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!!!

This has been common knowledge for 2 months now.

I agree, people do more than haunt this website everyday. In other words, people have lives. If you're living yours here then so be it, but don't think everyone does things the same way. There's no need to say things about others because they aren't doing things the same way you are, like checking up on cr all the time. Honestly why do you think there's war and racial discrimination?

why couldn't CR use a mixed approach? The companies that want could upload their HQ smexy vids and anime, and for those that don't give a shit or that don't wanna sub or w/e, just let the fansubbers take care of it. If the companies don't like it, they ask to have it removed, which is why alot of the good stuff is missing anyway. SADFACE

We'll just have to see... although it's shocking right now, wait till you take a peek at CR within a few months of stalking off and declaring that you'll never come back. You might be surprised at how efficiently it'll run.

Hmm I think at some point you ALL know that this was gonna happen, it went on for like 2 months before it did. Also I wrote up that statement because its really getting annoying with everyone saying "WTF!? CRUNCHYROLL REMOVED ALL OF ITS VIDEOS!? I'M OUTTA HERE!!" or something like that.
Not to mention all the flaming threads about it that gets locked up by the mods.
and I'am aware of people's lifestyles, we all have different lives.
I apologise if that "comment" I made was "offensive" to you all with "lives", I was just making a statement.
and also you don't really have to bring up the war and discrimination stuff since it has nothig related to this.

PS. btw, I don't play Crunchyland THAT much <_<

End of lecture.

It's to the point that I wish their was a popup when you tried to access cr that makes you read about the video takedowns.

I bet even then people would be asking 'where did they go?' on series walls. Sometimes I wonder just how retarded some of these people are in real life...
