I like the new crunchy. it sucked for a bit when it first went from 'gray' to full on legal but now that it's legal library has grown some it's not so bad. granted there were some awesome obscure animes on here that I doubt would ever get licensed .. those were fun to watch but. really. I don't miss the old CR at all.

Old CR back in 2006-late 2008:
Groups were actually active, there was Music Videos, a boat load of anime, a lot of dramas
Forums were filling up like crazy, the chat room was always full, everyone was on crunchyland

After shinji took off all of the music because it was copyrighted and took off all of the anime and dramas to re-upload them with professionals subtitling them and not the fans anymore everyone started to leave because they were so pissed off. And usually I hate the people that always complain about missing the Old CR but lately I'm starting to miss it too. No one is active anymore.


This is my feeling as well. I was introduced to all the Asian music I now love through the "old Crunchyroll" when there was music videos to see. Now...it's basically anime, and I don't watch it. I come in to see what people are thinking, via the forums, but even that has gone stale (in my opinion). It seems, to me, that the "new and improved" Crunchyroll should have never been born....the old Crunchyroll was more fun and I was always anxious to see what was going on. Truthfully, I have never "donated" to the site, but if I had, and then it became what it currently is, I think I would ask for my money back. Now, it's more like something to do when I'm just too stinking bored to do anything else....or need something to make me sleepy so I can sleep for work that night.

It is actually good that the animes got licensed but at least they didn't have to delete the music videos or whatever they had back then. Not many people are active :'(

In 2006 there were no accounts. You didn't even have to sign up to watch videos.
Mmm, but I was here in 2006. It must've been sometime in 2007 when I created the account, I can't remember.

Kinkyhamster wasn't around when C.R was at its finest. He missed out. Btw, I miss the little gerbil. :
2008 was a good year, I remember him then, but let's face it: the guy was an ass.
I could care less if he comes back (which I doubt because they have his IP address), but he did make things interesting, and it was a lot more lively.

From a social aspect:
CR has improved dramatically as a company, but with all the changes I feel it is turning more into a social networking site (ie: facebook) rather than a community for those interested in asian media. Although there was more flaming and trolls in "Old CR", it was generally light-hearted. I feel like there are more boundaries and more people who just like to be mean (gossipers) rather than attempting to be funny. This is probably attributed to the increase in users rather than the changes though.

I thought SUPER OLD CR was awesome, although not perfect: the days before guestbooks, groups, cr membership, crland, a game section (it used to be merged with a 'general' section), the silly car forums, and the cr chat (WE HAD IRC)!

In conclusion, CR sold out so more rules were applied. More people joined which helped turn the site into a networking site which increased the number of posts over nine thousand which created chaos.

Old CR was really fun. Bashers, flamers, trolls, haters, spammers are common place and you have to watch your back to avoid being attacked by those people. But what's best about the old CR is the really old anime that's really hard to find. Hopefully those Corporate people will consider to feature their old and obscure anime (Especially anime from the 80's) in this site instead of the anime that we've already seen in TV.

The new CR is good but the old one is even better.

You have a point. It is becoming more of a networking site but not in all areas. Maybe they should put some of the old CR back, although I have no idea what it is :S.

I see.
So you're telling me that I can't come back because they have my IP address?
