Does the Iron Man 2 advertisment really fit in at Crunchyroll?

I know Iron man has its own cartoon series but is it really related to anime... or Crunchyroll at all?

It's mostly there I think since heroman is licensed by marvel comics and since that's the case they probably asked to have this put up

Free money = Good.

I'll bet that the Ironman advertisement generated more money than all the previous advertisements on the site in the first hour.

Does anyone really hate Ironman enough to find a logical argument against advertising the movie for tomorrow? These seems like a pretty simple cost benefit analysis to me.

You could ask the same thing about Orbit, Starburst, Project Responsibility, Verizon Fios, At&t wireless, Motorola Flip...whatever other random ads pop up in the middle of an episode. I think Ironman has more relevance to anime fans than anything else we've seen, other than whatever games they might advertise.

While not all comic fans & anime fans can crossover, it's not like it's unheard of. I saw an Ironman cosplay at an anime convention last year. I think he may have even won an award for the costume. Just something to think about I guess.

CR isn't just an anime streaming site but also a K-drama and J-Drama streaming site as well... Moreover, the Iron Man 2 ad is necessary since 70-80% of the users here doesn't pay for the anime membership.

It's clearly to make some money, i would guess the link is a affiliate link that gives CR a percentage of the profits when people enter the site through the ad, I kinda doubt they care if it's relevant or not as long as they make money from it.

Tbh, I don't think it fits in with CR. Pick something CR-, manga- or anime-related at least...

Does it matter? It's an advertisement, and not everyone here is only interested in anime, drama

It doesn't fit in really considering most of CR's audience are anime/manga fans.
