Would be a great help if CR could take the time to update series availability instead of letting videos show as about to be released and then nothing happens.

Also would be useful if you would update a series availability in the actual anime itself. For instance the only place we can see when the next Naruto or blast of tempest episode comes out is if we look at the front page for crunchyroll and scroll all the way down to the "Fall simulcast 2012" section.

You would reach a lot more users if this information was actually available on the pages for these series.

Thanks.

The next episode is displayed in the show pages as a "coming soon" box with a countdown to when it comes out. It appears there at the same time as the rest of the site. You can view the whole calendar here. As far as availability, if there is some sort of delay or abnormality in the schedule, then it is usually put on the page. If you mean region availability, that is on the series announcement thread.

There is no "Coming Soon" box with a count down in either of the series mentioned in the original post right now.

Both of these series did have coming soon videos that were very confusing originally which stated the show would air at the normal time. These videos stayed up until the normal air time of the show and were then taken down.

Thanks for the link to the calendar. Did not know there was a launch calendar! Where is the link normally?

The purpose of this topic is to let CR know they would probably spend a lot less time responding to customer questions if they would keep on top of availability within the actual series. We as customers would then not anticipate an episode is coming out when it really isn't, we would also know when to check back for the next episode.

That is because of the holidays. A lot of shows are delayed for 2 weeks at this time. The link is normally the "more" button at the top of the coming soon section.
