Think they paid big bucks for that? Is that how exclusives work typically?

Also, interesting that M3 is the one that Daisuki got the exclusive for. The other two (Mekaku City and Mahouka) have been picked up by CR...wonder why that is...


Think it's hard to believe people would pay big bucks for M3, more likely Cruchyroll has spent a lot already for this season and is willing to sacrifice a high budget Mecha. World Fool News is probably something cheap that Cruchyroll is throwing in for fun and laughter.


So it's not exclusive but nobody else wants it?

Also, it seems counterintuitive to me that CR wouldn't want a high budget mecha...that seems like precisely the kind of show they would (or should) want while world fool news seems like the kind of show they wouldn't (or shouldn't) care as much about...but what do I know lol.

Mod Note: you guys should try to make your post as presentable as possible by avoiding double posting or long quote towers. News Board is one of the best on MAL in term of quality post so we all need to keep it that way.

So they didn't pay more for exclusivity, flying Dog just chose one streaming site...just because? Shouldn't they want to make more money?


Merchandising could be a reason, Daisuki is also an online retailer but I haven't seen any sign of figures, model kits, or those kind of goods anywhere but they could offer them for our shores later on. M3 being a Daisuki exclusive outside of Japan and China could be a neat experiment in selling the series to our shores if merchandising being a reason turns out to be true.


Mod Edit: quote tower fixed.

I found the MAL entry

http://myanimelist.net/anime/18205/World_Fool_News

It looks and sounds like a comedy for Salarymen.


So CR picked up World Fool News but, from what I've seen, hasn't picked up M3? Interesting...
Yes, seems Daisuki got an exclusive there for M3 outside of Japan and China.

Wut. That's some mean word salad you got there, what the heck is World Fool News...Is that a real show?


Sounds like some low quality live action show that airs on NHK.

A winter title, Tesagure!, actually made it into the top 30?(it peaked at 29#, but I missed it). What is this sorcery? Is hell freezing over?

Lol, maybe this will make fan subbers or Crunchroll consider subbing a third season if that comes out.
Crunchyroll would have picked it up if they could. They just picked up "World Fool News" so obviously they'll pick up anything.
