I'm curious if anyone on here has ever remembered this anime. Understandable if you all haven't, since it only aired in Japan and it's over a decade old.

Truth be told I actually have the official DVD's of all the episodes; and since Crunchyroll doesn't have the show in their database, I was thinking about sending them to the website, since they will have better use for them then me.

Looks like it has a fair mix of animation styles.

CR can only stream anime they've bought licenses for, so sending them things is ineffectual.

Really? That's a bummer. How much does it cost to buy the license?

As of 2-3 years ago, reportedly around $1-2K per episode for simulcasts (which sounds low, but I dunno).

Actual distribution licenses can be huge depending on the show.

But CR licenses through broadcast distributors, they basically catch licenses while they're going through the system on their way to TV. They have some catalog titles, but it's not a big part of the working simulcast-based business model.

And even if they did have ready access to older shows, if they're niche they'd arguably be a relatively poor use of funds. It takes work on the Japanese side to make a series available for streaming too, so it requires investment on both sides.

Both ends of which have limited resources to allocate.

For some reason I thought this thread was about Sohryuuden, released in the US as Legend of the Dragon Kings. I thought, "only a decade old? Nah, older than that.."

Then I googled the exact title. Very different anime.

I should add that premium members can recommend stuff to CR, whether it's new/old or anything.

So if you would like them to look into the possibility of licensing this you totally can.

I think I remember this anime only in the UK they called it Legend of the Four Kings. There's probably clips of it and odd episodes on Youtube.

I'd LOVE it if CrunchyRoll would add this anime. I really need to watch it, and I haven't found any place where I can ^^;

I wish Funimation had done a gag dub of this.
