Whats the purpose of paying for this site if I cant watch these animes when they first come out? Crunchyroll is suppose to be the site that comes out with most of everything first before a couple of other websites( Im assuming). So if the premium members have wait for anime to come out later than expected, than that means that the non members will be waiting forever too, like another week, right?

I have been with crunchyroll since they used to be a free site and I have never seen it sink so low in delays. Im sorry that is just the way I feel, especially when you put money into it.

So Far i Have no complaints about paying for this.. I doubt crunchy is the only one to blame about the delays. Patience

I don't mind at all, I only became a premium member to watch Gintama. Didn't even know about the episodes coming out earlier thing til I'd become one.

Waist, huh? Yeah... I'm sooo taking you seriously.

Unless I didn't get the memo, CR is STILL a free streaming service - unless you subscribe to the membership, which simply allows you to have less advertisements and gain access to content earlier than everyone else. Most of the releases are simulcasts - otherwise, they're pretty close to the actual release date in Japan, so I don't see what you're yapping about. I hope you're not forgetting the fact that the videos on the site are streamed ON DEMAND.

You must haven't read the memo, I am a premium member thank you very much. I have every right to say what I want and what I feel, especially when its not free!

You didn't get my point. The memo says that YOU DON'T NEED TO BE A MEMBER to watch content on this site. I distinctly pointed out that being a member simply has PERKS. Regardless, if people are willing to wait, they can watch the content, regardless.

In addition, your being a member has nothing to do with your right to say what you want and feel. Using that argument, I can pretty much do the same. Still, you are, in fact, free to share you discontentment, but I'm here to point out that your comments had several contradictions in them. You had all the choice in the world to be a member, and yet you're complaining about paying? That sounds like one twisted mess you got yourself into. Why did you pay in the first place? Did you not try the trial membership first to see if you liked it?

If it weren't for that, I'd dismiss you as another disgruntled user, but quite frankly your complaints perplex me.

Finished? I am. Unlike you I don't argue with others on forums, I say what I feel and that's that. So this will be the last time you will get a response from me.

Oh and I didn't even bother to read what you just wrote, too much of a hassle

^ You were calling for an argument. Enjoy your "waisted" money. You're the one complaining in the first place, after all.

For the four Kadokawa simulcasts this season (A Dark Rabbit has Seven Lives, R-15, The Mystic Archives of Dantalian, and Twin Angel: Twinkle Paradise ), I expect Crunchyroll's only options were accept these simulcasts a week late (due to NicoNico have a first week exclusive), or not get them at all.

You may ask yourself why NicoNico has that one week exclusive. Here is a hint: Kadokawa owns part of the parent company of NicoNico, and that company owns part of Kadokawa.

FYI, for the four Kadokawa simulcasts only, premium and free members get them at the same time. I expect CR rightly thought that making free members wait two weeks would have been too much. As a premium member myself, I agree.


The only other long delay I am aware of in the new simulcasts for Summer 2011 is Sacred Seven. Given that this is obtained from Bandai, you would have to ask them about the reason for the delay. As they also make this available on Hulu, if Crunchyroll had insisted on having it available sooner for premium members, they could have simply said no.

yahiko2003 is the kind of user that is so frustrating to meet on forums. Any criticism and they'll leave.

Actually this answer her question and mine. Since i was about to ask. Crunchyroll should explain these things on the frontpage in order to avoid confusions.

Not everyone keeps up with Japanese television schedules, so that would likely cause even more people to question the delay.

Depends, when you see some simulcasts being available on the net a whole week before being supposed to be released it tend to be confusing. I though they were fake but they're legit. Regarding people being confused:

Just see the comments.
