I was hoping for something like Bakuman or the Last Exile sequel.

It has been known since summer that CR wouldn't be getting the new Last Exile, since it was licensed by Funimation at that time.

They didn't get the first Bakuman series, so while it wasn't impossible that they would get the second, it was unlikely.

That said, if nothing in the current simulcasts catches your fancy, indeed there isn't much point in paying for a membership if you are not interested in enough of the library titles to make it worthwhile.

I doubt that. It probably has more to do with dealing with the rather problematic Geneon Universal. Keep in mind this is the same company that apparently only recently delivered the materials for those series Funimation licensed back in Summer 2010 (including among others, Shakugan no Shana II).

Thankfully you are correct. Funimation just announced it finally:

This sounds like its right, Quarkboy at mania.com this morning said

Haganai and Shana are not sourced in HD, however Haganai 4+ will switch to HD.
Shana 1-4 will be launching shortly (480p only for now). Episode 5 is also nearly done and we'll be caught up.

Haganai in particular was just a DV source, and one which was encoded post-telecine as well so even a perfect IVTC still leaves a slight interlace artifacts due to the compression effects bleeding across the fields.
Thankfully starting from episode 4 we're getting full HD sources. I hope we'll get replacements for 1-3 eventually as well.
Shana is only SD but a much better quality Canopus HQ source. If HD sources become available we'll obviously switch to them.

Well maybe if they get teh first season I'll take a look at it. But Digimon never really caught on. Maybe with a decent time slot as a filler in-between waiting for another show just to kill time...def not interested without the first season though. Not a good enough franchise to even bother looking up the first season either...

Anything past Season 3 sucks. Season 1 and two were awesome and season three is ok... They should have ended it there. Some of their games are awesome too but pokemon overshadows them in games. Honestly, Digimon at least beats Pokemon in TV shows.

Sweet! Never too old for Digimon! Time to strap on my nostalgia goggles I suppose (assuming they stream the first Xros Wars as well.)

This will start on Nov 12 on Crunchyroll, correct? I know the series premieres on Sundays on TV Asashi in Japan. I agree though with others in saying the first series (or what some people would call the first 2 series for Xros Wars) should be added as well because there is actually continuity between the first and second series that are essential to understanding the current saga.

Ug @ all the people in this thread acting like Digimon is somehow a "lesser" anime. (For being aimed at children, for being part of an old franchise, whatevs.)

It might not be for everyone, but I'm very happy about this announcement!

Also interesting to note they have Digimon Adventure 02 but not the original Digimon Adventure, and now they get the Xros Wars '02' without the first one, heh.

When do the episodes go up, though?

The original post said the series would start on CR next week. Episodes air on Sundays in Japan, meaning it'll be Saturday in the US, which means they should start being posted on Nov 12. I kind of hope they post the first 6 throughout this week though.

Of all the shows I wanted to watch this season, only Squid Girl is being simulcast and Fate/Zero is being latecast. The rest aren't even on this site at all. I noticed it was time for renewal and I just can't be bothered to. Good luck with next season.
