So going on that, if they were given 720p source material, they wouldn't stream it at 1080p.


LoveLive! and Gargantia right now are 720p maximum, I guess for that reason.


Most likely, yes ... and why Sparrow's Hotel and Bakemonogatari are 360p and 480p only.

Now, just because the materials are 1080i anamorphic (the Japanese main HD broadcast standard), that doesn't mean that the original art was all done in 1080p. Background art, line art and CGI might all have been done at lower resolutions. But as long as some material was created at greater than 720p resolution (for instance, if the background art was created at 1440x810), then the 1080i source will have image detail that would be lost at 720p.

I had a pretty good experience with Funimation on Roku, when I had my subscription there. A couple of episodes seemed to be miscoded, since they wouldn't play on my Roku I had to watch them on the Hulu on a computer, but other than that I had good experience with the Roku channel. I heard they had some trouble with it in January, but that seems to have settled down.

There are few reason for me. Most important is that they not only lock videos with region restriction. I for example can't get to they blog post or any information on the site. For example http://beta.funimation.com/rojas/blog/funimation-adds-karneval-to-the-spring-simulcast-schedule/7594413 or similar press realease are "Access denied You are not authorized to access this page."
Not long ago going to funimation page from outside US resulted in redirection to neverre corp page so you won't take they bandwidth.
Even http://www.funimation.com/about-us is "Thank you for your interest. Unfortunately, this site is not available in your country."

I don't like they policy, don't like how they don't give a sh*t about other anime fans.

Second reason would be that it's better for me if crunchy licenced anime even if it's not available in my country. Unlike Funi, crunchy only enforces RR becouse they forced to do it by licence agreement. And it's not (I hope) CR policy to bring anime only to US or any selected group of countries but worldwide.


Ps. Personally i don't like how crunchy hides search results if anime is not available in my country. For example typing oreimo in search won't give me links to series page. But at least series page is not region blocked and i can access it...

"It is pretty good news to know that crunchyroll is airing new anime series like Oreamo 2 and Shingeki no Kyojin / Attack on Titan , to be honest i saw the first episode of Attack of titan some where else and to me it felt in same category as death note and claymore , strong content, raw violence and amazing realistic approach glad to hear crunchyroll is airing it and give it its share of popularity it deserves!"

Oh I see. Never knew their online service have these issues. I only buy countless Blu-Ray's from them. Also the majority of Funi titles are on Hulu as well, that's what I use when Crunchy dosen't have an anime I watch. So far the only problem I have with Crunchy is there streaming has to many issues on the PS3, and not 360 and I wish I could resume my video from where I left off.
