What I don't like is the very liberal use of the word "Simulcast". I don't consider a couple of days or a week as very simultaneous. Sure, it's still from the current season but with quite a long delay. My opinion is that "Simulcast" should only be used for series which air max. 24h after it's broadcast in japan.

After which broadcast in Japan?

Unlike the US, shows don't premiere on a network and then get shown in the same time slot all across Japan.

As an example, here are the airing schedules for the shows announced in this topic:

No "English speaking" countries sadly also means no English subtitles

That seems to depend on the publisher. Reportedly Ping Pong had English subtitles available, but none of the series that listed Showgate as the publisher did.

I believe Tokyo ESP is Kadokawa/Media Factory, so we shall see.



Unfortunately I was right, CR doesn't have English subtitles.

Probably because Funimation has the rights for the U.S.

i clicked the http://www.crunchyroll.com/tokyo-esp link at it says "Sorry, due to licensing limitations, videos are unavailable in your region." so idk i assumed it meant crunchyroll wouldn't be streaming it here

Correct crunchy will not be streaming it in the U.S because funimation has the rights to stream it in the U.S

The countries it is available to on CR are in parts of Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa (as listed in the announcement message in this topic). The reason being that while Funimation only streams and distributes to the US and Canada, their actual licenses often cover a larger swath of the world.

In some cases they re-license these, such as to Madman for Australia and New Zealand. Funimation neither streams or distributes in Australia, and Madman does nothing in North America, so they aren't competition (unlike CR).

Funimation has streaming. Also be warned about episode 1. The producers decided to use the climax of part 1 of the manga in episode 1, but make the whole episode seem like Gai-Rei-Zero. We see very little of the characters from Tokyo ESP in episode 1. The whole promotion was one big lie. I'm not going to dump this show from episode 1. But it was a poor mistake for producers to just make episode 1 be about gai-rei-zero characters in the world of Tokyo ESP.

This will turn people off. Anyways I'm hoping episode 2 is very different. This is what you expect from Xebecc. They never do anything right with their adaptations!

Why didn't English speaking countries get Tokyo ESP?!!! This was my second most anticipated anime series. This is CRAP!! How are English speakers supposed to watch this show?!

[edit] Thanks guys, I understand Funimation swooped in and worked us over now!

Funimation hasn't picked up nearly the amount of summer titles as crunchyroll has. And the only similar title's that both share is Free! eternal summer and Fairy tail. Regardless I know Funi will pick up some shows that Crunchy won't so i make it easy on myself and subscribe to both.

3 Countries? I think your counting thing is broken, its UK & Ireland, Australia & New Zealand, the 11 countries of South America, Mexico, the 7 countries of Central America, which is 22 ... look at the .rss, there are 35 country codes altogether, so seems like 13 Caribbean countries as well.

And that was the point: UK/Eire, Oz/NZ, and Latin America and the Caribbean all sometimes miss series that North America gets, so picking up a license that is available for those three regions with 22+ countries total helps give them something to watch while North Americans are watching something blocked in their country.


and srsly Tokyo Esp too i rather change to funimation cause it seems that they have a lot more this season

If you really like the ones that Funimation licenses, which is always fewer than Crunchyroll but normally some of the most hyped ones of the season, you could well subscribe to Funimation.

That would sure encourage Funimation to not share licenses with Crunchyroll in North America whenever it can possibly avoid it.

Probably because Funimation has the rights for the U.S.

For people who weren't looking out for the shows that had this last season ... it used to be that Crunchyroll mostly got series that were not licensed to sell discs in North America. But over time, Sentai, Aniplex of America, and NIS America started using Crunchyroll for streaming, and when they did, that left mostly Funimation and Viz licenses that were blocked on Crunchyroll in the US and Canada.

Now, Viz doesn't license many simulcasts in a season, but Funimation has started simulcasting more ... so a big series that is blocked in the US is normally because Funimation got it. Crunchyroll still gets lots a anticipated series, because of the relationship with Sentai, Aniplex, and (once in a while) NIS America.

What Crunchyroll started doing last season was finding ways to license packages of shows for different European countries and the Middle East that were blocked in North America by Funimation licenses. Tokyo ESP is just more of that pattern.

Black Butler: Circus is something new, where for some reason Crunchyroll was able to talk the licensor to let Crunchyroll have the stream where Funimation normally has the rights but doesn't use them. If that starts to happen more often, then that would be great news for the 30+ countries who keep getting blocked by Funimation, even though Funimation doesn't stream to their countries.
