Liking this, becaus it seems like it'll be available for most people, and not just specific few countries.
I really hate seeing the message about an anime being blocked in Norway.

But they really need to get stuff organized on that site, and fast.

I won't registrer for now, not until they get some anime that I actually want to watch.
And as I've said, it's too unorganized atm.

Ok, so they start out with a library of 30 episodes (not thirty different anime series)???? Seriously??? Lame.

I'll stick with Crunchyroll which has so much more licensed and HD.

Yes, for catalog titles, this seems like the best hope for getting wide region access. Crunchyroll gets a majority of their simulcasts for Scandinavia ~ it seems like Sentai has added it to their standard streaming region request ~ but as long as it gets catalog titles from home video distributors, the catalog titles will be a lot more scarce.

I feel they should have just called this a public beta, and waited until OnePiece was on the site before declaring it officially launched.

But if you don't register, you can enter the drawing for the free prizes.

I'm surprised they haven't made any moves regarding simulcasts yet. That's what most people want from a anime streaming service atm, a nice library is a good bonus but if you don't have the newest and freshest anime why would people bother coming to your site at all(except for the nice prizes for the giveaway )

So far I have yet to get the damned site to work! I have tried to view several of the episodes that say they are free and always get a message saying that the player cannot play the content at this time. FAIL!

The first chance they'd have at simulcasts is late June and July since when the Summer anime starts. (I somehow imagine that Toei won't surprise us with a Pretty Cure simulcast annoucement).

I'll be going to Sunrise's panel at Anime Boston on Saturday so maybe they'll announce some more Sunrise titles on Daisuki

I have yet to have a problem of that type.

Before posting this message, I started the first episodes of both Aniplex series and both Sunrise series and had no problem with any of those four.

Either the problem is on your system or is at least isolated to your area of the United States.

Have you signed in? May be a coincidence, but I had a video failure before I signed up, and didn't have one after ... well, except when trying it on my Nook Color, since it blocks playing to Android and Apple devices.

Yep, I'm signed in. I either get the message or it just sits there doing nothing. It could be that my version of Flash is out of date, but it works for all of the other streaming services I use, and it has happened on more than one machine.

That's what I'd expect, then. By multiple reports its a processor intensive player, so I wouldn't be surprised if it was aggressive in what Flash Player features it uses.

As expected, the poll was only the first of several rounds:

Period 1 5/16 to 5/26
Period 2 5/27 to 6/2
Period 3 6/3 to 6/9
Period 4 6/10 to 6/16
Period 5 6/17 to 6/23

I was expecting at least one more episode of each series, but perhaps those are coming later today. (I note episode 6 of Madoka Magica was apparently added about 2 hours ago).

Frankly, one episode per week per series would be disappointing, but should really be the minimum. I was really hoping for another 5 episodes or more per series.
