What happened to the recently added page? It used to be here:

http://www.crunchyroll.com/recent_anime

It was a convenient way to go directly to the new episodes I want to see.

Now clicking on the "recently added" on the left only shows what shows were updated (the dates aren't even right!). I have to click on the show and then locate the new episode in the list.

Please bring back the previous "Recently Added" page. Thanks!

I wholeheartedly agree. I liked seeing the shows in the order they were made available online.

The "All New Anime" part of the front page does what "Recently Added" does, but to expand on that takes you to the page discussed above.

The dates seem to be geared to the non-members, showing the episode that air for the non-member. There is no mention of the released episode(s) for subscribers.

I would like it as well.

in fact thats the only thing I really want, just a button to that from anywhere in the site, its the only place I go to on this site.

I felt a piece my my soul die when i went to click it.

I've already looked over the site, and seen whats already here and exhausted those shows, I just want to see whats been added so I can watch those. Big pain to look at each show I watch to see if they've been updated.

Ah, that section on the main page is better than nothing, but it's way down on the page! I never would have known it was there if you hadn't pointed it out!

Just give us back the old "Recently Added" page in all its simple, fast-loading, small-thumbnail glory!

All I had was two mouse clicks and I was able to see what new episodes were out... Click for icon to to CR. Then click for new eps.

The "All New Anime" part may have the same role as the old recently added page, but still I find the new page is less intuitive and harder to use. The old page provided a easily assessable way of keeping up with episodes which new set up just doesn't match, So basically i'm saying exactly the same thing as previously said and want the old page back

We're aware of the errors with the new Recently Added page and will have them fixed so that it is useful.

OK, the times are fixed now, but I still have to go the shows' pages to locate the new episodes. If you make the thumbnails link directly to the episodes, then it will be usable again.

How about this: a customizable RSS feed. Right now there is only one, and it shows everything. If it could allow options such as "anime only" and "simulcasts only" then that would be a big help.

While it's not impossible to keep track of things the new way, I too enjoyed the old recently added episodes page. Just throwing in my two cents I guess.

Another reason is that the current Recent Anime page does not seem to show recent additions to animes that were not recently added to the CR roster.

I'll certainly live if things stay as they are, but simply preferred the older, easier option.

I remember just before the most recent change users were able to browse through almost 200 pages of thumbnails to view different anime showings. I am glad those are gone, but I do have a question about it: is there a list on the site that has ALL the showings up by order of release date/upload on to the crunchyroll site, not just the current seasons?

I am one of those OCD people who was starting from the tail end and making a futile attempt at watching all on the site

Anyways, if one exists, this would be awesome to have. It would get me and maybe a few others on track. If not for anything, it would be good for records or database keeping.

Thank you, and I do think the site is great. I just finished watching Speed Racer.
