Looking back at 2008, Crunchyroll has come such a long way. When I started this website two years ago, my goal was to share anime and Asian videos with my friends and make them fans. I never thought it would grow to be one of the biggest Asian entertainment sites touching MILLIONS of ppl everyday (and that's all thanks to you guys!) I've met so many great ppl on CR and I bump into a lot of ppl that discovered anime through CR and that always motivates me to make CR better.

Going into 2009, CR is going through some more changes. I know that change can be little frustrating sometimes, but I promise that we're doing everything we can to make the site better. Sometimes it's not very obvious the reason behind some things, but there are good reasons that I'll try to share. Ever since I realized CR's potential, I wanted it to be a place where everyone benefited including fans and creators. But it's taken a lot of time and work to reach out to the publishers to show them what CR has to offer and I've always respected their work if they requested it be removed. I know this has been frustrating for some of you, but it's been necessary for CR to continue and to build stronger relationships with the publishers to release their work directly onto CR. We now have over 25 publisher partners putting content up and we'll have over 130 titles come January! =D

We've made a lot of progress working with the publishers with some great shows coming in January (like Naruto Shippuden!! and many more), but there's still more to do! And much of the user-uploaded fansubs have been holding us back because it doesn't have the creator's permission So for CR to really break through and stay around forever, we are going to have to stop user uploads and take down any unauthorized uploads. This means that only official publishers will be able to upload. But it also means that the videos will be uploaded very quickly, the video quality will be great, and the creators will make money so they can support themselves to make more new stuff. So your support of CR by joining the Anime Membership, you'll be helping the anime industry survive This way, we'll be able to get a lot more good shows on CR.

I know this is a big change, but I ask for your patience and faith in CR as I work to bring all the great shows here first! I truly believe this is the right thing to do so that eventually CR will be the only place you need to go to And you guys will all be part of the Crunchyroll revolution! I'll have a lot more announcements to make in the upcoming weeks (and btw, we're not ignoring the dramas either . But please check out the Anime Membership offering – this will give you earlier access and HD quality streams! I have a feeling that 2009 is going to be a great year and a great milestone for CR. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!




hey there, shinji. i'm sure your having a hard time with all these people against your choice. ummm, well, i'm against your choice too, but oh well is all i can say. if its a choice you absolutely had to make, i'd rather have some crunchyroll rather than none. i'm not too happy about the choice you made, but hey, dont keep your hopes so down! you've done a great job keeping the site up before, so i think you can keep doing it. like i said, i'm against the whole decision, but just keep doing your best! i know you'll try to make the best choices for us and the site. keep up the good work..(err haha. umm..its not good to us, but you still have a great site up and running..) and try to fix this situation up to the best of your abilities! good luck!
P.S. Remember: keep your hopes high!!

All of the posts before this one, ARE STUPID.

This website is going legit, Why? TO NOT GET SUED FOR MILLIONS OF DOLLARS.
So how do we pay for legit providers? PAYED UPGRADES.

It is that simple.. If you want Cr to still be around, then Shut up. If you hate CR, complain how you are poor and shit.

/rant


i totally agree with you! shinji couldnt help it, right? thats what i believe...
well, im sure shinji isnt liking this too much either, and is getting a lot of comments about what a horrible decision he made. but hey, people! its not his fault! at least SOME is better than NOTHING.

Yep, 50 pages of bad posts make me not really care if CR dies with this.

I think Shinji did a nice job of spinning what is actually going on (not that I really know, or have access to secret information). Some people seem to interpret what is going on as "bad men are trying to take away my entertainment" failing to realize the availability of something for free does not entitle you to it.

Wow. Major points. I think you made perfect sense. I suddenly feel enlightened. At first, I was hoping that Shinji's attempt to improve the site would, in time, bear fruit. But after reading your post, I suddenly feel that perhaps hoping is useless. Shinji was probably just sugarcoating, trying to make it look like he "was doing everything [he] can to make the site better". But if you think about it, what he's doing is just mostly for his own interest. I couldn't find any reasons to refute what you've said in your previous post because it all seemed so likely. What a waste. This website was one of the best anime sites I know and it could've been better. But right now, I think that's not the case anymore.

To sum up: You are a fucking cheap moron.
Goodbye,don't let the e-door hit your ass on the way out. Worthless scum.


Considering what I earn a month, I can probably tell you that you are the worthless one here. And btw, your IP is mine to know already and I sent it to the police for tracing so that they can find you. Having a dynamic IP won't save you. I filled a harassment complaint against you. You'll have to answer in court, who's the "worthless scum". You've messed with the wrong person.
You like to kiss ass, fine, but you're going down to blatant personal harassment. I've seen your posts here and all you do is do personal attacks on anyone who's leaving. Being mental much, or is it just in you to be an asshole?
I'm not paying to watch nothing (I live in EU) or to watch crap shows. Most of the anime I like isn't mainstream and Fist of the Northern Star has to be one of the biggest shit animes ever made. Add DBZ, Pokemon and other such shit that isn't worth of coming out of a donkey's ass.
I don't waste money on shit, and this site has just become a pile of shit.

I think its great to have the latest anime uploaded shortly after it airs but not at the expense of losing the older or less popular ones. The main reason I joined this site was to watch animes that would never be released in America due to a lack of popularity, funding or some other reason. There are very few places to watch anime in america (internet excluded) and the only ones that make it on tv are shows that a focus group thought was good, and those are edited to better fit Americas "morals". Dont get me wrong, I love Naruto and Bleach and a number of other animes that aired here but I have to say finding anime that suits my taste leaves me with long dryspells of nothing to watch. And if nothing else couldnt we have kept the user uploads until they had the replacements ready? But I guess I'll have to go back to youtube and other iligitamate sites just to finish the shows I started here.

I will say that the content quality I have seen thus far is no where near
what I could get on a site such as Hulu.com. The Shippuden subs here
are poorly synched, and rampant with Engrish. You had better do better
than this rocky start Shinji, before you get your wealth "redistributed".
This site won't last with this quality level, or most of those 4.6 million
unique visitors won't bother coming back.

You are now competing as a business, with inferior products against
legal and illegal groups. If you do not vastly improve the product quality
and user experience you will not survive.
