Now I have to go to a pirate site to get the first season. I hate spoilers. You should license season one before you broadcast season two.

You don't have to "go to a pirate site" to watch the first season. The entire first season is on Hulu:

- http://www.hulu.com/love-chunibyo-and-other-delusions

Legal and free (Ad supported).

Cheers.

It's just the nature of the beast with simulcasts. We're getting what's currently airing for this season in Japan, regardless whether CR has already licensed previous seasons or not. Personally I couldn't be happier; I'd much rather watch these two favorites series of mine on here than elsewhere. I can understand the plight of newcomers to the series though.

Anways, like was said, Chuunibyou season 1 is available on Hulu and TAN. So there's no problem there.

You are correct though that there are things only available with fansubs:

Chuunibyou OVA special
Seitokai Yakuindomo season 1
Seitokai Yakuindomo OVA series (8 episodes)

I'm not going to advise you on where to go to watch these things. I don't think it's a big deal when it's a situation like this where it's not really available anywhere else. They do have a purpose sometimes.

And if you want a little less guilt, use ad blocking and a javascript blocker and you won't be financially supporting the sites who offer those streams.

Best case scenario is that CR ends up acquiring season 1 of Seitokai Yakuindomo. But my worry is that they wouldn't be able to get the OVA series as well, which is basically a second season in itself.

That is assuming bernardwheelerjr is in the United States.

For those in Canada, it can also be legally viewed at The Anime Network:

Yes I'm in the US. Thank you all for your sudgestions. My problem with HULU is they not only saturate their paid service with ads (and I believe if I pay for the service I shouldn't have to deal with adds) but their ad software is horribly executed. It screws up most devices. As it is backed by some of the hugest media giants like FOX, NBC and others it should preform better. Honestly I'd rather deal with crunchyroll. And if crunchy roll can't provide the content I'll go to a fansub site before I pay for hulu's fragged up crap.

You can view the first Chunboyo ad free and in 720p at TAN (The Anime Network) by subscribing. Unfortunately, unlike CR and Funimation, they don't appear to offer a free trial, so you can't sign up, view the series in a couple of weeks or less and then cancel. That means for subscribing for at least one month at $6.95. If you check their catalog for other series you are interested in, however, you might find it would be worth it.

Before last season, I would have expected CR to have the first Chunboyo series here (as it is licensed by Sentai), but the failure to bring over the first Infinite Stratos series broke their record in that regard.


Seitokai Yakuindomo is a gag comedy anime, so there is very little you would be "spoiled" by not viewing the first series. In fact, for the most part you could view the episodes out of sequence and not have much of a problem.

Thanks the ancient one. Honestly if I get good anime I don't. Care about so called free trials. I refuse to subscribe to funimation because they only accept visa and MasterCard. The same cards that are part of the holiday/ target scam. AMEX WAS AND STILL IS SAFE. Unfortunately funimation is like most porn and other scam sites who only accept the insecure visa and master cards. When unimation starts accepting AMEX I'll subscribe to them..

Amex has higher merchant fees, so takes a greater cut of a sale than both Visa or MC. If they're not already accepting it as a payment method, I'm not sure why they would add it.

It does look like Discover is a valid form of payment, and that seems to be one of the credit card companies that wasn't greatly affected by the Target scam (http://finance.yahoo.com/news/what-to-do-if-you-shopped-at-target-during-its-data-breach-174829049.html), and it appears that customers shopping at physical stores were the only ones whose information was stolen: link.

Actually eye of pain I have a bluebird amex card from Walmart. 0 fees. I paid $5 when I got the card and have paid nothing more than what I put on the card since. The Walmart visa costs $3.per month plus $3 every time you load the card so using that card would double the cost of most online subscriptions. The safesest way to do business online is with prepaid cards. You should never use any card attached to your bank account or credit rating online. Especially when the bluebird card is free.

Fees on VISA and Mastercard prepaid cards vary, as they can be issued by various banks. I believe Amex cards are issued by only American Express itself, and I believe Discover cards are also all issued by only one entity.

Here, for example is an example of a new no-fee prepaid VISA:
http://www.engadget.com/2014/01/22/t-mobile-mobile-money-prepaid-visa-free-checking/#comments

The catch on this one being completely fee-free is needing to be a T-Mobile customer, but you get the idea. If you see fees on a prepaid VISA or Mastercard, it is because the issuer knows they can get away with charging them, not because they are required.

Actually, I was talking about per-transaction fees that are taken out of each sale before the money is transferred to the seller, not fees paid directly by the cardholder. As far as I know, there are no credit cards that have no merchant fees.
