First of all, sorry for my poor grammar on my post, I'd just completed a 13 hour bus trip before getting home (and my keyboard has seen better days)

I want to explicitly point out that I understand the difficulties with obtaining a licence, and I have every hope this will only be a temporary problem. It is in no way a protest, it's a financial decision that I'm not actually happy about making. I remain grateful to the CR team for bringing anime into my home with such choice and value. I will continue to support CR via watching shows with ads, and will continue to recommend it to friends.

When I'm given a reason to pay, I will be, believe me. The two new shows look a bit cutesy/moe and I'm more action/adventure/dark/comedy. My fave animes are cowboy bebop, DBZ, planetes, deathnote and azumanga diaoh, so that should tell you where I'm coming from.

CR is still amazing:- I recall being a fan in the 90's, paying probably twice the cost of a monthly subscription to get an hour or less of anime at times, then take into account inflation as well. We've got it good, and when it's better, I'll be forking out.

I've still got a couple of weeks on my subscription, so I'm waiting to see what happens and like I say, I'll still be around via the free version too. I still need my fix

......actually Kamisama Dolls looks interesting

I'm in the same boat as most. and being in New Zealand (which I am) is even worse as we are almost not even on the radar like the UK is when it comes to obtaining licences.

Thats why I pay my sub for CR, look at there line up of shows (like Blue Exorcist etc) and then download them from elsewhere LOL

I think I'm gonna cancel my paid membership till/unless we get some of this new stuff in the uk. As soon as there' some new season stuff, I'll be back to paying, I promise, but for now I just can't justify paying for only new two shows that don't interest me.


Understandable. :)


quick question: is it possible that these may be added for UK in the near future or is it a done deal that we can't have them? If there's good hope, I'd be more than happy to stick around

Sigh... Here's my TL;DR for all people who whine about things like this...


I WANNA SEE THAT TOO THAT SO UNFAIR CR BIASED TO USASUCKSMONKEYFAWK!!!



Why must people hate on CR for things that are obviously beyond their control? You can use all the "competitive" shmat you want and it won't amount to anything because that is precisely what CR is trying to be - competitive.

Either prove your point and find a different site similar to CR or migrate to the USA if you want to watch the region-locked content that bad. Seriously, it was never as easy in the past, do you think it'd be any easier now? (correction... now that CR is LEGAL?)


Ooooooooh....

They don't. Most people complain about region restrictions because they love Crunchyroll.

I can't comment on that.. this is more like something BasouKazuma would answer or perhaps even Kippu.

Can we "work" for CR outside of the US? Honestly, I understand corporate disclosure, but the alienation must be tough, huh?

Hell yeah, it's tough. At least before, we used to get change logs or change lists to keep us somewhat updated on the site to disseminate correct information to users... we get nothing new now. Luckily most of the questions on here are rehash or a variation of questions asked before.
