I really do not understand why some companies (Showgate, Aniplex, NTV) refuse to license shows for Latin America. Nobody will stop watch because it is not in CR, but we have signed, we do so in support of these companies and they are indirectly encouraging piracy ...

Severing Crime Edge and Flowers of Evil look good. I was surprised that The Flowers of Evil isn't licensed in France; I guess I shouldn't be, but the French might get a kick off the name (Les Fleurs du Mal...any other Baudelaire fans here?) I am very pleased that crunchyroll is getting more good titles

You're right, plus we're so close to the U.S. we are in the same continent but they forget about us, plus as far as I know Crunchyroll is the only available legal service to watch anime, as I write this I think I wouldn´t mind paying a super premium account or more of the current premium membership if with that you can get the same shows and simulcast as the U.S. , but that's just me

I believe that "burocracy" can take a big part of the blame regarding this issue. Licensing stuff has always been some complicated affair to deal with, and not only in anime business. Also, our goverments don't make things easier for those publisher, since they don't invest much on this kind of entertainment. What is a big shame for my country, which is such a big reference regarding japanese culture and has received so much influence from it for many many years. Probably censorship has something to do about it as well, because you can't simply stream/broadcast everything you want to another country without getting some sort of aproval from the goverment (that's what I think).

Yes, Aniplex is 1 for 2 this season ~ which could obviously be one better.

Oh, not everyone else. Takeshobo* and Kings Records are both 1 for 1, while as noted above Aniplex is 1 for 2. The real bad guys are Showgate, Toho, and Media Factory (the last two are both 0/1).

(* Of course, the Takeshobo series is a short, and they normally get broader licenses since they almost never get licensed internationally for TV or home video).

Except for some series on Viki and a handful of wide region series on Youtube (the majority of legit anime on Youtube is extremely region restricted), its Crunchyroll.

For decades, they were organized around broadcast licensing, and then with DVD's they started organizing around DVD Regions, and in DVD geography, Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean are all in the same region with South America ... along with Australia and New Zealand.

Obviously for online streaming its crazy to deny Crunchyroll Latin American streaming rights because Madman in Australia is negotiating for Australia/New Zealand rights, but because of DVD region codes, its one of the things that can happen for a licensor that is stuck in the past.

Since we can't take those issues directly to the publishers, I think all we can do is keep supporting them and letting CR tell them about our contribution (which I really hope it has been kinda reasonable >.<)

That last point is something I had no idea, so thank you for the fact, and I can only hope licences and rights and everything gets better, I´ll support the site and the industry as much as I can, and hope to get more shows

yeah I agree with you, I love CR and I'm grateful they think about us Latins and many other countries besides U.S., I hope they take all the comments in consideration and try to take our voices to the publishers and we get more shows, and like you said we must keep supporting them, this season might be a little poor, last season I think was great, many good shows, so hope the best for next and for the remaining shows to be announced

Not getting Saint Seiya for Latin America was the stupidest thing ever. They should have put in more effort, they lost a lot of viewers/subscribers. People are obsessed with that here.

I've never met someone about my age who does not know about Saint Seiya. This thing is some freaking big business here and it has been like this for more than 10 years already u.u"

TAN has the first season of Samurai Girls. The dubbed version is uncensored (which is a bit irritating).

Oddly enough, at TAN's own site, only the first two episodes show as available for free viewing (which I expected for the uncensored dub, but not the still censored sub), yet the entire first series is available at Hulu:
