I watched "Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu" last year on this site, and was recently in the mood to watch it again, only to find out that it's no longer available on this site. I realize that licenses for shows generally have a period of time before they expire, but was a bit saddened to see it gone.

My suggestion is, if a license on a series on your site is going to expire soon, like say at the end of the year, can you guys make an announcement for it? For instance, "X anime streaming license expires in 3 months. Catch it now before its gone!" or something along those lines? I have a ton of shows on queue, and not enough time to watch it all (lol, don't we all), and would hate to have a show then vanish when I want to watch it.

This way, in the event you guys can't or aren't going to renew a license, we can at least have a heads up before its gone from this site and have to look for other means to watch it, most of which may not be as supportive of the anime industry as this site is.

Yeah same I have limited bandwitdth and gb usuage a month so I am very picky on which anime I watch. And I can't watch an anime all in one go either because of that.

Given that theres probably a lot of people that watch anime here but dont visit the forums as much, or at all, licenscing information should be posted with its respective video series in the right column under 'Details', if there is an expiration date associated with it.

You mean like this one in the Site News section of the forum?:

Crunchyroll used to (and still may) list the information in a banner across the top of the page, but people still missed it (as would anyone that watches on a device or directly from the queue).
