Heyy guys,

I've just got back to crunchyroll a little while ago and is it just me or does the forums and community seem a little emptier and less lively than it was a 2-3 years ago. I feel like topics got many more replies and people would interact and chat on guestbooks and introduce themselves to eachother way more than they do now! Whats happened? Thoughts?

Many people just do not see the point of being anonymous friends. I would Crunchyroll's service has gone downhill, as the interest of previous generation of aging fans.


If anyone needs an onii-chan, I am here for you. The forums can be a lonely place without someone like me.

...No, I am not roleplaying a character. I am roleplaying myself.

Nope, it's better. Being able to listen to a song right there instead of having to click on the link to do it, though you can still do that if you want. No refreshing a page to see if someone else responded to a thread. You can see how many people are online or offline in a discord group(If you are on that group at the moment). There are bots that allow you to be able to do stuff with a simple command(if you know it(You'll be able to find that out quickly)). Overall it's a fun place to be. And of course, there is the voice chatting thing, if you choose to use it.

Velvet said it best. Discord is both text and voice, and is essentially a better version of Skype. The Forums have become unduly cancerous due to the political morons in General, and with most Anime fans hoping to chat in real time, Discord was perfect.

Thanks a great deal General Discussion crowd.

I did enjoy the forums for a time.

Now discord is freedom.

I absolutely have no idea. As for Chit-Chat, the amount of sexually motivated humor threads I believe were traced to my earlier days of asking for a girlfriend Imouto, out of humor, of course. Nevertheless, I invigorated many other people into posting similar content to this day, hence my reputation for "single handedly" destroying the forums. No, I just destroyed Chit-Chat.

I believe it may be the political trending, and forumers who are into politics drove others away while attracting those with like minds, or completely opposing views, in to join on the free for all. Politics on the internet have reached a boiling point, and since most anime fans do not care, they leave the forums entirely. Anime discussion wise? I am not sure.

The forums haven't changed. It's just the same people do not post anymore. They either have left or maybe are on Discord.

As many others have mentioned. Discord has taken many users time. The forums just aren't as appealing as a discord chat is. Many groups on CR also have discords. A lot of discords to choose from as well so its sort of taken over.

Personally I really like the lack of personal interaction and the whole shouting at a wall anonymously without actually having to have followed a 3 day long conversation real time.

I agree with what other people have already said. A lot of people have moved to Discord. I prefer Crunchyroll over Discord personally, but that's probably because I'm not interested in having lengthy conversations with people I don't care about on the internet. I'd rather just reply to thread topics I find interesting and maybe respond to other people's comments once or twice. I guess a lot of people actually prefer more conversation though.
