It seems that way. Some shows are licensed far enough in advance that there are probably going to be some that wind up on both service. Since both versions will be on CR, I'm assuming adjustments had to be made if both chipped in for the license.

I do find it interesting the Funimation is only getting the dubbed version, though. From reading the interview about Funimation wanting to expand to other markets, and CR not wanting that, and from the fact that Funimation no longer streams shows that it dubbed for CR, and even a few that were simuldubbed during the partnership, it seems like the partnership might have been too lopsided to last.

He's also in the dub for Sirius the Jaeger, so hopefully we'll be hearing more of him.

I kind of wish they had gotten Bryce Papenbrook as Sword Hero for obvious reasons...

I love how this all sounds like two divorced parents forced to attend their kid's Christmas pageant.

I wonder how long the show will remain on CR. CR on it's way out unless it able get more supplies of anime. I've read Rise for bit, i haven't watched the anime yet. I may go for the sub if i can find it. I'm not dub fan.

What do you mean? CR co-produced this?
