Recent list gone?

I usually keep the recent anime release list bookmarked ( http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime/recent ) so I can quickly get access to new episodes, but now it redirects you to the main anime page (the main page also no longer has a 'recent releases' section above the 'coming soon' section).

Is this just a temporary thing or is recent releases completely gone? I've noticed there's the 'updated' section now in the anime list; is this the replacement?

Yeah, the "Updated" section seems to be more or less the same thing. It would be nice if the old "Recent" link would redirect to that at least, as I use that a lot and was really confused at first. What saddens me is that the "Publisher" page appears to be gone, and it doesn't look like there's a replacement for it, looking around.

Updated page is not really the same thing as Recent.

Recent was organized by episodes
Updated is organized by series

When you look at the Recent page, you instantly know exactly which episodes you've missed. You know this because it has the preview covers for all the episodes. We take advantage of the part of the primate brain called pattern recognition and the amydala :-P

When you look at the Updated page, you have to spend a LOT more time because to find out whether you've seen an episode or not, you have to READ that tiny little text on each of album cover. I'm looking for episodes to watch, not series to watch. :-P In fact, I have to visually filter out the series cover art in order to focus in on the little text that describes what I'm missing. Which I don't remember because I don't remember which episodes I watched by their number.

Check out more of the complaints here: http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-755779/feedback-new-site-design?pg=4#39627660

By the way, if you have a smartphone (or at least, an iOS), they have not yet taken Recent episodes out of the app.

Yeah, I'm hoping with all the complaints we'll see the Recent section come back... just a matter of time I guess

I want updated sorted by episodes and the sort by season brought back.

Why make it complicated?

Looking through this thread, I noticed that every poster so far is a premium member. Judging from the amount of "cr points," some of them have been premium members for multiple years (and some since Crunchyroll started the premium member service). Considering that these are people who have been giving money to this site for quite a while, and not just a bunch of freeloaders, there is nothing wrong with them asking for features and functions that they have found to be useful over the years that they have spent using this site.

Personally, I don't want to spend my money on a site that ignores me, and I think that is the feeling that others here have as well. This isn't Facebook, where we just have to suck it up every time a change happens that we don't like, this is a site that we are giving our money to, and are asking for a positive experience in return for that money.

A great example of how the updated page sucks is the new series 'Nyarko-san: Another Crawling Chaos'. Clicking on the series in the updated page brings you to the episode view like usual, but since that series has 3 'seasons' and is put in reverse order, getting to that new episode is a pain.

An even better example is Bleach. Since they're still releasing the older episodes (eg ep 223 this week), you have to somehow dig up the episode from the middle of the episode list (an exercise in frustration) while before you could just click on the ep in the recent list and go right to it.

Has anyone from CR commented on this yet? Seems like many people (most of them being premium subscribers) want the recent list back.
