Hey all Tiffako here!
Here's 2 more great titles coming to Crunchyroll this season! One anime title and one Japanese Drama title!

First up is the parallel universe train anime, Rail Wars!
Rail Wars! will airing every Saturday starting July 5th at 10pm and will be available in the following territories: North America.



In a parallel world where Japan has not privatized any of its railways, Naoto Takayama is an ordinary high school student who dreams of being a train conductor for the Japanese National Railways. He is assigned as to the Tokyo Central Railway Public Security Office. He is teamed up with Aoi Sakurai, a strong willed woman who excels in marksmanship and close combat, Haruka Koumi, who has an extraordinary memory, Sho Iwaizumi, a hot-blooded man who relies on brute force. From lost children to bombings, Naoto must lead this team, despite not having any special strength!

Jun Fukuyama (Lelouch from Code Geass) plays the main character Naoto, joined by Maaya Uchida (Rikka Takanashi from Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions!) as Haruka Koumi. Manami Numakura (Nanami from Brynhildr in the Darkness) will voice Aoi Sakurai and Satoshi Hino (Sai from Naruto Shippuden) plays Sho Iwaizumi.

Rail Wars! is directed by Yoshifumi Sueda (Knights of Sidonia), with Makoto Uno (The Qwaser of Stigmata) on character designs and chief animation direction and Yuushi Koshida (Kids on the Slope) on CGI direction for the Passione (Haitai Nanafa) production.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

NEXT UP is the Japanese drama "Is There a Vet in the House? ".

The show will broadcast every Friday starting July 4 at 11:00pm Pacific Time for premium members, with free members able to watch one week later.

Is There a Vet in the House? will be available in the following territories: USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Denmark, Finland, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, and South America.




Is There a Vet in the House? follows the story of veterinarian Shiba Kentaro who runs the Shiba Veterinary Clinic in Tokyo. Kentaro is earnest and kind and frequently falls in love with female pet owners and can’t help but meddle in his clients’ affairs.

The cast of Is There a Vet in the House? includes Takanori Jinnai as Kentaro, Miyu Yoshimoto as Kenatro’s adopted daughter Hinako, and Kentaro’s mother- Nurse Hanae, played by Yoko Nogiwa. Is There a Vet in the House? is written by Mitsuru Tanabe, who also wrote other live-action series such as Henshin (2014) and Dinner (2013).

No! I really wanted to see Rail Wars... (;_;) It seemed so interesting. Would there be like any possibility of an expansion of availability for this title? (>_<)

I expected Crunchyroll would get Rail Wars. Glad to see a title other than an idol or mech anime this season.

So there is a pretty significant chunk of this season's releases where if you're outside of NA there's an even bigger game of "Hope A Local Service picks It Or, Or Use Means Of Varying And Dubious Legality" than usual.

Seriously. So far as UK licenses go, this seems to be a pretty crappy season. Hopefully it'll be like previous season where the bulk of the widely available ones are announced at the end.
For me, though, I've often lost interest by that time if my tentpole shows aren't available.

Hell, I've only just finished Strike the Blood (marathoned in a week) bacuase although it was available over here, many of that season's other shows weren't, so (for whatever reasons...) I just wasn't on CR as much as I had been previously.

Come on, people. limiting your library potentially reduces the amount of views other shows get, as momentum is broken. That or people just find ways around, but feel irritated at having to do so.

Still is There A Vet In The House looks worth a shot. And I'll end up watching Rail Wars one way or another.
I'd just prefer not to have to resort to VPNs, Fansubs or substandard local streaming services.

This is from TBS, so I wouldn't hold my breath. Keep in mind this was a company that several seasons ago didn't even license anime for simulcast.

You can probably judge prospects for expansion by checking if any of the other titles from TBS are available in your country:

I would have thought Rail Wars would have been too niche to have trouble securing a license for the UK. Turning out to be a disappointing season line up so far in my birthday month
