Yes, finally! I can watch Nisemonogatari after I finish Bakemonogatari. For a moment, I thought I might have to dig up fansubs or something.

Thanks so very much for Bakemonogateri . I do have a question though: will we get all 15 episodes or just the first 12 as those were the broadcasted episodes? I appreciate that CR will be streaming it, I just hope that it's complete.


Since it is only being released in in US/Canada, I'm guessing that CR got it from Aniplex, who will be having a North American Blu-Ray release with all 15 in November. So it seems logical that they'd license all 15. If not, it doesn't really bother me, because I already have the blu-ray pre-ordered. I'd be really surprised if Aniplex didn't license all of them -- but either way, It's a great pick-up for CR, and I can't wait to re-watch what is probably my favorite series.

Keep in mind that with Oreimo, CR (and Hulu and Crackle) only got the 12 episodes that aired.


Speaking of 15 episodes, I recently started watching Saki: Achiga-hen - Episode of Side-A on CR, and it irritates me that MAL lists 15 episodes, making it impossible to mark as complete (at least without entering a false episode count).

That's a good point, but Aniplex USA's release of Oreimo lists the series as 12 episodes and 4 "OVA's," whereas Bakemonogatari's release lists 15 "episodes." My guess is that CR doesn't typically license OVA's because they pretty much qualify as "extra" material rather than a bonafide entry in the series. The last three episodes of Bakemonogatari are considered part of the story, and the fact that Aniplex lists the last three as "episodes" suggests that they think so too. Plus, it would really suck for the license to end in the middle of an arc, but that's just wishful thinking on my part.

Although it's not incomprehensible for CR to only get twelve, it does seem unlikely considering Aniplex's release info for the Blu-Ray. But, it is also true that I have no hard information from CR or Aniplex on the matter, so I'm basically just talking out of my ass anyway.

Awesome, I had already searched for bakemono elsewhere to learn the story, but it's great that you guys have added it.

I'm happy that Crunchy is picking up older titles to fill out the library even more. I just wish that more shows could be picked up outside of the USA and Canada. I'm really happy you guys picked up the first season of Moyashimon but it is frustrating paying the same price and getting nowhere near the same amount of content.

You're going to have to wait 15 weeks to see it all through. CR thinks they're hipsters following TV scheduling programming. Should just release them all at once and watch your members run around in joy.

Crunchyroll did the same thing with Madoka. And it's not like TV programming. You can watch the episodes as they come out anytime that you want as long as they are available. Crunchyroll is better in that regard than TV or VOD(Video On Demand) since the content is available much longer. Also since I am a premium member, no commercials.

I don't mind Crunchyroll treating it like a simulcast with one new episode a week. And given Bakemonogateri dialogue-heavy nature, it would take some time to subtitle one episode so I'd rather get 1 episode a week at a time than wait 3 months for all of them.
