Oh, I didn't know they were active in the US, that changes that for sure. There doesn't seem to be a way to find out what Viewster has available outside your own territory, so I can't see it myself, but it would be interesting to find out if they share any shows with Funimation in the US. But since they still don't seem willing to sublicense to CR, maybe Funimation simply doesn't consider Viewster a threat?


Well, FUNi has licensed Attack on Titan to Crunchyroll before, so it's not like it's an unbreakable rule for FUNi. However, I was wrong. According to their blog, all three of their FUNimation simulcasts were UK & Ireland only, except where they also had a separate deal.

Well, Viewster specifically announced that they will be streaming it: https://twitter.com/viewster/status/613688416706928640 You're right that it's probably licensed through Anime Limited, going by the tweets, which would be the same arrangement as a few other spring shows. The reason I was speculating that it could be coming through Funimation is honestly that it's coming THIS late in the season, which suggest very long negotiations were involved. Seraph, Plamemo and Arslan were not nearly as delayed.


The head of Anime Ltd. tweeted "One out of the two series I personally really wanted this year in the bag, one to go!", two weeks ago on June 5th. Viewster announced BBB less than two weeks later. So if there were major holds in negotiations, it wasn't with Viewster.

The more likely answer is simply that we aren't a priority for most Japanese studios. Warner Japan still won't licence JoJo's Bizarre Adventure in the UK, despite every UK licensor apparently wanting it, basically because we're not a priority for them. My guess is whoever manages BBB, having secured North America, didn't consider us a priority, and therefore wasn't too bothered about making us wait until the show is basically over.

They've already announced Classroom Crisis, Charlotte, Wagmania!!3 and Rokka from the new season for the UK. It's the Continental Europeans you have feel sorry for, who have basically only got Rokka...

Sweet, definitely watching Rokka (#2 on my wishlist!), and I guess the Death Note adaptation will be my first drama. Dunno about Actually I Am, I'll certainly give it a try though.

I wonder if we're as likely to get Monster Musume now that we got Jitsu wa Watashi wa, which is a moderately similar premise (Harem Anime with mythological creatures). I'm sure the shows will feel like a bit of an overlap... Still want the other one as well though

That always happens when they first post simulcast links.
And it'll stay that way until they publish the page for it making it public.
