My apologies to those who misunderstood me.


Hmmmmmm lets see there SEEMS to be quit a few opinions about Cr and how they mishandled the release of this series on this site. In my opinion they should have started from episode one and released them two at a time until it was brought up to date.

I believe they released this series in this order to frustrate those that ILLEGALLY copy and post the series to their site.

SO was it unfair? maybe, did I agree with it, not really, but in no way was their a disservice to the fans, it seems to me you and many others are spoiled and believe you are owed something. I did read what was released and was responding to the many posters who where complaining and acting as if it is their right to watch ILLEGAL anime. It was posted on CR and yes there may have been a better way to handle the situation but I doubt if it would have made a difference to those that I saw posting.

They want what they want and they want it NOW, I cant blame them as I feel that way about certain things but I am a consumer who fully understands that you get what you pay for!

While I agree with some of your points, allow me to pose one simple question, if you please.

Question: How do you think Crunchyroll ever came into being? What did CR do before the beginning of this year 2009?

CR was a streaming site for Fan Subs. The very point you are making is what CR was before Jan 1st 2009.

It was my hope that if this issue was talked about and people brought it to CR's attention that maybe, Just Maybe, they would listen and actually sub the gap between Ep 12 and Ep 16. To my shock, they seem to be doing that. My opinion of CR has improved.

I mentioned prior that CR is not under any obligation at all to back fill the subs 13-15. I also applaud CR for the strives that they have made over this past year in the anime business. I truly thought that CR was dead and gone at the first of the year. But fortunately they are connected to some deep pockets, and now CR is helping to shape the way licensing and business is being done in respect to some of the newer titles being released in Japan.

My retort is not a flame, I'm trying to point out that my contention was for CR to consider the fact that a number of fans (dare I say a lot?) who were following this anime would have been totally thrilled if CR had done the "back fill" of the missing episodes. Seeing that they are now doing it, I applaud CR for their action.

Spoiled? Yea, I agree with you, some people think that they have some grounds to complain to FanSubbers. On the other hand, I greatly appreciate all the people who take time out of their busy life to sub something. They owe nobody nothing, and no fan of these sub groups has any grounds to bitch at anytime. The fans owe subbers a debt of gratitude.

Can't wait until Ep 13!! I hope CR releases it soon. I've not had a chance to watch HanaSei since episode 12 was done. Now it seems a Long Long time ago.

I like this!


Someone with a point that also finishes their thoughts, LOL. I too have been impatiently awaiting the release of episode 13, and yes CR was like so many other sites that stream anime.

I have several that I still use


You have a valid point and I do agree with you, I just wanted to share the opposing view.

Unfortunately www.animecrazy.net links are dead for Ep 13. The vid got pulled :(

If you happen to run across another spot where 13 can be seen, please let us know! Maybe CR will pop 13 out soon!

Thanks raidahs for your kind words and good work on the opposing view.

Uh, yeah. So, where's 13. This is a really great way to keep people from becoming paying customers.

Me too. Yes, I watched the fansubs up to 12 like most people here, but I feel really happy when I can watch something legally. I really hope CR lets us have episode 13 really soon, no one will watch 14+ otherwise.

LOL, I've been coming back several times per day to check for Episode 13

Looks like I'll win the "Frequent Visitor" Award again just because Ep 13 is missing



Here's hoping
