Things have been pretty hectic here ever since we started changing the site on Jan 1st, 2009. The CR team and I have been really busy this past week trying to make this transition as smooth as possible. Even though we're swamped with work, we're all super excited about the changes because they'll let us get more great anime quickly and in high quality! Thanks for all the words of encouragement and support, which keep us motivated and further validate that this is a huge step in the right direction. A lot of you clearly think we are providing changes that will benefit the entire anime community in the long run, and we're excited about that!

Over the past week, we've been fixing the issues some people have experienced with video playback, especially Anime Members. This was our number one priority. The blank white or black video player issue should be fixed now. The "Connection closed" error messages seen by southeastern US and western Europe viewers should be fixed, too. We're currently deploying a solution for the intermittent buffering issues experienced even by people who have 6+ mbps bandwidth. For those of you confused on why videos used to work but not anymore - we've been slowly converting videos over to a new streaming method and service provider, so some of the unforeseen hiccups were introduced due to this transition. We will also switch back to the old streaming system for LQ/HQ if these issues aren't resolved soon. The bug reports really help a lot, thanks for the feedback! =D

There were some other changes too - we fixed issues where the video controls didn't fade away in full screen mode; the Anime, Drama, and Music homepages were slightly redesigned; I got rid of the My Home page because it wasn't that useful and would sometimes slow down the website (btw if you're looking for your View History, you can find it in the My Manager page); some of the subtitle editor stuff has been disabled for now, since we need to work with our partners to sort out the permissions for user-submitted subtitles. Over the next couple weeks, I'll be simplifying the site even more and cleaning it up so it's easier to use, easier to find stuff to watch, and looks more professional ;P

To all the Anime Members, thanks for your support, patience, and understanding. Your support for the Anime creators helps tremendously! Hopefully you guys read the private message I sent out a few days ago, outlining some of the issues with the new streaming method and the ways we are addressing them. We've listened to your feedback for our High Definition videos - we have been and continue to work with our partners to provide better quality videos and subtitle translations.

To all the people who are concerned about region-blocking issues, I'm really sorry! We are constantly asking for permission to show stuff in more and more countries, so please be patient! There were some last-minute updates for France, Belgium, and Switzerland region-blocks for Naruto - we got permission to show it for Anime Members (but not for regular users) now! The website will be updated in a few hours to reflect this. We were also able to get more regions for Dear Boys, among others! Rights clearance is complicated and just takes time.

As a community of fans, what we do makes a big difference. To those that are joining with us to help the industry be sustainable, thank you. And we'll keep working hard to bring you the best new shows direct from Asia ;P

P.S. Naruto Shippuden 92 will be out in a few hours! =D Also Tower of Druaga Season 2 Ep 2 on Thursday and Linebarrels 15 Friday! I should start watching Gintama, too - it looks pretty entertaining.

Gambatte kudasai. Just stay transparent is one of the few things I ask.

I quietly recommend: Please provide the acquisitions lineup as a list, like the index (with different colors for country-restricted titles).

Also, that deal recently done for Haruhi MADs in Japan, can't that be done for Crunchy, too? Just asking.

Shinji is also taking new dramas in CR. They are so freshly new, you have to be a "member" to watch it.
But CR is more like an anime site now. =_=
