It surprises me, that with SBY2199 airing in Japan now, that Crunchyroll did not get the simulcast rites. That would have allowed it to get to a wider audience. Of course if what is being said about sensitivities about WWII being the deciding factor as to it not being done, I understand. But I think this actually would have been a benefit versus trying to placate another country.
Crunchyroll probably can't get the rights due to StarBlazers 2199 being in the works. There's probably more benefit to the production committee if they just forgo subbed streams for dubs, since it prevents streams from becoming a sticking point with broadcasters.
