Will Crunchy be getting the second season? and do they have the OAV? I have not found it on Crunchy.

Sometimes the original licensors in Japan specifically tell CR not to make an announcement generally a day or two (or even on the day of) the broadcast date in Japan. Given that CR acquired the first season and also how successful it was in Winter 2015/2016, they'll most likely announce it tomorrow on Wednesday (broadcast day in Japan). Just be patient.

There's an anticipation forum on S2 so feel free to discuss or ask questions there.

FUNimation isn't "out of the game", they just do dubbing only now. Sometimes the dub>sub ; more often then not, so make no mistake.

Who knows, maybe they intend to redub this whole show? That be nice, maybe....



Finally, least I point out "The Anime News Network" does pick up a few titles here and then; has quite the catalog, so there are other potenial players still. That being said, I don't see CR dropping this title, but we shall see.

CR does not have the OAV. It is relatively rare for CR to get OVAs.

The amount of time in advance CR announces they have a series has no bearing on whether they will actually get it or not. We had a case in point yesterday, when Yowamushi Pedal New Generation was announced after the first episode was posted.

It depends on what game one is referring to. They are effectively out of the game of competing with CR for simulcasts (as CR is also out of the game of competing with Funimation for simulcasts).

Aside from TAN, Daisuki would be another possibility, but I really don't see either happening. Neither seems to have the relationship with Kadokawa that Funimation and CR do, and neither has the first series.

I've closed this because threads asking questions of this sort don't belong in the Anime forum and other users have given the best answers they can, and basically we just need to wait to see if it gets announced. I suggest keeping an eye on the Winter 2017 Simulcasts thread as the place it is certain to be announced if CR gets it.

If news gets spotted elsewhere about the show, someone is likely to post in its "Anticipation" thread, so that's another place to keep looking:
