What strikes me about the Seven Deadly Sins Netflix rumor is how last minute it is. Sidonia began in April of this year, but we learned Netflix had it back in December 2013. Netflix also has a history of announcing their "originals" well in advance of when they are available.

If it does come to pass, this could mean we'll have to add Netflix as a single series wildcard each season, much as Viz used to be.



See, it would be no problem if Netflix actually simulcasted their shows, but they don't even do that! I would have to wait months before being able to watch it legally. That's ridiculous! Why doesn't Netflix do simulcasts like Hulu, CR, and Funi? Is it really that hard?

And if they're so against simulcasting, then couldn't they make a deal with CR letting them be able to have it as its airing and then once it's done airing, they could take it off so Netflix could have it all for themselves? I mean CR took off episodes of AoT as soon as Netflix got a hold of it. Can't they do something similar? I find it so stupid that once Netflix gets their "original" series and they just let it sit until its done airing. What's the good in that? Even more people are just going to go to illegal sites while they just horde it, do they really think people are going to wait until it's actually on Netflix? Pffffff they're dreaming. Might as well give it to CR for a short amount of time so at least people will be watching it legally before Netflix puts it on their service.

But.. but.. But.. That's logical thinking. And as much as we'd like to imagine we're dealing with rational actors. We're clearly not when you also consider how often regions get left in the dark for legal options because Funimation or someone else got the license or simply because of some other reason.

So to see Netflix do something like this over and over again is hardly a surprise. It's just a sad matter of fact when you consider how these people run things.

Where the heck is Amagi Brilliant Park???? It's the best thing to come out of KyoAni in like... ever! Best KyoAni show ever. I hope it is just a crummy TBS latecast... though even that sucks. I shall continue to watch it first elsewhere if so... then I will return here to see it in glorious HD. Man... great stuff. Would be a real shame if it isn't simulcasted.

It is all down to different expectations. Your typical Netflix viewer expects to be able to binge watch a show, not have it doled out one episode per week. That's why even the shows that are produced exclusively for Netflix get dumped onto Netflix a season at a time instead of being posted a few episodes at a time as production as completed.

The AoT episodes getting put on hiatus at CR had nothing to do with Netflix, but instead them airing on Toonami.

Akatsuki no Yona that makes 3 of the series on my wish list. 50% means the glass is half full right?

I'll definitely check out "Akatsuki no Yona"~~ (Along with "Ookami Shoujo to Kuro Ouji" and maybe Yowapeda II.)

...And I hope that the last announcement is "Kaito Kid/Magic Kaito 1412".

Even though it probably isn't ;~;.
