Hello all,
I am just curious why the new episode, Episode 39 "Counsel," hasn't released yet on Crunchyroll. It aired earlier today in Japan and it is already on Hulu. On Hulu, it went up at 4:30am Central so even if they were having problems getting the English sub-titles done I would think it would be done and up by now. Thankfully, I have a Hulu account so I was able to watch it but I am just curious why it hasn't been updated to Crunchyroll yet. Does anyone have an idea why? I would much rather watch it on Crunchyroll since I like their services much more than Hulu's but if I have to continue the series on Hulu then I guess I will. Maybe CR is having licensing issues? If anyone has any information on what's going on then that would be great. I'm sure there are a lot of people wondering the same thing as I am. Also, if they aren't going to air ep39 until next week then does that mean CR will be a week behind of everyone else? It doesn't seem like it would be a smart move to do that on their part since they will lose all the traffic from people who are watching this show as it comes out weekly. It seems to be one of their more popular shows so there has to be something going on we don't know about. Still, I don't know what is going on behind the scenes so I can't say either way. Maybe they have a reason for the delayed release...

I've moved this to Site Support.

It's because for this show Crunchyroll has a "delaycast." It's always a week behind here. Apparently they were unable to get the license to show it the same day as Japan as they normally do, but we are unlikely to hear the exact details for that. It occasionally does happen, and it's been this way for this show since episode 1.

We have to wait one week before releasing the episodes, as another service has exclusivity during the first week.
