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.



That is correct. We always try to offer to highest resolution possible, but it is based on the raw materials we receive from Japan.

Y'all need to petition Showgate, TBS and Media Factory to include Latin America ~ between those three licensors that is 8 series that they locked out of Latin America.

As far as excuses, well, Aniplex and Kodansha were both 1-1, with one including Latin America and the other blocked, so its possible that's some other member of the production committee causing trouble or some other license terms getting in the way. But not much room for doubt with Showgate, TBS and Media Factory.


Are you saying to me that we should write to those company directly for they license more shows here? I'm not sure this work, they didn't seem to consider us a potential market place. So I can imagine their answer: first increase the suscriber number and then maybe you have the shows...

Yeah, I know that about Kodansha but I wanted to watch Attack on Titan.

Finally got to see LoveLive! 1 in 1080p when I got the import Blu-Ray disc and the funny thing is that it is Crunchyroll subs so I guess some of your deals include your subs being on the disc or do they supply the subs for Crunchyroll sometimes? Word for word identical (yes, I watched them side by side LOL) except that episode 1 doesn't have OP subs here but does on the Blu-Ray like later episodes here. The Blu-Ray came later, I assume it took longer to sub the OP...

Guess I need to get the Gargantia Blu-Rays to see it in glorious 1080p too...

But thanks for posting the highest resolution you have! 720p is still good!

Sure.

A lot of the Japanese are more along the lines of letting their overseas licensors worry about the overseas markets. But the ones who do not put much weight on international streaming are not likely to listen vary hard to what Crunchyroll tells them. Your petition would be to try to focus their attention.


So I can imagine their answer: first increase the suscriber number and then maybe you have the shows...

I'd say that the petition would explain that as Latin American subscribers, you have found that they need to give more licenses to Latin America to help you recruit more Latin American subscribers.


Yeah, I know that about Kodansha but I wanted to watch Attack on Titan.

I'm not saying you're wrong to be frustrated. You're quite right: its frustrating.

That wouldn't be surprising.

Technically, the subtitles are a translation, which makes them a derivative work. So a translation requires the permission of both the original work creator and the permission of the translator. Granting the original rights owner permission to use the translation at the end of the license avoids a rights tangle.

If a licensor offered Crunchyroll better terms in return for sharing the rights up front, rather than the end of the contract, that's a good deal for both sides. The licensor avoids duplicating the effort that Crunchyroll has to do anyway, and Crunchyroll gets better terms.

That one is an NISA license, so chances are, the subs were done by either NIS or NISA, and supplied to CR.
If that was the case, since they were official translations, they would get included in the JP BDs if they included subs.

Similar to how FUNi & Aniplex US subs show up on JP releases from time to time.

Uh, per the announcement: "Attack on Titan will broadcast every Sunday afternoon pacific time starting on April 14 with episode 1, and 2 for premium members - with an exact broadcast time to be confirmed at a later point."

It's not even Sunday yet--at least not at the CR office. I expect you will have your answer, and be able to watch the show here, in less than 24 hours (if you're in one of the regions also indicated in that announcement). Patience.
