Last season the first announcement was made 9 days (not completely sure but pretty sure) before the first simulcast started, the first announcement this season was made 11 days before so it shouldn't be that suprising .
(Crunchyroll exclusive not included)

Indeed. Curious as to what caused this. But not complaining.


Probably because Spring 2016 anime start quite early (April 1st) so Crunchyroll want to give the users time to think whether it's worth it to continue subscribing and there are more competitors now like Amazon grabbing Noitamina titles and Viz already announcing Jojo and Terraformars.


Next up on our lineup for Spring is The Asterisk War Second Season, which is premiering every Saturday starting April 2nd @ 8:00AM PST and will be available to Crunchyroll Members in the following territories: North America, Central America, South America, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand.

The other announcement for today is just a detail for The Asterisk War Second Season. More announcements at 11AM PST tomorrow.

I can see Funi getting Kuromukuro. I mean, they picked up HaruChika, which shocked me.

I can also see Funi getting Macross.

Koutetsujou no Kabaneri has been confirmed as Amazon Prime exclusive. I wonder if there will be Hulu and The Anime Network exclusives again this season.

The 1st of April is a Friday, so Monday next week would be a little close to the start of the season.

And Viz already started announcing. If Crunchyroll has an adequate stock of announcements already approved by the Japanese production committees and ready to go, why not start this week?

How do you expect them to get around the Harmony Gold problem?:

I believe we can count on one Sentai title being a Hulu exclusive, just as with the past two seasons. The real question is whether there will be additional title(s) siphoned off as The Anime Network exclusives, like last season.

Funi has been quite productive during the past few years. If they really see profit in Macross, then they will find a way.

It surprises me because barring the Aniplex series, their announcements are usually cutting it close. Well I'm not complaining, the earlier, the better.

No reason to complain indeed. But as mentioned, it tends to cut it a lot closer. Like the day before or even on the same day. But again, not complaining since in terms of territories things have also started off pretty well.

Curious what is next.

Indeed good news. Plus pretty much available for everyone. So far they seem to have pretty good luck with territories. I remember not too long ago where i'd probably have been cursing because it was limited.

Hope Crunchyroll can keep this up.

It seems the regions aren't "Worldwide except Japan" like the previous seasons. I wonder what's causing this change.

Growing popularity in China? If one of the Chinese sites offered enough money for exclusive simulcast rights in China, and the numbers on Crunchyroll in Asia and most of sub-Saharan Africa are not very strong, the original creator (or their agent) might refuse to roll over the original rights.
