So did Crunchyroll just drop Encouragement of the Climb 2 or something?

They just randomly stopped putting out episodes a month ago.

The series info says that more episodes will be made available as soon as they can. So there's some kinda delay at the moment.

Something is going on but I don't think they outright dropped it.

If they dropped it, they would tell us. I hope

Oh yea almost forgot about that one. A lot of interesting anime this season I didn't even notice that they stopped updating it.

In a Reddit AMA they said there was an issue with finalizing the contract negotiation.

No idea what the issue might be, but they can't upload any more episodes until it's worked out.

So that's what's going on.

I read somewhere and I can't confirm it's true that there's some sort of issue with it broadcasting on a delay in a market in Japan and they don't want it available here before it's available there. Take that with a grain of salt. But since CR isn't giving details who knows what's really going on.

I just hope things get ironed out. I was really looking forward to S2.

For what it is worth, I don't recall CR ever dropping a simulcast once they started it.

I only recall one other time where they had to temporarily stop a simulcast after they started it. I believe in that case they also had to temporarily pull the episode they had already posted, something they haven't done with EoC 2.

They never really started the simulcast though, they just got the rights to the first episode so it didn't get pulled. Negotiations for the rest of the season seem to be stalled.

I bet they wish they hadn't put the first episode up now. Starting it really late looks better than the current situation.

I must say it is the strangest one we have seen in a long time.

Funimation's non-started shows were odd too but they got them all up so aside from the odd Psycho Pass Repeat episode 4 issue they are good now.

It is still showing in Japan, right? I mean, they didn't discontinue the series? Cause that would really suck.

I agree they should have delayed their launch of EoC2 until they got the rights to the whole season. Because as is right now they have a lot of miffed Encouragement of Climb fans basically going, "Oi! Where the hell are the episodes?!"

And I still think had the CEO not been asked about the show in his AMA CR wouldn't have given us any information on the situation....

It's one thing not to have it at all and then adding it later. But this is quite puzzling that CR would announce that they have it, air the first episode, and then suddenly not air any more without any real explanation. I don't know what exactly the holdup is, but I just hope that they do eventually bring it out, or at the very least let us know what is happening. This is unprecedented, I think.

It is basically unheard of for a late night anime to be "cancelled" as we understand it in the west. That is due to the difference in how their production is funded and their airing arranged.

Every episode has aired on time so far, 4 episodes to this point.
