Looks like we are getting NIS titles, but we already have four of them I think Natsume, Occult Academy, Working!, and I forgot the other one its about demon chicks and military men or something. xD My bet ToraDora is going to be announced.

Still hoping for more stuff outside of NIS titles like Kyo Kara Maoh or more Gundam. xD

Natsume and Occult Academy were on Crunchyroll long before NIS America licensed them since they were TV Tokyo shows. Working (or as it is known here in North America: Wagneria) was a show that Crunchyroll got the first season from NIS America but simulcasted the second season. Brave10 was also a simulcast that may have had some cooperation with NIS America.

I really have enjoyed watching the episodes of Anohana too. I would also love to see Toradora! here on Crunchyroll. It is a great romantic comedy series with great characters.

I suspect that due to what a few people posted, we are also getting a few more Sentai catalog titles too.

"Sorry, due to licensing limitations, videos are unavailable in your region." I guess I have to watch this show somewhere else.

As TAO says, if its says catalog title, assume its North America only. If only one of these five is available outside of North America, that would be better than their normal region rights for catalog titles.

And that would be more likely to be South Africa than UK/Eire or Australia/NZ. The reason is, even if a catalog title was originally acquired with English Language Country rights, if the US distributor has sublicensed to a UK distributor, that means that the Crunchyroll catalog sub-license is going to be locked out of the UK/Eire. Same with Australia/NZ if Madman has sub-licensed.

And outside of US, Canada, UK/Eire, Australia/NZ and South Africa, the odds are even lower. Its no accident that almost all of the catalog titles for Latin America are series that were simulcast to Latin America and just stayed around, because no North American distributor picked up the license.

Really, the best chances for additional catalog titles with broader rights is a package deal for out of license titles from before 2004, or else a package deal sub-licensing titles that Viki has picked up direct broad streaming rights.

Since this looks like a package deal from NIS America and possibly one additional catalog title, the odds are not good of South American rights at this point.

The thing about the "continuing" titles is that they have this habit of putting up new episodes each week. Otherwise they would be finished series. So while its not the best way to put it, "blatant lie" on that front is going a bit overboard.

And Crunchyroll is perfectly entitled to call a seasonal stream a simulcast if it goes up on Crunchyroll sometime during its schedule of premier broadcasts in different parts of Japan.

Even if only half of the new episodes are going up more than an hour after their premier free to air broadcast somewhere in Japan, I seriously doubt that a full half of the simulcasts are going up more than an hour after they have finished all of their premier broadcasts somewhere in Japan.

It would be nice if all simulcasts were an hour after they went to air anywhere in Japan, but people shouldn't whine that something "is not a simulcast" because its a day or two after a premier broadcast time that they saw on the Internet. Save the "latecast" label for things that are streamed after the series of broadcast premiers of that episode have finished.

Can anyone confirm that these are the same masters as the NIS release or are these different ones? (The original release had a lot of grain issues)

Any Nozomi title would make me very happy, because it would create the hope that they could someday get Utena, or Maria-sama ga Miteru, or Aria the Natural / Animation / Origination.

Good question. It seems likely that Crunchyroll is going to get the masters that NIS American worked with, but hopefully they were the masters that NIS America worked with for the DVD release, which ought to at least support a good 480p encode.

It can be unclear whether a Hulu stream that looks grainy is actually a bad master, or an effort to make a low bandwidth encode to boost earnings at Hulu. An R1 DVD distributor certainly has less incentive than Crunchyroll to put up the best quality encode possible, both because they are selling something that is lower quality than the best 480p encodes that Crunchyroll can stream, and because Hulu is likely deducting bandwidth costs from the ad revenues.

Why did you sign up for a premium rather than an anime membership? Is the one or two dramas to the UK worth the jump in price? It sounds like you are voluntarily subsidizing North American drama viewers, and then complaining about the anime, where you get a much, much better deal.

To see how the economics works out, look at how many series you get per pound at Anime on Demand and compare it to how many series you get per pound at Crunchyroll.

The North American subscription fees underwrite subtitling, mastering and contracting costs for all the anime simulcasts that are signed up, and so the UK gets two thirds of the simulcasts that Crunchyroll licenses for much less than it would cost subscribers for a UK-only site that had the financial clout to land the same number of series.

Yesterday's announcement was between 8 to 9 p.m EDT(or 5 and 6 PDT) so I imagine the next announcement could be up anytime between 6:45 p.m EDT(3:45 PDT) and 9 p.m EDT(6 p.m PDT)

There goes my chances of watching PH without getting the DVDs.....
But I'm glad that CR is supporting more NISA titles, which is one of my favorite game publishers =D
