In my opinion Crunchyroll was better when it was young, being free of licenses and having anyone upload anything.
I mean, seriously, Shinji just BLEW it when he deleted all user-uploaded crap.
We put up with enough of that regional bullshit, now this?
Crunchyroll turned into shit so fast, and because of what? Well, companies, silly.
Look at what these companies have done, all this monopoly, control game, bullshit.

I remember when Crunchyroll was a fun and cozy place, back in 2006, where you could watch anime for free without worrying about shit like this happening. Now this feels like YouTube, controlled videos, uploads, shit like that.
This site has just lost all of it's value.
I may not be the most active member, or the guy with 99999 cr points, but I've been around here long enough to be a witness of this atrocious transformation.

I'm not going to blame companies, but on the other hand, how could Shinji let this happen?
This is no longer the Crunchyroll I loved.

That said, Debate. Do you agree or disagree? Was crunchyroll better? Why or why not?

hmm i agree i really loved crunchyroll now it's going to take a long time to get back on the right track if it EVER does. good thing there are a bunch of other sites but it's more of a hassle -_-. i dont get why they had to delete the music and stuff too, can someone explain... (just opinions not meant to start a fight)

btw someone showed me this site and it confused me, so is crunchyroll a company in san fran? 0_o

xD I meant companies like Gonzo and shit.
I love thier anime but they're trying to control CR. They never belonged on CR in the first place.
This site was meant to share anime and sstuff for free, not for companies to come rampaging in here and take control of what we upload/watch.
This site was supposed to be like Veoh or whatever, just tailored to anime and dramas, and with a forum, etc.

Theres alot of points you've made.

Agreed, obviously crunchyroll was better before where everything can be viewed.
Disagree, it is not bullshit that companies restrict their video from being viewed by people without liscense.
Agree, crunchyroll lost its value.

Shinji let this happen otherwise he could be into legal issues.

Please explain how Veoh has permission to stream those companies videos then, and why we're allowed to sub them and download them.
And please don't go tell me that Veoh isn't allowed or else they'd get into legal issues, cause they haven't done SHIT to prevent streaming of copyrighted shit, and they're doing just fine, just as they have been for the past however many years that they have been around.

It's just frustrating seeing my favorite site turn into something like this...

Australia gets hit pretty hard on this one, we don't have access to a lot of the anime-membership content.

We get everything here in Canada, but I'm just trying to stand up a little for people like you in Aussie.
And because I don't like these changes in general.
Anyways I'm going to bed now. So see y'all tomorrow.

Does Veoh have exclusive rights to stream everything and anything?
Why is CR the only one with restrictions like this? Not counting youtube
