What some here fail to get is, if CR didn't do this, it would have died out at one point anyway. CR would have been legally responsible for illegal distribution of anime. The companies creating these contents, like the anime studios could have filed a law suit against CR or sent the FBI after them, heck even get the FBI to get all your IP addresses and legally prosecute offenders.

CR made the right choice for its future and now more and more companies will try to join Gonzo, TV Tokyo, Viz, ADV, Media Blasters to try to curb the expansion of fansubs.

This is good news for everyone. The Japanese companies are starting to wake up to try to at least make money with their works through memberships and ad revenue, instead of getting no money from fansubs.


CR is not illegally distributing animes, yet. CR removes Licensed titles per request so it wouldn't get sued. But I agree with you that Shinji made a good decision, hopefully.

Think about it people. This is just a step to a long walk. After this Collaboration with Companies more and more animes would be available though it would take some time.


but think about it this is exactly the opposite of what the anime companies want. they want you to buy the dvd's not watch them on some site where people put out their work and money for free. either they'll make us pay or shinji or whoever. there will definitely be some down part in all of this for all of the cr users this is a step back for everyone what we were doing was somewhat illegal but shinji followed their rules i was glad with what we had then but w/e i geuss money just got more important or something

Shinji will use the donations. This is just us doing legal stuff to have privileges of watching anime.

I wonder if that's true.


Licensed Titles are not streamed on CR. Fansubs are not illegal.

No, he used the donations already. The partnership is for helping keeping up the site. And people leaving CR is just an assumption. Besides it was mentioned that CR will no longer be accepting fansub, we don't know for sure that CR will remove fansubs that are already uploaded.

And that was one of the things that I was inquiring about.

Everyone is really freaking out over some bad stuff right now, I guess it's to be expected with such a youthful community. I like the idea of where things are going with the Anime Studios, Tv Stations, American License distributors getting involved actively like this. It shows that the companies that bring us our love are trying to take a more forward step in getting involved. I hope that positive results come from it. Good results for them = Good animes/dramas for us.


The only thing we should be concerned about is the current planned details. It's really annoying to be left in the dark, as if you have am inquiring mind like mine, you just have to know all juicy tidbits !

Only new piece of info that I know of, is that when I was reading the updates on that ANN article, it had mentioned a couple new companies that are seemingly going to be involved that I haven't seen around here yet, Shueisha publishing ( of Weekly Shounen Jump fame) and Studio Pierrot ( GTO, YuYuHakusho, Naruto, Bleach). Needless to say, 2 VERY big names in the anime/manga industry.

I just hope that it's not just anime that is going to be coming in, as I really enjoy the other sections, such as Music, a lot. Ok, just the music section. =D
