Is anybody from that era still here? I just realized how much time has passed since I've actually logged in on Crunchyroll and things are A LOT different her now. My profile's embarrassing, my comments 4 years back are terrible, and there's very little anime you can watch without paying. Anyway enough of that. . .

Let's talk about the 06-08 era. You have to admit those years were the best. Crunchyroll was very comfortable with license issues, people were more fun in the forums and some sort of community was developed.

Then came the era of Naruto/Bleach/One Piece being licensed and streaming stopped. Everyone was Rageing (it's embarrassing how much I participated in this) and everyone started threatening the mods to bring back the illegal streams (or at least that's how I remember it). Still those days were fun.

Now I come back 4 years later and Crunchyroll is in a very different world.

So if you have memories of the 06-08 era, please share it here :).

Yeah, I don't think people who were born after 2008 can type.

Ahahaha that I have to agree with, especially after reading some of the threads here.

To help you understand better. The 'born' part refers to creating an account on here.

And now that that is cleared up for the confused people... we can continue this thread.

You said it! Those were the good times indeed. A lot of users quit in 2009 ever since the licensing issues, it's rare to find users from the 06-08 era nowadays.

PRESENT! I just came back recently, not too long I guess. There were a lot of active users during that years and you can communicate with them immediately. CR was like the Facebook for Anime fans back then. Until CR become strict with ownership and license matter.

I'm fairly new here myself, but I'm going to hazard a guess that the choice was either to start doing it legally or to get shut down and be prosecuted. Some fans may not like it, some may even have legitimate, well-reasoned philosophical disagreements regarding the economics and politics of so-called intellectual property, but it's a real issue many Internet companies have to deal with, and while I understand nostalgia, it seems futile to dwell on the past. Crunchyroll is what it is. It still provides a useful service, and I think it does so at a very reasonable price (and I am notorious for my parsimony); it's certainly better than waiting until the home video license and it's much less expensive than buying the series on DVD/BD, for which I often hear fans say they're willing to shell $50/season or more.

Shrug. Just my two cents, for whatever the current exchange rate makes that worth to you.

Yeah, I'm still here. I joined this site in June, 2007. It was the best year of Crunchyroll. Anime was great, people were awesome and things was good. Hey, dude my comments was terrible too. I type like a little kid, doesn't know what am I doing, haha. It was fun as heck. I love it, now it's dead to me. No more Crunchyroll. People using this site for dating now, not anime or to make friends. Little kids dating, some adults too, haha. Crunchyroll live on 06-08!

I used to have an account roughly in 2007 during my High School years. Unfortunately, I filled out my profile at the time and said that I loved having fun with my friends. Needless to say, I received a private message from a "photographer".

I participated as much as I could with the forum and made a few friends. Although, I do remember there being lots of active groups but I never joined any.
When I think back to it, this place seems dead now. The majority of the forum threads are from a good 3 or 4 years ago and most of the original posters have deleted their account.

Oh well, I'm an user from 2007 and I used to taste a little bit of those golden times, anyways... first I was very disappointed, it was some case of denial in my life but as the time passed, I got used to this new CR and mostly I'm still here... not for the anime, just for my friends and buddies ^^
