Dear Crunchyroll,

I do not post much on the forums, but have been an anime subscriber for over a year. I love your streaming service and the high quality you all provide.

If there was one thing which would be greatly appreciated it would be if Crunchyroll would update anime with something when the next episode is not going to come out when the scheduled timer says it will. Yesterday 3 series in a row did not show as the timers claimed they would:

Naruto

Blast of Tempest

Btooom

I checked CR for all 3 of these episodes and then had to figure out when/if these series would be continuing from user comments or searching Animenewsnetwork myself. There was no information at all in the availability section.

I imagine there are things I "Just don't know" about how Crunchyroll works in terms of whether or not you will get to stream the next season, or when the release date is actually available. For two of the above mentioned series this info was pretty easy to find.

Which leads me back to why that information isn't available to your subscribers? If you're not going to post the information and yet you know that the next episode will not be running when the series normally airs, why would you allow the series to appear as if it will still air at the normal time?

Updating the availability section of anime series and taking down the next video place holder would be greatly appreciated by me, how about the rest of the community?

Sincerely,

Nails

btoom is finished :)

Naruto + blast of tempest are delayed due to the new years week. Next eps for them will be on the 10th of Jan I think.. There or there about.

Thanks, Otsohiru, figured this out and see that Crunchyroll has updated this information on their main page in the "Fall Simulcast 2012" section.

Just bothers me that CR doesn't take the 30 seconds to take down the next video link or provide availability on the series main link before the next episode "supposedly airs."
