I went into the music section of Crunchyroll and it was only videos, more over, most of the videos I watched were only short clips and not the entire song. I think crunchyroll should make a mp3 download section for the OST of our favorite anime songs and bands. They could allow subscribers either free downloads or a limited number of downloads for free and give a discount afterwords. Then charge full price to non-subscribers. I think this would help not only crunchyroll but also fans who would like to buy the OST of their favorite anime without having to pay the outrageous import prices (anywhere from $30 - $100+ USD) for CD's.

no way sister, honestly PAYING for an MP3 should be illegal. compared to a real non compressed version of the song mp3 is really truly horrible. if we're paying i think it should be for FLAC/apple lossless only. You may think i'm a luny audiophile who's standards are too high. but the ammount of information on an Mp3 is not even a full 5th of a real full version of the song AT BEST. So i hope that sort of explains how much crappier an mp3 file is compared to a real one. the sound difference is apparent to even an untrained ear. it's just that people have been listening to mp3s for so lonng they donn't remember what real full cd quality sounds like. mp3s are good for ann ipod with limmited space, but to BUY mp3s as they are without havinng the full version is terrible.

I LOVE THE IDEA though if it's done with a higher quality audio file. because there are too manny anime theme songs that are great that i'd love to have an easier channel of acquiring.

I was only making a suggestion about making anime OSTs more easily available and using mp3 as an example not trying to undermine the quality of the music. They could charge for the high quality audio files for people who hold music at a higher standard.

i said in my first post, i totally love the idea, i even put it i capitals. its just i feel like a lot of people are getting robbed buying mp3 format songs and they aren't really aware. i think the idea of making OST for animes more available via crunchy is an amazing idea!

I meant after they obtained the rights to house the downloads legally, just like they do with anime.
