It IS free, you just have to wait for a week to view it. Besides, leechers like us shouldn't complain when we watch it for free!

When you pay you don't just pay for Naruto, you pay for more anime , if you don't really watch any other anime except Naruto then it probably wouldn't be worth it and last time I checked you do pay for cable but unlike cable television here you just have to wait a week for the latest episode the rest is free.

well i use to be like you wait a week for naruto but i cannot wait a week so i decided to pay beside i get to see other anime that i probably would not see for free. so it has it advantages and i'm sure disadvantages but is worth it that is my opinion!!

No offense, but I dont see why any1 would pay for membership. Seriously, sure Crunchyroll has it out the fastest but guess what...in probably less than 24 hours...heck maybe even 12 hours...another site will have it up. Whenever Crunchyroll has an anime that comes out in the day...later during nighttime on that same day...another site will have it out....so I have NO IDEA why people would pay for such a thing. I mean I bet most people arent online on crunchyroll AS SOON as the anime episode gets posted on here so....techically if you dont watch it THE MOMENT it comes out...then it just means its less time that another site will have it up.

I pay for my membership to support CR so they can keep on doing what they're doing. I prefer to watch anime on CR knowing that it's legal and endorsed by the owners. Say what you will, but fansubs are breaking the law and downloading and distributing their stuff is piracy. There's only one anime now (Bleach) which I get through fansubs. The rest of the animes I watch I either buy or can find on CR.

Membership also gets rid of all the ads that are around the site and through the videos. $20 for 3 months is also really cheap. I spend more than that a week on impulse buys as it is, at least this 20 went to a good cause!

Also, Naruto comes out here at 9:00PM, which fits in perfectly with my schedule. Once it comes out I watch it. I don't have to wait 12-24 hours for it to come up on a fansub site. Then download it. Then watch it. Then delete it because keeping it is a waste of space.

If you don't mind the ads or prefer fansubs, or don't care about supporting CR, then sure, membership probably isn't for you. But these are the reasons why I prefer a paid membership.

I feel exactly like speekma, but really why are you so frustrated because people get memberships on CR?

1) I prefer to watch them when they come out, yes I'm impatient.
2) You're supporting the creators and CR, through this support they sign more contracts and stream more anime.
3) Maybe you like to make bets but something tells me you'd lose everything you have if that would be an official bet, I watch all my favorite anime minutes if not seconds after they're released and I'm not the only one and the others aren't few.
4) Another site won't have it at HD and if somehow you manage to find one or two HD episodes they are far from 720P and even at 480 they look pretty bad.
5) Watching anime at the highest quality in seconds without much bother imo is way better than looking for your episodes, downloading (filling you HDD with a lot of mbs that get deleted in minutes) and then finally watching your anime after all your excitement is gone.

I don't have the membership but even though I can watch the newest naruto episode on other sites, I actually wait to watch it on crunchyroll. And i feel like I'm supporting the site too bc i am watching the commercials and those companies must pay crunchyroll to show commercials and advertisements.

I'm just glad that crunchyroll doesn't require you to pay to watch the anime episodes.

To Speekma: Kinda surprised to see someone watch anime for a noble reason (...well at least I think its worth being respected upon). I wont deny you or anything like that...Supporting a site you like is always a nice thing to do. I was just going for the rationalize logic.

To danieldust: Dont really know how I came off as frusterated. Just felt like putting my 2 cents in. If your able to go watch the anime at the time it comes out...kudos to you. When I usually see anime from another site...its generally not bad quality. I have no idea what your comment about bets had anything to do with what I said. I dont download anime...I only stream...I dont get the point of downloading anyway.

Now without any morals involved (Like supporting the site since it brings us the anime)....Id say the only logical reason to buy a membership here would be for the quality of the show....and to me well....thats not a good trade off considering how other sites will have it in decent quality (most of the time). The quality difference is not that big usually for me. And to me.....thats just not a logical decision. But hey, kudos to all of ya who buy the memberships...you will always see it first and in better quality! Congrats!

But dont get me wrong. If this site has an episode out that I want to watch and its not member-only....then yea ill watch it on here.

And for real, Im not being sarcastic or anything....its nice to see how people really like crunchyroll and will do anything to support it. I tip my hat off to yall. I hope I didnt leave a bad impression on yall
