i dont think this really applies to Crunchyroll too much even if they do make an announcement because they remove most of the licensed material especially the popular. the only licensed stuff left on here are crap that wouldnt even sell lol

and WHAT?! crunchyroll got 4 million in funding?!?!?! lol. that cant be right


Lolz you must be kidding me cuz shows like Lucky Star and Kanon 2006 are very good and popular shows which have been licensed for like a long time and yet they are still up there and not removed yet! Its crunchyroll's fault for having moderators which don't do their job.

EDIT: however i love crunchyroll so please don't flame me about anything about CR and i don't mean all moderators. i mean there are a handful who just do bother to remove licensed anime.

EDIT : Whoops so lucky star is finally removed eh? it wasn't removed like 2 months ago although it was already licensed.

I totally hate you. >:(
Also about the crunchy Licencing Politics,im the first one AGAINST stupid Funimation and Bandai Entertainment.What about the rest of the world?How can the rest of the world who doesn't have animes for sale WATCH those animes.Only Americans think they can own animes.And i am not afraid to say it even out loud.

They're not trying to shut CR down. They just want to stop copyright infringement. Which will never happen on the internet. CR complies with everyone and takes down licensed anime.


The might start a movement though, but the worst that can happen is they shut down the site. Theyre not gonna come hunt us down one by one. OH NO! START PANICKING. boo... hehe

It's all about money the big corperations are throwing a fit because they aren't gettting money. I bet that if crunchyroll started to be a payed site, ,those big corperations wouldn't be mad (god I hope this doesn't become a pay site).

Update New: Gonzo/GDH Contacts Crunchyroll Video Site


GDH production company confirms it is in talks with video streaming site


The main administrator of Crunchyroll, a video-streaming website with many unauthorized anime videos, has said in an online post that the Gonzo/GDH anime production company contacted the site. According to Crunchyroll, the two companies have been "trading ideas about what we can do together so everyone will benefit." In his post, the adminstrator added a cover image of a dialogue recording script for episode #1 ("The Giant Tower of Druaga") of The Tower of Druaga: the Aegis of Uruk fantasy anime series. Gonzo will premiere this game-based anime in Japan on April 4. On the recording script is a signature of Taichi Hashimoto, a producer on Rosario + Vampire, Speed Grapher, and other Gonzo works.

Crunchyroll previously said that the DLE production company authorized it to show the first episode of the series that would eventually become Eagle Talon The Movie - The Chancellor Only Lives Twice. The episode is the first anime video on the site that reportedly received any official authorization. ANN is awaiting confirmation from both DLE and GDH. Crunchyroll has been the center of public attention recently since it acquired US$4.05 million in venture capital. Funimation and Bandai Entertainment issued statements yesterday expressing concern over copyright infringement, and both said that they notified the site of infringing content.

Update: GDH has confirmed that it has been talking with Crunchyroll. GDH is planning a formal press release in the next two weeks or later regarding newer Gonzo titles. Druaga's premiere date has also been corrected. Thanks, shadowblack.

What do I think is gonna happen - its gonna be a pay per view anime. CR gets their money, and so do the companies.

and bandai are a bunch of greedy assholes (40 dollars per DVD on the series true tears, and 1 freaking episode!!!)

CR removing animes? dont lie to me. a lot of licensed anime hasnt been removed yet form a long time. the moderators arent doing their job if they are the ones who are suppose to remove anime/other videos.


This has been asked before . It was answered with , " Do you want them to be removed ? "
I guess the mods were keeping it up longer or too busy approving videos users upload .
I heard there`s tons everyday .

The company's don't understand the reason we choose internet over the TV is 'cause the dubs suck. Also we like watching anime that hasn't reached our own countries.
