Moved to Site Support.

Doesn't it always hit Crunchyroll on Wednesdays? (You aren't saying it's just episode 89, right?) Usually this means that while a show may have its first airing in Japan earlier, that CR got the license from a channel that doesn't air so early, so CR's simulcast is based on that channel's broadcast date. Or it might just be in the licensing contract. (I don't know any details for this specififc show, so that's just general possibilities).

Thanks to answer, but i don't understand when you explain about license contract dependency, SO it is not a SIMULCAST, simulcast for me is live at same time airing in Japan!!! One Piece is one of this, already release!!!

Sorry for the noob questions, but i'm new here, and i don't know what the basics here, What is Simulcast? And Where i find all the animes from Simulcast, but with not delay, or the premium member have these advantages?

Many people aren't aware that with the exception of NHK, Japan doesn't have national networks. Anime (or any show) on stations typically don't air at the same time (or even the same day) on stations across Japan.

No one does a true anime "simulcast" (i.e., begins streaming at exactly the same time as it airs in Japan). All "simulcasts" are delayed by at least an hour after an airing in Japan. Whether that is the very first airing, or after some later station to air the series, or even the very last one depends on what the publisher is willing and able to grant to CR as part of the license.

Fansubs depend on pirated material, so they don't have to obey any law or rules other than whatever personal ethics the fansub group has. They will typically grab a raw from whatever the first available broadcast is and start to work. They would typically only delay a release if they knew an uncensored version was airing later on the premium AT-X channel. Some will even put out an episode before it even airs on Japan, if they can get their hands on it (such as via poor security on the server of a legit online streaming site).
