It seems a bit odd but when I went to check on two different series I couldn't find them in the spring anime and the links on the home page are leading a document not found notification.

Animes:
We Without Wings
(example url: http://www.crunchyroll.com/we-without-wings-ore-tachi-ni-tsubasa-wa-nai )

A Bridge To Starry Skies
(example url: http://www.crunchyroll.com/a-bridge-to-the-starry-skies-hoshizora-e-kakaru-hashi )

Both urls return a document not found notification. Shifting on the server perhaps?

At least at the current time I found both episode 1 and episode 2 of Ore-tachi were still there. Yet, when I clicked the "bread crumb" to go back to the main page, I got the same document not found message. Likewise, the same appears to be true for A Bridge to the Starry Skies.

That said, I do not automatically take the presence of the episodes as a "no worries" indicator, as I have seen similar occurrences when CR has had to remove a series because the contract expired; sometimes they only partially eliminated it, but left the videos for some time. The current absence of both series from both the Spring 2011 lineup page and the alphabetical list add suspicion.

In any event, I expect if this is a mistake it will be corrected soon, as a new episode of Ore-tachi is due for members in about 12 hours. Likewise, if there is actually a reason for it, CR will have to make an announcement.

You may want to post about this in the Help/Support/Feedback forum. The next episode of Ore-tachi is still supposed to go up in about an hour. If that goes up as scheduled, I would say this is a problem that needs to be corrected.

EDIT: The topic has now been moved to the Help/Support/Feedback forum.

Hoshizora appears to be working normally now, for me at least, but the links to ore-tachi are giving the "Not Found" error still.

Also, both shows are on the Spring line-up page. http://www.crunchyroll.com/lineup

I still received a "not found" error for the main page of Hoshizora. I also noted their is message in the Help/Support/Feedback forum confirming these have also disappeared from the Roku channel.

The Spring 2011 page we were referring to is this one.

I checked and got the same thing as well, yet, by accessing We, Without Wings episode 3 from the Crunchyroll front/main page, I could also access episodes 1 and 2 from there. So it would appear that the episodes do exist here on Crunchyroll, but for some reason the normal pages that link to them do not.

It has now been reported the shows are no longer available via both the Roku and Android apps. I suspect the same is true of the iOS app as well.

Could a support mod pop in and give us a heads up on what is going down? I'm a fan of both of these series so I would like to know if they're being pulled from the site. A heads up would be nice as dead links are just bad web site etiquette.

EDIT: Not trying to be rude, I just need to know if I need to put on a search for another site to catch these two shows.

Unfortunately, I am expecting nothing will be done about this until at least Monday.

I have noticed often that for some technical issues, it requires a member of the regular staff that only work weekdays. Normally at least one of the mods would have responded by now, but with Sakura-con 2011 going on this weekend, perhaps they are otherwise occupied. I think the last post I saw from BasouKazuma was a couple of days ago.

At least computer users can access the videos directly (see my second post in this thread for links; accessing any one will give you working links to the other episodes), but I expect app users are completely SOL until CR fixes the main problem.
