There's a chance Wakanim will get it, I think. Wait, does Norway even have that service?

But I do agree. If such a high-profile show doesn't get official simulcast, there's simply no way people will just NOT watch it. For such occasions, I always have my trustworthy peg and and an eyepatch hanging on the rack Smile ...

The first season, the special and the second season were streamed in Finland on CR (and maybe the rest of the Nordic countries?), but not the 3rd season. What gives? Though if I remember correctly the 2nd season wasn't simulcast, it was like a couple of episodes behind. Maybe they'll do that again? Somehow I doubt it, but I wouldn't mind to be honest since I plan to wait for all the episodes to air so that I can binge watch it.

So, they were too cheap to get worldwide for the third season?

Almost as annoying as Attack on Titan season 2+3 being available but not season 1. Ha ha ha. Rolling Eyes

Isn't Aniplex the one with the license? What could CR do?

Aniplex Japan changed how they handled international licensing at around the time Dog Days'' (the 3rd series) aired, which was the season after SAO 2 ended. Since then, the Aniplex titles CR has been able to get have only been from Aniplex of America, and they have been limited to their territories.
