    via email inquiry to DAISUKI: What English speaking territories (US, UK, Australia, or more?) will be included with this upcoming DAISUKI streaming service (http://www.daisuki.net/en/)?
    Hello,

    thank you for your mail!

    Regarding your question:
    DAISUKI will be available world-wide, so the service area of DAISUKI will also cover non-English areas.

    Thank you.

    Nikkei: ADK, Toei, Aniplex, Sunrise, TMS, NAS, Dentsu to Stream Anime Overseas
    posted on 2013-02-26 20:45 EST

    Newspaper: Daisuki site to launch in April, aims to host 500+ titles with subtitles

    The Japanese financial newspaper Nikkei is reporting on Wednesday that Asatsu-DK (ADK) will begin streaming anime titles overseas in April. Six major anime companies are investing in ADK's subsidiary that is handling the streaming. The venture will translate and host popular works from over 500 titles, and it plans to recoup costs through fees and advertising.

    ADK issued third-party stocks worth 340 million yen (US$3.69 million) in its 100%-financed subsidiary Daisuki. The anime companies Toei Animation, Aniplex, Sunrise, TMS Entertainment, and Nihon Ad Systems (NAS), along with Dentsu, are investing in the subsidiary. ADK plans to retain a 26.3% stake in Daisuki.

    Nikkei notes that Toei's One Piece anime and Sunrise's Gundam anime have garnered many fans overseas. Daisuki's site will present new titles nearly simultaneously with their Japanese broadcasts. The venture will also stream live programs to anime fans in English.

    The newspaper adds that the site plans to begin an online commerce service in June and sell tie-in goods. It aims to gain about 3 million members in five years.

    Until now, the different anime companies have supplied their works separately to overseas streaming services. They plan to develop a streaming service on this site to bring together the leading titles and increase revenue.

    This will be interesting to see where this goes. Mind you, it has not been announced for what territories it plans to stream to, but I'm guessing North America will be one of them.

      I'm curious if this includes simulcasting, though the fact that its launching in April most likely means yes. If so I wonder how it'll affect current streaming sites if this indeed comes stateside...

            This sounds a lot like Quarkboy's Anime Sols web service that was in the works, though with a focus on newer titles, rather than classic series.

              I;m curious what this will mean for CR if this thing does include North America. They mentioned simulcasting in some capacity so if these companies start sending all their new titles there instead of CR, things'll be looking grim for them...

                I'll be curious to see what they are offering and how they will go about in their streaming and how CR will react to this.

                  That's still an unknown. It will be made available outside of Japan, but no region has been specified. The site (http://www.daisuki.net/en/) has an English page and there is a English PR (http://www.daisuki.net/common/pdf/En...ase_130227.pdf), so you would assume that the streaming will be subtitled in English (again not specified). And English subtitled streaming doesn't always automatically include North America.

                      Re: ADK tries their hand at International Streaming: Daisuki

                      I am wondering how this will turn out. It says they plan to "recoup costs through fees and advertising" and "Daisuki plans to sell anime tie-in goods on its website." That does sound a lot like Crunchyroll's approach, but in a more commercialized manner. More competition may not be a bad thing if they are really serious about this website, and it turns out to function well without causing more headaches. It is a good question to ask what will happen with the other sites who also wish to stream this content.

                      Whenever there is mention of another streaming website popping up I always think back to Anime Sols. I've tried to stop bringing it up so much though, since I feel like a broken record, and I know that Quarkboy is probably still working hard on getting it up and running. It remains the forthcoming streaming site I am most interested in seeing launch, but it is attempting to do a bit more than just stream and sell items.

                      I wonder if the market for streaming is going to start getting saturated once all of these websites launch in full effect. Is the intention to have as many legal streaming sites as pirate streaming websites so that it's easier to stumble on the legit sites instead for the average fan? I can only hope that will be the result.

                        So as likely as it seems, this isn't quite confirmed for US yet. How it affects Crunchyroll (and other simulcast providers) is my biggest concern. I think I actually might prefer if it doesn't become available in the US, because simulcasts are pretty much covered at this point, so there's no real reason for the Japanese companies to try a more direct approach of offering them. If it potentially means more simulcasts, that seems like it should be a good thing, but if titles that would've otherwise gone to Crunchyroll end up going to this probably inferior service instead, that would be a step back.

                          Shouldn't they still work with Crunchyroll? More licensing partners for the jpn company more money?

                            I wouldn't be surprised if they had shows up on both. There are plenty of shows on both CR and Hulu or CR and TAN (the AoA/Sentai shows) and I'd expect to see that happen here if it's available in the US.

                            With CR having simulcasts covered, what I'm most interested in seeing streamed are older (i.e., from before the days of simulcasting) catalogue titles from a streaming service. THAT is what I'm hoping this is.

                              Supposedly there's a talk that CrunchyRoll might actually be helping out with Daisuki in terms of getting these show available & subbed. Supposedly one of the heads at CR has been hinting on the premium forums that CR is involved in something really big that's been working their translation guys hard, something that will either change everything or bomb horribly, and CR's being extremely closed-mouthed on any sorts of hints. Being involved with Daisuki in terms of translation production certainly would be an interesting thing to see, if it's true.
