Meanwhile, while people moan and cry for yet another series because the big titles are going to be announced toward the end of the announcement period ... one thing that's in short supply is all the moaning and crying because of titles that are announced but are not available in Argentina or Angola or Armenia or Azerbaijan ...

... the reason is that so far its Australia and New Zealand, 100%, UK and Ireland, 100%, the Netherlands, Denmark and the Norse countries, 91%, Portugal and Brazil, 91% for anime members, South Africa 82%, The Middle East, non-Francophone Europe, Turkey, Spanish America and Africa, 73% for anime members, Francophone Europe, R5 Asia and China, 64% for anime members, Southeast Asia and Korea, 55% for anime members.

I expect that is close to a high water, since once sublicenses get announced there will be at least a few "North America, Northern Europe and Oceania" style licenses ... but after a season where Southeast Asia got nothing but two shorties, its a big breakthrough on the region restrictions front.

I have to thank you for getting Polar Bear Cafe. I admit I only took an interest because of the voice cast, but that's enough...I mean, come on. Sakurai Takahiro, Fukuyama Jun, and Kamiya Hiroshi voicing a polar bear, a panda, and a penguin? How can anyone say this is not epic? xD

I will still wait, before buying premium again. In last season I bought 3 months ahead of announcements. And there was 0 (zero!!) shows available in my region except, two 5-minute shorts. Well, now it's look promising. Worldwide licenses is way to go...

...welp there are 4 shows left to announce...and sadly rocklee adventures was the only one that got a good chuckle from me


meh, not that many shows that have my attention this spring. I'll give Sengoku collection a shot, but I still have some hope the only one I want gets licensed.

Let's see Funimation licensed High School DxD, and is planning on doing a home video release of it. Funimation obviously outbid Crunchyroll, and Funimation never sublicenses to CR.

Milky Holmes 2 was a sequel to a series that was popular in Japan(the first season sold well), but bombed on Crunchyroll(it had the lowest streaming numbers of its season according to sources). Funico obviously outbid Crunchyroll. End of story.

Black Rock Shooter is a case where Funico outbid Crunchyroll to get it for a limited amount of time. It looks like Aniplex USA will license it, and maybe in 6 months, they'll sublicense it to Crunchyroll.

Kill Me Baby was a TBS series. Crunchyroll doesn't have the connections to TBS that Sentai has, and I think the only stuff that TBS has done that has been on Crunchyroll are Mooncake(one-shot live action movie) and Idolmaster(I forget where the @ goes) which was a delaycast(3 weeks behind I think it was).





Black Rock Shooter is most likely going to be licensed by Funimation, if it isn't already. I actually saw Black Rock Shooter on Funimation's website
http://www.funimation.com/black-rock-shooter They're planning on streaming/adding episode(s) every Friday @ 11am EST

Hmm so far not so thrilled with the line-up but then again the spring releases are not really......anyway....
Here is to hoping that CR is able to grab some big titles in the end like the new Eureka 7 or Accel World cause seriously those are probably some of the very few that may actually be good this season. And maybe a new horror anime since Another ended T_T pupuuu~

Unless Medaka Box shows up, I have no need for this premium membership.

*sigh* guys please get something I will actually WATCH plz. At least get Accel World! I already know Zombie 2 is impossible, CR is probably getting that one.
Or Medaka Box. Please.

Sincerely, me.

Accel World doesn't premiere until Friday, so CR still has two more days to announce it, assuming it isn't delayed. Given that it is a Sunrise series, that isn't a possibility that can be ruled out.

Last season's new series from Sunrise (Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou) wasn't simulcast at all, despite being on TV Tokyo. That may have been due to being licensed by NIS America. The two from Fall 2011 were nabbed by TAN, although CR did get to simulcast one on delay. Back in the summer of 2011, it was Sacred Seven, which was again delayed (by a week as I recall), but that was handled by Bandai.

Sengoku Collection sounds like it could be cute and interesting. So I will give that a try. The cafe one sounds kinda meh, but I'll watch a few episodes.

I must say this is the worse season I've seen since I started watch anime on Crunchyroll. There is maybe three shows I'll which are Ozma, Space Brothers, and Hiiro No Kakera. The other shows so far announced this season, I've got no interest in watching. I know there are five more slots to be announced so far. I hope they announce more shows that suit my tastes. Thank god I still have Hunter X Hunter, Fate Zero, Fairy Tail, The Knight in the Area, and Bodacious Pirates to watch.

Hm, not bad. I was thinking of checking out Sengoku Collection and polar bears could be cute. I'm really hoping that we'll get an announcement about lupin or media box tomorrow, and sankarea and acchi kocchi on thrusday.

since the zetman anime sucked im really hoping for a good action series and those two seem to fit the bill quite nicely or hell even accel world for this week.


Yeah, I wasn't exactly impressed with Zetman. I'll give it time though. I found I really dislike hulu's player (video smearing, no readily apparent short +-5-10 jump ability).
