'I would never pay to watch crap. That is what Naruto is crap.. Not a fan of that kiddy shallow show anyhow.. But then if this sight had good anime that I could not get at my other sights then maby I pay.
I pay to see English Dub of Slam Dunk. Or more mature anime.

I use crunchyroll for the forums. I care little for CR points or other childish crap like Cartoons made for little kids.. Like Naruto.
That is all good well for you guys.. but why would I wast my money on a mindless fad... or other cartoons I can watch else where.
And so I stick to the forums.

I wouldn't mind seeing some more mature animes either but I don't mind the selection the site has already. The forums are where I've been spending most of my CR time lately though. When I get some more free time that isn't in 5 minute spurts I'll get back to the anime. For now though, too busy

Nobody asked or forces you to buy a membership, all you need to do is wait for 1 week either watch it somewhere else. Is that so difficult to do ? o_o

Well actually i do it to support the anime companies and yes there have been times when i thought that this was a waste but it is just like everything else in my life i put a value on it's importance and convenience to me and seriously $20 for 3 months that is about 34 cents a day. Here are the facts Naruto is one of if not the most popular anime worldwide right now so if you are gonna start something new you do it with something popular.
Anime like everything else depends on the person's opinion of it...Alot of people would tell you that one of their best animes is DBZ which in my opinion is one of the worst animes....... if you don't like it don't pay for it... the usual response to this is why pay for it when you can get it for free... my response to this is I have seen way too many good things be discontinued because people don't pay for it and if my 34 cents a day keeps something i like on the air a little longer i am happy.... and if you like what i am paying for and you get to watch it for free, you should thank my ass cause if everyone like me stops paying for it it will no longer exist.....

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 would assume those other sites your referring to are sites posting fansubs that return exactly $0 to the company.

So the answer is the same as the reason some people pay for songs instead of pirating them, or rent or buy DVDs instead of bittorrenting episodes of their favorite shows.

I certainly would never claim to never watch series from fansub sites, but I resort to them only if no legitimate source is readily available. After all, if there is no means of getting revenue back to the rights holder, it makes little difference whether I watch it or not.

My main reason for getting a paid membership was to get rid of the commercials. Getting the episodes sooner and getting better quality were just icing on the cake.

Frankly, I wish Funimation had a paid no-commerical option for their site. They have the same issue as CR did; too many repeats of the same commercials.

Why pay twice I say. I'm broke so if I already pay on one end why pay on the other. That is to say, if I pay for cable/satellite why pay more for other channels or HD channels of the same shows. Well, I pay for internet so I'm not going to also pay for the content which I watch on said paid internet. It is commendable that people do try to do right by the production companies of the anime, but for now I'll be cheap.

Note: This is the only area where I consider myself a pirate. I never download music or movies for free or pay. Still prefer the store for all that.
