Ok, i admit that i DID cut the other parts.....

Recently you removed the two most popular series on your site, Naruto and Bleach. Those series have been licensed for years now, and yet Crunchyroll continued to host them – and charge people for the privilege of watching the hi-res versions – in 2007 and for the first few months of this year. In your forums, there are pages and pages of people complaining – many suggesting that you will lose a big chunk of your userbase as a result of removing those titles. Do you think there's any truth to that?

Regardless of the situation, we always comply with any takedown requests.

What can you tell us about your partnership with Gonzo. Did Gonzo approach you or did you approach them?

I can't comment on that, sorry.

Which Gonzo titles do you currently plan on streaming?

The Tower of Druaga series and Blassreiter.

Are any of those exclusive to Crunchyroll?

No.

So you guys are hosting these series as part of Gonzo's plan, but your site is not the focus of it.

That's fair to say.

In the future, do you have any plans to host one or more series – using the proper legal channels and sanctioned by the production company - exclusively? Meaning the only place to see it would be Crunchyroll?

I don't think it's our intention to have exclusives. There are so many alternatives out there that maintaining an exclusive wouldn't change the landscape.

Is there anything more you can tell us about your partnership with Gonzo?

One thing that we will be offering in conjunction with Gonzo that we put together is a non-DRM download system. The model is very interesting to the industry, because it will be different. Hopefully it will also be available to users on the same day it airs in Japan. That also competes with other alternatives out there.

Will you be the only site offering non-DRM downloads of these Gonzo shows?

I don't know, actually. But I can say the model we're trying is unique to us. Unfortunately I can't give you too many details about it yet.
