Why is black butler on my tablet and xbox 360 sub titled in spanish, despite living in New Zealand where we speak english. It is the only show in my que that is doing this. Hope you can fix this before episode two as I really want to watch it on crunchyroll!

Thanks

I just checked with customer support. The English subs are coming later this week. If you look up the show page on the website it should say that, but I've no idea if that info appears anywhere in the apps--but regardless, that's why. The English subs aren't ready yet; will be later this week.

I recall Daisuki has a similar delay for their English subs for the first episode, so it appears this is on the Aniplex side.

FUNimation licensed the show, so that is also likely a factor.

Edit: Hate the way CR handles BBCode links...

Daisuki announced their license for the series 3 days before Funimation, however, so I doubt Funimation licensing the series caused the delay.

Unlike CR or Daisuki, Funimation also licensed the series for home video, so they are likely permitted to do their own subtitles instead of having to rely on Aniplex.
