Sorry, I thought you meant the 'current' C3 show since this is the summer anime thread though you were comparing to older shows so I should have known...


yeah, I tend to follow Studio's. so, when I saw Silver Link(which was the studio for above said anime) doing a Summer 2013 anime means I just gotta check it out. plus, I hear WataMote is pretty popular.

Yes, it seems to be popular, ironic given the title LOL. I think it is really good so you should just go watch it, popular or not... it is different however! You will see

SHIT!
so, I just found out that the studio that does the anime C³ Cube×Cursed×Curious & Shakugan no Shana Final, studio: Silver Link, also does WataMote! >< I'm going to have to start watching this along with Day Break Illusion because the studio: AIC did Date●A●Live >< BAH!


I will just note that while Silver Link helped on Shana Final, the animation production for Shana Final was done by J.C Staff so J.C Staff was the studio that did Shana Final.

But Silver Link is having a busy year with two anime this summer: Watamote and Fate/kaleid liner PRISMA ILLYA and they have two anime lined up for the Fall(Strike the Blood and Non Non Biyori).

YUP! I shoulda said helped, I was too excited that I forgot. and you took an "-edit" right off my finger tips... I've been wanting to point out that they're doing one of my top summer anime's, Fate/kaleid liner PRISMA ILLYA! just shows how solid the studio is.

Wow, Crunchyroll is really bringing out the big guns in their catalog titles, and I think this is the first time that Nozomi(the series page has the publisher as Right Stuf. Nozomi is Right Stuf's anime licensing arm) has sublicensed a show to CR.

Fantastic news.

It is the only show listed on their publisher page here, and I certainly can't recall any others they have provided to CR.

While I've watched many of their titles via their YouTube channel, I certainly welcome more of them coming to CR. For those curious what some of those titles could be, check this out:

here's an interesting piece of information I just read:


SILVER LINK. (シルバーリンク Shirubā Rinku?) is a Japanese animation studio, founded in December 2007 by former Front Line members (which in turn, Front Line was formed from former J.C. Staff members).

@ Compl3te. Yeah, that is interesting(and I did notice that on Wikipedia). And I love that Chamber avatar there.

From what is in the pipeline for Silver Link, they are going to be busy

Summer 2013: Fate/kaleid liner, Watamote(both directed by Shin Oonuma who did BakaTest and C3).
Fall 2013: Strike the Blood(directed by Hideyo Yamamoto who did New Prince of Tennis), Non Non Biyori(directed by Shinya Kawamo who did Kokoro Connect)
Winter 2014: No-Rin(MAL has that romanized as Nourin), which will be directed by Oonuma.

I should add that Oonuma was a protege of Akiyuki Shinbo.

EDIT: Moon Phase shows that the Japanese dub of Suraj-the Rising Star (an animation from India about cricket) premieres on Niconico on August 1st.

OK, region access round up. All percentages are new simulcasts alone, take short episode series as one-tenth (0.1), and based on a new simulcast count of 22.3. No catalog announcements are included. If I don't separate out "free" and "premium", the count is the same for both free and premium members (though of course not availability dates).

100%: US / Canada / South Africa
91%: UK / Eire
87%: Oz / NZ
73%: Scandinavia, Latin America premium
64%: Latin America free
60%: the Netherlands
50%: Spain/Portugal premium
46%: Turkey premium
41%: Spain/Portugal free
37%: Turkey free
19%: Iceland premium, France & Francophone premium
14%: Rest of Middle East premium, Rest of Europe premium, Rest of Africa premium
10%: Iceland free, France & Francophone free
5%: Rest of Middle East free, Rest of Europe free, Rest of Africa free
0.4%: Asia outside of Japan

South Africa hitting 100% likely comes from a combination of being part of general "English Speaking Countries" in media licensing without competing licensees as there are in the UK/Eire and OZ/NZ.

UK/Eire and OZ/NZ near the 90% point is par for the course by now, as is Scandinavia between 70% and 80%.

Latin America has done substantially better than in Spring, but they have had good summers before ... notable is 3 out of 4 Aniplex series with Latin American rights, with the only exception being a sequel of a title that had not previously had Latin American rights.

The big movers are Turkey and Spain/Portugal, with both getting two additional series for premium members thanks to TV Tokyo granting worldwide ex-Asia Premium VOD rights in addition to regular streaming rights in the English Speaking Countries, Scandinavia and Latin America.

Everywhere else outside of Asia ~ Rest of Europe, Rest of Middle East, Rest of Africa ~ seems to be a smattering of titles that brought a wider group in the wake of Northern Europe and the Iberian Peninsula, Turkey, and South Africa respectively.

The almost total lack of Asian titles is a trend that has been getting more entrenched over the past two years. Crunchyroll is, of course, caught in a chicken-and-the-egg problem with Asia, with a relatively small share of Crunchyroll's membership not generating appreciable royalties, leading to few licenses, reducing the incentive for Asian members to subscribe.

NB: Since I posted, I was reminded that the three new Aniplex titles had region access expanded to included Spain and Portugal after their original announcements, so the good news from Aniplex extends beyond Latin America ... though I am sure that Northern European members wish that it could be extended to Scandinavia and the Netherlands.

Crunchyroll has a panel at Otakon this Saturday, and there is still one TBD catalog title. Daily Lives of High School Boys came out today on home video so I am thinking that could be announced at the panel. Although I wouldn't be surprised if Genshiken or Rozen Maiden got their back catalog stuff filled.

Okay, I have been wondering about this. is Aoi Sekai no Chushin de still on the release schedule? I don't see it on the continuing simulcasts but, since it only comes out quarterly they may have not put it there. There is nothing on the show information or forum thread. Unfortunately, I don't remember when the third episode was released last season so I can't really compare it. Anyone have any info on this? I do like that show is a lot of ways even though is really isn't unique in any way. it is just kinda fun.

Good ole Wikipedia lists the release dates as:

October 20, 2012
January 3, 2012
April 4, 2013

Of note, MAL lists the status as "Finished Airing".

Thanks. Well, baring any new info, I guess I can take this one out of my lineup pretty soon.

Okay, so as with every season we have hits and misses. And they very with each individual. Here are my thoughts:

Excellent:
Day Break Illusion
PRISMA ILLYA
Servant x Service
Dog & Scissors
Sunday Without God


These series have far exceeded my expectations. Day Break Illusion and PRISMA ILLYA were actually close to not making my list based on the available descriptions. Another example of try it for yourself. Some of the best series have the worst descriptions. Servant x Service and Dog & Scissors are just insanely funny. I don't really think there is a huge deal behind them as far as story goes but, the writers keep the gags coming and not just reusing the same ones. Sunday Without God is just excellence. The story and the characters are as near perfect as they could be. More than that, everything is well balanced to provide a genuinely good experience.

Alright:
Hakkenden 2
Going Home Club
Fantasista Dolls
High School DxD
Neptunia
Symphogear G


These series are enjoyable but, not ones that I actually wait to watch. Hakkenden is just a little slow sometimes but, the story is good enough that it isn't really a problem. The Going Home Club is actually a running gag reel but, it recycles some of it's jokes and theme material. The episodes seem to get a little stale at points. What makes this one fairly good is that they basically machine gun you with gags so that you can't help but enjoy it. Fantasista Dolls is a little bizarre. It doesn't really fit into any of the standard anime types that I am aware of. But it is sorta funny although, they have started doing some recycling too. DxD never was a top tier series and the second season continues in the same. It is funny and lots of fan service. Enjoyable in general. Neptunia kinda just reels you in slowly. Honestly, it is not really that interesting and the fight sequences are short. I am not sure what makes me keep following this one but, I like it, sorta. Symphogear is like DxD but, the series is, in my opinion, better. The characters are not as flat and the story generally makes something of itself.

Disappointments:
Danganronpa
Blood Lad


These two series didn't live up to their hype in my opinion. From the description of Danganronpa, I was expecting something along the lines of BATOOM. Instead, we get a school led by a sadistic, bi-polar teddy bear and filled with "super high-school" powered students. They even use green for blood and animate inside the animation (you have to see it to understand) the gruesome parts. This is still interesting and I still follow the series but, it is far less than I expected. With Blood Lad, I was thinking along the lines of The Devil is a Part Timer. Funny but, with serious moments too. Instead, we are delivered a gag reel. I don't believe that there has been a serious episode yet. Again, I still enjoy this one however, I think a lot more could and should have been done with the concept.

On The Chopping Block:
Gatchaman Crowds
Makai Ouji
The Eccentric Family


These series are just having a hard time holding my interest. Gatchaman just seems off in many ways, none of them good. And what is with scissors in Japan? Gatchaman, Dog & Scissors, Mysterious Girlfriend, Severing Crime Edge, and several others have used scissors. Is there some fascination in Asia with dual bladed cutting instruments? Makai Ouji is just kinda blah to me. There isn't really a distinguishing or interesting thing in it to me. Add the yayoi vibe on top of it and we have the making of a drop. The Eccentric Family is just not really interesting to me. Parts are funny but, it just seems a mess over all.

Dropped:
Rozen Maiden

I thought Rozen Maiden would be interesting. But, it really just doesn't do it for me. I don't think the story is lade out very well. But, there is so much back story missing that it is really hard to tell. And, the one episode catch up just made everything worse. Lastly, the characters just don't do anything for me.

Well, that does it for me. I will probably be dropping a few more in the next week or so. A few of these series seem worth giving another episode but, I am not hopeful. I know that may of you will probably disagree with me but, this is how I feel. Also, just for reference, I purposely ignored the continuing series. If I have already followed them for three months then it is probably safe to guess how I feel about them.
