Everyone? No. And my original comment wasn't even directed specifically at you. Strangely, you took the most offense. Mostly, I wasn't impressed with those that seem to lack a sense of perspective. But that's just my opinion. Your mileage may vary.



Everyone it was directed towards. Not no, yes. You had a group in mind. Even if your comment wasn't directed specifically at all. Hence the availability to anyone to comment on it, not that being in the (still unspecified) insulted group is even needed in order to post a valid counterargument..

Nothing strange about it. Doesn't matter who it was directed towards. You lacked specificity and left it open when you had clear options not to (quote, handles, language to address what subset of your audience/readers/posters you were addressing). I took it as directed to someone recent complaining about the lack of ep9, probably not myself. But in review of what others including myself had said, no one had made any statement to warrant the ridiculous "sense of entitlement" comment from you, whether it be considered sarcastic, sardonic, at face value, or whatever you would want us to think of your opinion now.

They were all paying members wondering about the _simulcast_.

And seriously, you're revising the some to not mean everyone in an intended sarcastic comment? Rich. Guess I shouldn't be surprised. I'm still amused at being told sarcasm by someone who was seemingly unable to recognize when it had already been directed right back at him in the very reply they were replying to. But like I already said, you seem easily overwhelmed.

Something that is likely out of CR's control becomes incompetence? Massive assumptions there. And the anger over a slight delay in the broadcast? Does it really matter that much in your life that you can't wait a day or two? Or even a week? It is just a show.

Am I disappointed I can't watch the show today? Yes. But in the grand scheme of things, it really doesn't matter. At least to me.
*shrug*


Um, until we know the details, you're also massive assuming as well when you suggest it isn't, now aren't you.

Besides, posting an explanation and/or timeframe is not out of CR's control whatsoever. That's easily done. And they finally seem to have.

And it's not hard to understand the sentiments of _some_ here. A paid site who licenses, has the raw early, has a large subscriber/revenue base, and hires translators is now behind both the uploaders and the fansubs.

But yeah, *shrug* after you chose to insult and opine.

I'm so sorry that some of us believe in principles, not a sense of entitlement, that part of the deal in paying and supporting something is having that delivered, or receiving some information or adequate explanation of why not.

I honestly do not care who's fault it is. I can wait a day or two even though I thoroughly enjoy this anime and probably enjoy it more than any other anime on the site right now. It is true that I would like CR to have explained in more detail why they could not show the episode, but it isn't like I am going to die because I didn't get to see it that much earlier. I have other anime to watch.

YES Episode 9 awesome... seeing Kirito in action and now getting more challenges

And whats up with that guild man , its very possessive.

WEll if the production was delayed then it will be delayed. I guess CR could announce those so people don't go crazy and cry "Where is my SAO ?!!!"

Well it doesnt bother me there is a delay , I am busy with other stuff anyway and I do try not to go somewhere else but

Grand scheme of things: Crunchy roll didn't deliver. Maybe I'll delay my renewal of my CR premium membership.

Now, please don't call out other's assumptions when you are assumptious yourself. There is no way I could have conveyed the emotion of anger via my keyboard to you, so you must have assumed I was angry over the delay; in fact, I was mellow and enjoying my time in Tyria. It's just a show? NO! It's a MMORPG ANIME! See each release of an episode is similar to me like a MMORPGS release date! FEEL MY ANXIETY THROUGH MY KEYBOARD! MY THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS. TAKE IT.

Anyways, the fact that the episode aired in Japan normally, and isn't available on CR one hour after release as promised, is prove enough of an incompetent nature at fault.

although the delaying of the simulcast was somewhat annoying at least the i can use the rest of the CR site to watch anime. unlike another anime website that i also subscribe to whose website constantly goes down and crashes without so much as a word from the company and can be down for hours. so i still say that CR is ahead of there compition.

I'm going to say this to everyone:
If you were upset about not getting episode 9 on CR without warning, I'm with you. It sucks. Crunchyroll team, people pay money to use this site, so keep the viewers informed about delays. Take responsibility. We all hate these kind of surprises.

If you watched episode 9 somewhere else, SHUT UP!!! SERIOUSLY!!! I don't want to know what happened in episode 9 until I watch it! Nobody else does either! Stop spoiling things! When I see those comments, I don't read them! IS IT SO DIFFICULT TO NOT DO SOMETHING? At the very least, put your ENTIRE post in a spoiler box.

If you want to watch episode 9, be patient. You get at least triple the excitement when you get to watch episode 9 late. Besides, your life doesn't revolve around SAO. You can find another anime to watch or re-watch while you wait. Otherwise, go watch elsewhere. Just don't tell everyone what happened. Please.

You might be one of the world's greatest geniuses to ever exist.

I'm going to wait it out. There is enough good anime out there to keep me busy for weeks. Currently watching Eureka SeveN AO on Hulu, and many others as they come out on CR. Not to mention there is lots of BF3 and Black Ops to be played

I've been on the fence about this anime, waiting for it to turn into Accel Worlds over-dramatic crap. But now I'm hooked, episode 9 was friggin' perfect.
