This. I am only watching like 13 new shows this season, and Funimation already has 6 of them. I'm afraid CR won't get the others

If CR doesn't, who would? ...


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?

Though if "the same happens again", and three of the series in the season don't get licensed, that is not the same as Crunchryoll failing to get any of the others, which is one way to read what you wrote.

If you are afraid that Crunchyroll might not get one or two of the others ... well, it might not. For me, if Crunchyroll has three "must watch" series in a season, then between backlog and "will watch as long as I'm here anyway" series, I'm in, but other people might have higher thresholds.

I hope Kancolle is for UK/EU. The other announcements that aren't don't bother me that much since I didn't want to watch them anyway. I'm used to at least one series I want to watch being on Funimation too (in this case, Assassination Classroom).

KanColle is exactly the type of title Animax have been targeting in the UK. CR will almost certainly not get it.

Hooray for KanColle! I don't wanna go to funi for the sole reason that their app costs extra on top of their sub...

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.





From the little bit I've used their free version, the descriptions in the Itunes store, and Funi's description in their video (go to 6:40 for comparison table), all I seem to be missing using the free app as a subscriber is:

1) Still get some banner ads on menus
2) No "favorites" list.
3) No in-app news feed (kicks you to their blog on the web)


All the content is available. HD is available.

Sentai in the past has been perfectly willing to carve out slices of whatever English Speaking Countries territory they pick up if there is a bidder for those rights, so it seems a possibility.

OTOH, it is a division of Sony, so an expectation of fine-grained rationality may be dissapointed ... internal company politics can create results that are baffling from the outside.

TheAncientOne 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.


It's also being streamed by Anime Limited via Vimeo and available on Viewster, in case anyone in the UK is interested in watching it, but aren't currently subscribing to Animax.

Looking forward to watching Season 2 of Aldnoah Zero once I've finished the 1st season
So now the UK announcements have started (waiting to see if KanColle will be available...)
Hopefully there will be some JDrama announcements too..

Aldnoah Zero and Absolute Duo so far on my list. Kamisama Hajimemashita is not available in my area, and the rest so far look boring.

CR doesn't have Absolute Duo for the US either. (Your profile lists your location in North Dakota).

Unless you've moved to the Middle East, north Africa, or "non-English" Europe, you'll need to resort to Funimation (or possibly Hulu) to view it legally (where you can also view Kamisama Hajimemashita [Kamisama Kiss]).

it seems like CR paid attention to the "what upcoming anime you interested in surveys at conventions.

Great Job on Kancolle,

Now just to get the Detective Conan (Case Closed ) back logs of episodes.
all though the 700+ episodes would probably fry CR servers lol.
(fun fact if you watched every single Detective Conan (Case Closed) in a row it would take you 17 straight days not including the specials and movies)
