I was just wondering if anyone else realized it was missing from the alphabetical list. What happened to it?

Missing? Was it ever licensed by Crunchyroll? CR does not get every anime.

Sadly was taken down due to licensing about a year ago...

Yeah, it was removed due to streaming rights having expired. I marathoned it just before it was removed. Sadly, streaming rights are not forever, and this show wasn't exactly popular enough to renew the rights.

It makes me sad. Sure the ending was not the best but after sitting on it for about two weeks because I had fond memories of it, but when I logged on it was gone. Thanks for the answers

it was a fun show but I don't blame CR for not renewing.




came for the yuri, stayed for the trap. I was very pleased.

As others have said, it was removed.

Ah, memories. I'm glad I was able to rewatch it before it left. I was so sad to see it go.

But I suppose that's one of the drawbacks of streaming - every so often you have to say goodbye to some titles.

As a side note, I was just listening to the OST from Sasameki Koto the other day. It's the only anime I know to have music with a very "impressionist" feel. I don't know if it can be rigorously defined as impressionistic, but it always gave me that vibe. It felt as though it belonged in the same category as Debussy, Ravel, and the other great impressionists. But as I said, that's just a side note.

It's a shame it had to be taken down. It's one of my favourite shows. Funny, sweet, super-lovely music and some beautiful scenery.

Sadly, I heard about this too late so I haven't seen it (and there's a good chance I won't). It looks like I'd have enjoyed it.

I wonder how renewing streaming rights works and how easy it would be. I guess it'd be much the same process as streaming other "catalogue" titles. Hopefully CR will get an opportunity to get it back cheaply and I can watch it some day.
