I mentioned this in another thread and a few other posters agreed with me so I thought Id make a thread about this to see if by possibly having the support of other members we could return to this style of new series announcements. For those who were not Cr users in the past: About 3 or 4 seasons ago ( I can't remember precisely which one) the format for announcing new series acquisitions for the upcoming season was vastly different (and vastly better in my opinion.) A "Lineup Calendar" was posted about 2 or 3 weeks before the actual start of the new season. During the new shows launch week each day on the calendar had a series of blanks that represented new series' announcements for that day. There might have been 2 on Monday, 1 on Tuesday, 3 on Wednesday etc... I thought this was a great way to do it as it built excitement for the upcoming season (since it was posted a few weeks before) and many people speculated about what shows would be added which day according to their Japanese release date. I remember reading countless forum threads such as "'x' is going to be released on Wed. in Japan and since CR showed 'y' in the past and 'x' is based of it, I'm sure this will be one of the licenses for that day." I'm sure the page hits skyrocketed during this time (good for CR as it is a partially ad funded venture) since at least I know personally one of the first things I did when getting home each day was turning on my pc and logging on here to see what was announced, and I'm sure that many others did the same. Lately we only get a vague post about upcoming news "soon" and then all of a sudden a title is announced. Yes the result is the same, but it's not nearly as fun. So if we get enough people to support going back to the old calendar method of announcement, I thought possibly we might see a change come time to announce the summer season. If you remember this method and feel the same way, or even if you weren't around back then but think it sounds cool, post here and let's see if we can go back to the calendar announcements.

I do remember that. It made finding anime easier for me. Then now I am either searching in the banner or Recently added for anime updates.


But then again its up to the mods and admins who have the last say.
