Now that Crunchyroll has finally announced the final show in their summer lineup I should mention that I’ve updated the Simulcast Links page. It has all the new simulcasts from Crunchyroll, plus all of the continuing simulcasts from the previous season. Summer has also seen the entry of two new players in the simulcast field. Bandai is doing their first simulcast this season with the series Sacred Seven, which they are streaming through Hulu and Crunchyroll.
There’s also NicoNico, the recently launched English version of a Japanese video site. NicoNico’s largest contribution to the simulcasting business would appear to be delaying some series on Crunchyroll. Any series that is on both sites will only be on NicoNico at first, with the episode going up on Crunchyroll a week later. On the positive side this has caused Crunchyroll to change how things work for non-subscribers, so now any series that was on NicoNico first is viewable by both subscribers and non-subscribers at the same time on Crunchyroll. Of course you still have to pay if you want to watch it in HD on Crunchyroll.
Alongside links to every simulcast there’s also information about the various sites that stream the simulcasts. I’ve also added logos for every site because logos are cool. So yeah. Go look at the page.
