Yay! This completes my list for this season. Anything forthcoming is on my secondary list, but overall I'm happy.

And the show I'm looking forward to the most is going to be streaming on Crunchyroll. Thank goodness, I hope Another ends up being a great show and doesn't disappoint me.

I can't help but get a little disappointed when CR announces a series I really wanted. True I can watch the simulcast if I want, but I have to wonder what it does for the chances of the show getting a pickup for DVD/Bluray. Of course, the last few seasons we've seen Sentai and others pick up quite a few shows that CR was simulcasting so it's not as rare as it once was.

Good to see Another getting simulcasted, though I would have been more excited if it had been by someone that would be releasing it on physical media.

Even a simulcast by Funico would not have guaranteed a physical release. Given that Funimation hasn't been shy about picking up licensing Kadokawa properties that were simulcast on Crunchyroll before NicoNico.com existed, I would say the odds are every bit as good as if Funico did have it.

The real story here is that Crunchyroll shows Kadokawa as the publisher, indicating it was licensed directly from them (as opposed to via Sentai, etc.). Does this mean that despite being co-invested with the parent company of Nico Nico, Kadokawa isn't feeling the love and is flirting with an old flame?
