Should CR give us some input into what anime they obtain?

Right now CR seems to have gone straight from a community driven site to a bussiness making money and it couldn't have been done without all us users providing a large fanbase which has been the main attraction for companies wanting to make partnerships with CR.

The thing is though, right now everything seems to be completely out of our hands with even information about deals already happening being given out in interviews with other sites BEFORE it gets posted here.

Who else thinks we should get some sort of input over some descisions with the site (like what animes get picked up) via surveys or some other method?
Now CR has turned into a business, isn't it importent that the community that made this possible is reached out to and not taken for granted?

It's not entirely up to them, they get deals with specific companies, who wish to show or not show specific shows for other business related reasons.

I think that's a really good idea, since everyone says they are leaving if they gave us more of a choice then more people might stay

I'm surprised people aren't tired of making these types of threads. Because I am.

Well its an idea rather then a thread just talking about the change.

Well maybe they do research on what the fans want using the forums and such.

That would be nice, but the majority of the companies CR's working with probably wouldn't be very happy. They would probably prefer to have total control over what gets put up on CR. A survey would be a good idea, though. A nice tool for Shinji to work with. It could give him some insight as to what users do and don't want, so he could aim to negotiate in that direction. It seems like a bunch of people are fixing to pack up and get out as soon as January 8 rolls around, and new fans are going to be storming the place looking for HD Naruto and stuff like that, though, so the preferences might change with the fanbase. *shudders* CR ruled by Narutards....

I personally want a list of the animes that are so far going to be uploaded. More people might hang around if they knew what's airing, and I want to see which of my favorite shows or shows I've been wanting to see are being uploaded. The only things we've really heard about are what's already on the site and a couple of titles people will get excited about, like Skip Beat!, Shugo Chara!, and Vampire Knight. I know many of the deals aren't set in stone yet, but still....

Narutards.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

Well, I better get my ammo ready, as it is Narutard bashing time. "LAWL"

@ topic
You pretty much took the words out of my mouth with such an eloquent response.
Are you really 13? "LAWL"

Lol at least aiming wont be hard, just fire up the old flamethrower and you'll probably hit a bunch without even trying.

Also if surveys weren't possible even more information would be nice, it feels wrong to get the information about cr from other sites long before we get told in the news section.

Also +1 to people who want a list of those 150 anime here. :p

Mind if I join you?? I have some horse whips and a wooden sword that might some in handy. (^_^)

^_^ And thank you, yes I am. Again, it comes from constantly being buried in books.

I want to be surprised. There's a few shows that I want to be on CR but it probably won't happen until later in the future. Hint- Major, Library War, and Bartender . As long as there is a good mixture of anime, J/Kdrama, and music videos it's okay.

Actually, one of the main reasons I am staying on crunchyroll is to bash on the Narutards. "LAWL"

Well, you know that I am just joking about that 13 years old thing. "LAWL"

If someone actually catalogs this forum (which is a really high mountain to climb), one can see the modes and patterns of what crunchyroll Anime fans want. If you actually look at the forums within the last weeks, it seems that lots of people are really enthralled with the "Slice of Life" genre.

This makes me question, is Shinji going to put more current Animes or old school ones? A new series is more like a shot at the dark, and an old series seems to be just recycling. Well, let's just see with what approaches these companies and crunchyroll will take to please it's audience, the crunchyroll community.

Random thought:
It would be so nice if they put the second season of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya here.
Here's hoping.

No, because there is a lot of users on this site so that would take awhile and be a waste of time =_=
