Far too many non-simulcast titles, and high profile ones too! RDG, Date A Live, Attack on Titan... Bummer!

Arata the Legend is North America only and exclusive to premium members, but it still has TV Tokyo listed as the publisher. This would imply that it is not a sublicense and someone on the production committee is blocking more areas. The other possibility I can think of is that VIZ licensed it, since we don't have much of a precedent for sublicenses from VIZ, but those we do have - earlier Bleach episodes, Naruto - have the same restrictions.

Edit:
They updated the forum topic, it seems that it won't be premium only, so the second half of my speculation should be disregarded.

I am actually surprised that VIZ won't be streaming this.... Not that I am complaining or anything hahaha.

Although I do think you are right. VIZ has most likely licensed this.

Since it turns out that it isn't Premium only, my VIZ speculation seems more like wishful thinking. It would be great if they switched to using Crunchyroll rather than Hulu though.

It could just have been sloppy writing, but it could also be contract terms that they negotiated up, so I wouldn't be very surprised if this was Viz in the US, Kaze in France and Anime on Demand in the UK.

I don't think they'd switch from Hulu ~ the franchise terms are attractive, so they'll still stream on Hulu and embed that stream at their site. They'd just add Crunchyroll.

Two boxes left, the series which hasn't been premiered and not getting a simulcast announcement yet are Yuyushiki , Toaru Kagaku no Railgun S ,and Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko.

Since Railgun S is unlikely to be CR simulcast, the two boxes most likely Yuyushiki and Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko or late announcement of series which already premiered.

Unless it gets updated, looks like we only have one box left

It would be odd for VIZ to skip two seasons though. I think there is still a fair chance that this could a trial run for VIZ sublicensing to Crunchyroll. It would be great if VIZ did a package deal with Crunchyroll so some of their backcatalog(Monster, Inuyasha) could end up here.

I'm also in the Crunchyroll will add a few more boxes camp as far as annoucements.

If it is Viz experimenting with sublicensing to Crunchyroll, Crunchyroll could be paying for an exclusive week for premium members before Viz shares streaming, as Naruto works, which would leave Viz with a week to announce their "simulcast" of the series.

I wouldn't be surprised to see a couple of late signings, and if they happen to see the new box go up only a little while before the announcement.

Hmm did CR add a TBA box to the lineup page? I swear it was only 3 at the bottom before.

They did. I looked there only short while ago when there were just 3 boxes, one of which was still TBD. Now there 4, with 2 TBD.

What fun!
