I definitely think I get my money's worth and some out of my membership. The CR app is unfortunately disappointing to me though. The likelihood of me being in the mood to watch anime, not near a computer, but otherwise having wifi access is basically never. I can't blame CR for Apple's restrictive streaming video options though. Either way, a damn fine site but it would be a good day to say the least if I could simply snatch CR over 3G.

I enjoy coming here and watching really good quality anime. I'm not really into dramas, but it has most of the animes I watch in high quality. No fuzziness like the other sites.

The random event an ad video freezes my video every once in a while aside, I think CR is great. Not only does it feel good to watch anime from a legit source but I can see it in good quality instead of the compressed crap other sites have.. CR also is nicely organized, making it easy to find what you want. I'd love to see CR get it's hands on more new and airing anime, though.

That is one major rip-off which none of thos reviws state.

I will aknowledge CR, when they get me all the tiles I PAID for.
Heck even in legal terms I can sue, for not giving me everything I am paying for.
Even if they do not have rights, they should cearly state in the premium page that some Anime Memberships will not have all titles, since they live outside the region license.

Which then leads to anothe matter, why should we who don't get all titles, pay as much as those who get all titles?

They should state that which titles will apply to me. Before I pay and then find out.

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?

Currently, when I go to the premium membership page ( http://www.crunchyroll.com/premium_comparison ), this is one of the three items that appears at the bottom:

2. Geographical restrictions apply on a per-title basis. Crunchyroll attempts to get worldwide licenses, but licenses are frequently granted on a per-country basis. Check the Anime and Drama selections to see the selection (these pages are filtered for your region). Several titles are offered exclusively for Premium Members, such as the original Naruto series and Fairy Tale.

A "2" notation appears beside each items in the "Video Selection" row, referring to this text at the bottom of the page. The "View list" link in that same row is also supposed to show only those titles available for your region.

That said, I agree there should be a lower rate if you do not have access to all videos, or at least an explanation of why that cannot be done.

I joined with a premium account in Jan of 09 and have been on the site at least every few days since. The video quality is great (by far the best for a streaming service) and I like how its a legal outlet that routes proceeds back to the creators. My only gripe is with the communication, especially when it comes time for a new season of anime. It seemed like during 09 for a few weeks leading up to the start of a new season there would be announcements about new anime coming and the whole lineup page with dates about how they were going to be added. I remember many threads started speculating which series was gonna be added because it was supposed to premiere on that day in Japan. Then we had Winter of 10 and the whole 50% of new anime thing kinda just disappeared. 4 new series were added, and the dates on which there were going to be added were pushed back three or four times, I don't even think the announcements were made until after the start of the season, and then there was just a "?" with TBD under it (to be determined I guess) listed as the final show to be added. I cannot put into words how frustrated I became as a week went by, then 2, then 4, and more before Giant Killing was added. Granted I like the show a lot and I'm glad its here, I just was frustrated we didn't get a "we're working on it, having licensing issues" or anything like that just that "TBD" for so long with no word. Other than that CR is great, and I'd even pay more if they added a significantly larger catalog of anime's that fell by the wayside and never got licensed in R1 (I figure there would be a big market for that and the licenses shouldn't be as expensive as popular new titles right?

I give you 3 out of 5 stars. The content is awesome but you need an android app. Yea I can watch on my android using flash BUT it is not optimised for my phone. I would pay for an app on the market if you would just release one.

5 out of 5 stars if you give us an app to use on the android phones.

I've been a member for quite some time. I've seen it go up and down and right now its pretty good. I don't like the video player, can't scroll through the episode very easy, has to reload every time you click on the bar which sucks time waster. Besides that Crunchyroll has a great amount of shows Anime/Dramas which I like.
Also I would like it if my star didn't half disappear in the forums and just go beneath my name like it used to when the star was first introduced.
If Crunchyroll doesn't change that oh well, Crunchyroll is still doing great.
Keep up the good work CR Staff

I really like crunchyroll. I just wish there was a way to do the surveys for CR bucks without the personal info.
