Hello! Though we have Shirobako and Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun to show us a bit of the anime/manga world, I think getting ahold of Bakuman would be great as well. I have watched seasons 1 and 2 on Hulu (how did they get their hands on ANIME?!) but they haven't put in the 3rd installment yet. I say beat them to the punch!

If you want them to add such an anime, this might be helpful.

Editing a post will also bump the thread instead of double posting.

Hulu is a platform used to host anime by distributors like http://www.hulu.com/companies/viz-media.

Crunchyroll doesn't usually get Viz Media catalog titles unless they had been streaming them as simulcasts prior to Viz Media picking up the North American rights.

The first two seasons of Bakuman were licensed for NA years ago by another company, but the release got cancelled. So Viz picked up that license recently (probably for a discount), which is why it's now on Hulu.

I wouldn't be holding my breath for season 3 to get picked up though. Slice of life doesn't sell that well in the US, and I doubt anyone is going to bother with it. Crunchyroll would probably be the best bet for that license, actually. But without the first two seasons included I kind of doubt they'd want to bother.

Closed this because the Advice, Info, Recommendations forum is for requesting advice, information, and recommendations from other users, not for making recommendations to CR.

Others have explained why CR might not be in a position to acquire this and PeripheralVisionary has provided a link to the correct place for premium users to let CR know which shows you want, so I think you're all set.
