There is a few reasons why I prefer to watch anime "illegal"
* Most of the money goes to the company... not the creator! (in some cases, the company is the creator!)
* In my own opinion the dvd's are a rip-off, 4 episodes for 15-20 bucks!!! take a anime like naruto or Ruroni kenshin! that is a lot of money!
* Fan-sub are mostly better then the sub the company does (didn't think it made any difference until I bought the dvd of an anime I liked, HUGE difference!

and here is some points that takes away the point with Shinjis new adversetising points!
* If you know the site, you can download the latest naruto episode (raw) the very next day it was aired in japan!
* and if you wait a another day... you can get it subbed!
* licensing sure take time, he promised many new anime's instead of the old ones that was deleted.... I see naruto and some other few animes... thats it! less then 10 probably!
* and I don't even like Naruto (the anime, love the manga though)

many creators in the world would love to share their creations for free (not all though) but we live in the harsh world we do and we all need money, BUT (as I said before) most money we spend on anime and manga, goes mainly into the companies, publishers, second and third hand sellers!

Hmm...I would really like to support CR but how would I if it wouldn't even give what I want? ( I don't care about the anime!! Where are the dramas?! The Sentai?! The Toku?! ) Equivalent exchange, anyone? Seriously, this is very disappointing. I know its a fact that all of this is business. But! It is also a fact that CR is losing its members. I guess it can't be helped then. The supporters are asking us to leave then we do so. Staying here won't do us any good, not anymore that is.

He's a faggot for making people pay. Torrents are way better than this gay site.


Agreed...


You're a smart man for agreeing with me.


Yeah but torrents are virus/spywear packed. And are extremly unorganized and hard to use. They are annoying and filled with advertizments crunchyroll is way better. I'm pretty sure that shinji isn't doing this out of complete personal profit. I'm sure that he's most likely getting some money out of this but I think that it would probably be a lot easier for him to just make all the anime free. If you guys don't understand that then whatever. Think what you want. But the bottem line is this.

America and a lot of other really powerful countries are cracking down on internet copy right BIG time. And if crunchyroll keeps making anime free sure it would great for us for a little while. But most likely eventually crunchyroll would get shut down and we would all get stuck with some other crappy unreliable website. Trust me I've used other websites for watching anime and they all suck.

We should all just be happy that we can still watch the animes for free with just a small waiting fee. That's not really much. If you don't like it then get a membership or FIND ANOTHER WEBSITE and quit wining. Cause you still get the anime for free. You just have to wait a little longer.

I really did enjoy coming here and making friends and watching videos. But I can't afford to pay. I am living on a small disability check. So I guess the one tiny bit of enjoyment I was getting out of life is being taken away because I have no money to splurge on extras.

I think manc84 is right in saying the money will go to companies and not to creators, but we all know there is no way we can give money directly to creators (unless we know them personally). I'm not a specialist but I think the way it works is that companies make money so that they can share part of it with creators, and more importantly companies make money then feel like investing in more production in the future. For that, they hire creators. Without creators, they can't do anything, right? When you watch illegal fansub, then it's only the company who runs the site and that will never encourage anyone to produce animes. That's the difference. Capital can survive doing other stuff than producing animes, but creators cannot 'cause they will no longer be creators if they don't create!

It's been a month since I visited this site again. Nothing changed. no videos. no animes. more complaining members. well I give up on waiting Crunchyroll's "returning to life". Honestly, there's no site better than crunchyroll BEFORE... But that site will just be history... Good luck shinji! Keep up the money-making operations!I don't want to pay you to watch anime here. I'll buy and watch anime dvd's instead. hehe

beside, the profit the japanese companies make of the outside-japan-market, are probably not even 1/100-part of what they earn in japan!... if even a 1/1000 part!!!

and that without them losing viewers to the web!

nothing is free. people whom think there is no money involved in watching things like anime online are confused. sure there are ways to avoid spending money on either the business or customer scale of things, but money is always a factor. ever wonder why there is a need for ads on many websites? notice the ads on this website; not everyone using it has a paid subscription. if a customer is not spending a sufficient amount of their own money to maintain the services, then that individual must then make up the loss by receiving advertisements from other companies.

there are a few revenue models to choose from and crunchyroll.com has made it's choice this round. things can always change again, but funding will always be the hurdle to overcome.

i could go into more detail, but this post has gotten too long for my liking...
