It's probably worth mentioning that Fruits Basket Season 2 on Funimation is English DUB ONLY for whatever reason. It's the first show I've come across where they don't even give you the option to change it to original JPN audio + subtitles.

Netflix India simulcasting Kaguya Sama Love is War S2 (2 weeks late after Japanese Simulcast).

Wakanim, Funimation, and AnimeLab are all owned by Sony now and thus all have the same shows, so far I haven't noticed any instance of only one or two taking a show without the others taking it. Yet that is the case in your summary. I don't evadince for AnimeLab adding things like diary of our days at the breakwater or alchemist bungou, but I can see them on the site. It's best to just assume that if one of those 3 have it, all 3 do.

Would be nice if the page for Asatir: Mirai no Mukashi Banashi (Future Folktales) could get approved by admin, cuz as-is it doesn’t even show up in the Spring season listings, and Ep 1 has already posted to Hidive, which is the only reason i discovered it even exists =\

AnimeLab will also stream Arte

I guess Oregairu will be the only anime this season that I will watch illegally then.
