Technically 7 since ReLIFE and Berserk were confirmed before the Summer Rollout.

The Fall rollout is somewhat disappointing since technically there are only 3 new titles since out of 6 titles, 2 of them are sequels and 1 is a repeat.

I wonder when the next batch of announcements will happen. Maybe this Friday?

Considering Digimon Universe: Appli Monsters will premiere this Friday night in US and there are a few titles like WWW.WORKING!! which is going to premiere before CR panel on Anime Weekend Atlanta this Saturday.

What's Crunchyroll's relationship like with Sentai these days? There was a time they'd get everything Sentai licensed, but that doesn't seem to be the case any more?

It's hard to say, I could be wrong but I would have to guess that the bridge with Sentai and CR is slowly burning.

I would understand if Sentai isn't too thrilled with CR at moment because of two major things they have to deal with:
1. CR officially gets into actual home video licensing like other licensors like Aniplex, Funimation, Pony Canyon, Sentai, etc.
2. CR and Funi enters into a shared simulcast and distribution partnership. How long will this partnership last is unknown.

For the first point, CR once was strictly streaming only and since CR is one of the best if not the best streaming service in the anime industry Sentai doesn't have any worries and would just allow CR to stream things they license. Last year Sentai began exclusively streaming shows on Hulu because Hulu is bigger, had more subscribers, had deeper pockets and Sentai would logically get more exposure. But recently Hulu went through drastic changes like having different subscription plans and most notably removing a huge overhaul of its anime catalog. I'm not sure how much this has affected Sentai but I would guess that Sentai would give CR more shows since Hulu is not looking to have a huge anime library. Now that CR has become a licensor that's another competitor Sentai has to deal with and a big one at that.

Before I get into the second point, this is from my understanding of CR/Funi partnership and correct if me I'm wrong please. Despite the partnership, CR and Funi will still compete and try to outbid against each other to license shows. Whichever they get or don't get they now they have room to negotiate which shows they'll allow each other to share and eventually have for home video release which in the past never happens. They've essentially eliminated tension between the two and can now happily work together in a win-win competitive relationship. Onto Sentai's case, Sentai now has to deal with outbidding both CR and Funi because if CR and Funi outbids one another on particular shows they're aiming for I'm sure they can easily just negotiate and allow share simulcast/simuldub that they never used to be able to do.

In conclusion, I believe CR's and Sentai's relationship is hanging on a thin thread. Sentai might only be continuing to work with CR because they don't have another platform to work with that's as or more popular than CR. I think Sentai might be in desperation mode and are trying to license as much possibly big hitters for this season in order to not let CR and Funi get all the glory. I've said this earlier this week but I would not be surprised if the shows they have currently licensed for this season to not show up on CR and instead show up on Hulu or The Anime Network. At this point Sentai needs a game changer and I wouldn't be surprised if Sentai starts their own streaming service in the future to be the same level as CR and Funi currently.

This is all speculation on my part so don't take my word for it completely. I could be spouting nonsense but I think this is truth.

P.S. I do hope Sentai allows CR to stream Flip Flappers and Matoi the Sacred Slayer because I am interested in those shows. Seeing the Flip Flappers preview for some reason gave me some Kill La Kill vibe from it and Matoi is animated by White Fox which is a studio I have respected since Steins;Gate.

Since CR is done with details for the titles which were announced at Fall rollout, the remaining announcements will be always something new. I wonder if CR is done with today announcements though.

No word about Haikyuu 3, Natsume 5 and Utapri 4 huh...Since all of their previous seasons were streamed on CR, I just assumed they'd be on here too.
