Hey guys,

after a long time of trying to combat crappy advertisements, i've decided to just take them down for now. there were some issues with the ads not always being family-friendly, or some shady ads that redirected people -_-...

i personally always felt like ads ruined The Crunchyroll Experience (TM) and never liked them (although im a star supporter so i never saw ads anyway...) they were always text ads or stuff that wasnt even related to crunchyroll. if there ever are ads, they should at least be related to cr stuff, right? (anyone remember those true swords ads a long time ago? those were pretty cool, hahaha)

anyway, after the redesign of the site, i wanted to get rid of ugly parts, and ads was one of those parts. (there are still a ton of pages that look pretty bad tho -_- forgive me, i suck at designing things..)

crunchyroll originally started as a site for fun, it was a pure site that simply wanted everyone to experience the culture and joy that is asian media, but things are always more complicated than that -_-. so this is one of my attempts to make go back to crunchyroll roots and be purely about the user experience =D i want crunchyroll to be the best awesomest site on the internet ever, so it has to look good too, right? ;P

please please PLEASE thank the all crunchyroll star supporters for making this possible!!! without them, i wouldnt be able to do this. donations still aren't able to cover all of crunchyroll's costs, so i'll still continue finding ways to keep the site running~ but they do help a lot =D for sure i can keep ads off for 2 weeks, maybe longer..

please help out by donating here: http://www.crunchyroll.com/donate

enjoy an ad-free crunchyroll while it lasts~ thanks guys! cheers to a better and better crunchyroll
