Yo could you guys explain why CR picked up Seasons one and two of Dog Day's But NOT season three in a pod cast! I would listen to that just to know why it was skipped this season! same with other skips or misses.

They did pick it up, just not for anywhere outside of several countries in Asia. It is doubly odd in that the region they got it for were one omitted for the first two series.


Due to the "Don't bite the [publisher] hand that feeds you effect", I doubt we'd ever get anything more than "We weren't able to license it for other regions", which is so obvious it shouldn't need to be stated.

If it was because someone on the production committee this time around was anti-streaming, or they wanted too much for other regions vs. how it performed on CR, it might be seen as unwise to make that known as it would be akin to throwing the other party under the bus. If it were licensed by someone else, CR might be able to mention it, but if that were the case, we would have probably known by now unless a non-disclosure agreement was in place (which means CR itself would have been told nothing other than the license was unavailable).

^There could be a lot reasons why Dog Days'' is only available in certain parts of Asia but, how it performs on CR probably isn't one them. Anticipation was really building up before the news broke that the viewing regions would be so limited.

Even now Dog Days seems to be enjoying a viewing surge even though its unavailable in a lot places.

Maybe the fact that no US company has optioned it for DVD/BD release got the price upped to high for CR to handle?

Specifically, I said "...or they wanted too much for other regions vs. how it performed on CR...". That doesn't imply it performed badly, but rather that the publisher may have asked for more money than was justified.

Imagine for example, that for English speaking regions the publisher was asking 3 times the minimum guarantee paid for the second series, but CR's own accounting showed that only 1.5 times the original MG for that series had been paid out based on views. Something like that would make it a very high probability CR would lose money on the series. They might be willing to risk going a bit above for member satisfaction, but not that much.

Yeah, it wouldn't be the 1st time a Japanese publisher over estimated what their property was worth compared to what a licensee thinks they can make out of it. I guess one of my hopes is the price goes down once it's not considered a simulcast show and the regions get expanded when that happens.

I just don't understand the total disclaimer in the beginning. How can this be an "official" podcast from CR if it starts off saying the views and opinions does not represent CR or its affiliates? I would suggest tweaking it and add "does not necessarily" that gives them leeway to say what they want but not sound like we're tuning into something completely divorced from CR.

That bit about Zatch Bell getting more views than expected was interesting.
