Pretty cool, don't know much about them and certainly wouldn't have known they're coming here without this post. Very likely I'll be subscribing there when it comes up though long time usage depends on how much anime they can actually get.

Subbed anime only, unless they want to try home-video distribution like in France. They confirmed it.

Uhm. In Spain I do not think you see that, more than anything because of the fact they are reluctant to bring something, and something as fantastic as wakamin France would be there, but .... everything will walk.
Here it would work more if CR invests more in Spain, and does more series and films than others would not catch or like Selecta Pelis to the cinema with association of publishers Aniplex and cinemas, but all this I see Black even in Spain.
