Re:Life

Yes to Bungo Stray Dogs and Re:Zero -Starting Life in Another World-. Back in May Anime Limited (UK distributor) picked these up along with Twin Star Exorcist in addition to a Crunchyroll partnership. It is believed that the distributor got these three from Crunchyroll and since Twin Star Exorcist is now confirmed for a CR Dub + Blu-ray, it's safe to assume they'll have Bungo & Re:Zero also.

As for Kiznaiver Aniplex of America picked that up just recently.



Awesome! Thank you for the information. I truly hope you're right and CR gets these shows on home release :D! What about Orange, Re:life, Qualidea Code, or the Morose Mononokean? I realize these titles are still fairly new but they remain unlicensed so I'm wondering if CR could snag these as well.

Given Aniplex is the publisher for Qualidea Code (and Rewrite), I expect those go with Aniplex of America.

As for the other three, well considering ReLIFE and Morose Mononokean have their manga source material already on Crunchyroll Manga service I say it's quite possible. Orange is a Toho title so Sentai could end up with that.

Hm, interesting! But wait isn't Aniplex also producing ReLIFE? That's what it says on MAL D:

If you look on each show's page it lists the publisher. For ReLIFE (as well as a few other shows like D.Gray-man HALLOW on Funimation for instance) it's handled by TMS Entertainment instead so it can be picked up by anyone.

I would like it if Crunchyroll Put Episode Count and Good Dubs/Subs over having $60-$80 of extra content.

I'd like to think I speak for the majority of those who buy DVDs/BDs but no other merchandise, when I say "WE WANT A COMPLETE SEASON, NOT 4 EPISODE DISCS WITH EXTRAS"

Hm. I'm probably looking in the wrong place. On MAL, it just says TMS entertainment is the studio and that Aniplex is one of the producers. I don't seem to see any section listed for publishers.

WOOHOO ! This is great news for dub fans / collectors
as long as Crunchy doesn't go the AoA / PonyCan price structure.
i just hope they look into license rescues.
There are SO many highly rated titles (my sources are A.N.N. and M.A.L.) that don't have a dub (so sad). Because i know myself... i can trudge through subs ...but like most regular North Americans i would much rather have a dub.
(even though their are MANY EXTREMELY TALENTED JAPANESE VA's)
In fact the only reason i subscribed to Crunchy was to raise streaming numbers for shows i WISHED would get Dubbed.
and i guess to struggle through (Favorite Genre ) older series that seemed might never get dubbed.
And was debating cancelling my Crunchy subscription because they didn't seem to have any interest in even streaming Dubs
So thank you CrunchyRoll ...and let MORE DUBS BEGIN.
It will be more work for the English VA's out there and more chances for aspiring VA's
So yeh lets raise up some more great English Voice Acting Talent

Ah, haha :P. I'm not really sure how it works but, does a publisher hold more rights than a producer? For instance, ReLIFE has Aniplex listed as one of it's producers, and on CR's website, it has TMS listed as the publisher. So how does it work? xD

While I don't have much knowledge on the matter, I do know that Aniplex sometimes handles only certain parts of the show. For example with Terror in Resonance their main involvement was just the music if I recall right (Sony owns Aniplex I think).

GOD EATER was like the only odd title for Aniplex of America because they had zero involvement whatsoever, with the only connection being the studio Ufotable given that they have Fate and Garden of Sinners. And yet even that show didn't escape the high pricing (at least it got a dub though and reasonable extras like booklets rather than just postcards).

That makes sense :P, thanks. When do you reckon we'll hear more about CR's plans for their home release initiative? Are there any more events coming up where they could make further announcements, or do you figure they'll just arbitrarily post it on the site blog?

I honestly think it'll be a while before we hear more about the home releases. If I had to guess, possibly at Otakon next month if they have a panel but who knows at this point.

True. Time will tell. I really hope CR opts to adapt a similar model akin to Funimations when it comes to releases. Having a BD/DVD combo-pack, with nice custom artwork on the box with a nice slip cover, etc. I really hope they go with that approach because it works really well for Funimation. And as long as it can be reasonably priced. If they can successfully pull that off, then I think they can truly dominate the market.

When an anime is planned, usually multiple companies get together to finance the endeavor. They form the "Production Committee", which is usually featured on the very last screen of the ending animation.
In return for their investment those companies receive a share of the rights/revenue of the anime.

Those companies are usually specialized in exploiting a particular set of rights aspect of a series, for example:
- TV broadcast
- Disc releases
- streaming
- games
- merchandise
- manga
etc.

For most of the rights there are both domestic and overseas installments. Also the rights holders of the original work, advertisement agencies, production funds, or the production studio are frequently involved. The company shown as the publisher on Crunchyroll usually is the member of the production committee that has financed the show in order to be able to manage the licensing of the overseas streaming rights (and usually more than just that).
