I suppose that is a good enough way to shorten the title. I was hoping that CR would get this, and I'm glad they did. Now, if only they can get Attack on Titan, too... Razz

I'm a bit surprised that this ended up on Crunchyroll since it's a TBS show. Given the regions, I expect this is likely a sublicense from Sentai that will also run on Anime Network at some point.

Love the title! Gets across the point quite well.

I'm curious what you think is better than CR for simulcast streaming? I'd like to watch stuff there. Since Funi's site is horrible, hulu plays well but has commercials up the wazoo, and has lower res unless you pay to watch your commercials, and TAN is horrible...

I am still holding out some hope that RDG will get picked up by someone...

Me, too. I hadn't realized that no one had picked it up yet.

Also, I don't understand why anyone thinks that Funi's player (which is Hulu) is better than CR's player. Hulu has a bunch of commericals. CR does not. But I guess that's off-topic for the thread.

Good for CR. I think I'd be just as happy with RDG as AoT; I'm crossing my fingers that they'll get one of those two.

CR does have commercials if you don't subscriber, and they're often more irritating if then Hulu. However, CR is at least commercials free if you subscribe, unlike Hulu.

I didn't realize that. I've subscribed to CR for a *long* time. I also like using CR's player to stream to my PS3. I dunno if Hulu lets you do that (I imagine it does) but seeing anime in 1080P (even if upscaled) with no commercial interruptions is pretty nice. It may not be perfect, but it is the best set-up I've come across so far, at least for anime.

Scandinavia and South Africa but not the UK/Ireland? I'm thinking we have found some of Kaze streams for the season, I wonder whether they'll keep streaming them free to the UK on Anime-on-Demand.

Yes, its a big difference comparing Crunchy paid with HuluPlus and Crunchy free with Hulu free ~ AFAIU Hulu bit-starves their streams more at given resolutions so they sometimes buffer less at a given resolution if there is network congestion, but to my mind, Crunchyroll paid is better than HuluPlus, independent of the ads, and the ads on HuluPlus pushes it into the no comparison territory.

But I think Hulu free allows higher resolution than Crunchyroll free, and AFAIR while Hulu free has more ads, Crunchyroll free sometimes had more annoying ones.

To continue the off topic thread-jacking, Hulu Plus will stream to your PS3, but there is another solution: Playon.TV It is a software solution that turns your PC into a media server for many sites, including regular hulu. It has a low-cost subscription, but I got a lifetime membership when they switched to that. It plays pretty well to PS3 and Roku, less well to android, but so does everything, frankly.

Now back to your regularly scheduled thread...

For free! To be honest, i'm expecting AoD to die at the moment - their domain is due to expire next month (that could of course mean nothing), given the fact that Problem Children is still up to episode 6, we've had no communication for the past few months and Andrew is focusing on Anime Limited.

As for the simulcast itself, what's with 'SNAFU'?

They figured the English written on the cover was unnecessarily awkward so they decided to translate it. And we all rejoiced for having a shorter title to refer to.
