For those in the UK wondering why CR (and Daisuki) didn't get Kill la Kill for that region, and still want to watch it legally:

Availability Information
Sorry, due to licensing limitations, videos are unavailable in your region.


Getting real tired of your crap Crunchyroll.

First of all, let's start off with perhaps one of the MOST ANTICIPATED anime this season: KILL LA KILL!!!


Real tired.


Set to broadcast on October 3 at 11:30 am Pacific Time for North American, South American, and South African audiences,


Surely, surely the UK is a larger market for you than South Africa.

Huh, well when I Googled them the only results were their page and a bunch of unrelated stuff.

...someone released Cowboy Bebop on Bluray?

Edit: Not a big fan of their business model but the price point is decent...ish.

Well just to reassure that they are a legit company. They released the first half of Cowboy Bebop back in the end of July and second half is being released on 14th October. You should check their catalog page, they're re-releasing some good series like Gurren Lagann and Durarara!

I prefer Crunchyroll's subscription model but theirs is interesting, hope it goes well for them.

Note for Latin American members: Daisuki says on twitter that they have both Magi2 and Valvrave2 for North & South America and South Africa ~ identical to Crunchyroll for Magi2, but new access for Valvrave2. I do not know about the catalog titles, but one can hope that the Latin American rights to the catalog titles are still available.

That is your clue that it wasn't Crunchyroll's decision. Of course if it was Crunchyroll's call, their second biggest targets would by the UK & Latin America ... but a streaming site cannot outbid a home video distributor.

Even if AllTheAnime.com only has the streaming rights for KILL la KILL (Wakanim.tv has announced that they do not have download rights for KILL la KILL) .. an option to pick up a home video license carries more clout than a streaming site brings.

Look at Daisuki's rights: according to twitter, The Americas, Europe excluding UK/Eire, French Speaking Countries, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Philippines, India and the Middle East, no Australia or New Zealand.

What are the source of the UK, French, and Australia/New Zealand cutouts? Wakanim.tv got the UK/French rights, Madman got the Australia/NZ rights.

Your money goes to fund the shows you watch. So your money is funding one or more of the 70%+ simulcasts available in the UK.

To be honest, it makes sense to do so in an "off season".

Regardless of where the money goes, regardless of how much we do or don't get compared to other even-less-lucky countries, the fact is that as an end-user you're paying to be able to watch shows you enjoy.
If a season doesn't have anything you want to watch, save your money and resubscribe if/when there is content that you are interested in.

I very nearly did likewise this time around. Until finally, at almost the last minute, they started announcing UK-available titles that were actually ones I was eager to see.
But I'm still ticked about KlK. (No. Web-only streaming does not and will not cut it. There's a reason I have multi-app-platform subscriptions like CR and LoveFilm). I'm still ticked about Beyond the Boundary. And there are a good five or more new titles we did get I'd happily trade to have those two here.

(Yet for some people, those were the dealmakers that kept them on this service.)

But yeah. if there was a season that didn't have anything to my taste, I'd take a break for a few months until some hows I liked started. OK, I could use it to clear my queue's extensive backlog. But if there's no new shows, I could save my money and clear my Blu-ray and videogame backlog instead.

That makes sense. After all, the UK doesn't have any premium-only series, so if there is only one or two series that you are really interested in seeing, you can either watch them a week after they simulcast on free ad-stream, or else if you prefer the higher stream quality, wait until the last month of the season and sign up for a single month to marathon them.

Looking at the series available and deciding whether or not they are worth the cost of a subscription makes much more sense than making the decision based on imagining the cross-subsidies of costs of contracting, mastering and subtitling running in reverse.

Also, its now clear who to ask to get KILL la KILL and Samarai Flamenco rights for Crunchyroll in the UK/ROI ... from the AllTheAnime site:

OK, SO YOU’RE A DIFFERENT SERVICE – WILL I BE ABLE TO WATCH YOUR SHOWS ON CRUNCHYROLL OR ANIME ON DEMAND?

We would like to see any title licensed by Anime Limited – either for digital only or all rights to be available to as many people as possible – so if you don’t care about download then there is a viable channel for you to enjoy the titles too. For now we hope the free soon to be ad-supported streaming on our site is a good halfway house, but we know there are a lot of people who’d like to see it on other services too.

Rest assured, we’re currently talking to a wide variety services about what can be done from simulcast onwards in partnership with them. Hopefully we will have good news in the near future and certainly for upcoming seasons!

So AllTheAnime are the people to talk to about granting the streaming rights to UK/ROI.

Given that the U.S. represents 49% of CR's traffic vs. 9% for the UK at last check, and premium memberships are probably close to 70% U.S., there is no need for UK funds for our licensing. On average, a person will only watch so many hours per month, which is why CR can charge the same price now they did 4 years, when everyone had access to far fewer titles.

Perhaps you can point to any UK anime streaming service, current or past, which offered even 1/3 the titles that CR does, and was profitable enough to stay in business.

I guess Australian and New Zealand users being able to watch Kill la Kill is a result of Madman getting its arse handed to itself over the episode six leak.

Well played, Crunchyroll. This makes my subscription all the more useful.
