Anime Network VOD Reports/Updates/Questions Thread (2022)

Odd, I don’t have that on the list for FVOD to get this month and I didn’t get it.

sigh fine, Jabbabi has to be different.

EDIT: Never mind… it’s on the schedule, I just missed it.

Okay, time is slipping away from me the past two weeks. Sorry!
But even though I’ve missed the boat again this week, I thought I’d send a brief proof-of-life anyway:

The short version: Got everything (I think) for both 8/11 & 8/18 on both Cutting Edge and On Demand, and it all starts up and they regularized and de-dottified almost all of the names (the Kotobuki movie being an exception) sometime around 8/14. Except for some of the Run with the Wind episodes disappearing early (because they arrived early), there are no anomalies. All of the episodes even had their promos and Groaning Mechas, with only one exception: Cardfighters #10. The shipping team is going great guns now–thanks!

But if this is supposed to be a proof-of-life, how do you know it’s really from me and not my kidnappers? Hmm…how about…“At the Sentai Sports Festival, the Decently Clad Club ran into a minor difficulty with Cardfight! Vanguard overDress when the alien parasite clothing wasn’t sure if it should infest the characters, or infest the cards that were sometimes dressed with other cards, or infest the characters depicted on the cards. They then had to figure out how to dress the characters on the cards, given that it would be a matter of a two-dimensional representation of a three-dimensional parasite infesting a two-dimensional representation of a two-dimensional representation of a character, on a two-dimensional representation of the two-dimensional surface of a two-dimensional representation of a three-dimensional card. Eventually they solved this problem by kidnapping the narrator [me] and having him bound and gagged so he would STFU. Unfortunately, the kidnappers, being kids, napped, and I escaped.”

Sufficient proof?

Thanks!

WARNING - LONG POST
tl/dr version: No skips found in the last 3 weeks worth of content. Skips remain in week 4 content, but that content will roll off later in the week. Read on and I’ll show my work.

DirecTV Indiana 46544

  1. Welcome to the FNG (are we still allowed to call them that?).
  2. I’m not Joe, but considering all the chirping I’ve done over the last couple of years about skips, the least I can do is tell you what I see…

Something has changed in the last few days. The “Missed It? Watch Now” section of the download area usually has one weeks worth of content. For the most current week (8/18) that should be 12 or so episodes, presuming I can count. At least, that’s what I remember seeing Fri./Sat. when I downloaded the week’s content. As I write this (01:10 am edt), there are 27 episodes available, spanning the last 3 week’s worth of content. Elsewhere, the “Action Zone”, “Girl Power” and “Super Happy Fun Time” sections contained (with a few exceptions detailed later) the most recent four weeks worth of content. I downloaded all but two episodes (those had been downloaded earlier, but I haven’t watched them yet).
With the exception of the two episodes mentioned above, I scanned all of the available episodes for the presence of three things (which in my experience is a clear indicator of whether a particular episode will skip) - the HIDIVE ad and the TAN mecha/sailboat intro at the beginning of the ep, and the TAN outro at the end of the episode. In those episodes where no ad/intro/outro appeared, I confirmed the presence of at least one skip. Where I did confirm the presence of the ad/intro/outro, I didn’t bother scanning for skips, as I have never in two years seen one skip if the ad/intro/outro were present.
I will now try to cut/paste a table showing my results. Sorry about the spacing - I don’t use formatting tools enough, it seems…

Notes:
X = HIDIVE ad confirmed NOT present. TAN intro/outro confirmed NOT present.
At least one skip confirmed.
ok = HIDIVE ad confirmed present. TAN intro/outro confirmed present. No skips
observed, but did not watch every episode in its entirety.

  • = Episode downloaded, but played a blank screen for several minutes before
    prompting to keep/delete the episode.
    ** = The episode was not listed as available for download.
    *** = Duplicate episodes were provided. Both appeared OK.
    **** = Downloaded earlier, haven’t watched yet
    .
    Summary: All of the currently available content for the last 3 weeks appears to be skip-free. Week 4 content continues to contain skips, but that content expires in a few days The fact that so much content in the “Missed It? Watch Now” section suggests that revised skip-free content had been uploaded in the last few days. I want to say that I had seen skipping content in the 8/4 and 8/11 uploads, but I wasn’t logging observations at the time so I can’t be positive I will continue to monitor.

And, thanks to those responsible for finally making progress on a long-running problem. Here’s hoping you’ve found a permanent solution. Thanks again.

A final note about the “blank” content. I and other DTV subscribers have reported this occasionally, and even when I don’t report it, it seems to be corrected within a day or two. Of the “blank” content noted today, only one episode was part of a series I was currently watching, and even though it was blank today, I remember seeing To Love Ru Darkness ep. 8 when I downloaded it earlier in August.

WARNING: ANOTHER LONG POST!

Here is an attempt to make the table in my post above into a more readable/understandable outline-style and using the formatting tools available here…

Edit: Apparently, “Princess Principal Crown Handler” is a series of 6 movies, only two of which have been released. I did watch the first one, and it played flawlessly. The outline has been modified accordingly.

Edit 2 (8/25): Watched "The Magnificent KOTOBUKI: The Movie. It included the TAN intro/outro, and played without incident. The outline has been modified accordingly.

This should account for all content from the weeks 7/28 thru 8/18. All of the currently-skipping content should roll off the list at midnight EDT on 8/26. None of the remaining content from that time period should be skip free, pending the status of the content due today (8/25).

As always, thanks to all who made it happen, wherever in the “supply chain” they may be. Now, to see if it can be maintained…

DirecTV Indiana, 46544

First off, congratulations! I found ((no)) skips in the content made available on 8/25. Now, I did not watch every program in its entirety, but I did confirm that every program included the appropriate HIDIVE ad and TAN intro/outro, which has been a consistent indicator of whether skips would or would not be present. I can confirm that in the programs that I did watch, no skips were encounter - all those programs played flawlessly. As always, thanks to all who made it happen, wherever in the “supply chain” they may be. Keep up the good work.

I did see a couple of oddities that didn’t affect my ability to watch the content.

  1. Ordinarily, DirecTV files the current week’s TAN content under the “Missed It? Watch Now!” header. All four weeks’ worth of available content (including the current week’s) are filed under one of the “Action Zone”, “Girl Power” and “Super Happy Fun Time” headers. This week, along with the current week’s content, two additional programs appeared under the “Missed It? Watch Now!” header: "Sayuki RELOAD ZEROIN, ch. 1 and Joshiraku, ch. 9. Both also have duplicate entries under the AZ and GP headers, respectively - but ((not)) under the “Missed It? Watch Now!” header.

  2. Similar to a week ago, duplicate entries were found for two programs: To LoveRu Darkness 2nd, ep. 2 and Tsukipro The Animation 2, ep. 2. The duplicate entries for both programs appear both under the “Missed It? Watch Now” and the “SHFT” headers. All 4 programs downloaded and played flawlessly

I don’t think a list of all the content is needed, but I can furnish it upon request.

It seems like ages since I’ve been able to sit down and actually watch TAN content without having to jerk around with the remote trying to fill in what was being skipped over. Thanks again.

The short version:

I think all the episodes for this week have arrived on Cutting Edge and On Demand. (I’m assuming Princess Principal: Crown Handler is a one-off movie.) Everything starts up, everything has its promo and Groaning Mecha.

The only anomalies are that Saiyuki Zeroin #1 & Joshiraku #9 are now merged episodes, each two copies of the same episode. Any of the kludges will untangle them. The one interesting thing was that this time I got to watch the merge occur in slow motion:

On Monday 8/22, second copies of Saiyuki Zeroin #1 & Joshiraku #9 appeared on Cutting Edge;

On Tuesday 8/23 second copies of Saiyuki Zeroin #1 & Joshiraku #9 appeared on On Demand, merged with the copies that were already there on On Demand–but the copies on Cutting Edge remained separate;

At midnight on Wednesday 8/24–Thursday 8/25, this week’s shipment arrived on Cutting Edge; the duplicate episodes remained separate;

But later on, in the wee hours of Thursday 8/25, when the shipment arrived on On Demand, bingo! the episodes merged. So that’s the job that does the dirty work.

I’m guessing this is because I didn’t get those two episodes and resent them to all Spectrum users.

Oh? Would this perhaps be associated with the extra copies of those two episodes received by DTV earlier?
