Wow dude, I was seriously JUST whining to myself that it's been a while since there's been any refinement to the Crunchyroll "service". The timing of my thought and seeing this is more than just coincidence. I guess the timing was simply well matched for neededing something new.


I'll give this a try. However I'm not enthusiastic about the idea, as I'm a very anti-spoiler guy, and this sounds like a risk to that.

A suggestion I immediately have that I think would do wonders for this: for this lounge mode, run it in multiple distinct rooms/"sessions" starting every 10 or 15 minutes. The idea would be to have a room full of viewers watching the episode at a synchronized rate, so that discussion is purely "in the moment", and there will be no people "ahead" to spoil the current episode. On-demand simulcasts will of course remain unaffected.

Cool idea but I will probably never use it. I always watch in fullscreen.

I agree with TerraGamerX about potential spoilers. It'll be great to have separate sessions every 10-15 mins. It'll be really cool if the video would start when your friends join the room.

Wouldn't there be a major problem with spoilers considering people would be starting the show at different times?

Sounds really good but as everyone here mostly said that they watch fullscreen so that's a problem. Also I mostly watch anime on my IPod Touch :/ so I wouldn't be using the chat much.

Good news for trolls!

But, crunchylabs? You need to be more creative than just copying hulu.

A little thing i noticed.

It is using the American keyboard layout for symbols, but can write letters like danish "æ ø å"
not sure if it is something to actually worry about, but now it's been said.
