Plus this works for people who can't access Hulu, but can get Crunchyroll.
Does anyone have that predicament?


Everyone in Canada! So yeah for us! Sorry for those in the UK and Europe as it doesn't help you but for Canadians this is a good day.

Four catalog titles from North American distributors ... how do you suggest Crunchyroll get UK rights from people who do not hold the UK rights?

Write to MangaUK and Kaze to sign package deals to stream their content on Crunchyroll, and then you'd see more UK licenses on catalog titles. As long as its Sentai, Aniplex of America and NIS America (like Ho5L), those can only be for North America, since that's all they license. Even when they get UK or Ozzie rights, they sublicense to UK and Ozzie distributors ... so the ball is still in the court of the UK home video distributors.

Ditto, but Madman. There's nothing that Crunchyroll can do to force Madman to make a deal with them ... on the other hand, if Madman wants to make a deal, obviously Crunchyroll would be happy to do it. So why are you talking on a Crunchyroll form about it instead of writing to Madman about it?

But a title that was simulcast two years ago to North America alone is not going to have extended rights available, are they?

Indeed, except for KZPLAY in France and some cell phone streaming in Asia, almost all of the catalog titles available outside of North America are available on Crunchyroll because Crunchyroll got broader region rights for the simulcast, and they weren't licensed by anyone else, so they've stayed up.

Well it is from NIS America, so its for US and Canada, since NIS only have those rights. If companies don't want to sell rights in other regions or don't want to sell them at a reasonable price, then it's not Crunchyroll's fault.

How do you figure your money is paying for stuff that you can't watch?

It's a catalog title, its not like Crunchyroll is paying a big Minimum Guarantee for it ... its mostly going up to raise the profile of the home video release and to make residual royalties. And if you can't watch it, your money can't go to pay royalties for it.

Why whinge about it on Crunchyroll? Crunchyroll doesn't have the power to either force UK distributors to license catalog titles, and for the ones that UK distributors have licensed, Crunchyroll doesn't have the power to force them to sublicense the series to Crunchyroll.

Why don't you contact the people who do have the power, get on the twitter and talk to the UK distributors about signing a package deal with Crunchyroll.

That doesn't make any sense. If you can't watch it, you can't generate views for it, so you don't give it any royalties. Since you only give royalties to the shows you watch, your money goes to the shows you are able to and also decide to watch.



Exactly! And this is exactly why it isn't good enough to pay Crunchyroll and then go watch your show elsewhere because it isn't available or is delayed here. That practice doesn't pay that particular show anything. It does pay Crunchyroll which is still a good thing but doesn't go all the way to supporting the anime.

Go tell the UK distributors. They're the one's who can offer catalog titles to CR.

You should join the premium members forum and post this in the "what would you like to see" thread stickied at the top.

This was a Media Blasters title, and they've let a lot of their licenses expire, so maybe Crunchyroll could get it straight from Japan and add more regions than they normally get for catalog titles.
