What happened to unbreakable machine-doll on the app? I Was streaming it to my chrome cast yesterday, had to stop watching, went back to watch more later and it was gone. Gone from my history too. I logged out and back in of the app, then cleared my cached data, still can't see it. Why? I'm in Ireland

You may want to verify CR still sees you as being in Ireland. You can do that by going to the Contact page in the web browser on the device you are casting from, scrolling to the grey text at the bottom and checking that it still lists Ireland for "Detected Country:".

Never mind, as I see you found the problem:

Now if CR and Funimation could just keep up this pace of additions for a while.


On a different matter, cue people in the UK and Ireland complaining about not having the first four episodes of Hellsing Ultimate instead of being thankful for having the last six.

As for the reason for the difference, these were not all licensed at the same time.


Of course we are going to complain we want NA treatment we speak the same language and put up with American style spellings (which is kind of jarring until you are used to it) and barely have the fan base to be listened to most people just see the last half of a series and steal the whole thing that's how this place still is the majority still steal so it doesn't effect them so they don't care and also don't care about supporting an industry that they see as ignoring them.

Excluding Hellsing Ultimate and Baldr Force EXE they are all on animelab. ...

And that is not an accident ... Madman was picking up exclusive Oz/NZ rights from most of Funimation's licenses, or picking up direct Oz/NZ rights when Funimation was not required to pick up all English Language Countries ... and the cross-distribution deal cannot change contracts that were already signed and in place at the time that the cross-distribution agreement was reached.

Any fellow Finns thinking about crossing the puddle for anime?


I'm feeling like license people think that Finland is some sort of ice cream lake or something.

From the licensing that was being one, it seems like the Japanese thought Finland was in Eastern Europe.

Back in the days of physical disk distribution, it didn't matter so much for countries that did not have their own disk distributor ... an export order could still be shipped by a mail retailer from London (or wherever), even if the buyer was not in the countries that the disk distributor had licensed. Then when streaming started, it became clear that many Japanese ideas of licensing regions were a bit ... off.

It was probably mostly Crunchyroll that changed that over time, as they responded to ongoing complaints from Finnish and Danish members by continuing to press for those rights in negotiations. But what Crunchyroll was asking for didn't affect Funimation's region request until after the cross distribution deals were signed, so in the period when Funimation was getting handed Nordic rights as part of their English Language rights, it looks like a lot of these contracts were signed where Finland is not in the contract's definition of Nordic rights.


So Finland will not be included if Funimation ever creates Funimation Nordic? Well crap
I was so hyped that in the far future I would be able to watch eng dubbed anime legally.

Not necessarily ...

... it does mean that if Funimation ever creates Funimation Nordic, and if Finland is included, the Finnish titles will tend to be the ones from after they signed the cross-distribution deal with Crunchyroll.

These are legacy issues. They can be pushed to fix them for new, upcoming licenses, but it's much harder to fix them for existing licenses. What is needed is a new contract. Doing the due diligence on a contract takes time and money. And the money that can be earned from the expansion is often not enough to cover those costs.

are they chaos dragon got 5.8 on my anime list though it looks cool.


I personally stopped watching it about four or five episodes in, because it was turning into something like Akame Ga Kill, where it was basically just killing off one character after another. The initial hype from the series came from word that there were characters made by: Kinoko Nasu (wrote Fate/Stay Night among other works), Gen Urobuchi (wrote Fate/Zero, Madoka Magica and Psycho-Pass among other works) and Ryogo Narita (wrote Baccano! and Durarara!!). None of those people were involved in writing the show though, so if you decide to watch it and are a fan of their stuff, keep that in mind.

Well, I said they were "fun" shows... not great shows, but it's all subjective. Check out a few episodes, see if you like them. No harm if you don't. They're just cartoons.



IF EVERY SHOW ISN'T NEON GENESIS IT'S A BAD SHOW


Madoka Magica is often considered the Evangelion of the magical girl genre, does that count?

you should be able to get Unbreakable machine doll on madman's animelab library; I know they've released it on DVD.

Same with Hellsing and Hellsing Ultimate.

Too bad about Chaos dragon - sounds fun. But not being available to us Aussies usually means that one of our distributors already have the rights. Keep an eye out for announcements for Madman and Hanabee; most of their catalogue is available for streaming from AnimeLab and Hanabee's website.

Funimation did not license for Latin America before the cross-distribution deal was signed. Don't expect Latin America in any old Funimation catalog titles that come to Crunchyroll under the cross distribution deal.

The benefit to Latin America is that with Crunchyroll and Funimation cooperating instead of competing, the series that would have gone to Funimation and in many cases get no Latin American rights from anyone will now have Funimation cooperating with Crunchyroll, trying to get Worldwide ex Asia rights.

But that benefit is for new license pickups going ahead ... it is not inherited by old contracts that never had Latin American rights.

It seems that we still do not benefit from this agreement, because this season we lost Sakura Quest and will soon lose 18 if

Ahh, I'm glad Crunchyroll got these shows. I enjoyed them when I watched on Funi, I'm happy to have the excuse to watch again somewhere else!

Sidenote: Unbreakable Machine-doll still is one of the most addicting ED's I've ever listened too.

To lose something, one needs to have had it at some point. If Funimation and CR were still competing, that doesn't mean CR would have had Sakura Quest, and given the early announcement, it seems certain they wouldn't have had 18 if.

well i know a lot of games are out right disallowed release in germany and australlia due to political reasons, could be the same with licensing in your area. I know canada and germany have done some bans in the past of certain anime due to content untill it met thier censorship standards at the time.
