Any chance Funi may offer up any of those six additionally to Hulu or CR? I really do not want to subcribe to Funi...

Looks like Funimation has thrown down the gauntlet and licensed the 3 of the BIGGEST shows this season for simulcast (which likely means we won't be seeing these on Crunchyroll):

~Psycho Pass
~Robotics;Notes
~Code Breaker

Funimation has also picked up:

~Jormungand Perfect Order
~Kamisama Kiss
~OniAi

Looks like I'll be giving my $6.95 to Funimation's Elite Subscription this month instead of Crunchyroll

Even though FUNImation really stepped up, it really is a shame that CR is the only one that provides 1080p between the two. I don't change CR for anything in the world (they did get BTOOOM! and Shin Sekai Yori), but this time FUNImation really got 3 of the big ones (considering they already had Jormungand). Hope this means more people will buy from them and they too will go 1080p or maybe PS3 app. Don' know how well that ROKU works. Anybody knows? Also, does HULU stream at the same time funimation oes? or one week after?

This may seem like CR is getting: Little Busters though, along with other great looking titles that are still left.

To Hulu: I would say chances are good, although they likely would be delayed (i.e., a week later).

To CR: About as much chance as winning the Powerball lottery jackpot.

It didn't surprise me at all that Funimation got those top 3 that you mentioned. Although one could argue that Crunchyroll got 3 of the Biggest shows this season too( BTOOOM , Magi, Blast of Tempest). As for me I am more annoyed that Funimation got OniAi but I've heard from people whose tastes are similar to mine that OniAi fails even at fanservice. I also wouldn't discount how huge it was that CR got more Gintama given it's popularity on sites like MAL.

The anime covered the manga pretty accurately aside from a few flaws/changes.
Here are some examples:


-Everyone's attitude is alot less grumpy.
-Medaka's "War God Mode" hair is the wrong color.
-Unzen's music room slaughter was toned down a bunch:

-They goofed up the Medaka vs Unzen fight a bit. (For example: In the manga Medaka never punches Unzen through the building with the first punch, and they overdramatized the shit out of how much damage the building took from Unzen's explosives.)

If you really like the series, then I wholeheartedly suggest that you read the manga.

You don't have to get a paid subscription. You only need a free one to see any of the M titles.
