You're welcome.

I expect this is their "do or die" season; either they will attract the eyeballs they need to move forward, or they'll be out of the simulcast business by this time next year.


Oh, this is there only simulcast for which the time is currently known: 6 PM GMT on Wednesdays, starting on October 10. I suspect the reason this is an exception is that I believe the simulcast time was set by Aniplex.

But look it on the bright side, at least you in Spain have a much much bigger Manga/Anime industry that we have here in Mexico. At this point, Crunchyroll is the only option to watch Anime legally here (there's one channel that's broadcasting 1 or 2 Anime episodes per week as well I guess... Majutsushi Orphen being one of them). On the manga side, we don't have any legal option remaining.


On the anime side in Spain it's not so well. For example, last year, LUK international bought the rights to "REBORN!", but then no Spanish TV channel wanted it, so it was never aired or released in any way, and Spain doesn't have any online TV show on demand service (and the few who tried went out of business very quickly) so it has been lost forever.

There used to be a TV channel ten years ago called Buzz that showed lots of anime, and it's the reason I began to like anime, but went out of business about 5 years ago, and fused with another channel, and in the present it's exclusively an horror and porn channel. There's also the Spanish version of Animax which was originally supposed to be an anime channel but they haven't put any new anime since 2 or 3 years ago apart from reruns, and now mostly shows Spanish "comedies" (Blargh) and American live-action shows for youth audiences.

In other words, Spanish TV channels think anime won't give profit, so unless it's Pokémon or Doraemon (they've been airing and rerunning them for decades) they won't show it.

Yeah i'm surprised they're struggling so much they are owned by Kaze who are a pretty big distributor here in Europe mostly they give the UK distribution rights too Manga though those two have some deal going on. They didn't do themselves much favours by going silent on their website though i actually tweeted to them and they did reply but not posting an update on a website since feburary is no way too get people to pay for your service for sure. Plus they failed too upload all of Lagrange S2, i want them too do well but i don't have a good feeling about it.

Basically i think Viz and Funnimation need to start catering too a bigger audience around the world it's hard too get anime on TV in the UK so i think if CR can get World distribution rights i'm pretty sure companies as big as Viz or Funnimation can do it, i think it's plain laziness on their part honestly.

But don't get me wrong i like Crunchyroll the service is fantastic but i'm not totally against Dubs infact i prefer some and i wish their where legal means too see the best english dubs that's all Neon Alley is an awesome idea but i'm not holding my breath for a worldwide launch...

Cool, wanted to see Magi, and still one more day of announcements with two slots to fill. Best guess is that one will be Psycho-Pass, which as Production IG's big series for the season ought to be a prestige title. But the other...well, I have my hopes, but i doubt anyone else wants to see them....

Check OP's location: Finland. Magi will not be shown there, not licensed for Scandinavia.
Girls Und Panzer will be shown in Scandinavian however.

I wouldn't bet on CR only having only two more slots to fill, despite what the lineup page shows at the moment. They could very easily add another box with the next announcement. After all, that is something they have done in past seasons, and for those that haven't noticed, they have more boxes in the lower section now than they did on day one.


I wouldn't be surprised if To Love Ru Darkness was announced as a simulcast today.

My reasoning: All of the simulcasts Anime on Demand have announced are also been announced as simulcasts by a company in the United States, save this one. Three of those have been licensed by Sentai, and are TAN exclusive simulcasts in North America. It would also seem a natural for Sentai to license Darkness, given that they have the previous two series, but they have made no announcement. It also premieres tomorrow, which means time is running out to at least announce it before it premieres.

Another extremely likely CR simulcast, but not one I expect to be announced today is Medaka Box Abnormal. We already know Sentai licensed this, but TAN will not be streaming it until November. There would be little reason for that delay unless it is due to CR having an exclusive for the first month. It also matches up with what they will be doing for 3 other Sentai titles which have already been announced as CR simulcasts.

EDIT:

Well, I was right about To Love Ru Darkness being licensed by Sentai, and being announced as a simulcast today:

While I was right about Medaka Box Abnormal being a CR simulcast, I was wrong about them not announcing it today:

Good point. I'll keep my fingers crossed for my more obscure wishes then.

Well unless crunchyroll bothers to find a license for over 60% of the animes on here which im unable to watch just because I live in a country that is obviously more backward than places like South Africa,(because they have access to things we don't), then I guess my subscription ship is going to be taken elsewhere to other sites who actually make shows available.I live in Australia, copyright laws don't mean shit to me based on the fact we can go bankrupt and not bother with the fine if it comes to us being taken to court. America's SOPA laws as far as I'm concerned don't mean a pinch of piss, but I continue to pay for a service, because I feel supporting artists and the industry is the right thing to do, and without people who pay, the industry would not have money to continue. I can torrent or stream or download 100% of the shows you don't have here(safely without virus or need for virus protection), on or from sites which are free( isn't rocket science even a child can do it), and bypass all the crap and keep the money in my pocket and let other people keep paying. But I don't.
That being said if these companies which are so worried about their material being copyrighted don't make a effort to make it available, then my opinion is they can't complain when we give up bothering doing the right thing and give up and torrent them or stream. High quality isn't enough to make me pay for a service, you could have bad quality files as long as you had more variety and I would still be willing to pay. Hell I stream most shows here at 480p because even with cable internet and paying, I do not get decent data transfer from crunchy roll. (I can force anywhere up to 6mb/s, yet can't get faster than 256kb/s half the time off crunchy roll or get freezes or it cuts right to the end)
Point is, we pay for a service, and are from a country which is by no means backdated or out of date with it's technology, yet your company and the companies who license the animes treat us as if we are second rate and only worth half the effort.. For instance you have half of a company like gonzo's anime's available, then then the other half nothing, not even preview episodes.
Does it make sense to give those in countries where they are willing( and have a dollar floating on the world share market that is higher than the US dollar) less of a service. Due to laziness of staff or whatever, the main reason companies such as yourself in the end die out and lose customers in countries such as this, is because you don't market or make a effort to appease or even make the market feel like they are equal with the other countries you service. What do you think happens to your word of mouth marketing? What happens in forums and posts? Everyone who asks me where I watch my shows I tell them, but I also tell them don't bother paying for it, because they only have half the shows you want to watch, and the half thats left, are probably censored in a way that it isn't even worth bothering with them. I then proceed to tell them the names of sites which stream for free or download for free, all because in all seriousness, you do nothing to make me want to tell them this site is worth paying for.
I might sound like I'm a dick or acting like a Miser of Jew and wanting every penny to count, but it's the principle of my displeasure, you don't even bother to make the new shows available as is evident with this new show Magi.
" From the same people that brought you Blue Exorcist, Durarara, and Sword Art Online, brings you another great hit this fall season on Crunchyroll with the addition of: Magi!"
Explain how sword art online and durarara are available to me( being from same company) but blue exorcist and magi are not? This is what i'm trying to point out if you still didn't get it.
If your wondering why this is so long I have worded this so even the stupidest of your employees who may or may not read this, understand that your company and the money you receive off your customers, doesn't necessarily belong to you, and can be given to any other company offering the same service( or better). It is getting to a stage where it isn't going to be worth paying you, for a service which all i'm getting in reality, is 1-2 new updated episodes of shows each day ( which in reality are slower to come out than allot of even the free sites links).

In the press release Hideki Goto, the president of Animation Business of Aniplex of America, says:

We're looking forward to utilize digital media distribution in showcasing Magi to as many fans as possible.

That's awesome! But they really should consider including some more regions then.


Girls and panzer looks a bit weird but I'll see how it turns out.

Thanks for adding these titles Crunchyroll!

Bare feet then. Close enough.

...I'm not sure about your post, though.
