For your continuing shows, I am watching 8 of the 10 listed. I consider that getting my money's worth.

As for the new ones:

Chu Bra -- (will not watch) This series was designed for the *amusement* of middle aged lolicons. I am not a middle aged lolicon. The only way I would watch this garbage is if Crunchyroll paid me, and not the other way around.

So-Ra-No-Wo-To -- (may watch) I have watched the first two episodes. While the first episode was interesting, the second seemed to drag. The character designs are extremely generic, as are their personalities. Still, the background art and animation quality will keep me watching for a few more episodes.

Omamori Himari -- (will not watch) "ordinary high school boy!!!! / sixteenth birthday!!!!! / a mysterious catgirl named Himari appears!!!!" McAnime!!! Pass. This is the anime to watch if you think McDonald's and Burger King qualify as "fine dining".

Durarara -- (WATCHING!!!) -- You guys scored big-time here, getting my most desired show of the season. I watched the first episode and it is REALLY GOOD!! Thank you, Crunchyroll!!!!!

Cobra -- (watching) Good, old-school fun. Sure, there is a ton of fanservice, but it is the old-school, ridiculous kind of fanservice. Plus it is hilarious. People shouldn't be put off by the older style. It is worth a try.

Hanamaru Kindergarten -- (may watch) First episode was kind of cute, but I'm a little suspicious of the fact that it airs at 3:00 a.m. in Japan. If it gets too pervy, I will drop it. Perverted humor doesn't belong in a show set in a Kindergarten.

So, 2 to (maybe) 4 out of the 6 new shows, I am (currently) watching. That is doing pretty good CR. When you add in the continuing shows, i am watching 10 -12 out of the 16 simulcasts. Good job! You will continue to get my money.

Eh the only one that half way intrests me is Durarara.....I am tired of the fan service anime. I want something with more plot but there doesn't seem to be much to choose from this season, though I do think crunchyroll has got the best of the lot.

I don't know how I could be satisfied when the list of new additions is still missing so many new titles that came out this winter. I still must watch many titles elsewhere.

The last list when you added 20 titles rocked because there were so many great titles but what now with this small addition ?
How about Dance in a vampire bund or Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu, Ladies versus Butlers! or Darker than BLACK: Ryuusei no Gemini?

I really hope you get K-ON season 2 when it comes out ><

my first post here.....

Chu Bar : Watching. A lot of people are crying Loli on this one a bit too soon. First, it is Shoujo.....as in focused towards young girls. Second, if you actually pay attention......somewhat educational. Pretty fun and cute show

Durarara : Watching. This one is a mind trip, and there is a decent amount of action.

Cobra : Watching. Though the jury is still out on if I follow it with any level of dedication. The first couple epps felt like they were....missing something.

So-Ra-No-Wo-To : Not watching. Just couldn't get into it. Might revisit it later just to see if it gains some......depth.

Omamori Himari : Watching. While a bit formulaic in nature, it has potential. First two epps were good and I am interested where they take this one.

Hanamaru Kindergarten : not watching. Just couldn't handle the sugar rush. And romance in a kindergarden setting.......this one could go really bad, really fast.

Overall, pretty happy with the lineup.

Yes, that's the number one headache. Either licensees for countries who take the streaming rights but don't stream the shows themselves, like the dog in the manger, or for some reason the original rights holder only wants the series streamed in certain countries, but while CR was fairly successful getting titles for a few countries, like the UK, there weren't any successes at all for a lot of European, Southeast Asian and Latin American countries.
