i wonder why CR is late this year

last year they had pretty good timing

What do you mean by "late"?

The timing of their announcements seems rather typical to me. This is how the announcements went for the same period last year (e.g., through July 2):

6/24 - Sailor Moon Crystal
6/24 - Free! Eternal Summer
6/25 - Re: Hamatora
6/26 - GLASSLIP
6/26 - ARGEVOLLEN
6/27 - Sword Art Online II
6/30 - SHONEN HOLLYWOOD -HOLLY STAGE FOR 49-
6/30 - SAMURAI JAM-BAKUMATSU ROCK
7/2- ALDNOAH.ZERO
7/2 - Locodol

Now compare that to this year:

6/24 - Wagnaria!!3
6/24 - Charlotte
6/24 - Classroom☆Crisis
6/24 - DURARARA!! X2 The Second Arc
6/25 - Rokka -Braves of the Six Flowers-
6/26 - Death Note
6/26 - Actually, I Am
6/30 - Miss Monochrome - The Animation- 2
6/30 - Aoharu x Machinegun
7/2 - GATE
7/2 - Wakaba*Girl
7/2 -Ushio and Tora
7/2 - ??

Both started on the same date, but we had 10 titles last summer by this time, vs. 12 now (and that's not even counting the next one to be announced today).

So between last year and now it seems crunchyroll has stepped it up in terms of amount of animes they got which is a good thing. Can't wait to see what crunchyroll dishes out next XD

Hopefully CR at least gets Monster Musume or even God Eater, although the latter seems pretty unlikely at this point, but I'm hopefully they'll pick up a few good titles for the season.

God Eater has already been confirmed as Daisuki exclusive.

For the last announcement today? That would be a bit of a strange choice considering Sentai hasn't announced it yet, and it doesn't premiere until Saturday.

From a time perspective, the third Wooser makes the most sense (as it premieres tomorrow and CR has already officially announced the two other shows in that block), while if they stick with announcing what Sentai did, one of those two remaining titles they announced today would be it.

We are supposed to, I hope they didn't forget.

I remember one time when they made a simulcast announcement either shortly before or after midnight my time (central time), so I'm not ready to give up hope.

I suppose it is also possible they messed up and did a copy and paste of a "7/2" instead of putting in a "?/?". Note that even after I called it to their attention that the topic title still only mentions Gate and not the two other titles announced after it.

While never even been to an anime convention, much less worked one, I imagine it is quite tiring and leaves one rather frazzled. I know that the lineup page usually lags behind when they are at a con, and there have been times when even Site News topics weren't posted in a timely fashion (but thankfully the News posts were).

AX + simulcast announcement time is probably akin to working Black Friday in a retail store for CR employees.

I'm guessing we won't get the last 7/2 today then.

If we're getting Gate, and it comes out today, why's it not showing up on the Simulcast listing? I want to add it to my queue so I can follow it!

Because they haven't published the page yet to make it public.

We've got more shows being announced with Wakaba*Girl and Ushio and Tora coming to Crunchyroll's Summer Lineup!

Shouldn't those be added to the title?

I notice we still have one more title due today, so I thought I should get this in before it is posted.



Haha yes, was literally crammed in the back room at the AX booth with ten thousand people trying to get my attention. Fixed!

Nope, I haven't forgotten! Just literally have not had a moment to even be at a place where I can type until now. BUT, it's still 9pm in Hawaii, so it still counts, right??

And yes, that is actually a pretty apt description; to be in the back room of the booth frantically typing up a site news post while making sure all of the assets that need approvals are also being sent out to Japan on crappy internet five minutes before you need to go on stage and interview a producer makes things pretty hectic.

Idk maybe the launch team are all just masochists.
