Of the remaining series:
- Seitokai no Ichizon 2 - I had my doubts earlier in the season, but out of the remaining series I'd say it's the most likely option. Given the previous Kadokawa sequels that CR has simulcast I wouldn't be surprised if there was some kind of sequel clause in the contracts.
- Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo - CR still has time to announce it today before the "would be" simulcast time (it's Mediafactory so a 1.5 day delay). It doesn't necessarily have to be a sub-license, but it would be surprising if someone didn't pick it up. I wouldn't rule it out if it's not announced today either.
- Suki-tte Ii na yo.- Only chance is if it's a sub-license.
- Little Busters / JoJo - If they are licensed out I imagine that they would be bundled together. As for who has them (if anyone), I have no idea.


Since viz probably has jojo and the fact they probably won't get seitokai 2 it will probably be little busters and pet no kanajo if jojo wasn't packed with LB.

I assume the remaining 3 boxes in the lineup page would be only anime because of Michana's comment:


We're adding a NEW live action to our collection: My Little Nightmare. Don't worry, we'll have more anime title announcements this week so keep checking back!



Although, to be honest, I probably misinterpreted what she said. In any case, as her comment confirms, we'll see more announcements this week.

Its plural, so it implies at least two. And if they are following the pattern of previous seasons, the drama announcement won't "take away" any already-existing boxes, which would make it three or more anime announcements.

With Warner Brothers Japan given production credit for Little Busters! and JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, there's always the chance that they are a package deal. Warner Brothers isn't listed as part of the production for many TV series. One previous one was licensed by Sentai and streamed on Crunchyroll. Another was licensed by Viz and streamed on Hulu.

On the topic of Jojo's Bizzare Adventure it seems Viz may actually have it since a Neon Alley rep on ANN made an interesting comment.


Aww no fans for the new POT or JoJo eh? Either way, we're always looking for more shows to add each season. If those shows get dubs give us the heads up and we'll talk to FUNi, or Aniplex or who ever else owns them.

Given that new POT (a series licensed by CR) is mentioned in that same sentence, that seems a bit of a stretch to me.

Keep in mind that unless I'm seriously mistaken, Viz has never announced a simulcast late. Whether this is purposeful or simply due to luck, I don't know, but given they are the only company for which this is true, I suspect the former.


Perhaps it is worth noting that JoJo doesn't have its last OTA broadcast of the first episode in Japan until Wednesday, October 10 (U.S. time) on Chubu-Nippon Brodcasting, and the final airing occurs Friday, October 12 on the satellite channel BS11.

Question to those who know a lot more about this stuff then I do. Will CR pick up a series that already has started, maybe two or three weeks into the season? I am just wondering if I can start watching shows that CR didn't pick up but are already airing.

Well I'm pretty disappointed that FUNimation and VIZ grabbed all the good shows I'm looking forward too. Both are terrible when it comes to streaming and simulcasting. Crunchyroll really dropped the ball this season.

Yes, Crunchyroll has on quite a few occasions started late on simulcasting a series(last Fall had quite a few of these actually: Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere , Mashiroiro Symphony both started a month late. gdgd fairies had started six weeks late) and on a few occasions like with Cardfight Vanguard Season 2 got it way after it premiered.

So two or three latecasts would not be an abnormal thing. But Crunchyroll tends to catch up very quickly too.

There has been a slight update on the lineup page:

One "?" box is scheduled for an announcement on the 10th, the second "?" box is schedule for an announcement on the 11th, and the final remains "TBD".

I don't understand why TAN is getting these exclusives from Sentai. Are they shelling out giant cash-wads in order to force some actual traffic to their site?

I'm in no danger of cutting my Crunchy subscription, as I've got Medaka Box and Shin Sekai Yori that I'm excited about, and hopefully once I check out Magi and My Little Monster I'll like them.

I was really, really, really hoping Crunchy would get Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai. Also K, Robotics;Notes, and Onii-chan Dakedo Ai Sae Areba Kankeinai yo ne would have been really nice to stream through here.

Shouldn't 100,000 paid subscribers give you some serious clout, Crunchy?!?! Do you need to get into the distribution business to secure titles for streaming, now?

I'm a bit frustrated with all this. Hopefully a few more streams will come through Crunchyroll. They've got the best website and the largest viewer base, so why the hell can't they get the best shows?

It was supposed to be part of the 10th anniversary celebration of The Anime Network, so they were probably willing to spend a bit more than usual.

It could also be that they discovered that while concentrating on library titles and less expensive latecasts cut their expenses, that their revenue took an even bigger hit due to decreased traffic and subscriptions. They may have then decided the approach they used in summer 2011 (when they had 3 exclusive simulcasts) worked better.

There is little doubt that a home video license can still result in more money for a licensor. Even if Funimation and CR bid the same amount for a show, Funimation can dangle the "If the streaming numbers are good enough, we'll license it for home video" carrot.

At present, I expect it is difficult for CR alone to outbid Funimation for a show, unless Funimation really doesn't want it that badly, unless CR has a preferred relationship (as with TV Tokyo).

Thanks for the industry insights. I figured it was similar forces at work to what you mentioned.

Ah, first world problems, where your favourite site doesn't get ALL the shows you want, and the sites that do either are crappy and don't take you preferred form of payment, or are currently completely dysfunctional for Canadians (Damn you, Funimation!).

P.S. Many thanks, TheAncientOne for making & updating this fantastic resource thread for Fall 2012

It's been stated a number of times that CR really tries for everything. So a poll really won't affect anything. What we get is a matter of complex negotiations with the licensors.


Well I rather have quality over quantity. They should go after the shows that has the most potential in recruiting more subscribers because more revenue = more money to be put into acquiring popular shows or hiring staff/developers for some insane projects in the future.

Funimation's site really is gawdawful. The problems I am having now are not even Canada issues, others have them too with videos restarting over and over, making them unwatchable. All their advice is about reloading the page and deleting caches which is totally bogus tech support 101 garbage. It is embarrassing when pirate sites can stream better than a corporation with an IT department... It is truly unfortunate that creators allow Funimation to license their shows as they do a poor job. Too bad as they really do have a nice catalog.

Assuming Funimation can fix their video before my free trial expires in two weeks it would still suck as I would have to pay double, triple if I got TAN for their shows.Time for some mergers and acquisitions in the industry I say! Crunchyroll needs to buy them out and deep six their web sites, put their catalog and subscribers on here. I know... In my dreams but subscribers are the losers right now, pushing people to view in other ways.
