Insert picture of a gigantic Troll here...

1. We don't get 50% like we have been and has been rammed down our throats in every post by Shinji
2. We get titles of questionable goodness
3. We get titles that are called "simulcasts" but are airing over a week late
4. We now get a title being called a "simulcast" that has an original air date of 2006
5. From the looks of the Haruhi section they are only going to be showing the original 14 episodes not the renewal 2009 eps (not that it matters those episodes should be destroyed anyway)

This is like 1000000 times worse than Nice Boat... Why didn't they just wait to post all the new Gundam series they got until now and call those simulcasts too?

I'm holding back some choice words right now... and am seriously thinking about canceling my anime membership after this troll incident. Haruhi should be just like every other title that has aired years ago that CR adds, a bonus, not part of a current season announcement...

And half the posts in this thread are probably just what they hoped for... show a title that was ranked extremely high and is very popular and maybe people will say "oh good show! thanks!" instead of "TROLL" like we all should be...

If a new meme of epic proportions along the lines of Nice Boat doesn't come from this I'll be a sad panda.

*EDIT*

What pisses me off even more is everyone's attitude of "oh this is awesome!"... The whole idea behind CR with having anime memberships and deals with Japanese partners was to simulcast currently airing shows in Japan so that people in other countries could see them without having to download a fansub.

The problem here is not that they added Haruhi... that's great they added this title... but the problem is that on the lineup page, on the facebook announcement it all says "simulcast"... and yes yesterday when whoever it was said "there are more announcements on the way" we all assumed it would be a new title not something from 4 years ago... because every time they make an announcement during the start of a new season it's a new title... there was no reason to believe it wouldn't be something new.

This also seems to be it, the last title announced for the Spring 2010 season.... no k-on!!, no maid-sama, night raid, under the bridge, none of the other dozen or so titles that looked good this season will be announced here.

doesn't matter I like it xD, they should do this to other animes too (like bleach and one piece), and they should make reborn available in more places x3

Ah, that's pretty cool. While it can be said that "everyone" has already seen this, there are actually still a few poor souls that haven't. This should complete them (assuming this gets followed up by something, my preference being Lucky Star).

Well if that's it for this season's announcements, I hope maybe there's some other older shows that will make their way here. I think there's enough Gundam to last me, but with it being what I watch everytime I don't watch a simulcast, I may soon be returning to the regular library of shows which still looks a little unsatisfactory. (That's not meant as a complaint, as CR is still, for now, in a position of doing as I hope fulfilling my intents.)

I don't really feel I should be one to say this, but for advertising purposes next time make sure to emphasize other current and ongoing series (it's not too late to do this, in a new news post, but it'll only be an improvement at best for many minds are already set). Many people are clearly ignoring that CR still has several simulcasts.

...I do have to emphasize my worry about what happens if I get through Gundam too soon. There's a lot of good shows not on CR that are tempting me. But I don't want to accumulate new debts to the creators...

(I also really hope that all the Drama wasn't a financially poor decision. I'll just convince myself that negotiations are incredibly difficult.)

As a registered company doing business in the US, can't you get in trouble with the FTC for advertising Haruhi as a simulcast? That's false advertising if I ever saw it. Plain and clear mis-statement of the facts, no matter what your definition of simulcast is.

I love Haruhi, and I was one of the morons who even loved watching Endless Eight, because although it was fairly repetitive, it was exactly what I'd expect from Haruhi. I think it's an awesome score for Crunchyroll to pick it up.

But it's not a simulcast, and it's false advertising when you promised us 5 new spring 2010 titles and we only got 4. Haruhi should have been advertised the same way Gundam was.

Weren't you guys all moaning about getting all the old shows back on here and when there add a new one you moan even more. Seems like a lose/lose situation for them.

Membership canceled... I can put up with not having Fairy Tail and having to watch a week behind and commercials... CR isn't worth the money this season.... I'm sure no one will shed a tear over a single canceled membership though.

I never thought Haruhi would be the straw that broke the camels back on this one...

Seems like, I don't know, we should get enough shows to justify the subscription. I don't think that getting old and new shows are mutually exclusive. The lineup this season is weak, to say the least. I'm probably going to cancel my subscription soon, but I'm not upset with crunchyroll, I just don't think it is worth it. Communications with staff and customers have always been poor, and I hope that over time CR will be able to improve. Getting upset won't solve anything, and I don't think anyone at CR actually reads the forms.
