How is shinji doing this though? It doesn't make sense that he's paying 20,000 dollars a month. University costs 20,000 dollars a year.. so how is he affording this? He's seriosuly paying for this from his own pocket?????


That's why he had ads, the adbrite player, and supporters. Beyond that, he pays for most of it out his own pocket. Probably from jobs and all that other stuff.

The adbrite player would have helped a lot, but all you people did was complain and he probably felt bad. That's the only thing that pisses me off. Shinji's too nice to everyone.

Uuugh. No way in hell can I convince my parents to pay for anime online. The only reason they put up with my watching it is because it's free... -sighs-

If we just got rid of the AMVs it would cut down on the bandwidth a ton, you know... It's not like they can't be on youtube or anything. Or even the video game section. Does anyone actually watch those things?


no. I think it should just be anime and dramas, the videos and games section is a little pointless... you can just find those on youtube, besides, no one is going to waste their limited "10 movies per day" on something like a quick AMV they can also find on youtube

How does youtube do it...? Isn't youtube completely free?



Youtube does provide a free service. But it is owned by google, so there's no problem there in regards of how the site is being maintained. Google, enough said.

Shinji is an unbelieveibally nice person. he should put up as many ads as possible then!!! I don't mind them ^^ hell I'm watching anime for free there, I would be really selfish of me to complain about ads xD

^ Lol. Too much ads on the site would make it seem too crowded. But yeah, I agree the ads are just fine. I'm just surprised to how much Shinji is putting up with just to maintain this site. He is a college student. Shinji, you are definitely way too nice.

If Shinji strikes a deal with Google (unlikely), there will be many changes around this site. First, Shinji will probably have to hand control over, and it just wouldn't be the same. The best solution for this is to just not complain to the limits we have since it is FREE.

Does anyone know by chance how the bandwith system is going to work? How many megabytes does one get per day?

Yeah, the adbrite player was actually a nice idea. But how would you feel if people complained a lot? There shouldn't be any complaints about something free.

^^ Nope because Google would just buy crunchyroll from shinji and then remove most of the anime anyway because of licenses and other reasons.


oh no =( I see....
I think it's hard for shinji right now, but I believe that soon Crunchyroll will be just as popular as youtube!!! =D I totally have faith in this site ;)

bandwidth is expensive, so it makes sense. It doesn't cost that much to be a supporter....
