So, EP6 was aired with 30 minutes delay on one channel, while having 1 week skip on the other channel. This is bad for people who paid and would want to watch their beloved show in the legit way.

Last time I checked, there's already a raw and subbed version out somewhere around the net. So, go find them as you will.

Whether this decision was originated from CR or Aniplex, it just dumb guys. If the episode was nationwide skip, I guessed I can live with it, but it's not. Now more people would not rely on CR anymore to watch their anime; they'd just go to find fansub version as they always get it like ~2-3 hours after it was first aired in Japan.

People are also posting comment here as well: http://www.crunchyroll.com/sword-art-online/discussions

I can wait a week. Anime is not the absolute core of my life where I am that desperate to chase down the episode. All in all, it is only a show.

anyone have an idea why it's not airing tomorrow on crunchyroll??

o.o the japanese website said it is airing on tv though

Per Des-kun in the Premium Members section of the forum:

I looked it up on another site and found that at least if they get episode 6 from Mainichi Broadcasting then it won't come out until the 18th. I'm guessing that's the issue here.

If you check the website he linked to, you'll see this delay is due to Olympics coverage, and that they will be airing episodes 7 & 8 together on August 25 to catch up.



So I don't really understand. It has been confirmed that the episode did air but only on a different station, while another station could not broadcast due to the Olympics. What confuses me is why is CR being forced to air at a later date due to only one channel on TV not being able to broadcast the episode?

I'm pretty sure the TV stations provide the raws for Crunchyroll. The contract may state that Crunchyroll cannot stream the show before a certain time each week or before the TV stream.
