As long as there's more of Inuyasha's female doppelganger I'm game.

So much confusion right now.

Dog Days was one of the reasons I initially registered then later got a sub on CR since it was an exclusive to them at the time(it still is I think).

Well in the end i got surprised.. But not quite in the manner hoped for. Seems pretty odd though. Second show that has less territories than previous seasons. I wonder what is up with that

I wonder about that. It is extremely rare for CR not to have US rights for anything. But, it is showing that on the series page. Can we get an official CR management explaination here. I find it discerning that one of the biggest titles is blacked out from probably the biggest market.

It has become less rare in the past year for US to pick up a show that has no US (or English-speaking country) rights, but those had not been sequels to titles that had previously been available here, and had all been titles licensed by Funimation here.

What make this even stranger is that the first two series weren't available in Asia, meaning the people that can see the new series won't have any access on CR to the earlier two, and visa versa. The whole thing is just plain weird.

That reminds me. Didn't the same thing also happened with Broken Blade (TV)? It is available on CR, but it has no English subs yet no NA Distributor picked it up. What happened to that?

I really think that the problem lies with someone in the production committee blocking DD outside Asia (similar to what happened to Ro-Kyu-Bu). Outside of that context, it doesn't make sense for CR to deliberately buy only rights for Asia given that they have low user base here.

Broken Blade (TV) was a bit of a special case, because probably 95% of the content was the same as the movies, which Sentai already holds the license to. Unless they wanted to license it, is unlikely the publisher could license it here, as it could have been seen as a violation of their contract. The same thing would have occurred with the Psycho-Pass re-edit if Funimation hadn't licensed it (which I suspect they did only because it performed well for them, and they probably got a package deal with the then upcoming second series and movie, both of which they licensed at the same time).


While I certainly don't disagree with the possibility of it being someone on the production committee playing a veto card on the licensing outside of Asia (I've even noted that as a possibility), I doubt it was anything similar to the request to Sentai for the return of the home video rights to Ro-Kyu-Bu. In that case it was actually the licensor (Warner Brothers), no doubt prompted by some Warner exec that saw a potential problem with the content. While unlikely, I could certainly see someone going on a tirade about the content being "pedo-pandering" (despite being tame in that area compared to other series I could point to), tying it to Warner Brothers, and then going on a campaign to publicize that and harm sales of their other mainstream content.

While Dog Days isn't devoid of fanservice, I think anyone would have to be rather sensitive to find it objectionable. The closest link between any big company that operates in the west that is associated with the show is that Aniplex is owned by Sony, and few people (especially outside the anime community) seem to know that.

Song rights probably (though that's stupid reason)? Even if some NA publisher bids for this, I think CR has strong relationship with existing NA publishers like Sentai, NISA and Pony Canyon that they'll let CR simulcast this if one of them got it.. This one doesn't seem to be a typical candidate for Viz anime and Media Blasters is deader than disco. If FUNi is aiming for this, then they shouldn't have concluded their Winter line-up yet. Also, its kinda weird that Aniplex of America doesn't have rights for this seeing that Aniplex of Japan is the one who holds the rights for this show.

I think CR might have lost the rights to both the first and second season as well in areas outside of that which you listed. Dog Days is now showing the infamous "This title is not available in your region", though I can still click and watch the episodes just fine.

Maybe that's one of the reasons Dog Days is seeing a surge in popularity? People are rushing to watch it in case 1st & 2nd seasons get pulled sometime soon?

That seems to be due to the show page not being able to distinguish between different region rights for different seasons. That message was there from the moment the show was announced.

It also appears even for someone in Singapore, for which episodes for Dog Days 3 appear.

I enjoyed Seasons 1 and 2, but sadly Season 3 isn't available to the UK so I can't see it.
