J-drama simulcasts don't seem to be be hrting CR any, and with situations like CR having home video rights to Free! Season 1, it may be better to convince Funimation that is it mutually beneficial to share simulcasts and keep developing relations with YTV, NTV and Fuji TV(the licensers were the J-Dramas come from) so those licensors also go with non-exclusive streaming rights so that CR and Funi both get it.

I would of course like to see more catalog anime come from the same sources that catalog J-drama comes from.

My humble thanks to the CR staff for this seasons licencing. Especially Fafner:Exodus, definitely my most anticipated series for this season. If the good folks at Xebec have been keeping up their good work, this series will be a surprise for many, in a good way
Currently re-watching the original series on Blu-ray for the third time in anticipation for the new season.

Or they can get what they do because people with different tastes support their drama acquisitions as well?

From my viewpoint, they've done a pretty good job at getting solid titles that matter and leaving Funimation with the scraps.

I wasn't expecting Koufuku Graffiti to be picked up by any streamer, so this is a welcome surprise.

One of these days TBS will agree to an international streaming license outside of just North America and when they see the results are going to facepalm ... "what were we thinking when we kept turning down requests to expand our license region?"

WHAT money? Its not like Crunchyroll is run by pulling gold coins from a treasure chest Crunchyroll's engineers stole from a dragon after they put it to sleep by convincing it to marathon Naruto. The "money to license" shows comes from the people watching the shows. Crunchyroll not licensing dramas does not magically double the number of anime subscribers or double the number of views from free members ... it just means that the anime revenue has to cover more overhead expense, because there are fewer revenue streams to use to cover those overheads.

In short, if Crunchyroll does not get the drama licenses, then Crunchyroll does not get the viewership that the drama licenses attracts, so Crunchyroll does not earn the money used to bid for the drama licenses.

I think part of the problem with this, is TBS series tend to be sub-licenses from Sentai, as Sentai is an R1 company whose region exists for US/Canada distribution only, they tend to think along those lines.
Also of note, Sentai TBS releases have been having BD holdbacks for a little while now, which is why they've been releasing TBS series on DVD only and BD at a later time when they are allowed to.

Yes, it seems likely. While Sentai seems to have been willing to pass on requests for broader streaming rights, based on the expansion of the rights for Sentai sublicenses from other licensors ... it seems unlikely that Sentai presses the case as hard as Crunchyroll would do if negotiating directly.

Well actually because of there being no Black Friday deal this year, the people who are paying for a premium membership actually want drama. They aren't stealing from the anime pot, but there is a clear drama pot now.

Being TBS, it's likely that expanding the streaming rights beyond US/Canada would also expand the cost of the license beyond what Sentai is willing to pay for.
Remember, TBS was one of the licensors completely unwilling to stream on CR until relatively recently. Before that, Sentai was relegated to exclusive streaming on TheAnimeNetwork.

Personally I want more Anime (eg. TBS titles) and JDrama available in the UK on CR
However, separate announcements would be good. Though there are less JDrama announcements than anime ones, and I think anime fans should try JDrama too!
