And then there were none... empty simulcast boxes that is. Could still be some added later but that seems to indicate that all the likely licenses have been announced. That means 25 new simulcasts and 10 continuing titles, not bad! Hopefully they're still working on some late pickups.

Still two library title boxes to fill as well.

As far as I know, Funimation still doesn't have any info on their schedule for Brothers Conflict or Danganronpa so it would appear that Funi is at least a week late with BroCon and could be a week late with Danganronpa. Quelle surprise.

(At least Daisuki and Viz seem to be prompt with their simulcasts unlike Funi).

No tweets, news items or "Shows" page indications of anything for their new simulcasts but they sometimes start weeks late and then put up a few episodes to catch up to less than a week behind but they are never in a rush to get things started.

And of course no announcement of High School DxD New yet either... very odd!

Only Futari wa Milky Holmes and Kimi no Iru Machi are yet to be aired and not getting simulcast announcement yet.
Kimi no Iru Machi are a TV Tokyo and GONZO series, it's somewhat surprising CR doesn't simulcast it.

To the best of my memory, Viz has always done a gone job with being on time. Daisuki got their first episode up on time, so I'll give them credit for that. We shall see how they fare in the long term. At least they are starting with only one simulcast, and not 6 NicoNico.com did in summer 2011.

As you indicated, no surprise regarding Funimation. This is the company that holds the record for going the deepest into a season without making any simulcast announcements (fall 2010; as I recall it was about 6 weeks in), and the longest between an announcement and actually streaming the series (Sekirei: Pure Engagement, which started streaming around 8 weeks into the season).

Just to spite us, however, AFAIK, they also hold the record for the earliest announced simulcast, as they acquired Last Exile: Fam - The Silver Wing early in the year (before summer, as I recall) and announced they would be simulcasting it when it premiered in the fall.

They seem to be rather quite up until the point where they post that episode(s) are going up the next day, or even the same day.

I'm not too concerned over High School DxD New. I don't see any way they would not be getting it. I'll admit I don't really care that much about Futari wa Milky Holmes, but I would really like to know if they are going to simulcast Symphogear G, since it isn't the slam dunk that DxD New is.

That all the signed contracts have been announced, anyway. The first season that they had to pull [?] boxes after putting them up was also the last season they had to do that, so I reckon since then they have not put the boxes up until the contracts are signed, sealed and delivered.

They normally give an simulcast announcements closing post when they know for sure that there are no more announcements coming in the near future, so until I see that, I'll reckon its at least 50:50 odds that there is something still in negotiations

When that post comes, they've often teased that there might be a late announcement coming if there is something that'll take longer to finalize negotiations.

Hanamonogatari confirmed to be separate from Monogatari 2nd season, could be an OVA like the last 3 Tsubasa Cat episodes were.

It would be interesting to see if CR will get that or if Daisuki will.

Just curious but what character does Hanamonogatari primarily focus on?

It appears only Brothers Conflict is getting a multi-episode launch (episodes 1-3), although DxD New is getting 2 episodes the second time around.


At least this establishes a 2 for 2 precedent that if Funimation simulcasts a series but doesn't license it for home video, don't expect them to simulcast any sequel.

The third Milky Holmes will likely go without a simulcast, but I am hoping CR can swoop in and pick up Symphogear G.

In case anyone is interested, these are the Funimation show pages for Danganronpa and Neptunia

http://www.funimation.com/danganronpa-the-animation
http://www.funimation.com/hyperdimension-neptunia

Neptunia was actually through Showgate rather than Media Factory.

I agree. Milky Holmes kinda make me gag but, I did enjoy Symphogear and since 1) CR simulcast the first season and 2) it isn't an 'in demand' series, I would lay odds on CR picking it up. Especially since I haven't seen any announcements of anyone else streaming it. If I missed something, please let me know because I would enjoy watching it.

One minor correction: It was NicoNico.com and Funimation that simulcast the first Symphogear series, not CR.

As it seems clear Funimation has wrapped up their announcements, NicoNico.com no longer exists, Dwango isn't one of the investors in Daisuki.net, TAN is apparently out of the simulcast game, and Viz has a simulcast, that pretty much leaves CR or no one for a simulcast.
