one more question So why not Europe too ?

If you move to Canada where I am, then you can watch One Piece. It is based upon the IP address where you are; it doesn't know or care where your bought your laptop. Of course this is why... we can't say.

For instance when I traveled to India recently I could watch about six simulcasts. If you think Europe has it bad, try India!


in india its expected why would u not give europe a show like this its stupid

why wouldn't they license something as big as this into europe where thousands will watch it when in south african maybe a few thousands will watch it.. makes no sense.

If you observe licenses, the "English speaking countries" of the US, Canada, UK, South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand commonly get licensed as one block, with one or more sometimes left out if there was some type of license conflict. South Africa rarely has any conflicts (and the last I checked, probably had the greatest number of series this season aside from the US & Canada).

Except for the UK (and Ireland) the remainder of Europe more often than not gets carved up, making obtaining licenses more complicated (and complications tend to increase expense).

Its supposed to be the location of the ISP you are using to get onto the Internet ~ so if a US member goes on vacation to the West Indies, their laptop will be limited to the "and the Caribbean" licenses.

That is, after all, how those alternative means of accessing Crunchyroll work. Its also why those same means don't work as well for Hulu, because Hulu works hard to detect the actual IP addressed used by those alternative means.

That's why Daisuki has One Piece for North America, India, Thailand, Vietnam, and Indonesia ... they had to work to untangle the license restrictions in the US, but India, Thailand, Vietnam and Indonesia probably just happened to be countries where the deals in place were for non-exclusive streaming rights.

Remember that the company that "gives" the country rights is Toei, not Crunchyroll, and if Toei already gave exclusive rights to one company, they cannot even stream the show themselves in that country, never mind granting the rights to Crunchyroll.

Also remember that broadcast networks often sign deals all broadcast & digital distribution for multiple years and decide independently whether or not to keep the title on the air, so its easy for a broadcast deal from five to ten years ago to block streaming today.

South Africa is like The Ancient One said ~ South Africa is a weird case because in DVD license regions its included in R2 with Europe and the Middle East (and, bizarrely, Australia/New Zealand and the rest of Oceania is in the same region with Latin America):


... while in BD regions the rest of Africa joins Europe, the Middle East and South Africa in Region B, along with Australia/New Zealand.

I take it "multi-layered technicalities" meaning that the real world is more complex than the fantasies of some fans, and "taking your words out of context" meaning putting your demands in the context of their real world consequences in terms of the actual loss of access to anime series if Crunchyroll were to get a reputation in Japan of being a loose talking blabbermouth because they acted like you demand that they act.


From my first response to now you've refused to acknowledge in any instance that CR has handled the matter poorly ...

You haven't cited any instance where in the real world they actually could have handled it any better. Clearly, no matter how much they say, you'll complain about them not saying more, because you are using "they are not saying enough" as your justification for whinging about the lack of access.

Which is backwards, since your lack of access does suck, and if you just stuck to that without making all this nonsense up about what Crunchyroll could have said which would have prevented it from sucking so bad, you would have been on firm ground.

People have to realise that things aren't that simple. Crunchyroll does it's best to bring what they're able to license to as many regions as they possibly can, however they're not always able to secure the rights to some regions because other companies already hold these rights, so they do not have permission by law to show the titles in those regions. So stop screaming in anger at Cruncyroll, get mad at who ever blocked them from getting the rights in your country.


agreed.

Now all we need on here is Detective Conan, the Japanese MLP, Tokusatsu shows, an area for 17+ where we can watch the uncut versions of all the anime on Crunchyroll and Shinji can have my soul. Because we SO NEED to be able to watch Fist of the North Star uncut on here! Just saying.

Detective Conan isn't impossible, as Funimation only has a license to the early episodes, but given the lack of requests for it vs. One Piece, it seems unlikely.

As to the Japanese MLP, it seems odd that someone on CR is requesting a dubbed show.

That aside, it is unlikely the company in Japan has the rights to license it anywhere outside of Japan, since they had to license it from the publisher in the United States.

CR wouldn't need a separate "17+" area for uncut versions, they would need more money. CR has no problem with uncut material (just check out the first two Queen's Blade series here vs. Rebellion if you need convincing). When you see an uncensored version of a show CR is showing censored, the uncensored version is coming from a premium network; typically AT-X, which goes for the equivalent of about $23 per month in Japan.

There shouldn't be any reason for Fist of the North Star to be censored, since it was a library title. If it is censored, it would be because that was the version Toei foisted on CR (as well as Funimation). Frankly, given the poor video and audio quality of a couple of other older Toei series I've seen here, I wouldn't be surprised if the masters were based on some old tape for TV broadcast, or worse, versions for some old online service from about a decade ago.
