Hey I was just wondering about the status of the show Outbreak Company. I watched 6 episodes of it last night/early morning but when I went back to continue watching earlier today, around 6:30pm eastern time, all of the videos were gone. I was just wondering if this was a website issue of if there was a bigger reason the videos were taken down. Thanks for any information that you can provide.

It's still up at Hulu (http://www.hulu.com/outbreak-company) so maybe CR's streaming deal with Sentai Filmworks expired. Hopefully not and it's just a mistake on CR's part. Definitely a cute show.

Thanks for the tip about Hulu. Yeah hope nothing happened with the deal with Sentai as we could lose a good amount of shows if that were the case. I would expect some kind of notice if that were the case though so here's hoping.

Edit: Decided to look up some other shows from Sentai; Food Wars, Flying Witch, Akame ga Kill, and Blade and Soul, and they are all still up as far as I could tell. So judging by that it's probably just a technical issue on CRs end. Hopefully that's true as I would hate to lose food wars just before the 2nd season comes out.

It's quite a list that's gone missing...

AMNESIA
Angel Beats
Blue Spring Ride
Bodacious Space Pirates
Dusk Maiden of Amnesia
Ef - A Tale of Memories
Familiar of Zero F
Hakuoki Reimeiroku
Hakuoki Season 1
Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere
Inu X Boku Secret Service
Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions
Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions - Heart Throb -
Magical Warfare
Majestic Prince
Mashiroiro Symphony
Mysterious Girlfriend X
Nobunaga the Fool
Outbreak Company
Photo Kano
Queen's Blade Rebellion
Rozen Maiden
Rozen Maiden Zurückspulen
Sakura Trick
Soni-Ani: SUPER SONICO THE ANIMATION
Stella Women’s Academy, High School Division Class C3
Sunday Without God
The Kawai Complex Guide to Manors and Hostel Behavior
Tsuritama
Un-Go
Wizard Barristers

Although, I'm only really sad about 1/3 of them, with 3 titles being very disappointing. Nothing common to all that I can spot, quite a few different publishers represented here:

Aniplex
Fuji
Geneon
King
Media_Factory
Sentai
Showgate
TBS
Toho

And June 21/22 is kind of an odd date/time to have them all expire as well. Summer Solstace?

I wish there was an actual announcement though. I have a lot to do now to clean up Rotten Sushi, and it would be nice to know this wasn't just some random error...

Edit 6/23 10 AM CDT... (Thanks DarkSasword)
These shows do not appear in the page listing all available shows, http://www.crunchyroll.com/videos/anime/alpha?group=all but if you search for the show page, they still have their episodes available... at least for now...

AMNESIA
Blue Spring Ride
Magical Warfare
Majestic Prince
Nobunaga the Fool
Soni-Ani: SUPER SONICO THE ANIMATION
Wizard Barristers

Dang that's quite the list, there are definitely some good ones in there. I feel like this has to be a technical issue though since there was no announcement and some of these shows are quite new, comparatively anyway. The only time I remember CR taking a show down was with GOSICK and they gave us plenty of heads up with that so I would expect them to do the same if that was the case here. I'll admit though that they might have taken other shows down without me knowing GOSICK was just a big hit for me personally, since afaik there is no way for me to leagally own or watch it anymore (RIP BANDAI) and it's one of my favorite shows, so I remember it well.

Hopefully we will get some information from someone on the inside tomorrow when everyone goes into work. Fingers crossed it was just a coding mistake as I hate to lose easy access to any show much less ones that I enjoyed.

Edit: Just noticed that the first season of My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU is also missing.

That is true, and there are a few there that I already miss and was planning to rewatch later if I ever caught up to everything they have added lately...

However, CR has been adding at least that many new titles every season in the past several years, and they haven't done this nearly that often. Usually when they do, they try to let us know ahead of time if they are allowed to.

But I have seen this happen before, occasionally, just not for this many titles all at once. I do wish they made an official list somewhere though, so that at least there's no uncertainty. But maybe certain individual contracts don't let them, due to some non-disclosure clause or something like that...

Our license for Outbreak Company, along with several others, has expired.
We might be able to bring some of the titles back in the future, but we cannot give you a status update on it at this point. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.

I don't have the time this morning to check each title to verify, but it appears all these share a single commonality: They are titles licensed by Sentai here in the US (and are available on The Anime Network, and based on a spot check, still are).

Interesting. Those all do not show up on the list here: http://www.crunchyroll.com/videos/anime/alpha?group=all but as you say, there still are episodes available when you search out the actual show pages.

So something is either a mistake, or else not completed yet. I guess I'll wait for a while to let the dust settle before I clean up Rotten Sushi...

That's unfortunate, as some others have said in other places it would be nice to get a little heads up even if it's only a week in advance, but I understand that that might not be possible depending on the deal. Hopefully you can get some of these shows back as some of them are pretty good and it would be a shame to see them gone. As for me guess I'm gonna have to finish Outbreak Company somewhere else, thanks for the reply though so at least we aren't left guessing.

I sent an email to support yesterday about Kawai Complex and got a short response that said they were doing unexpected server maintenance and to check back in 24 hours. But so far it still isn't there. It'd be nice to get some info on which shows will be returning and which ones won't and why.
