Is this another glitch or is it permanent?
The past few weeks it's been available for everyone as soon as it was released, and now it's back to a week delay?

I still really don't want to pay a monthly fee in order to keep up with a single anime...

For SAO II, there is a legal alternative:
http://www.daisuki.net/anime/detail/SwordArtOnlineII

Frankly, if you are a free viewer, and watching on a computer (or iOS device), Daisuki looks like a better deal. Sign up for a free account and log in and you get HD (vs. 480p max if you don't log in), and from the times I've used it, they have only a single pre-roll commercial.

Just to add onto what TheAncientOne said. If it does turn into a thing where it is delayed a week on here. Due to a hacking incident with the show Daisuki does delay their release 24-72 hours. (Maybe it's less then that now and it's why its back to premium for 1 week here.)
So don't overly panic if next weekend you go there and be all like where is it then? :)

Also TheAncientOne what ads do you get there? I've used it a couple of times and I have never seen a ad I turned off adblock before using it too. I felt guilty for using it when no ad or anything appeared.

I usually get an ad for an anime-based game (either DBZ or Naruto), and if I view multiple episodes in one sitting, some episodes are completely ad-free.

Clearly they are losing money, and it seems to finally be having an effect, as here we are almost a month into the season, and they announced no new simulcasts. Perhaps they are just sitting out a season while they determine what to do, but I can't help but feel they are nearing the end of the road.

Until that happens, however, I say make use of it.
