So recently today, I tried watching Aldnoah Zero on my Playstation 3, my default language is set to English. All other simulcasted Animes are subbed in English on my queue except for Aldnoah Zero. Watching it on my PS3 and on my phone, changes the subtitles to Spanish, but it's in English on my PC. Any help or explanation?

I'm also having the same problem on iPad. It seems kinda weird that it works fine on PC.

Same here, both Xbox 360 and PS3 are showing Spanish subtitles. I'm assuming they use a different source than the website and deployed the wrong one.

Same here. When the PS3 app is actually working, I get Spanish subs. No bueno.

I'm having the same problem on my 3rd gen AppleTV. Any subtitle option I pick always has the stream showing Spanish subs instead of English.

For some reason, the Spanish subs are often encoded before the English sub encodes are finished. Give it about an hour, and English subs should be available for whatever device you're using.

Well here's the thing, why does it show Spanish Subbed for consoles and mobile devices but show English default for PC? Makes no sense.


UPDATE : I finally played back on English Sub, after an hour or two of watching other Anime.

PCs have soft subs, so only the resolution differences need different files. Devices must be hard-encoded for each combination of language + resolution, so they take longer. Can't say why Spanish would finish first, though...
