The Recorder and Randsell episodes and Moritasan wa Mukuchi episodes. Also Poyopoyo At three minutes long, I'm curious as to how Japanese television schedules these.

You're answering out of your ass as usual...

Dictionary.com describes an episode as the following:

....

Notice how it doesn't mention a thing about time, meaning time itself is irrelevant. :/


Note: Some long text omitted. Ad Hominum arguments are not valid. However, I mostly agree with your conclusion about time being irrelevant. However, it is slightly relevant. Once someone a video is around 30 seconds or less, it becomes very hard to consider that to be an episode. Some clips are longer than some episodes, though.

adblock is not illegal your not stealing anything from the company by blocking there ads also i sometimes do disable it for crunchyroll because i like them around and that's where most of there money comes from. also if the only reason you buy the membership is for no ads then your not the smartest cookie in the box sorry to say.


Is membership worth paying for just to avoid ads? It depends on your priorities, and isn't necessarily stupid. It's not the absolutely only reason I pay for a membership, but I tell ya, when you're on a binge and watching a whole bunch of episodes all in a row, the repetition of the same ads over and over gets pretty irritating, and I think throwing money at the problem is a reasonable action. (Living with the ads is also reasonable if you don't have or don't want to spend the money; I don't have an opinion about using an ad blocker.)


saying someone is stupid for paying to get rid of ads was bad on my part and I apologize. But if you could use a free app that is legal other then paying just to get rid of ads seems like a better option in my opinion. paying 8 bucks a month just to not get ads is kinda crazy but i was a premium member for I think 5 months when I had the money because I really wanted to support crunchyroll because they are helping the change for a better media service but now that I don't I'm not going to sit through ads if I could help it. and hey its really not my place to tell you where to throw your money BUT I do think that there is a cheaper better way to get rid of ads then paying for it.

Their tv schedule must look odd :s
We have Poyopoyo over here but I've never watched so I assumed it was around 30 minutes

Yes, kind of. I don't really care though. I'm not going to get a premium account anytime soon. Too expensive. My parents don't even know I have this account :3
And I use adblock. That's not stealing, that's called blocking irritating piece of shit ads.


Black Friday deals is where it's at. I never pay full price on memberships.

A yearly membership from $99 becomes $50. That's around $4.60 a month. Only catch is you have to wait until Black Friday. Start mustering the money now. Mean while you can tune into newly released episodes and see if any guest passes have been dropped. Or if a buddy has them get them to commit giving it to you.

Least you people can do it just watch the ads, it supports Crunchyroll and its their base revenue...If you don't want the site to close down, either pay for an account or AT LEAST be thankful enough to watch a 15 second ad.

The only ad I was seeing was one that told me to subscribe to crunchyroll, which I will once I have a steady income. Besides how would people who want to advertise here know about adblocker doing that persay? Crunchyroll'll still get ad revenue.

If the ad is blocked CR doesn't get any ad revenue, which is one of the problems with ad blocker. Most ads only generate revenue after they have played for a minimum amount of time, for example 5 seconds, but ad-block blocks the ads before they reach the minimum time which results in a financial loss for CR, it's not the same as stealing but it's pretty close.

On the topic of ads on CR, even premium members get ads just not on the video, the main page of CR has a large ad in the background (as well as a banner ad) which is, to say the least, annoying. But I don't use ad blocker to block it, I prefer no-script as it requires some minor technical knowledge to use and is infinitely more useful but DOESN'T block ads in videos.

In summary, I'd prefer it if ad-block were disabled for video based ads as it directly takes funding away from people and places, also, people that can't or won't pay for membership on CR but also use ad-block because they don't want ads shouldn't be allowed to use the CR service, as they are leeches and nobody like leeches.

Never saw this and I like watching 3 minute animes (mostly Poyo and Recorder)...

I'm 14 and I pay for Crunchyroll with my own money (Using Rixty since its the easiest way to pay for me...). I pay because I want to support the anime community and because I really hate ads. I also like to watch the videos in better quality... I think it isn't a waste of money since I watch anime on CR atleast once a day! (i'm such a no life... lol jk :P)

I like to read the comments on episodes because some are interesting but I think some of them are just bashing and complaining... I some times think that the people who are watching these videos legally shouldn't be bashing on the ads(which are annoying but I think were sometimes fun to watch before I had Premium...) since it helps out the site and the people who make the anime...

i've noticed comments more along the lines of "this video is too short!"
or the guest passes one (though not as frequently as before)
or "that OP/Ending was half the video!!" lol
