Good luck to you all.

I think what you meant to say was this:

Hey Americans,

We have a new competition just for our local viewers! Watch these shows to go in the draw to win some stuff from Japan. Don't worry about the costs, we have plenty of premium members from other countries who pay just as much for less than 1/4 of the site's content. Since this is a HUGE competition, the idea of someone who isn't American winning mortifies us! After all, America is our real audience, the rest of the world is just our income.



Good luck in the competition, those of you who participate. But more importantly, enjoy the related animes. Don't forget that the money to buy the lisences for you to watch them came just as much from those who aren't allowed to watch them as those who are.


Bitter much? You probably dont realize this but to actually authorize a contest world wide is actually extremely difficult and take a ton of lawyers and contracts from each individual country. They are a US based company what do you want from them? This has much less to do with CR and more of Japan and the industry being scared and not wanting to authorize it's anime. Crunchyroll is the first of it's kind. If you hate this place so much so dont bother. Seriously, they are just trying to promote these series and you have to go on about how bad it is. How ungrateful are you?

About the contest. I think this is great. I haven't seen many of these shows but I'll check them out to just get the badges. Hey I may even like what i see.


What do I want from them? How about a fair go. I get access to less than 1/4 of the content on this site, but I pay just as much for a premium membership as you do.

As for hating this place, it's not true. I used to love it. But I (and many, many others from around the world) am getting sick of getting the short end of the stick. Every few weeks a new show is announced on the front page. Almost every time I will go in there to find that it's not available in my region. I understand that multinational liscenses a difficult, complex, and expensive. This is irrelevant. We're talking about the individual customer here, and it's very simple; You and I pay the same amount of money. For that same amount of money, you get far more than I do. No matter how you look at it, it's unfair.

You're right about me being bitter. I am, very much so. This is what happens after over a year of being treated like a second rate member. The solution here is simple, but it won't happen, since it will leave Crunchyroll with less money. Reduce the costs of foreign membership, or give us more content.

Finally, you obviously don't know the meaning of ungrateful. When they advertise things I can't win by watching shows I can't watch, tell me, how the fuck am I supposed to be grateful?

I can confirm that you can get badges even if the show isn't available in your region.

I'm a UK subscriber and I've already got both the Lucky Star badges.

Technically, we can still get badges... Whether or not the prizes would be shipped to our region if we won is another question though.

What they failed to make clear is:
IT DOES NOT MATTER IF YOU CAN NOT WATCH ALL THE SHOWS
The badges are not tied to any particular show, they're all random regardless of what show you're watching. As long as you have access to at least one of the Animes in the competition's list then you can still collect badges from shows you don't hav access to. In fact, you can collect all 20 badges by simply watching a single episode again and again.
The shows are all Kadokawa shows. Aside from the UK, the region restrictions are almost the same on all of them...

actually you can get any badge from any show, so if you got access to Kore wa Zombie desu ka? or Gosick you still got a chance. I got 3 different ones from watching Gosick.




munchthis gets +1 intelligence for not jumping to conclusions and reading the original post thoroughly...
