Just a question, so CR lets you get accessed on the videos your region is not available once you become a CR member?
Posted 7/1/12
in my opinion, if you love something that's worth paying for, why not... I've been watching anime for a very very long time, Crunchyroll has everything I want. Just so Crunchyroll knows, I'll be supporting them all the way!

I know people who spent over thousands over some things that I myself think that is very useless, e.g: 3,000.00 USD over some epic armor from an MMO game, I am not going to name that MMO. It's stupid when you think about it, but it's something that his/her has been longing for a very long time and passion has a lot to deal with it.

You're asking if once you become a CR member, all the videos become available to you, right? The answer is unfortunately, no. If your region is locked, it's locked whether you are a member or not.

Then there's no reason I would be paying for the membership. I can count what animes are there available for our country...
Naruto, faitytail, saki, randsell, poyo, fokltales and yurumatei dantei... It didnt even list bleach in it and I dont see any interest with those of the animes I said. *headpalm*

I personally don't think it's worth it. I only once used the free-trial so i'd get more of a discount on one of the daily deals.. xD I've only used CR to watch one anime (shuffle) and that was back in 2007 cause CR was the only site i could find that had it at the time. Other than that, i never watch anime on here. And to be honest CR's selection of anime isn't really that great either..

I think its a waste of money. That's just me, because I'm in a tight money situation, I'm pretty sure most of you are what with the GOD AWFUL economy. If not, then congrats, you don't have to worry.

Anyway, I'm okay with just watching anime regardless of ads. Its like watching TV. Just with a few commercials. I don't want to waste money just to make my profile look cool, or watch anime on my android, you know, all that fancy shmancy stuff. I could really care less. At least I get to even watch anime on this website, that's the upside of it.

Nothing sucks more than lowballers. This is expensive? Sorry it's not something freely pirated on torrents or some website.

There ARE sites that show free eps of pirated eps and fansubs. However, they are slow and riddled with pop ups and bad links.

You get what you pay for. In fact, purchasing a years subscription instead of a monthly or quarterly will save you even more. Do the math and if that's still to expensive then take a few moments to compare it to other sites that cost less but off a lot less selection.

No way is Crunchroll expensive. Look at the amount of content you get. £6 A month is nothing for the amount i watch.
Yeah you can download it for free or watch it some where else but CR is high quality. Well worth the money.

I'd spend it on clothes, makeup or my hair... to feed my narcissistic nature.

the problem is, that there are many MANY other sites that have the anime or dramas I watch for FREE.plus the quality on these other sites are pretty good too. Illegal or not, anime is not the most important part of life, well not mine... yea I guess it is pretty cheap of me to rip off the people who work to make these amazing shows, but $100 is a bit much...

ahaha it takes me a month to get a little over $100 (even though I only work twice a month), but it still is money... for university :X

Expensive? Hah! Let's step into the anime time machine, and go back 15 years...

Anime. It's very niche, found only in a few stores, in a small section in the back. Paying $25-30 for a tape with 2 episodes on it was normal. The value then was in series like Slayers, which would give us 3-4 eps for $20. Finding a complete series boxset for under $100 was not possible. (Going back to Slayers, it did have $70 boxes... for half the series.) Anime on TV was basically Sailor Moon and DBZ. Fansubs were still mostly by mail; internet fansubs were noticably lower quality than VHS, and a simple search would not find them.

Now, today. Even if you watch only 1 anime series on CR, the rate is $7 for 4 eps, or $20 for 12/13 eps, on average. (I'm aware of the yearly rate being cheaper still, but I'm following 1 series here.) A bargain re-release DVD set may match that rate. But for a newer show, not before released on DVD, those 12/13 eps are going to run you $50-60- more than twice what you'd pay to watch them here. And, for the CR membership fee, you're not limited to 1 series. Expanding even to just 3 series makes it seem like you're making out like a bandit!

So no, CR's not expensive.

Well, most anime DVD box sets out there cost a fortune, so if anything, Crunchyroll is a cheaper option.
