CR is safe, in my opinion. You just have to be careful
about the information you give out.
No one else in my school really likes anime, manga, or drama.
So I think it's cool to chat with people who do.^^

i go to crunchyroll cause of the anime and the interesting people i chat with XD


i have alot of friends in rl who have the same interests as me l-)

in real life i cant really find ppl who shares the same interests i have - most of them make fun of wat i like - so adding SOME STRANGER WHO MIGHT BECOME A FRIEND BUT DOES SHARE THE SAME INTEREST (THAT!!!) i DONT THINK IT REALLY IS A BAD IDEA

that is just to put it in simple state and most likely THE NO.1 REASON


i'll keep thinking about your Question and will be back ^^

but one more thing how about directing the Q to U ? (( just curios about yr opinion )) xD




One of my hobbies include anime. Well, I've been on different anime forums searching for a variety of anime shows to watch but haven't found a website that stream 720p so I found this website by chance. I decided to spend a few dollars watching them in 720p but haven't found a decent loyal fanbase that likes to share common topics posted by me. I do download most if not all my animes in 720p and 1080p but if there's no such quality 480p is usually the next best thing. Most other anime forums aren't really good at spending times on certain issues we deal with everyday but delude themselves to pretending to be an anime character online and teasing with anime jokes. It didn't feel enjoyable since the experience wasn't there. The number one reason I joined this website was to stream brand new series without getting thrown off topic by flamers and what nots. Anyways, there's many people that like anime in rl, u just have to find the right people to talk with. If you can't find that interest you can obtain new ones from them or use this as a hobby that you enjoy. I feel that the random people you add on CR usually act differently than they do and give fake personalities to you. I don't see how this will make yourself feel natural when you're talking to them about topics.



well i never met anyone who pretended to be an anime character (( maybe U mean the COSPLAY ADDICTz )) but ppl who pretend to be = i think in someway somehow its creepy & weird =S ....

Well yah one of the reason that i JOINED CR was becuz almost all the anime series was found there , and had the best quality with no video errors .... but recently YES im dissappointed on wats going on in here

AND YES (( anime - manga - or drama )) ain't the only interest i have (( U can check my profile ))

basiclly our accounts are like masks (( THE SCREEN ITSELF IS A MASK )) - even nicknames they aint our real names (( U yourself have a nickname and is hiding behind your screen im not saying its a bad thing & besides everyone does the same thing even me , yes im hiding behind my screen so? wat about it? i dont see wats the big deal about it? )) if U dont trust anybody then dont u shouldnt force yourself too , somehow after talking to some ppl U may feel relieved and start trusting them

U say ppl aint honest and have a change in personality while talking to others online, well i dont thinks thats a bad thing either , instead i find and explore more about my HIDDEN SELF..... AND yes i feel i have the FREEDOM to say watever i want and actually i see my true self

(if u feel that ppl are faking everything if u feel that u are being decieved then just dont talk to them ever , u may not know it but there are some ppl who are the exact same thing in real life and here

and hey in the last sentence u said ( topics ) wat topics do U mean

I think u misunderstood what the intent was going to be. There's never been a trust issue when talking to some strangers online. Usually what u say is the typical response from people that enjoy talking to strangers on anime forums with that in mind and it's a form of a bias opinion. What i'm trying to say is that talking to someone on a personal level is not going to happen with someone u meet online that u haven't seen their face. People lie all the time on anime forums, it could be that u might lie to someone about a hobby u enjoy but not necessary have a motivation to continue with it. It's the experience people get from this, if u enjoy talking to people around the world through the internet and making friends then thats what u chose too do and you think its acceptable. If you don't think u are that type of person and u hide behind a screen to pretend to be someone else then thats what forums r for. Seriously, u cant take anything serious or joke on the internet since chatting from the other end isn't like that in rl. Anyways, topic can be anything that u found interesting or that has sparks your attention, such as this thread.

I add strangers. I only know 2 of my CR friends in real life. But that's what's so great about the internet. You can interact with people who you may have never known otherwise who have similar interests as you. Crunchyroll is an ONLINE community where people who like anime/drama can come together.

Every time I stop to think about it, the internet truly is a magnificent thing. We can communicate with people on the other side of the world almost instantly. I know many of you younger kids grew up with the internet, but I grew up watching the internet grow into the massive world wide web it is today.

So, is it a bad idea to add friends on CR? I personally think that the internet in general has opened up the world to online relationships. CR isn't a place for people who already know each other to interact. It's for people who don't know each other to interact. If you already know each other in real life, you're much better off going out in person and hanging out.

I hate strangers who speak the same language as me.. ESP ppl who r in my country..
anyplace else... I don't mind =] meeting new ppl isnt that bad, this is my seventh account and I have met MANY ppl I KNOW I can count on, they changed my life.. Even though it has been only four to five years we r still close friends and trust each other to the point that we have each other's numbers (( only girls numbers, the only guys here who o have their number r either an uncle or a cozn of mine ))

so anyway.. It's better adding strangers than ppl u know in my opinion
I personally don't lie about myself but u don't have to say anything I don't wanna say
besides, like someone have already said, not thy many ppl in rl have those things in common with u..

I add strangers. It's safe as long as you don't tell them your address and stuff.
