Our hearts go out sincerely to our friends in Japan. May they weather this crisis with a DON, and come back to us in good time.

I really hope they get everything together and become stronger due to this. I almost cried when I saw the devastation going on over there.

I would donate as well if a crunchyroll donation drive was made to help out these people effected by this horrible disaster.

For anyone who wants to donate - American Red Cross already has a site up - read the following:


American Red Cross Responds to Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami
National Headquarters

Phone: (202) 303 5551
.WASHINGTON, Friday, March 11, 2011 — The American Red Cross stands ready and willing to assist following a magnitude 8.9 earthquake in Japan and the resulting tsunami that affected other countries in the Pacific region.

The Japanese Red Cross Society has extraordinary disaster response capabilities, and has mobilized eleven teams to heavily-damaged communities to provide assessments and first aid and prepare to supply emotional support and relief. The American Red Cross is in communication through its global partners with the Pacific nations that sustained the most damage, and stands ready to provide assistance as needed. To date, the Red Cross has not received any requests for blood from the Japanese Red Cross, the Japanese government or the U.S. State Department.

With potential danger headed to the west coast of the United States, Red Cross chapters are on alert and stand ready to provide assistance as needed in their communities in coordination with local and federal response partners. Red Cross warehouses in Saipan (Northern Mariana Islands), California, Washington and Hawaii are mobilizing resources; and approximately 100 mobile feeding vehicles are on standby. Evacuation shelters are open with additional locations on standby in Oregon, Washington and California.
The Red Cross does not collect blood in Hawaii but has reached out to other blood collection agencies to offer services and is on standby to support any blood needs across the mainland as well.

The best way to contact or locate U.S. citizens living or traveling in Japan is to contact the U.S. Department of State, Office of Overseas Citizens Services, at 1-888-407-4747 or (202) 647-5225. The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) has offered to assist Japan with restoring family links.

In addition, with ongoing evacuations in the United States, the Red Cross Safe and Well website is a secure and easy-to-use online tool that helps families connect during emergencies like tsunamis. There are several easy ways to register yourself or search for a loved one on the Safe and Well website: from a computer, visit www.redcross.org, from a smartphone visit www.redcross.org/safeandwell or from any phone, call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) for help registering.

Those who want to help can go to www.redcross.org and donate to Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami. People can also text REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation to help those affected by the earthquake in Japan and tsunami throughout the Pacific.


About the American Red Cross:
The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies nearly half of the nation's blood; teaches lifesaving skills; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a charitable organization — not a government agency — and depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.

First thing I thought when I heard about the earthquake was "Damn, I hope all the mangaka's and anime studios are alright." But when I actually saw the state of Japan, watching anime and reading manga was hardly top priority. That wasn't your average earthquake :/ It managed to devastate a country that's got infrastructure specifically for earthquakes, so you can pretty much guess the enormity of it.
I send my condolences out to anyone who has lost friends or family, and wish Japan best of luck recovering.
We all know how awesome Japan is though, so hopefully they'll get back on their feet soon enough. Fighting, Japan <3


I heard it was the worst in, like, 140 years...

Is there a way to do that?

Seriously, we usually get a fund started in a month (two weeks tops) when things are starting to cool down, but can't we have a fund going within a week? We already have people ready to donate to the cause, including me.

Well the free users still get their simulcast fix for those who are wondering.

Anyway, it's no surprise, especially since this earthquake is obviously affecting more than just the manga and anime industry. That should be the thing we're least worried about. I'm more worried about the destruction this earthquake has caused.

Until programming resumes its normal schedule, let's (re-)acquaint ourselves with some of the older library of shows. Just don't watch Tokyo Magnitude 8.0. (o_O)

It would be great if CrunchyRoll establishes a relief fund. There are so many funds, though, that, in my opinion, if CR were to do so, it should be more focused than general relief. Someone mentioned donations to family of manga/anime artists. That's an idea, and it's something inline with why CR is here in the first place. But to have a general relief fund, the most effective way would be for CR to fold those funds into a larger organization, like Red Cross or Global Giving, essentially pooling all our donations together into one super-donation.

Regarding what percentages of donations actually reach those affected and in need: None unless you donate. So give whatever amount you can to any organization involved in Japan tsunami relief. However... the IFRC says: There are a number of fraudulent web sites which are using the Red Cross Red Crescent emblems to request donations for disaster relief. Please treat these web sites as suspicious. The best of human nature also brings out the worst: it's inevitable that there will be those attempting to rob donations meant for Japan.

Here are some verified resources for those wishing to assist. I've tried to locate resources that are truly international, so that everyone who wishes to do so can help. Text donations are available for US residents only, unfortunately, but anyone can donate online via the links provided:
