Can't you just put up Funimation's smash-hit shonen titles on your service first, like Tokyo Ghoul, Dragon Ball franchise, and worry about the other genres later.

While we don't know for certain, I'm betting Funimation has more say in what titles come over when than CR does.

It was put up on the site in 2009, the first year that it went fully legit, back when they had like six to ten series a season ... so actually on of the earlier series that Crunchyroll actually licensed (not "earliest", since they had some licensed series in 2008 before they shut down user uploads). It was licensed by ADV, so I guess Crunchyroll sublicensed from them shortly before they shut down that company and set up the Sentai / Seraphim / etc. system to get out of their bad licensing contract.

(Now, ADV had it out on disk earlier than that, so you MIGHT have seen an upload rather than the 2009 licensed stream.)

It's a GREAT SERIES ... too bad the territory is US/Canada only.

Madman has it in Oz/NZ. That's a bit before English language licenses commonly included Scandinavia, but it's a shame that the original licensor did not seem to include in UK/Ireland and South Africa in the original carve up of the international rights.

Srsly is everything CR gets novadays from Funi? And if so, is it even worth to pay for premium outside of the Funi regions?
I'm sure I'm not the only Finn asking this right now...

Funimation has a big and deep back catalog, and eventually almost all of the subs from that back catalog is coming to Crunchyroll (everything except where the license contract does not allow it). So even though there have been some notable catalog deals this last season that were not from Funimation ... the majority are obviously going to be from Funimation until all of the available part of the back catalog has finished its migration.


And if so, is it even worth to pay for premium outside of the Funi regions?

For people living outside of North America, it's almost never been worth subscribing to Crunchyroll for the back catalog deals. It's always been a matter of whether Crunchyroll's simulcasts are worth it to you.

Under the system of royalties for what you watch, you pay for what you watch, and don't pay for what you don't watch. So if the simulcasts you get make it worth it, then it's worth it. If the simulcasts you get do not make it worth it, don't hold your breath waiting for back catalog deals that change that, because it's not likely to happen. There just do not seem to be anime rights holders in Europe that want to use Crunchyroll to stream their content.

The benefit to you in Finland ~ unlike here in Beijing ~ is that now when Funimation bids for a simulcast deal, they are doing it alongside Crunchyroll, and most of them are Worldwide outside of Asia. The back catalog part of the deal is just something somebody else might be interested in.
