Pretty much this, I believe. Negotiations are fierce and take time no matter when they start, but also the contracts specify when they can announce in many cases, both of which mean, as usual, CR has to wait to the last moment to show what they're showing. Since people can't watch the shows before they start airing, doing them in groups also helps marketing, I'm sure, but some of those contracts get very specific about talking details, if they're anything like what I'm used to from games.

Crunchyroll does not "do anime," it licenses it from Japan. So, CR can only pick up what's already coming out.

Of a total of 45 animes this season (there might be more since livechart.me doesn't seem to have all of them listed) 31 will be starting within 7 days and 7 more within 14 days! Does anyone think that the distributors haven't decided on at least those airing this week?

S 1 was on Funimation and so is the upcoming S 2



That's what I thought but there were a couple people who kept saying it was on CR to the point where I just believed it lol.

So now we're doing season complaint threads before the CR even announces what they'll be streaming? We're really reaching new heights.

Hush boy, patience is a virtue.

But yeah a ''CR has nothing'' topic before the season even starts. I don't think anyone will ever beat this new record

Winter looks fucking amazing XD
Boku Dake Ga Inai Machi is airing as well as Ajin.
Then there's fun stuff flying on the raidar like Bubuki Buranki and Hai To Gensou To Grimgar.

Crunchyroll hasn't really officially picked up anything yet, but if it picks up even half the shows that are airing, I'm going to be happy.

Ummm... They're still announcing. Funimation has announced what shows they will be doing, but so far only continuing shows (and I think 1-2 others) have had their airtimes announced in the US. They're still announcing in a way as well. Crinchyroll is just slow. I was fed up on how late they announced some of the shows.

When the pictures are just a bunch of loli girls eating cake or 'magical girls' it's safe the say the anime isn't going to be my cup of tea.


Just because you don't like a particular genre, that doesn't make all the shows of that genre bad. If you have no interest in those type of shows and don't plan on watching them, that's fine, but calling them bad without having watched even a single episode seems stupid to me.

Where are you getting this? "Haven't announced yet" does not equate to "not doing".

Perhaps you are confusing Divine Gate, which premieres in Japan late on January 8, with Gate: Jieitai Kanochi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri 2, which premieres a bit over 2.5 hours later.

Do you honestly think they would have done the live streaming marathon of the first part if they weren't planning on getting the second?
