The obvious best features of CR are the great video player (best on the net), and of course the simulcasts.

The only thing I would like to see is more transparency with upcoming shows. Obviously there are still concerns about backing out of deals and the official announcing of titles, but users should still be given a rough idea of whats coming and deals that are in progress, like CR did with bleach.

Having gone with an anime drought for a few years because I couldn't afford the DVD's, it hit me one day to find some streaming anime on the net, something I could pay for and be happy with. After a few I was either unsure of the quality I would get even if I paid, I ran across CR randomly on from a reply post on a yahoo forum. CR may not be perfect, but I do believe it's the best on the net, and the one thing I'm confident in, it will continue to get better! Thanks to those who make this site what it is and what it will be.

I begith the, please! Put subs for the songs. I'm the kind of guy who judge's music for the beat AND lyrics. Other than that CR is prodigious! Just started my membership and first witnessed the awesomeness of the 720p broadcasting with the last episode of Durarara. Nice. Real Nice. In fact, it reminded me of the expression my Pre-Cal teacher made when he told us about playing God of war on his new 54 inch HD TV from a 70-ish analog behemoth 24 inch.

I don't think that is very fair. Crunchyroll streams far more anime outside the US than the official channels on YouTube, and Hulu is completely blocked outside the US. I bet more than 80% of simulcasts are available in North and South America and the Caribbean, Australia and New Zealand, the UK, Ireland and the Netherlands, and the Nordic countries (Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland).

Obviously that is not a visible improvement to people living in Southeast Asia, Southern Europe, Central Europe, Eastern Europe or the Middle East ... but saying "its only for the US" like its Hulu, I don't think its fair. It is a big step forward from even June 2009.

I hope CR keeps improving - I don't want CR to get stuck. But I think that progress has been made.

I've got access to all the titles, since I live in the US. But I watch Durarara, which is finished, Giant Killing, catching up on Blassreiter in the back catalog, and watching House of Five Leaves and the original Soul Society arc of Bleach at Hulu.

So if only 3/5 of my streaming anime comes from CR should I get a 40% discount?

I think the way it works is everyone looks at what is available to them and decide if its worth it to them. For one person, the Naruto Shippuden simulcast may be all they want and everything else is gravy. For someone else, its not worth it if there is no Rainbow and Bridge. And with the two week free trial, people have a chance to try for themselves and see whether what is available is good enough for them.

Unlike the other sites, Crunchyroll has been working on it and expanding the number of countries getting anime - a year ago, Brazil and Chile and the UK were getting blocked over half the time, now they have access to a majority of the content.

The rights owner seems to do that when the rights are included - Aoi Hana did, Sasameiki Koto did. Blassreiter does, but the rights were probably already paid for to put it on DVD, so it would not be an extra cost.

A lot of times the right to do it is extra (every song has three different copyrights attached - lyric, tune, and performance and the production committee might only buy performance rights when they get the OP or ED song), but if its an extra cost per view that the ads cannot cover, I think it would be worth it to have it for premium members at least.

Not worth it. CR premium is a waste of a good $7-$8 (in my opinion). There are plenty of sites that are legit (or not :happy:) and show a ton more anime, plus they exclude all of the annoying commercials and adds (let's face it, when you don't have the 7$-$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.

hey Crunchyroll, ads with video and loud obnoxious sound are not acceptable on the front page especially for paying members. please don't do that again.

Im not agreeing with you.
Lets take something like cable tv or even satelite channels,
If i pay for a packet of services that include Sky tv, CBS news, Discovery, Disney channel, etc , etc
i expect to be able to see all those channels, if i dont watch the channels its because i choose to do so, its my choice but im still paying for it which means i can see it if i want to.
Funnely enough most of the shows ive mentioned now i can see withouth fearing that the content is blocked due to region licencing even though its produced in USA, because i pay for that services.

Even more silly is the claim that the companys have to get rigtshs to broadcast that particular show in that or that contry.
I mean its internett, who have put licencing borders whithin the internet? it dosnt exist, unless they resently suddenly decided to include that, and if it does excist, why can i then watch some stuff streamed which i shoudnt be able to see in theory?
For instance streamed cbs news....
