I would really love to have all the anime that Crunchyroll offers in an uncensored format that only 18+ people could subscribe to, and I would gladly pay extra for that service if needed.

I feel like I am missing out on the story when I view censored shows and I would like the full experience.

I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT MORE OR EXTREME NUDITY. Just uncensored, raw anime, streamed without watering it down.

Please seriously consider this question. I want to see other people's opinion on the subject.

..hmm well lets see that would be hard to do in fact that most are from dvd's and blurays from japan. I still download fan-subs for some series and Cr isn't really censoring anything what soever but I do see your point. It's a matter of working out a deal with DVD companies in Japan which is a-lot more harder than a t.v. broadcasting station. Now there are some uncut anime like kankon, queens blade, ikkitousen, and others but those where deals with distributors here in the states. The same goes for lucky star, code geass, and hayate season hence the region resection on other countries.

Honestly yes I would love to see this happen so i can cut down on my illegal activity, I really would but this is a matter of money vs fans. Are you are anyone else willing to pay more per month for CR if they did do this to obtain uncut titles? That's all I really have to say sorry if some of you don't understand.

No, there wouldn't really be any point to it in my opinion. The versions streamed are basically the same as the ones broadcast on tv in Japan, it's not like they add censoring to the streams we get.
It's simpler to just buy the DVD/BDs to get the uncensored version if you want.

No, because part of the price paid would be the ability to simulcast. What we are getting now is just as it was broadcast in TV in Japan, complete with commercial breaks for the free users! If we wanted the "uncensored" version, we'd have to wait for the animation studio to finish doing the TV run, then go back and touch things up for the DVD release, then we'd have to get the materials here set up for streaming. It is a known fact that some TV series, due to the hectic schedule, are rushed on the animation to meet the weekly deadlines, which is cleaned up for the DVD release. I think I'd rather have it as it airs, thanks. (Especially since not every series sees any changes...)
