CR's a really really interesting place! I met bunches of friends from all over the world! & w/ d current updates happening in CR, I'll say that CR's going to be even more awesome! Everyone should feel supportive 2! Besides, CR will b d only legal website uploading vids...


It's not a bad deal for both parties (or three parties) anyway. By making this move, it shows that these anime companies are now willing to let people outside Japan watch their shows legally, instead of suing them off for downloading when the episode won't reach the shelves anytime soon. These companies are then able to earn much more because their market is now not restricted solely to Japan - they are now serving the international market. The viewers are also able to contribute to the industry, thus eliminating that little "guilt" of leeching off inside them. Shinji, the one who benefits the most from all this, will earn some money out from all this just because the site is made popular and well-known, all thanks to the users and their uploads. Now that the sole essence of that made this site popular is removed in the name of "copyright", it is really looking bad for this site because if this site isn't well-known to start with, which company will co-operate with him? This act of removing all user-uploaded content is effectively spitting at the uploaders faces and dismissing their efforts that made the site popular; which is an incentive for the companies to use this site as a medium for their sales in the first place.

But from the way it's going, Shinji is going to be very rich soon, and I mean he will be a billionaire soon. When this site is going be popular enough, being the "only" place to get legal content, some companies like google or some big internet companies will come in and buy this site like google (or was it yahoo?) brought youtube with some 9 digit sum. When that comes, maybe we will see a video uploaded on crunchyroll with shinji trying to hide his billionaire smile like the video uploaded by the founders of youtube when it's brought over.

Is Shinji going be a sell out and becoming insanely rich by selling the popularity that the community, not him, built up with their time uploading content and attracting traffic? Well, only time will tell. But looking at this, Shinji eliminated the sole pillar that made crunchyroll what it is today, surely he can do that too.

With all that said, I hope the plan will be a success, so to provide the other anime or entertainment companies for that matter an alternative, yet effective business model rather to their current one.


This ws said by gohydj.... I very much agree 2 this! What did u think???

I don`t understand 100% Japanese. So the videos here are like a guide, plus an excuse to watch things.
