hen or Eureka 7 AO ready.

Nothing for me to look forward to this season. Not even the shows that are carrying over either. Hmm~ Let's just wait and see what the other shows are. Otherwise... well. Bye, I guess.

In all honestly without Beelzebub and Gintama on I am hoping for some good series to take their places but the only one theyve announced so far I'm actually looking forward to is Kimi to Boku 2 but I'll probably still watch em all.

I have NO INTEREST at ALL in Rock Lee. (I couldn't even make it past episode 22 of the ORIGINAL Naruto!) I may check out Yurumates down the road.
