I have to agree with the age blocking and otherwise warnings that need to go up. I have to say that stumbling across the first episode of Charger Girl was definitely interesting. It's not that I hate shows with hentai themes but some warning would have been nice. I am enjoying kanamemo and Yokuwakarau Gendai Mahou but, again, it would have been nice to know before I started them that they were yuri themed.

But I have to question Crunchyroll putting up these shows at all. I have seen what the majority of your clientele is here and they are not over 18. I appreciate the new anime, of course, and the diversity as well. But some sort of age blocking should be happening. I don't know how dirty Yokuwakaru Gendai Mahou gets yet, but Charger Girl - definitely shouldn't be showing that to anyone underage even if this is the censored version on CR.

And I agree with the person who said that warning us almost half of a week after the first simulcast does NOT count as a warning at all. I've already seen it and I know I don't watch this site as much as some others do.

Please keep up the good work with getting us new anime to watch, even if it is ones I will not be watching. But also, please post on the actual anime pages some sort of warning or rating system unless you plan to pin this thread for anyone who comes here to check out anime anytime while you have these shows up. Because it will get buried and you will not be properly warning those people either. And that's a problem.
^ This. There should be some kind of rating on here. At least for now only Anime premium
members should be able to watch these kind of shows. That would keep alot of kids from being able to watch it.

While I agree that a rating system would be a good idea, I disagree that any anime here would be blocked to pay only just because you dont like its content.

Yeah, they should block it to age group - that way at least the kids will have to lie if they want at it. (You know they will, I did when I was underage...) But at least that would take any liability off of CR. I cannot believe they haven't already thought of this. I am most specifically speaking about Charger Girl right now, which is still pretty graphic for all that it's been edited for CR. I don't see why you'd have to age block yuri stuff, but I'd still like a warning for that one.

Tell you the truth, I haven't watched that one.. and never intend to. Lol I knew how bad it was from the promo video I saw at a fansub site. Not my cup of tea, to say the least.

But I love Aoi Hana, and cant wait till Sasameki Koto is released.. Love that Manga! I hope CR picks it up too!

Kanamemo's fanservice centers around the sexualization and molestation of the 13-year-old main character by a 20+ year old PLOT-PROFESSED pedophile, with the occasional molestation of a 7-or-so-year-old grade schooler thrown in for extra pedo/loli appeal. When done in a so-called "light-hearted" comedic setting, that can be justifiably termed, "pedophiliac shenanigans".
-The fact that it seems you've watched the show and failed to understand the plot to such pitiful degree, is your problem.... not mine.
-The broadcasters of the show, themselves, classify it as a loli (aka animated pedophilia) anime.
-Anyone, who can watch one episode of this series and refuse to acknowledge the raging lesbian hormones, should be informed that they are also refusing to acknowledge the existence of one of this show's most central comedic themes.... the raging lesbian hormones. :facepalm:

Charger Girl is filth, incarnate. Explaining that to someone, who's already managed to be ignorant of that fact, is a waste of my time.

Aoi Hana starts off with one of the main characters becoming emotionally depressed to the point of tears, all because she has an INCESTUAL LESBIAN LUST for her cousin whom she's just became separated from, just as she finds out her cousin's getting married (to a man). I highly doubt that the subject of incest doesn't fall under TABOO SEX wherever you, or anyone reading this, comes from.
-Additionally, if "RAGING LESBIAN HORMONES" doesn't justifiably describe a situation where a girl is so attracted to a woman that she doesn't much care that the woman is a close blood relative, then that term can't justifiably be used to describe any type of other situation, ever. And, that's just ridiculous.


You know Kanememo is only rated PG-13 right? futhurmore I take it you haven't watched many school aged based anime before? because there is always one character that loves grabbing breasts in there. It's one of the most common anime traits around.

Charger Girl is censored and you hardly see anything compared the uncensored version, but should be restricted to 16+

Aoi Hana correct me if I'm wrong but I believe you allowed to marry your cousins in Japan so very it's not incest. remember this shows are made for a Japanese audience. Plus it's pretty tame thus far.

You choose weather to watch it or not. Try doing a little research first you must have heard of ANIMDB or ANN as I asume you a anime member/fan.

I should rephrase what I said earlier I meant since the most people that have Premium memberships are older then 18 they could lock down the offending anime ( Charger girl) as a quick fix. The reason for that is because I'm sure it will take some time for them to setup some kind of age verification. I'm all for the age verification not keeping all the 18+ anime only for Premium members ...just for a time.

For everyone complaining about age verification things. I think it was already there.

Go try and watch school days. I remember getting a warning (which I ignored) when I tried to watch it. I've never gotten another warning which I assume means that since I clicked 'fine whatever' once, it's good for everything.

Although if you want to put warnings in the show synopsis, then do it yourself. There's an edit button.

Aoi Hana is a tasteful, thoughtful story about adolescent same-sex attraction, and I appreciate Crunchyroll bringing it to us. I hope Sasameki Koto will be picked up as well.

The presence of Haruka in Kanamemo is...unfortunate, but I'll continue to watch in the hope of more sweet Yuuki/Yume moments.

I hadn't heard that Yokuwakaru Gendai Maho had yuri elements. I'd been tentatively considering trying it anyway, but I definitely will now.

Also, I fully support yaoi. Junjou Romantica was one of the best series I've seen in a long time. Now if only they could make a yuri version...

Sorry, I'm not a Japanese and haven't known Japanese language, so I wouldn't understand the word 'Yuri, Loli, Yaoi, Hentai, etc...' mean... that people here discussed about (seemed like a hot topic!)... however, I presumed that it might be the sexuality genre of the shows....

If so, I do agree to have 'block age' system here.... I'm almost a half life person.... and I do concern of many underage kids try to get advantage in an inappropriate show (for them) just for experiencing their growth. esp, not on the nice and family environment based here in CR.

Recently, I haven't watched anime here everyday (as I did before the license came in)... I just keep CR for watching Naruto shippunden, Shugo Chara, Reborn only.... I love CR picture quality... that's why I'm still its premium member... To be honest, I didn't like other shows much in its index... but I do respect the variety of people's favorite... that I'm glad CR staff work so hard to get new anime in... however, please pre-consider of the group of your audience... (I'm sure you did!)

Good discussion here.. and some has a good point... hope that all of these discussion is for helping CR staff to keep up good work... criticism is good if based on developing the quality of its services.

First off, if you can't comprehend that the subject of my earlier post was the recent simulcast additions for this season (which does NOT include Saki or Shangri-la), after I put it in such plan english; then, perhaps, you should NOT quote and respond to my post when you are that clueless about it's content.

Secondly, I've never mentioned anything about me having a problem with yuri or comedy themed anime series. That's some retarded notion of YOUR OWN MAKING.
I'd, kindly, ask you to refrain from so pathetically misrepresenting my posts in the future, thanks.

Finally, I never stated that ALL of my described topics of perversion applied to all three of the other new simulcasts, individually. Again, another ridiculous notion of your own making, which I'd ask you to be intelligent enough to discontinue with.


Couple of things, if you want to continue having a conversion I ask you to refrain from throwing insults around. They do not help your argument one bit, and only help to discount your argument. Also, just because you didn't comment on Saki and Shangri-La, doesn't mean I can't comment on them. They are still ongoing and hence they are relevant in the discussion of recent simulcasts.

Quote from your first post:

So I'm watching the first episode of this, thinking, "with the trashy hentai/yuri CR's been vomiting on us, lately, this is bound to be fanservice crap".


I don't know how that statement can be read in a way that makes it seem like you enjoy yuri. You grouped yuri in with hentai, and called it trashy. Sorry, but that doesn't seem to be words of someone who doesn't have a problem with the yuri theme.

So don't say it's something I made up, when you yourself have posted.



Kanamemo's fanservice centers around the sexualization and molestation of the 13-year-old main character by a 20+ year old PLOT-PROFESSED pedophile, with the occasional molestation of a 7-or-so-year-old grade schooler thrown in for extra pedo/loli appeal. When done in a so-called "light-hearted" comedic setting, that can be justifiably termed, "pedophiliac shenanigans".
-The fact that it seems you've watched the show and failed to understand the plot to such pitiful degree, is your problem.... not mine.
-The broadcasters of the show, themselves, classify it as a loli (aka animated pedophilia) anime.
-Anyone, who can watch one episode of this series and refuse to acknowledge the raging lesbian hormones, should be informed that they are also refusing to acknowledge the existence of one of this show's most central comedic themes.... the raging lesbian hormones. :facepalm:


First, lets quote you for your hypocrisy.


I'd, kindly, ask you to refrain from so pathetically misrepresenting my posts in the future, thanks.


You say I refuse to acknowledge that Kanamemo is a yuri? Yet in my post you can see I said Kanamemo was "Yuri based".

Second, there is no molestation, no forcing of sexual situations. The character in question we don't even know her age, only that she's in college. Just because she drinks sake doesn't mean she's of legal age. Just look at the manager, sometimes characters are drawn not to show their age. Back to the character in question, she hasn't done anything illegal, nothing pedophiliac. She gets over excited with all women, but has done no dirty deeds.

Pedophilia definition: As a medical diagnosis, it is defined as a psychological disorder in which an adult experiences a sexual preference for prepubescent children.

Firstly, we don't know if she is an adult without her age. Secondly, no where does it say she has a sexual preference for children. She has no acts of sex and no sexual acts with any child.

Loli does not mean pedophilia, what it does mean is that the characters are young. A loli show does not have to be in sexual scenarios, that is only your biased viewpoint.



Charger Girl is filth, incarnate. Explaining that to someone, who's already managed to be ignorant of that fact, is a waste of my time.


Again, I wont comment on Charger Girl. I'm sorry if it angers you that I do not comment on shows that I have not seen. I'm not about to make up an argument just to please you.



Aoi Hana starts off with one of the main characters becoming emotionally depressed to the point of tears, all because she has an INCESTUAL LESBIAN LUST for her cousin whom she's just became separated from, just as she finds out her cousin's getting married (to a man). I highly doubt that the subject of incest doesn't fall under TABOO SEX wherever you, or anyone reading this, comes from.

And, that's just ridiculous.


Incestual lesbian lust you say? Yet all we've seen is a girl who's emotionally attached to a cousin. There are many cases in this world where relatives are very close to one another. Just because a girl is emotionally attached to a relative, doesn't mean she wants to have sex with them. A relationship is more than just sex and there are plenty of cases where same sex relationships do not forgo sexual acts.

Again, you seem to ignore my comments. I have already stated that Aoi Hana is yuri based. She's a lesbian, and just because she's a lesbian she has to have raging hormones? She always wants to have "taboo sex"? She can't possibly want a simple relationship right?



Those are just a few more detailed comments on the series that where, actually, under discussion. Please, try not to waste my time with anymore of your ignorant, uninformed, mistaken ramblings. Thanks. ^.^


Again, you show signs of being arrogant. I assume that it's either your way or the high way? When ever someone goes against your opinion, you feel inclined to attack them instead of properly discuss the topic at hand. To be honest, there's a high chance I wont respond to this topic. I do not mind a discussion, but I refuse to be the only one in a discussion while the other participant uses insults. For future reference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ad_hominem.



Erm. . . the terms yuri and yoai actually refer to lesbian and homosexual sexual depictions. Loli is taken from Lolita, and refers to a child or underaged person who is sexualized by persons considerably older. Shonen ai and Shoujo ai refer to sexless same gender romance/relationships. Wiki has some articles on all of these. Anyone who tries to play semantics with the clinical definition of pedophilic paraphilia and it's supposed difference from lolicon is really treading into arbitrary territory, since in several countries the genre has already been classified as such. So, depending on where the person you're talking to hails from. . . Looks like The_X_box_360 threw some rocks and the hit dogs hollered.
