All it suggests to me is that they have only/primarily got the English language details (not rights, details - probably translation issues) nailed down so far.

As such, they can properly announce those regions as everything's basically signed off. But other regions are waiting on their respective languages having their subtle agreements locked down.

I suspect that it's simply that the English language aspect is all sorted out and they figured they might as well announce what they can rather than sitting on part of it whilst waiting to announce the rest.

It would be safe to say that what they mean by "Crunchyroll Original" is not what some people assume it means. It would, for example be silly to assume it meant the same thing as "Netflix Original", since the Japanese & US system are different, and yet some people are going to make that exact assumption.

If, for instance, Crunchyroll were in the production committee, they would have whatever rights were specified in the agreement, subject to the original creator's approval, and anything beyond that would be subject to negotiation.

I'm confused, if this is a Crunchyroll Original title then why is it limited? Wouldn't you be the owning party of the license?

I think they intentionally called it an Original because they wanted it to be like a Netflix original. It's possible that they are on the production committee with Sumitomo, maybe it's their first anime that they invested in for the streaming rights.

I believe that would be OZMA.

Is this thread for all the shows in the upcoming season or just this one exclusive? I wouldn't mind hearing some news about the second season of Kyoukai No Rinne.

Looks like just this one. When they roll out multiple new season announcements over time in a single post, it's normally over the course of a single day, and there's normally some kind of teaser at the end to indicate that an addition might be coming up.

It's normally a little closer to the start of the new season (Winter = Jan, Spring = April, Summer = July, Fall = October), when the regular new season announcements come out ... the timing will depend in part on how many signed contracts they have in hand and how many negotiations are ongoing, since people get themselves worked up into a silly tizzy if the announcement roll-out starts but then a couple of days passes without an announcement, with a flood of hopelessly prematures "zOMG, is THAT ALL, Oh Noes, this will be the WORST SEASON EVAH!!!!1!!" type comments. So they seem to try to time the start so that they can roll out a fairly steady stream of announcements once they get going.

Finland is almost always included in "the Nordics" ... it's typically Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland. Like all regions, there's nothing standardized about that, so for some licenses it includes Iceland, for others not.

And, sure, "Nordics" is ambiguous, but at least it's not as misleading as saying "Scandinavia" but including Finland in the fine print of a contract appendix.

I think it is, though the prior announcement about the change in free streaming access in Canada would imply each episode would only be available for free streaming for 13 weeks.

Look at Daisuki ... they are from members of the production committee, but many of them have region limitations. Or consider the streaming videos that come to Crunchyroll from TV Tokyo, which is often a member of the production committee, but the anime are "available worldwide outside Asia", likely because that's the way that the production committee rights are set up.

The Production Committee system in Japan is different from the unified rights production system in the US. For one thing, different members sign up and contribute a share of the production budget for different rights, and for another thing, the original creator on the committee has final approvals on a lot of things that would be the decision of the primary producing company in the US.

Definitely.

"The Americas" means everything that most countries in South America see as the single continent known as "America", or what we in the US and Canada think of as the two continents of North America and South America.
