As the situation for this moment is:

Week 1
This week, ep 64 will be aired
-suspeedia stopped
-Chibi is stalling

Week 2
No ep will be aired, because other ppl want also a vacation
-(8 jan) CR subbers will start subbing for money in extremely HQ, with awesome trans. 1 hour after the ep aired

Week 3
Ep 65 (no title yet) will be aired
the LQ of the CR subbers will be free, 1 week after it aired
Kids with nice/rich parents will get the HQ

Facts:
1. If don’t watch RAW’s , your 3 weeks without SC
2. At Mangafox.com, they got new manga-translators, with an awesome speed, starting from vol. 7
3. At CR is gonna be a huge overload of spoilers, so watch out!

I hope this gonna clear this up a bit, and makes you think about the situation that is creating here.

THIS REALLY SUCKS!
(Btw, I hope that this topic gets stickied, because it i important for those who can't get the membership. It may be subbed by Hatsuyuki fansubs, but it is not certain yet.)
And yes, I mispelled the title. I am sorry.
ALSO
If we don't have the membership, we have to wait a week AFTER it airs to watch subbed from CR. By then the new one would come out!! I bet you that 98% of CR users will leave. ALSO be aware to STAY AWAY from the wall. You will DEFINITELY be spoiled by people who can't shut up.


I have a feeling that "Shinji," or the 3-6 people that run CR under the name Shinji, are making this extreme change so they can eventually sell the site. The owners of CR were offered a multi-million dollar deal to sell the site once before but the company that offered the deal ultimately backed out because they didn't want to hassle with the pirated aspect of CR. By going "legit" CR will be more desirable to companies that are looking to buy the site. It seems to me that this move is based on greed and CR is turning it's back on the users that made this site what it is today. Those users that uploaded subbed content on this site helped CR grow and become a popular site all over the world. The owners of CR are thanking them by spitting in their face and laughing all the way to the bank. Someone else mentioned that the younger viewers don't really realize what is happening to the site and when they do they will eventually stop visiting the site and I agree.

Words can't describe how disappointed l am in CR because of this extremely drastic move they're making but I'm grateful for what CR used to be. Thank you "Shinji" for the good old times because of you I was able to easily watch my favorite dramas and movies (I rarely watched anime here) but I guess that's a thing of the past now.

P.S. The only way my disappointment would turn to joy is if CR scored deals with the major (not third rate) Asian movie and TV companies and they agreed to show their dramas and movies on this site but only time will tell.
By Blumpy in this topic: http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-420985/The-Crunchyroll-Revolution.html?pg=12#20607261

I kinda agree with it. Especially about a poll I saw one day about "How old are you guys" and I mostly saw "12 and under" voters. So, my guess is about 50% of users are young and can't pay?

I certantly hope so. But, this is really bad. It's after Christmas, when most kids won't get stuff after it. I guess Shinji's assuming everyone got Christmas money.

It so does suck! >:-( Maybe Shinji thinks everyone got Christmas money??
Anyway, I agree. Fansubs are quicker. Why pay to watch anime? That's money to use for clothes and stuff!(unless ppl are rich, parents are nice, or are spoiled kids)

You guys think Shinji is being cheap? Look at what Shinji wrote in this link
http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-420985/The-Crunchyroll-Revolution.html

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!!!

But i still don't have money to waste. As much as I support Shugo Chara, as it being my favorite series in the world, I can spend my money on manga, clothes, food, and trips to see my family during summer.

Look, if you would have these 2 options, which one would you choose?
1. Allow user-uploaded videos which will kill CR
2. Having the patience to wait for videos for 1 week so that CR doesn't die

I agree.. Not everyone can afford the anime membership. I rather watch the raw than to wait for the subs. If its 3 or 4 days i'll accept. But one week.. -.- But never mind, i will wait. >_<
