I got an email today from a CR user/affiliate BasouKazuma saying I was selected for a free Crunchyroll T shirt through a hand selection process by staff. He asked for my Tshirt size and shipping address if I was interested.

Is this a scam to get my shipping address or is CR actually giving away select T shirts and I should jump at the offer? Anyone else get this email?

Usually a scam would ask for more than your shipping address. BasouKazuma is a support admin here, so you could always send him a PM to confirm.

When I logged in to check my e-mail, I also had the e-mail you referred to. The e-mail address it was sent to is one I use only for CR, so that lends credibility to it.

Was supposed to be a secret gift to users but yea, it's a legitimate email. Don't need to respond if you're not comfortable sending your address.

I was excited reading it and went to respond right away when I thought of a potential scam. Glad to know it isn't a scam and really is a gift horse. *I promise not to look in its mouth next time* I'll delete this thread then.
