AKB0048's one week delay compared to the first showing in Japan seems to be hurting its views here. I seem to be the only one who has viewed it, at least the only one to rate and comment on it and it came out almost an hour ago... gotta fight for a closer simulcast and if you are watching it elsewhere, please watch it for 30s here to give it some proper views!


I also can imagine that those like me who don't want to use fansubs are waiting for the first season to be streamed legally. Somehow I still think Crunchyroll will announce that they have got it. Sentai has already indicated that they have both seasons so maybe Crunchyroll is waiting to see what TAN's schedule for streaming the first season is?

Since I am also legit only and prefer to watch high quality HD when available, I still haven't seen the first season either but honestly it is pretty straight forward show, not rocket science. I don't feel lost at all in AKB THE NEXT STAGE. Would still be nice if Crunchyroll got the earlier episodes.

I'll guess D) Chokkyuu Hyoudai Robot Anime

As expected:
http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-791105/new-winter-titles-straight-robot-anime



Updates to initial message:

Added information on Crunchyroll's announced simulcast of Straight Title Robot Anime (Chokkyuu Hyoudai Robot Anime).
Changed "Crunchyroll Simulcasts:" back to "Crunchyroll Announced Simulcasts:" (until after premiere of the above anime).


Anime on Demand watch report:

No signs of any pending start to their announced simulcasts of Maoyuu, Mondaiji-tachi ga Isekai kara Kuru Sou Desu yo?, and Student Council's Discretion. There have been no new posts on either their Twitter account or Facebook page since early January.

Frankly, I wouldn't be surprised if they called it quits after this season, which raises the question of what would happen with the titles they have licensed. In a perfect world, they would re-license them to CR to stream, but I won't be holding my breath for that to happen.

Doing it as a single package deal would cover the contract cost problem.

Its always been hard to see how Anime-On-Demand makes it without a deal for Funimation to pick up UK streaming rights along with their simulcast licensing and sublicense the rights to AoD.

While checking Nico Nico's streaming in Japan for this season, I noticed that perhaps the first time all of the titles they list are streamed by a U.S. company; no one or two exceptions as in past seasons.

No one yet. Zettai Karen Children was picked up by Sentai last January 30th so you would think they would get The Unlimited too but I don't know how well it sold.

The problem is that the main person who communicates to the public from AoD is Andrew Partridge, who has recently been working on establishing a new anime licensing company (Anime Limited). He's also the spokesperson for Kazé in the UK, as well as being the organiser of Scotland Loves Animation's annual film festival. So basically he probably just hasn't had the time to tell us what's going on. That doesn't make it any less frustrating, though.

It's been past the fourth week and usually Sentai would have there licenses start on Hulu. Did something happen? Are they not licensing stuff like they usually have been the last two years? Did the lawsuit get settled? Did they win or lose? Did they run out of money? Do they not have to license everything in sight any more? I wish I knew what was happening.

I don't think that's it - it shouldn't take a big time investment to mention the status of the three series that haven't started yet on Twitter or Facebook (or the actual site, but maybe that's too radical), really. Not that I have any better ideas as to why they haven't said anything...

Looking at the February schedule for TAN, I see that Cuticle Detective Inaba posted on the 4th, but has yet to appear on Hulu. Amnesia and Little Busters! are the only other two titles I see shared with CR (i.e, the ones that are normally posted to Hulu), but the first episodes of those don't appear until the 7th and 12th, respectively. Clicking through to their newsletter, it appears Hakkenden starts on the 10th.

I can't recall in the past if their was any delay between when these appeared on TAN and when they appeared on Hulu. As expected, TAN shows all episodes of these series will be available for free, so there is little reason for them not to appear on Hulu.

I mean the Kadokawa shows, for example usually they have an announcement for home video rights by now if it's Sentai, otherwise Crunchyroll would not be able to license them. It seems strange, is there a sea change in the relationship between Crunchyroll and Kadokawa on these type shows, going back to the old school relationship.

MAL describes it as follows:

Tenpo Suikoden NEO is based on the Japanese classic folktale "Tenpo Suikoden." It's about a long power struggle between two gangs in the 18th century.


But if you look on the official Facebook page they link to, you see this image:



So either we have yet another series that involves someone from the modern era traveling back through time, or it isn't set in the 18th century after all.

Crunchyroll added the first season of AKB0048 as a catalog title. Same regional availability as the second season.
http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2013/02/08-1/crunchyroll-adds-season-one-of-akb0048-to-anime-catalog

I have added it to my queue so it will get my views now. Watching Kawamori and Okada work together on this will be a pleasure.

I would vote for someone from the modern era traveling back through time. Countdown as far as I know still doesn't have that. I'll have to check the winter Moetron one to see if that has been added there.
