Oh lastly, when commenting don't be a dick and just give out a respectful view or insight regard the topic, thanks! <3


I get the strong sense, KG2 just posted this and legged it.

So KG2 respectfully

1. Put your sense of privilege aside and be grateful that devotees like the staff of CR put time and effort into acquiring the rights they have.
2. Do some maths then tell me if you think the CR subscription is going to pay for all anime everywhere.
3. Learn some economics

Looks like no one's reposted this yet. CR representatives comment on Netflix: https://www.inverse.com/article/37729-crunchyroll-anime-strike-streaming-netflix-amazon

TL;DR: Netflix can easily outbid CR to exclusively license whatever they want. But thankfully that's only a few shows per season. [Since the article, Netflix have started funding their own anime as well.]

If Netflix wanted to have every anime title, they could. They have enough money to do it, but I just don’t think that that would be in the cards for them…they’re never going to go really deep ‘cause it doesn’t make sense,” Arlen Marmel, General Manager of VRV, told Inverse in a separate interview. “If you think about the Crunchyroll subscriber base, or frankly any of the channel partners for VRV, whether it’s like a Shudder or Rooster Teeth, they all subscribe to Netflix,” Marmel added. “There’s a hundred percent overlap. So…they already have them if that makes sense.”

I will only pay for Crunchyroll. If I can't watch an anime on cruchyroll I will watch it for free on some non-legit site.
