But...but...but...Viz's video player doesn't support HD! How am I supposed to live without watching my Jojo 4 simulcast in HD? (Not to mention anyone not living in NA is screwed.)

*begins researching means of purchasing goat to sacrifice in order to get Diamond is Unbreakable on Crunchyroll as well*

It should be noted that Viz now owns the rights to the anime outright.

And this will probably mean we'll get a DVD/BR release that looks like some effort was actually put into it.

There is no reason to believe Part 4 won't be streamed on Crunchyroll yet as the first 3 were streamed there.

My only concern now is what happens to the music and all the references? Despite Warner not knowing what the hell to do with the series, they had the money to get all the music in order. Viz...not so much...

I imagine it'll end up on Cruncyroll. Sailor Moon Crystal, One-Punch Man, Naruto are examples.

One Punch Man is not on Crunchyroll. It's on Hulu and Daisuki. (I think CR could still be streaming Part 4).

Ugh, Terraformars...

I want to guess that this & Jojo was part of some package deal and that WB will be handling the legal crap over Jojo's ED songs. Guess we'll have to wait and see when those episodes get posted on Hulu.

As for Crunchyroll, there's still Anime Boston & Sakura-Con next weekend so if they don't announce Jojo Part 4 for themselves there then they might be screwed.

Well, I seriously hope Crunchyroll will still stream both of these. I've had enough with Funi taking HeroAca (and pretty much just existing in the first place) and now freaking Amazon entering the competition and taking noitaminA itself.

I know the suits in Japan are the ones that force them to buy more territories, but Christ, can't they at least separate Latin America from the US and Canada? At least the guys in Europe sometimes get the shows through other sites.

This doesn't do anything but keep piracy alive.

I wouldn't mind CR streaming it, but I'd be fine if they just sent them to Hulu. Hopefully they don't just do it from their website. I didn't buy a Hulu subscription to watch stuff on my computer.

One Punch Man is not on Crunchyroll. It's on Hulu and Daisuki. (I think CR could still be streaming Part 4).


Doh! Right, I was thinking of Daisuki for One-Punch

Well, this came out of the blue, but yeah, hope that CR would get it too, considering they also have parts 1-3, but Viz now having the rights to that too is something (for/on Hulu I'm assuming).

Anyways, hope it goes real Gureto-Daze!

Viz.com only uses embedded Hulu videos, so it should be fully available through Hulu if that is good enough for you. I think Darkmagick's problem is that Hulu only goes up to 720p.

I hope CR gets these two shows becuase viz streaming does not work in Canada so we'd be S O L for these series.

That is simply the announcement they have streaming rights, not the actual license itself.

Let's hope Crunchyroll still gets these. As I'm Canadian I'm locked out of all of legal Viz streams.

Their Canadian streaming options have been "coming soon" for what, 5+ years now?
