There are a great deal of series remaining unlicensed. I wonder if HIDIVE/Sentai will license any of them or if Sonyroll will scoop up all the remainders.

Crunchy’s list still has a lot of TBA boxes to fill.

2 Likes

Does Sonyroll ever fill up all of the TBA boxes? They only want to make people think there’s much more coming.

2 Likes

They’ll leave at most one or two not flipped over. In those cases, the shows tend to be ones that start really late in the season, sometimes late enough that they could have waited until the next season. Are there any shows starting in February or March?

I cannot believe that The Angel Next Door Spoils Me Rotten is still unlicensed. The studio, project No.9, has licensed series to both CR and HIDIVE, so there’s a chance we may still pick it up, since LiveChart lists it as unlicensed. The other one I’d like to see picked up is The Magical Revolution of the Reincarnated Princess and the Genius Young Lady.

Oh, and D4DJ All Mix!

S5R mod Edit: Updated (Finally)

Sonyroll’s like a shopper at a bin store. They waited for the very last moment and probably snatched up those series for a song.

This happens EVERY season that I have followed this type of stuff. Crunchy has always done this, even before we heard about Sony wanting to buy them

Perhaps, but it seems to have gotten worse under Sony’s ownership.

It hasn’t gotten worse. Back when the number of shows they got in a season was small enough to post a news article for each show, or maybe a batch of show, I think I remember them posting the article that they got a show the next day after it aired. This may have happened before VRV was made.

What I think is happening is that the contracts for some of these shows are taking so long to be filled out that they have to wait until almost air time to announce it. Seeing as they can put TBA slots on the season posts now, I assume the contracts were basically a done deal, but they can’t say anything beyond that TBA until it’s officially done. They didn’t say final update for the current season though, so they might still be trying to get some more shows this season, but they’re not sure if they can actually get them.

Thinking about it, I think the reason it seems like Sonyroll is grabbing so many shows is because they are grabbing two licensors’ worth of anime. The shows they get now used to be spread between CR and Funimation.
