Seriously, add it to the reasons we may have to go on a fishing trip some time soon...and discuss my unhappiness.

Why do they tell us mere days before expiration on some of these shows? A few of us have things to do besides watch anime and can't cram in a marathon in 5 or 6 days.

Season 1 & 2 was okay to watch. Didnt get SAK: Zero though. Don't get me wrong, I know the story of that one.

It would be cool if there was like a calender on the website that showed us when things expired! I would use it. ALL DAH TIME!

A calendar could be really useful.

Anyway, when the time for a Naruto Marathon comes, I expect to see a notice in FULL RED CAPS on the main page and at least 3 months earlier!

Just out of curiosity: How will this Marathon help Crunchyroll?


Keeps existing customers happier and keeps them visiting the site. More visits to the site means more audience for advertisements; it also leads to retention of paying members, who'll watch the show on CR in its last days instead of going elsewhere. Also just keeping customers happier means keeping customers over time. If they don't announce a series being removed, folks would bitch and whine about it, and stomp their feet and pout and claim they are going to leave CR because CR is so mean and crappy when they don't let us know about news like this.

So, encouraging a marathon is an upbeat way of giving us a heads up that the show won't be around much longer, and we should enjoy it now.

If a show is in my queue, I'd be very disappointed to just have it become unavailable without notice. Likewise if there's a series I've been thinking about watching and haven't got around to putting in my queue. Knowing that it's going away soon is a welcome nudge.

And sometimes it brings to light a series you didn't know about, and would like. That happened to me with Giants. I was really, really glad I got a chance to watch it, but I wouldn't have done so without the Marathon/going away announcement.

So, it makes me happy that CR makes these announcements.

Go ahead and watch the first two seasons, they are actually kind of fun to watch. Stay away from Zero because it is mind numbingly boring


I couldn't agree more.

The first season isn't bad for what it is, decent action with fanservice, but the other two should be avoided at all costs


Okay, maybe I agree with this a little more.
