This would have been a lot simpler and cleaner if Shinji sent a mass PM to everyone about this.
Now we simply have a lot of people (who never bother visiting the forums, and there are a lot of them) acting like their heads were cut off, cluttering walls with crap like "WTf, werd it go?"

It's bad for business, especially with a lot of the people leaving elsewhere.

Fansubs are illegal, user uploads of anime/manga/music/drama is illegal.

Crunchyroll wants to be legal, we want the anime publishers to love us rather than sue us. Therefore, we have removed all illegal content.

Now we are working hard to get anime publishers to give us the okay to put their shows on the site, so they are all gone now... But chances are good that most will be back in the future.

Hope that was simple enough...

i can bet you anything that the chances are pretty slim that most will not be back in the future.

i can see why cr is going down this route but it just frustrating

its not that simple. all anime companies want to get rid of fan subs so the only way to do so is to make a monopoly of anime which is what is more or less happening to cr

I didn't find out until the day they took them all down. Yikes. I always that the "Crunchyroll Revolution stuff" was either just junk forwards or conspiracy theory people. Should have heeded their warnings.

They don't hate fan subs. If it were not for fan subs MANY great anime would never have made it out of Japan. They watch the traffic on fansubs and use that to help decide if they want to spend the time and resources to bring their anime stateside. We are even working with some anime publishers who have agreed to use fansubs for their official subs as it is much cheaper for a small shop. So no they don't 'hate' fansubs, what they hate is the people in Japan who illegally record their shows and put RAW's on torrent sites.

But without the RAW's their would be no fansubs so it is a grey area in the rules that must be unofficially accepted by anime production company's.

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.


why have you got quotation marks above comment and offensive?

Mod CV: Please do not throw insults about, keep all comments calm and respectful.

CR is not a sell out.
They're trying to be legit here which is pretty admirable.
But yea, I'm getting pretty sick of the
"AHH AHH THE VIDEOS ARE GONE! WHY??!" or "I hate this site. blah, blah, blah."

and with what shinji has gotten done so far
he can probably pull this off
