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.

Summer 2015

06/25/2015: 12


Snapshot at 7:13 PM EDT 06/25/2015

Apparently the initial number of boxes was 9 but was bumped to 12 within a couple of hours (and before I got home from work and grabbed a screenshot).

06/29/2015: 14


Snapshot at 8:16 PM EDT 06/29/2015

I currently count a total of 47 anime titles premiering this summer. Of those, Daisuki is currently known to have 2 exclusives (God Eater and the second cour of The IDOLM@STER: Cinderella Girls), and it appears Funimation will have at least 20 summer simulcasts (including 5 continuing simulcasts), meaning they would snag at least 15 new titles, 13 of which they announced on June 29.

While there could be some titles shared between Funimation and CR, I wouldn't expect more than a couple of titles, and with at least one or two titles inevitable to have no simulcast, CR appears to have a "hard cap" of 30, with the final tally likely being around 25-26 anime titles.

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.
