Iv always wondered, why aren't there 720p versions of the older shows that are licensed? It's not impossible to get them in that quality, in fact most of are re-released as blu-rays, or is that the only way they can be licensed without braking the companies bank?

Nice on getting Lucky Star, love this series... the second one... I read some viewer comments elsewhere... prob not going to watch it.

It's nice to have lucky star legally though... since a CR subscription is about as much as this broke college student can afford for anime at the time... maybe one day when I'm rich I'll buy the DVD's for this >.> lol.

I'd also like to state how happy I am that CR pretty much only posts things with the JP audio and EN subtitles... long ago I was a dub fan, but soon came to believe that Japanese animation should be watched in well... Japanese... I don't like anime networks site for example since there are a few titles I want to see there and they dubbed over only. So even though Lucky Star has an EN dub available you only posted the subbed version... <3 CR... and yeah that does sound sarcastic but it isn't and I'm too lazy to revise it to make it sound serious business.

Sorry for double post but...

It doesn't appear that Bandai, most likely the company CR licensed from, ever released a blu ray version of lucky star, and looking at the yellow subtitles, typical to DVD releases, this is just a straight rip from the Bandai R1 dvds which are 480. I also didn't even find JP releases of Lucky Star on blu ray... which would probably involve further licensing.

So I imagine that either for some of these older shows that blu ray versions don't exist or would involve licensing a video source from another company while licensing the right to the subs and stream from the US company and it would as you said "break the bank". For older catalog shows like hayate and lucky star I would figure it all depends on what the US company has to offer, and what they actually want to give over to CR to stream.

So yeah I'm sure 720+ can be found for some older shows... but some are upscales, some are true HD, and it all depends on who owns and if you could even strike a deal with them, or if it would even be worth the time and money. Those are just my theories.

Nice. Both series are available here. Thanks Cruncyroll.

But really, you should list the countries where they are available. It's really annoying to get hyped up about a new series and then when you try to watch it you get the "not available in your region" message. Be more friendly to your international customers.

How about releasing more of the good shows to the UK ¬.¬

I don't really see the point in getting anything legibly in the UK when they show bugger all on the TV, alongside barely selling anything to do with anime in the first place. I'll just have to keep to my torrenting..
