Usually shortly (a day or two) before the first episode airs, unless our Japanese partners want to release that information earlier.

Often the first titles we will likely learn about are the ones licensed by Aniplex of America, as they tend to announce those titles ahead of CR. While they could stick with announcing early (e.g., this week), they too could be tempted to wait until AX, as nothing they are likely to have will premiere before then.


One item to keep in mind is that beginning of the summer season coincides with Anime Expo (July 2-5), so a multiple companies (not just CR), would likely hold several announcements for there if timing permits.

There are two series that premiere on July 1 (US time), so those are the only ones that would "need" to be announced before then.

One is the short form anime Okusama ga Seito Kaichou! (My Wife Is the Student Council President!). Not all short form anime get a simulcast (although I suspect this one will), but they are more often late announcements than standard length anime.

The other is Gangsta, which I would expect an announcement for before the premiere; most likely on Monday, June 29 or Tuesday, June 30. Keep in mind that announcement might not come from CR, as Funimation could snag that one.


As an additional bit of info, I note that last summer CR changed over the lineup page from spring to summer on June 24.

Don't expect the announcements to come all in the same day, (or even in the same week, for that matter) is all we're saying... For the past couple announcement cycles, you might have a glance at this thread to see how they stretch it out over time. (Funi does the same sort of hype-building thing)

As per my earlier response, Aniplex of America was the first to announce streaming titles for this season:
http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2015-06-24/aniplex-usa-to-simulcast-classroom-crisis-charlotte-wagnaria-3-anime/.89667

In summary, the following were confirmed for CR:
Classroom Crisis
Charlotte
Durarara!!×2 Ten
Wagnaria!!3 (Working!!!)

God Eater
was confirmed as a Daisuki exclusive.


The following implies CR will not have Gangsta for anywhere except French-speaking territories (which probably means Funimation has it):
