According to this, Girls und Panzer hit a production delay and next week will air an "Episode 5.5". I assume this will be some sort of recap, or tank introduction or whatnot. This means the rest of the episodes will be delayed a week.

This I can live with. However, the last episode will presumably now be streamed in Japan, not aired on television, because another show will be starting in the week where the last episode should air.

Here's the all-important question for CR representatives: Will CR get the rights to stream this episode for us? The only fansub option is absolutely terrible, so I want this on CR.

Can anyone from CR shed light on this? I know you might not have an answer immediately but I'm sure you'd like to find out ASAP as well.

I doubt this. If not here, the show can be viewed in different places.

You doubt what, specifically? That they will or that they won't simulcast the episode?

And yes of course it can be "viewed other places" but that's not the point.

Tanks, er, Thanks for the info!
I'm loving G&P! The more the merrier!

What's wrong with "the fansubs"? Isn't CR using [commie] subs?

I'm seeing 4 other subs too! They can't ALL be bad!

I'm pretty sure it's the other way around, with commie using CR's subs + correcting any mistakes CR may have made (or making it worse in some cases)

I think ^ was in their About Us section. Could be wrong since I've been to their site twice in order to help me with my thesis on how fansubs are killing the anime industy.

Fansubs take away views and profit from legit sources. Less views = less revenue + lower potential for Japanese Publishers to give rights.
Will post more detailed if needed :\

Edit: Yeah, I just looked at their page. They use official subs from CR/Funi/TAN and use it as their own.

Well, THAT's not very nice of them! No wonder my "anime senpai" hates CommeSubs so much... aside from the fact he thinks their translation is crap...

Alas! The downside of Piracy!

Thanks for your reply (to my reply...)
