Now for some constructive feedback....

A neat weekly short news video on anime is a great idea. It allows people with less time to actually find out about some good (possibly long running) shows like bleach, reborn, naruto, etc. It's a daunting task sometimes trying to pick up the next show you want to watch when you think you can only put a few hours into it each week. Getting the gist and a few vid-clips of something like bleach is great (really, sometimes the text descriptions just don't cut it).

Points of criticism:
Editing seems ok, but there was a *very* obvious transition after the bleach story. It rankled me a bit, I'm sure the editing will improve with time.
There was a minor (possibly major?) spoiler about the bleach storyline in the story. The event mentioned doesn't show up until about 68 or 69 eps in, and knowing that little bit that happens can ruin some of the preceding eps (there was some decent mystery who-is-doing-what and who-is-the-bad-guy stuff going on in those eps). This should be avoided, even if CR doesn't have all the preceding eps for a show yet.

Points of praise:
Girls are genuinely very cute and charismatic. I like the cosplay thing (even though some noted previously they didn't) due to the fact that it brings in some fun into the show. They also have a pretty good synergy, which is usually hard to put together right away and will only improve with time (for those skeptical, watch star trek TNG early eps vs. later ones).

This is also a good outlet for some focused bits of anime news - this allows someone to go look up the stories they're interested in to read more instead of trying to wade thru everything (there's a lot sometimes to scan).

Overall, I hope you guys are able to put out more of these shows, they may even help boost subscriptions (disclaimer: I do not work for CR).

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.


I couldn't agree more...

P.S. I think this very well may be my first post too, that's a sign of how much I disapprove of the cutesy hearts and pink stuff...

They need to add more emotion!!! They make it seem like the don't really like it manga and anime at all!!! Dressing up is nice but actors without emotions is BORING!!! Oh maybe subtitles at the bottom. My friend watches anime with me and she is deaf so subtitles would be a big help!!!!

Good enough for a pilot episode. It certainly had some rough edges that should be fixed. It did have a feeling of being put together fast and was a bit all over the place. Kwaii and shounen don't mix too well in my book and I definitely don't thinks it is appropriate for discussing the untimely passing of a highly respected director.

Still the girls are appealing, personable, and charismatic, and with more time to work on defining a unique style to represent CR with, I think the acting, scriptwriting and directing could come together in a nice package to be the image of CR.

Sorry, no thanks. Didn't do anything for me. CR already posts news on the front page... or is this the version for people who can't be bothered to read?

ANN had the news about the manga coming to CR...
