what's wrong with making a profit? 75k is good money if you ask me.
besides, shinji shares that money with two other founders.

I don't like this. I'm not familiar enough with the ways of the internet to be able to tell how much of this is bullshit, but I think it's hard to believe. Especially the way the site was when it first started should say enough regarding the articles callin CR a company etc.. At first it was only a small community sharing videos, no forum and no bandwidth problems. The expensive bandwidth is why by now users are asked to donate. Maybe Shinji has mortal enemies?


Yes. I agree. I have talked to shinji a couple times, and by what i have picked up from talking to him and watching him type, He seems nice and this does not seem like something he would do. I think this is Bullshit, but then again you never know. Well i asked meiskan in the mods chat....and she said they dont know anything about this and thinks one of the mods emailed shinji about it.

So hopefully we will get answers soon.

When did I, or the other people who quoted this ever say that something was wrong with this?

I actually have a lot of respect for Shinji right now, if what the aritcle is saying is true. $10 million dollars is a lot to turn down. It would help Shinji's pay for college and many other things. This article is also a bit biased. They even insult him when they have no clue what they are talking about:


you kidding? if shinji put that much in the bank he could live off of it in the eastern states

well if shinji does make a profit then yea there is a problem because what he would be doing would be technically illegal. if he put it all onto the site then it would only be a donation making him safe.

Wow, this is just insane. However, I'm grateful for Shinji because I had a chance to see lot of stuff that I would have missed out otherwise.

There's nothing illegal about whatever he does with that money. You willingly make a donation into his paypal, he doesn't steal it from you.

Is it even possible to make 75k a month off of ads and donations?
It also says "Crunchyroll has not raised any capital to date" so no ones is making money, IF I read that right and this is in the least bit reliable.
