I hope the translation quality of Detective Conan doesn't suffer for being same day. I feel DC is a show that needs a bit of time to make sure the translation is done right, or it can very easily fail to provide correct info or context.

Thank you both for explaining. Makes more sense now!

Guess Crunchyroll ain't for me then. I am more of a "binger" instead of waiting for newest Episode every week. So "Catalog" is what i'm interested in. I will keep premium to support the industry. I always hated needing to watch fansubbed stuff as a european so i stopped years ago. But it's still the only way to watch whole seasons of older stuff it seems. I do buy DVDs but rarely use them because i'm handicapped and can't even insert a DVD so i try to do everything online. Just to explain why i can't use every Option.

Thanks again and have a nice Weekend ;.;


Wir helfen dir auch gerne auf Deutsch. Wie die anderen Kunden bereits angemerkt haben, werden über die englischen News derzeit hauptsächlich Katalog-Titel angekündigt, die aus einer Kooperation mit einem amerikanischen Anbieter (Funimation) stammen, welcher nur Lizenzen für Regionen besitzt, in denen Englisch gesprochen wird. Leider hat Funimation keinerlei Rechte für den deutschen Sprachraum.

Über /videos/anime/alpha?group=all kannst du einsehen, welche Serien für dich verfügbar sind. Derzeit haben wir im deutschsprachigen Raum etwa 375 Serien mit 5000 Episoden im Angebot. Als nächstes werden wir übrigens mehrere ältere Gundam Serien mit deutschen Untertiteln bereitstellen. Da dich ja schon Gundam IBO interessiert, sind die anderen Serien vielleicht auch etwas für dich.

We'll likely have the same amount of time available as before. No need to worry about that.

Well here it is. After 3 and a half years of having premium and even the premium+ sub i've finally decided to cancel my membership.

The complete neglect for the European region was always a problem but lately it's just been ridiculous. And i know of the Funi deal and how that's not Crunchy's fault but that doesn't really help me.

Also the recent debacle with the video quality really didn't help. It really isn't a good look when a company starts to backtrack AFTER they've been caught with their pants down.

Don't get your hopes up with DxD being uncensored, the funimation one was censored, so this one probably will be too.

I hope highschool dxd is uncensored, atleast for premium members otherwise 90% of it will be a white screen

I did a quick check, and it is definitely the uncensored version.



You my friend are an angel

How so? All he did was do what anyone can do, thats not special.

Sorry, due to licensing limitations, videos are unavailable in your region.

It is presumptuous to assume that they are shafting you, and does no good to get butt hurt over what is out of control for funimation with what countries they are allowed to share content with as imposed a lot by the Japanese companies.

For catalog titles, it often doesn't make economic sense (since they tend to have lower viewership), not to mention dealing with the patchwork of rights that would have been snapped up by companies in other countries during the interim.


A full load of crap statement from you as usual, older shows can and still do get viewer numbers and views from other sources like daisuki or or hulu are still taken into account. You go around filling peoples heads full of BS when you have no idea what you are talking about ever.

I wouldn't mind a FAQ from CC where they go full transparent about how licensing works. I'm living in Norway and there no Amazon, Anime on Demand, Clipfish, MyVideo Schweiz, Daisuki, and Akiba Pass, Hulu, Funimation or the Anime Network here. There's Nexflix Norway, but it's like 5 anime series there. I've tried to google the shit out of this, but no luck to find any licensing rights holder in Norway or the Nordic countries. of course I'm glad for what CC do provide and offer, but I want it all and I can't seem to find out what's holding them back, and that's quite annoying.

If CC has provided such an thorough answer before please link it to me, thanks!

(and yes I saw the answers given to the german above, but we do not have the same streaming sites in Norway, so that should not be the problem here)

I don't assume anyone is "shafting" me. And i am not butt hurt either. And i am willing to bet my my life on it, that not everything is out of control for funimation. In the end it's a question of money, as always.

I have seen 2 posts from you so far. 1 mildly and 1 very aggressive. There is no need for that, no matter how "dumb" you may think someones view is.

Catalog titles do not get the numbers that simulcasts get.

"still do get viewer numbers" is an empty claim, the question is whether they would get viewer numbers in the region included in a new contract to pay back a minimum guarantee that is large enough to cover the international licensors contracting costs and transaction costs and leave a surplus.


... and views from other sources like daisuki or or hulu are still taken into account. You go around filling peoples heads full of BS when you have no idea what you are talking about ever.

Hulu is US only, so of no use in helping to cover a new contract over a territory outside of the US. And, of course, Hulu also went through a change in strategy and did a massive pruning of its anime back catalog.

Daisuki is a partnership of Japanese companies that handle international licensing of anime, engaging in first party streaming as opposed to licensing the rights to a second party. Since Daisuki doesn't license anime, sub-licensing to Daisuki isn't an option to help a licensee cover its minimum guarantee.

It is, however, quite possible that the Japanese licensors would mind.


I'm living in Norway and there no Amazon, Anime on Demand, Clipfish, MyVideo Schweiz, Daisuki, and Akiba Pass, Hulu, Funimation or the Anime Network here.

Have you looked to see whether Daisuki has any series for Norway? I looked at their Winter lineup, and it looked like five of six series listed included Norway. Several say, "except for German-/French-speaking countries and Italy, Poland"

Mind you, since Crunchyroll will take a shared license when that is what is offered, there is often overlap between what is available at Daisuki and what is available at Crunchyroll.
