I've been a member of Crunchyroll for a while now and I've witnessed this site changing from a free anime streaming site to a point where they had to restrict everything because of copyright infringement. Understandable of course, don't get me wrong.. But what ticked me off is the following.

When you're reading this thread I bet you have probably noticed the "Get a 2 Week Anime Membership Free Trial!" on top of the page which as stated offers you a free of charge Anime. All you do is give them your Credit Card number and yes, they take 0$ from your bank account as promised. So I took it in hopes I'd enjoy it and consider subscribing for more. Unfortunately, most Animes I wanted to view HD were not available in my country so I gave up and just let the rest of the 2 weeks go by unused. What I wasn't aware of was after these 2 weeks, apparantly you have agreed to sign up for the membership for an additonal 7 bucks a month. I was furious and of course canceled the subscription but I was mostly disappointed I fallen for something like this in the hands of CR. I know most of you would've probably read it in the 'fine prints' but I've known this site for a while and if there's one thing I know is that Shinji does care about it's guest so this was like a stab to the heart for me.

I hope this warned some of you which I'm probably sure you already knew but maybe someone out there like me who blindly trusting is like I am. It's only 7 bucks but that 7 bucks damaged my love for this site. Thanks for nothing.


A side note about me (because some of you are convinced they know me better then I know myself): The only reason I was not suspicious giving them my Credit Card is because I thought this was implented to avoid abuse. I simply did not expect CR to start charging you afterwards. I can not understand why we just can't get a notification saying if we want to subscribe or not. Maybe a little bonus if you do would totally be in CR spirit.

Listen up.
Ever sign up for shit on the internet?
If they intend on giving it to you for free, why would they want your credit card?
You brought it on your fucking self.

Nice rant. You've known CR for a while yet you don't know the basics. Reading Skills are needed IRL as well as in the interwebz. You were stupid enough to fall for it so you may only blame yourself and be disappointed in yourself. You don't need to warn us, kind sir. Stop whining, faggot.

Hehe, most people are incapable of figuring that out on their own unless of course they learn it the hard way first.

While I understand your sentiments, you should really look into things involving your credit card number a little more closely. There is a whole thread made by shinji in which he clearly states and advises people to cancel the trial before it actually ends to prevent any monetary charges on your credit card.

http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-476881/anime-membership-2-week-free-trial-now-available/

Anyhow, this is a personal thread..

I appreciate that but my point is that it shouldn't get to that point where it actually bills you. He could give everyone a note asking if you would like to continue this subscribtion like any honest organisation would.. He didn't so as far as I'm concerned I lost my trust in him

You screwed yourself over by not reading up on it and thus learning to cancel the subscription before charger incur. It's your own fault, get over it.
