OK I Don't usually comment as most things usually make sense but couple things stick out that pretty much kill this Pilot video for me.

As stated above "Two Nice Girls" but the whole cutesy hearts and pink frills are just way to preteen girl for someone like myself. The Idea of having a Video Podcast type news show to Highlight CR content is a nice touch. However I believe it needs to be a bit more gender neutral if you want it seriously to be viewed by the CR community as a whole.

That being said this podcast is aimed at presenting Otaku News and the Anime shows CR is currently streaming, it may just be me but wouldn't it make sense to have this available to those with the Premium Anime Memberships in the higher resolutions. Kind of a slap in the face when you pay for the Premium Anime Membership and when a video comes up highlighting the content your paying for your presented with a you have to pay extra to see this cause its live action.

Well this is just my 2 cents on it, I'll watch the next couple releases to see if it gets better but don't see myself logging in to see them as I would my weekly anime fix.

they seem nice, but how they talk sounds like they're nervous and reading off a script.

tell me this is a joke....its a joke...right?
Posted 9/7/10 , edited 9/7/10
I have to say I'm watching it at the moment, and at times they seem as if they feel a little...restricted, and a bit uncomfortable. Also, whilst the idea is nice, and would possibly be great as an iTunes podcast to promote CR, I agree that it does need to be more gender neutral and the largely femine nature ay turn some viewers off. Another thing that could cause disappointment for some viewers is the fact that the majority of series covered aren't viewable on CR outside of the US, in the pilot at least. However, this is a very nice way of updating us and it will be perfect if you take the feedback from us in mind. =D
Also, manga on crunchyroll? YAAAAY!
