"The subbed version will be made available at a later date." I'm super happy Crunchyroll is streaming Rurouni Kenshin as I have not been able to watch it in full for many years, however, the nature of that statement bothers me some, it's vague, dismissive, it could mean anything, months, years even. Same with One Piece, "All previous episodes will be also be available on Crunchyroll at a later date."

I'm not angry, it's just it sounds like there's no plan, or it's something like you'll get around to it sometime, if you can. Without info, we fill in the blanks, & not positively either. Don't need exact dates, but a general plan would be nice.


It's 99% done... just waiting on a few more details. We don't always announce exact dates because sometimes we simply don't know and we would rather not give you guys misleading information only to let you down when it doesn't work out. It doesn't mean we're not working on it or it won't be done. Oftentimes it can be technical or legal issues that are just out of our control at the moment, so we don't want to over-promise and under-deliver.

However, I will say that once all the final tasks are done with the sub, they will be launched all at once for Premium Members, just like the dub.

Thank you for the reply! That little bit of extra information shines a whole new light on it, & is far more reassuring.

Woah, imagine my surprise when I saw that it was not only available for the UK but also in ENGLISH DUB! Is this the first English Dub on Crunchyroll? Now I don't know what to watch it in. I never watched all of Rurouni Kenshin when it aired on Toonami but I also only saw a few clips with subs. I applaud you for the retro anime Crucnhyroll. I was just thinking of what I was going to do for the Christmas break too.

I just started my free trial account a day ago. Does this mean I will get a month or only 2 weeks? I think my luck is zero :"(

Pity it is not available in Australia.

Would have been a great way to waste time at home.

Does this mean that other shows will be getting their dubbed versions later? Looking forward to it, if so.

Geographically speaking, it also includes the countries of what people refer to as "Central America". For licensing purposes, it is normally short hand for "the United States and Canada" (unless you see "North and South America", which typically means the actual geographic territories).

Licensing terminology can be weird, and usually CR is required to list it exactly as the licensor listed it.

South africa?? and no Europe??

South Africa is part of the block of "English speaking countries" (US, Canada, UK, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa) that are often licensed as a block. Australia and New Zealand appear to have been left out due to an existing license by Madman Entertainment.

South Africa seems to have little or no competition for licenses, so I've seen at least one instance where a license covered only the US, Canada, and South Africa.

Hmm, normally when I have both subbed and dubbed available to me I alternate which one I watch episode by episode. Not sure what I'll do here. Ehh, I probably won't get to it fast enough to meet a dead end on that.

I'd love it if Crunchyroll can get season 2 of Code Geass, still am saddened by not seeing it. Oh, and I guess ... reacquire season 1? Who has it? It isn't available for streaming anywhere... Legally.

I could. But that would be cheating, kinda.
