I have a question...Mischievous Kiss 2 delaycast
Posted 7/18/15 , edited 7/18/15
...Why are all 16 episodes of the second series of the Itazura Na Kiss j-drama up to watch on other online streaming sites already but only available on here as a weekly added simulcast? I'm not about to go and betray CR as a loyal paying Premium Member by watching the remaining 9 episodes elsewhere out of impatience, I just want to know how and or why this so happens to be the case? Can any staff or moderators please enlighten me?

The answer, as usual, is licensing.

I see from the Site News announcement that this was simulcast Fall/Winter in some territories, with additional territories getting it on a 6-month delay. I'm in the U.S. And all 16 episodes are available from the show page for me. There are a few other shows (including anime) where that's been the case, but CR staff is unlikely to provide any details as to why some contracts are like that.

I'm going to move this to the Advice Info, Recommendations forum, since some members more familiar with licensing in general are more likely to see it there and might be able to suggest what leads to this kind delayed rights for some areas.
