Damn, we're almost on April and only 8 TBDs?

This looks bad...

Not really, the number of "?" boxes at the start is always a fraction of the final total.

I hope so. But I find strange that they haven't announced any simulcasts yet, I mean, new season is starting next week!

As noted by 27CansOfTuna, the season actually begins in earnest this week.

I saw while posting in another forum a moment ago that they've posted a couple of Manga 2.5 entries, but no true anime yet. They did list at least one entry for 4/1, however, with two more entries with pending dates.

I count 5 anime starting on 4/3 (US time), although one is a short form anime.

One of those is a "sure to be on CR" title that has already been announced as licensed by Sentai.

Did any of your shows simply wrap up their season and are going on break? Because CR really doesn't have any control over that. Plus I'm sure they would do everything in their power to keep from dropping a show mid series....

What shows did you lose? I'm curious...


Oh this isn't a sudden overnight loss. It just seems the the selections are less and less to my taste.

I enjoyed Blassreitier, Broken Blade, Total Eclipse, Another, Attack on Titan, Blast of Tempest, Otome Yokai Zakuro and so on.
More story, less pointless panty shots and angsty pseudo-romance.

Instead of all the sorta comedies and harem shows I'd love to see things like Jormungand, Black Lagoon and Durarara!!

This last season I watched Log Horizon, Strike the Blood and Naruto. And Naruto was just out of habit and Strike the Blood the need to watch something for my money.

Where are you located? Keep in mind that lineup page is now filtered by region.

Even for those of us in the US and Canada, the "Continuing Simulcasts" list is smaller than I recall it having been in a while.

That said, you might want to hit the "Contact Us" link at the bottom of any page, scroll down to the bottom, and check that your "Detected Country:" is correct (especially if any shows you normally could view seem to have become unavailable).



Oh it has the country right. They just don't seem to like the shows I would like.

Black Lagoon and Jormungand are both Funimation titles here in North America, which explains their lack of presence on CR.

It is difficult for a streaming only service like CR to compete for titles with a company that can at least dangle the prospect of a home video license. That is why I'm thankful CR has a relationship with Sentai, to put themselves on a bit more of an equal footing.

True, I was just using Black Lagoon and Jormungand as examples of the kind of shows I enjoy. They are past any simulcast anyway

And I am still supporting CR, but at the rate they're going the day may come that all the shows are panty shots and jiggling ta ta's. I won't be able to justify the cost for that...

I'm just sayin

The UK is not getting champion Joe either. Still one hopes the UK will get more than the 2.5 manga titles.
