Is the fact that the future Japanese home video release of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure will have English subtitles likely to influence whether or not the series is simulcast, or otherwise licensed? Intuitively, I would think that they intend to reach English speaking markets themselves, and that the they would be less likely to license to an international distributor. But I'm not familiar with the simulcast and licensing results for past series with similar circumstances.


Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere has english subtitles on their blu rays both seasons, but Sentai is releasing a dub and blu rays next month a year after it aired in Japan.

A-1 is committed to complete 12 ep. but, it will be how serious fans are. if it become very popular, than it will be 26. if first 5 ep is not doing so well in rates, then 12-13ep.

I assume you are referring to Magi, since their only other anime for this season that airs at a time when ratings would matter is Chou Soku Henkei Gyrozetter.

Am I correct?

If they are waiting until episode 5 to decide whether to commit to a second cour, then it seems unlikely the second cour would immediately follow the first.

Magi is most likely 26 eps, while chances are that Gyrozetter is 50+.

I'd like to know where that information is coming from because it sounds very fake to me. It's already known from some interviews and the main promotional art their covering up to the end of one of the major arcs in the manga which with regular pacing could take up to 3 cours to do so the idea that they'd try to do it in 1 is ridiculous, and with the timeslot it's in the show would need a 24-26 episode bare minimum as that's a slot meant for titles that companies want to be promoted heavily, and a daytime slot at that. There's no way it would be in that timeslot if Aniplex didn't have faith it would do well, so it's definently at a 2 cour minimum.

Your question would be better addressed directly to caim5009zpxi. At this point I am still attempting to determine which series they were referring to.

I think too many people expect when they click the "reply" button that their message will somehow be linked to the message they replied to.

They finally updated the lineup page. 5 boxes right now, with two announcements for tomorrow.

Interesting that they added Ixion Saga DT to the lineup page, but it still didn't get a Site News topic. It is the only one missing a simulcast date and time, however, so perhaps they are trying to keep it low key.



It has a Site News topic, and the availability continues a great TV Tokyo trend from the spring too.


Ixion Saga DT will start on Sunday, October 7th at 10am PDT worldwide except Japan for premium members. Free members have access in the USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Denmark, Finland, Netherlands, Norway, and Sweden.


Bolded for emphasis. I am hopeful that more Japanese licensors will follow that trend with direct CR acquisitions.

EDIT: And from this news, I assume that niconico is officially out of the simulcasting game(for at least a while)
http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2012-10-02/english-niconico.com-to-retire-re-open-under-main-site-on-october-17

One of these days, I really hope that Funimation just decides to let Crunchyroll handle their simulcasts. They are in every way inferior to Crunchyroll when it comes to simulcasting, and it is irritating that essentially I have to blind buy some anime from Funi because I don't like how they set up their Android app and I just can't bring myself to get Hulu + because I hate paying for a subscription and still getting ads!

The Site News topic was added an hour ago (about 5 hours after my post), apparently around the same time they updated the news article with the simulcast time and availability information.

I'm expecting CR will announce at least one title before the day is out, however, so I plan on holding off on updating the initial message until later.

Wow, that's really old school. They used to do that a lot in the 90's and early 00's, but since ad revenues dropped away and they became so dependent on home video sales, its become a lot more common to commit to a specific run, and then if its successful commit to another run ... normally one season on, one season off or two seasons on, two seasons off.

Lineup page says two more today. Noon PT (3pm ET) and 3pm PT (6pm ET) would follow a common pattern for some 3 announcement days in the past.

The Anime Network has picked up Regardless of My Adolescent Delusions of Grandeur, I Want a Date!, Busou Shinki, and Hidamari Sketch x Honeycomb. The wording of the announcement implies that in North America, these shows will be exclusively simulcasted by TAN.

Ugh. Crunchyroll, I don't give a damn who you need to bribe, seduce, or kill, but please find a way to wrest control of TBS titles from Sentai/TheAnimeNetwork. Appears there's no chances of us getting Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai! or Hidamari Sketch x Honeycomb or any other TBS titles now. This is awful.

Technically, Sentai and TAN are different companies. Sentai licenses shows and one of the sites that they often offer content to is The Anime Network, which shows content but doesn't license them. It could be that TAN gets them exclusively for a while, and then maybe Crunchyroll will get them later.

Of course, that being said, perhaps the four TBD boxes are Girls und Panzer , To Love-Ru Darkness, Medaka Box Abnormal and Say "I Love You"

Technically. But ADV always liked "technically" being lots of different companies. Practically speaking there's an obvious working connection, even if they engage with different partners. But the point still stands that something needs to be done to break into TBS' exclusive relationship, because those (with few, if any, exceptions) don't seem to go out to said partners. And most importantly, because CR is the only simulcast service that doesn't leave me feeling feel like eating needles would have been a more enjoyable use of my time. I refuse to use any of the others anymore.

Even if they did, delaycasts are pretty worthless to me. I don't think I've ever waited around for a stream that was more than ~5 days late, except for a few shows I didn't particularly care about (and thus didn't care about watching in a timely manner). I very much do care about Chuunibyou and Hidamari though.
