No, that means that the entire series (which could still be 12-13 episodes) will be available until that time-- same deal they're doing with one of the other shows (EDIT: it's Gosick). Sort of like how each Fairy Tail episode is only available for 30 days.

The Crunchyroll page for the series says it's 12 episodes. They're likely just giving people extra time to finish it/start it. :]

Thanks for the info.
Well I do wish for it to be a 24/26 episode anime.

It likely means that there is someone else in negotiating for the rights in the UK/Ireland, so more limited rights were available there. Crunchyroll obviously wants to hold the rights as long as they can, this time they were able to get three months after the end of the season.

Since there are no Oz/NZ rights at all, one might speculate that Madman and MangaUK are in negotiations for rights, since they often share the cost of PAL authoring by Madman doing the original PAL authoring for their R4 release then re-authoring it as an R2 release for MangaUK for a fee.

Only one more show then? Well, hopefully it's Neo Nanoha.

FUNimation would stream Wandering Son regardless, so I think C-roll acquiring the streaming license for that would be pretty wasted.

I do wonder if ANN will end up streaming anything from this season.

It'll probably be the one I want (Hourou Musuko), right? Rolling Eyes

What's with all the limitations to the UK? Does that mean we have licensees interested? If so, that's great news.

Almost certainly ... if they just did not want to bother vetting the agreement for UK/Ireland, it would not have rights at all.

Doesn't mean a signed contract, of course ~ the difference between DVD and streaming royalties is such a big gap that the open possibility of a DVD distribution deal has to trump the certainty of streaming royalties.

Five tiers are emerging at Crunchroll:

Tier One: the US and Canada

Tier Two: the UK and Ireland

Tier Three: Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Portugal and Brazil

Tier Four*: Spanish America and the Caribbean, Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines, the Middle East, Africa, Australia and New Zealand

Tier Five: the rest of Europe, the rest of Asia

(* Australia and New Zealand are getting mostly different shows from the rest of this group ~ but about the same numbers ~ an across the board deal with Madman would probably push Australia/New Zealand into Tier Two or Three)

Click through again ~ whatever the hangup was, it must have been sorted out, as its back to both being listed for an announcement today. On past form, maybe within ten minutes of this comment.

I think it is more that they aren't happy with the potential ad revenue form the UK. Crunchyroll negotiate hard for the streaming rights for the UK/Ireland and Scandinavia and they can use the subscription numbers as leverage (there were tweets from Rob Pereyda that went into this in more detail a while back but Twitter sucks for digging up stuff like that).
I suppose it is possible that Beez pre-licensed them for DVD sub-only the same way they did Durarara!!, but I think it is most likely just Kadokawa being difficult.
