So gutted that The Garden Of Sinners is not available for us CR users over here in the UK

Would love to see and watch them all in their original versions with English subtitles

I am bit bummed that The Garden of Sinners isn't available in Australia, but oh well...

One question: would it be worth it to buy The Garden of Sinners Blu-rays? They seem a bit pricey.

Anyways... I have been meaning to watch Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom for quite a while, so thank you Crunchyroll! I am glad I am able to access it legally now.

Both of those are now available on Funimation's own streaming service. Do we know whether their agreement with CR includes non-simulcast shows that Funimation didn't have yet when the deal was made in 2016? If it does, and those shows eventually come here, it may be interesting to see what the regional availability is for them.


That is a good question. Is stuff like Hyouka or Gosick streaming anywhere else other than Funimation? Neither are on TubiTV which has a number of Funimation titles (https://tubitv.com/category/anime) and I don't think they're streaming on Amazon Prime (although they can be purchased and rented digitally).


I just watched Gosick on animelab ... a service run by Madman Entertainment, which mostly licenses stuff for Aust/NZ. For people here, it's great - and it has a lot of the popular, more older titles that Cunchyroll doesn't have. However, I'm pretty sure it's not a global thing, so it would depend on your location. It has things I can't see here like Cowboy Bebop, Gurren Lagann, Steins;Gate, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood... ect, Gosick too. Surprisingly enough, there aren't too many titles which overlap with their availability on here.

It's frustrating though, needing to hop over half a dozen places to find things, and even still having no luck. Crunchyroll is always my first go-to, but it has a tendency for letting me down.

On another note, I'm excited to see Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom on this list. It's something I've been curious about for a while.

Oh, I loved the first season of rosario x vampire, shame they ruined it by over tuning the ecchi parts in second season, it didn't need more fan service the plot was good enough to carry the show.

Oh well another show ruined because japanese directors think only boobs sell.

Also as I always add.

" Due licensing reasons some series may or may not be pirated".

@angelus29 It's not up to CR. These are old catalog shows from Funimation, and Funi either never had to rights for Latin America, or already licensed the rights to Amazon before their 2016 deal with CR. Since that deal, CR and Funi have worked together to try to get as many regions as possible for new simulcast shows. But when it comes to catalog titles, don't expect to get many for Latin America.

One exception in this announcement is The Garden of Sinners, which is here via Aniplex of America rather than Funimation, and is "available for members in North and South America."

Usually my taste is very broad. I supported CR for MONTHS now without watching a single second. But i think i will stop paying premium because 90%(LITERALLY 90%!) of what i want to watch/is in the CR News gives me the middle finger in the form of "Sorry, due to licensing limitations, videos are unavailable in your region.

I joined November 22, 2016 and payment history shows 13 x 4,99€. 13 Months premium and i watched 3 whole Animes(like every episode of a title). That's totaling at 53 episodes including 3-4 first episodes of a new show.

Am i THAT unique? I WANTED to Support CR and hoped it would get better...


P.S. I live in Germany not Wakanda ffs

@Drakkiar Have you checked out Wakanim? (See seasonal regional availability list: https://myanimelist.net/news/53555937)

CR has plenty of "worldwide ex Asia" simulcasts. If you're not watching any simulcasts, your tastes can't be that broad. But yeah, at any rate it clearly sounds like CR is not worth it to you.

I indeed don't like newer stuff. My favourite time was around Animes like Naruto(not shippuden), Neon Genesis Evangelion, Escaflown, Wolfs Rain, Blood+, Full Metal Panic, Gantz, Ghost in the Shell SAC, GTO, School Rumble. I am more of a binger than week to week guy. And every show on the main page is meh. I watch ALOT different stuff like Scifi- history, ninja, Superpower stuff, Drama, Romantic, Mecha, Spy stuff, Comedy and god so much more.

@Drakkiar Preferring to binge isn't really an issue since you could watch the new shows after they're done, but for me CR is mainly valuable for 2010's anime, if I weren't into that I would only subscribe occasionally.

(I like 70's/80's/90's and 2010's anime, 2000-2009 is mostly ugly and overrated IMO, with a few exceptions like Nodame Cantabile and Stand Alone Complex)

Don't like simulcasts, and don't live in the US... Then unfortunately, CR may not be a very good fit for you. Older titles are mostly only going to be available by sub-licensing from an existing source, such as Funimation or other US distributors, who at the time of those shows, weren't much interested in anything outside the US, so they didn't try to get any more rights than they needed to at the time.

Here's an article outlining the difficulties, if not impossibilities of re-opening licensing for older shows. It's asking more about what might be possible for fans to get the licenses themselves, but much of it isn't too different for a company like CR either:

https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/answerman/2018-02-09/.127558


For a licensor, it's very seldom a matter of a show just sitting on a shelf, gathering dust and not making any money. Licensing a show out to a publisher is a great deal of work on their part. If they're going to engage in all the legal and logistical legwork that's involved, it had better be worth it.

When an anime is produced, the producer has to engage in all sorts of contracts -- with the original creator, with the director, with the writers, with the musicians, with the talent, and with whoever else contributed money to the production. These contracts make them forever obligated to these people. Whenever a new opportunity comes along for that show, be it an international licensing deal, a new DVD or Blu-ray release in Japan, a streaming or TV deal or whatever else, all of those people have to be paid royalties, and some of those people have to be consulted. Some even get to sign off on the deal.

For older shows, or shows that were made without proper producer oversight, some of those contracts don't cover modern things like streaming. Some don't even cover the use of the work internationally. Those people (or their next of kin) then have to be tracked down and a new contract has to be agreed upon and signed with them. In the case of some of the master agreements with the creator, sometimes there's even an expiration date, after which the creator can completely kill any further release of the show, as if it never existed.

I would say we need a continuation of Rosario to get that sweet final fight animated, but the second season not only ran off the manga railroad tracks, it went through a deep dark forest where no light has ever shown. So unless they're willing to redo about half of Season Two And give us about two more seasons on top of that, I will be sticking to the manga.
