I'm looking forward to seeing which anime they pick up for Summer season, but its starting to get kinda close and without any announcements yet, I'm getting worried

I can't recall but it's normally about one week to two weeks prior to the series's broadcast.

lol how would you do that ehhh??? the shows they get are what the companies that produce them give them so they take all they can. so yeah thats not how it works maybe you should call all those companies up in japan and ask if they could do a poll themselves but i think the better route is the fact that in a few years crunchyroll will be so big they will have to post their shows here if they want some really good $$$

we or i pay to watch stuff here, If i want to see a certian show my voice has a right to be heard. They should do polls that premium users can vote to see what will be added here. Ano Hana and A-channel where left in the dust but I think there still should have been choice to vote on them so people can at least have their say out. That's all I am asking for.

Hasn't Crunchy announced shows on the day of airing or a few days after a show airs before? Either way, Crunchy should be having some type of announcement fairly soon.

but what i'm saying is thats impossible cause its companies giving them the animes the companies choose to put it on here or not. crunchyroll posts everything they get offered its up to the companies if they want it on here. a poll would just lessin the amount that we get

I don't the idea of users voting for all of the shows. Considering the amount of Crunchyroll users, most of them are the Big 3 fans, so they would vote for the action series. I like how CrunchyRoll has a variety when getting simulcasts, so I think the current method is great. Having the users vote for series may not always work out because of the license, but if we could vote for a few series, then I'm fine with that. There actually is a thread for recommending series CrunchyRoll should get, but I don't know how well that thread works out.

While I love the idea of voting, the problem is that it'll seriously overwhelm non-mainstream anime in the polls. Our options are limited due to licensing restrictions and what the CR partners can contribute. The best way to get rights to broadcast is to get it early as possible (this is the strategy that CR currently using.)

The season effectively starts on July 1, so I do not expect any announcements until next week. We might get the "We'll begin announcing simulcasts on <fill in the date>" announcement later this week, but I honestly don't expect even that until next week.

What is interesting is that thus far, there have been no leaks or site hints, as with the past couple of seasons, which either means CR is getting better with keeping secrets, or they do not have the signed contracts in hand as of yet (which would still be no reason to panic).

Even if they did, it would be more of a "feel good" measure than anything else. Even if there was an overwhelming vote for a specific show, if the company either has ties or contractual obligations with another company, or simply is opposed to streaming, there would be little CR could do. In the latter instance, CR could try throwing bucketloads of cash at the company to sway them, but I doubt CR could afford the amounts necessary to accomplish that task.

I remember one of the Crunchy devs was on Reddit a week ago, and he mentioned that they bid for every single show the last few seasons, but a good amount of companies just don't do the online streaming thing or their price is out of Crunchys range
