So just to start off I have two ideas I wish CR had.

1. Kind of like a kickstarter pledge that people can donate to a specific anime and if the goal is reached maybe another season of that anime could happen.

I understand there are a lot of issues with this idea as that the Creators or Studios would have to agree to this so maybe not every anime would have this option. However this I think would be great for anime and help Crunchyroll build more partners since they could also sell their work and maybe even the work of and unmade anime.

2. I don't think you should be allowed to review till episode 3.

I believe that reviewing on episode one is to hasty of a review while a lot of episodes ones are not amazing. Reviewing an Overall anime based on one episode I feel is a bit harsh and that a minimum of three episodes should be required.

Funding for anime is very complicated, and usually involves a large number of parties (book/manga publishers, toy manufacturers, video game developers, music producers, etc.), and is almost never as simple as just giving enough money to the studios, who are usually just work-for-hire. A lot of shows are produced just to promote manga sales, and a single season of anime may accomplish that sufficiently that the original publishers aren't interested in continuing with additional seasons.

This is a good, if slightly dated, series of articles:

I agree with eyeofpain and also getting another season is actually up to the anime company or whatever they are called. Although Crunchyroll may be affiliated to certain companies in Japan but they're not actually the same thing. It also depends on the author of any anime that's released if they wish for it to continue or whether it's even worth it to be released as a series or a continuation.


Technically, it is up to the watcher to decide when to post a review. I usually never read the review because most of the time people either troll or just put horribly bad reviews. I prefer watching and if I ever feel like it, then I'll post my own review. Usually first or second episode is the bigger part of telling the story of whether it's good or not. If it's starts off meh, then that's a so-so or okay start. It may end up good or may end up bad comparing to how close it was to the original game or manga/book/novel. If it's not close enough, then usually people post how the original is so much better.
