I'm sure these are all fine shows but I do wish Crunchyroll would hurry up and stream Dragon Ball Z already.

I dont think the DBZ license is your avarage anime license lol. I believe Toei Animation has a major say in the matter.

They have the original Dragon Ball and GT on Hulu and Super is on Crunchyroll, so it's just weird DBZ isn't up on Crunchyroll. If we can't get DBZ for whatever reason, Yu Yu Hakusho would also be acceptable.

If DBZ did, it would probably be widescreen and I have no desire to see it like that maybe based on the Season Blu-rays. Though they could do DBZ Kai and that would be acceptable. Though the Final Chapters would be in widescreen.

First "Koi Koi 7," now "Baka and Test?" Is Crunchyroll running out of good anime to license?

There was quite a gap between when Funimation first licensed Yu Yu Hakusho and when they were finally able to begin streaming it on their site. I wouldn't be surprised if it were among the more problematic licenses in moving over the subtitled version.

Aside from the fact that you'll probably get some disagreement on your assessment of the latter, it is one of the titles Funimation brought over, so CR didn't have to go out and seek a license.

At this point, I won't be surprised if CR eventually streams 95% of the Funi catalog.

I think that's the end goal - for CR to have Funimation's entire catalog subbed while Funimation streams their catalog's dubs and simuldubs on their own site.
