Anime Membership - More details
Posted 12/23/08
What I would really like to know is the region availability. I've been watching Skip Beat until today when it suddenly became unavailable in my region. I suspect its going to be similar for Gintama and the rest too. I really don't want to become a member and then be told I can't watch anything anymore. Is there any chance that you can let us know BEFORE the early bird discount ends? Seems very unfair to me right now.

I'm really looking forward to the new changes. I won't be getting a paid membership (come January I will have a lot of school work, so I have the patience to wait a while for new episodes) but it will be exciting to see how this all works out. I hope that we will soon know the complete (or near-complete) list of anime that will remain on the site after the changes, because I'd like to have time to finish watching series that will be gone after the 8th, and I'm sure it is also very important to paying members to know if their favorite shows will stay.

I say let them leave. They can neither stop this revolution nor escape from it. Soon the leechers will have no choice but to either join the new world order or die.

I have enough of people who claims that it is ridiculous that CR charges money for anime, etc.

You DON'T need to pay, free anime will still be available on the site.

One thing that could upset allot of people is if this 150 or so series promise turns out to be mostly unpopular and older shows. Crunchy led the sales pitch with Naruto, Gintama etc. Soon we will see the real meat and potatoes!

Well duh of course the majority will probably be a lot of older and lesser known shows but with a 150 shows who really cares. There's bound to be some good stuff in there and I'm sure there will be a decent collection (I'm guessing around 15 to 20 to start with) of popular/new shows.

I second this. I can't watch Skip Beat anymore and that's the anime that I support. And I don't want Gintama to be unavailable, too.

Edit: Gintama is unavailable now too. I hope this is temporary till you launch the CR Anime Membership privileges this January.

Been following the past few post on anime membership and firstly i'm glad I can pay by snail mail once I get the money but I would like to know about the currency. Although you accept many different countries currency from your post, but do you base them on US Dollar and we have to convert into the amount which is equal to US$60 for a 12month membership? Is it confusing to understand what i'm trying to type cause i feel i might have mis-phrased my message wrongly.


lets say you want to get a one month membership; that's currently USD 6.95
and you want to pay for the membership...just with a different currency; lets say SGD, you will pay 10.0648 SGD

here is a converter(mentioned in the FAQ for snail mail): http://finance.yahoo.com/currency-converter

simple


thanks, just wanted to be sure of that as Shinji didnt mention it at all

but most of it will be only avaliable to people living in the US like a lot of the older shows in CR right now so what's the point of putting them on CR when only a handful of people, and not the majority of CR, can watch it. This will make crunchyroll less popular and other video sharing sites like youtube, yahoo, megavideo, veoh, and many more become more popular.

I totally agree with you. And if videos such as Skip Beat! first start becoming unavalible, there's always veoh and many other sharing sites. Youtube is slowly becoming better than crunchyroll as CR limits more and more anime to paid members and people living in the US. If more and more anime becomes like this, i'll rather quit crunchyroll and use veoh permanently and even create an account there.

Is Skip Beat and Gintama licensed in Philippines and Singapore for people to watch it on TV?

That is pretty money grubbing...


you say this but if you read my previous post it costs £20 for a dvd which is bout $30 and your complaining bout $2? if you support the franchise then thats a pretty small cost. plus you can still watch the hi-def streams.

true... if you look at veoh now, their videos seems to load faster. and their player is a lot better also compared back then. let's admit this, people go to crunchyroll because of the content. and if those shows will only be available, i guess people will start looking somewhere else. don't flame on this one. i'm not promoting veoh nor i am bashing crunchyroll. i just based this on what people (or I) would do if they are looking for a particular show.

happy holidays to everyone! ^^
