Glad you found the link, indicating it was a BD/DVD that Crunchyroll was handling, and not necessarily streaming (which is currently happening on Amazon Prime). I don't believe there's been any announcements since then.

BTW, I've moved this over to Site Support / Minor Questions.

Hmmm... well, the story at your link says, "Crunchyroll to Bring "Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress" and More to Blu-ray & DVD"

Leading the charge is Crunchyroll's acquisition of the rights for merchandise and home video for smash-hit original anime Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress. Not only will the series be coming to Blu-ray and DVD, but Crunchyroll will also be producing the English dub and working with partners and in-house to create merchandise.

It sounds like from that write up that CR is releasing the physical media, but doesn't have the streaming rights (at least, not at the time of that story). I could be wrong, but if true, the DVDs/Blu-rays might be in production (along with the English Dub) which might take awhile.

Maybe a Spring/Summer release for the DVDs/Blu-rays? Looking forward to either way. Would love to buy them.

With the recent partnership between FUNi/CR, the release may have been delayed while the logistics are worked out for a release through Funimation.
