I said it before and I'll say it again. Japan seems to like refighting WWII in anime even if it is disguised,


It looks harmless. These shows does not reflect how the Japanese view WWII.

And how exactly do you know that? The announcements have just started and most of the series have not aired yet. From what I understand, only three full TV series have aired so far - Tantei Opera Milky Holmes TD, Tsukimonogatari, and Kantai Collection in a special pre-air.

CR will announce more.

If CR doesn't, who would?

Assuming you are in the US or Canada, the only other competition is Daisuki. They have Tsukimonogatari, which they've already announced they have a 30 day exclusive on (which is tantamount to say Aniplex will make it available on CR and Hulu after that). They also have The [email protected]: Cinderella Girls, which they haven't said is an exclusive, although only Daisuki is listed on the page for the series.

While they could always say, "We're not done yet" (they've done it at least one season last year), Funimation has only one more simulcast slot to fill. If that doesn't go to Fafner: Dead Aggressor - Exodus, I'll be surprised.


Out of curiosity, what were the other 7 you planned on watching?



Just because Funi doesn't get them, doesn't mean CR will or vice versa. Last season, no one in NA got Amagi Brilliant Park, Gundam Reconguista in G, and Magic Kaito (CR only now got Magic Kaito). Who's to say the same won't happen again?
The seven I plan to watch are Koufuku Graffiti, Miritari, Falcom Gakuen, Kancolle, Yatterman, Junketsu no Maria, and Jojo (which I know CR will get).

@Stark
I don't know that. But there is always the chance.

The seven I plan to watch are Koufuku Graffiti, Miritari, Falcom Gakuen, Kancolle, Yatterman, Junketsu no Maria, and Jojo (which I know CR will get).

Every season seems to have at least one "Why didn't anyone simulcast that" series that seems to have no good answer for why; Amagi Brilliant Park was last season's. AFAIK, even internationally, the only service streaming it was Nico Nico (within Japan).

I wouldn't rule out Gundam Reconguista in G, as it is still ongoing, and the fact that it was licensed for simulcast in Australia and New Zealand by Madman's AnimeLab, and Animax in the UK means they aren't adverse to streaming it. Frankly, I have to wonder if they simply were asking too high a price for the market here.


Back more on topic, for last season I count 8 titles (of 51) that haven't been simulcast by anyone in the US, and 4 of those were short form anime. That is an over an 84% simulcast "success" rate, so your outlook is rather pessimistic.


From your list, I would say Falcom Gakuen is in doubt, as the original series a year ago wasn't simulcast. Also, for shorts, CR is close to the only hope. I can count the shorts Funimation has simulcast on one hand with fingers left over, and I don't recall any other service that has simulcast any.

Miritari is a bit iffy, due to being short. At one point, CR went heavy into those, but I get the impression too many viewers automatically reject them out of hand. I also think free viewers are less likely to view them because of the commercial:content ratio. That can result in lower viewership, which means CR might not be able to offer a minimum guarantee the publisher would find acceptable. Frankly, I think more people need to give them a try, but that's another conversation.

Kancolle is already a go, and as you mentioned, JoJo is a sure thing.

I don't see any issues with the remainder.

I think this had to do with the US license still being in negotiations at the time.
Sunrise said at NYCC that they hoped to make an announcement there, but the license still wasn't finalized.

Still hoping that the magical boy anime will be announced to be streamed by CR all over. Please CR.

Funimation's paid mobile apps are primarily intended for non-subscribers that want a little more content. The free version of their mobile apps works fine for subscribers.

All using the paid app does if you are subscriber is get rid of the display ad on the menu screen that the free app has.
