So far this season, here is what I have to watch:

Continuing (CR only):
Attack on Titan
Space Brothers
Naruto Shippuden
Hunter x Hunter
Majestic Prince
Mushibugyo
Aoi Sekai no Chushin de
(Quarterly)

New On CR:
Hakkenden 2 (Enjoyed the first season (still not quite sure why). This one looks to be more of the same.)
Day Break Illusion (Magical girl. Sorta a Madoka type vibe but lighter with some Arcana Famiglia mixed in.)
Fate/kaleid liner PRISMA ILLYA (Might drop. The first episode was really annoying. Had a dark Nanoha thing going on.)
Dog & Scissors (Hilarity Bottled and Sold)
Chronicles of the Going Home Club (Random fun)
Rozen Maiden (Not sure about this one. The first episode was confusing and the second didn't really grab me. Seems really dark.)
Servant x Service (Parody comedy. Perhaps the funniest of the season. It is in close running with D&S.)
Makai Ouji: Devils and Realist (Not quite sure about this one. It is kinda funny but has a Yaoi vibe. I hate Yaoi.)
The Eccentric Family (I don't know. The series doesn't seem to have a direction yet. And it is kinda a downer.)
Sunday Without God (Seems like it is going to be somewhat bizarre. That is a plus in my book.)
Gatchaman Crowds (Don't know. Is a remake of an older series (G force or something similar) The first episode didn't do much for me.)
Fantasista Dolls (Seems kinda light. I guess this would classify under magical girl. Not sure with this one yet.)

New On Funimation:
High School DxD (Second season. Enjoyed the first. Lots of comedy and fan service. This one seems more serious though.)
Danganronpa (One of the 'must sees' for summer 2013. Seems contrived. I will give it a few more episodes but, I wouldn't be surprised if I dropped it.).
Hyperdimension Neptunia (I just don't know. Cutesy magical girl. I will probably drop this one.)
Ghost in the Shell: Arise (Watched (Don't ask where.) The first installment was good. Lot of filling out to do.)
Sakura Wars the Movie (Looks interesting. Waiting on Funimation)

Others:
Blood Lad (Still don't know what to make of this one. Sort of funny but, there isn't really a lot to go on yet (Still introducing characters).)
Symphogear G (Second Season. Magical Girl. Enjoyed the first one and the second looks better. Not picked up by anyone so you have to go to the dark side to find it. Are you reading this CR? Good opportunity for a late season pickup here.)

That seems to cover it for me. If anyone has any recommendations for series that i missed, I would appreciate a reply (quote please) or a PM at your convenience.

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.


Thanks for the correction. I could have sworn that CR simulcast it (or at least delay cast it). Well, that is what happens to your memory when you get close to thirty. Fair warning to all of you youngsters out there.

Well, maybe CR will be watching this thread and go after it. If not, I am sure we can find it on the dark side.

Edit: I just wanted to say (And someone correct me if I am wrong) that I don't think it is illegal to fansub series and publish them (for free) if they are not available in your area/region. I think I read that when I was looking into some DMCA complaints several years ago. However, once the material is officially made available you have to remove the fansubs. I think that is how it works. If someone has some clarification on this issue I would much appreciate it.

Danganronpa (Hasn't been put up yet. One of the 'must sees' for summer 2013. Not enthused by the description (not my thing)).
Hyperdimension Neptunia (Waiting on Funimation)

Danganronpa and Neptunia have both premiered on Funimation already, both were put up on Friday, July 12th. They still don't appear on their list of shows or simulcasts but you can search for them or use the links posted a few posts up in this thread:

Well, I guess it's safe to say that Anime-on-Demand is officially not putting up new simulcasts. It's been a weird ride, but at least the UK was only locked out of two series this season.

Thanks. I don't use funimation's site a lot so I didn't realize it had a separate videos page.

I was thinking it was later last season when they finally posted something, but apparently not:

I checked their Facebook page and they haven't updated anything since their announcement of SNAFU. No posts or anything. So, I would say it is a good bet that they have gone the way of the dodo.

Two points:

KzPlay is up to the second episode of their two simulcast series this season, neither of which is up on Anime-On-Demand. Previously the KzPlay series had been a good chunk of their "free" streaming titles.

Anime-On-Demand has two Spring series with the note "Next Episode Thursday, July 4", along with one that says "Next Episode Friday June 21" ... suggesting that things likely came to a halt with the end of the Spring financial quarter at the end of June.

Looked it up and I have to say that I am not sorry they didn't. Looks like more of a soap opera according to the wikipedia description.

I am a huge fan of romantic comedy, and Kimi no Iru Machi is the absolute best shounen romance manga I have ever read. (My wife generally refers to most of the anime that I watch as soap operas... I used to watch those when I was in high school too...)

Well, to each his own. I don't really see something I would like from the plot summation. It looks like a lot of bouncing around from one drama to another. I can't rule out a poor summation either (It is wikipedia after all.).

I agree I was very excited to hear that Kimi no iru machi was getting anime. I was disappointed that no has apparently picked it up yet. So today I broke my cardinal rule and watched the first episode on streaming site that isn't legal. I must say I was pleasantly surprised how good the first episode was. I hope someone still picks it up like Crunchyroll or Funi so I can watch it legally.
