Simple, AofA has licensed these two series from their respective production committees, which likely their parent company Aniplex in Japan is a member of those committees.

They have sub-licensed the streaming rights to Crunchyroll & Daisuki.

In all likelyhood, unless one of these series bombs big time, they will be releasing them in multiple low episode count, high price point, limited quantity, limited distribution, collector's editions here in the US, pricing them well above market prices and limiting their appeal to average anime fans.

You missed the part about further streaming platforms coming later and the bit that Daisuki will always be a week behind because CR got's to have all da money; It's now on the company letterhead. And Shinbo is the usual Shaft Supervising Director for March comes in like a lion while the actual director is Kenjiro Okada.

One last thing, while Occultic;Nine has nothing to do with 5pb's "semi-colon" series, they really want to be confused with them. My first thought was "I thought it was called Chaos;Child."

Too bad, I was looking forward to March comes in like a Lion. I guess I'll have to hope someone releases the manga over here. Sad
