It's called a "Non Disclosure Agreement" - the Japanese licensors are particular about when something can be announced

I'm actually baffled that people complain about how we don't know who licenses what series when we still have 3-4 weeks of the winter season left.

Just live in the moment ya'll.

Honestly, between CR and Funi, you get almost everything, so it doesn't bother me to find out what's where and when as long as it's current. The only exception to that is I do get irked when something gets orphaned. Eye patches are uncomfortable, and you don't see the full picture. I wish I would have known earlier that Funi would eventually pick up Jinsei and Ben-to. I would rather have not had to put up with those parrot claw scars on my shoulder...

As information asymmetries go this seems to be one which doesn't do a terribly huge amount of harm to the consumer, and its elimination could lead to all kinds of unnecessary backlash against firms for little more than having a deal fall through midway for perfectly reasonable...reasons.

I can decide to pay for my 3 mo anime pass the first week of april, instead of having to wait till two weeks into the season to see if the line-up would merit the $20

But CR won't start airing the shows until after they're announced. Doesn't it make more sense to hold onto your money and buy the 3 month pass after they've started airing shows you want to see, to make sure the pass lasts through them?

iono it might just be my ocd, but the seasons usually start on the first Thursday of January, April, July and October

but CR usually only has a few announcements out by then. so I have 2 options, re-up on April 1, the 3 mo will cover the whole season but i won't know what i'm paying for, or, or wait 1-2 weeks into the season to see their full line up, but then I'm behind 1-2 weeks and then my sub will cover the 1-2 weeks between season where few things are airing.

iono, i know how hard CR has to work to get the licenses especially with increased comp from Daisuki and FUNi, of late, and most of the time i just assume, if they haven't announced it it's because they haven't gotten the contract yet, not that they are witholding the info.

i'm prob just rambling, but w.e

Fewer threads asking "Will CR have XYZ anime?"

I don't know about that. As an example, I recall a number of people asking when CR was going to announce SAO II...weeks after it had been announced CR would have it.

Clarification of my post!!

I am happy that CR and Funimation do a great job of showing anime. Period !

But the process to get to that is just annoying by todays standards! It may be beyond CR and Funimation control

However with all those PV's annocements etc. you would think the anime Licensors would get the fans more interested by making an earlier annoucement. The whole businees model is flawed IMO.

There's a saying "The Early Bird Gets The Worm"

BTW waiting until the last second an anime might get overloked in the flood of annoucements! I hate clutter all at once really!

Also for fans that want to have a paid sub wont budge if they dont know what's going on. Again anime loses $$ How silly is that!

Hmmm now I actually get where you're coming from.

They probably haven't really thought about what you've proposed quite honestly, and if they have, they've probably just been like, "fuck it, I just wanna procrastinate and not think about it for a while", but I think what you brought up is a legitimate complaint.

They also won't announce, because they are still trying to keep you interested in this season.

Le_Dom I try and the MODS god did't nothing to him. I'm replying here because when I was going to respond he block messages or something,so I was unable to respond. I apologize for doing here but I feel that I need to respond to his threat. I also complain in the the Premium member only forum. I apologize for the display.

I am already checking on summer / fall anf TBA's. But I stiil watch winter shows way more than most. . I am just a serious anime fan just gotta know XD ! Instead of being negative I am postive and just thinking ahead!

Sorry for being an fan of anime! But I think the whole marketing of new anime is flawed. There are annocements all the time but it seems the fans take a back seat! Yes it's their money / decisions but a lot of us have subs to CR and Funi!

I want to lnow the dates of the summer / fall / TBA right now!! Just joking !
