As each season there inevitably appear concerns from some people about the number of mystery or "?" boxes CR's lineup page starts with, I've decided to keep a log in this topic. It will note how many boxes were listed on specific dates, so that this topic can be used to assuage any worries.

If you note any changes in the number of boxes that aren't reflected here, feel free to post a message. As always, any other comments are welcome, and please point out any apparent errors you see.

Please note that as the lineup page is geo-filtered, any filled boxes for series that are not available in the United States (such as Selector Infected WIXOSS for the spring 2014 season) will not be reflected in the box counts and snapshots.

Spring 2015

03/29/2015: 10


Snapshot at 12:29 AM EDT 03/30/2015

04/01/2015: 15
Snapshot at 3:28 PM EDT 04/01/2015

04/04/2015: 21
Snapshot at 11:59 AM EDT 04/04/2015

NOTE: The "To be announced March 31" box on the April 1 and April 4 snapshots should have been occupied by Ace of the Diamond Second Season. Crunchyroll corrected this error before the April 6 snapshot was taken.

04/06/2015 (earlier): 25
Snapshot at 6:36 PM EDT 04/06/2015

04/06/2015 (later): 27

Snapshot at 7:07 PM EDT 04/07/2015

Snapshot at 6:36 PM EDT 04/09/2015

04/10/2015: 32
Snapshot at 6:56 PM EDT 04/10/2015

05/20/2015: 33

Snapshot at 5:00 PM EDT 05/20/2015

Please note that while CR had already announced 4 series before the spring lineup page was posted, those series would be absent from the lineup page until regions are announced for said series. (The lineup page is region encoded, so a series with no regions assigned would be visible to no one, but would take away a "?" box).

With the simulcast announcements apparently complete for the time being, it appears my original prediction of the final tally was very close:

The number of new simulcasts should be substantially higher than winter, with the total number of new anime simulcasts likely to be around 30, with almost half of those being sequels to series CR has had in the past.

It should be 1 more because Selector Infected WIXOSS isn't on your lineup.

He lives in the States and SIW isn't available there, ergo not on his page.

Thanks. I grabbed a snapshot and updated the initial message.

I really to to look for a free app that will allow me to capture or "print" the full length of the web page to an image. As I currently have to shrink the image to fit in the visible portion of screen to use the Print Screen key, it is beginning to get rather small.

In Firefox you can do that by opening the Developer Toolbar (Shift + F2) and then typing "screenshot --fullpage"

Thanks. I tried both.

The Webpage Screenshot extension is easier to use, but has one drawback: When I select edit to save a page, the spellchecker in Chrome underlines all the text it doesn't recognize with a red line. As such, I have to disable spellcheck to get a clean snapshot.

It would be nice if there were a Firefox extension that would place a button at the top right of the browser to invoke the functionality of the "screenshot --fullpage" command of the Firefox Developer Toolbar.


04/08/2014:

I updated the box count and snapshot again. We currently stand at boxes for 33 new simulcasts, and I suspect we are nearing the end. I would be pleasantly surprised to see it exceed 35 total.


04/09/2014:

Color me pleasantly surprised, then. We now stand at 37 total boxes for new simulcasts.

I thought they had added boxes and didn't count the rows carefully. In fact, it was just Ping Pong removing one from the US view. I've changed today's entry to a single listing with a count of 36.

That still beats my expectation of 35.

UPDATE 04/22/2014:

I posted what will likely be the final update until near the end of May. The final tally (from a US perspective) was 37 new simulcasts, with 34 being anime.
