And U.S. is excluded from Selector Infected Wixoss ;.;

I'm curious to see how many more announcements will be up tomorrow though.

From the article:
Quote:
Funimation announced earlier on Wednesday that it will stream the series in the United States.

I expect Funimation also has it for Canada as well, as it isn't available in English on CR for Canada (and likely not in English for any of the other listed countries). If you are in Canada and viewing on CR, you'll need to switch your language to French to access it if you normally view in English.

I know most people expected Mushishi to be on CR but it's nice having it confirmed. Smile This is one of my top 5 of all time so I'm ecstatic to see it come back after all this time to continue the story. Anything added past this is just gravy as far as I'm concerned. Very Happy

I know I shouldn't complain because Americans get more streaming anime than anywhere else, but...

Screw Funimation! In order to see this show, I have to wait a week and watch with ads or pay twice as much for streaming privileges as people who can watch it on CR.

On the other hand, this is really great news for international Crunchyroll subscribers who want to watch Wixoss.

Probably watch it for its name itself.

I hardly see how $7.95 a month is "twice as much" as $6.95 a month. Confused

Yeah, not sure about that math. On the other hand, I always have a hard time getting Funi streams to play smoothly, even using OpenDNS, so I prefer CR in general. Its kind of a shame that Funi is monopolizing the stream to be honest. If they simulcast it on Hulu it will be okay I suppose.

On another note, I wonder if this new Mushishi series will inspire a Blu-ray of season one. It doesn't look like there is much overlap as far as production goes between the seasons, but even so, one can hope. I have been itching to add Mushishi to my collection for a while.

Depends. Not every country was on that list. And now I know for sure; I will follow Wixoss through 'alternate' means.

Oh well, not like region-blocking was ever going to stop anyone in the first place, eh Wink ..

Woohoo, Mushishi! I like hearing confirmation that it's on Crunchyroll.

Should probably make a note that the Canadian streaming rights for Selector Infected Wixoss is for the French-speaking side only.
