Ok, who's idea was it to start with episode 47 instead of episode 1. Now I have to wait even longer to see this. This is incredibly annoying and very disappointing. I was really looking forward it seeing some episodes today. Why didn't you just add the first 10 this Saturday. It would have made too much sense, can't have that can we.

It is the start of the current season/arc. You can mostly jump in here. The First 13 episodes are more or less the Battle of the Gods movie with a few additions here and there. The second 14 episodes make up the Revival of F movie and associated episodes. So if you have watched those two movies, skipping the first 27 episodes will not have you miss much; and nothing that has any real impact on the series. It is not until episode 28-46 that you get into a new story arc, and that arc has not had very much influence on the current arc.

Then you take into consideration the fact that there are tons of people who have been watching the series since it started using fan translations/fan subs. These people have been hoping and praying for a licensed streaming release to come along. So since the current arc is on-going, it makes far more sense to get the current arc's episodes translated & posted first, and then backfill the older episodes over the following month. This way everyone can come in at a solid starting point, and Crunchyroll can almost immediately get most if not all of those who have been watching the fansubbed episodes on the various grey area sites to start watching the legitimate release here, as opposed to a month or so from now when they would finally have gotten caught up to them.

Has there been any word on if they'll upload Episode 1 onwards?

Yes, they're adding 10 episodes a week in a backwards order, so 16-26 next week if we start at episode 27.

To be honest, I think this is pretty fine. I wasn't keeping up with the Super series, but this way I basically have two things to look forward to: the 10 weekly episodes and the new Future Trunks arc episode. I also think it's pretty fair and practical to the fans who were keeping up with the fansubs.

So.... Where are the next 10 episodes? Right now 47 through 63, are all that's showing, and Saturday, is almost over. The message about the new uploads is too old to be referring to next Saturday. I'v tried to find them on other sites, and I'm starting to think CR isn't worried about punctuality. I paid for this service just like everybody else, and I expect my money's worth.

Wouldn't that be 36 through 46, since 47 is the oldest ep that's up right now?

By the way, is there any prospect of the original series coming out on Crunchy?
