Maybe because CR is actually geared towards anime unlike veoh or youtube. So it gathers more attention than the others. Also on top of the fact that everyone is more organized than said veoh or youtube. Rather than searching for videos via name, we can go directly to a folder that has episodes only pertaining to one show. Making anime on CR more accessible than the competitors. They're also not broken up into three or four segments like youtube/veoh either.

What I'm tired of seeing is everyone complaining about shinji ruining this place. Don't blame shinji. Shinji had nothing to do with this. If you want to fight this, start a petition and send it to the licensing companies. I don't know what that's going to do but it's a start.

It's not that shinji wants to take all the user-uploaded media down. It's because he has to, to protect himself from lawsuits. He could always fight the lawsuits but in the end, we'd be worse off if he did because this place probably wouldn't exist after that.

I actually want to congratulate shinji for doing something that hasn't been done. Licensed streaming anime. Unlike some punk kids on here, I'm staying and supporting what shinji is doing. Because shinji may be the only person whose internationalizing anime.

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?


Agreed brother.

I came here because I could catch Kamen Rider, Ultraman and other shows (GAKI NO TSUKAI RING A BELL SHINJI!)
Now it's just an ass-kissing corporate shill of site.

I find CR oppressive and ridiculous, first (when I noticed it) was the idiocy with the Kamen Rider shows......... THAT COMPANY ONLY HAS THE LICENSE FOR RYUUKI, SHINJI!
And now Gaki No Tsukai has been axed.

Someone forgot about his users in the race for the almighty corporate dollar and I quote:

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.


So does this mean that all the shows like Gaki No Tsukai will have official subs ?
I doubt it.

BAKA!

i don't even like Anime. and they took most of the Drama stuff out...

Good thing I just bought 7 pirated anime DVDs.
I can't afford to support CR by donating because I'm not working yet.
I'm still a high school student xD
I'll just save more money to buy more
Or just stream from other sites / download.

But I think other than that, Crunchyroll is still a good place.
I'd still visit this site for the forums and the interesting groups.

Hmm well it's definitely great back then,free sharing of anime,open to all regions etc.

But look,those werent...exactly legal.CR's just working with the distributors to supply us with anime.As they said in the New Year thread,they are trying to get rights in all regions for more anime and drama.At least's it's legit now and the creators are satisfied as well.More media will probably come in future.be patient and stop whining D:

O.o so they are going to remove drama and the music stuff as well. Hmm well that seems pointless because it is unlikely they are going to get anyone who distributes drama to agree to stream their stuff. The reason why this is working so well with the anime is most of those companies are hoping to use the cr uses as testing grounds for their releases in North America and Europe. Basically the entire cr user base has just been turned into a free marketing device. Oh wait no you guys who bought anime memberships are actually paying to become a corporate tool. Have fun with that.

Oh, and just to state this again for people who apparently don't know shinji does not equal one person. In fact I doubt the orginal person who made the account of shinji is still on this site.

On another side note this should be locked here in a few seconds if it follows the normal trend.

edit: Oh yeah I had forgot about the detective office drama thing they got from someone so I guess they will manage to get a few dramas.

hmmm... i hv 2 agree w/ HitsuToushi & revolutionofone...daijoubu... wt CR ws doing in d past aka user-uploading IS illegal... & companies have the right to license their vids.... but CR is progressing fast... be patient & b4 u know it, there'll b more animes/dramas/movies 2 watch than u cn imagine... Since shinji is teaming up w/ companies in Japan... all our favorite animes will b available exclusively 2 CR... daijoubu....

im sure the companies will allow their vids 2 b uploaded in CR... if not... then they might not b able 2 reach much of the international market... what shinji is doing @ d moment is legalising evrything 2 protect himself frm possible lawsuits... he's actually helping the anime industry reach world status... 4 people in Japan & other places where u cn buy DVDs of the animes... i dun think they'll allow it 2 b available in ur region, cos u cn watch on d TV etc.

besides... CR isn't only just bout animes... im sure most [if not all] of us hv made friends here...i really like CR... punks & other people who don't appreciate shinji's work cn quit CR... no problems... but i'll b staying put... i hv & i will support shinji & in his work...

No, they get in trouble like every other places that stream copyright materials whether they know it or not. However in the US user generated sites are usually protected by DMCA’s safe harbor provisions if they show proof that they did everything within thier resources to prevent upload, terminate, etc of the offending account. CR seem to be doing this when videos became licensed in the US by removing it. However CR probably doesn't have enough resources to afford getting in trouble since there are companies out there that will take you to court without warning and court fees can probably be enough to shut down CR at its current state for good regardless if they win or loose and as I been seeing on CR, everyone would be too poor to help CR out of the bind if they need it so if your still complaining there are other places you can find your videos.

It's not Shinji's fault, Crunchyroll would of gone down eventually due to legal issues. Shinji just took a different approach to keep it up. Sites like Veoh will eventually get their fill of legal issues, I believe they've already started removing some anime content. As for the anime been removed, Shinji have to do it or he'd probably get sued -.-. Well, look on the bright side, least now we can watch some anime legally, and the companies that request their anime removed will eventually say * hey look crunchyroll is pretty cool, here's a cupcake and some anime*.
