The Search function is not working for many (perhaps all) of the new series. The auto-fill in the search bar is able to find them, but when search is clicked directly no video results are returned. Some examples of this are MEKAKUCITY ACTORS and selected infector WIXOSS. Another instance is that the 4th season of Cardfight!! Vanguard does not show up in the result set though the first three seasons do. I noticed that the PS3 app search function has the same issue.

Hmm.. Wixoss isn't available in my region, so if I use the search function on it, the page that I go to has no videos, just the unavailable message. But Mekaku City Actors and Cardfight season 4 are showing up if I click them from the search bar. This happens from any page you're attempting the search function from, right? It doesn't seem to matter what page I use it on.

Do these links show the videos for you, or look like the search page result?

(I don't have a PS3, all I could try was on the PC, using Chrome under Windows 8)

He meant that if you don't click the auto complete dropdown and actually search for the show none of the episodes show up, even for people who should see them. I'll pass it on to support and see if they can add it to the list of things wrong with the search.

Ahhh.. that'll teach me to read more closely! After not seeing Wixoss videos, I thought that was the problem and jumped to conclusions. Sorry, dfz!

Right, thanks for clarifying and sorry that I wasn't as clear as I should be. I am able to access those pages just fine, it's just the search function that has problems. It doesn't particularly bother me personally, but I thought it was worth reporting.
