Soon as I bought the Blu Ray for A Town Where You Live, they brought it on Crunchyroll What they should have done is to get the first eleven volumes of the manga translated.

Yep, they've been getting every OTHER 90's birth-of-US-anime classics from my upbringing!

Ah, SuperGals...Never did get to finish it when shows were only on disk.
Every episode had its own moral message for 90's Shibuya teens (remember, paid-kogal dates can lead to trouble!), fans called it "the Shoujou Fat Albert".

I don't really care if I can't watch them due to where I live but I am pretty happy that both Super Gals and Gakuen Alice are here on CR. People who might not have seen them yet can now get a chance to watch them and may be love them as much as I did when I watched them on TV when I was younger.

Why did you just license them for the US and Canada ;_;

I want to watch Super Gals, sounds right up my precure like alley (theres dancing apparently!) but since I'm not in the US or Canada (who in the hell would want to live in Canada, no offence) I gotta go watch it somewhere else! Well at least CR is good at leading me to new things.

CR didn't, Nozomi Entertainment (the publisher of both titles) did, since they only distribute home video in the US & Canada.

It's because Nozomi Entertainment, the company that these titles are coming from, deals with license distribution in North America for the United States and Canada, so therefore can only authorize the distribution to those countries. If you want them distributed in your countries, then you should contact Crunchyroll and ask them to contact the license distributors for your respective countries instead of complaining about it. That's just how licensing works.


It wasn't about these titles specifically. It's a general thing. Simulcasts tend to be peppered around the world, but old titles added to catalogue are predominantly for North America. I don't think they're all from the same licensing company, or are they? Anyway I understand how licensing works, so I'll reformulate:

is there any hope that Crunchyroll will consider making deals about old titles with European distributors as well? Or is the market here just not big enough for them to bother? Or are European distributors less inclined to provide streaming rights?

There, fixed.

You'll find the majority of them are from Nozomi & Discotek, with a few others coming from companies such as Media Blasters...all U.S. companies.

Streaming isn't a new concept to smaller U.S. anime companies, as most had experience with Hulu (before their purge last year of many titles) and some such as Nozomi via their own YouTube channel.

And bigger companies that AREN'T Nozomi and Discotek, like Funimation and Viz, already have their own streaming services.
