Just to be technical, you're paying for the right to stream, not the right to download. It's the difference between subscribing to HBO vs. buying The Sopranos on DVD. I agree that direct downloads are much more convenient to deal with, but whats to prevent people from just turning around and bittorrenting them? I don't think that would make TV Tokyo, Gonzo, etc. very happy at all...


I could use a mediaPC or DVR to record off of HBO and watch in various formats as well. The majority of the videos on this site can already be downloaded, as they don't use whatever new flash trick Crunchyroll is using on their latest releases. I guess I'm just disappointed because this greatly impacts my ability to watch the show in an enjoyable manner. Realistically there isn't much difference between streaming and downloading at any rate, it's just a matter of what the computer does with the data after you're done pulling it. I'm not even interested in keeping it after I'm done watching, but hey, if I could buy the episodes for $1.99 each, I probably would.

You know as well as I it will only be a matter of days before someone rips the new content from here and puts it on bittorrent anyway.


True, true, and I believe the DVR stuff falls under fair use. Anyway, I'm not legal expert so I won't say anything more about that, but in my opinion the point is likely just to appease the publisher (who rightly wants to protect their content). I think Hulu also takes a lot of steps to protect the stuff on their site.

I understand the agreement but the 6 day wait is a bit much since you have to wait 6 days to watch a show that comes out 1 epi a week and many other sites deliver the subbed editions 2-4 days after its release in the raw.

Im not bashing CR, i love this site and its one of the best sites for anime streaming but does the wait have to be 6? why not 3 or 4?

I hope Lovely Complex will become one of the animes that get shown on this site.

Also, I know there's the Now Showing Box and Simulcast Box that show future release dates, but it'd be cool if there was a page where we could look and see when specific episodes are going to come out for shows in the near future (like more than just the shows that'll be coming out in the next couple of days). Like for Kaleido Star, cause that's a show where I guess it's taking them longer to sub cause the 1st season isn't up on the Now Showing box and episodes 1-4 were released a week ago.

I joined and paid because i wanted my Naruto episodes in good quallity and beeing provided as fast as possible. Fact is also that if I were an anime distributor I would like money for my services since they put their time and effort in what they're doing. To you who thinks Naruto or anime in general should be for free I'd suggest you should try to imagine yourselves into their positions. The anime bussiness is like like any other movie making bussiness (e.g. Hollywood) they want money for what they're doing and I think they deserve that aswell.
