Hello everyone!

The Anime "Gosick" was one which was suggested to me few months back and I will admit from the plot synopsis I read it sounded fairly decent.

When I went to check into where I could watch it though I noticed something interesting. During its initial airing Crunchyroll was Simulcasting it and then once that was finished the series just kinda vanished from the website. A company had obtained the rights to it to publish the DVDs but then they ended up dropping it with out any reason being stated and since then no one has picked it up and it is no longer available on Crunchyroll, or anywhere really.



So, what exactly happened with this series, why was it dropped by companies and never picked up again? My experience so far with Crunchyroll has been once they had the license they normally end up having it for quite a number of years for streaming.

Was there some legal troubles somewhere?

Licenses expire, and don't get renewed sometimes, that's the nature of Streaming

For Example when CR lost Anohana, due to Aniplex not renewing NIS America's license, they renegotiated with Aniplex to bring the show back to CR.

I actually think the licensing for Gosick was with Bandai, and when they pulled out of the NA market, CR's licenses of Gosick, Haruhi and Lucky Star got cancelled. Funimation immediately picked up Haruhi and Lucky Star, while Gosick is sitting unlicensed

That's a shame. Gosick is a really great show. Sadly underrated.

So it's in show limbo like season three of Dog Days! And food wars 2, since CR has not confirmed it for streaming and it starts in Japan July 2!

This and the fact that Nichijou isn't licensed is a tragedy

You say that like it's proximity means CR should have announced it by now... they regularly don't announce shows until a couple of days before or even the same day a series starts, we still have over a week yet so be patient.

As regards Gosick I think the license ran out near the end of 2014 (might be mistaken), but as others said, it's a shame because it's a brilliant series.

That was one of Bandai's last licenses when they went under, which, unfortunately, went into limbo with them on the home video front. CR did maintain streaming rights until a couple years ago or so. I watched it on CR then right before they lost the streaming license. Same happened with Nichijou.
