as much as i love Anime News Network, i dont recall Crunchyroll getting so... 'commercial'. for one it relies on mods to survive if im not wrong and even if they have four mill bucks, they will most probably have to spend it on improving the site for us

either way i support cr because compared to other sites its the easiest and most organised and most specialized site unlike youtube and veoh, which is so unorganized and hard to find. (i almost start ranting on it sheesh)

so for the sake of Anime, lets support cr's law abiding ways eh? :)


If you're doubting the source, why don't you do some research on the matter; multiple sites have reported the same news:

Backed by Private Equity Firm Venrock Associates:

http://www.crunchyroll.com/quoteforumpost?id=10850781
http://firefox.org/news/articles/1324/1/Crunchyroll-creates-more-ripples-throughout-anime-industry/Page1.html

Considered selling to Viacom:

Personally, I think that obtaining venture capital funds like this pushes CR into the realm of the big boys - into the realm of other streaming media providers, such as veoh or youtube.

In addition to this venture capital, CR is still earning money from donations and advertising revenue, which can actually be a lot of money. Rule of thumb: It gets increasingly expensive to purchase revenue adspace from popular sites (such as cr), and CR gets several million page views a day. I don't know the math, but I know for certain that it's a lot of money.

Where does all the money go, by the way?
It doesn't cost too much to maintain a server farm - definitely less than half a million a year.
Tech specialists can cost up to 55k a year, you'll need a few of those.
Executives, administration, perhaps renting office space - definitely less than four million a year, I would say. Although the numbers may at this point of time, approach a million a year.
CR doesn't _pay_ any money for it's media mods.
CR doesn't even _pay_ for the fansubs it receives.

So. Where does the money go? I'm asking a serious question, and if you can provide me with an answer, I'd be much obliged.
You decide.

Oh, also, CR is likely to get more commercial in the future. After getting all that venture capital, Venrock now has probably a say in the dealings of CR. That's probably also why CR's getting more legitimate and taking down a lot more licensed material, as well as making pacts, discussions, and negotiations with anime production companies to air copyrighted material.

I dun feel mad. Just a bit sad, but not mad. Shinji didn't license it, VizMedia did. Therefore, my anger is aimed at them. :3
