Ok I do like this site but there are some issues. Even with my paid service the 720p is to choppy and it gets worse with the higher rated series we have here. I thought it was my rig or my internet provider but I don't have the same issues with any of the other sites I stream from with the same rez. Also would it hurt to add some older series to the mix. I know we all come for the new stuff but some time it is good to go back and see some classics. I know there are some lic. issues involved but with as many people that pay a monthly sub. and visit on a regular cycle should be enough to warrant an expansion of the library. Oh well just a thought. See ya!!

I think crunchyroll doing fine(with anime + drama) but I hope crunchyroll can get back the music section; in the past i usually went directly to the music most of the time.

Not worth it. CR premium is a waste of a good $7-$8 (in my opinion). There are plenty of sites that are legit and show a ton more anime, plus they exclude all of the annoying commercials and adds (let's face it, when you don't have the 7$-$8 for the premium, it takes FOREVER to get through an anime-not to mention the commercials ruin the anime by ruining the mood). When it comes to a person's profile page, paying money just to add a playlist is rediculous. CR needs to offer just a little bit more before I would be willing to pay (or take a REDICULOUS amount of surveys) for a membership (not enough anime to view anyway). Don't get me wrong- Crunchy Roll is, however, a good site to learn about new anime and meet new people with the same interests (CR isn't bad, give it a try, but it may not be a site worth spening money on-personal opinion). Also, some of the anime on CR is waaaaaay beyond PG13 (close to soft Hentai). Might want to beware of certain anime series.


The sites you are referring to are most likely not legit since Crunchyroll and FUNimation's Video Portal are the 2 sites that legally provide the most Anime videos on the net. You should refer to this thread for a more complete list of legit Anime streaming sites.
http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-535224/legal-anime-streaming-and-download-sites/

Any legit streaming site will have advertisements during the video, unless you pay.

What they have done is this:
"EXAMPLE:"
Welcome to CR ice-cream store.
Would you like to get our premium offer? We give 2 scoops of ice-cream every time you order.
Then I get the premium offer, but then they say: Oh wait, you are black you can only have 1 scoop of ice-cream.
But you still have to pay the same amount as the other non-blacks.

See my point?


This isn't a race issue, it's just about what we have countries we have the right to distribute a show in. When you initially signed up, things may not have been as clear but the sign up pages have been completely re-done since then and have progressively been getting more clear. Information about Region Restrictions seems to be clear enough now since I usually don't get any emails asking why there are region restrictions. The Free Trial page is going to be changed again though, so I'll see if it can be made to be even more clear.

We can't offer a discounted price for people in regions with a limited lineup since a system like that is complicated and most likely would be abused.


So basically what you are saying is, we don't care, because it is too complicated, so we will just leave it at that, so people still pay us money and we don't give them all the titles, like the US has.

Let's look at this from (what I see as) the other side. Let's say that you lived in the US, so you had access to all the shows and paid the full rates and people where you live paid less. Then, all of a sudden, these people were able to get all the shows licensed in that area, so they suddenly have access to them all. Should Crunchyroll be able to raise the rates back up to the normal price for these people? Yeah, definitely. But, then what about the people who paid a lower yearly subscription rate? Do they just get to luck out and pay less for the year? I think that seems a bit unfair. There are other issues too, and personally I see this idea as being not feasible. I see the merit, and I see why you would want it. I see that it is unfair that you pay the same and get less. But, the implementation of it seems too complicated to me.

I was disappointed with the lack of Dattebayo subs on CR, but I can't honestly say that Viz doesn't do their job well. My only piece of feedback would be to suggest an Android app for CR; like the app available for the iPhone.

I like this site, and I never had any problem watching a single anime that's available. It will be even better if you guys expand your anime collection from the old school anime's to the new ones. but other than that, it's the best quality ever :D!!! Thank you CR~

As a relatively new member, I sickenly read 99.9% of the posts. Most of the negative posts are not constructive, just a bunch of crying. I do agree with these two tidbits from kudaikun. Don't tone down the language or nudity, if your offended change your settings. Please fix the player (I think nearly everyone agrees with this). And finally I am amazed at anyone who could complain about such a low rate for premium content, seriously people, I spent 5 bucks renting a crappy movie from a movie rental chain that made my eyes bleed, 7 bucks for sweet anime? Hell yeah! Good job CR staff, this site has apparently come a long way, and I see the awesome potential which will only come from paying members. Thanks.

I LOVE this site, the price is excellent for the amount of anime you get to watch, and even the free members get some good stuff too, i LOVE the anime[most of it anyways] and im not sure how i feel about the dramas. Overall, 4.5 out of 5 [cuz it was awesomer when everything was free way back in the day]
