Some seriously bad taste. From media blasters you picked this when you should of fought for?...

Shura No Toki, Rurouni Kenshin, and even Seirei no Moribito.

Well, no biggie. That is why I bought all three series and they sit nicely in my anime collection.

Who needs comedy when all you have to do is read CR Forums?

Anime covers a huge number of genre, so if there is one that doesn't match your taste: Get Over it and don’t watch it.

Also, it would be good for those who are even casual fans of anime to get a basic grasp! Get a grasp of the elementary terms used to classify or describe anime. This is for your benefit so you don't look completely foolish when you post.

The following are NOT official terms, but rather general forms of fanspeak used amongst anime fans.

Example of terms for you to look up and learn:

Eye-Candy
Fan Service
Ecchi
Hentai
Yuri & Yaoi
Loli

These are a VERY limited sample, but if you know these terms you won’t use them in a manner that causes you to be written off as an ignorant poster.

Queens Blade at worst can be classified a “Ecchi.” Those of you screaming “porn” or “hentai” need to get a little more background, you look foolish.

Class dismissed, NOW do your homework!!

And anyone outside of NA, sorry but sites like CR can't make the earth flat just for you, be glad someone even tries like they do. You have no idea how the world of media marketing works, not that i have much of a clue either, but its pretty simple that Media rights holders want to make money for every city, muchless country their shows are aired in. he internet is new and SCARY for them, and alot of people think the internet is a huge mega cash machine so want alot of money for internet usage rights... therein lies the problem. Write some letters to your television station / cable providers, send mail to TV Tokyo and such and YES ZOMG they read english.


Just so I get this right what you just said. You are telling me that I should be "glad" that I give them my money and get pretty much little to none for it? And oh wait since I should be glad I prolly should punish myself for even thinking about complaining right? You actually can't be serious about that right. Make the world flat just for us? You are joking right? Of course every company wants to make as much money (besides those view that have certain business models) as they possibly can. And I do also get that they not want everyone to watch their shows for free. But for that reason there is a membership here. I do pay them money so I am able to watch their shows. I and many others do that and still don't get to see that much more than if we would be free members due to those region locks. HD isn't really that much of an argument anymore those days. And unless you are not completely impatient, waiting one week to see them really ain't that hard. So all thats left is the shows. From the last 8 new shows I olny been able to watch 2 of them even so I pay just as much as everyone else?

So eigther they should start making sure that all the shows are available for at least those that do pay a membership, no matter if it is region locked or not. Or they should take less from those that that do get less shows even with their membership. Eigther one would work for me and I would bet that a lot people outside NA would just think the same way about it.




I think they should have seperate pages for international users, but knowing alot of you international users way of using the internet (aka going after all the awesome america targeted and / or created content websites) You all would just click on the CrunchyRoll USA region page and pitch a bitch that you don't have what USA has. the whole "Dangling the goods in front of our face" -- Yea i think they shouldn't put a news article up on say, Crunchyroll Europe, if Europeans cannot view. However, you all would just click "USA" to see what we have and then cry.

I think you should pay less, but if you pay less, then CR has even less money to try and purchase licensing for multiple countries.

I remember when i had to Mod or buy a different game console and dvd player to watch anime / play games from Japan. Guess what? Now Japan and USA are both included in Region-1 lock, i can import japanese games for my PS3 and play them on my American PS3. Regionlock crap takes alot of negotiating and compromising to break down.

I agree that this is by far anything as good as those but belive me when i say this but everyone loves big boobs and thats what sells. This is the main reason Media Blasters got this tittle becuase they know it will sell.

So, you saying CR picked up this title in hopes of increasing membership?

I shouldn't be surprised since this site willingly acquired Girls High. Honestly, its one of the Anime titles worth burning. Its in a certain area in my collection along with ES Otherwise, Neo Ranga, and Wandaba Style...Animes that should of never been made. Seriously, this review said it all.

Girls High - "Now, I'm not one to knock shows with fan-service, I own all of DearS after all. But if you're thinking about buying this show, just buy real porn. It has no plot what-so-ever, just a bunch of contrived situations where high school girls randomly flash their panties. It is so asinine, it hurts to watch."

Queen's Blade - "Are the first few episodes of Queen's Blade trashy? Absolutely. These episodes do have a story, character development, and some action, but those are more complementary to the fan service in this case rather than the other way around. They are not enough at this point to make the series worth watching for someone indifferent to the fan service, but those who appreciate rampant nudity and crotch shots will find good technical merits and at least some substance here."

"So there isn't a lot to say about it. The characters are flat (as in they're not developed personas-- they're all perfectly buxom, natch). The animation's decent, since visuals are the key here. But I doubt there's going to be much of anything worth watching in the future episodes of the show.

That said, it IS very over-the-top (I can't decide whether it's a shame that they didn't take it a more comedic direction, intentionally anyway), so you and your friends might get some LULZ out of watching the first episode and mocking it all the way through, a la Mystery Science Theater 3000."

"Queen's Blade is not a good anime. It is a bad one, but that does not necessarily make it bad to watch. Sometimes mindless entertainment is necessary. There are far more intelligent shows out there and yet they do not have the capabilities to attract an audience the way this anime does. Needless to say, it uses some cheap tactics, but it gets the job done. It should not be taken seriously, and if you do, then simply be prepared to see what is one of the worst anime you have ever seen. If you can keep an open mind and are looking for a good laugh, then this is just what the doctor ordered. Come on, there are props such as holy milk that looks alarmingly like jizz in a bottle, a woman with breasts bigger than her own head, snakes that serve as underwear, the infamous acid breasts... who would even WANT to take any of this seriously? You'd just be setting yourself up for a migraine. Advice? Clear your mind of all intelligent, logical thoughts, kick back, and just watch and enjoy."

What bothers me the most is how come CR doesn't have one decent series from Media Blaster. Seriously? Queen's Blade and Girls High?! Kite is probably the best Anime they got from MB and its like a 2 or 2 and half star Anime at best.

You know what else sells? Quality Anime. CR is should try to find some from MB.

I agree Media Blasters is s great company and has some amazing titles. Yes some of them are older, but who cares! I mean for god sake they have Fist of the North Star. They probably got that super cheap and is streaming everywhere, but there is an audience for it. Kenshin is one of my all time favorites and would love to see it get some love on here.

I personaly would love if they got some great older shows like Rurouni Kenshin, LAIN, Monster and others like this. Shows that have a great story, good amount of action and lots if great drama. The reason I prefer older anime because they were not always over saturated with fan service and big boobs. It's actualy sad to say this but there Is so much crap out every year. All just mindless, poinless shows that really if never made would have never made a bit if difference. Hopefully CR will aquire some more mature anime, and no I'm not talking about henrai.

I would not suggest that since the u.k passed the dmca protection act in your country. If your ISP is caught downloading "copyrighted" material more than 3 times your ISP or you personally will be banned from gaining access to the net. Here is a link for more info.
