Oh there are two boxes now. If i'm correct there are only 3 yet to air anime,
Kakumeiki Valvrave, To Aru Kagaku no Railgun S and Hentai Ōji to Warawanai Neko. Since the only last one is possible, the second box means we get one of the series already aired? I vote for Date a Live, even if it will be not full simulcast.

If we count "worldwide except asia" as worldwide this season we get 5 worldwide anime for now(3 for people from Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, The Phillippines, and Singapore, 4 for the rest of asia). The good thing is that the said 5 anime are not 3-min shorts. Total anime for now is 18. So rate is 28%. Hope there at least 1 of the unannounced box is worldwide, it will be 30% then, a lot better then lowering to 20%... And 35% sounds even better...

For now there are 20 announced simulcast total. 18 comes from Crunchyroll and 2 from Evil Funi.

I just came to say this! I cannot believe no one has licensed this yet! As much as I would like to see this on Crunchyroll, I think it's too graphic for this site's large youth demographic, at least episode 1 anyway, and would be better suited for Funimation / Hulu

One item to keep in mind about Date a Live is that the stations other than Tokyo MX that air the show do so far later than is normally the case. According to the airing schedule, the other stations airing it will be two episodes behind Tokyo MX. If this is one of the cases where the simulcaster's contract doesn't allow them to stream until after the last station in Japan, CR could still have quite some time left to make this announcement.

Rumor/conjecture is that the production committee doesn't want to license it for simulcast in most countries (France being one notable exception).

While it is certainly possible that is reality, I would take it with a pinch of salt at this point.

I doubt this is a case of having to wait until the last station in Japan has aired the series, either. Of the stations airing the series, only BS11 has yet to do so at this moment, and they aren't a terrestrial station, and therefore don't normally factor into such considerations. Even if they did, we will be past that point in about 3.5 hours after I post this.

Any arguments about demographics and "better suited" aside, keep in mind that Funimation/Hulu means no international audience.

I still hold out some faint hope that we will either get it when Nico Nico shows it on April 10th... or we will get it as a late pickup, possibly quite late with Little Busters! being the record holder of 13 weeks I certainly hope it doesn't take that long!

If it is another Jojo's with no pickup at all then it will be unfortunate...

Crunchyroll already has a series broadcasting on that association of independent broadcasters, including Tokyo MX, TV Kanagawa and Sun TV, and its simulcasts with the Sun TV broadcast.

So if that's what is going on, we'll know if its streams on or around Sunday 24:30 Japan time, two weeks after Tokyo MX broadcast.

The Data A Live question has been resolved; Funimation has it:

Yeah, I know, I was in the Spring2013 thread this afternoon after I finished grading.

Indeed, its also expected that Attack on {the} Titan{s} has been picked up by Funimation, based on the same spelunking that revealed Date A Live prior to Funimation's announcement.

I saw the AoT graphics at Funimation's site that hpulley posted the links to. It seems to be a done deal to me, leaving the announcement to only tell us when it will be streamed.

And with the strange UK carve-outs today, despite the Nordic Countries and Rugby Union Tri-Nations, we may have seen two Kaze simulcast streams in the two announced today (Tuesday).

With the catalog boxes coming up on Crunchyroll, it seems likely the unfilled box up now is the last simulcast announcement, unless there is a license delay and a late add further on into the season.
