    Nothing to do with this post, but I hadn’t realized the implications of how federation works mean that this post which comes from the ml community (which does not federate with ani.social) can still be crossposted to this community (on ani.social) as long as it is done so by a third instance that federates with both (world in this case).

      I think you’re still slightly misunderstanding a bit. The post was made to lemmy.ml by a user on lemmy.world, I (bookwormstory.social) then crossposted it to ani.social. The only relevant part here allowing for the crosspost was me (bookwormstoy.social) not being defederated with lemmy.ml. I think the crosspost link only defaults to lemmy.world because the OP is on that instance.

      But yeah the gist is correct, as long as there is some path to an instance that is federated content can land there, it might need a couple crossposts to get there though.

    It’d be nice if they were transparent enough to say specifically which areas they’re pulling out of, but I guess transparency has never been the Sentai way of doing things.

      Being transparent about that would be way too easy. All I can say is if you’re affected you should have gotten an E-Mail already (at least I did)

    HiDive didn’t have a lot of stuff I watched but they did have some of my favorites (like Eminence in Shadow) so this is a real shame.

    I hope Crunchyroll picks up the shows, if not I’ll guess I’ll go visit my favorite pirate site a bit more often from now on.

    Do you know what will always be available in areas outside North America? Piracy.

    That and some of Crunchyroll originals are the reason why I don’t support this streaming industry.

      Eh, I’ve got a Crunchyroll subscription. Paired with Crunchyroll Unblocker it’s worth it for me. Without that pretty little Add-On it’d be a hard pass given how much just plain isn’t available here or locked behind tripple paywalls by Amazon.

        Unfortunately, that workaround doesn’t work for when you want to watch on TV, I believe.

          That is surprisingly a use case I haven’t stumbled upon so I can’t say for sure. I would assume if the TV supports casting you could “simply” cast the PC browser with Crunchyroll Unblocker to the TV but I haven’t tested that so pure speculation.

          Alternatively there’s a possibility for Crunchyroll Unblocker to work on Firefox Android (which should be available for TVs if they use Android TV) when they open up their Android Extension Platform to developers (should be sometime soon™).

            The casting option doesn’t work, since only chromium browser support it and the extension is gone from the chrome store.

            Unless one casts the screen directly, but that gives potato quality image.
