At this point Funimation has done more with their Viz deal than Crunchyroll. I hope they will add all of Inuyasha soon as Crunchyroll only has the first 54 episodes. More fans should watch Megalobox as it always needs more love.

Huh, very interesting. Wonder what's going on with Viz since they use Warner Media to distribute physical media, and their Europe division is a part of Crunchyroll which is also part of Warner. I would have thought Viz would be working closer with CR than Funi but I guess not.

Actually, they announced they were working together last year:

And now it looks like they switched over to Sentai:

Viz Europe was completely sold to Crunchyroll, that division is no longer part of Viz at all.

Yeah the whole crunchyroll working with viz media here in america (seperate from the whole europe deal) was a complete joke it seems as they pretty much did next to nothing that anyone is aware of for home video releases.

Seems like CR is really bad when it comes to these home video partnerships.

True. They released maybe one or two series on home video together? I remember Kancolle being one because of that orange banner at the top and spine. Same with Yamada and the 7 Witches

There actually were roughly a couple dozen series (maybe more) that were previous crunchyroll properties that they dubbed and released on home video back during the partnership (not even counting the ones that they released that they licensed together after the partnership started which was also a good bit.

Kinda funny. I just finished re-watching Coppelion on Hulu a few days ago. Gargantia was alright, but haven't had an urge to watch again, and wasn't a fan of the others.
