If you guys haven't noticed, crunchyroll has been attracting A LOT of attention from anime companies and fansubbers lately over the content we watch here on CR.

A lot of people are saying that crunchyroll is killing the anime genre and needs to be stopped. What's your opinion on it?

Personally I still like CR even though I see where the anime companies and fansubbers are coming from. As a far as the whole we're "paying to watch fansubbed anime" thing, we're only paying to watch higher-quality versions. Anyone can watch anything here without paying so this isn't some big scam or whatever. Overall though, I feel confident that companies will see that CR is a good place for the industry and that they should work with them.

pff without fansubbers anime wouldn't be as big in the west as it is right now. when there was hardly any anime at blockbusters, anime was already widely distributed on the net in archaic formats like viv (vivo?). I saw evangelion first on .viv lol. was a lot like a narrated slideshow. then kenshin on .rm.

japanese animators aren't that clueless about their stuff floating on the net. there was an interview some years ago actually thinking the funsubbing community for making their work globally known.

and whats more, I've bought the english DVDs and they are like...suck. the subtitles are plain and uneventful, full of translation errors, censorships, and just doesn't feel right. the opening songs aren't koraoke-rized, etc.

fuck off bandai and funi. and another fuck you for all the shitty anime games that I had to import.

Its a good argument. The thing is Shinji is making ALOT of money off this. and if you own a business you'd be losing alot of potential paying customers because of websites like these. not that I disagree with free anime.

I think CR promotes Anime, hell I've watched animes here I've never even heard of. But I'm sure "Shinji" can get a good team of lawyers :p

i say respect the fansubbing groups (anime and drams) out there. they're putting in a lot of hard work, time, and effort to help us. if you look around, you can find out where you can get the HQ verison with the subs without putting the fansubbing team in trouble. in all honesty, you don't even need to pay for HQ verison. if you're really determined to get your stuff without paying, you will find out how.

they're NOT making us pay to watch... i haven't paid a cent and i've finished lots of series already...

also, CR removes LICENSED stuff because he respects their copyrights...
they should be paying more attention to youtube and veoh...

then about the fansubbers, CR is trying to make its own subbing team...
and those sites that request not to upload their subs, he grants those wishes..
just like with dattebayo...

CR RULES!! SUPPORT CR FOR LIFE!!

I support cr no matter what. People are paying for higher quality videos and everything here unlicensed can be viewed for free. Cr is promoting anime instead of destroying it. It is thanks to Cr that i started watching anime like bleach, kanon 2006 and others types of anime which i don't have a clue about.
So, CRUNCHYROLL RULES

There's always going to be problems. I support and always will support CR. I understand where the companies are coming from but for right now, I'm not even going to worry about it. I enjoy CR and will continue to donate. The bottom line is everyone is trying to hard to make this work and give up the anime and dramas we all enjoy.

YES he respects them but honestly, come on if shinji didn't remove licensed anime this site would not still be here sites like tv-links are gone because of the copyrights issue.

hate to say it but dattebayo doesn't want to distribute out there anime so they can continue there business

you can read there messages they will tell you that

i remember when dattebayo got into trouble with naruto a while back and thats the reason they dont allow others to host vids from them.

all in all,fansubbing is essential to us because it allows us to watch uncensored good anime without our own western companies destroying them.

its a smart move by shinji to remove them but it doesnt mean i like whats happening

i am a paying supporter for cr and will be but the licensing of certain animes that i watch daily is a bitter sweet taste

i don't see your logic

people are paying for higher quality?

do you mean dvd

if so then okay

but my only question is you say you support cr but you don't donate ?

look i am a supporter for cr and will continue to support cr

i come to cr to watch high quality vids that i paid to watch

the donations is the front for basically the premium supporters meaning exclusive access to vids and limitless amount of bandwidth use


but your implying that those who pay for this service shouldn't be concerned and just look else where when we have put our money into this site

i just don't see the logic

and yes i do know how to get the shows elsewhere but doesnt mean i want to when i could get here \

quite frankly i dont want to have to look else where, but sites like veoh i guess will always be a back up

no i support c r completely even if i have to pay 4 it
