Better late than never.......?

Guess I'll go with CR for it now, since it doesn't appear to be delayed at all and I won't be watching until Saturday or Sunday each week anyway.

Funimation is the licensor who got Senran Kagura

Why am I not surprised and definitely is the good news I was waiting for.

I'm in Shock, Im@s now has a clusterfuck of US licenses, Funi has the spinoff to the true Idolmaster, CR has the actual main series, and Sentai has Xenoglossia.

It saves about an hour, at least. Normally the fansubs come out about 10 PM EST and this'll be 9 PM EST.

The question is should I watch episodes 10-13 on fansub or wait for CR to bring them out?

If I were in your position I'd go with the fansubs through 13 then switch. Unless you're not in much of a rush to watch it. If we had some idea of when they plan to do the first half it'd be easier to judge whether waiting is worth it, but we're really in the dark until they say more. Dog Days doesn't set the most promising precedent, but maybe they'll be faster about an ongoing show.

I think my plan right now is to make sure CR is translating the way they usually do, and if so, I'll switch to them since I've already seen the first 13. It's just ever so slightly more convenient to use them.

Figures they'd do something like this for a show I don't necessarily "need" it for though, even if I'll still likely switch to them. I just wish they'd "rescue" a show I dropped or skipped entirely because of slow of substandard fansubbing options.

"The site will stream the series, starting with episode 14, on January 12 at 9:00 p.m. EST. The first 13 episode will be available on the site at a later date."

So.. its just going to start in the middle of the series? Totally neglecting everything that had happened until "a later date"?


Wow talk about unexpected.

Hope they are a bit faster with the earlier episodes than they were with dog days season 1, although this time I've already seen most of the episodes. The question is should I watch episodes 10-13 on fansub or wait for CR to bring them out?

I think they know full well that anyone who cares about being current ASAP is watching the fansubs, and anyone who doesn't, also doesn't care about waiting a little longer for a show they haven't started yet. Especially if they're a "legal stream only" kind of person.

But uh, yeah weird.
