Interesting that there was not anything announced for Germany yet while Wakanim France, Scandinavia and Russia had an announcement. I'm confused

So after asking Wakanim Germany they said that they do not have the streaming rights:

And what about Latin America? Funimation it's available in Brazil and here in México, but seems we won't be able to enjoy this series, at least legally.

Maybe it will go to Crunchyroll since it is going to be under one roof soon. It makes no sense to expand Funimation down there after the Crunchyroll purchase.

After an anime is licensed by Funimation, it won't be licensed by anyone else. Unless other company (such as AnimeOnegai) finally announces it, it's blocked in LATAM.

BTW, it was confirmed this will be available on Russia.

Even the Sony deal, I think Crunchyroll will have less winter animes, including Aniplex ones than Funi like the fall animes. These days all animes are licensed by Funi. Sad.

People should probably also be taking it up with the Japanese licensors not granting them worldwide streaming rights instead of just assuming it's all Funimation's decision. Also Funimation's purchase of Crunchyroll is not automatic as they still have to go through regulatory approval processes. I don't expect any changes to happen to Crunchyroll or Funimation anytime soon. It will at least be several months.

From the experiance of the takeover of viz media Europe by Crunchyroll around the same time last year the first minor changes started (a few new titles on both services) around April and the real impact came in July/August (first old titles moving to CR). And many transfers were just now in the begining of December.
I expect similar timings for the CR-takeover.

Seems that Japanese licensors are prefer Funimation over Crunchyroll.
