I noticed that Crunchyroll had episode 3 on a Wednesday, when I thought it came out on a Sunday. Even before that, they had episode 3 listed saying it will come out it in a given number of time. Tomorrow is Wednesday, now I am unsure if they are doing a simulcast for it.

I've moved this to Site Support / Minor Questions.

While CR has a lot of shows that it streams same day as they air in Japan, there is sometimes a few days delay because of the contract -- may depend on when whoever they license it from airs it (if they aren't the first to air it even in Japan), or other details of the negotiation.

It appears to me that based on the Show page and the original announcement indicating that Wednesday the 8th was the first episode, that Wednesday is indeed the regular day that Crunchy shows this, even though it airs on Sunday in Japan.

If Episode 4 came out/comes out this week in Japan, then it's reasonable to assume that Crunchy will stream it as usual on Wednesday. While it is usual to have the placeholder indicating the new episode upcoming ahead of time, I have noticed that it's not always consistent and sometimes can show up a bit closer to the streaming time than usual.

Thanks, I didn't know. I am fairly new to Crunchy Roll(Just joined last week). I was using Funimation for simulcasts before, but I got Crunchy Roll for the Death Note. I think I will wait for Death Note tomorrow, because I want a more accurate sub than random people on internet.

Welcome to Crunchyroll! Hope you end up liking it here.

Also, I'm not sure exactly when it went up, but the placeholder for Death Note Episode 4 is there now -- Just 8 more hours...
