As many others have stated, I don't want to switch my Watchlist items over to My Queue yet since it removes the number of episodes I've actually seen. While it may have saved it in my history, I want to actually see what number I have. The play button is great but it's a disappointment to press play and it goes to a video that isn't even up on the site yet or even back to ep. 1.

I do like the easy order editing and the ability to play the newest episode of a given show. I just wish I had the option to pick which to watch or if the newest one is even released yet.

Plus, I really do like using the Watchlist for shows not on CR. I wish CR had the rights to almost all the shows but since it doesn't, isn't it a good idea to have the staff tracking statistics on how many users have added those other shows to their watchlists? Doesn't it give the staff even a little idea of what studios they should negotiate with, etc.

I switched over one show to test the new system from my older list and won't be switching anymore until I can see how many episodes I've actually watched and knowing I can add shows not just on CR. If I'm forced I'll do it right before September with the current system but I'll switch over to using Myanimelist.com for future list saving.

Thanks for the much needed update CR and hope you can add the edits you've mentioned are so helpful to know as you improve this new feature.

I think the Queue is a good idea, but I'm not sure if it's more useful than a favorites + watchlist.

I liked the feature of the watchlist where it shows what episode you're on + status of your viewing. I hope this feature can somehow be integrated to the Queue if it's staying. It is more beneficial to allow us to resume from the episode we left off on and not need to start from the beginning (b/c for me... it goes back to Ep 1). And it's a good reminder for those of us who are forgetful =D

I do like to have a Favorites list where you can add all shows/artists/groups and keep a running list separate from what you're watching. I hope favorites can be kept.

We will bring My Queue to device apps as well. The first will be Roku.

How about getting the iOS apps bug free instead? I could care less about a new feature when existing ones are ghetto hacked...

While I've been wanting a queue for quite a while, this implementation doesn't meet my needs any more than the favorites/watchlist did. In order for a queue to be useful for me it'd need to have some sort of visual indication that a series has unwatched/newly released episodes that I haven't yet watched. Otherwise I'm still left opening every series I follow to see which have had new episodes released since my last site visit.

Ideally, the queue would list your most recently viewed episode, the total number of episodes, and include some sort of unwached/new identifier. For instance, my queue might look like:

* Natsume Yujincho 16/31 ***** Play Remove
My Ordinary Life 19/19 ***** Play Remove

Any 'coming soon' episodes should not count for new/unwatched indicator nor for total episode number.

i kinda hate the queue...not sure why they would not just show the episode # your on...that was my favorite part of the watch list...i also had a since of accomplishment when i look at it

The queue is fine but this needs to show the "episodes watched #/#" feature like the wachlist do.

Defnitely need to incorporate "plan to watch" or "finished" watching a show, and what episode I'm on, into the Queue BEFORE September. Otherwise, your site is no more useful to me than, say HULU or ANN...

We need some kind of area or something to keep track of shows watched PLEASE!



Multiple comments have mentioned need the ability to track shows watched. Help us understand - doesn't Viewing History page serve that purpose? If you click on the View full history link on top of My Queue page, it takes you to the existing View History page. More feedback is appreciated.


I don't need my entire viewing history - I just need to know what episode I was up to. And I may decide to stop watching a show for a bit, then pick it up quite a bit later. I don't want to have to scroll through every episode of everything I ever watched in the mean time.

The image serves as a good reminder for what older shows in the list may be.

Personally I don't care for seeing how other people rated a show once I've started watching it (not that ratings are really useful at all - esp. those on this site, IMO, since they're almost always 4.5 or 5).

The queue fails to improve on the watchlist - it still doesn't show when new episodes of ongoing series are available (which was about the only functionality I felt was missing really).

The UI is unintuitive - There's no indication that the "Play" button does anything other than start at episode 1 of the series.
