There's a Scary image on Funimation:



And it's accompanied by the message: "Dive into our biggest simulcast season yet! Summer announcements are almost here, stay tuned! - See more at: http://www.funimation.com/blog/#sthash.8LH8NuHm.dpuf "

I hope that isn't the actual number of shows they're going to get, because that's a scary amount of boxes...

So let's see, they're likely to get Prison School, DBS (Or Dragon Ball:Super), Gangsta, Aquarion Logos, and maybe A Boring World Where the Concept of 'Dirty Jokes' Doesn't Exist. They'll also probably get one of the two Monster girl harem shows ( Monster Musume/ Jitsu wa Watashi wa) , and possibly Overlord and God Eater.

Even with my Guesses, that's still a lot of empty boxes, and they did step up their game last winter season, and got a respectful amount last spring... Still, there's no way they're getting that many shows unless most boxes are shorts.

Still, quite a scary image for those that don't dual subscribe (which includes me)


God Eater is a no-go. Aniplex USA already has that.

They will however most likely be getting DBS, Gangsta, Aquarion and Overlord.

Ok, here's my guess, one of the girls is the evil one, but towards the end of the series she'll be like "Oh, I can't help it I've fallen in love with MC-kun and don't want to be evil anymore." Then they save the world together

That's a truly horrifying image for us Brits. FUNimation has a habit of buying UK & Ireland streaming rights to their titles, and then locking us out of their streams.

If it is accurate, I suppose we'll have to hope they don't get UK & Irish rights for them and/or get their crap together and start simulcasting to the UK...

When a company gets licensing on an anime, does that literally mean that other companies aren't allowed to get it as well?

Sometimes yes, sometimes no. It all depends on the details of the license agreement they negotiate.

For example there are some shows on Funimation that are also on CR for the US and other places (e.g. One Piece, and, I think, Yona of the Dawn).

However, there are also shows on Funimation that aren't available on CR in the US or Canada, but are available on CR for some other regions. (For example, Yurikuma Arashi and Ping Pong)

And there are some shows, that aren't available on CR for any regions because another company has exclusive world rights.

If they are Exclusive rights, yes, in the region where they apply. So if Funi gets something, exclusive, then CR mostly can't get it because they don't play nice with each other. But that company may sometimes sub-license them to another party, as Funi does with Hulu and or sometimes Netflix. Region restrictions of the licencor would still apply as well. They may be exclusive rights for only the US, for example, but another company in another part of the world may get them, too.

What I do not like the lineup that public Funimation is that Crunchyroll can not acquire a number for Latin America, because Funimation blocks rights for our region, and they are not able to share the license for our region because they see CR as a competition; and that we can not see their videos on the website.

I was under the impression FUNimation always brought/tried to buy English-language rights, which generally cover the US, Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and sometimes South Africa, but very rarely Latin America.

Are you sure it's not just a case of nobody wanting them in Latin America?

It was a rumor, but some series Funi published on Youtube is available to our region examples like Rainy cacoa, Barakamon, etc is likely that the Japanese publisher gives rights to Funimation thinking they are going to use, even a company to license Owari no Seraph, The Heroic Legend of Arslan for Latin America but were told that an American company had bought the rights to the region. why there is fear in the community as funi makes an announcement because practically we went missing.

As far as I know, rights are often sold for 'the americas' as a unit, so every time FUNi gets a rights package like that, that's when Latin America gets locked out, especially since Funimation tends to only sublicense to companies that are not their direct competition on the US market, and CR is the only game in town in Latin America. Also, sometimes FUNi seems to be getting worldwide rights to their shows, which obviously affects everyone outside the US negatively.

Same thing tends to happen in Scandinavia, which is often lumped in with UK/Ireland as 'english-speaking europe' and until last season had no CR competitor for FUNi to sublicense to. Viewster's recent acquisition of BBB could be a sign that that issue is going away for us, though, if I'm right to suspect that FUNi is sub-licensing that show to Viewster.

I really hope " Actually I am " follows the magna because the demon and the teacher are the MVP's of the series. If it does change, I will be dropping it immediately, the MC in this one is painful to watch.
