You know, I was thinking.
Get an another website server for the dramas, since having another membership makes it ridiculous. Sure, you're going to put them together, but what the heck? Drama Membership? Are you kidding me?
So CR is a OFFICIAL ANIME Website, or is it a site that hosts Asians shows legally?


CR is (as wiki so ellegantly puts it) "focused on streaming East Asian media including anime, manga, drama, music, electronic entertainment, and auto racing content"

hi! we'll have more details very soon... but i think there's a bit of confusion here..

you will be able to get either anime membership (like you do now), or drama membership, or anime + drama membership... so it'll really be just one membership.

Hope at least FIFTEEN good (in my opinion) titles will be available in Poland. If so, I'll definitely consider paying you for the membership.

but i'm not paying TWO memberships, i want ONE membership that includes both.

Also why has no mod answered any of the questions on this thread seems like everyone is asking the same thing and I am also wondering about it myself. It would be nice to get some answers.


There will be a membership that includes drama, animé and music, I suppose. It's a matter of time. I was wondering why nobody answers questions asked too. Maybe they just don't read them?...

we are trying the best we can, and a decent number of the new drama titles will be available in the UK (at least 30-40). a lot of times its not up to us which region we get rights for... even though we try our best to get it for everyone!

anyone in north america will be able to access all drama content!

Call me cynical if you want, but the way this is explained it sounds like bad news. At the moment there isn't enough content in the anime membership and I feel like I'm being ripped off. This is mainly because the shows I can watch are limited by my region to only half of what is actually on the site, but I still have to pay the same price as everyone else - that sucks, no matter how you try to sell it. If I'm getting a subpar service I should pay a discounted price. And now you're adding additional content that I might be able to watch, assuming of course it's even licensed for my region, but you want me to pay for a second membership? No thanks, crunchyroll.

Honestly, I thought crunchyroll going premium with officially licensed content was a good thing and I really wanted to support it, but that opinion has changed. The reality of it all is that what I'm getting out of my membership doesn't seem worth what I paid. This is one membership that likely won't be renewed next year. A second membership is definitely out of the question!

actually, it'll be exactly like you described.... either anime, or drama, or anime + drama (and the anime + drama will cost less than the separate prices).

all our drama titles will be available in north america (yay canada!) and a lot of titles will be available internationally from the get go... so it'll be great!

Seriously? A second, completely separate membership? I better not be reading that right, because that's just ridiculous. As much as I love dramas and want to support the legal distribution of them, that it is out of the question for me, with my budget.

Now, perhaps if it's membership LEVELS. Like, "Anime" and "Anime + Drama" with a reasonable increase in rates (not something stupid like DOUBLE the cost as your post suggests), then I might go for it. But if I have to have TWO subscriptions, screw it. I'll watch dramas elsewhere or continue to download them.

And why are you already implementing a drama membership at all, when you haven't even been able to expand your region restrictions for most series beyond the US and Canada, and even past the US for a few series? This would only make sense if the revenue from drama memberships would provide you with the means/funds to obtain more licenses.

all the drama titles will be available for free streaming. the drama membership will let you skip ads and get all shows in much higher quality!

That's nice. Except it's like we have to pay for everything now. :(

You should give discounts to people who purchase anime and drama membership at the same time. :]

My question is: how many? As I said, whether I will pay or not depends on the quantity of titles available in Poland, so... Anyway, way to go, Shinji!

Thank you shinji, for actually taking the time to read and respond to our comments. Quite a rare quality in a site admin, I find.

So, will people with only anime memberships start seeing ads when watching dramas? Right now anime members don't see any ads for both anime and dramas.


Yep, probably. You see, right now masses of people involved in the production and distribution of Japanese dramas do not make any profit, since there's no membership and advertisements that are shown only to those who does not pay for the animé membership. Although I prefer not to pay for everything, I understand that without such a payment tons of dramas would never become available worldwide. It's a significant milestone towards lifting annoying 'licensing restrictions'.

I'm curious as well because I'm a massive Drama watcher, and with the new available drama you brought Princess Hours! I've wanted to watch it... but it's only for drama members and there is no such thing ...
