Hi!

I'm watching "Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?". I'm told that episode 5: "Availability for premium users: Jun 30, 2015", but I see comments that are more than a month old. Is it because I'm in a different region (northern europe)?

Lol its been more than a month since ep 5 aired. Your region might have had a delay, as in only being allowed to air it at a certain date after its been aired in NA (sometimes the company that sells the licenses enforces arbitrary demands like that onto crunchyroll)

I'm not to knowledgeable on this stuff but I have seen mods mention it on the forums before.

Yeah, I see it in a lot of shows. I understand that that's how the industry works, but I still feel a bit irked about it since I pay the same as all other premium members and feel like I get a substantially poorer service :/

At least I wish they were more transparent about it, eg. list availability by regions or something. Maybe the licensing deals prevent CR from doing that idk.

In a way, I see this as the industry as biting its own tail, as if the long-term goal is to 'wean' people off unofficial offerings towards more legitimate ones, having shows aired a month late in certain regions isn't exactly helping that cause. For example, I've already seen Danmachi to it's conclusion, despite living in a region where this one-month delay is in effect...

Usually the regions/air times are listed in the original announcement news post for the series at least. However I agree it would be helpful to perhaps add that info somewhere on the show's page, if not for any other reason then at least for quick reference...
