Most of the hate I'm seeing is totally unwarranted. It's a great series and makes for a great addition to the library here. I've actually already watched it along with the second season, but I'm not going to damn this site for adding it because of that. Many people are just now getting into anime or may not have had a chance to watch it before, so it's inclusion is totally justified. BTW I am a paid member and in no way feel that its' inclusion is wasting my membership.

A few more real simulcasts are on the way? That's good to hear michana. Thank you for the clarification!

I’m sure no-one here is damming the site for doing what they did; all their doing is expressing what they think of this truthfully…or would you rather people force a smile

That is actually the very impression I got on many of the posts. Granted the most excessive do tend to catch the attention more than the more moderate so those more excessive posts may be in the minority.

Anyway, those who voiced reasonable concerns are fine, since constructive critiquing should always be welcomed. However, the excessively nonconstructive "Shinji sucks", "wasting my membership", "utter fail" type posts serve little purpose other than emo raging. People have to keep in mind that this site isn't tailored made for just what they want to watch but for anime/drama watchers in general. That being said, there is nothing wrong with wanting more of the new Anime season too. I too hope that we get as many of the new anime's as possible.

I’m sure they have their reasons, but remember this “It’s just a word until someone comes along and gives it meaning” =P

Mind. Consider it blown. Woo! I remember watching this on the Crunch back when it got taken down! Now I can watch it new and officially improved, with WITH 0 GRAMS OF GUILT!

EDIT: Oh, going back to read some of the other posts now, I don't know why everyone's got their rumpus in a bunch. I think Crunchyroll is slowly amassing the media that it requires to restore it to how it was before it went straight. Basically, it was like a library, a library that was frequently stocked with new books, whereas the current Crunch is more like a TV station. Even though Haruhi is old hat, I'm still glad that it's kind of available to watch you know? Not everyone is as in the know as you think. Not everyone's heard of Haruhi, strange as that may sound. There are a lot of people who like watching past series. Back when Crunchyroll had just a smattering of odd titles, I really enjoyed browsing through, being able to enjoy titles created in years in which I was not an active member of the subculture. All the power to ya Crunch! You're in the big leagues now!

I LOVE Haruhi, but yeah I saw this when it first came out about 4 years ago, and already got the DVD box set. But since there are some poor unfortunate souls who still haven't seen this series (I run into them from time to time to this very day), this is actually good news for CR. Personally though I'll get excited when they get "the Disappearance" on here. Hopefully that'll be real soon....like b4 the end of the year. But I'm not holding my breath on it.

Still would like to see more new simulcasts, and would LOVE to see K-On!! (2nd season) on here, but sadly its looking more and more like that's just not gonna be the case. I had to DL the first ep of that via torrents. Still, we'll see. At least I got Durarara to continue to look forward to.

Even though its a bit old and the story line is slow in progression its still a decent addition to CR for those who haven't seen the series. I can't say that I'm disappointed about this one since it doesn't really matter to me all that much on what CR decides to pick up since i do have other places where i can get the anime series ( new and old ) that CR hasn't / doesn't sub. i can understand how some might be a little put off on this decision though, for a little older anime i would have much rather seen Higurashi added to CR's library over this one but that's just my personal opinion. Grats to CR for adding a decent anime to its library although you might have made some pretty angry on this decision ( me not included ). Ever thought about doing a poll on which series should be added? I've seen others do it and its worked very well. Might be worth giving a shot?

I agree with KaiserSosei on K-ON S2 I think it would be a wise decision to add it. I mean, who didn't like season 1?

Premium Members can make suggestions in the exclusive group forum. but.... who knows if anyone will give a hoot over at CR other then BasouKazuma (whom has no control over licensing and such).

Nice addition. I've been meaning to rewatch this but have been too lazy. If it's just a click away I might finally get around to it. Will you guys be adding the second season as well?

A bit slow, but nonetheless, got a very popular title from Kadokawai (Which removed two simulcasts after they finished airing in Japan, for some reason). Good job, CR staff!

Edit: Ah, its not in chronological order. That might make it a bit confusing for new viewers...

Thanks for a new series crunchy roll / shinji, I really appreciate the effort the shinji team is putting into getting us the anime's for free in good defintion. I wish i was a member so that I could watch it on HD :). anyways, good job shinji, i can understand that its probably really hard to get the liscences to these videos. Sooner or later, you'll be able to get one piece or like bleach XD, I will have fun rewatching this one
