Why is there an episode one then it jumps to four, I am trying to watch it on the iPad. If I could get some help that would be epic.

You shouldn't put episodes 4+ up if you've not made 2 & 3 available.
1) It saves people asking the OP's question over & over.
2) It stops people from accidentally spoiling the episodes.

Why would you want to spoil a series like that?
With all the people asking about the other eps etc I would beg to differ that the "rest of the world" were happy with the release 'schedule' of this series.

Had you considered that some people resort to watching fansubs if CR doesn't have a series right away, and would have already seen episodes 1 - 3? If CR had waited until 2 & 3 were available to post episode 4, those people would have also watched it at a fansub site rather than here.

Personally, I wait for legit releases, but I am well aware that a lot of people don't.


If someone is "accidentally spoiling" themselves, they need to brush up on personal responsibility.

The bug here is that the apps don't say episodes two and three are delayed. The web page does but Android does not (haven't tried my wifes iPhone). Does the iOS app autoplay the next episode? The old Android app does not.

I only watch legit now so I have not seen the show elsewhere but found that the preview of episode two at the end of the first one combined with the recap at the start of the fourth one meant I wasn't lost. I will rewatch four after three is released. I was happy not to wait for it.

Edit: Often I read ahead with the manga or novels of a series so I know what happens in the anime already. I still enjoy watching it! I hate suspense so I read it or watch it as soon as I can legally do so here or buying it from Japan with express DHL shipping.

If that was the case then they probably wouldn't have came back to CR to watch episode 4. You do have a valid point though.

The 'accidental spoiling' is more to do with the auto-play than anything else. I'm sure most people would notice after a couple of minutes or less that it wasn't the correct episode (& that will still spoil it somewhat).

My main point is that there should be consistency. I don't really understand why episode 4 was finished before 2 & 3 were anyway, surely they should prioritise subbing etc of episode 2, then 3, and then episode 4.

It is unusual, but CR can't even begin to sub an episode if it is not available to them. The contract no doubt specified that episodes were to be delivered to CR x amount of time before airing, so to comply with those terms, the licensor had to deliver current episodes. The same stipulation would not have applied, however, to episodes already aired.

As to why the licensor didn't have episodes 2 & 3 available at the same time as episode 1, that we will likely never know. Someone back in Japan could have misplaced the masters for those episodes.
