I know what I'll do. Get somebody to start a website. What about you? You know what I'm talking about....the demise of fansub on CR. What do you think will happen to the drama, music, movies?

A word of advice for you guys who have worked tears, sweat and blood. Get your fansubs that you put on this website on videos and run...run to the nearest fansub group and get them to encode it so it won't be lost forever.

If you dont know what I'm talking about read this:

"TV Tokyo announced through a press release today that they have partnered with Crunchyroll to broadcast 5 shows online worldwide, 1 hour after they air on TV in Japan. Starting Jan 8th, Crunchyroll will stream the latest episodes of Naruto Shippuden and Gintama, with 3 other works yet to be named, subtitled into English. The streaming will be available to anyone around the world (except within Japan) for a monthly subscription fee, and then one week later they will be made available through free, ad supported streaming.
At the same time, Crunchyroll has agreed to remove all user-uploaded content on the site and only stream video which they have explicit distribution contracts with the content providers for. Currently Crunchyroll has deals with Toei Animation, Gonzo (which was revealed to have a 20% stake in Crunchyroll in recent financial reports), and a few other smaller content providers.
Also announced today, Viz Media will make these episodes of Naruto Shippuden available on their own website (as well as Hulu and Joost) the same time that Crunchyroll releases the episodes for free streaming, one week after airing. Viz will also make the already aired episodes of Shippuden available, eight per week, until every episode that has been aired in Japan is completely available for streaming from their site. Dubbing for this Naruto season has already been started, however the future of the show’s broadcast on Cartoon Network is somewhat in doubt since the cancellation of Toonami.

This announcement of Crunchyroll’s intent to completely remove all user uploaded content from their website, of which almost all is fansubbed anime, has been met with shock and surprise by many of Crunchyroll’s users. It remains to be seen whether Crunchyroll can maintain its userbase when it no longer offers a huge library of fansubbed anime for streaming, and whether it can turn a monthly subscription model, plus ad supported streaming one week after airing, into a viable business plan. This move was not unexpected however, since most content providers in Japan are extremely wary of dealing with a company whose business model is founded on the illegal distribution of copyrighted video files." ~ Source Animenews.biz

Well... Err... There could be many positive and negative results. I just hope that the benefits overpower the bad things.

<< However, I hope they don't make the monthly subscription higher than what it is now. I am content with it and is planning to subscribe forever if the prices won't change. LOL.

It is your responsibility to read the whole thing before replying. If you do not or you can't, you're simply implying that you are an idiot.

Considering that it is, I can say whatever I want. Even so, is it not true? If you state "Oh, I wont read this very long blah blah blah" <People will simply concur that you're an idiot. If you don't want that. Then don't act like one.

Kyoukoujin: Is it true that the dramas in CR are going to be taken out in 2009?

Basoukazuma: Concrete details on that are not available yet but many most likely will.
