Given they streamed the first season, definitely not a surprise, and I can't say I'm not a little interested in this, but...

Now crunchyroll only has a single announcement left, and both Pyscho Pass and Robotics;Notes, my two most anticipated shows of the season, have yet to get a streaming announcement anywhere. Was really hoping crunchyroll would pick them both up. Hopefully they'll at least get one, and maybe Funimation can get the other for it's (not quite) simulcast.

UK residents (and many others) can't watch it legally...
And so my piracy of this work continues... >_>

Glad they are at least bringing it around I guess, more people to chat to about the work. IIRC, they got the show a week after it started the first season last time.

Those slots haven't been an accurate reflection of how many shows CR get per season since.... ever? They go up and down, at least once I think they even had a slot open before announcing they were done- and the slot disappeared. Both shows still have possibilities to be picked up by CR... and then there's Funimation. they have Steins; Gate, a decent relationship with noitaminA and an irritating practice of announcing a stream a week after it premieres, and starting their own stream about 3 weeks later.

Indeed once, long ago, the number of boxes decreased. That is the reason that CR is rather conservative with the boxes, and they now represent agreements that are in place (although details such as regions and premiere date may still be open for negotiation).

It is for that very reason that they shouldn't be counted out until they fill the final box and don't add another one.

For the record, CR didn't announce their final 2 titles for this past summer season until July 18. There have also been at least two seasons in the past where they added a series as late as 6-7 weeks into the season.

EDIT:

Crunchyroll now has two additional "?" boxes on their lineup page.

I was pretty excited about this season, but not so much anymore.

Crunchyroll's lineup, while full of titles, are not the ones people have been wanting.

As for myself, I may try out 3 or 4 of the new titles, but only one title of my "most anticipated" is actually listed. Kind of disappointing so far.

Sad bummer.

How many of your "most anticipated" titles have yet to even air?


Yeah, I guess nobody was really wanting Magi. Smile

SO this is region locked?

Maybe there is a good reason for region locking...

Nah, both region locking and this series suck.
