Less People?
Posted 4/13/12
Just gotta wait for the new shows to begin I guess. Bleach, Gintama and Beelzebub were 3 big shows that all ended like across the same week, so for anyone who watched those 3 shows, they now have 3 less shows to watch (myself included ) there is still plenty more content to watch so we'll just have to wait and see what Crunchyroll add to the rosters in the future. Hopefully it shouldn't have too much of a negative impact though.

i bet some people like me are waiting for a couple of episodes to be out instead of just 1 or 2. for me personally it takes more than one episode on most series for me to get into it.


It's hard to tell on some series just by 1-2 episodes and some just hit you instantly. As some series start out slow, I've been in the habit of giving an extra 2-5 episodes for the hook.

It also depends on the pace of a series too. When you expect a certain pace from certain genre, usually you want to see that pace fairly soon into the series.



And occasionally, they pull a bait-and-switch: the first couple of episodes don't give you a true indication of where the show is going.

If a show doesn't grab you by the end of episode 3, then it probably never will.

Another factor to consider is people watching on alternative devices. I frequently watch new episodes on Roku or Android. Those aps don't have a comment feature, so unless something really strikes me that makes me want to go on-line later, open the episode, and drop in a comment or rate the show, I tend to comment less. I almost always say something and rate episodes I watch through the browser, but like AZ said, sometimes there is just too few words to bother... I think if you look at the MGX forums, you will see that there are still comments being made! Hardly anybody can watch episode 1 of MGX and not at least post a hearty "WTF!!!!!!", or, if they like it as much as I do, praise it up one-side and down the other so the negative comments have some balance to keep from scaring away folks that might have a higher tolerance for bizarreness than those that can't handle the

Just becaus everyone doesn't post in the forum, doesn't mean there is few people visiting CR.
I'll bet that CR has traffic up in the millions
Each day.
