i really dont see this as a bad thing. we gonna get anime same day as aired in japan and subbed to boot. HD quality aswell. sure when this starts in january there might not be many animes but it will build up to be great as shinji makes more deals with studios and such. they say rome wasnt built in a day. same goes for crunchy. it will start small and be built into a megadome of anime, manga, dramas and what not.if u dont like it then get the F**k out. shinji doesnt need to have little babies crying about crap to him. eventually crunchyroll would have become so big that big producers would have had it shut down. what would u have done if that happened.atleast shinji made the choice to keep crunchy up. instead of jus shuttin it down like most other ppl mite do. i dont know what u guys will do but im giving shinji my full support with this.

Honestly speaking, leaving CR or not leaving won't do any differences even if you have to pay up for animes although I believe that the no. of anime viewers will gradually decrease in the site cus of the payment burden. Lots of animes these days can be viewed in numerous streaming sites or anime fanblogs/fansites and yea, users of cr have already done that so, it's not a new thing. But, let's look back at how the payment method for more CR points & HQ + other features for CR, a year or 2 ago, didn't really seem to work out since majority of the people didn't care for the cr points or the HQ feature available. Thus, the result at present is, cr now has made watching videos at HQ & fullscreened available without charging. Don't know why they charged in the beggining when they can provide for free later on. Anyhow, the charging case i mentioned may be different as compared to the present situation but I mentioned it anyway since both involves viewers paying/not paying issue here.

Going back to the topic, earlier I stated something regarding decrease in anime viewers. Well, it's obvious that majority of the CR users are here more for free animes than for dramas,chatting or stuffs like profile/avatar design(!) etc...So, free anime being the sole purpose here, if CR were to charge its anime viewers for every anime(!) then no doubt, there'll definately be downfall in the no. viewers and although viewers may not leave CR completely for one or the other reasons, there's still a prediction of increase in the users' visitation periods which I don't think is a happy result. I wouldn't really say CR has the monopoly advantage cus although CR has different and better layouts than the other sites, the service provided are more or less similar, thus, the situation here seems rather monopolistic than of monopoly. So, technically speaking, in monopolistic situation, the market structure says rise in price leads to decrease in demand. Hence, here as a whole meaning decrease in viewers.

So, these charging thing for CR seems a bit disadvantageous as viewers start lining up for animes in other sites and although, they may not leave CR completely (something cr should be proud of) but one thing is for sure that the massive amount of anime viewers, cr has accumulated for many past years, will be decreasing their cr visitation as majority don't agree with the payment requirements (bad news for cr if viewed in long term prespective since there'll be lesser viewers day by day, goodwill depreciation and reduction in sponsorship!).

Anyways, despite my 3 long paragraphs of dissapointments directed toward CR, I won't be leaving CR. Well I've been here for nearly 2 years afterall although I worry for my visitation period to cr.

Hmm... it's funny how people can afford for their pc/laptop to have internet access but its just too damn much for an anime membership account Unless they're already bumming off of someone else's internet. Don't do the surveys if you don't want spam mail or trouble, simple as. Even shinji said that although it may not be the best option, he would do his best to create ways in which people can gain memberships other ways.



i agree n besides Shinji n his crew r working really hard to make CR better....an as for all those who wanna leave...i wonder where in the f*** internet r gonna find not only the best aquality in anime but also a a place where the creators really care....so yeah

Guys this is a really good site with a huge library of anime.

sky7anime.net
(with no www. in the beginning)

The quality is better than CR but the only annoying thing is each video is only about 10 minutes so u have to keep clicking next. I go to that site for Naruto and all the ones that are licensed here. You also have to register to watch but it's completely free and takes 2 seconds.

Enjoy!

Dude, I understand where Shinji's coming from but man, it still pisses me off. As for me, I'll find other sites, no problem. Also, torenting doesn't hurt ;]

I'm going on an anime binge now ;o

Well... if forums are free then i might keep this account for forums.... but it since i don't forum much about the shows, its basically like leaving... i mean right now the price is pretty good for the membership and i would have ordered it, if i knew for sure that there will be around 100+ - 200+ anime... but since all I've heard about is 2-4 anime and animes that i dont even watch why bother....

I'll stick to waiting for the next episodes and watch them else where... well this really sucks, but stuff usually starts out great Online and ends up becoming all about money....

I say this from personal experience since i play MMO's and i know lots of them start thinking that the Item Mall is more important then what the players what.... I think that can apply to this situation somewhat....

Well, I'll say this now, because i might not be able to later....

It's been great you guys! Having to hear your thoughts on certain episode and series, comparing and finding out that there are many that think like i do or have similar thought on a subject.. also being able to talk about anime with you guys have been fun ahaha... i guess this is Sayonara to some unless we meet at other forums/sites ^^ oh well hehe

so wut if its not fansubbed? the animes still gonna be subbed, and we only hav to pay if we want to. otherwise we can still watch anime free. those who r leavin CR guess i understand but its not really logical..no offence ofcourse
